New Blu Ray Releases This Week: February 7th 2017

Blu Ray release February 7th with The Sicilian Clan

The Sicilian Clan release on February 7th 2017

Here are our Top 3 new blu-ray releases for the week of February 7th and, this time, we have a pretty varied selection:

First, there is the classic French film noir The Sicilian Clan about a group of Sicilian mobsters pulling an ambitious heist. Directed by Henri Verneuil, it stars Alain Delon (Le Samouraï), Jean Gabin and Lino Ventura with a soundtrack by Ennio Morricone.

Then we have another classic, Buster Keaton’s The General, a silent comedy set in the civil war. This dual blu-ray release also includes Three Ages, a parody of D.W. Griffith s Intolerance.

Talking about intolerance in this day and age, I thought it would be worth mentioning Desierto, a thriller about a vigilante hunting illegal immigrants crossing the desert. Directed Alfonso Cuarón’s son Jonás Cuarón, it stars Gael García Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle, Y Tu Mamá También) and the always sadistic Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead).
