Kino Lorber’s Masquerade Makes A Splash on Blu-ray – Review
Kino Lorber continues to release awesome Blu-rays with some great special features. Masquerade is no exception. Meg Tilly and Rob Lowe star in this thriller set in the world of socialites and sailing boats. Money is not the main concern of most of the characters.
Everyone can relate to love, and a love thriller at that. I for one would always prefer more thrills to more kisses. Masquerade has equal parts of both.
The film was directed by Bob Swaim and also stars Kim Cattrall, Dana Delany, John Glover, Doug Savant. Masquerade was released in theaters in 1988. I personally remember watching this on HBO for the first time shortly after the film’s theatrical run.
It is so funny to think of the way the entire theatrical release process has been thrown for a loop because of the pandemic. In my opinion, there have been problems with the release windows for years. I digress, so let’s get back to Masquerade.
Everything I think of this movie I imagine the smell of the ocean and the feel of the warm wood of the docks on the bottoms of my feet. Rob Lowe is beyond cool in this. Meg Tilly is so beautiful in this role. Her soft spoken nature lend to a very memorable performance. I always like seeing John Glover on-screen and Dana Delaney is great too. The performances are great all around.
Masquerade arrives from Kino Lorber on September, 21.
