First up, the Heroes at the Criterion Collection have released one of the sexiest and scariest movies of the 1970s, Nicolas Roeg's DON'T LOOK NOW (@ BLU SALE). Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie play a couple mourning the sudden accidental death of their young daughter, and retreat to Venice to get themselves back together. Trouble is, she starts believeing that they're being haunted by the little one's ghost, and he starts having terrifying premonitions that seem to be involved with a series of local murders. Roeg's allusive editing and repeated visual motifs make this a beautiful and confoundingly suspenseful classic.

 

Speaking of tumultuous marriages, take a look at the blackly comic FORCE MAJEURE (@ BLU SALE), about a middle-class couple whose relationship unravels after a near-accident at a ski resort. 

 

And then there's NIGHTCRAWLER (@ BLU SALE), another super-black comedy, this one about a sociopath (played with a genuinely creepy nervous intensity by Jake Gyllenhaal) who stumbles into a lucrative and successful career as a freelance news photographer, chasing car accidents and all other manner of nasty crimes around the city to scrape up a quick buck. 

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Disney has finally released the wonderful 101 DALMATIANS (@ BLU SALE) to blu-ray. Local filmmaking luminary Lynn Shelton has a new film, LAGGIES (@ BLU SALE). Those Criterion heroes also bring us Jean Renoir's 1936 short A DAY IN THE COUNTRY (@ BLU SALE). Little seen 1942 musical SYNCOPATION (@ BLU SALE) has been lovingly presented on blu-ray. Jeremy Renner plays the real-life reporter that blew the whistle on the CIA/crack connection in KILL THE MESSENGER. Kino Lorber has THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING (@ BLU SALE) out...In Soviet Russia, blu-ray watches you! The Daily Show's Jon Stewart wrote and directed ROSEWATER (@ BLU SALE), the true story of a journalist imprisoned in Iran. Ethan Hawke time travels in PREDESTINATION (BLU). HBO's OLIVE KITTERIDGE (BLU) is a fantastic adaptation of Elizabeth Strout's novel. Long beloved children's book ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD VERY BAD DAY (BLU) has also been turned into a movie. And for horror fans, Scream Factory has two goofy double feature discs, LOVE AT FIRST BITE / ONCE BITTEN (@ BLU SALE) and VAMPIRE'S KISS / HIGH SPIRITS. Then there's classic German zombie artsploitation with NEKROMANTIK 2 (@ BLU SALE), and finally VIDEO NASTIES: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE PART 2 chronicles Great Britain's censorship of horror films in the 70s and 80s.
