It’s Labor Day weekend, a notoriously slow week for home video releases, but the Heroes at the Criterion Collection are here to save us with two great, hard-to-see films from the legendary Orson Welles, both fully restored and loaded with extras. First is CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT (@ BLU), an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Falstaff tales…
And then there’s THE IMMORTAL STORY (@ BLU), his first color film and his final narrative feature.
As for the rest, don’t forget to check out the following: Disney’s stunning live-action remake of THE JUNGLE BOOK (@ BLU). Fritz Lang’s DESTINY (@ BLU) is as if the master behind METROPOLIS had made THE SEVENTH SEAL. Try some Dublin Soul in THE COMMITMENTS (@ BLU). Rudy Ray Moore’s amazing THE DISCO GODFATHER.
