The coolest new title this week is definitely Peter Greeaway's long-out-of-print THE PILLOW BOOK (@ BLU SALE). Loosely based on a Japanese text that dates to around the year 1000, it follows a present-day Japanese woman searching for a lover that can match her voracious sexual appetites as well as sharing her love for calligraphy and poetry. Spanning centuries and jumping from color to black and white, it's an ambitious cinematic collage finally given a nice transfer on blu-ray

 

On the other side of the cinematic spectrum, we've also got three vintage Pam Grier blaxploitation films. COFFY (@ BLU SALE), FOXY BROWN (@ BLU SALE), and FRIDAY FOSTER (@ BLU SALE) are all great and they all make it clear that Pam Grier is one of the most iconic actresses of all time. Like FOXY's tagline says, "She's brown sugar and spice, but if you don't treat her nice, she'll put you on ice!"

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Colin Firth makes a pretty good James Bond alternative in KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE (BLU). Five classic films from 1939, one of cinema's greatest years, arrive on blu in THE GOLDEN YEAR COLLECTION (@ BLU SALE), including DARK VICTORY (@ BLU SALE), DODGE CITY (@ BLU SALE), THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME (@ BLU SALE), and Lubitch's beloved NINOTCHKA (@ BLU SALE). Some cool horror this week with SLEEPAWAY CAMP II (@ BLU SALE) and SLEEPAWAY CAMP III (@ BLU SALE), and from Arrow there's Brian Yuzna's class-warfare splatterfest SOCIETY (@ BLU SALE). The story of the unstoppable Soviet hockey team is told in documentary RED ARMY (@ BLU SALE). There's adorable new teen movie THE DUFF (BLU). On the animation front there's the kids' classic with the earworm theme song THE LAST UNICORN (@ BLU SALE), and some Super-Marionation madness with THUNDERBIRDS: THE COMPLETE SERIES (@ BLU SALE).
