Epics are the kinds of movies the big screen does best: you don’t want to be watching either of these titles on your phone if you can help it.
Newly available on Blu-ray via Kino Lorber, 1951’s “David and Bathsheba” is an epic of the Biblical variety, starring Gregory Peck as the great King David and Susan Hayward as Bathsheba, the married woman he couldn’t get out of his mind.
Also from Kino Lorber is a film thought lost for decades, the 1933 disaster film “Deluge” whose compelling state of the art special effects convincingly recreate a New York City wiped out by a massive global tidal wave. You’ll be reaching for your life preserver as you’re watching, guaranteed. – Kenneth Turan
