The Woman in the Window (1944) Blu Ray (Eureka!)

Fritz Lang's classic film noir thriller is excruciatingly tense and tightly-constructed. The ending is something of a bone of contention but there's still plenty for everyone to enjoy up until that point, be it Lang's stylish direction or the sultry Joan Bennett.

The Reckless Moment (1949) dir: Max Ophüls Blu Ray (Indicator)

Joan Bennett plays a housewife who becomes ensnared in a blackmail plot orchestrated by James Mason's ambiguous antagonist and his mysterious partner in crime. Max Ophüls' last Hollywood film is a gripping and concise film noir classic which is well worthy of rediscovery.
