Of course, I still despise everything that director Roman Polanski has done in his life, but I will admit that Rosemary’s Baby is still a stunning film. Criterion, who’s already quite familiar with Polanski’s work (stellar editions of REPULSION, KNIFE IN THE WATER, CUL DE SAC already exist), is gifting us with a new Blu-ray and DVD on October 30.

This October 30, Rosemary’s Baby comes to the Criterion Collection and included are:

• New high-definition digital restoration, approved by director Roman Polanski, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition

• New interviews with Polanski, actor Mia Farrow, and producer Robert Evans

• KOMEDA, KOMEDA, a feature-length documentary on the life and work of jazz musician and composer Krzysztof Komeda, who wrote the score for Rosemary’s Baby

• 1997 radio interview with author Ira Levin from Leonard Lopate’s WNYC program New York and Company on the 1967 novel, the sequel, and the film

• Plus, a booklet featuring an essay by critic Ed Park and Levin’s afterword for the 200
