Garv’s Pick of the Week: Seven Beauties (Kino Lorber)

Our weekly new release recommendations

For the release week of 9/12/17:

Garv’s Pick of the Week: The best of a solid release week is Lina Wertmüller’s masterpiece of dark comedy Seven Beauties [Blu-ray / Kino Lorber].  The incredibly expressive Giancarlo Giannini stars as a weak, cowardly, small-time Italian hood who will do whatever it takes to survive during World War II, in a story that involves murder, feigned insanity, desertion, imprisonment, and worse.

Additional Titles of Interest —

Swept Away [Blu-ray / Kino Lorber]: Another Lina Wertmüller masterwork debuts on Blu-ray today.  You can find my full review here.

Erik The Conqueror [Blu-ray + DVD / Arrow Video]: Delayed from a previous week, Mario Bava’s Viking epic gets its Blu-ray release today.  I’ve also given this one a full review.

The Fox With A Velvet Tail [Blu-ray / Mondo Macabro]: This rare, psychological Spanish giallo gets a standard release from Mondo Macabro (after a brief, sold-out limited edition release).

Night Gallery: The Complete Series [DVD / Universal]:  Imagine, if you will, a chain-smoking writer/producer/on-camera narrator trying to follow-up an iconic sci-fi anthology series with a horror series where the stories spring out of the paintings in a macabre art gallery.  There’s no need to imagine.  The complete series has been collected in this DVD set.

It appears that Arrow Video’s releases of Don't Torture A Duckling [Blu-ray + DVD] and The Suspicious Death of a Minor [Blu-ray + DVD] , originally scheduled for this week, have been delayed.  Amazon currently lists them as available October 3rd.  They’ll be high on my list when they eventually come out.
