  • Conclusion: Considering the hit or miss way MGM has been handling their catalog titles, Kubrick fans should rejoice that the Criterion Collection was able to license 'The Killing' and create such a fantastic release. It's a thrilling crime movie that has benefited from the digital restoration it received.

  • Conclusion: Criterion have put together a very strong package for director Stanley Kubrick's The Killing and Killer's Kiss . The two films look great on Blu-ray, the best they ever have. Clearly, this is an excellent companion piece for Criterion's equally impressive Paths of Glory release.
