ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I watched so many impressive Blu-rays this week but I am still most in awe of Criterion's 4k restoration of Mike Nichols' The Graduate - it's stunning and the Simon & Garfunkel / Dave Grusin soundtrack sounds brilliant in lossless. Probably my favorite release of the year to date. Sticking with Criterion, Antonio Pietrangeli's I Knew Her Well floored me - another masterpiece on Blu-ray. Sam Fuller's Fixed Bayonets! gets a Masters of Cinema Blu-ray treatment and the film is a big advancement over the past DVD. Alfred Hitchcock's The Wrong Man looks textured and beautiful via Warner Archive's new dual-layered Blu-ray transfer - a must-own. BFI have put together a stacked package for Emir Kusturica's wild, epic Undergound - what a treat to own on Blu-ray. Arrow have done their thing with Takashi Miike's Audition - a new 2K restoration and filled with many new extras and 2 commentaries. Shout! Factory produce the Vincent Price Collection III with more of the actor's delightful genre films looking sweet in 1080P. Sinatra, Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood are enough of a reason to investigate Twilight Time's Blu-ray of Kings Go Forth - recommended! Pam Grier's always a favorite and Arrow's new Blu-ray of Sheba, Baby sends our defiant protagonist on another blaxploitation adventure. Ambush Bay is a better-than-average war-thriller and worth a spin on Kino's new, reasonably-priced, Blu-ray. Dog of the week is Eureka's Wild Orchid - a painful films that doesn't fulfil on it's 9 1/2 Weekes production roots but the new Blu-ray is the way to go if keen on the sexy cast. Eric covered four desirable DVDs this week; Marshland is a very highly regarded film and I'm going to seek out the overseas Blu-ray. Breathe is a deep, French youth drama that deserves an audience. The Cut also looks intriguing - a multi-language, visually stunning epic drama of faith. Secrets of War is a Dutch WWII drama that is also very highly acclaimed wining multiple awards. 

Noir Quote for today: “By doing one wrong thing, I thought I could make everything right.” Have a thrilling but safe week! - Gary


Audition BD - A widowed TV producer is encouraged by his teenage son to remarry before he gets too old. Unable to find anyone suitable, he decides to hold auditions for a false movie in order to test out potential wives. He thinks he may have found the one he is looking for when he auditions a former ballerina, but she seems too good to be true and an investigation into her past reveals a horrific secret. Blu-ray Release Date: February 29th, 2016

The Wrong Man BD - Director Alfred Hitchcock lets us know from the outset that The Wrong Man is a painfully true story and not one of his customary fabricated suspense yarns, through the simple expedient of walking before the camera and telling us as much (this introductory appearance replaced his planned cameo role as a nightclub patron). The real-life protagonist, musican Christopher Emmanuel Balestrero, is played by Henry Fonda. Happily married and gainfully employed at the Stork Club, Balestrero's life takes a disastrous turn when he goes to an insurance office, hoping to borrow on his wife's (Vera Miles) life insurance policy in order to pay her dental bills. Blu-ray Release Date: January 26th, 2016

Vincent Price Collection III BD - Shout! Factory produces another The Vincent Price Collection adding a third volume with the 1961 Jules Verne inspired story - adapted by Richard Matheson, Master of the World with Price as a Nemo-esque character with the capabilities to end all man-made war with his advanced air-machine. Tower of London is a 1962 remake of the 1939 feature, director Roger Corman, and Price as a, nasty, hunchbacked Richard III. Diary of a Madman, from 1963, has Vincent as a 19th Century Parisian gentleman possessed by a madman's ghost to commit brutal crimes. Cry of the Banshee has Price in Witchfinder General mode as a pious magistrate ready to inflict grievous bodily harm on any potential young women accused of witchery. The set is loaded with extras including commentaries, alternate versions and much more including the 1970 Evening of Edgar Allan Poe impressing with his acting chops reciting four Edgar Allen Poe stories: The Tell-Tale Heart, The Sphinx, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Pit and the Pendulum. Blu-ray Release Date: February 16th, 2016

Undergound BD - A great circus full of tragicomic satire, UNDERGROUND is a visionary masterpiece where hope, laughter and the joy of living overcome the difficulties of survival. In the midst of war, Marko and Blacky - two opportunistic buddies sharing a spirited lust for women, booze and madcap brawling - attain riches and heroic praise dealing arms to the war's resistance fighters. When things get too hot, they move into an intricate cellar packed with refugees whom Marko encourages to manufacture the contraband. With Blacky convinced he should remain hidden in the cellar until the war ends, Marko conspires to leave him there as he grows richer from the toils of the people living underground. Over fifteen years pass before a web of lies unfolds and Blacky emerges from the shelter to seek his revenge. Blu-ray Release Date: February 29th, 2016

Sheba, Baby BD - Pam Grier plays Sheba Shayne, a private eye based in Chicago who is called to her hometown to stop the local mob boss (played by "that bad D'Urville Martin", Black Caesar, Dolemite) from moving in on her father's loan business. Aided by her father's partner, Brick Williams (Austin Stoker, Assault on Precinct 13, Battle for the Planet of the Apes), Sheba finds out that the violent thugs aren't going go away with a fight. Car bombs, gun fights and boat chases ensue whilst armed with her curves, street smarts and a .44, Sheba is in for a bloodbath! Blu-rays Release date: February 8th-9th, 2016

The Graduate BD - Director Mike Nichols's THE GRADUATE is the satirical coming-of-age comedy that became an emotional touchstone for an entire generation. In the late 1960s, Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman), a confused college graduate, is pulled in myriad directions by family, friends, and associates just days after receiving his degree. Seduced by Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), an older friend of the family, Ben carries on an affair with the married woman even as he falls for her daughter, Elaine (Katharine Ross). However, Ben and Elaine's attempts at romance are threatened by the spiteful rage of Mrs. Robinson, who proceeds to hastily arrange Elaine's marriage to another boy, leading up to one of the most memorable endings in cinema history. Criterion Blu-ray Release Date: February 23rd, 2016

Wild Orchid BD - Beautiful young attorney Emily Reed (Otis) travels to Rio to work with international negotiator Claudia Lirones (Bisset) on a multi-million dollar deal. But once exposed to the raw sensuality of her surroundings, Emily is increasingly drawn into a world of erotic fantasy. Eager to guide Emily through this underworld is Claudia's old flame Wheeler (Rourke). Mysterious and seductive Wheeler unleashes Emily's most primitive desires... even as she threatens to unlock his world-weary heart. Blu-ray Release Date: February 8th, 2016

Kings Go Forth BD - Frank Sinatra and Tony Curtis star in Kings Go Forth (1958) as a pair of American soldiers in World War II France, both falling in love with the same woman (Natalie Wood), an American-born expatriate with a difficult secret. Even as they are trying to help bring the war to an end, both are doing battle with the difficulties of their mutual relationship. Directed by Delmer Daves (3:10 to Yuma), with a score by Elmer Bernstein, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track. Blu-ray Release date: January, 2016

I Knew Her Well BD - Following the gorgeous, seemingly liberated Adriana (Divorce Italian Style’s Stefania Sandrelli) as she chases her dreams in the Rome of La dolce vita, I Knew Her Well is at once a delightful immersion in the popular music and style of Italy in the sixties and a biting critique of its sexual politics and the culture of celebrity. Over a series of intimate episodes, just about every one featuring a different man, a new hairstyle, and an outfit to match, the unsung Italian master Antonio Pietrangeli, working from a script he co-wrote with Ettore Scola, composes a deft, seriocomic character study that never strays from its complicated central figure. I Knew Her Well is a thrilling rediscovery, by turns funny, tragic, and altogether jaw-dropping. Blu-ray Release date: February 23rd, 2016

Fixed Bayonets! BD - His films are like scenarios made from communities of rats, the camera itself a king rat,' David Thomson wrote of Fuller. The rat trap is the Korean war, in a studio set of fake rock and fake snow, literally a theatre of war. The constantly moving camera isolates the tensions within an American platoon fighting a rearguard action. As the leaders are picked off by the 'alien' reds, one sensitive corporal's struggle with the responsibilities of leadership drags the plot in a slow dance of death; only to be blasted apart by a typical cigar-chewing affirmation of good old Yankee guts. Blu-ray Release Date: February 15th, 2016

Ambush Bay BD - General MacArthur doesn't know it, but he's headed for an ambush. Hugh O'Brian (Ten Little Indians), Mickey Rooney and James Mitchum star in this top-notch WWII nail-biter that'll keep you on the edge of your seat with consistent excitement right until the explosive end. A marine patrol secretly lands on the Japanese-occupied island of Siarago. Their mission: to locate a Japanese-American girl with vital information concerning General MacArthur's pending Philippine invasion. What they uncover instead is a Japanese plot to detonate underwater mines as the US fleet enters the bay. Cut off from outside communication, these brave marines must find a way to prevent what could be the worst naval tragedy from ever happening. Blu-ray Release date: February 16th, 2016

Marshland - The Spanish deep South, 1980. In a small village frozen in time - close to the labyrinth of the marshlands and the rice paddies - two young sisters have disappeared. Their mother forces an investigation which brings together two clashing homicide detectives. With disparate personalities, detectives Juan and Pedro must settle their differences to hunt down a killer who has terrorized this forgotten town for years. Marshland swept Spain's GOYA Awards winning 10 prizes including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay and most recently won the Audience Award for Best Film at the European Film Awards. DVD Release Date: February 9th 2016

Breathe - A taut, nuanced story about the depths of female friendships and the dark side of teenage infatuations, Breathe, the sophomore directorial effort from Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Beginners), is an assured adaptation of the sensational French young adult novel of the same name. Charlie (Joséphine Japy) is seventeen and bored. Her estranged parents are too caught up in their own drama to pay her much attention. School holds no surprises either, and Charlie grows tired of her staid friends. Enter Sarah (Lou de Laâge), a confident and charismatic new transfer student who brings with her an alluring air of boldness and danger. The two form an instant connection, and through shared secrets, love interests and holiday getaways their relationship deepens to levels of unspoken intimacy. But with this intimacy comes jealousy and unrealistic expectations, and soon the teens find themselves on a dangerous trajectory toward an inevitable and unforeseen collapse. DVD Release Date: February 2nd, 2016

The Cut - Fatih Akin's epic drama about one man's journey through the Ottoman Empire after surviving the 1915 Armenian genocide. Deported from his home in Mardin, Nazareth (Tahar Rahim, A Prophet) moves onwards as a forced laborer. When he learns that his twin daughters may still be alive, his hope is revived and he travels to America, via Cuba, to find them. His search takes him from the Mesopotamian deserts and Havana to the barren and desolate prairies of North Dakota. On this odyssey, he encounters a range of very different people: angelic and kind-hearted characters, but also the devil incarnate. DVD Release Date: January 19th, 2016

Secrets of War - Tuur and Lambert are best friends in a Nazi-occupied Dutch village who pass their days playing soldiers and exploring local caves, mimicking a war that seems far removed from their everyday life. When Maartje joins their class, the young girl immediately stands out as different from her classmates. Yet the boys embrace their new friend, forming a unique bond based on shared adventures, secrets and mischief. Ultimately, the realities of war find even them - Lambert's father, a Nazi sympathizer, is named mayor of their town and Tuur discovers his own father and brother have joined the resistance, instantly putting the two boys at odds. Meanwhile, Maartje is hiding a secret of her own, one that not only threatens to tear the new friends apart, but could lead to devastating consequences for anyone involved in keeping it. Secrets Of War puts both the danger and the humanity of wartime friendships squarely on the shoulders of three children who must face extraordinary circumstances with a maturity far beyond their years. DVD Release Date: December 1st, 2015
