Alan Rudolph was one of the prime art house directors from the ’70s to the 90s. One of his finest moments came with The Moderns. The drama was set in the time of Hemingway and Fitzgerald roaming Europe. In this case, we’re with an artist who is twisted by love and desire in Paris. If you didn’t catch it at your local theater that sold Toblerone, you’d eventually rent the VHS at your sophisticated Mom and Pop videostore. Now the movie is getting the Shout Select treatment to bring out the details in the frame on September 19. Here’s the details from Shout! Factory:

Paris, 1926. A time when anything could happen … and usually did. At the center of this world is Nick Hart (Keith Carradine, Nashville), a struggling painter who makes a meager living drawing caricatures at his favorite café. Nick longs for success and even agrees to forge masterpieces for a wealthy divorcée (Geraldine Chaplin, Doctor Zhivago). But what he truly desires is Rachel (Linda Fiorentino, The Last Seduction), the alluring wife of an obsessively jealous and lethally dangerous businessman (John Lone, The Last Emperor).
Also starring Geneviève Bujold (Anne Of The Thousand Days) and Wallace Shawn (My Dinner With Andre), The Moderns is a stylish and witty exploration of the manners and mores within a lost generation.
