ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Many great films this week but we'll, justly, give top spot to Errol Morris' masterpiece The Thin Blue Line - one of the greatest (if not the greatest) documentary's ever made - now on Criterion Blu-ray. A favorite Woody Allen film is Love and Death and Twilight Time's new Blu-ray is leaps and bounds ahead of the old, out-of-print, DVD. Tsai Ming-liang's Stray Dogs floored me and the new Cinema Guild Blu-ray looks and sounds marvelous. A highly recommended film. I was riveted by Foxcatcher - an intriguing, dark and unsuspecting effort with three superb lead performances - available on Sony Blu-ray. More Criterion must-own Blu-rays with Hoop Dreams - 'one of the great works of American nonfiction cinema' plus more from Master Morris with his first two works; Gates of Heaven/Vernon, Florida on one Blu-ray disc. Masters of Cinema's Blu-ray of Anthony Mann's excellent Wild-West/Greek Tragedy Man of the West is easily the best of all digital editions compared. It's the one to own. We have also compared the new Arrow Blu-ray to the MGM of John Frankenheimer's unnerving political thriller The Manchurian Candidate with the UK package winning in all categories. Also Arrow's Blu-ray of Dario Argento's classic Giallo blueprint for the gorified 80s; Tenebrae upgrading significantly from the six DVDs it is compared to. Stormy Weather is a marvelous musical retrospective of the great African American entertainers of the early 1900s and the Twilight Time Blu-ray trounces the old SD. Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps gets a competent a/v but bare-bones Blu-ray release out of Germany. On DVD this week, Eric reviewed the cultural clashing Love Me out of the Ukraine. Gregory covered three more 50's crime-related thrillers with Slander with Van Johnson and Ann Blyth, The Crooked Road (actually from the mid 60's) with Robert Ryan and Stewart Granger plus The Counterfeit Plan with Zachary Scott as a master-criminal and a desirous Peggie Castle. I reviewed Fritz Lang's lesser-seen American Guerrilla in the Philippines with Tyrone Power and Tom Ewell. There are people in hospital that would do anything for the opportunities you have today!


The 39 Steps BD - A heart-racing spy story by Alfred Hitchcock, The 39 Steps follows Richard Hannay (Robert Donat) as he stumbles upon a conspiracy that thrusts him into a hectic chase across the Scottish moors—a chase in which he is both the pursuer and the pursued—as well as into an unexpected romance with the cool Pamela (Madeline Carroll). Adapted from a novel by John Buchan, this classic wrong-man thriller from the Master of Suspense anticipates the director’s most famous works (especially North by Northwest), and remains one of his cleverest and most entertaining films. WME Blu-ray Release Date: January 30th, 2015

Gates of Heaven/Vernon, Florida BD - With his trademark mixture of empathy and scrutiny, Errol Morris has changed the face of documentary filmmaking in the United States, and his career began with two remarkable tales of American eccentricity: Gates of Heaven and Vernon, Florida. The first uses two Northern California pet cemeteries as the basis for a profound and funny rumination on love, loss, and industry; the second travels to a languorous southern backwater and discovers a handful of fascinating folks there—a determined turkey hunter, a curious minister, a laconic policeman—engaged in individualistic, sometimes absurd pursuits. Morris consistently creates humane portraits of true candor, and these early works remain two of his greatest and most provocative films. Blu-ray Release date: March 24th, 2015

Hoop Dreams BD - Two ordinary inner-city Chicago kids dare to reach for the impossible—professional basketball glory—in this epic chronicle of hope and faith. Filmed over a five-year period, Hoop Dreams, by Steve James, Frederick Marx, and Peter Gilbert, follows young Arthur Agee and William Gates and their families as the boys navigate the complex, competitive world of scholastic athletics while dealing with the intense pressures of their home lives and neighborhoods. This revelatory film continues to educate and inspire viewers, and it is widely considered one of the great works of American nonfiction cinema. Blu-ray Release Date: March 31st, 2015

Stray Dogs BD - A poverty-stricken father and his two young children try to survive in modern-day Taipei in yet another remarkable piece of cinema from the great Tsai Ming-liang. Tsai's oblique approach to space and time renders Stray Dogs an often mysterious work whose tactile and sodden images investigate the emotional boundaries of privation and deep loneliness. Blu-ray Release date: February 10th, 2015

Man of the West BD - The settings in Man of the West -- a western town, a train bound for Fort Worth, a farmhouse in a valley, a desert, and a ghost town (the latter two filmed in California's Red Rock Canyon) -- lack the formal purity of those in The Naked Spur. As a result, Man of the West veers much closer to the grimness of Greek tragedy, its mountains and rock formations often suggesting the silent witness of an ancient amphitheater. (The connection isn't accidental; another of Mann's late interviews is peppered with references to Oedipus Rex and Antigone, and one of his best early westerns is entitled The Furies.) Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Release Date: March 23rd, 2015

The Manchurian Candidate BD - Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey ), returns home from the Korean War and as a hero is presented with the Medal of Valor in Washington. His domineering mother (Angela Lansbury) and Stepfather Senator Iselin (James Gregory) wrestle to grab as much positive political coverage out of his heroics and name as possible. Major Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra) and others who served alongside him remember Shaw differently, however, in duplicated nightmares as a killer brainwashed by Dr Yen Lo, an evil hypnotist from Communist China (Khigh Dhiegh) with Russian top political brass looking on in an amphitheatre. Shaw's mother, Mrs. Iselin, playing a Joseph McCarthy representation, is revealed to be a calculating Communist Agent and her maneuvering is meant to position her husband to the presidency through assassination, with her son being the mentally manipulated hired gun. Arrow Blu-ray Release Date: February 23rd, 2015

Foxcatcher BD - Foxcatcher is a psychological drama directed by Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller (Moneyball) and starring Golden Globe winner Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Academy Award nominee Mark Ruffalo, Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave and Sienna Miller. The film was written by E. Max Frye and Academy Award nominee Dan Futterman. Foxcatcher tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) and a life of poverty when he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Desperate to gain the respect of his disapproving mother, du Pont begins "coaching" a world-class athletic team and, in the process, lures Mark into dangerous habits, breaks his confidence and drives him into a self-destructive spiral. Based on actual events, Foxcatcher is a gripping and profoundly American story of fragile men who pinned their hopes for love and redemption on a desperate obsession for greatness that was to end in tragedy. Blu-ray Release date: March 3rd, 2015

The Thin Blue Line BD - Among the most important documentaries ever made, The Thin Blue Line, by Errol Morris, erases the border between art and activism. A work of meticulous journalism and gripping drama, it recounts the disturbing tale of Randall Dale Adams, a drifter who was charged with the murder of a Dallas police officer and sent to death row, despite evidence that he did not commit the crime. Incorporating stylized reenactments, penetrating interviews, and haunting original music by Philip Glass, Morris uses cinema to build a case forensically while effortlessly entertaining his viewers. The Thin Blue Line effected real-world change, proving film’s power beyond the shadow of a doubt. Blu-ray Release date: March 24th, 2015

Tenebrae BD - A hybrid horror, both thriller and slasher, not to mention chopper and shocker, this confirms what Suspiria and Inferno led one to suspect. When it comes to plotting, Argento is one hell of a basket weaver: with holes in his story big enough to sink credibility, he cheats and double-crosses like mad to conceal the killer's identity. Successful crime writer (Franciosa) arrives in Rome to promote his new book 'Tenebrae', an event which triggers off a trail of bloody murders in the manner described in his book. By the end, the entire cast save one has undergone savage cutting, something which would have benefited the film itself, which is unpleasant even by contemporary horror standards. It does confirm Argento's dedication to the technicalities of constructing images - Grand Guignol for L'Uomo Vogue, perhaps - but you'll still end up feeling you've left some vital digestive organs back in the seat. Blu-ray Release Date: January 19th, 2015

Stormy Weather BD - Stormy Weather (1943) is a groundbreaking musical featuring an astounding all-African-American cast, perhaps never matched for sheer brilliance. The film's slight show biz-based romance is really a pretext for some twenty musical numbers performed by the sterling likes of Lena Horne, Bill Robinson, Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, The Nicholas Brothers, and the Katherine Dunham dance troupe. The outstanding musical score is highlighted by Waller's performance of his own "Ain't Misbehavin'" and the classic title tune by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler, sung in barn-burning fashion by the inimitable Miss Horne. Blu-ray Release Date: February, 2015

Love and Death BD - Woody Allen takes on the monolith of Russian literature—with a bit of Ingmar Bergman thrown in for good measure—with Love and Death (1975), a deadpan costume epic set against the sweeping backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. Allen plays Boris, a philosophical coward who becomes an inadvertent war hero and then a potential assassin thanks to the encouragement of his mad(cap) wife, Sonja (the fab Diane Keaton). Shot by the great cinematographer Ghislain Cloquet (Tess, Au Hasard Balthazar). Blu-ray Release Date: February, 2015

American Guerrilla in the Philippines - The year is 1942. Ensign Chuck Palmer Tyrone Power is stranded in the Japanese-occupied Philippines after his ship is torpedoed. Linking up with several other American refugees, Palmer helps the Filipinos organize a resistance movement against the enemy. They even manage to construct a few jerry-built radio stations to keep tabs on Japanese fleet movements. Hard to believe that Palmer finds romance under these trying circumstances, but he does, in the form of Jeanne Martinez Micheline Presle, the wife of a Filipino war hero. Based on the novel by Ira Wolfert, American Guerilla in the Philippines is directed with unvarnished efficiency by Fritz Lang. Standouts in the supporting cast include Tom Ewell as Tyrone Power's wisecracking buddy and Robert Barrat as General Douglas MacArthur. DVD Release Date: August 6th, 2013

The Counterfeit Plan - Filmed in England, The Counterfeit Plan was distributed in the US by Warner Bros. Zachary Scott is right in his element as Max, a sociopathic killer who sets up a counterfeiting ring in the home of country squire Louie Mervyn Johns. Max forces Louie to participate in his racket by threatening to expose the latter's previous life as a forger. When Louie's daughter Carol Peggie Castle arrives for a visit, it's the beginning of the end for the coldly conniving Max. Halfway down the cast list of Counterfeit Plan is Lee Patterson, later a regular on the TV soaper One Life to Live. DVD Release Date: June 17th, 2014

The Crooked Road - Robert Ryan and Stewart Granger clash over a secret too dangerous to keep in The Crooked Road, a breathless tale of corruption and intrigue based on the novel by Morris L. West. It's been 10 years since the Duke of Orgagna (Stewart Granger) married the woman (Nadia Gray) they both loved. and now journalist Richard Ashley (Robert Ryan) is about to have his revenge. Days away from publishing an expose that will topple the Balkan leader, all Ashley needs are photostats of private letters that prove the Duke guilty of fraud. When his contact is murdered and Orgagna frames him for the crime, Ashley must locate the documents before the Duke decides to kill the story by killing the reporter. DVD Release Date: June 17th, 2014

Slander - A ruthless publisher uses his scandal sheet to profit at the expense of others in this searing expose of tabloid journalism starring Van Johnson, Ann Blyth and Steve Cochran. After years of struggle, puppeteer Scott Martin (Johnson) becomes an overnight sensation as the hero of a children's TV show. So when tabloid publisher H.R. Manley (Cochran) threatens to expose Martin's criminal past in Real Truth magazine, he offers to kill the story in exchange for dirt on Mary Sawyer, an old childhood friend, now a famous movie star. Pushed by his distraught wife (Blyth) to make the deal, a conscious-stricken Martin is forced to choose whose career to destroy just to boost Manley's flagging circulation. Based on a teleplay broadcast on the 19505 TV anthology series Studio One, Slander is a still-relevant look at the personal damage and heartbreak caused by the tabloid industry's relentless pursuit of "the truth." DVD Release Date: June 17th, 2014

Love Me - Sasha is an attractive young Ukranian woman who finally decides to end her dead-end relationship with a married man. Cemal, bound by tradition to marry a girl he has never met, is dragged by his uncle and cousin from Turkey to Kiev for a decadent bachelor party. When their paths cross at a nightclub, everything changes for these two lost souls. Sasha, who dreams of having a child, sees a one-night stand who she can use to get pregnant. Cemal is immediately drawn to her confident independence, so unlike the women back home. Despite the cross cultural barriers, the chemistry between them is undeniable, soon blossoming into the deep emotional experience of true love. DVD Release Date: February 24th, 2015
