New on Blu-ray: LE CORBEAU / THE RAVEN (1943) - Criterion Collection

Le Corbeau The Raven 1943 New On Bluray Criterion

Product Description: Henri-Georges Clouzot’s controversial fable of paranoia and slander in a Nazi-occupied French town—now on Blu-ray A mysterious writer of poison-pen letters, known only as Le Corbeau (the Raven), plagues a provincial French town, exposing the collective suspicion and rancor seething beneath the community’s calm surface.

Made during the Nazi occupation of France, this film by Henri-Georges Clouzot was attacked by the right-wing Vichy regime, the left-wing Resistance press, and the Catholic Church, and was banned after the country’s liberation. But some—including Jean Cocteau and Jean-Paul Sartre—recognized the powerful subtext to Clouzot’s anti-informant, anti-Gestapo fable and worked to rehabilitate his directorial reputation after the war.

Le Corbeau brilliantly captures the spirit of paranoid pettiness and self-loathing that turns an occupied French town into a twentieth-century Salem.
