Savant Column

Saturday November 18, 2017


I’m buried in discs but happy for it — and I tossed in a review from a company that’s not sending out screeners, because it was a fun picture to write about. I think I’m covering the bases fairly well here, especially with the help of Charlie Largent and Lee Broughton.

Release news: Twilight Time just announced their February offerings: Woody Allen’s Manhattan Murder Mystery, Mark Rydell’s Harry and Walter Go To New York, Larry Peerce’s The Incident and Paul Newman’s The Effect of Gamma Rays On Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds. Their November titles are all in house and reviews are on the way.

Meanwhile, Criterion in February will be getting a lot of attention, with new discs of Night of the Living Dead (in George Romero’s ‘preferred’ flat ratio, fudgesicles), Silence of the Lambs (I’ve always wanted to review it), Tony Richardson’s Tom Jones, An Actor’s Revenge, The Hero and Louis Malle’s Elevator to the Gallows.

Thanks for reading! — Glenn Erickson
