April 2018 – Two Classics With A Twist

Dear Arthouse Cinema Fans,

The old saying, better late than never, is certainly the case here as we wanted to include some exciting new developments in our April e-newsletter before delivering it to your inbox.   This month, we have made available on Amazon two classics with a twist – Metropolis and The Phantom of the Opera with our popular Loy Cook music score!  Years ago, Corinth commissioned a talented musician named Loy Cook Jr. to compose a new score for these old films so that viewers could enjoy them all over again, and now we have brought them to Amazon Video and Prime!
We also have a very special project in the works, a remastering of Audie Murphy’s last film A Time For Dying, which is owned by Corinth.  After having this film transferred to digital, an extensive amount of cleanup and editing work is necessary to make the quality as sharp as possible.  Stay tuned for more details on availability in subsequent newsletters.  We also have some new DVD releases coming soon that are available for pre-order on Amazon – see below for more details!
Follow us on our social media platforms, and spread the word about our monthly newsletter list which can be signed up for on our website, www.corinthfilms.com.

(2016 | Greece | Drama)

Athens 2016. The complexities of immigration are exposed when four lives collide within the backdrop of Amerika Square. Two Greek friends, along with a Syrian ex-Military doctor, an African singer and a human trafficker each navigate the refugee crisis in Athens.

Host Peter Ustinov utilizes his wit and charm to narrate for the viewer how the US command and control system functions in both training and in the event of an actual retaliatory nuclear strike, and the chilling means by which airpower, nuclear submarines and underground ICBM launch pads are employed to ensure absolute vengeance on the aggressor. Throughout the film, Ustinov colorfully illustrates several scenarious of what might happen if the missiles are unleashed and so commences ‘the war that must never happen.’

March 2018 Newsletter - New Movies

March 2018 Newsletter – New Movies Available for Home Entertainment

Dear Arthouse Cinema Fans,

We’d like to take this opportunity to recognize a Hollywood actor and an actress, both of whom star in movies that Corinth distributes, that have been making some incredible progress in their careers. Heather Graham and Daniel Bruhl have both recently been getting some much deserved attention for recent projects on which they have worked. Graham has turned her acting talents to writing & directing with her debut “Half Magic”, which is based on instances of sexism and mysogyny she has encountered in her acting career, and has recently been featured in a New York Times Style article. The Spanish-German Bruhl’s career has now taken him to the forefront of television, starring as a cutting edge psychologist in TNT’s “The Alienist”. Among their earlier works, Corinth carries Miss Conception from 2008, Lila Lila from 2009 and Days to Come from 2010, all available on Amazon Prime.
Corinth is also proud to bring back The Magic Show, the filmed version of the popular broadway play with Doug Henning, Didi Conn, and Anita Morris!
We hope you enjoy these films as much as we did, and we look forward to hearing about how you enjoy the new releases we are bringing you this month.

NUCLEAR NIGHTMARES

The late Peter Ustinov hosts this haunting 1980 documentary exploring the world’s nuclear weaponry and the fragile system that deters either side from initiating the first nuclear strike.

W. Pittman and Kelly Daniela Norris bring to this story.” Variety’s Dennis Harvey notes “There’s an air of authenticity as well as a pleasingly laid-back yet substantive narrative engagement to this polished effort.View entire review here.
