ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I was pretty blown away by how Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief looked on Blu-ray. Wow - it brought up such nostalgic pleasure. Just beautiful. No film that I have seen in the new format had a bigger impact on - compared to SD-DVD - than Cimino's The Deer Hunter. A must-own as far as I am concerned. Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ also improved my appreciation after a presentation in the Blu-ray format. I think The Mountain is a pretty good film - one worth indulging in the new format. Taking a step back into the 70's with Puzzle of a Downfall Child was a positive experience. Staying art-leaning Malle's Vanya on 42nd Street has good value in my opinion. Definitely more in the Hollywood vein Runaway Jury is an intriguing court room thriller in a decent Blu-ray. Baba Yaga has its niche following but Where Love Has Gone and The Buccaneer get thumbs down for 1080P value. On DVD it's nice to see Fritz Lang's The Spiders get a new release. I thought The Woman With the Five Elephants was a fabulous documentary that I can certainly recommend. Eric did a comparison of the Indian Peepli [LIVE] and the horror, simply entitled, Evidence. Have a wonderfully peaceful week!


The Buccaneer BD - Cecil B. DeMille was set to direct a remake of his 1938 swashbuckler classic, The Buccaneer, he suddenly fell very ill and his son-in-law and screen legend, Anthony Quinn jumped in and took over the directorial duties… this was the first and only film directed by Quinn. Yul Brynner plays the debonair pirate Jean Lafitte who historically aided General Andrew Jackson (Charlton Heston) against the British during the War of 1812. Lafitte has been carrying a discreet love affair with Annette Claiborne (Inger Stevens), the daughter of governor William Claiborne (E.G. Marshall) who promises to pardon the pirate and his men. The stellar cast includes Charles Boyer as Lafitte’s right hand man and Claire Bloom as the daughter of a rival pirate. Credited as Supervising executive producer, this was Cecil B. DeMille’s final film; he died shortly after the release of this film. Blu-ray Release date: February 28th, 2012

Baba Yaga BD - Legendary sex symbol Carroll Baker (BABY DOLL, THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS) stars as a mysterious sorceress with an undying hunger for sensual ecstasy and unspeakable torture. But when she casts a spell over a beautiful young fashion photographer (the gorgeous Isabelle De Funes), Milan's most luscious models are sucked into a nightmare world of lesbian seduction and shocking sadism. Are these carnal crimes the result of one woman's forbidden fantasies or is this the depraved curse of the devil witch known as BABA YAGA? Blu-ray Release date: February 28th, 2012

Vanya on 42nd Street BD - In the early nineties, theater director André Gregory mounted a series of spare, private performances of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya in a crumbling Manhattan playhouse. This experiment in pure theater—featuring a remarkable cast of actors, including Wallace Shawn, Julianne Moore, Brooke Smith, and George Gaynes—would have been lost to time had it not been captured on film, with subtle cinematic brilliance, by Louis Malle. Vanya on 42nd Street is as memorable and emotional a screen version of Chekhov’s masterpiece as one could ever hope to see. This film, which turned out to be Malle’s last, is a tribute to the playwright’s devastating work as well as to the creative process itself. Blu-ray Release date: February 28th, 2012

Runaway Jury BD - Although the jury selection process is intended to weed out bias among prospective jurors, it's an open secret that both sides look for bias -- in their own favor, of course. There's an argument that juries would be more fairly selected by a random process, and "Runaway Jury" plays like the poster child for that theory. The new John Grisham thriller is about a jury consultant who tries to guarantee a friendly panel, and a juror who does a little free-lance jury consulting on his own. Blu-ray Release date: February 28th, 2012

Puzzle of a Downfall Child BD - Very much a film of its period (1970), when Alain Resnais' subjective and lyrical editing patterns were at the height of their influence, this is the first feature of former fashion photographer Jerry Schatzberg. It deals with the memories and imaginings of a fashion model (Faye Dunaway) who's attempting to recover from a nervous breakdown in a beach cottage, and shares the fragmented, mosaic form as well as some of the melancholia of the 1968 Petulia—though not much of its saving humor. I didn't warm to this film, but given the quality of some of Schatzberg's subsequent work, especially Scarecrow and Reunion, and the claims made for this picture by Michel Ciment, Schatzberg's biggest champion, it may deserve a second look. The script is by Five Easy Pieces's Adrien Joyce, writing under the pseudonym Carol Eastman; the secondary cast includes Barry Primus, Viveca Lindfors, Barry Morse, and Roy Scheider. Blu-ray Release date: February 22nd, 2012

Where Love Has Gone BD - Susan Hayward and Bette Davis share top honors in impressive performances, former as the daughter whose life is a story of indiscretions. Davis, smart in a white wig, plays the autocratic mother, who always sees that the family name is protected at any price, a scheming woman of unscrupulous methods and seemingless inexhaustible means. Picture is a brilliant showcase for both actresses and projects them in roles which will find much comment. As the mixed-up teenager who never knew domestic happiness, Joey Heatherton is ideally cast and delivers a compelling portrayal. Blu-ray Release date: February 28th, 2012

The Mountain BD - Retired mountain climber and guide Zachary Wheeler (Spencer Tracy) reluctantly helps his younger brother (Robert Wagner) scale a treacherous mountain slope to reach the site of a recent plane crush. Truly his brother’s keeper, he puts aside their differences and agrees to help his inexperienced brother on an immoral looting mission. After reaching the crash site the brothers discover a lone survivor (Anna Kashfi)… Zachary immediately starts caring for the injured young woman planning her rescue while his brother would rather abandon her and make off with the loot. The stellar cast also includes Claire Trevor, William Demarest and E.G. Marshall. This one-of-a-kind action-adventure was directed by Edward Dmytryk (The Caine Mutiny). Blu-ray Release date: February 28th, 2012

The Last Temptation of Christ BD - The Last Temptation of Christ, by Martin Scorsese, is a towering achievement. Though it initially engendered enormous controversy, the film can now be viewed as the remarkable, profoundly personal work of faith that it is. This fifteen-year labor of love, an adaptation of Nikos Kazantzakis’s landmark novel that imagines an alternate fate for Jesus Christ, features outstanding performances by Willem Dafoe, Barbara Hershey, Harvey Keitel, Harry Dean Stanton, and David Bowie; bold cinematography by the great Michael Ballhaus; and a transcendent score by Peter Gabriel. Blu-ray Release Date: March 12th, 2012

The Woman With the Five Elephants - A revelatory investigation into language, meaning and the tides of history, The Woman with the Five Elephants unravels the mystery behind the life and work of Svetlana Geier, the world’s greatest translator of Russian literature. Geier’s renown stems from her groundbreaking translations of Dostoevsky’s five great novels – referred to as the five elephants. But her great success has come with its share of loss. Born in Ukraine in 1923, she witnessed first-hand the impact of Stalin’s purges. As a young girl, she watched Nazi forces occupy her country and execute 30,000 Jews. It was her unique gift for languages that ultimately saved her. But it forced her to make a choice that forever altered her life. DVD Release Date: February 21st, 2012

Evidence - EVIDENCE starts off like your average "found footage" horror movie, but the filmmakers seem aware of the over-familiarity of the concept and spike the dialogue with some suggestive throw-away lines. The strange sounds in the woods bit is business as usual, as are the "running with the camera when any sane person would have ditched it" in favor of survival (actually, it seems to be a rule here that whoever relinquishes the camera is likely the next victim). The film does take a surprising turn in its final act that enlarges the scope of the story (although the technical aspects and aesthetics of this part are no different from what you would encounter in like-budgeted more conventionally-filmed examples). EVIDENCE hasn't re-invented the "found footage" film, but it admirably attempts to keep complacent fans on their toes. DVD Release Date: March 12th, 2012

Peepli [LIVE] - Although fairly epic in scope, PEEPLI [LIVE] will not be what international audiences are expecting of a Bollywood film. The songs are few and far between, and there are no elaborately choreographed numbers. The broader elements of comedy clash with the more understated, and some very pointed social and political commentary sometimes gets lost among the more obvious skewering of ravenous television news media (the reporter psychoanalyzing the varied hues of Nathas' feces after his disappearance falls somewhere in between, but Salim's idea of a "Nathas card" to give aid to families of famers "desiring to commit suicide" that passes on the question of how to fund it to the state governments is politics as usual). With so many characters, relationships are bound to suffer, so we really get little sense of the whys of the enmity between Nathas and his wife, Budhia and Nathas' wife, and the subplot attraction between Nandita and Rakesh (and Rakesh' souring journalistic ambition) is so sparsely addressed that details of the cynical ending might not be clear to viewers the first time around. Technical credits are top notch with striking cinematography, detailed sets, colorful costumes, rich music and sound design. Producer Aamir Khan's previous international success was the Academy Award-nominated LAGAAN (2001). DVD Release Date: January 31st, 2011

The Deer Hunter BD - Looking at “The Deer Hunter” as a whole, it has many scenes or sequences, which one can pick out and dwell upon or talk endlessly in enthusiasm, like grandeur of the wedding sequence, the Widerbergian drop of wine on the wedding dress, the close-ups of de Niro hunting, the fragility of Streep, despite that most would pick the “I love you baby” scene as their favourite. “Deer Hunter” is a film with so much detail in each scene and every scenic detail, that it steals our attention. It is larger than any single statement about how great its direction, cinematography, acting and storytelling is, as each element enriches the other. It is a film that with time has unfolded its greatness to become one of the greatest American films ever made. Blu-ray Release Date: March 6th, 2012

To Catch a Thief BD - One of the most lightweight (and not even particularly deceptively so) of Hitchcock's comedy-thrillers; a retreat from the implications of Rear Window into the realm of private jokes and sunny innuendo, with a Côte d'Azur romance that hinges on Kelly's testing of retired high-line thief Grant, to find whether 'The Cat' has indeed been neutered or is still able to prowl the Riviera rooftops. Even determined analysts Rohmer and Chabrol had to take comfort in celebrating Hitch's 'flowers of rhetoric': the famous image of the cigarette stubbed out in an egg, and the cheeky cliché of cross-cutting foreplay and fireworks. Blu-ray Release Date: March 6th, 2012

The Spiders - Fritz Lang's Spiders is about the adventures of high-society adventurer Kay Hoog (Carl de Vogt, whose gaunt, expressionless face resembles a younger William S. Hart) and his arch nemesis, a secret criminal organization known as the Spiders. Part 1 (''The Golden Lake'') is a treasure hunt that takes both Kay and Spiders mastermind Lio Sha (Ressel Orla) to Peru, where they battle primitive Incas (who capture Lio for a human sacrifice) and each other for a fortune in hidden gold. Part 2 (''The Diamond Ship'') is a longer and far more intricate conspiracy involving a hidden criminal underground beneath the streets of Chinatown, a legendary lost jewel known as the Buddha Head Diamond, and an ambitious plot to rule all of Asia. Full of secret passages, coded messages, treasure maps, double-crosses, and death-defying escapes, Lang's pulpy action-fantasy borrows from the wacky serials of Louis Feuillaude (notably the deliriously entertaining Les Vampires). But behind the wild plots, gorgeous sets, and driving, breakneck-paced direction lies a dark undercurrent of death and doom that transforms his gallant hero into a brooding, vengeful spirit.
