The Sadist & Speak Easily in January
Powis Square Pictures have announced the UK DVD release of two titles on 12th January 2009. The inaugural releases from this new label are The Sadist from writer/director James Landis and Speak Easily, a talkie starring Buster Keaton.
The Sadist is presented in widescreen from a digitally re-mastered print, struck from Joe (‘Gremlins’) Dante’s personal 35mm copy. The sample disc we received is non-anamorphic 2.35:1, though it’s not clear if this is final. Audio is English 2.0, there are no subtitles. DVD extras include a feature length commentary by Vilmos Zsigmond who discusses the filming of The Sadist and also his career as a cinematographer for films including McCabe and Mrs. Miller and Close Encounters of The Third Kind.
Speak Easily is presented in full screen with English 2.0 audio. There are no subtitles or extras.
