The UK division of StudioCanal, Optimum Home Entertainment, will be releasing six classic Miramax titles in the UK on 19th September.
This intense thriller from the Days of Glory director set in post-World War II France finds three displaced Algerian brothers caught up in the fight to liberate their homeland from the French colonialists.
Music video director Romain Gavras makes his feature film debut with this complex, bleak, and sometimes violent road rage film about two outcasts brought together by the coincidence of their hair color. The 1080i/50 transfer doesn’t do the film justice, but its worth watching nonetheless.
The Silent House is an interesting horror concept poorly executed, which results in a dull movie and a bad HD experience.
This Guillermo Del Toro produced horror/thriller offers up a good scare for the first two acts and a bit of disappointing finale, but the Blu-ray release from Optimum is pure home theatre heaven.
This classic Ealing Studios post-war comedy is given a nice spruce up on Blu-ray and ready to grace the shelves of cinephiles.
A classic British madcap crime caper, directed by Charles Crichton, who would go on to direct another such film, A Fish Called Wanda, The Lavender Hill Mob arrives in a wonderfully spruced up and feature rich 60th Anniversary Blu-ray Edition from Optimum Home Entertainment.
Nic Roeg’s visionary horror film, Don’t Look Now, arrives on Blu-ray with a director-approved transfer and a good amount of new extras from the folks at Optimum.
This 1953 classic about the battle in the North Atlantic arrives on Blu-ray with a competent AVC transfer from Optimum’s Classic label and is a worthy addition to any library of war film fans.
Biutiful is a wonderfully complex human drama from the director of Babel and 21 Grams. It comes to Blu-ray from Optimum Home Entertainment looking nicely cinematic.
