PR A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night on Blu-ray & DVD Apr 21

A Girl Walks Ho

A joyful mash-up of genre and prolific influences spanning spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. While comparisons have been made to Jarmusch, Lynch, Tarantino, and Sergio Leone, the film is wholly original and refreshingly daring, signaling the arrival of a bold new voice with writer/director Lily Amirpour.

Directed by Philippe de Broca and arriving in the wake of the newly popular James Bond films, these were a riotous cut above the many 007 spoofs that spilled forth worldwide. In the first, set against the beauty of Brazil, Jean Paul Belmondo and Francoise Dorleac are in hot pursuit of a stolen Amazonian statuette, while others pursue them for the same treasure. In the second, Belmondo plays a bored and recently bankrupted millionaire who is convinced to allow someone to murder him so that he can leave the insurance money in his will. He's fine with the plan until he meets a stunning stripper (Ursula Andress).

For Ever Mozart

From Jean-Luc Godard, this densely packed rumination on the need to create order and beauty in a world ruled by chaos is divided into several distinct but related stories, chiefly the attempts by an idealistic French acting troupe to stage a play in war-torn Sarajevo. Along their journey, they are captured and held in a POW camp. Amid the gunfire of war, an elderly director struggles to complete his film.

PR Shinsuke Ogawa's Red Persimmons Out on DVD

Shinsuke Ogawa'

From legendary Japanese director Shinsuke Ogawa (A Summer in Narita, Peasants of the Second Fortress, The Building of the Iwayama Tower) and his disciple, feminist filmmaker Peng Xiolian (Shanghai Story, A Woman of Substance). Red Persimmons is a visually elegant paean to the cultivation and harvesting of the sweet red fruit in the tiny Japanese village of Kaminoyama. The film's larger subject, however, is the disappearance of Japan's traditional culture, the end of a centuries-old way of life. Begun by Ogawa in the late 1980s.

PR Police, Adjective on DVD Aug 30

Police, Adjecti

Cristi (Dragos Bucur) is a young undercover cop who undergoes a crisis of conscience when he is pressured to arrest a teenager who offers hashish to classmates. Not wanting to ruin the life of a young man he considers merely irresponsible, Cristi must either allow the arrest to weigh on his conscience, or face censure by his self-serious superior (Vlad Ivanov, of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), for whom the word "conscience" has an entirely different meaning. Porumboiu approaches his story with the exacting patience of a master ironist, culminating in one of the most unexpected comedic payoffs in years—an extraordinary dissection of language that affirms his reputation as one of the most exciting new talents in European cinema.

PR Criterion Collection September Titles

Criterion Colle

This September, two of the greatest, as well as the most unorthodox, films about World War II will come to the Criterion Collection, in both Blu-ray and DVD editions. Terrence Malick's star-studded (Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Woody Harrelson), multiple-Oscar-nominated James Jones adaptation The Thin Red Line is a staggering accomplishment, a profoundly moving, existential trip to war's heart of darkness, set during the battle for Guadalcanal. And Nagisa Oshima's extraordinarily bold Japanese POW camp drama Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, starring David Bowie as a mysterious prisoner targeted by an obsessive camp commander, is one of the controversial director's most acclaimed and beloved films. Plus, two jazzy sixties hits—Godard's Breathless, with Jean-Paul Belmondo, celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, and Stanley Donen's Charade, starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant—come out in new Criterion Blu-ray editions.
