THE SCREENING ROOM

DVD: “Judas Kiss,” Bruce LaBruce Gets The Doc Treatment, And More!

Heaven’s Gate
($49.95 Blu-Ray, Criterion Collection)

At the time of its 1980 release, this Western epic by Deerhunter director Michael Cimino was considered one of the worst Hollywood films ever made. (This was decades before Battleship.) Now, 32 years later, Cimino’s 216-minute director’s cut is being hailed as a visionary masterwork, and has been stunningly restored and remastered in state-of-the-art high-def picture and DTS sound. Extras include new interviews, trailers, and an essay by critic Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan. Vindication at last!
