This is a couple of weeks late, but I only just heard about it:



"As of yesterday afternoon [August 1st], Home Vision Entertainment ? co-distributor of the Criterion Collection ? was consolidated by Image Entertainment and no longer exists as a DVD imprint or distributor. 40 of their 45 staff are to be laid off. Given the radically different standards of quality control between Image and HVE, we are alarmed at this development, which is apparently the latest panic move by an industry facing the Blu-Ray/HD-DVD transition. The Criterion Collection is an independent company and sources say the merger formalizes a 100% distribution deal between Image and Criterion lasting through the end of 2010."



That's a shame. Image can be distressingly shabby with their DVDs at times. Hopefully it won't impact the distribution of the Criterion Collection too much.

I've got my fingers crossed. Both hands.
