Altman and Hallström will get the Criterion treatment in August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion has just revealed '3 Women' is being prepared for Blu-ray on September 13.
In a dusty California resort town, a naïve Southern waif finds her role model in a fellow nurse, but her hero-worship evolves into something stranger and more sinister than either could have anticipated. Robert Altman’s dreamlike masterpiece careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p, an uncompressed mono soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio commentary by director Robert Altman, Rare production and publicity stills, original theatrical trailers and television spots, and a booklet featuring an essay by critic David Sterritt.
Criterion is also readying 'My Life as a Dog' for Blu-ray on the same date.
'My Life as a Dog' tells the story of Ingemar, a working-class twelve-year-old sent to live with his uncle in a country village when his mother falls ill. Once there, Ingemar finds refuge from his misfortunes and unexpected adventure with the help of the town’s warmhearted eccentrics.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, an uncompressed mono soundtrack, and supplements will include: Shall We Go to My or Your Place or Each Go Home Alone? (1973), a fifty-two-minute film by Hallström; Video interview with Hallström from 2003; original theatrical trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by film critic Michael Atkinson and an appreciation by the late author Kurt Vonnegut.
Suggested list price for each of the Blu-rays is $39.95.
