The cast also features Aisling Bea, Michael Sheen, Helen McCrory and Elliot Levey.

thousand-pieces-of-gold-1990-new-on-dvd-bluray

Product Description: "Set in a mining town in the 1880s, Thousand Pieces of Gold tells the real-life story of Lalu (Rosalind Chao, The Laundromat, The Joy Luck Club), a young Chinese woman whose desperately poor parents sell her into slavery. She is trafficked to a nefarious saloonkeeper in Idaho’s gold country. Eventually Charlie, a man of a different ilk, played by Chris Cooper (Adaptation, American Beauty), wins her in a poker game and slowly gains her trust. Way ahead of its time, the film resonates even more powerfully in the #MeToo era. But director Nancy Kelly became a victim of prejudice against women directors within the American film industry and was never offered another movie to direct in spite of extraordinary reviews, some of which compared her talent to that of John Ford. Based on the classic novel by Ruthanne Lum McCunn, and written for the screen by awardwinning filmmaker Anne Makepeace (Tribal Justice), Thousand Pieces of Gold is a breathtaking feminist Western just waiting to be rediscovered, and is presented here in a new 4K restoration."

an-ideal-place-to-kill-1971-new-on-bluray

Product Description: Two free spirited teenagers, Dick and Ingrid (played by Ray Lovelock and Ornella Muti), set out to spend the summer together in Italy. To pay their way they sell Scandinavian porn mags and pictures of Ingrid posing nude. But then they get busted by the cops and are given 24 hours to get out of the country.

Instead of leaving they take to the road, where they come up against a thieving biker gang and then are mistaken for a pair of bank robbers. Heading south in a hurry, they run out of gas in the middle of nowhere and take refuge in the house of Barbara Slater (Irene Papas), a seemingly bored, middle aged housewife who appears to be up for some sexual shenanigans. The naive pair party with Barbara but soon discover she is hiding a terrible and deadly secret.

Directed by the legendary Umberto Lenzi of CANNIBAL FEROX fame, this sexy thriller in the Italian "giallo" style is a taut and suspense filled entertainment with a deviously twisted plot and all the trappings of the "hippie" 1970s, Euro style.

AN IDEAL PLACE TO KILL is here available for the first time ever on Blu-ray, restored from the original negative, complete and uncut and with exclusive bonus features.

scorsese-shorts-new-on-dvd-and-bluray-criterion-collection

Product Description: This compilation of five early short films by Martin Scorsese offers a fascinating window onto his artistic development. Spanning the years from Scorsese’s time at NYU in the mid-1960s to the late ’70s, when he was emerging as one of the era’s most electrifying talents, Scorsese Shorts centers on the intimate home movie Italianamerican—a loving snapshot of the director’s parents—and American Boy, a freewheeling portrait of a larger-than-life raconteur.

Also included are The Big Shave, a daringly visceral response to America’s involvement in Vietnam, and the bracing student films What’s a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This? and It’s Not Just You, Murray!

Touching on many of Scorsese’s key themes—Italian American identity, family, his beloved New York City—these are hilarious, candid, and illuminating works from the preeminent American filmmaker of our time.
