Blow Out 4K UHD

(1981) In the enthralling "Blow Out," brilliantly crafted by Brian De Palma, John Travolta gives one of his greatest performances, as a film sound-effects man who believes he has accidentally recorded a political assassination.

With its jolting stylistic flourishes, intricate plot, profoundly felt characterizations, and gritty evocation of early-1980s Philadelphia, "Blow Out" is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on moviemaking. In a Director-Approved 4K UHD + Blu-ray special edition; with new 4K digital restoration, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack. One 4K UHD disc of the film is presented in Dolby Vision HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features. Formats: 4k UHD with Blu-ray. (The Criterion Collection). Read more here

(1994) One of the defining independent films of the 1990s, Atom Egoyan's mesmerizing international breakthrough takes the conventions of the psychological thriller into bold new territory -- unsettling, dreamlike, and empathetic.

Masterfully weaving together past and present, Egoyan constructs a spellbinding narrative puzzle, the full emotional impact of which doesn't hit until the last piece is in place.

Le corbeau Blu-ray Debut

(1943) A mysterious writer of poison-pen letters, known only as Le Corbeau (the Raven), plagues a provincial French town, exposing the collective suspicion and rancor seething beneath the community’s calm surface. Made during the Nazi occupation of France, this film by Henri-Georges Clouzot was attacked by the right-wing Vichy regime, the left-wing Resistance press, and the Catholic Church, and was banned after the country’s liberation. But some -- including Jean Cocteau and Jean-Paul Sartre -- recognized the powerful subtext to Clouzot’s anti-informant, anti-Gestapo fable and worked to rehabilitate his directorial reputation after the war. "Le Corbeau" brilliantly captures the spirit of paranoid pettiness and self-loathing that turns an occupied French town into a 20th-century Salem.
