By Kilian Melloy | May 19
Fans of Cohen's excellent restoration work and re-releases of vintage movies shouldn't come looking for a modern classic here.

Blu-ray/DVD Review :: Jamaica Inn

By Kilian Melloy | May 18
This 4K-scanned restoration of the film enjoys such clarity and pristine image quality that, aside from a couple of jumps due to missing frames, it looks like perfection itself. You might even forgive the movie's many absurdities.
