Nick Mason soundtracked White of the Eye on DVD/Blu-ray Print E-mail

White of the Eye DVD/Blu-rayComing on March 24th, 2014, is White of the Eye, on Dual Format DVD & Blu-ray. Described by the distinguished critic David Thomson as "one of the great secret works in cinema", White of the Eye is one of the most bizarre and unforgettable thrillers ever made.

Of principal interest to Pink Floyd fans is the soundtrack of this film from 1987, which was created by Nick Mason and Rick Fenn. This duo, of course, also recorded the album Profiles, which came out in 1985. Officially, the soundtrack consists of 26 pieces of music, and the film itself has long been unavailable. This new release will prove popular as it has become a cult classic.

The story is as follows. A serial killer is on the loose in and around the small community of Globe, Arizona, and housewife Joan White (Cathy Moriarty) gradually comes to suspect that her opera-loving hi-fi engineer husband Paul (David Keith) might know more than he's letting on...

So far so familiar, but in the hands of British visionary Donald Cammell (who wrote and co-directed Performance with Nicolas Roeg), the film becomes a dazzling kaleidoscope of images and ideas, spanning everything from Apache folklore, desert landscapes and stylish murder set-pieces that recall Dario Argento to a painfully vivid dissection of the emotional fissures undermining a modern marriage. It's all set to an equally eclectic score co-written by Mason and Fenn.

The 18 certificate release comes on 2 discs. The DVD is PAL encoded, but the Blu-ray of course isn't encoded to NTSC or PAL. It might be region locked though, and at this stage we cannot say for any certainty whether it will or not. Our thanks to Kees Nijpels for his help with this information. At present, the DVD/Blu-ray set can be pre-ordered through this direct link at Amazon UK.
