  • 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...
  • Kino Lorber Studio Classics Announcements

    During the past week, Kino Lorber Studio Classics announced a few interesting classic titles, and I’m playing catch-up listing them here at the Bottom Shelf.  These titles don’t have set release dates as yet, but they are expected in December or early 2017.

  • 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...

  • MVD Rewind Collection

    They say that physical media is dying, but I don’t think it will ever truly die.  Large studio labels may eventually decide that it isn’t worthwhile to continue producing DVDs, Blu-rays, and 4K UHD discs; but smaller labels, with their pulse on the collector’s market, will continue to cater...
  • Don’t Torture a Duckling (Non si sevizia un paperino, 1972)

    Don’t Torture a Duckling is a grubby, nasty, unpleasant little thriller… and I look forward to watching it again.  While technically a giallo, it is one of the most unusual films in the genre, as it avoids many of the calling cards of gialli — black gloves, knives, an...
