Wise Blood (1979)

(7 of 7 of the 1970s)

From John Huston, one of the great "feel bad" films. Criterion did the DVD.

Review: Wise Blood (1979).

A couple of those movies have made it out on Blu-ray. The newer Lolita recently saw a German release. Tucker: The Man and his Dream would be nice to have on Blu-ray, I wish Criterion would tackle it.

There are at least three known Blu-rays for Open Range, all in Europe. A French BD by Fox Pathe Europa, a Scandinavian BD by Nordisk Film, and a German BD from Universum Film.

I don't think there is much chance Disney would release it in the United States, sadly. They despise their live-action back catalog for home video.
