"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

Director: Van Neistat

Featuring: Tom Sachs, Sam Ratanarat, Mary Eannarino, Hailey Benton Gates, Evan Murphy

Synopsis: In A Space Program, presented in its definitive Director’s Cut, internationally acclaimed artist Tom Sachs takes us on an intricately handmade journey to the red planet, providing audiences with an intimate, first-person look into his studio and methods. The film is both a piece of art in its own right and a recording of Sachs’ historic piece, Space Program 2.0: MARS, which opened at NYC’s Park Avenue Armory in 2012.

For Space Program 2.0: MARS, Tom and his team built an entire space program from scratch. They were guided by the philosophy of bricolage: creating and constructing from available yet limited resources. They ultimately sent two female astronauts to Mars in search of the answer to humankind’s ultimate question…are we alone? This special Blu-ray edition also includes the theatrical cut of the feature and seven short films by Tom Sachs and Van Neistat.

Bonus Features:

DVD SRP: $19.95

Comedy-Thriller / 93 min / NR / Color

Director: Bertrand Blier
Starring: Gerard Depardieu, Bernard Blier, Jean Carmet, Genevieve Page, Carole Bouquet, Michel Serrault

Synopsis: Buffet Froid (Cold Cuts, 1979) is a beguiling black comedy from director Bertrand Blier (Going Places) starring Gérard Depardieu. Depardieu plays unlucky Alphonse, who keeps stumbling upon corpses, both of strangers and of ones he loves. He drops his knife on the subway, only to find it sticking out of a dying man, and death seems to stalk him in bizarrely surreal ways the rest of the movie. He reports the stranger’s demise to his police inspector neighbor (Bernard Blier, Bertrand’s father), who reacts with casual apathy. This morbid duo then meets up with a confessed killer (Jean Carmet), and the three of them embark on a series of darkly comic incidents that overthrow any notion of morality or decency.

Bonus Features: Archival interview with director Bertrand Blier | Audio commentary by film critic Nick Pinkerton | Booklet essay by film critic Gavin Smith | Theatrical trailer

DVD SRP: $19.95

Drama-Romance / 109 min / NR / B&W

Director: Roger Vadim
Starring: Jeanne Moreau, Gerard Philipe, Annette Vadim, Adeleine Lambert, Jeanne Valerie

Synopsis: Les Liaisons Dangereuses (1959), starring Jeanne Moreau (Jules and Jim) and Gérard Philipe (La Ronde), is a provocative adaptation of the classic novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. Updated to present-day France by director Roger Vadim (Barbarella), the film follows Valmont (Philipe) and Juliette (Moreau) as they manipulate each other into having extra-marital affairs. Juliette points Valmont towards the 16-year-old Cécile (Jeanne Valérie), since she has eyes on Cécile’s prospective fiancé Court (Nicolas Vogel). Sex becomes sport in this deliciously backstabbing drama which notably features a score by jazz legend Thelonious Monk.

DVD SRP: $29.95

Drama-Comedy / 106 min / NR / Color

Director: Rick Alverson
Starring: Jeff Goldblum, Tye Sheridan, Denis Lavant, Udo Kier, Hannah Gross

Synopsis: The Mountain is a surreal and unsettling tour of 1950s America starring Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One) and Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park). Since his mother’s confinement to an institution, Andy (Sheridan) has lived in the shadow of his stoic father. A family acquaintance, Dr. Wallace Fiennes (Goldblum), employs the introverted young man as a photographer to document an asylum tour advocating for his increasingly controversial lobotomy procedure. As the tour progresses and Andy witnesses the doctor’s career and life unravel, he begins to identify with the institutions’ patients. Arriving at a California mountain town, a growing center of the New Age movement, they encounter an unconventional French healer (Denis Lavant, The Lovers on the Bridge) who requests a lobotomy for his own daughter, Susan (Hannah Gross, Mindhunter). The Mountain is another fiercely original exploration of the American dream from visionary director Rick Alverson (Entertainment, The Comedy).

Blu-ray and DVD Street Date: November 19, 2019
Blu-ray SRP: $29.95
DVD SRP: $19.95

Romance / 119 min / NR / Color

Director: Patrice Chereau
Starring: Mark Rylance, Kerry Fox, Timothy Spall, Marianne Faithfull, Philippe Calvario

Synopsis: In the provocative Intimacy, what starts out as a weekly anonymous tryst between a divorced man (Mark Rylance, Bridge of Spies) and a married woman (Kerry Fox, Shallow Grave) turns into a searing portrait of loneliness and emotional need. With brilliantly fearless performances from Rylance and Fox, Intimacy reveals what is left bare after the clothes come off.

A Faithful Man (Kino Lorber, Blu-ray & DVD)

Blu-ray and DVD Street Date: November 19, 2019
Blu-ray SRP: $34.95
DVD SRP: $29.95

Romance / 75 min / NR / Color

Director: Louis Garrel
Starring: Louis Garrel, Laetitia Casta, Lily-Rose Depp, Joseph Engel

Synopsis: Eight years after she left him for his best friend, journalist Abel (Louis Garrel, The Dreamers) gets back together with his recently widowed old flame Marianne (Laetitia Casta, Arbitrage). It seems to be a beautiful new beginning, but soon the hapless Abel finds himself embroiled in all sorts of drama: the come-ons of a wily jeune femme (Lily-Rose Depp), the machinations of Marianne’s morbid young son (Joseph Engel), and some unsavory questions about what exactly happened to his girlfriend’s first husband. Shifting points of view as nimbly as its players switch partners, the sophomore feature from actor/director Louis Garrel — co-written with the legendary Jean-Claude Carrière (The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie) — is at once a beguiling bedroom farce and a playful inversion of the patriarchal tropes of the French New Wave.

Long Day’s Journey into Night (Kino Lorber, DVD & 3-D Blu-ray)
3-D Blu-ray and DVD Street Date: November 26, 2019
3-D Blu-ray SRP: $34.95
DVD SRP: $29.95

Drama / 140 min / NR / Color

Director: Bi Gan
Starring: Tang Wei, Huang Jue, Sylvia Chang, Lee Hong-chi, Chen Yongzhong

Synopsis: Long Day’s Journey Into Night is a noirish stunner about a lost soul (Huang Jue) on a quest to find a missing woman from his past (Tang Wei, Lust, Caution). Following leads across Guizhou province, the man crosses paths with a series of colorful characters, among them a prickly hairdresser played by Taiwanese superstar Sylvia Chang. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the film launches into an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot that plunges its protagonist-and us-into a dreamlike, labyrinthine cityscape. A monumental accomplishment from director Bi Gan (Kaili Blues), it is China’s biggest arthouse hit of all time, and has already become a modern cinematic landmark.

Bonus Features: Interview with director Bi Gan | Interview with star Huang Jue | Making-of Documentary | Booklet interview with Bi Gan by writer Aaron Stewart-Ahn | Theatrical trailer

Their ambition is to follow plan C: Combs, Clothes and Chasing Men! Big trouble comes to town when Adjoua realizes she’s pregnant.
