Coming to DVD and Blu-ray February 8th from Kino Lorber!


France
Starring Léa Seydoux, Blanche Gardin, Benjamin Biolay, Emanuele Arioli
Directed by Bruno Dumont


Léa Seydoux (No Time to Die) brilliantly holds the center of Bruno Dumont’s (Li’l Quinquin) unexpected, unsettling new film France, which starts out as a satire of the contemporary news media before steadily spiraling out into something richer and darker. Never one to shy away from provoking his viewers, Dumont casts Seydoux as France de Meurs, a seemingly unflappable superstar TV journalist whose career, home life, and psychological stability are shaken after she carelessly drives into a young delivery man on a busy Paris street. This accident triggers a series of self-reckonings, as well as a strange romance that proves impossible to shake. A film that teases at redemption while refusing to grant absolution, France is tragicomic and deliciously ambivalent—a very 21st-century treatment of the difficulty of maintaining identity in a corrosive culture.

*Optional English subtitles

Princess Tam Tam (1935) and Zou Zou (1934)
Josephine Baker Double Feature!


In the 1930s, black performers were forbidden to steal the spotlight from white actors on the American screen. To circumvent this unwritten law, singer/dancer/comedian Josephine Baker accepted the invitation to work in France. The resulting films—Princess Tam Tam and Zou Zou—reveal what segregationist producers in the U.S. were afraid of: a confident, sexy, scene-stealing African American woman who spewed exuberance, expressiveness and raw charisma like an uncorked bottle of champagne. Princess Tam Tam is a Pygmalion-like comedy in which Josephine Baker stars as a mischievous shepherd girl who rises through society to become a pretend princess and the toast of Paris nightlife. Conceived as a vehicle for Baker, then among Europe’s most popular entertainers, Zou Zou was her debut talking film. In the tradition of 42nd Street, it tells the story of a talented Cinderella (Baker) who saves a show and becomes an overnight sensation. Features Josephine's poignant rendition of “Haiti,” sung while clad in feathers and swinging in a birdcage.


Special features:
*Three 2005 documentary shorts focus on Josephine Baker: “The Woman,” “The Performer, ”and “The Films.” Includes interviews with actress Lynn Whitfield, theater critic Margo Jefferson, dance historian Elizabeth Kendall and Baker’s adopted son Jean-Claude.

*Video tour of Chez Josephine, Jean-Claude Baker’s culinary exhibition of rare Josephine Baker paintings and posters.


* The Fireman of the Folies-Bergère, a 1928 short featuring Baker

*Optional English SDH subtitles

*And more!

Directed by Hollywood legend Orson Welles (Citizen Kane, The Stranger, The Lady from Shanghai), Touch of Evil is a film noir masterpiece whose Hollywood backstory is as unforgettable as the movie itself. Starring Charlton Heston (The Big Country, Ben-Hur), Janet Leigh (The Manchurian Candidate, Psycho) and Welles himself, this dark portrait of corruption and morally compromised obsessions tells the story of a crooked police chief who frames a Mexican youth as part of an intricate criminal plot. With its iconic ticking-bomb opening shot, shadowy cinematography by Russell Metty (Spartacus), evocative score by Henry Mancini (Arabesque) and memorable supporting turns by Akim Tamiroff (The General Died at Dawn) and Marlene Dietrich (Desire), Touch of Evil is a stylistic triumph that stands the test of time. This 3-disc special edition features 4K restorations of three versions of the film: the Theatrical version, the Preview version and the Reconstructed version based on Orson Welles’ original vision.

Looks like a great sale. Is the blu-ray of Queen Margot being offered here a Kino release or something else? I was unsure about it from what I saw on Kino's website and am not even sure of the release date.

Brace yourself for hilarious, action-packed adventure! When a street-smart NYPD cop (Fred Ward, Tremors) regains consciousness after a bizarre mugging, he has a new face and a new identity! Now he’s Remo Williams, the #1 recruit of a top-secret organization, and he’s toppling evil at every turn—even atop the Statue of Liberty—in this ’80s action-comedy classic. Trained by a quirky martial arts master (Joel Grey, Cabaret) to dodge bullets, brave terrifying heights and thwart attackers with his bare hands, Remo becomes the ultimate criminal exterminator. But when he faces off against a corrupt millionaire and his army of henchmen, the real adventure begins! Helmed by Guy Hamilton, the outstanding director of Funeral in Berlin, Force 10 from Navarone, The Mirror Crack’d, Evil Under the Sun and four James Bond classics including Goldfinger and Live and Let Die, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins features stellar support from Wilford Brimley (Hard Target), J.A. Preston (Body Heat), George Coe (The Entity) and Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway of TV’s Star Trek: Voyager).

Edgar G. Ulmer's DAMAGED LIVES (1933) & Eugène Brieux's DAMAGED GOODS (1937)
Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Picture, Volume 13


Eugène Brieux’s play Les Avaries endeavored to bring syphilis out of the shadows and erase the stigma surrounding it. Later adapted by Upton Sinclair into the novel Damaged Goods, the story became the backbone of countless sex hygiene films, in which a young couple’s happiness is overshadowed by the specter of disease. Made just before his influential horror film The Black Cat, Edgar G. Ulmer’s unauthorized rendition of the story (Damaged Lives) is grimly poetic, and deserves a place among the director’s finest work. Often overlooked in the exploitation cycle, Damaged Goods demonstrates how unexpectedly compelling these disreputable little films could be.

Special features:
*Audio commentary for Damaged Lives by Eric Schaefer, author of Bold! Daring! Shocking! True!: A History of Exploitation Films 1919-1959
*Audio commentary for Damaged Goods by Felicia Feaster, author of Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Film
*Four short films directed by Edgar G. Ulmer for the National Tuberculosis Association: Let My People Live (1939), Cloud in the Sky (1940), Goodbye, Mr. Germ (1940), and They Do Come Back (1940)
*Two sex hygiene lecture reels
*Trailers

Looking at the cover I thought this was maybe from the 1970s? But the words "alien abduction" and "UFO" caught my eye. Just looked this up on Letterboxd and IMDB and saw it was a brand new film.... one says 2021 and the other says 2022. Trailer looks very interesting. Plus Emmanuelle Chriqui!! Will definitely be picking this one up.
