  • Olive Signature Relaunches with Limited Edition Blu-rays

    Interesting things are afoot at Olive Films.  They released a press release today regarding the future of their Olive Signature line, and I think their plans for preserving their prestige sub-label make tremendous sense.  Their prior special editions — High Noon, Johnny Guitar, The Quiet Man, etc. — have been...
  • Rare Lon Chaney and Occult-Themed Silents

  • The Love God? (1969)

    The late Sixties was a time when cinema pushed the boundaries of what was considered acceptable film fare.  Movies such as Bonnie and Clyde (1967) and The Wild Bunch (1969) went further than ever before in depicting screen violence.  Titles such as The Pawnbroker (1964), Blow-up (1966), and Midnight Cowboy (1969) broke...

  • The Apartment (1960) Limited Edition Blu-Ray

    Arrow Academy announced today that they will release a limited edition Blu-ray of The Apartment (1960) from a new 4K restoration.  Billy Wilder’s Best Picture-winning film has always been a personal favorite of mine, so I considered this release a “must buy!” It appears that all of the extras...

  • Seven Beauties (Pasqualino Settebellezze, 1975)

    The movies are an entertainment medium, but they are also an art form.  Consequently, there is a huge variance in quality, even amongst well-made films.  There are good films.  There are great films.  There are four-star films.  Then, there are those very rare films that transcend the medium and...
