ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Obviously, the big release this week is Arrow's Blu-ray package of The Jacques Rivette Collection. It's wonderfully complete and a definite contender for next year's Blu-ray of the Year Poll. I was also very impressed with Criterion's Inside Llewyn Davis Blu-ray - stacked with extras of a masterful, brilliant, film. Our highest recommendation! I also gained even more appreciation for Peter Yates The Friends of Eddie Coyle via Masters of Cinema's new Blu-ray. Giuseppe De Santis's neorealistic gem Bitter Rice gets the Criterion treatment - and it's a valuable package at lower-tier pricing. Strongly recommended! I had a lot of fun with Shout! Factory's new Blu-ray of The Brain That Wouldn't Die - exploitive, schlock cinema rarely gets this relevant. I had never seen Joseph Losey's Figures in a Landscape and really enjoyed it via Kino Lorber's Blu-ray presentation. 45 Years is such a great film and now available on Artificial Eye Blu-ray - don't miss this one! Noir lovers with gravitate towards The Captive City as another fine example from the cycle looking substantially improved on Kino's new Blu-ray. Richard Lester's The Knack... and How To Get It goes Blu-ray and the film remains a fun artefact from the swinging 60's scene in London. We compare our third Blu-ray of Freddie Francis' Dr. Terror's House of Horrors - the Wicked-Vision Media edition is a very strong one from Germany using the Pinewood restoration and stacked with extras. Arrow gives Russ Meyer's Beyond the Valley of the Dolls a stellar limited edition Blu-ray for a wild, unusual, flamboyant, sex-filled film. on DVD Eric covered 5 SDs discs including the immensely lauded Xenia, the Scandinavian crime-thriller-mystery series The Bride Season 3, the romance-drama Amorous and two gay films Drown and Surface. Noirish Quote of the Week:

"She was a tramp.”
“She was a human being. Let me remind you that even the most unworthy of us has a right to life and the pursuit of happiness.”
“From what I hear she pursued it in all directions.”

Have a great week! - Gary


45 Years BD - The winner of the Silver Bear for Best Actress (Charlotte Rampling) and Best Actor (Tom Courtenay) at the Berlin International Film Festival, Andrew Haigh's (Weekend, Looking) film is a moving and profound look at marriage and the secrets we keep. There is just one week until Kate Mercer's (Rampling) 45th wedding anniversary and the planning for the party is going well. But then a letter arrives for her husband (Courtenay). The body of his first love has been discovered, frozen and preserved in the icy glaciers of the Swiss Alps. By the time the party is upon them, five days later, there may not be a marriage left to celebrate. Blu-ray Release date: January 11th, 2016

Dr. Terror's House of Horrors BD - Dr. Terror (Peter Cushing) is a mysterious fortune teller who boards a train and offers to tell fellow passengers (Christopher Lee, Roy Castle, Donald Sutherland) their fortune with tarot cards. Five possible futures unfold: an architect returns to his ancestral home to find a werewolf out for revenge; a huge flesh-eating vine takes over a house; a musician gets involved with voodoo; an art critic is pursued by a disembodied hand and a doctor discovers his new wife is a vampire. But they all end in the same result…..DEATH. A fascinating and fast paced example of portmanteau film-making with a deadly twist in the tale. Wicked-Vision Media Blu-ray Release date: November 30th, 2015

Bitter Rice BD - During planting season in Northern Italy’s Po Valley, an earthy rice-field worker (Silvana Mangano) falls in with a small-time criminal (Vittorio Gassman) who is planning a daring heist of the crop, as well as his femme-fatale-ish girlfriend, played by the Hollywood star Doris Dowling. Both a socially conscious look at the hardships endured by underpaid field workers and a melodrama tinged with sex and violence, this early smash for producer extraordinaire Dino De Laurentiis and director Giuseppe De Santis is neorealism with a heaping dose of pulp. Blu-ray Release date: January 12th, 2016

The Captive City BD - One of several early-1950s films to capitalize on the Kefauver Committee's investigation of organized crime, The Captive City stars John Forsythe as crusading editor Jim Austin. While Austin prepares his testimony before the Committee, the film flashes back to the events which led to this courageous act. Victor Sutherland plays mob boss Murray Sirak, who has the entire police force of Austin's hometown under his thumb. Sirak in turns takes his orders from an unseen Mister Big, who of course is "above the law"--or so it seems. Based on the experiences of Time magazine reporter Alvin Josephy Jr. (who co-authored the script), Captive City contains the added fillip of a guest appearance by Senator Estes Kefauver himself. Blu-ray Release date: January 5th, 2016

The Brain That Wouldn't Die BD - After a car crash, a man keeps his wife's head alive in his laboratory. I really have a soft spot for films like this. I wish I knew why. Maybe I find the sloppy and frugal production values endearing. The producers knew that they weren't making Citizen Kane... they were taking advantage of some props and sets that were laying around from a previous film and mish mashing it all together into a ridiculous horror film that eventually has attained quite a cult following. You have to respect the audacious boldness in both the film's name and some exploitive scenes within - one particularly contrived is the 'cat-fight' between the 2 trashy strippers (potential body parts for Dr. Cortner). Heck, its even hard to critique this film with a straight face. It's all fun and as campy a way to spend an evening as you will find in film-land. Cinema can be so bad sometimes that it is good! Blu-ray Release date: December 22nd, 2015

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls BD - Three busty pop singers looking for stardom come to Hollywood with a transsexual manager in tow. All the typical stereotypes are there and Meyer adds his usual flamboyant touches. Although he has been criticized for demeaning and exploiting women, there can be no doubt that it is the females that are in charge here with the male characters washed out and pathetic by comparison. Blu-ray Release date: January 18th, 2016

The Knack... and How To Get It BD - Richard Lester's The Knack. . .and How to Get It is thought by many to be a classic black-and-white comedy of sexual mores in swinging 60s London, but the film's value as more than a relic of its time is lessened by its frequently stagy dialogue and lighthearted view of sexual assault. Blu-ray Release date: January 12th, 2016

The Jacques Rivette Collection BD - The Jacques Rivette Collection brings together some of the director s hardest to see works, each restored, newly translated and debuting on home video for the first time in UK. Complementing Out 1 are two parallel films , Duelle (une quarantaine) and Noroît (une vengeance). The former sees Rivette head into fantasy territory: the Queen of the Sun (Bulle Ogier) and the Queen of the Night (Juliet Berto) search for a magical diamond in present-day Paris. The latter is a loose adaptation of The Revenger's Tragedy and a pirate tale, starring Geraldine Chaplin (Nashville, Cría cuervos). Also included is Merry-Go-Round, in which Joe Dallesandro (Flesh for Frankenstein) and Maria Schneider (The Passenger, Last Tango in Paris) are summoned to Paris, kickstarting the most surreal of all Rivette's mysteries. Blu-ray Release date: January 19th, 2016

The Friends of Eddie Coyle BD - In one of the best performances of his legendary career, Robert Mitchum plays small-time gunrunner Eddie “Fingers” Coyle in Peter Yates’s adaptation of George V. Higgins’s acclaimed novel The Friends of Eddie Coyle. World-weary and living hand to mouth, Coyle works on the sidelines of the seedy Boston underworld just to make ends meet. But when he finds himself facing a second stretch of hard time, he’s forced to weigh loyalty to his criminal colleagues against snitching to stay free. Directed with a sharp eye for its gritty locales and an open heart for its less-than-heroic characters, this is one of the true treasures of 1970s Hollywood filmmaking—a suspenseful crime drama in stark, unforgiving daylight. Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Release date: January 18th, 2016

Figures in a Landscape BD - Based on a novel by Barry England, Joseph Losey's Figures in a Landscape stars Robert Shaw and Malcolm McDowell as two escaped prisoners in an unidentified totalitarian country. MacConnachie (Shaw) and Ansell (McDowell) spend most of their time on the run from an omnipresent police helicopter. Along the way, the two men are helped by "the people," who are as contemptuous of the powers that be as MacConnachie and Ansell. Blu-ray Release date: January 12th, 2016

Inside Llewyn Davis BD - The visionary chroniclers of eccentric Americana Joel and Ethan Coen present one of their greatest creations in Llewyn Davis, a singer barely eking out a living on the peripheries of the flourishing Greenwich Village folk scene of the early sixties. As embodied by Oscar Isaac in a revelatory performance, Llewyn (loosely modeled on the Village folk legend Dave Van Ronk) is extraordinarily talented but also irascible, rude, and self-defeating. His circular odyssey through an unforgiving winter cityscape, evocatively captured by cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel, is realized with poignant humor and the occasional surreal touch. Featuring a folk soundtrack curated by T Bone Burnett, Inside Llewyn Davis reminds us that in the Coens’ world, history isn’t necessarily written by the winners. Blu-ray Release date: January 19th, 2016

Amorous - Four Londoners, weary of the pressures and expectations of big city life, move to an isolated country cottage. The group crafts strange new rules and rituals to help them combat their complacency and cynicism. They also test social conventions and their own inhibitions by living communally, swapping partners and exploring unconventional sexual relationships. Their new personal and sexual bonds are tested by the arrival of an ex-lover. DVD Release Date: December 1st, 2015

The Bride Season 3 - Saga Noren (Sofia Helin) returns in the much-awaited third season of The Bridge the Swedish/Danish co-production which is set on the border between Sweden (Malmö ) and Denmark ( Copenhagen) connected via the Øresund Bridge. Bron/Broen has been sold to an incredible 157 countries/territories and the series has also been very successful in a number of festivals. It has won the prestigious Golden Nymph for Best European drama television series on Télévision Festival Monte-Carlo in fierce competition against Europe's most qualitative series. When season two premiered in England became the highest rated drama series in BBC4 's history ever. DVD Release Date: December 21st, 2015

Drown - Len is a Surf Lifesaving champion, a legend in the cloistered surf club just like his father. But when the younger, faster, fitter Phil arrives at the club, Len's legendary status starts to crumble. Then Len sees Phil arriving in the company of another man; a man Phil gives a farewell kiss to. Phil is gay. Over the summer season, Len starts to form unexpected, confusing feelings for Phil. When Phil de-thrones Len at the annual surf competition, Len and his buddy Meat take Phil out on an intoxicated bender through the seedy city. Jealousy, homophobic fear and unrequited lust culminate in a tragic late night trip back to beach where Len seeks total oblivion. DVD Release Date: December 15th, 2015

Xenia - XENIA follows two young brothers in search of their birth father across the colorful landscape of Greece. Dany, 16, leaves Crete to find his brother Odysseus who lives in Athens and they journey to Thessaloniki where they think their father is living. When the handsome Odysseus isn't protecting his day dreaming, gay younger brother, he auditions for the television talent show 'Greek Star' where he pursues his fantasy of becoming a singing star. A comic and touching road trip of two brothers connecting and searching for their dreams. DVD Release Date: December 8th, 2015

Surface - Evan Jones, a child orphan who, for years, was shifted from one foster home to another is now a disaffected college student living with his wealthy boyfriend, Chris. Their social and financial disparities have made their relationship increasingly volatile despite their mutual love for one another. While sifting through old relics at an elderly man s yard sale, Evan finds an 8mm movie camera. The man offers to teach Evan how to use it if he comes back the following week. Upon returning, Evan meets the man s 43-year-old son, Peter. They strike up a conversation and Peter gives him reels of old 8mm movies that are collecting dust in the garage.
