Dreyer's pure masterpiece The Passion of Joan of Arc gets a Criterion Blu-ray release with three scores including Richard Einhorn’s powerful Voices of Light - one of the most emotional film experiences of any era. Criterion also bring us Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Edith Wharton's 1920 novel, The Age of Innocence - to stacked Blu-ray. Beautiful. Staying with Criterion we also get Satyajit Ray's psychologically rich character study The Hero (Nayak) on their Blu-ray label. The controversial British noir No Orchids For Miss Blandish gets a Blu-ray release from Kino as does Norman Jewison's delightful heist-romance The Thomas Crown Affair for its 50th Anniversary. The violent, dark and shocking thriller The Orchard End Murder comes to Region 'A' Blu-ray. Colin reviews one of the more gore-soaked Italian cannibal films of the 70's and 80', Umberto Lenzi's Eaten Alive! on Region FREE Blu-ray from Severin, loaded with over 2-hours of extras. Eureka bring us The Housemaid (2016) to Blu-ray - a beautiful update of the gothic-horror genre out of Vietnam. Arrow have put out Frank Borzage's biographical Magnificent Doll, starring Ginger Rogers, to Region 'B' Blu-ray. William Castle's dream-haunted The Night Walker with Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Taylor comes to Blu-ray from Shout! Factory who also bring us a double-feature of Robert Mitchum as Raymond Chandler’s legendary detective Philip Marlowe in two neo-noir delights Farewell My Lovely /The Big Sleep in modest Blu-ray upgrades. DVD coverage next week....

'Perhaps on your way home you will pass someone in the dark, and you will never know it, for they will be from outer space.' - Plan 9 From Outer Space

Have one heckuva week!


Magnificent Doll BD - Lavishly designed, Magnificent Doll boasts cinematography by five-time Academy Award nominee Joseph A. Valentine, striking outfits by legendary costume designers Travis Banton (best known for his work on a number of Josef von Sternberg s pictures with Marlene Dietrich) and Vera West, and hats by the celebrated milliner and fashion designer Lilly Daché. Blu-ray Release Date: February 19th, 2018

The Housemaid (2016) BD - Linh is a docile and hardworking poor orphaned girl who comes to Sa Cat seeking a housemaid job. Sebastien Laurent is a French captain and owner of the Sa Cat rubber plantation. For years, the massive mansion is rumoured to have ghosts, particularly those of Camille Sebastien s late wife and the mistreated plantation workers. Once Linh comes to Sa Cat, she begins to hear strange sounds, have frightening dreams, and witness bizarre occurrences. After some time, Linh and Captain Laurent become close to each other and develop a romance. However, their love soon awakens the vengeful souls of Sa Cat plantation. Blu-ray Release Date: February 19th, 2018

The Night Walker BD - Following the death of her millionaire husband, Howard (Hayden Rorke), Irene Trent (Stanwyck) endures dreams so real and terrifying, that she finds herself trapped in an eerie world existing between fact and fantasy. Isolated from the world by her husband’s possessive nature, Irene feels there is no one she can turn to except for his personal attorney (Taylor), the only visitor Howard ever allowed to the house. But even as her dreams begin to take vivid shape, Irene begins to walk into a very real nightmare of deception, murder and betrayal. Blu-ray Release Date: February 20th, 2018

Eaten Alive! BD - A dry run for director Umberto Lenzi's more flamboyant Cannibal Ferox, this jungle-set gore-fest is part of a mini-trend in which wealthy Europeans travel to the Third World in search of more riches, only to meet with truly nasty ends. In this one, however, cannibals are subordinated to yet another exploitative treatment of the 1978 tragedy in Jonestown, Guyana, where over 900 people committed mass suicide in the name of People's Temple cult leader Rev. Jim Jones. Blu-ray Release Date: February 20th, 2018

Farewell My Lovely /The Big Sleep BD - The immortal Robert Mitchum stars as Raymond Chandler’s legendary detective Philip Marlowe in the neo-noir mystery Farewell, My Lovely. The hardboiled Marlowe’s latest cases (one, a search for an ex-convict'’s lost love, and the other, the murder of a client) take on an even more sinister turn when they begin to connect, leading the private eye deeper and deeper into the seamy underbelly of 1940s Los Angeles. As the stakes are raised and the body count swells, it looks like Marlowe might be next on the list to take the big sleep. Blu-ray Release Date: February 20th, 2018

No Orchids For Miss Blandish BD - Based on the shocking novel by James Hadley Chase, No Orchids for Miss Blandish is mixture of sex, violence and low morals made it one of the most controversial films of the late 1940s. The story tells of a pampered heiress (Linden Travers) who is abducted on her wedding night by a gang of small time hoods, in what starts out as a jewel robbery and turns into a kidnapping/murder when one of them kills the groom. Despite her terrifying ordeal, Miss Blandish finds herself falling in love with the gang leader, Slim Grisson (Jack LaRue). Blu-ray Release Date: March 20th, 2018

The Orchard End Murder BD - A young woman from the suburbs (Tracy Hyde), bored by a countryside tryst, wanders off to explore her surroundings. When she meets a gnome-like stationmaster and his towering, half-witted railway-worker friend (played by Casualty's Clive Mantle), an initially strange encounter turns sinister among the trees of a nearby orchard. Kino Blu-ray Release date: March 6th, 2018

The Age of Innocence BD - In Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Edith Wharton's 1920 novel, romance between an upper-class gentleman and an ostracized lady is doomed by 19th century New York society. Shortly after his engagement to blandly genteel May Welland (Winona Ryder), Newland Archer (Daniel Day-Lewis) is reacquainted with May's scandalous cousin Ellen Olenska (Michelle Pfeiffer). As the head of an esteemed family, Archer initially uses his standing to try to rehabilitate Ellen's reputation, but he finds himself increasingly drawn to her disregard for the codes of New York manners. Criterion Blu-ray Release Date: March 13th, 2018

The Hero (Nayak) BD - In this psychologically rich character study, written and directed by Satyajit Ray, Bengali film star Uttam Kumar draws on his real-world celebrity to play Arindam Mukherjee, a matinee idol on the brink of his first flop. When Mukherjee boards an overnight train to Delhi to accept an award, a journalist (Sharmila Tagore) approaches him seeking an exclusive interview, which initiates a conversation that sends the actor reeling down a path of self-examination. Blu-ray Release Date: February 13th, 2018

The Passion of Joan of Arc BD - With its stunning camerawork and striking compositions, Carl Th. Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc convinced the world that movies could be art. Renée Falconetti gives one of the greatest performances ever recorded on film, as the young maiden who died for God and France. Long thought to have been lost to fire, the original version was miraculously found in perfect condition in 1981—in a Norwegian mental institution. Criterion Blu-ray Release Date: March 20th, 2018

The Thomas Crown Affair BD - 'Every crime has a personality, something like the mind that planned it' says Vicki Anderson (Faye Dunaway), the sleek insurance investigator trying to figure out the intellect behind a bank robbery so stunning, it has Boston's finest completely baffled. Sophisticated, handsome Thomas Crown (Steve McQueen) has only one worry--what persona he will take on tomorrow. Blu-ray Release Date: February 13th, 2018
