The 1990 comedic crime drama Miami Blues will be released on Blu-ray Disc July 12 as part of the MVD Rewind Collection.
In the MGM neo-noir film, Junior Frenger (Alec Baldwin, The Departed, “30 Rock”) is trouble and Sgt. Hoke Moseley (Fred Ward, Tremors, Short Cuts) knows it. The smooth-talking, good-looking ex-con tiptoes on the borderline of psychotic behavior. The detective is hot on his trail after Junior kills a Hare Krishna, robs a pickpocket, then steals Moseley’s badge, his gun — and even his false teeth. Junior’s running around the streets of Miami posing as a cop, assaulting people and making arrests. And even though he promises his live-in lover (an ex-prostitute played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, The Hateful Eight) that he’ll stay out of crime, he continues playing cops and robbers on both sides of the law.
Written and directed by George Armitage (Grosse Pointe Blank, The Big Bounce, The Last of the Finest), the film was produced by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, Something Wild).
The feature is presented in HD with a master provided by MGM.
Special features include interviews with Alec Baldwin and Jennifer Jason Leigh; the original theatrical trailer; three TV spots; the original Orion Home Video trailer; a photo gallery; a mini-poster; reversible artwork; and a limited edition slipcover for the first pressing only.
