New Releases for August 18!

by Bryan Theiss

This week we have some noir, some murder mystery, some WWII, some unsettling documentaries, some Paul Schrader, a couple of super heroes (one animated and Rated R, one live action and LGBT), some very dark comedy, a super-deluxe re-release of a Vin Diesel classic, Flash Gordon in 4K-Ultra HD, and much more!

And hey, remember last week we got in that Criterion box set of the complete films of Agnes Varda? This week we have another incredible blu-ray box set honoring the complete works of an icon of international cinema: Arrow’s Gamera: The Complete Collection. All twelve of the giant flying turtle’s adventures are presented on eight discs, which we’re making available as separate rentals. Scroll to the bottom to see the list of films, or keep reading for non-turtle-related entertainment!

All of this great stuff is available to rent by mail or from our pickup window.
