The postman knocked at the door this morning and unexpectedly delivered three brilliant Blu-ray discs from Universal. Labelled the ‘StudioCanal Collection’, these come in cardboard book-style cases, with an 18 page booklet on the movie included in a pocket.
I’m not keen on the cases: especially the way they do not cleanly let go of the disc, making it necessary to flex them.
But the movies themselves: one goody and two greats:
- Sidney Pollack’s 1975 thriller, 3 Days of the Condor (Robert Redford, Faye Dunaway)
- David Lynch’s exceptional 19th century tearjerker, The Elephant Man (8.4 on IMDB) and
- one hit wonder Michael Cimino’s powerful war drama, The Deer Hunter (8.2)
I just love those classics!
