    So glad you guys love this film. As Will knows well, I love it, also. It's bonkers!

    And Will, I wish there was a LOL response for what you wrote above. That's a perfect choice!

    My wife saw the trailer for Desert Fury and immediately told me that those two men were lovers. Just from the trailer! How it could have escaped the Code people or the audiences at the time!
    Waiting on the disc to arrive. Mary Astor in color, Mary Astor in anything!

    Aside from the explicitly coded gay aspects which seemed to elude the Guardians of the Code, what's most distinctive about DESERT FURY is Mary Astor, who completely dominates the film.

    I watched an excellent French film on Blu-ray last night: Sauvage (aka Wild), the debut feature of director Camille Vidal-Naquet, starring Félix Maritaud (BPM, Knife+Heart). Though not as explicit as Paris 05:59: Théo & Hugo, there is still quite a bit of nudity (including full-frontal) and sex (one scene apparently prompted walk-outs at Cannes). Despite this, I didn't feel it was exploitative. Instead, it's an edgy, intimate, and at times even beautiful character study of a homeless Parisian hustler, elevated further by the stunning lead performance of Maritaud. Openly gay, he won both the Rising Star Award at Cannes and the Lumière Award for Most Promising Newcomer for Sauvage.



    The Blu-ray was produced by Peccadillo Pictures in the UK and, despite being labeled Region B, was playable in both my Region A and my Region Free players. Extras include interviews with the director & Félix Maritaud and several deleted scenes.

    Thanks, Kenneth!

    I had ordered the US released DVD, but based on your comments will order to UK Peccadillo Pictures Blu-ray.

    I was really impressed with Felix Maritaud's performance in Sauvage, having previously seen him in BPM and Knife+Heart. I look forward to his future projects.

    I don't want to get banned from here but (for anyone interested) before his breakout performances in the above-mentioned films, Maritaud had a less "legitimate" acting career that can be easily researched online. ;)

    LOL! I think it would take more than this to be banned from here. And, hey, everyone has to learn their profession somewhere. Sauvage looks very good. I noticed it's streaming on Amazon Prime for $5.99, also.
