First up, the Heroes at the Criterion Collection have brought us the late Edward Yang’s long hard-to-see masterpiece A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY (@ BLU). Never before released on home video, this sprawling four-hour film chronicles the displaced youth of Taiwan and the consequences of modernity encroaching on tradition.
Then, one of the greatest exploitation films of all time is here from Arrow. BLACK MAMA, WHITE MAMA (@ BLU), a loose remake of THE DEFIANT ONES, with Margaret Markov and Pam Grier chained together and escaping from a women’s prison deep in the jungle!
As for the rest, don’t forget to check out the following: The final installment of YA Sci-fi juggernaut THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2 (BLU). Will Ferrel and Mark Wahlberg are duelling dads in DADDY’S HOME (BLU). Vintage creep-outs on blu-ray with DONOVAN’S BRAIN (@ BLU) and Bela Lugosi in THE BLACK SLEEP (@ BLU). You’d think Peter Fonda could handle a little acid in THE TRIP (@ BLU). And everyone’s favorite unfairly-cancelled TV show, FREAKS AND GEEKS: THE COMPLETE SERIES (@ BLU).
