Anarchy in the UK

Advantages: Good thriller, decent picture quality
Disadvantages: Poor extras

...The Blu-ray from Network is a mere £10 on amazon at time of writing. Made in 1936, Sabotage was one of the British thrillers that established Alfred Hitchcock as the Master of Suspense, and soon brought Hollywood calling. It’s a slightly odd film compare ...
