Product description

Product Description

This effortlessly cool crime caper, directed by Georges Franju (Eyes Without a Face), is a marvel of dexterous plotting and visual invention. Conceived as an homage to Louis Feuillade’s 1916 cult silent serial of the same name, Judex kicks off with the mysterious kidnapping of a corrupt banker by a shadowy crime fighter (American magician Channing Pollock) and spins out into a thrillingly complex web of deceptions. Combining stylish sixties modernism with silent-cinema touches and even a few unexpected sci-fi accents, Judex is a delightful bit of pulp fiction and a testament to the art of illusion.

Special Features

New 2K digital film restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray. Interview from 2007 with the film’s cowriter Jacques Champreux, the grandson of Louis Feuillade, co-creator of the silent serial Judex. Interview from 2012 with actor Francine Bergé Franju le visionnaire, a fifty-minute program from 1998 on director Georges Franju’s career and imagination. New English subtitle translation. Plus: a booklet featuring an essay by film scholar Geoffrey O’Brien, along with reprinted writings by and excerpted interviews with Franju.
