Default The Border (1982) and Blue Collar(1978)

There have been two very low key, under-the-radar releases recently of two Harvey Keitel films on blu ray in Germany...

"Blue Collar" (1978) is a great Paul Schrader film starring Richard Pryor, Harvey Keitel, and Yaphet Kotto that came out some months back on blu in Germany. I imported it, and it is Region B (I have Region Free players), and it looks and sounds pretty darngood on this BD.

More surprising to me is the unheard-about release just in the past week of Tony Richardson's "The Border" (1982), starring Jack Nicholson, Harvey Keitel, Warren Oates, and Valerie Perrine. It too is Region B, and i will likely import it.

"Silver Bullet" and "The Evil That Men Do" (Bronson) are also coming soon to blu.

More and more Germany these days is getting many great older catalog US titles out to BD before the US does....

I imported Blue Collar. Considered The Border, but the comparisons she very little improvement over the DVD. I'm sure it's better from the sole fact of not being an DVD upscale and all, but I wish it looked a little better.

Very tempted by Blue Collar and will get it if a local release doesn't materialise soon.

Good double-bill of down and dirty, working class slice o'life, American cinema, right there. Blue Collar is particularly is great. Easily the best film Pryor ever made.
