Ridley Scott’s (AlienPrometheus) extraordinary visual artistry is let loose in New York City (including Queens and the Guggenheim Museum) in the stylish 1987 thriller romance Someone To Watch Over Me.

Newly appointed detective Mike Keegan (Tom Berenger, The Big Chill), a copy out of Queens, finds his life turned upside-down when he’s assigned to protect Claire Gregory (Mimi Rogers, Hope Springs), the beautiful eyewitness to a brutal murder. Lured into danger and the dizzying heights of Gregory’s glamorous Manhattan lifestyle, Keegan struggles to walk the line between protection and obsession — while trying to stay one step ahead of the psychotic killer (Andreas Katsulas, The Fugitive).

The Blu-ray incarnation of tee handsome-looking film—which contains a silky-smooth cover the the title standard by Sting and a career-launching performance by Lorraine Bracco (Goodfellas) as Berenger’s put-upon wife—features new interviews with writer Howard Franklin and Director of Photography Steven Poster.
