Default Rumble Fish (Coppola) : August 27th (UK)



AND in a Steelbook:



Fantastic news for fans of Coppola's highly rated flick with Matt Dillon and Mickey Rourke. MOC should turn out a great transfer for this:

Amazon.co.uk Review
The second of Francis Ford Coppola's films based on the popular juvenile novels of S.E. Hinton (the first being The Outsiders), Rumble Fish split critics into opposite camps: those who admired the film for its heavily stylised indulgence, and those who hated it for the very same reason. Whatever the response, it's clearly the work of a maverick director who isn't afraid to push the limits of his innovative talent. Filmed almost entirely in black and white with an occasional dash of color for symbolic effect, this tale of alienated youth centers on gang leader Rusty James (Matt Dillon) and his band of punk pals. Rusty's got a girlfriend (Diane Lane), an older brother named Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Rourke), and a drunken father (Dennis Hopper) who've all given up trying to straighten him out. He's best at making trouble, and he pursues that skill with an enthusiastic flair that eventually catches up with him. But it's not the whacked-out story here that matters--it's the uninhibited verve of Coppola's visual approach, which includes everything from time-lapse clouds to the kind of smoky streets and alleyways that could only exist in the movies. The supporting cast includes a host of fresh faces who went on to thriving careers, including Nicolas Cage, Christopher Penn, Vincent Spano, Laurence Fishburne, and musician Tom Waits. --Jeff Shannon
Product Description
SYNOPSIS: In this second of Francis Ford Coppola's back-to-back screen adaptations of novels by S. E. Hinton, the grand romanticism of The Outsiders was flipped to create an expressionist, monochrome vision of youthful passion and melancholy, and became one of Coppola's most personal and dazzling works.

Against a run-down, industrial Tulsa, Oklahoma, Coppola presents a vivid portrait of troubled teenage gang leader Rusty James (Matt Dillon) as he struggles with cohorts, rival gangs, his frustrated girlfriend Patty (Diane Lane), his estranged father (Dennis Hopper), and the return of his idolised older brother The Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Rourke).

An audacious depiction of gang violence, dead-end lives, and the ties that bind, Rumble Fish remains a cult favourite and features magnificent cinematography by Stephen H. Burum, a Golden Globe-winning score by Stewart Copeland, and a remarkable cast that also includes Nicolas Cage, Chris Penn, Tom Waits, and Laurence Fishburne. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the world-première release of Rumble Fish on Blu-ray & Blu-ray SteelBook.

Holy crap. Eureka does it again! => Instant order.

On a side note – kind of curious though that ‘‘Rumble Fish’’ gets afforded a 5.1 audio mix whereas ‘‘Repo Man’’ gets a mono track. (the only negative comment I have for an otherwise stellar release and transfer)

Yeah I have ordered both this and Dr Mabuse, simply can't wait for these releases.... Excellent news after the overall disappointing news from Arrow re new releases on Friday.

The lack of 5.1 was a disappointment on Repo Man but remains anything but a deal killer though.

The 5.1 mix for Repo Man was poot and not approved by Cox. And who cares, original mono is the way to go anyway.

Dvdbeaver gives this top marks:

The scintillating black and white cinematography of Rumble Fish looks absolutely fabulous on Blu-ray from The Masters of Cinema arm of Eureka Entertainment in the UK. The 1080P image quality is showcased by brilliant contrast exporting crisp detail and frequent depth. What becomes apparent is how effectively this benefits establishing the film's important aura and moods. Wow. This Blu-ray is wonderfully consistent and clean with only one or two minor speckles noticeable in the entire pristine presentation. This dual-layered transfer is a beauty and gets top marks.
