MONKEY MAN: MAYHEM WITH A PURPOSE?

1957
Actor Dev Patel, who won over audiences around the globe in Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, is flexing his muscles by co-writing, directing, and starring in Monkey Man. By diving into Indian culture, myths, and traditions he attempts to ground his brutal story…

RARE CARTOONS NEW TO BLU-RAY: HOORAY!

2001
