    International Night has a Thousand Eyes (John Farrow 1948)

    A new Koch Media DVD of this from Germany comes recommended from me. The film itself is a personal favorite Noir and perhaps the most extreme expression of the Cornell Woolrich universe of doomed fatalism. Eddie G and the great Gail Russell give the movie a real feel for melancholy (the score...

    Mr Bongo Chimes at Midnight/Falstaff

    A warning at least until I can get a copy of the actual disc and watch it but I have now seen a spread range of 24 uncompressed screencaps from this and I am - err - appalled.

    International Le Jour se Leve/Daybreak Studio Canal

    I've had the German disc of this for a week now, UK and French release of the same disc scheduled for November. I can only say run don't walk to order it. After Canal and Lab Eclair's superlative 2012 2k restoration of Carne's 1938 masterpiece Quai des Brumes/ Port of Shadows I wondered how...

    I've been checking through this new release which arrived this morning. I believe this is the best it will ever look (and sound!) since the private collector's 35mm IB print last made the rounds.
