Criterion expectedly gives Frank Capra's pre-code delight a thorough A/V buff and shine, along with excellent supplements that lends more context to Capra the artist than the film itself.
These Monte Hellman productions aren't great "cult" westerns or even great westerns. They're great films, period, and Criterion appropriately honors their elusive, pared, and despairingly and misleadingly plain-spoken brilliance.
A sturdy, few-frills transfer of a film that's only for Robert Altman's most devoted admirers. Those folks will find, among the nonsense, a testament to the filmmaker's invigoratingly adaptable talent and humanity.
Leos Carax's youth masterpiece is one of the great films of the 1980s, though thanks to Carlotta's exceptional transfer, it's easier than ever to appreciate the movie's timelessness.
Few restorations prove as revitalizing and essential as Kino's new 4K Blu-ray for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, which offers the film's sublime shocks in an audio-visual tour de force that radically shames all of its previous home-video presentations.
Thom Anderson's legendary essay film finally comes to home video in one of the most important releases of the year.
This exceptional restoration does justice to this neglected delight, introducing this touchstone of African-American film to a new generation who will find its lessons enduringly relevant.
Milestone Films has gone to great lengths to restore and contextualize Portrait of Jason on this superb Blu-ray, providing home viewers with all the tools necessary to evaluate Ingmar Bergman's highest of compliments for themselves.
This package is a little slim, but it's a miracle that this underappreciated Stuart Gordon horror fantasy has received any attention at all. Horror fans should be appropriately grateful.
Shirley Clarke's abstract portrait of one of America's most revolutionary artists is one of the few jazz films, or music films in general, to not simply explain its subject, but illustrate his mien, and Milestone's release is essential for all fans.
Looking spectacular on Synapse's otherwise barebones Blu-ray, Demons 2 trades in its predecessor's penchant for wall-to-wall gore in favor of surreal shocks and quasi-Cronenbergian craziness.
Some extras would be nice, particularly considering the legends who had their hands in this vibrantly cynical rock horror film, but the lively transfer makes a good case for Demons's gloriously unhinged beauty.
