ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I was pretty blown-away by Tower this week on Kino Blu-ray. It combines archival footage with rotoscopic animation documenting events at the University of Texas Tower in 1966. One of my favorite French films, Leos Carax's The Lovers on the Bridge get the Blu-ray treatment - a magical film in the best home theatre presentation available. Richard Fleischer's powerful true crime expose Compulsion gets a 4K restoration Blu-ray from Kino, more or less, mimicking the existing Signal One release. Warner Archive give the fans Billy Wilder's Love in the Afternoon a Blu-ray edition - delightful. I loved revisiting Freddie Francis' The Skull with Lee and Cushing on Kino Blu-ray - rich, Amicus horror charm. Karl Hartl's Gold sparks German expressionism and Lang on Blu-ray - still a good story and film in its own right. Alejandro Jodorowsky gives us more visual eye-candy biography in Endless Poetry - on Blu-ray from the UK - it's more mesmerizing work from the director. Don Siegel's thriller Edge of Eternity also looks so impressive on Blu-ray - thank to Twilight Time. Chilly Scenes of Winter is fondly remembered as an realistic love story - now available on Blu-ray. The Man Who Could Cheat Death is a Hammerific entry about seeking mortality - on Blu-ray from Kino as is the clunky September Storm that has the cache of being in 3-D for fans of the process. Two vintage romance melodramas involving blindness and amnesia are reviewed on Universal Vault Series DVDs. And Now Tomorrow has Alan Ladd, Loretta Young and Susan Hayward - while Love Letters stars Jennifer Jones and Joseph Cotten. Both premium examples of their genre. Lastly thanks to our friend Per-Olof for identifying anomalies in the UK SD transfer of Bela Tarr's Autumn Almanac

  THIS WEEK's REVIEWS / COMPARISONS
 

Tower BD - August 1st 1966 was the day our innocence was shattered. A sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the iconic University of Texas Tower and opened re, holding the campus hostage for 96 minutes in what was a previously unimaginable event. Based entirely on first person testimonies from witnesses, heroes, and survivors, TOWER combines archival footage with rotoscopic animation of the dramatic day in a seamless and suspenseful retelling of the unfolding tragedy. The film highlights the fear, confusion, and visceral realities that changed the lives of those present, and the rest of us, forever a day when the worst in one man brought out the best in so many others. Blu-ray Release date: March 21st, 2017

September Storm BD - A rediscovered gem newly restored by the 3-D Film Archive, September Storm is a CinemaScope Stereovision adventure that plunges the viewer into the depths of the Balearic Sea, off the coast of Spain. Mark Stevens stars as a treasure-hunter who convinces a yacht hand (Asher Dann) to take him and his cohort (Robert Strauss) on a quest for gold doubloons. They encounter many spectacles along the way: a violent storm, man-eating sharks, a deadly man o' war, but perhaps the most stunning sight of all is the bewitching model (Joanne Dru) who embarks on the journey with them. Blu-ray Release date: March 28th, 2017

The Skull BD - Peter Cushing stars as Dr. Christopher Maitland, a writer and collector of occult items (with a preference for those with a somewhat macabre history), who is offered the chance to purchase a highly expensive and unusual item the skull of the Marquis de Sade. Warned against obtaining the item by fellow collector (Christopher Lee in a rare non-villainous role), the skull s influence draws Maitland in, madness and death soon follow... Kino Blu-ray Release date: March 14th, 2017

The Man Who Could Cheat Death BD - Dr. Georges Bonnet has figured out a way to live forever. All he needs are the glands of some very unwilling donors! Anton Diffring stars as the mad doctor in this chilling Hammer Horror classic. As he struggles against the inevitable icy grip of death, the doctor begins a descent into madness that threatens to destroy the laws of nature and the lives of those he lusts after. It's up to horror legend Christopher Lee to stop his unholy quest before it takes a final deadly turn! Kino Blu-ray Release date: March 14th, 2017

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. Kino Blu-ray Release Date: March 7th, 2017

The Lovers on the Bridge BD - Unhindered by intellectual concerns, Les Amants is a purely instinctive act of filmmaking. Transfixed by the sublime (and skirting dangerously close to the ridiculous), the movie betrays a belief in cinema as a purely visceral medium. The apotheosis of Carax's heedless approach is a jaw-dropping Bastille Day set piece: the two lovers dance, scream, and cavort against a backdrop of fireworks and a cacophony of rap, classical, and dance music. It's a defining moment in Carax's canon, and, some might argue, a high that the movie never fully recovers from. For all its flaws, this unabashedly whimsical movie sustains, if unevenly, its exuberant vision. Reckless, excessive, and seized of millennial delirium, Carax's valentine to Paris may be remembered as one of the epochal movies of 1990s world cinema. Blu-ray Release Date: March 14th, 2017

Love in the Afternoon BD - She plays the cello. He plays the field. She’s coltishly young. He’s worldly and mature. Lovestruck conservatory student Ariane knows she’s not like millionaire American playboy Frank Flanagan. But if she pretends to be just as much a cosmopolitan lover as he is, maybe the magic of l’amour will take hold. May-December romance is in bloom when Billy Wilder directs and Audrey Hepburn and Gary Cooper meet for Love in the Afternoon. Laughs, Parisian settings, champagne elegance – Wilder, in his first collaboration with long-time cowriter I.A.L. Diamond, delivers them all in a soufflé-light homage to his filmmaking idol Ernst Lubitsch, punctuating it by casting Lubitsch alumnus Maurice Chevalier, the cinema’s ambassador of Gallic charm who smoothly plays Ariane’s detective father. Blu-ray Release date: February 7th, 2017

Chilly Scenes of Winter BD - In writer-director Joan Micklin Silver’s endearing adaptation of Ann Beattie’s celebrated novel, Chilly Scenes of Winter (1979), Charles (John Heard), a bored office worker, falls in love with Laura (Mary Beth Hurt) when she is separated from her husband, Ox (Mark Metcalf); when she returns to the appropriately named fellow, Charles makes it his life’s work to get her back, aided, abetted, and occasionally hindered by a sensational cast of eccentric friends and relatives, played by the likes of Peter Riegert, Kenneth McMillan, Nora Heflin, and the great Gloria Grahame. Blu-ray Release date: February, 2017

Gold BD - A rare science fiction film made in National Socialist Germany, Karl Hartl's GOLD is a high-tech thriller dramatizing the ongoing war between scientific progress and corporate greed (resurrecting some of the themes and spectacle of Fritz Lang's Metropolis). Hans Albers stars as Professor Holk, an idealistic scientist developing the process of atomic fracturing, constructing an enormous electrical device to transform common lead into gold. When the operation is sabotaged by corporate rivals, resulting in the death of Holk's mentor (Friedrich Kayssler), Holk must accept the backing of a ruthless English businessman, John Wills (Michael Bohnen), whose interest in atomic fracturing is purely economic. Blu-ray Release date: June 14th, 2016

Edge of Eternity BD - Thrillingly shot in Cinemascope in and around the Grand Canyon, director Don Siegel’s actioner Edge of Eternity (1959) stars Cornel Wilde as a hard-jawed deputy with a past, suddenly dealing with a plague of murders. There’s mystery, there’s romance (Victoria Shaw is the tough, attractive woman with whom Wilde teams), and above all there are thrills, including a climax shot by legendary cinematographer Burnett Guffey to rival any cliffhanger ever put on screen. Daniele Amfitheatrof’s score – available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track – provides heightened suspense. Blu-ray Release date: February, 2017

Endless Poetry BD - With this second volume of cinematic autobiography, 87-year-old Chilean maverick filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky delivers a moving testimony on the relationship between an oppressive father and the creative temperament. For a director who’s delivered a career’s worth of weirdness – from
El Topo’ to ‘Santa Sangre– it’s a surprise to see something with such universal appeal, requiring no prior knowledge of the Jodorowsky back catalogue. Blu-ray Release date: March 6th, 2017

Love Letters - Starring Jennifer Jones and Joseph Cotten, Love Letters is a romantic mystery about a lovely, trusting young woman who suffers from amnesia after her husband’s violent death. During World War II, Roger Morland (Robert Scully) persuades his friend Alan Quinton (Joseph Cotton) to write passionate love letters to Victoria Remington (Jones). Believing that Roger is the author of the letters, she marries him. Roger’s deception sets in motion a dire chain of events that locks Victoria in a world of fear and clouded memories. So begins a tale of intrigue, love and suspense, as Alan returns home in search of Victoria, the woman he loves. Once he finds her, can he risk driving her over the edge with the knowledge of her past life? Nominated for 4 Academy Awards including Best Actress, this gripping thriller is an unforgettable romance/murder mystery that both touches the heart and teases the mind. DVD Release Date: November 21st, 2014

Autumn Almanac - In his first three films Bela Tarr--conceivably the most important Eastern European filmmaker currently working--betrays an impatience with cinematic style, focusing almost exclusively on content, but that tendency was radically overturned with this 1984 feature, whose taste and intelligence are specifically (and exquisitely) cinematic and revealed Tarr as a master stylist. Set entirely in an apartment inhabited by an elderly woman, her son, his former teacher, the old woman's nurse, and the nurse's lover, the film consists mainly of intense two-part dialogues and encounters largely concerned with the old woman's money. The remarkable use of color depends on a lighting scheme that divides most areas (and characters) into blue and orange, and the elaborately choreographed mise en scene is consistently inventive and unpredictable, making use of highly unorthodox angles and very slow camera movements. Artificial Eye DVD Release Date: Mar 14th 2016

And Now Tomorrow - Alan Ladd, Loretta Young and Susan Hayward star in this powerful love story And Now Tomorrow about one woman’s extraordinary struggle over adversity. Emily Blair (Young) seems to have it all: money, prestige and independence. However, when her sense of hearing fades, her only hope lies with the young and determined Dr. Marek Vance (Ladd). As they search for a cure to her condition, hope gives way to unexpected romance in this screenplay co-written by famed detective novelist Raymond Chandler and featuring stunning costumes by Edith Head. DVD Release Date: March 3rd, 2016
