England's Postwar Paranoia Creeps in the Shadows of Three Film-Noirs

Kino Lorber has been doing Region 1 a favor by licensing Blu-rays of classic British films from France's StudioCanal, which apparently owns everything in Europe. That's why we've been blessed with a bunch of Ealing Films and a set of early Hitchcocks. Now available are three stray postwar classics made in the four-year period from 1949 to 1953, two of them from London Films and one from Associated British Pictures. All are moody delights indulging noir-ish black and white, keying into the uncert...

HP offers its investors billions in shareholder returns to avoid a Xerox tie-up

To ward off a hostile takeover bid by Xerox, which is a much smaller company, HP (not to be confused with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, a separate public company) is promising its investors billions and billions of dollars.

In a letter to investors, HP called Xerox’s offer a “flawed value exchange” that would lead to an “irresponsible capital structure” that was being sold on “overstated synergies.” Here’s what HP is promising ...

‘Hunters’ Creator David Weil Responds to Auschwitz Memorial’s Criticism of Historical Inaccuracy in the Series

Being in a disagreement with the official Auschwitz Memorial is not an ideal position for anyone, but given the circumstances, Hunters creator and co-showrunner David Weil seems to be doing it about as respectfully and thoughtfully as possible.
