ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I was quite keen on Berberian Sound Studio this past week and even made it the Feature Blu-ray for January. I suspect many will feel as positive. Criterion's Blu-ray of The Tin Drum seems to be the definitive 1080P release - an easy recommendation. Masters of Cinema's Fear and Desire has some great extras and is also the superior package for Kubrick fans. Monte Hellman's Two-Lane Blacktop is such a cool classic and Criterion have offered a new hi-def release to covet. William Wyler's Mrs. Miniver is a great film to own in the new format. Wake in Fright was a forgotten gem - now restored and available through Image Entertainment in the US. Going back in time to the Art Deco-filled Grand Hotel is a very satisfying viewing experience. For Sherlock devotees that can't get enough The Seven- Per-Cent Solution gives an alternative take on the world's greatest detective. Still fun. Wes Craven's Deadly Blessing has it's quota of cheese but can still make for an enjoyable late film night in the Home Theater. Kazan's Wild River remains a memorable reference for character performances but the Fox Blu-ray has altered the colors too dramatically for this reviewer. On DVD Gregory covered Crime Does Not Pay - a collection of 50 MGM shorts in the Noir vein. Walk Softly, Stranger sounds like an atmospheric Noir centering on a charming, smooth-talking gambler - it may take a bask seat to Jean Negulesco's The Conspirators with Hedy, Henreid, Greenstreet and Lorre. Directed By Billy Wilder has two strong films by the iconic director - Five Graves to Cairo and A Foreign Affair. Robert Mitchum in Foreign Intrigue sounds like it may have been a miss - but it may be worth one spin. Eric reviewed the documentary Inspired: The Voices Against Prop 8 and The Falls about about two missionaries that fall in love.! Let's have a great 2013!!


The Conspirators - Negulesco and noir - a heady brew. Jean Negulesco proved his stunning noir debut The Mask of Dimitrios was no fluke by following up with an astonishing run of film noir classics, starting with the war noir intrigue and romance of The Conspirators. Hedy Lamarr (The Heavenly Body) headlines a cast of Casablanca veterans (Paul Henreid and "The Masters of Mystery," Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre) as the mysterious Irene Von Mohr, whose secrets lie at the heart of wartime Lisbon's underworld and underground. After committing an act of sabotage against the Nazis, Vincent Van Der Lyn (Henreid) escapes from the Netherlands to neutral Portugal, where he enlists in the underground resistance under the leadership of Ricardo Quintanilla (Greenstreet). Tasked by Quitanilla with uncovering a traitor, Vincent soon finds himself being fitted for a frame while falling for the secretive Irene. And the Nazis are closing in... DVD Release Date: June 19th, 2012

Directed By Billy Wilder - Both films in this Double Feature, "Five Graves to Cairo" (1943) and "A Foreign Affair" (1948) were directed by Billy Wilder. Wilder fled Nazi Germany in 1933 and had emerged by the 1940's as one of the most talented film writers/directors in America. In 1944 came "Double Indemnity", 1945 "Lost Weekend" and 1950 "Sunset Boulevard" among others made between 1939-1950. Presented here for the first time on DVD this Double Feature is reflective of Wilder's "astringent wit, piercing intelligence, and attraction to controversial subject matter". It is remarkable that it has taken this long for "Five Graves to Cairo" from 1943 (nominated for 3 academy awards) and "A Foreign Affair" from 1948 (nominated for 2 academy awards) until this year (2012) to be released on DVD. Mr. Wilder's career spanned more than 50 years and 60 films. It is a serious treat to have yet two more of his films here made available for home theater. DVD Release Date: October 15th, 2012

Crime Does Not Pay - The Complete Shorts Collection (1935-1947) of 50 MGM shorts give an intimate look at mankind’s most seductive and destructive past time – CRIME! Available for the first time in a 6-disc package. DVD Release Date: July 6th, 2012

Inspired: The Voices Against Prop 8 - On November 4, 2008 the voters of California passed Proposition 8 revoking marriage rights for same sex couples. The next day in Los Angeles a movement was born. Chronicling several people's lives in the wake of the passage of Prop 8, we meet several people from all walks of life, inspired to action in ways they never dreamed, to a conclusion they never expected. Experience the passionate rallies and defiant marches of the new gay rights movement as it swept through Los Angeles and ignited the world beyond. Intimate interviews reveal all the ways the movement comes together, and the subtle and not-so-subtle ways it can be pulled apart from within. Shot in early 2009, our cast is anxiously waiting for the California Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of Prop 8, and preparing for "Day of Decision." INSPIRED: THE VOICES AGAINST PROP 8 goes behind the headlines and propaganda to explore the real people who make up a movement. You will be INSPIRED. DVD Release Date: December 4th, 2012

The Falls - RJ and Chris are two teenage boys raised in Mormon communities. Though both are poster boys for their church with perfect academic records and pretty girlfriends, buried feelings soon rise to the surface when they are assigned to serve a mission together as part of their rite of passage. Now, they will have to make sense of the conflict between their desires and the rules that govern the only world they know. DVD Release Date: December 11th, 2012

Foreign Intrigue - A wealthy man of mystery drops dead in his villa on the Riviera. His American press agent (Robert Mitchum) finds him but suspicions grow when he's asked four times in succession if his employer `said anything' before he died. So Mitchum sets out to discover who the man was and how he accumulated his fortune. He starts with the merry widow (Genevieve Page) and travels on to Vienna and Stockholm, where he falls for the daughter (Ingrid Thulin) of a deceased industrialist whom may have been a blackmail target. Mitchum finds that he, too, is being followed.... DVD Release Date: September 4th, 2012

Walk Softly, Stranger - A stranger with a mysterious past arrives in a small, quiet Ohio town and forever changes the lives he touches. Joseph Cotten stars as Chris Hale, the enigmatic drifter who comes to the town to assume an ordinary life: he takes a room at a boarding house and finds a job at the local shoe factory. Hale also takes a liking to his boss's daughter, Elaine (Alida Valli), who is permanently confined to a wheelchair due to a skiing accident. Elaine is deeply embittered by her disability, but she feels a strange attraction for Hale, though she knows nothing of his past. It is only when some other strangers arrive in town searching for Hale that the truth is learned about his identity. Will Elaine's love for him be strong enough to withstand this startling revelation? DVD Release Date: August 21st, 2012

Grand Hotel BD - Based on Vicki Baum's novel and produced by Irving Thalberg, this film is about the lavish Grand Hotel in Berlin, a place where "nothing ever happens." That statement proves to be false, however, as the story follows an intertwining cast of characters over the course of one tumultuous day. Greta Garbo is Grusinskaya, a ballerina whose jewels are coveted by Baron von Geigern (John Barrymore), a thief who fancies Flaemmchen (Joan Crawford), a stenographer and the mistress of Preysing (Wallace Beery), businessman boss of Kringelein (Lionel Barrymore), a terminally ill bookkeeper who is under the care of alcoholic physician Dr. Otternschlag (Lewis Stone). Grand Hotel won Best Picture at the 1932 Academy Awards. Blu-ray Release date: January 8th, 2012

Wild River BD - With a touch of humanism and social conviction Wild River focuses on a TVA dam project that will evict a family (matriarch Van Fleet) and her significant number of black employees. Lee Remick, as well as being jaw-dropping stunning as a country lass, is a widowed daughter of said family and graces the screen with another of her magnificent performances. Montgomery Clift's character, Chuck Glover, has the unenviable job as the ministry employee who must shoo the tenants to vacate. Monty and Remick establish a relationship which helps convert Cliff to the side of the righteous. Kazan's build seems slower than the erratic pace of the plot but it is still superior Hollywood fare shot in magnificent cinemascope. Blu-ray Release Date: January 15th, 2013

The Tin Drum BD - Danzig, Germany, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and the irresponsibility of society, Oskar rejects both, and, at his third birthday, refuses to grow older. Caught in a baffling state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out at all he surveys with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding, chaotic world marches onward to the madness and folly of World War II. Honored with the Palme d’Or at the 1979 Cannes Film Festival and the 1979 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film, Volker Schlöndorff’s The Tin Drum (Die Blechtrommel) is a truly visionary adaptation of Nobel laureate Günter Grass’ acclaimed novel, an unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire. Blu-ray Release Date: January 15th, 2013

The Seven- Per-Cent Solution BD - The world’s two greatest masters of the art of deduction, Sherlock Holmes and Sigmund Freud, meet for the first time in this delightful mystery adventure based on the best-selling novel by Nicholas Meyer. This stylishly directed entertainment boasts a superb cast headed by Nicol Williamson as Holmes, Alan Arkin as Freud and, in a brilliant example of off-beat casting, Robert Duvall as Dr. Watson. To this ingenious tale of detection, addiction and abduction must be added the excitement of the chase - capped by a sword fight on top of a puffing locomotive roaring across Europe! Blu-ray Release date: January 22nd, 2013

Fear and Desire BD - Independently financed with contributions from Stanley Kubrick’s family and friends in an era when an “independent cinema” was still far from the norm, Fear and Desire first saw release in 1953 at the Guild Theater in New York, thanks to the enterprising distributor Joseph Burstyn. Now, with this new restoration carried out in 2012 by The Library of Congress, a film that for decades has remained nearly impossible to see will at last appear in a proper release in the United Kingdom. Kubrick’s debut feature tells the story of a war waged (in the present? in the future?) between two forces. In the midst of the conflict, a plane carrying four soldiers crashes behind enemy lines. From here out, it is kill or be killed: a female hostage is taken on account of being a potential informer; an enemy general and his aide are discovered during a scouting mission… What lies in store for this ragtag group of killers, between their perilous landing in the forest, and the final raft-float downstream… all this constitutes the tale of Kubrick’s precocious entry into feature filmmaking. Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Release date: January 28th, 2013

Wake in Fright BD - Awe-inspiring, brutal and stunning, Wake in Fright is the story of John Grant, a bonded teacher who arrives in the rough outback mining town of Bundanyabba planning to stay overnight before catching the plane to Sydney. But his one night stretches to five and he plunges headlong toward his own destruction. When the alcohol-induced mist lifts, the educated John Grant is no more. Instead there is a self-loathing man in a desolate wasteland, dirty, red-eyed, sitting against a tree and looking at a rifle with one bullet left... Image Entertainment Blu-ray Release date: January 15th, 2013

Berberian Sound Studio BD - A timid sound engineer from rural Surrey arrives in Italy to work on a mysterious horror film, mixing blood-curdling screams with the grotesque sounds of hacked vegetables. But as the on-screen violence seeps into his consciousness reality and fantasy become blurred and the nightmare starts to awake. Daringly original and masterfully constructed, this inspired homage to 70s Giallo horror is a devastating assault on the eyes and brain, already being compared to the films of Ingmar Bergman and David Lynch. Blu-ray Release date: December 31st, 2012

Mrs. Miniver BD - Wartime melodrama with William Wyler's deft directorial touch of realism interspersed with sympathetic and lovable characters. Winner of multiple awards this film may feel quite dated to modern viewers, but regardless, it is a very worthwhile viewing experience with everlasting themes of respect, community and familial bonding. Characters are shown with subtle flaws enhancing their realism and the story is one of consequence and drama probably touching on memories of many individuals who lived through similar tribulations of World War II. Being aware of the period this film was made it showed a prevalent 'shot-in-the-arm' feel for the Allies and although, not treating the topic politically even-handedly, it did not overindulge to allow generalizations. I say immerse yourself in the cinematic power of William Wyler and sip from the fountain of a divisive moment in humanity that we can hope has vanished forever. Blu-ray Release Date: January 8th, 2013

Two-Lane Blacktop BD - Drag racing east from Los Angeles in a souped-up ’55 Chevy are the wayward Driver and Mechanic (singer-songwriter James Taylor and the Beach Boys’ Dennis Wilson, in their only acting roles), accompanied by a tagalong Girl (Laurie Bird). Along the way, they meet Warren Oates’s Pontiac GTO–driving wanderer and challenge him to a cross-country race. The prize: their cars’ pink slips. But no summary can do justice to the existential punch of Two-Lane Blacktop. With its gorgeous widescreen compositions and sophisticated look at American male obsession, this stripped-down narrative from maverick director Monte Hellman is one of the artistic high points of 1970s cinema, and possibly the greatest road movie ever made. Criterion Blu-ray Release Date: January 8th, 2013

Deadly Blessing BD - When a former member of a religious cult dies in a mysterious accident, his wife Martha (Maren Jensen, Battlestar Galactica), who now lives alone and close to the cult’s church, begins to fear for her life and the lives of her visiting friends (Susan Buckner, Sharon Stone). Strange and deadly events begin to happen... Could she be the target of the evil cult and its fanatical leader Isaiah (Ernest Borgnine)? Directed by Wes Craven (Scream, A Nightmare on Elm Street) and starring Jeff East (Pumpkinhead), Lisa Hartman (The 17th Bride) and Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), this consistently terrifying film delivers unpredictable plot twists (Time Out) and visual shocks galore.
