  • Ann Hui's The Secret (1979)

    This is definitely a movie worth seeing. I ordered it from Buyoyo ($20) and the only reason I bought it was that it was part of the Hong Kong Film Archive series which had also put out King Hu's The Valiant Ones. It's a blu-ray but in terms of quality falls on the lower end of the spectrum, with burnt-in English and Chinese subtitles and sound derived from a VHS tape. The only extra is a featurette documenting the laborious restoration needed to get it that far. Although it's a rather quiet murder story, there is some surprising gore. The package includes a booklet in English and Chinese which gives some helpful background.
