Aisle Seat 6-13: Kino Lorber Wrap, 65 on 4K
Posted By Andy Dursin 6/12/2023 - 10:00 PM
Charles Laughton’s classic NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (93 mins., 1955), an oft-imitated, still invigorating and unique mix of thriller, fairy tale, and small-town American fable makes its debut on 4K UHD this month from Kino Lorber. Criterion previously released a sumptuous Blu-Ray edition of the film back in 2014, but while that release remains relevant for its supplements (not to mention still being the only release in the format), it’s been usurped technically here by a fresh 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative, enhanced further with Dolby Vision HDR.

Aisle Seat 5-30: Unofficial Summer Kickoff Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 5/29/2023 - 10:00 PM
The new documentary AT THE VIDEO STORE (72 mins., 2019; ETR) is a love letter to the human workers who were mostly supplanted by Netflix mail subscriptions and Redbox kiosks shortly after we entered into the DVD era. By the early 2000’s, no longer was it necessary to make an effort to rent and watch a movie – or receive suggestions, however informed they may have been (or not), from people you may have hardly known in response to “what should I watch tonight?” Ease of convenience trumped the human connection – a topic James Westby’s doc ponders as it remembers the past and salutes the small stores still making a go of it around the country.

Aisle Seat 5-23: The May Vintage Edition
Posted By Andy Dursin 5/22/2023 - 10:00 PM
After the success of “The Thief of Bagdad,” producer Walter Wanger and Universal looked to emulate the Technicolor fantasy of Alexander Korda’s classic. What they came up with didn’t quite possess the same enduring artistic attributes as its predecessor, but still managed to become popular box-office hits – especially thanks to the teaming of Jon Hall and Maria Montez. Appearing in no less than six films together, the pair became synonymous with ‘40s/’50s adventure cinema – the kind celebrated in Imprint’s fantastic new TALES OF ADVENTURE COLLECTION Blu-Ray box-set.
