Oscilloscope goes ‘Home’

Nicholas Ray's last film to be re-released

Gotham distributor Oscilloscope Laboratories has picked up North American rights to “We Can’t Go Home Again,” the 1972 Nicholas Ray film soon to be seen in a retrospective showcase screening as part of the New York Film Festival.

To go along with the primary release, Oscilloscope also will release “Don’t Expect Too Much,” a new doc about the late Ray helmed by his wife, Susan.

The experimental “We Can’t Go Home Again,” the last film from “Rebel Without a Cause” helmer Ray, was begun in the early 1970s in collaboration with his students at the State U. of New York Binghamton. The semi-fictionalized docu initially screened as a work in progress at Cannes in 1973, and the filmmaker continued to work on it until he died in 1979. Newly restored and reconstructed version will bow in Venice prior to its stint at NYFF.

Oscilloscope plans to screen the pic at fests, in rep houses, at universities and in special engagements around the country prior to a DVD and digital release next year.

Both “We Can’t Go Home Again” and “Don’t Expect Too Much” also will air on TCM in October.
