A Review By: Kevin Lovell

Disc Rating: 6.5/10

Synopsis:

THE SHEIK opened at the height of a nation’s appetite for motion pictures and sealed Rudolph Valentino’s status as a heart-throb Hollywood legend. While his untimely death would break the hearts of his adoring fans, the movie broke box-office records for Paramount Pictures in 1921. One hundred years later, this essential Romance of a charming Arabian sheik’s infatuation with an Englishwoman endures. This limited-edition Blu-ray includes a new look at the classic with Professor Leslie Midkiff DeBauche, and an original music score composed by Roger Bellon.

Release Date: August 10, 2021

A Review By: Kevin Lovell

Disc Rating: 7/10

Synopsis:

Following 24 unique characters through 5 days in the country music capital, Robert Altman’s Oscar winning epic presents a complexly textured portrayal (and critique) of America’s obsession with celebrity and power. Among the various stars, aspirants, hangers-on, observers, and media folk are politically ambitious country icon and his fragile star protégée, a self-absorbed rock star who woos a lonely married gospel singer, a talentless waitress painfully humiliated at her first singing gig, a runaway wife with dreams of stardom, and a campaign guru who is trying to organize a concert rally for an unseen presidential candidate. An essential of 70s cinema, this newly remastered Blu-ray, from a 4K film scan of the original elements, looks better than ever.
