Eureka have announced their June 2020 line up today which will feature a new 4K restoration of a true film noir masterpiece; another trademark satirical and cynical comedy from Billy Wilder; plus a re-issue of The Last Waltz.
Illicit passion, greed, robbery, and murder collide in Criss Cross, a classic film noir suspense tale from a true master of the genre, Robert Siodmak (The Killers). Presented from a new 4K restoration, Criss Cross will be released on 22 June 2020 for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK as part of The Masters of Cinema Series.
Next up, from the inimitable Billy Wilder (Double Indemnity, The Lost Weekend) comes A Foreign Affair. This classic comedy mixes romance with hard-boiled wit in a story about stiff-necked Iowa congresswoman Phoebe Frost (Jean Arthur – Shane) mired in jaded postwar Berlin. Filled with sharp dialogue and satiric jabs, A Foreign Affair is one of Wilder’s most beloved comedies, and The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film in its UK debut on Blu-ray. Available from 22 June 2020.
Perhaps the greatest rock documentary ever made, Martin Scorsese’s The Last Waltz captures what was advertised as legendary rock group The Band’s final farewell concert appearance. Joined on stage by more than a dozen special guests, including Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Muddy Waters and Joni Mitchell, The Last Waltz started as a concert, but it became a celebration. Interspersed with candid discussions between director Scorsese and members of The Band, The Last Waltz has been called “the greatest rock concert movie ever made – and maybe the best rock movie, period”. Re-released on Blu-ray as part of The Masters of Cinema Series on 22 June 2020.
