Kino Lorber Blu-ray

See this film. Throw it into your Netflix queue, or hell, take a chance and blind-buy this blu-ray release from Kino. Yeah, the lack of supplements is certainly disappointing, especially when noting that Kino have really upped their game on their more recent releases, but the film alone is more than enough to justify adding this to your collection. Though the PQ isn’t quite what one would hope for in 2016, the film that remains, and in the presentation that it does, preserves its ’70s-like environment and sense of despair. The ’70s have often been called the decade of cinematic loneliness, during which many films focused on the loner who has cut him or herself off from society. Man on Fire fits right in there, even if it came out a decade too late.
