Blu-ray Release: Windows

Price: Blu-ray $19.02
Studio: Shout! Factory

The 1980 thriller Windows is the only feature film to be directed by acclaimed cinematographer Gordon Willis (The Purple Rose of Cairo, Comes a Horseman).

The withdrawn and recently divorced Emily (Talia Shire, Rocky) lives a lonely existence. But after enduring a bizarre assault at the hands of a stranger, Emily finds both comfort and friendship in her neighbor Andrea (Elizabeth Ashley, The Carpetbaggers). As Emily contends with the fact that her attacker still stalks the streets, she slowly discovers that there is more to her new acquaintance, Andrea, beyond her helpful façade – something that becomes a window to the dark soul of depraved obsession.

Poorly received upon its release by both critics and audiences, the movie features a score by the legendary Ennio Morricone (Once Upon a Time in America) and, in our minds, still warrants a look-see.
