Something always felt a bit out of place for me in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “The King of Comedy”, just released on Blu-ray for the first time. I couldn’t put my finger on it but chalked it up to it being thematically ahead of its time in its investigation of the cult of personality that defines modern entertainment.
HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: 25 Pairs of Chicago Passes to Digitally Restored ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’
CHICAGO – We agree that it’s sometimes exploitative to re-release a hit film from long, long ago so a studio can newly bloat previously fat wallets. But, sometimes, you’re happily exploited, such as with the Music Box Theatre’s re-release of the newly digitally-restored “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. It’s 1981 Indiana Jones, people. Enough said.
