ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): The focus this week were centered around three Warner Archive releases of immensely desirable films; Howard Hawks' The Big Sleep, John Huston's Key Largo and Alfred Hitchcock's I Confess. Each looking film-like and impressive on Blu-ray - a notable step beyond the old, but competent, DVD transfer. Also immersed in, or flirting with, the dark cinema we have some new Twilight Time Blu-ray releases. I could watch Otto Preminger's Where the Sidewalk Ends or Fritz Lang's The Big Heat Noir essentials around the clock - so good to have quality releases. How did it take so long to mention Vittorio De Sica's Bicycle Thieves on Blu-ray from Criterion! or one of the most stylish Giallos, Lucio Fulci's A Lizards in a Woman's Skin from Mondo Macabro's Blu-ray release or the 4K restoration of Richard Fleischer's Compulsion of the two Blu-rays releases of Ken Russell's Valentino? or Kino Lorber's attractive, vintage, 3D-capable edition of Gog - a beautiful looking restoration from that unique-niche 50's era. Giallo fans get another Blu-ray this week with, Ferruccio Casapinta's The Doll of Satan with its castle-heavy atmosphere, sexy gals and gothic-leaning horror elements. I wasn't gushing over Roger Corman's counter-cultural comedy Gas-s-s-s but others might see a nostalgic value. On DVD Eric reviewed five SD releases; The Summer of Sangaile - a highly regarded, new, European romance, Backtrack - an Australian mystery-thriller, Slow Learners - a US comedy, You're Killing Me - a gay, mixed genre comedy, horror, romance and Mythica: A Quest For Heroes - a sc-ifi piece with wizards and ogres...

Quote for today: “A boy's best friend is his mother." - Psycho    

Have a sublime week! - Gary


A Lizards in a Woman's Skin BD - Carol Hammond, the frustrated wife of a successful London lawyer, is having bizarre, erotic dreams about her uninhibited neighbor, Julia Durer, who presides over noisy, sex and drug filled parties in the house next door. One night, Carol's dreams culminate in violent death and she wakes to find her nightmares have become reality - Julia has been murdered and Carol is the main suspect. This frightening discovery is just the beginning of a labyrinthine psycho sexual shocker which takes the viewer on a wild ride through a series of frequently breathtaking set pieces that set new standards for the Italian thriller. Blu-ray Release Date: February 9th, 2016

Compulsion BD - Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Best Actor Award for all three of its stars (Stockwell, Dillman and Welles), Richard Fleischer's stylish and compelling thriller sees two law students murder a young boy in cold blood to prove their intellectual superiority. Sadistic bully Artie Straus (Bradford Dillman) and timid introvert Judd Steiner (Dean Stockwell) commit the 'perfect crime', but their arrogance leads to their arrest. Loosely based on the notorious 1924 murder trial of thrill-killers Leopold and Loeb, this outstanding film also features cinema legend Orson Welles as the criminal defence lawyer who takes on their case. Blu-ray Release Date: February 29th, 2016

Valentino BD - One of flamboyant director Ken Russell's more accessible biopics, Valentino is not totally successful but has several moments that are unforgettable. Among these are a horrifying jail sequence which takes advantage of the director's uncanny ability to capture grotesque cruelty; an explicitly sensual almost-seduction in a faux desert setting; and a powerful (and painful) climactic boxing scene. There are also a number of the director's trademark over-the-top visual flourishes, such as Leslie Caron's entrance as she comes to view Valentino's body; like most such moments, it's ultimately distracting and goes on too long to make the desired contribution to the film, but it's impressive nonetheless. BFI Blu-ray Release Date: February 29th, 2016

Gog BD - A baffling mystery is presented in the little Ivan Tors thriller called "Gog," now showing at the Palace with eight acts of vaudeville. It is this: Who or what is sabotaging the scientific experiments being made in preparation for launching an outer-space station at a secret underground laboratory in New Mexico? Blu-ray Release date: March 1st, 2016

Where the Sidewalk Ends BD - Dana Andrews is brutal metropolitan police detective Dixon, who despises all criminals because his father had been one. When the cops pick up two-bit gambler Ken Paine (Craig Stevens) as a murder suspect, Dixon subjects Paine to the third degree -- and accidentally kills him. In disposing of the body, Dixon inadvertently places the blame for the killing on cab driver Jiggs Taylor (Tom Tully). Having fallen in love with Jigg's daughter, Morgan (Gene Tierney), Dixon tries to clear the cabbie without implicating himself, but ultimately he becomes trapped in a web of his own making; luckily Morgan promises to stand by him. Where the Sidewalk Ends was adapted from a novel by William L. Stuart; its director was Otto Preminger, who'd previously put Andrews and Tierney through their paces in Laura (1944). Blu-ray Release Date: February, 2016

I Confess BD - Otto Kellar (O.E. Hasse) and his wife Alma (Dolly Hass) work as caretaker/gardner and housekeeper at a Catholic church in Canada. In the act of robbing a house where he occasionally gardens, Otto is surprised and inadvertently murders the owner. Torn with feelings of guilt and shame, he confesses to Father Michael William Logan (Montgomery Clift) back at the church. Police investigators don't look to Otto, instead begin to suspect Father Logan as he devoutly refuses to reveal what he has been told in the confessional. Blu-ray Release Date: February 16th, 2016

Key Largo BD - A hurricane swells outside, but it’s nothing compared to the storm within the hotel at Key Largo. There, sadistic mobster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson) holes up – and holds at gunpoint hotel owner Nora Temple (Lauren Bacall), her invalid father-in-law (Lionel Barrymore) and ex-GI Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart). McCloud’s the one man capable of standing up against the belligerent Rocco. But the postwar world’s realities may have taken all the fight out of him. John Huston cowrote and compellingly directs this fi lm of Maxwell Anderson’s 1939 play with a searing Academy Award-winning* performance by Claire Trevor as Rocco’s gold-hearted, boozy moll. In Huston’s hands, it becomes a powerful, sweltering classic. Blu-ray Release Date: February 23rd, 2016

The Big Sleep BD - L.A. private eye Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) takes on a blackmail case…and follows a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues, the spoiled rich and more. Raymond Chandler’s legendary gumshoe solves it in hard-boiled style – and style is what The Big Sleep is all about. Director Howard Hawks serves up snappy character encounters (particularly those of Bogart and Lauren Bacall), brisk pace and atmosphere galore. Blu-ray Release Date: February 23rd, 2016

Bicycle Thieves BD - Hailed around the world as one of the greatest movies ever made, Vittorio De Sica's Academy Award-winning Bicycle Thieves (Ladri di biciclette) defined an era in cinema. In postwar, poverty-stricken Rome, a man, hoping to support his desperate family with a new job, loses his bicycle, his main means of transportation for work. With his wide-eyed young son in tow, he sets off to track down the thief. Simple in construction and dazzlingly rich in human insight, Bicycle Thieves embodied all the greatest strengths of the neorealist film movement in Italy: emotional clarity, social righteousness, and brutal honesty. Blu-ray Release Date: March 29th, 2016

The Doll of Satan BD - Similar to 1967's Assassino Senza Volto in its melding of classical Gothic trappings with the giallo thriller elements just coming into renewed vogue, this castle-set horror mystery from Italian filmmaker Ferruccio Casapinta benefits from a slicker look and a better sense of humor. Casapinta lays on the atmosphere thick and heavy, with thunderstorms, howling wolves, and a Hammer Films-inspired score by Franco Potenza to heighten the mood. It all seems a bit overwrought, but fans of Italian horror don't come to it for subtlety. Indeed, the nearly operatic histrionics on display are immensely enjoyable, for their camp value if nothing else. Blu-ray Release Date: February 23rd, 2016

Gas-s-s-s BD - They used to say "don't trust anyone over 30," but there's no one over 30 left to distrust in this loosely plotted satirical comedy directed by Roger Corman. During the opening ceremonies for a chemical and biological weapons facility in Alaska, an experimental gas is accidentally released which has an unusual effect -- it rapidly advances the aging process of those over 25, while those under 25 are left untouched. Soon, the world's elders are dead, with the planet left to the youth. Blu-ray Release date: January 4th, 2015

The Big Heat BD - Ruthless criminals, a dedicated honest cop, sultry women and a gripping plot - all the elements of a classic police action-drama are here in full force. Police Sergeant Bannion (Glenn Ford) is investigating the apparent suicide of a corrupt cop, then is suddenly ordered to stop - and The Big Heat is on. Driven to unravel the mystery, Bannion continues probing until an explosion meant for him, kills his wife. He resigns from the force and soon learns that behind it all is the powerful underworld led by Mike Lagana (Alexander Scourby) and his cold-blooded henchman, Vince Stone (Lee Marvin). When Stone's girl Debby (Gloria Grahame) makes a play for Bannion, Stone disfigures her face. In revenge, she tells all she knows. Ultimately, Bannion and Stone square off in a life-or-death confrontation. Blu-ray Release Date: February, 2016

Backtrack - Psychologist Peter Bower's (Adrien Brody) life is thrown into turmoil when he discovers that the patients he has been seeing are the ghosts of people who died twenty years ago. Risking his own sanity, Peter delves into his past to uncover a terrifying secret which only he can put right. Backtrack is a spine-chilling story from the acclaimed writer-director, Michael Petroni. DVD Release Date: March 14th, 2016

The Summer of Sangaile - Seventeen-year-old Sangaile (Julija Steponaityte) lives a rather joyless existence as the daughter of an oblivious father and a hypercritical former ballerina mother. Her sole fascination are the stunt planes - flown by real-life Lithuanian aerobic pilot Jurgis Kairys at the air show in the village near the family's summer villa - but she suffers from crippling vertigo. Sangaile catches the eye of waitress/hopeful dress designer Auste (Aiste Dirziute) and she tries to draw the morose girl out of her isolation in a series of "games" of dress-up as Sangaile models her clothes. Auste's sympathetic reaction to Sangaile's secret leads to a greater intimacy that isolates the two of them in their games for a short time; but the two have decisions to make about their own lives once the summer ends. Auste wants to go to school and make a career out of her designs and Sangaile undertakes a series of near-suicidal attempts to cure herself of her vertigo. DVD Release Date: February 23rd, 2016

You're Killing Me - A gay mixture of DEXTER and GILMORE GIRLS blending witty banter, pop culture references and good old-fashioned murder! George, a narcissistic wannabe internet star, starts dating Joe, a monotone serial killer. While all of George s friends agree that Joe seems a bit strange, George claims his new beau is not scary, he is gorgeous.But as George s friends start to disappear, the remaining group decides to take matters into their own hands. DVD Release Date: March 8th, 2016

Slow Learners - Jeff and Anne, two close friends and co-workers who are embarrassingly unlucky at love, hatch a plan to transform themselves over the course of a sex-and-alcohol-fueled summer into the cool, confident people they aspire to be. What starts an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery turns into a laugh-out-loud experiment as Jeff and Anne progressively lose their identities, their dignity, and quite possibly each other. Co-directed by Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce (The Art of the Steal, Last Days Here), SLOW LEARNERS is an alternately raunchy and sweet look at love and the crazy things people will do to find it. DVD Release Date: December 15th, 2015

Mythica - Stuck in a life of indentured servitude, Marek dreams of becoming a wizard. When she meets a beautiful priestess, Teela, in need of help, Marek escapes her master and puts together a team of adventurers - including Thane the Warrior and Deagen the Thief - and embarks on an epic quest to free Teela's sister from a vicious ogre. DVD Release Date: November 10th, 2015
