Blow Out - The Criterion Collection

£29.99

Released: 22nd July 2024. In the enthralling Blow Out, brilliantly crafted by Brian De Palma, John Travolta gives one of his greatest performances, as a film sound-effects man who believes he has accidentally recorded a political assassination. To uncover the truth, he enlists the help of a possible eyewitness to the crime (Nancy Allen), who may be in danger herself. With its jolting stylistic flourishes, intricate plot, profoundly felt characterizations, and gritty evocation of early-1980s Philadelphia, Blow Out is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on moviemaking.   DIRECTOR-APPROVED 4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES New 4K digital restoration, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in Dolby Vision HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features Interview with director Brian De Palma, conducted by filmmaker Noah Baumbach Interview with actor Nancy Allen Murder à la Mod, a 1967 feature by De Palma Interview with cameraman Garrett Brown on the Steadicam shots featured in the film within Blow Out On-set photographs by Louis Goldman Trailer English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing PLUS: An essay by critic Michael Sragow and Pauline Kael’s original New Yorker review of the film New cover by Eric Skillman
