Two Bunuel Classics From Lionsgate

By my disreputable powers of recollection, neither Gran Casino or The Young One have been released on R1 DVD before, so Bunuel fans rejoice: Lionsgate are putting them together in the same 2-disc set and popping it out on August 7th.

Phillip Kemp has recorded a commentary for Gran Casino, Peter Evans and Isabel Santolalla will provide the same for The Young One. Seeing as the masters are coming from Studio Canal, expect a better quality than the shrugged-off Criterion Eclipse range at a directly comparable price point.
