| New York, NY - February 27, 2012 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of The Search for One-Eye Jimmy (1994), a lovably offbeat comedy directed by Sam Henry Kass that features a veritable who's who of indie acting talents. |
The Search for One-Eye Jimmy comes to Blu-ray and DVD with a street date of March 6th. The Blu-ray SRP is $29.95, and the DVD SRP is $24.95.
Boasting an all-star cast headed by Nick Turturro (Takers, "NYPD Blue"), Michael Badalucco (O Brother Where Art Thou, Summer of Sam) and Holt McCallany (Fight Club, "Lights Out"), that also includes Jennifer Beals (Flashdance, The Book of Eli), Steve Buscemi (Reservoir Dogs, "Boardwalk Empire"), Academy Award® Nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, The Avengers), Sam Rockwell (Moon,Iron Man 2) and John Turturro (Transformers, Do the Right Thing), The Search for One-Eye Jimmy follows a filmmaker, Les (McCallany), trying to track down one of the locals - One-Eye Jimmy (Rockwell) - who has gone missing in South Brooklyn.
The whole neighborhood gets in on the search, leading a disorganized and uproarious searchparty. Les gets tips from some of the colorful locals, like Disco Bean (John Turturro), who apparently never got the memo that his favorite music (and fashion) was dead, and Colonel Ron (Samuel L. Jackson), a crazed Vietnam vet who spends his time fishing for sneakers in the Gowanus Canal. Eventually, the F.B.I., the Catholic Church and even the Mob all join in the search for the elusive "One-Eye" Jimmy.
This hilarious independent comedy, written and directed by Sam Henry Kass ("Seinfeld"), was almost as lost as the film's title character, having been out of print since the days of VHS and finally making its debut on DVD and Blu-ray in a beautiful new transfer, restored and remastered in high definition.
