The Heroes at the Criterion Collection have brought us two early works by renowned filmmaker Costa-Gavras, a very politically inclined director who has spent his career describing the way governments and industry and capital in general has caused wholesale violence and destruction throughout history. First is his 1970 film THE CONFESSION (@ BLU SALE) takes place in Communist Czechoslovakia and concerns a dilligent bureaucrat who finds himself arrested, tortured, and made to confess to crimes he never committed.

 

Second, there's 1972's STATE OF SIEGE (@ BLU SALE), with Yves Montand as an American diplomat kidnapped by radical leftists who want him to help expose the collusion between their government's dictatorship and the CIA, loosely inspired by the true story of an FBI agent who was assassinated by Uruguayan guerrillas. 

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Criterion also has some early Fassbinder with THE MERCHANT OF FOUR SEASONS (@ BLU SALE). Some juicy demonic possession goodness in LET US PREY (BLU). Notorious gore-fest CANNIBAL FEROX (@ BLU SALE) lands on blu-ray. Spike Lee's DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS (BLU) is his remake of GANJA & HESS. Famous video nasty ISLAND OF DEATH (@ BLU SALE) is now on blu-ray from Arrow and beloved 80s slasher MADMAN (@ BLU SALE) is out from Vinegar Syndrome. Two Golan-Globus ninja classics: ENTER THE NINJA (@ BLU SALE) and REVENGE OF THE NINJA (@ BLU SALE). Shout Factory has two killer animal double features with FOOD OF THE GODS / FROGS (@ BLU SALE) and EMPIRE OF THE ANTS / JAWS OF SATAN (@ BLU SALE). MAN, PRIDE & VENGEANCE (@ BLU SALE) is a spaghetti western version of Bizet's opera "Carmen". And there's a very cool French silent animated film called MINUSCULE (@ SALE)...think Looney Tunes meets MICROCOSMOS.
