More Rossellini on DVD
Following up on my blog about Criterion's upcoming release— Roberto Rossellini's The Taking of Power By Louis XIV— there is more Rossellini on the way. Before Criterion's January '09 release, Lionsgate has The Director's Collection 2-disc DVD which contains Rossellini's mid-career films: Dov'e La Liberta...?/Where Is Freedom? (1953) and Era Notte A Roma/ Escape By Night (1960), on DVD for the first time in the U.S. next month. It's definitely a good time to start discovering his work.
