From the review of the Blu-ray of Le Cercle Rouge at DVDBeaver:
Quote
ADDITION: (August 2010) Studio Canal Collection - Region 'B' -  Blu-ray: Firstly, this is the European region 'B'-locked Blu-ray edition of Melville's film. It will be the exact same disc (transfer, menus, extras) used in the UK (Optimum), Germany (Kinowelt) and in France (Studio Canal) under the umbrella of The Studio Canal Collection. Packaging will differ due to the country language it is sold in September 2010 but all digital features will be the same. Accordingly Lions Gate should release this in North America although I have no scheduled release date yet.



The prize of the extras is Olivier Bohler's 1 1/4 hour documentary Code Name: Melville - described as "...mixing interviews, rare archival footage and film extracts, the film shows how Melville's works were impacted by what he experienced in his youth during WWII, and how it structured his whole approach to cinema, not only in its thematic but also in its aesthetics." we certainly don't want to take away from the 20-minute introduction by film scholar Ginette Vincendeau (love that voice) and, under 'About Le Cercle Rouge' interviews with assistant director Bernard Stora (30:11 - French w/subs), writer, director, actor Jose Giovanni (14:37 - French w/subs) and Rui Nogueira (26:12- French w/subs). There is also a trailer in HD.

Kiss of Death (1995) - 6/10

Don't remember the original but this is 100% mediocre, yet watchable.

David Caruso doesn't have the sunglasses in this one. Cheesy

Bad Cop Noir! I've seen it twice on the big screen and I'd be happy to own it on DVD (if it ever comes out). Van Hefflin makes a wonderfully lovable psycho.
