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.
True Detective: The Complete First Season (Steelbook)
These Blu-rays have been released before, but this time the HBO show is getting the steelbook treatment.
The next five films are DVD-only releases coming from Warner Archive:
The Clay Pigeon (1949) Richard Fleischer
Two O’Clock Courage (1945) Anthony Mann
Johnny Angel (1945) Edwin L. Marin
Criminal Court (1946) Robert Wise
Riff-Raff (1947) Ted Tetlzlaff
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!)
