Film Noir Releases in June 2015

Film noir Blu-ray releases this month are practically non-existent, with only a couple of films that could be considered neo-noir or neo-noirish. But thanks to Warner Archive, we’re getting some pretty nifty DVD releases. If you know of any June releases I’ve missed, please let me know.

The Onion Field (1979) Harold Becker Kino Lorber

Although not technically a film noir, I remember The Onion Field more as a psychological police procedural. (Of course that’s a memory from when I first saw the film over 35 years ago!)
