Indicator January 2021 releases
On 18 January, INDICATOR sees in the new year with a host of internationally acclaimed actors – including Charles Bronson, Wes Studi, Willem Defoe, and Susan Sarandon – and award-winning filmmakers – including John Sturges, Walter Hill, and Paul Schrader.
First, we present the UK Blu-ray premieres of two early seventies Charles Bronson actioners: THE VALACHI PAPERS, based on the disclosures of real-life mobster Joe Valachi and directed by Terence Young, features thrilling action, and impressive ensemble performances from Lino Ventura (The Medusa Touch), Joseph Wiseman (The Garment Jungle) and Jill Ireland (Breakout); and THE VALDEZ HORSES, which reunites Bronson with director John Sturges (The Magnificent Seven) and co-star Jill Ireland in a moody western that contrasts fist fights and shoot-outs with considered characterisation and an unexpectedly melancholy tone.
Staying on the plains of the wild west, we next present the UK Blu-ray premiere of GERONIMO: AN AMERICAN LEGEND, Walter Hill’s epic about the Apache warrior who refused to accept the destruction of his land and people. Wes Studi (The Last of the Mohicans) gives a dignified central performance, and is ably supported by Gene Hackman (Cisco Pike), Jason Patric (The Lost Boys), Robert Duvall (Badge 373), and Matt Damon.
Concluding the round-up of January’s new releases, we present the UK Blu-ray premiere of LIGHT SLEEPER, a neo-noir which sees writer/director Paul Schrader (Hardcore, Blue Collar) revisit rainswept New York to tell the story of a drug dealer (Willem Dafoe) whose life is thrown into disarray when he encounters an old flame (Susan Sarandon) and becomes involved in a police investigation surrounding a mysterious drug death.
Mastered from the finest available materials, each of these essential releases contains expertly encoded presentations, a range of new and archival extra features, English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and booklets with new essays, historical articles, contemporary reviews and film credits.
