A Dandy in Aspic (1968) dir: Anthony Mann Blu Ray (Indicator)

Director Mann's swansong was completed by star Laurence Harvey when the former passed away before the end of filming. It is overly convoluted but maintains a strange atmosphere of paranoia. Also starring Tom Courtenay, Mia Farrow, Harry Andrews and Peter Cook.

Ministry of Fear (1944) dir: Fritz Lang Blu Ray (Indicator)

This film noir spy mystery, set in WWII era Britain, is an underrated entry in Fritz Lang's filmography. Expect a lot of art deco production design, chiaroscuro lighting, inventive setpieces and an engaging everyman performance courtesy of Ray Milland.
