Ishtar (Limited Edition) Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Once the byword for expensive Hollywood failure, Ishtar is slowly and rightfully becoming recognised as one of the unsung greats of eighties' American cinema. In a nod to Bob Hope and Bing Crosby Road to movies, Warren Beatty (Mickey One) and Dustin Hoffman (Straw Dogs) star as brilliantly awful songwriters who find themselves mixed up in Cold War shenanigans whilst in Morocco. Another comedy gem from Elaine May's sadly small, but utterly perfect directorial career.
