    The New York Ripper

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Gorgeous is not a word one would associate with a film as brutal and infamous as The New York Ripper, but here we are. For all the squalor, vice and viscera that the movie displays, somehow the new Blue Underground 4K reissue of the film is also awash in deeper colors, sharper resolution and more clarity. I wondered, “How can a low budget Italian grindhouse movie from 1982 be improved any further than the last release of this film?” Turns…

    Who Saw Her Die?

    ★★★½

    If you see one movie where a father has sex instead of watching his daughter and spends the rest of the movie hunting her killing through the canals of Venice, you should probably watch Don’t Look Now. In fact, you may not even realize there’s another movie with the same plot. Actually, there is and to be honest, it’s really good. And believe it or not, this movie came out a year before Roeg’s.
