The Outrage VHS
This underrated 1964 film directed by Martin Ritt (Sounder, Norma Rae) features Paul Newman in a story influenced by the classic multiple-perspective film Rashomon, with an American spin. Newman (The Hustler, Hud) plays a Mexican bandit in the Old West accused of raping a frontier woman (Claire Bloom), but conflicting stories from the bandit, the woman, her husband, and others soon complicate matters and make finding the truth elusive. Newman has fun with his daring, over-the-top portrayal, and Ritt's socially conscious streak is in evidence here as he investigates whether the truth is left up to whoever defines it. The Outrage is a chance both to see a terrific cast of classic actors and yet another prime example of the influence of great international films. --Robert Lane

The most recent edition of 'Rashomon' has a commentary that takes us through each step of the story, purpose of camera angles, effects, etc. Also, interviews with the cameraman, set director and others in the making of it. I have watched 'Rashomon' and 'Outrage' several times. Each time I see something new. I recommend others do the same. I absolutely love this film and will place it with my other favorites of all time, such as Casablanca, Rashomon, Seven Samurai, and the 'original' Around The World In 80 Days by Michael Todd.
Some films that were neglected like Orson Wells' "Touch of Evil", is now considered one of his best (Charlton Heston is a Mexican in this one). I hope you enjoy this film as much as I do and that someday "Outrage" will have a commentary and interview with William Shatner in the making and give this film the credit and recognition it deserves. Thanks for reading this.- RP
