I’m going to mix things up here a little bit at Moon in the Gutter in February and I hope the month long change proves enjoyable. With just a few exceptions, my favorite posts here since beginning this venture a couple of years back have been the ones focusing on films that have slipped through the cracks for one reason or the other. So throughout the month of February I will be having a Missing in Action on Region 1 DVD blowout. Be on the lookout for posts on a variety of films ranging from art-house classics, rare exploitation films to mainstream American works that for whatever reason have all still failed to secure an American DVD release. Many of the films I will be covering have also failed to secure any sort DVD release so hopefully my worldwide readers will stay interested as well. I will try and stay away from films (like The Magnificent Ambersons) that have been high on most film fans want lists and will instead focus on more forgotten or obscure works, but I will be posting on a few sorely missing titles (like Ken Russell’s The Devils) whose absences have already been greatly lamented.
Also I would like to extend an invite to all of my blogging buddies reading to salute their own favorite missing in action title (or titles) sometime in February as well. Send me the link to your post if you choose to do one and I will create a special side panel here throughout the month to link back to it. Give Moon in the Gutter a shout out as well if you choose to join in.
I hope the month proves enjoyable and I am looking forward to getting it going next week as the new month begins.
