This week the Heroes at the Criterion Collection have Sam Peckinpah’s beautiful, brutal, and very controversial story of violence and thwarted masculinity, STRAW DOGS (@ BLU). This is a real slow-burner but even to this day it’s graphic depictions of both murder and sexual assault remain extremely divisive amongst cinephiles and critics. But Peckinpah’s bitter worldview and tremendous control of style can’t be denied.
As for the rest, don’t forget to check out the following: Also from Criterion, Hitchcock’s serial killer thriller THE LODGER (@ BLU). THE APPLE (@ BLU) is the craziest sci-fi rock musical ever. The boys are back in TRAINSPOTTING – T2 (@ BLU). Toshiro Mifune and Lee Marvin finish off WWII in HELL IN THE PACIFIC (@ BLU). Don’t mess with NURSE SHERRI (BLU). That old TV show CHIPS (BLU) got a modern movie update. All six Peter Sellers Clouseau movies are in the PINK PANTHER FILM COLLECTION (@ BLU). All aboard the cannibal train in DEATH LINE (@ BLU).
