An American Hippie In Israel Hitting Blu-ray This SeptemberGrindhouse Releasing’s Blu-ray of this latest sliver of Seventies lunacy, An American Hippie in Israel, has been dated; and if we were you, we’d get to pre-ordering it immediately, if only because of how friggin’ strange it is.

From the Press Release
Grindhouse Releasing has set a September 10 street date for its deluxe Blu-ray/DVD release of Amos Sefer’s far-out cult classic AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL. The limited edition 3-disc set is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

We are very proud and excited to present AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL for the first time to U.S. audiences,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski. “It’s an amazing film, and we’ve spent years making this Blu-ray the ultimate edition of a cult classic. From the film restoration to the massive wealth of bonus features we gathered from around the globe, AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL may be our best release to date!”

Originally filmed in 1972, AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL stars Asher Tzarfati as a dope-smoking Vietnam vet wandering through an insane desert landscape of “machine-gun wielding mimes, robots, bloodthirsty sharks, free-loving debauchery and poignant anti-war monologues.”

Lost for many years, AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL has become a midnight movie sensation in Tel Aviv, where it has been screening to packed crowds. Grindhouse Releasing plans to celebrate the Blu-ray/DVD release with a series of U.S. theatrical screenings planned for the fall.

The Blu-ray/DVD set is limited to 2,000 individually numbered copies.

    Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

    Published

    on

    One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

    Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

    Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

    Synopsis:
    Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
