Criterion has announced that they will be releasing Kieślowski’s masterpiece The Decalogue on DVD and Blu-ray on September 27, 2016. The film features a 4K transfer and tons of extras, including the full-length versions of A Short Film About Killing and A Short Film About Love.
This ten-part series originally aired in Poland in 1989 before being released worldwide. Each part is an hour-long short film dealing with a different commandment in a loose way. Each story is complex and very moving. The Decalogue has been released in the US before by Facets, but the quality left a lot to be desired. This is one of my absolute favorite films from one of my absolute favorite directors, so I’m ecstatic we’re finally getting a 4K restoration from Criterion.
