Throughout the rest of the year, I will be doing the best I can to alert readers here to the extraordinary Jean-Jacques Beineix releases Cinema Libre has coming out here in America. The astonishing and epic Director's Cut of Betty Blue is now playing in select cities across the United States, and the first Beineix DVD release from Cinema Libre (Locked in Syndrome) hits stores today. Here is a link to a special website Cinema Libre has set up for the films, and here you can find everything from release dates, to reviews, to rare images.
