The Passenger (1975) dir: Michelangelo Antonioni Blu Ray (Indicator)

A journalist (played by Jack Nicholson) takes on a new identity as an arms dealer in this enigmatic and spiritual reconfiguration of the adventure movie. It's an absolute must for any serious film fan and its Blu Ray presentation here does it true justice.

Something Wild (1986) Blu Ray (The Criterion Collection)

Jonathan Demme's sensual, freewheeling genre blend is a hugely enjoyable paean to the eternal appeal of the bad girl or boy. It features memorable, Golden Globe-nominated performances by Jeff Daniels, Melanie Griffith and Ray Liotta as well as some truly unexpected use of music.
