New Blu Ray Releases This Week: October 20th 2015

Here are our Top 3 blu-ray releases for October 20th, which will take you on three different continents:

Güeros

Gueros blu-ray releaseIf you’ve been reading Plume Noire religiously, you probably already know that Alonso Ruiz Palacios’s Güeros was one of our favorite movies last year after catching it at AFI Fest. Following three young men on a journey involving self-discovery, political consciousness and musical heritage in Mexico City, this black and white Mexican film had the right balance between humor, entertainment, artistry and commentary reaching both regular spectators and cinephiles alike. You can watch the trailer or read our full Güeros review here.

Kwaidan

Kwaidan blu-ray releaseThis Criterion release features Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi’s original cut of Kwaidan which includes a collection of surreal short – ghost – stories based on folklore tales. This 2K digital restoration is supported by special features such as an audio commentary, interviews with the filmmakers, a piece about the original stories as well as an essay plus trailers.

The Benoit Jacquot Collection

The Benoit Jacquot Collection blu-ray releaseHere’s your chance to catch for the first time on Blu-Ray 3 classics by French filmmaker Benoit Jacquot: The Disenchanted, A Single Girl and Keep it Quiet. Starring renowned French actors such as Isabelle Huppert, Virginie Ledoyen and Judith Dodreche, these French movies showcase earlier works from the director who enjoyed international acclaim with its 2012 picture Farewell, My Queen.

That said, let’s also mention a couple Eric Rhomer films – The Marquise of  O … and Full Moon in Paris – for French film aficionados as well as the elephant in the room – or I should say dinosaur – the decent and entertaining Jurassic World.
