Indicator October 2019 Blu-ray Titles

On 28 October, Indicator presents long-overdue Blu-ray premieres of four powerful and uncompromising films. First, two worldwide Blu-ray premieres: the tense Brit noir Time Without Pity (1957); and the epic Young Winston (1972). Next, two UK premiere editions: Badge 373 (1973), directed by Howard Koch, is based on the life of New York detective Eddie Egan; and award-winning director Alan Parker’s Birdy (1984).

“A gun in his sock, a tire iron in his belt, and no badge. The story of Eddie. The best ex-cop in the business.”
