The Hit Criterion Collection DVDOne of the latest releases from the Criterion DVD company in the US is the 1984 UK cult movie, The Hit. Legendary British actor Terence Stamp is Willie, a gangster's henchman turned "supergrass" (informer) trying to live in peaceful hiding in a remote Spanish village. Sun-dappled bliss turns to nerve-racking suspense, however, when two hit men - played by a soulless John Hurt and a youthful, loose-cannon Tim Roth come to bring Willie back for execution.

With an instrumental theme co-written by Roger Waters and Eric Clapton, and a score by Clapton, it has long be sought out by Waters fans. Well, search no more, as the (region 1, NTSC format) DVD hits stores in North America yesterday (April 28th), complete with a new, restored high-definition digital transfer, commentary, interview and booklet.

For those who want to order online (and at the same time, help BD site funds), you can get it at saving 27% on the normal retail price, or from saving 33%. Both Amazon stores will ship this disc worldwide.
