White of the Eye (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
In a wealthy and isolated desert community, a sound expert is targeted as the prime suspect of a series... (110 mins.)
Director: Donald Cammell
“ Available on DVD only in Denmark! Set and filmed in sunny Arizona, this bizarre and flawed but totally fascinating take on the serial killer genre, would make a good second bill for a double feature with Michael Mann’s Manhunter (1986) ” - vert2712
 
2.
Last Embrace (1979)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
Harry breaks down and loses his job after his wife is assassinated - could it be his turn next ? (102 mins.)
Director: Jonathan Demme
“ One of the best Hitchcock homages from the seventies, with Roy Scheider in a role similar to his 'Doc' character from Marathon Man (1976) and Janet Margolin in the best role of her too-brief career. Available on DVD only in a few European countries. ” - vert2712
 
3.
Une journée bien remplie ou Neuf meurtres insolites dans une même journée par un seul homme dont ce n'est pas le métier (1973)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A father plan to kill in the same day the 9 members of the jury who had condemned his son to the death sentence. (95 mins.)
“ One of only two features directed by French actor Jean-Louis Trintignant. An unjustly overlooked black comedy with very little dialogue, available on DVD only in Italy and France (though the latter is out of print) but no version that I know of has english subtitles. ” - vert2712
 
4.
Rampage (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
Liberal district attorney decides to seek the death penalty for a man who slaughtered a family at Christmastime... (97 mins.)
“ After sitting on a shelf for 5 years, this film was finally released theatrically in 1992 in a recut version and promptly flopped. Available on DVD only in Poland (!) and only in the 1992 recut version. The original 1987 cut, released in Europe and Japan, is by far the best but chances that it will ever be released on DVD are almost zero, since Friedkin prefers the newer version. What a pity. ” - vert2712
 
5.
The Tamarind Seed (1974)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
During a Caribbean holiday, a British civil servant finds herself falling in love with a Russian agent. (119 mins.)
Director: Blake Edwards
“ Available on DVD in the UK but not in the USA. One of a number of very solid non-comedies that Blake Edwards directed in the 70s and that for some reasons are almost forgotten nowadays. ” - vert2712
 
6.
Order of Death (1983)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
A pair of corrupt cops spend their illegal cash on an uptown New York City flat. (117 mins.)
Director: Roberto Faenza
“ This is actually out on DVD in the US, but only in awful, mangled versions that look worse than a bad VHS tape. Maybe someday there will be a good widescreen release of this italian-made, New York-set English-language thriller featuring the first, and so far only, substantial lead role performance by John Lydon (of PIL and Sex Pistols fame) ” - vert2712
 
7.
Twilight's Last Gleaming (1977)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A renegade USAF general, Lawrence Dell, escapes from a military prison and takes over an ICBM silo near... (146 mins.)
Director: Robert Aldrich
“ How is it possible that a great movie directed by Robert Aldritch and starring Burt Lancaster and Charles Durning is not available on DVD anywhere in the world? There must be some right/legal issues holding up release. ” - vert2712
 
8.
Night of the Running Man (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
A Las Vegas cab driver finds a million dollars of stolen money in his cab after his fare is murdered... (93 mins.)
Director: Mark L. Lester
“ Made as a feature, this premiered on cable in the US. It's only available on DVD, as far as I can tell, in Australia. It's a lean and mean b-movie variation on the 'normal guy finds a suitcase full of cash and is pursued by relentless hitman' formula perfected by the Coen Brothers in No Country for Old Men (2007). As in that film, the main reason to see the film is the performance by the actor in the bad guy role, in this case Scott Glenn, who is charming and creepy and totally believable as a mafia enforcer. ” - vert2712
 
9.
Police Python 357 (1976)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
An inspector is having a secret relationship with a woman. When she is murdered by his boss, all proof is against him. (125 mins.)
Director: Alain Corneau
“ Only released on DVD in France, this is a good example of the 'polar' cop/action genre, popular in France in the 70s and usually starring Alain Delon or Jean Paul Belmondo. This one has Yves Montand as a Dirty Harry-style cop with a big gun who is being framed for the murder of his lover. Think Dirty Harry (1971) crossed with The Big Clock (1948) and Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970), but set in Orleans. ” - vert2712
 
10.
Figures in a Landscape (1970)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
Two escapees (Robert Shaw and Malcolm McDowell) are on the run in an unspecified but seemingly Latin-American country... (110 mins.)
Director: Joseph Losey
“ This could be pitched as "Franz Kafka's The Defiant Ones". Again, it boggles the mind that a film directed by Joseph Losey and starring Robert Shaw and Malcolm McDowell is available on DVD on in the Netherlands. ” - vert2712
