Criterion Plans A Release For Parasite And Memories of Murder

Posted by at 2:53 pm on February 13, 2020

 

After Winning the Best Picture Oscar, Parasite is getting a major re-release this weekend and the recently announced re-release of 2003’s Memories of Murder, distributor NEON and videophile label Criterion have exciting news for Bong Joon-ho fans.

The pair have announced that both of those aforementioned films from the Korean auteur will be coming to the Criterion Collection later this year. Both are expected to be special editions packed with extras, but there are no actual dates for the releases as yet. They will mark the first time Bong’s films have received the Criterion treatment.

Parasite came to Blu-ray in a bare-bones standard release, and sadly there was no 4K UHD disc made available – even as a 4K Digital HD version is not available to buy or rent on the major services.

Criterion has yet to do any 4K releases.
