(Fritz Lang, 1944)
Release date: 27 August 2018 (OOP date: 6 September 2020)
Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)
Set during Blitz-torn wartime England, Ray Milland (Dial M for Murder, The Lost Weekend) stars as a man just released from a sanatorium who stumbles into an elaborate and murderous Nazi plot. Reminiscent of Lang's early expressionist films (The Spiders, Dr Mabuse the Gambler, M) and full of bravura set pieces and hallucinatory visuals, Ministry of Fear is one of Lang’s finest films – a mature and beautifully crafted thriller, and a vivid adaptation of Graham Greene’s celebrated novel.
