❉ Emerging onto Blu Ray for the very first time David Weisman and John Palmer’s Ciao! Manhattan is an odd, fragmentary, fitfully impressive patchwork quilt of a movie.
❉ Nick Clement presents his assessments of cinematic gems and cult oddities. This week, Jack Nicholson and Harvey Keitel in ‘The Border’.
❉ These two films tell us everything we need to know about Scorsese then and now.
❉ This week: Robert Altman’s cynical, ultra-revisionist Western oddity.
❉ BFI to release on DVD Who’s That Knocking at My Door (1967) and Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1974) on 27 March.
