DVD/Blu-ray News #1: The Last Embrace (1979).

Last Embrace OS

The Last Embrace (1979) is one of those movies you mention to people — “a Hitchcock kinda thing directed by Jonathan Demme where Roy Scheider’s a government agent who’s really paranoid about someone being after him and it ends at Niagara Falls” — and they look at you like you’re nuts. Nobody’s ever heard of this thing.

Hopefully, now that Kino Lorber has announced its October Blu-ray and DVD release, that’ll change. It’s another obscure Roy Scheider film that really deserves to be seen.
