ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I've made a decision to limit my Blu-ray reviewing to titles I actually enjoyed or that we have extensive email encouragement to cover/compare. I have a stack of notes made on DVDs I've watched in the past year or so but not yet formally reviewed - so we'll be working on that as well. I hate to sound like a broken record with Criterion endorsement but if i was choosing one title this week to recommend it would be Troell's Everlasting Moments - it has really stayed with me. My feeling are generally positive but I can't guess at the longevity of stuff like Unthinkable or Sebastian Silva's quirky The Maid. I like Edward Norton and enjoyed The Illusionist and may be an even bigger fan than Leonard of The Aviator and Crimson Tide - both dirt cheap at present. Voyager was solid filmmaking and performances - it is worthy for sure. So are both Word is Out and Carol Reed’s Night Train to Munich. Eric, once again has me close on both Lizard in a Woman's Skin and Martin. Ditto for Gregory regarding Kadin Dusmani. I do give a thumbs down for The Deadly Tower and Showgirls...


Kadin Dusmani - A genuine TURKISH GIALLO from 1967! At that time, the Italians had just started warming up on the genre while their best examples came years later. This Turkish lost, spooky, misty, gothic giallo horror stands on its own, faithful to itself, quite original in ideas, full of surprises and almost empty as far as "similarities" to other films are concerned! The only surviving print was found in very good condition and ONAR FILMS is presenting it in another worldwide premiere.

Unthinkable BD - When a film is banished straight to DVD/Blu-ray we don't get our expectations too damn high. It is, however, not a precursor for ineffectual films - in fact, Unthinkable might be the new poster boy for these occasional exceptions. As a psychological thriller, director Gregor Jordan's (”The Informers”) film, works quite well. Raising the questions of grey-area politic, in this case how the US deals with terrorists, it also scores some heavy points. Performances? Michael Sheen - always brilliant, Carrie-Anne Moss, suitably cloaking her sexuality, as FBI agent Helen Brody - one of her best roles, Samuel L Jackson? - well, I wasn't quite sold on his less formal black-ops interrogator specialist Henry Herald 'H' Humphries. It was by no means a deal breaker but, well... Blu-ray Release date: June 15th, 2010

The Maid -With a few brushstrokes, Sebastian Silva communicates the complicated social and moral dynamic involved in having a live-in maid. His talent for incisive detail is apparent from the opening minutes of his new film, in which we see an upper-middle-class Chilean family celebrating the birthday of Raquel (Catalina Saavedra), who has lived with them for 21 years. DVD Release Date: June 22nd, 2010

Showgirls BD - The film is not, in short, quite unredeemably bad, and despite its NC-17 rating, it isn't anywhere near as perverted as "Basic Instinct." The actors throw themselves into it with the abandon that material like this demands, and Verhoeven brings to it the same skill he once lavished on good movies, like "The Fourth Man" and "Total Recall." It's just that you can't believe a single second of it, and you do begin to wish that in his research for his next project, Eszterhas makes it his business to learn something about eroticism. "Showgirls" is such a waste of a perfectly good NC-17 rating. Blu-ray Release Date: June 15th, 2010

The Deadly Tower - In August 1966, University of Texas at Austin student and ex-Marine Charles Whitman took over the top of the school's 307-foot Main Building tower and went on a shooting rampage, killing 14 people before he was fatally shot by police. Kurt Russell stars as Whitman in this chilling made-for-TV depiction of his shocking massacre; with Ned Beatty, John Forsythe, and Richard Yniguez. DVD Release Date: January 12th, 2010

The Aviator BD - From Hollywood's legendary Cocoanut Grove to the pioneering conquest of the wild blue yonder, Martin Scorsese's The Aviator celebrates old-school filmmaking at its finest. We say "old school" only because Scorsese's love of golden-age Hollywood is evident in his approach to his subject--Howard Hughes in his prime (played by Leonardo DiCaprio in his)--and especially in his technical mastery of the medium reflecting his love for classical filmmaking of the studio era. Even when he's using state-of-the-art digital trickery for the film's exciting flight scenes (including one of the most spectacular crashes ever filmed), Scorsese's meticulous attention to art direction and costume design suggests an impassioned pursuit of craftsmanship from a bygone era; every frame seems to glow with gilded detail. And while DiCaprio bears little physical resemblance to Hughes during the film's 20-year span (late 1920s to late '40s), he efficiently captures the eccentric millionaire's golden-boy essence, and his tragic descent into obsessive-compulsive seclusion. Blu-ray Release date: November 6th, 2007

Martin - Cuda (Lincoln Maazel) takes his troubled cousin Martin (John Amplas) into his home in exchange for working in his shop. Although he looks barely twenty, both Martin and his cousin are of the belief that he's actually 84 years old and a vampire. Cuda wants to save Martin's soul and destroy him (he is allowed in the meantime only to take victims outside of the city or be destroyed without salvation) but Martin is adamant that his condition is not due to a curse and that magic or religion can save him. Is he a vampire or just mentally ill (Cuda's niece thinks the family traditions have "infected" Martin and is herself deteriorating under Cuda's fanaticism). DVD Release Date: June 21st, 2010

Shogun Assassin - Shogun Assassin is the North American theatrical version of the first two 'Lone Wolf and Cub' films, 'Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance' and 'Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx'. The plot for Shogun Assasin's takes 12 minutes of footage 'Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance' and over seventy minutes of footage from 'Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx'. To help simply and stream line the story, a voice over was added for Shogun Assassin. Story wise Shogun Assassin stays fairly close to the first 'Lone Wolf and Cub' with the main difference being the removal of all Yagyu Clan references and in their place the shogun has become the main nemesis of Ogami Ittō, the renegade samurai. DVD Release Date: November 11th, 2008

Voyager ('Homo Faber') - Oscar nominee Sam Shepard takes on the role of a lifetime in award-winning director Volker Schlondorff's powerful story of a monumental love affair that spanned two generations and six continents. Following a trail of odd coincidences that leads him from a plane crash in Mexico to a transatlantic voyage, engineer Walter Faber (Shepard) meets the beautiful young Sabeth (Julie Delpy). Traveling across Europe together, Faber's life is rejuvenated by Sabeth's love until phantoms from his past confront him with an unbelievable truth. DVD Release Date: May 25th, 2010

Everlasting Moments BD - Swedish master Jan Troell, director of the beloved classics The Emigrants and The New Land, returns triumphantly with Everlasting Moments, the vivid, heartrending story of a woman liberated by art at the beginning of the twentieth century. Though poor and abused by her alcoholic husband, Maria Larsson (Maria Heiskanen, in a beautifully nuanced portrayal) finds an outlet in photography, which opens up her world for the first time. With a burnished bronze tint that evokes faded photographs, and a broad empathetic palette, Everlasting Moments—based on a true story—is a miraculous tribute to the power of image making. Blu-ray Release date: June 29th, 2010

Deanna Durbin: Sweetheart Pack - Deanna Durbin: Sweetheart Pack starts with her first feature for Universal, Three Smart Girls. She is not the center of this film, sharing the spotlight with Nan Grey and Barbara Read as her sisters, but she is very memorable from the very first time she appears on screen with a song My Heart Is Singing. This film fares the worst image-wise with very heavy grain and some damage visible. The next film on the first disc is Something in the Wind, which was one of her last movies. When the set was announced, this title was missing from the press release and One Hundred Men and a Girl - her best known film - was in its place. It would, actually, make more sense being in the package. DVD Release Date: August 3rd, 2004

Crime of Passion - After a tryst at a local hotel with her lover, writer Sonia (Serena Grandi, Tinto Brass' MIRANDA) is brutally murdered. The prime suspect is her husband actor Peter (Fabio Testi) who has been having his own share of affairs. Then there's the other likely suspects, Sonia's sister Tania (Grandi again), young actress Milena (Anna Maria Petrova), Tania's daughter Anna, playwright Stefan (John Armstead, KREOLA), and his wife/Peter's lover Julia (Florinda Bolkan). Assistant detective Ivan Zanova (Peter Martignetti) is certainly not up to weaving through the complexity of their world and his infatuation with crippled, emotionally immature Anna is a little creepy. DVD Release Date: April 27th, 2010

Lizard in a Woman's Skin - Carol (Florinda Bolkan, FOOTPRINTS) has been having disturbing dreams of a lesbian encounter with her neighbor Julia (Anita Strindberg, YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM AND ONLY I HAVE THE KEY) who has a habit of throwing drug-laden orgies in her next door flat. Carol's psychiatrist (Jorge Rigaud, ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK) believes that Julia symbolizes Carol's unconscious envy of the woman's liberated lifestyle. When Carol has a dream in which she murders Julia (under the watchful eyes of two hippies) and the woman turns up dead in the exact manner, Carol becomes the prime suspect; but is someone trying to frame her? DVD Release Date: June 7th, 2010

The Illusionist BD - Based on Steven Millhauser’s short story, “Eisenheim the Illusionist,” Neil Burger's 2006 film, The Illusionist, is appropriately set in the turn-of-the-century Austro-Hungarian Empire with Van Dyke-bearded Edward Norton's penetrating stare and a haunting Philip Glass score as keen parts of its mysterious and alluring aura. The plot revolves around some potential political volatility with a young and masterful magician figuring in as an integral cog in the country's future. His, once, puppy-love with royal Sophie (Jessica Biel) surfaces as a less developed and uninteresting element in the intriguing and intentionally paced plot. Blu-ray Release Date: June 8th, 2010

Night Train to Munich - Carol Reed’s Night Train to Munich is a twisting, turning, cloak-and-dagger delight, combining comedy, romance, and thrills with the greatest of ease. Paced like an out-of-control locomotive, Night Train takes viewers on a World War II–era journey from Prague to England to the Swiss Alps, as Nazis pursue a Czech scientist and his daughter (Margaret Lockwood), who are being aided by a debonair British undercover agent, played by Rex Harrison. This captivating, long-overlooked adventure—which also features Paul Henreid and a clever screenplay by Frank Launder and Sidney Gilliat, best known for writing Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes—is a deftly concocted spy game that could give the master of suspense a run for his money. DVD Release Date: June 29th, 2010

Word is Out - Word Is Out (1977) is a documentary film directed by a collective of six people known as the Mariposa Film Group: Peter Adair, Nancy Adair, Andrew Brown, Rob Epstein, Lucy Massie Phenix, and Veronica Selver. Peter Adair also produced the film. The film premiered in November 1977 at the Castro Theater in San Francisco and was released in 1978. The film intercuts interviews with 26 very diverse people—ranging in age from 18 to 77, in locales from San Francisco to New Mexico to Boston, in type from a bee-hived housewife to a sultry drag queen—who speak of their experiences as gay men and lesbians. Writer Elsa Gidlow, professor Sally Gearhart, and inventor John Burnside are among the interviewees. DVD Release Date: June 8th, 2010

Crimson Tide BD - From the pop quizzes the junior officers throw at each other about classic submarine movies to the potentially internecine duel between the captain and the exec about military strategy and the subsequent mutiny and its consequences; from the captain's Jack Russell terrier that has the run of the ship to the attack by a Russian sub, this is one a very few Jerry Bruckheimer feature films I can get completely caught up in. The director, Tony Scott, is working with a coherent script that doesn't get sidetracked by romances (think Top Gun). Even the usual heroics that so often define war stories are kept at bay – no michael intended. Blu-ray Release Date: February 5, 2008

The Perils of Pauline - The Perils of Pauline (1947), made when Hutton was at the peak of her fame and appeal, is very loosely based on the exploits of Pearl White, queen of the silent movie serials. The real White had been a circus performer who hurt her back falling off a horse, and had gone to work as a secretary with a film company. She got her break when the female lead of a western got sick. White didn't do many of her own stunts because of the back injury - small men stood in for her. Instead, she spent more time developing her screen persona. DVD Release Date: February 1st, 2000
