For the record, let me say that Dee Rees'
extraordinary film Pariah
never got a fair shot from Focus Features
. The film never broke open outside just a few cities and theaters, and, as a result A LOT
of people who are constantly asking for intelligent and sensitive black films free of stereotypes and the oke doke,
and who would have loved it, never got a chance to see it.
Well, the good news is that they soon will have their chance now that Universal Home Video has annoncued that the film will be coming to DVD, both standard and blu-ray, on April 24th.
What extra features wil be on the DVD (and there are sure to be plenty of them) have not been announced as yet, but no doubt we will report about them closer to the DVD release date.
