The big release this week is Flicker Alley’s EARLY WOMEN FILMMAKERS: AN INTERNATIONAL ANTHOLOGY (@ BLU). More women worked in film during its first two decades than at any time since. Unfortunately, many early women filmmakers have been largely written out of film history, their contributions undervalued. This necessary and timely collection highlights the work of 14 of early cinema’s most innovative and influential women directors, re-writing and celebrating their rightful place in film history.
As for the rest, don’t forget to check out the following: The heroes at the Criterion Collection have Bogey in THEY LIVE BY NIGHT (@ BLU). Batman’s back, in Lego form, in THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE (@ 3D BLU). JOHN WICK CHAPTER 2 (@ BLU) is the best action movie of the year so far. Vintage slasher goodness from Arrow in MADHOUSE (@ BLU). Two rarities from Vinegar Syndrome, women-in-prison gem SWEET SUGAR (@ BLU) and ultra-rare Russian action film RED MOB (@ BLU). Paul Naschy’s directorial debut INQUISITION (@ BLU). Depardieu is Christopher Columbus in 1492: CONQUEST OF PARADISE (@ BLU). Legendary musicians on legendary instruments in AMERICAN EPIC (@ BLU).
