Some pictures of the Criterion blu-ray release for director Alfonso Cuarón’s (Gravity) road trip/coming of age film Y Tu Mamá También. As always Criterion delivers an all rounded, fantastic package with great design and plenty of supplementary materials.
The movie itself is a newly restored 2k digital film transfer supervised by director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki, and looks amazing; images are clean and sharp, the colors dynamic but natural.
The jewel case is housed in a cardboard slipcase and the package contains 1 blu-ray, 2 dvds and a booklet featuring an essay by critic Charles Taylor and reprinted character biographies by Carlos and Alfonso Cuarón.
Y Tu Mamá También is one of those films ( like Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums ) which I initially felt little for during my first theatrical viewing but slowly warmed up to on subsequent viewings. A taste that needs a longer time to acquire, perhaps.
This blu-ray by Criterion delivers stately on all fronts and gets my highest recommendations.
