Criterion launches new DVD label. Eclipse will present a short series, usually three to five films, focusing on a particular director or theme. There will be no supplements and the master materials will be the best we can find, but they won’t be full Criterion restorations. Retail pricing for each set will average under $15 per disc. The first set will be early films by Ingmar Bergman. This is exciting news! Reported on the Criterion Collection blog via Twitch.
