“Bowling for Columbine,” John Waters’ “Female Trouble,” Ingmar Bergman’s The “Virgin Spring” and More Added to Criterion Collection’s June Slate

Criterion has announced its upcoming June slate. Coming June 12 in a new 4K restoration is Lino Brocka’s searing 1975 Tagalog-language urban melodrama Manila in the Claws of Light (DVD: 2 discs, $29.95; Blu-ray: $39.95), a candid portrait of a young fisherman from a provincial village who arrives in the capital on a quest to track down his missing girlfriend. Arriving June 19 is the home video debut of Víctor Erice’s haunting 1983 Spanish masterpiece El Sur (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $39.95), an adaptation of a novella by Adelaida García Morales that follows a young girl captivated by her doctor father and his mysterious past. Also on June 19, director Michael Moore joins the Criterion Collection with the release of his Oscar-winning 2002 documentary Bowling for Columbine (DVD: 2 discs, $29.99; Blu-ray: $39.95), an incisive and perennially relevant documentary on gun control in the wake of the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. Coming on June 26 is a 4K restoration of John Waters’ outrageous 1974 melodrama Female Trouble (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $39.95), starring Divine as a teenage nightmare whose egomaniacal impulses land her in the electric chair. Finally, on June 26 also look for a 2K restoration of Ingmar Bergman’s 1960 Swedish Best Foreign Language Oscar-winner The Virgin Spring (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $39.95), a harrowing tale centering on the murder of a virgin and her father’s (Max von Sydow) ruthless pursuit of vengeance.
