THE MASK OF ZORRO Debuts On 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray May 5th!

Here comes a nice surprise from Sony today! The classic swashbuckling superhero film The Mask of Zorro which starred Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and introduced most everyone to Catherine Zeta-Jones is getting a handsome 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray upgrade coming on May 5th. This is one of the best efforts coming in the wake of Tim Burton’s Batman nine years later and at the end of that run right before X-Men would change the game. I personally saw this one a few times in the theater as it absolutely delivered and saved the day as the best big budget blockbuster film of the summer of 1998. A summer that had a lot of largely hyped films that turned into big disappointments. Sony is giving this one a blistering new 4K transfer from the original negative, an Atmos track and new deleted scenes to make the release fully worthwhile. See the details for yourself below.

‘The Thousand Eyes Of Dr. Mabuse’ [Eureka! Masters of Cinema] on Blu-ray May 11, 2020!

Thousand Eyes Mabuse Blu-rayAfter enjoying fantastic success with Fritz Lang s two-part “Indian Epic” in 1959, German producer Artur Brauner signed the great director to direct one more film. The result would be the picture that, in closing the saga he began nearly forty years earlier, brought Lang s career full-circle, and would come to represent his final celluloid testament by extension: his final film masterpiece. The Thousand Eyes of Dr. Mabuse [Die 1000 Augen des Dr. Mabuse] finds that diabolical Weimar name resurfacing in the Cold War era, linked to a new methodology of murder and mayhem. Seances, assassinations, and Nazi-engineered surveillance tech all abound in Lang s paranoid, and ultimate, filmic labyrinth. One of the great and cherished “last films” in the history of cinema, The Thousand Eyes of Dr. Mabuse provides a stylistic glimpse into the 1960s works on such subjects as sex-crime, youth-culture, and LSD that Lang would unfortunately never come to realize. Nonetheless, Lang s final film remains an explosive, and definitive, closing statement. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Fritz Lang s final film on Blu-ray.

‘Spring Night Summer Night’ on Blu-ray May 5, 2020!

Anderson’s first feature film—the gorgeous and spellbinding Spring Night Summer Night (1967)—is coming soon to Blu-ray in a stunningly restored edition, courtesy of Flicker Alley and Nicolas Winding Refn/byNWR. Italian Neorealism meets the coal-mining country of southeast Ohio in this little-seen wonder of 1960s, American independent cinema. Director J.L. Anderson, a film professor at the University of Ohio, utilized non-professional actors, on-location photography, a shoestring budget, and a passionate knowledge of international film to create what Richard Brody of The New Yorker calls a tense, myth-drenched drama of liberation and retribution.  Continue reading ‘‘Spring Night Summer Night’ on Blu-ray May 5, 2020!’
