Serpico Blu-ray

Posted August 7, 2013 03:22 AM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment is bringing director Sidney Lumet's Serpico to Blu-ray as part of its 600-title distribution deal with Paramount. The award-winning 1973 crime drama stars Al Pacino, John Randolph, Jack Kehoe, Cornelia Sharpe, Tony Roberts, Allan Rich and Damien Leake, and arrives on Blu-ray on December 3rd.

Official Synopsis: Adapted by Waldo Salt and Norman Wexler from Peter Maas's book, Sidney Lumet's Serpico portrays the real-life struggle of an honest New York City cop who wages war against a corrupt system. Officer Frank Serpico (Pacino) keeps one foot firmly planted in the counterculture, sporting a beard and love beads and living in bohemian Greenwich Village. But when he refuses to take bribes like his fellow officers, he becomes determined to expose the corruption within his department. Serpico's information triggers an independent investigation by the Knapp Commission, but also make him a marked man.

Shot on location with an emphasis on documentary-style realism, Serpico presents a city in literal and moral decay. Released in late 1973, shortly after revelations of Presidential malfeasance in the breaking Watergate scandal, the film's true story of bureaucratic depravity touched a cultural nerve, and the film became a hit among critics and audiences, drawing particular praise for Pacino's complex performance as the honest, long-haired whistle-blower. One year after his star-making triumph in The Godfather, Pacino was nominated for a number of awards (including an Oscar), and won his first Best Actor Golden Globe.

Technical specifications and special features have yet to be detailed.

For whatever reason, I was expecting this one to eventually be a Lionsgate/StudioCanal Collection title. I guess the rights over here are different and belonged to Paramount, much like '3 Days of the Condor'.

Excellent, been waiting for this one. And a digibook would suit me fine as well.

But enough with the Watergate references already..we get it. That was kid's stuff comp[ared to now, but we'll never hear the end of it will we? That shoehorn must be getting worn out by now...

One of the best movies of the 70's and one of my all time favorites. Whover hasn't seen this is emotionally bankrupt.

Glad to see more of the Paramount catalog titles finally getting released. Here's hoping "Death Wish" is announced soon.

Another class release. Does anybody know if there's a list of the 600 Paramount titles that WB has the rights to? I'd love to pore over it so see what possible releases might be on the horizon in the next year or two (Parallax View, American Gigolo, The Two Jakes & Danger Diabolik being of particular interest to me).

Like someone else said, "Death Wish" would be ideal to be released next. As far as Pacino's filmography goes I wish we could get "Cruising" to go with this one to file under "Pacino plays an undercover cop."
