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.

Here is the “Leverage” plot description:
Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton stars in “Leverage,” which is a fun and fast-paced caper drama from the producer of “Independence Day”.
Hutton plays Nate Ford: a former insurance investigator leading a team of criminals who – after the score of a lifetime – decide to use their skills to help society’s underdogs.
This renegade team of modern-day Robin Hoods operates outside the law to take revenge against those who use power and wealth to victimize others.
Separately, they’re criminals with reputations for working alone. Together, they’re the perfect team to combat the corrupt and level the playing field for the little guy.
