Not seen this looks like something I'd enjoy (the film not the artwork).


LIMITED TO ONLY 1,000 COPIES

Featuring TWO full-length audio commentaries: a brand new commentary by film journalist (and lifelong film noir enthusiast) Matthew Turner
and a second commentary by film historian Imogen Sara Smith (courtesy of Kino Lorber)




The Library of Congress have a nice 1080p version on YouTube already.


Not sure about Plumeria's artwork choices up to now (pretty damn ugly especially that one above -why not give collectors a double-sided cover? Or bring in Graham Humphreys who is just one of many great artisits in the UK) but would have liked this artwork (which Kino utilised on their release here):

Didn't know that -certainly familar faces to me just having a quick look through the film.

I'll definitely be picking it up.
