WITNESS Blu-Ray from Arrow

Super proud to be a part of this upcoming release from Arrow. Peter Weir's WITNESS (1985) is one of the great crime thrillers and character studies of the 80s, as well as a superlative "fish out of water" story, and one of Harrison Ford's best performances. It was the film which emphatically proved there was more to Ford as an actor and screen character than just Han Solo and Indiana Jones. I wrote an essay on the film for the 60-page perfect bound book that comes as part of the set, which is due for release in October (local Aus peeps can pre-order through Cinemaniacs). Great to also be amongst such other great talent as Staci Layne WilsonDennis CapicikJarret GahanAmanda Reyes and others, who appear elsewhere on the wide range of supplementary features that were assembles and produced for this release by Lee Gambin
