New Blu Ray Releases This Week: August 4th 2015

Night and the City Blu-ray release

For a short moment, I thought about skipping this week’s Blu-ray releases and this wasn’t because I felt lazy or overwhelmed by the heat. The truth is that there isn’t really anything worth our attention this week – except for one Criterion release – which I’m assuming has to do with people being on vacations.

There’s a Danish western, The Salvation, which I might give a shot at, most particularly because it stars the intense Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt) and my favorite French femme fatale Eva Green (The Dreamers).

This Week’s Pick

Our pick this week goes to Night and the City, a 1950 thriller starring Richard Widmark and Gene Tierney.  This movie was directed by Jules Dassin, a filmmaker who was blacklisted during the production of this film – after moving to Paris, he was able to revive his career with the classic French Film Noir Rififi.
