via MVD Entertainment Group
As the summer months wind down, Arrow continues to sizzle!
As the days grow shorter and summer slowly fades into fall, Arrow continues to bring the heat with four new releases that are must-own titles for any cinephile.
On September 8, Arrow is proud to release two cinematic masterpieces – one each from bonafide legends in Kinji Fukasaku and Takashi Miike – packaged in one lovely box, with Graveyards of Honor. This double feature includes Fukasaku’s 1975 original film, Graveyard of Honor, and Miike’s 2002 remake. Both films are based on the life of real-like Yakuza member Rikio Ishikawa. In 1999, the 1975 original was voted as the 38th best Japanese film of all-time by Kinemo Junpo. Both films are presented in high-definition with an assorted of new and archival bonus features.
Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway hits Blu-ray on September 15. This second feature from director Miguel Lansowas praised by Variety as “an inspired mashup of vintage exploitation tropes and pure absurdism.” This wild, “futuristic” trip is part Philip K. Dick, part David Lynch, and a whole lot of weird. This release also includes Lanso’s debut feature, Crumbs.
The month’s final release is ivansxtc which comes out on Blu-ray on the 29th. This update on Leo Tolstoy’s “The Death of Ivan Ilyich,” stars Danny Huston and moves to the story to contemporary Hollywood. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September of 2000 to favorable reviews and eventually would earn four Independent Spirit Award nominations. Roger Ebert gave the film a 4-star review, calling it “remarkable.” This new release includes two versions of the theatrical cut, an extended producer’s cut, and a brand-new documentary on the making of the film.

Graveyards Of Honor

Two peerless masters of Japanese cinema – Kinji Fukasaku (Battles without Honor and Humanity, Battle Royale) and Takashi Miike (Dead or Alive, Audition) – present their own distinctive adaptations of yakuza expert Goro Fujita’s gangster novel Graveyard of Honor, each tapping into the zeitgeist of a distinct period of Japanese history.

Jesus Shows You The Way To The Highway

Dick and 60s exploitation cinema, along with a hefty dose of Lynchian surrealism’ The answer: Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway, the second feature by Miguel Llansó (Crumbs) and one of the most striking and original films you’ll see all year.
