NFL great Fred Dryer (TV’s Hunter) is Gunnery Sergeant Burns, the hard-core leader of an elite group of young recon commandos assigned to be a "security force" in the strife-torn nation of Jamal. When a sadistic group of Arab terrorists hijack a cache of weapons and go on a brutal killing spree against the American forces, Burns turns to his own brand of diplomacy. The time for negotiations is over... and one Marine's private war has just begun. Directed by veteran stuntman Terry Leonard (Apocalypse Now), with top-notch cinematography by Oscar-nominee Don Burgess (Forrest Gump) and a rousing score by Brian May (Mad Max). Brian Keith (Sharky’s Machine), Joanna Pacula (The Kiss), Paul Winfield (Gordon’s War) and Sasha Mitchell (Spike of Bensonhurst) star in this explosive action thriller, filmed on location in the military hot spots of the Middle East.

Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint
Directed by Hanna Dyrschka

"One of the best films I've seen about fine art." - Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dyrschka’s dazzling, course-correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

If you could get either BLACK SWAN or THE BLACK SWAN, it would make a nice double feature!

That would depend on whether or not Kino makes another Fox deal (which happens to include both films), which is quite questionable at the moment.
Both The Black Swan (1942) and Black Swan (2010) are already out on blu ray and still readily available on Amazon. Why would Kino release two films still in print on blu ray?

Great news about There’s Always Tomorrow! For me, though, it has nothing to do with Stanwyck. Despite being a fan of the work of both Joan Bennett and Fred MacMurray, I’ve never managed to see this film which features them both. At times I’ve been tempted to purchase the DVD from the Universal Vault Series line, but I just knew it had to get a BD release sooner or later. I’m glad Kino is once again introducing me to what I am sure will be an enjoyable film.

Go for it! A good film with something to say about how breadwinners are often taken for granted. Fred MacMurray, a particular favorite of mine, is excellent.

I know they are out on Blu. I was making a silly comment because they are releasing WHITE Swan, and with BLACK/THE BLACK SWAN it would make a good
Double feature.
