Before entering the world of filmmaking, Neil Jordan was a writer and novelist working in his native Ireland. His introduction to making movies came courtesy of John Boorman, who first hired him as part of the crew – as a “creative associate” – on Excalibur (1981) and shortly after that, served as executive producer Jordan’s first feature film Angel (1982); Jordan’s breakthrough feature was Mona Lisa, a neo noir mixed in with a little romance. Previously released on DVD by Criterion, it has been revisited and upgraded for this Blu-ray release.
