Trilogy of Life In the early 1970s, the great Italian poet, philosopher, and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini ("Salo, or The 120 Days of Sodom") brought to the screen a trio of masterpieces of premodern world literature: Giovanni Boccaccio's "The Decameron" (1971), Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales" (1972) and "The Thousand and One Nights" (often known as "The Arabian Nights") (1974) and in doing so created his most uninhibited and extravagant work, which he titled his "Trilogy of Life." In this brazen and bawdy triptych, the director set out to challenge consumer capitalism and celebrate the uncorrupted human body while commenting on contemporary sexual and religious mores and hypocrisies. His scatological humor and rough-hewn sensuality leave all modern standards of decency behind; these are physical, provocative, and wildly entertaining films, all extraordinarily designed by Dante Ferretti and featuring evocative music by Ennio Morricone. New high-definition digital restorations of all three films, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks on the Blu-ray editions. Formats: DVD, Blu-ray Disc. Extras: New visual essays by film scholars Patrick Rumble and Tony Rayns on "The Decameron" and "Arabian Nights," respectively; new interviews with art director Dante Ferretti and composer Ennio Morricone about their work with Pasolini, and with film scholar Sam Rohdie on "The Canterbury Tales"; "The Lost Body of Alibech" (2005), a 45-minute documentary by Roberto Chiesi about a lost sequence from "The Decameron"; "The Secret Humiliation of Chaucer" (2006), a 47-minute documentary by Chiesi about "The Canterbury Tales"; "Via Pasoli; "Pier Paolo Pasolini and the Form of the City" (1974), a 16-minute documentary by Pasolini and Paolo Burnatto about the ancient Italian cities Orte and Sabaudia; deleted scenes from "Arabian Nights," with transcriptions of pages from the original script; Pasolini-approved English-dubbed track for "The Canterbury Tales"; trailers; a booklet featuring essays by critic Colin MacCabe; Pasolini's 1975 article "Trilogy of Life Rejected," excerpts from Pasolini's Berlin Film Festival press conference for "The Canterbury Tales," and a report from the set of "Arabian Nights" by critic Gideon Bachmann. (The Criterion Collection).

Weekend (1967) This scathing late-sixties satire from Jean-Luc Godard is one of cinema's great anarchic works. Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous centerpiece sequence in which the camera tracks along a seemingly endless traffic jam, and rich with historical and literary references, "Weekend" is a surreally funny and disturbing call for revolution, a depiction of society retreating to savagery, and according to the credits, the end of cinema itself. New, restored high-definition digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition. Formats: DVD, Blu-ray Disc. Extras: New video essay by film critic Kent Jones; archival interviews with actors Mireille Darc and Jean Yanne and assistant director Claude Miller; excerpt from a French television program on director Jean-Luc Godard, featuring on-set footage of "Weekend" shot by filmmaker Philippe Garrel; trailers; a booklet featuring an essay by critic and novelist Gary Indiana.
