Appearing in masterworks by the likes of Godard, Antonioni, and Visconti, Alain Delon was among the key actors of European art cinema's golden age. Kino's collection comprises three lesser-known titles from the Frenchman's filmography, which now spans nearly half a century. Borsalino and Co. (1974) stars Delon as a gangster in pre-war Marseilles who winds up in an insane asylum after finding himself on the wrong end of a turf war. Also from Borsalino director Jacques Deray: the true-crime policier Flic Story, featuring Delon as a cop assigned to track down a deranged criminal played by Jean-Louis Trintignant. And from director José Giovanni comes Two Men in Town, an anti-capital-punishment crime drama pairing Delon with screen legend Jean Gabin. All three discs feature a collection of Delon film trailers and a selected filmography.
The inaugural releases from Panik House, a new label specializing in Asian genre cinema, this pair of Thai horror films bears the imprint of the Pang brothers (The Eye): Oxide Pang co-directed Bangkok Haunted, a trilogy of loosely connected ghost stories, and (with brother Danny) produced Omen, a supernatural chiller featuring Thai pop trio D2B.
