ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Masters of Cinema's Antonioni films-to-Blu-ray; La Signora Senza Camelie and Le Amiche - are my number one picks this week. I strongly suggest both - although it may make you impatient for more from the director to 1080P. Not far behind in heavy praise is Criterion's Blu-ray of Louis Malle's Au Revoir Les Enfants - a very easy recommendation. Boorman's atmospheric and Arthurian Excalibur won't ever look or sound better for home theater enthusiasts. The, English un-friendly, French Blu-ray edition of Rififi only whets the appetite for the upcoming UK edition. Wahlberg and Bale in The Fighter make for a very entertaining night as does both Russell Crowe in The Next Three Days and Matt Damon in Hereafter - your popcorn maker will be working overtime. The documentary on the 2008 financial crisis examines the event in great detail, to the viewer's aggravated awareness, in Inside Job - the 2010 Oscar winner for that genre. Also nominated in that category was Banksy's Exit Through the Gift Shop now available via Oscilloscope's Blu-ray. The South Korean crime-thriller The Man From Nowhere is, justifiably, highly lauded and I never tire of John Carpenter's They Live with Rowdy Roddy. On DVD we get an unforgettable Holocaust documentary entitled A Film Unfinished that we highly recommend - as we do the Finnish film Letters to Father Jacob. I'm envious that Gregory has a copy of the out-of-print, Bette Davis, Noir essential Another Man's Poison. Olive Films provide us with two older Hollywood comedies with mainstays Bob Hope in Off Limits with Mickey Rooney and, the loveable, Danny Kaye in On the Double. I was less-impacted by Rivette's Around a Small Mountain but can far easily dismiss Bazaar Bizarre. Eric gives us an overview of the under-appreciated horror film, Damned By Dawn..


Off Limits - OFF LIMITS is the first and only teaming of comedy legends Bob Hope and Mickey Rooney. Bob Hope plays a boxing trainer who loses his one and only champion to the draft and decides to enlist, so he could keep an eye on his prized fighter. He is left holding the laces when his boxer is discharged – until enlisted private and amateur boxer Herbert Tuttle (Mickey Rooney) asks Bob to train him. Bob is more interested in Tuttle’s aunt (Marilyn Maxwell) than actually training the young contender. This screwball comedy was directed by George Marshall (Fancy Pants). DVD Release Date: March 8th, 2011

Exit Through the Gift Shop BD - Like the encyclopedia-writing infinite number of monkeys, Guetta stumbles into L.A.’s developing graffiti artistic vandals. He follows them about, some more than others, like “Space Invader” and the soon to famous Shepard Fairey. The more he learns about the phenomenon, the more he obsesses about the one artist missing from his catalogue, the brilliant and secretive “Banksy”. When Banksy visits L.A., Guetta finds his way to him quite by chance and soon makes himself indispensable, showing him the “best walls” in town to display his work. Blu-ray Release Date: March 8th, 2011

Bazaar Bizarre - When Chris Bryson was discovered limping down a street in 1988 wearing only a dog collar, the horrifying acts of one Kansas City resident were exposed. Bob Berdella, a local fascinated by the occult, had been spending his off hours torturing, sodomizing and murdering young men. Follow true crime author James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential, The Black Dahlia) as he traces the history of Bob Berdella’s sordid crimes with interviews of Bryson, gruesome reenactments, and disturbing musical numbers. Revisit the horror and try to come out alive. DVD Release Date: March 8th, 2011

The Fighter BD - Mark Wahlberg stars in this inspirational docudrama that explores the remarkable rise of Massachusetts-born, junior welterweight title winner 'Irish' Micky Ward. A determined pugilist whose career in the ring was shepherded by his loyal half-brother, Dicky (Christian Bale) -- a hard-living boxer-turned-trainer whose own career in the ring was nearly sent down for the count due to drugs and crime -- perennial underdog Irish Micky rebounded from a disheartening series of defeats to win both the WBU Intercontinental Lightweight title and the WBU Light Welterweight title thanks to a fierce combination of determination and hard work. Blu-ray Release date: March 15th, 2011

The Next Three Days BD - Life seems perfect for John Brennan until his wife, Lara, is arrested for a murder she says she didn’t commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately risking everything for the woman he loves. Blu-ray Release date: March 8th, 2011

On the Double - Danny Kaye (Knock on Wood) headlines this wacky WWII comedy… he plays a timid American soldier who bears a striking resemblance to a famous British Colonel. The Military Intelligence decides to use the poor chap as a pawn and recruit the naive soldier to impersonate the legendary Colonel, who’s highly targeted by the Nazi assassins. Co-starring Dana Wynter as the Colonel’s suspicious wife, Diana Dors as the Colonel’s personal driver and mistress and Wilfrid Hyde White as the Colonel overseeing the mission. This zany action-comedy with classic Danny Kaye routines was directed by Melville Shavelson (The Five Pennies). DVD Release Date: March 8th, 2011

Excalibur BD - The legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table receives its most impressive screen treatment in Excalibur, from visionary director John Boorman (Deliverance, Hope and Glory). All the elements of Sir Thomas Malory’s classic Le Morte Darthur are here: Arthur (Nigel Terry) removing the sword Excalibur from the stone; the Round Table’s noble birth and tragic decline; the heroic attempts to recover the Holy Grail; and the shifting balance of power between wily wizard Merlin (Nicol Williamson) and evil sorceress Morgana (Helen Mirren). With Patrick Stewart, Gabriel Byrne and Liam Neeson in notable early screen roles. Blu-ray Release date: March 8th, 2011

Rififi BD - After making such American noir classics as The Naked City and Brute Force, blacklisted director Jules Dassin went to Paris and embarked on his masterpiece: a twisting, turning tale of four ex-cons who hatch one last glorious heist in the City of Lights. At once naturalistic and expressionistic, this melange of suspense, brutality, and dark humor was an international hit and earned Dassin the Best Director prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Blu-ray Release Date: February 22nd, 2011

The Man From Nowhere BD - Tae-shik (Won Bin) is an ex-special agent whose tragic past has made him distance himself from the world. He now lives in solitude and runs a small pawnshop. The only people he now sees are the few pawnshop customers and So-mi (Kim Sae-Ron), the young girl who lives next door. So-mi has also been neglected by the world and as she and Tae-shik begin to spend more time together, the two gradually open themselves to one another and become friends. Then one day, So-mi suddenly disappears. So-mi s mother becomes involved in a major crime causing both her and So-mi to get kidnapped. Tae-shik is drawn back out into the world in a frantic search for So-mi s whereabouts. In order to save So-mi, his one and only friend in this world, Tae-shik makes a certain arrangement with the crime mob. While So-mi is still nowhere to be found, the police begin to chase after Tae-shik. With the police and the underground mob close on his tail, Tae-shik continues his frantic search for So-mi and his hidden past slowly becomes revealed... Blu-ray Release date: March 8th, 2011

A Film Unfinished - At the end of WWII, 60 minutes of raw film, having sat undisturbed in an East German archive, was discovered. Shot by... the Nazis in Warsaw in May 1942, and labeled simply "Ghetto," this footage quickly became a resource for historians seeking an authentic record of the Warsaw Ghetto. However, the later discovery of a long-missing reel complicated earlier readings of the footage. "A Film Unfinished" presents the raw footage in its entirety, carefully noting fictionalized sequences (including a staged dinner party) falsely showing "the good life" enjoyed by Jewish urbanites, and probes deep into the making of a now-infamous Nazi propaganda film. DVD Release date: March 8th, 2011

Around a Small Mountain - "Around a Small Mountain" is a tale of lost love, chance encounters and the transformative power of art. On a winding... mountain road, Vittorio gallantly helps Kate, whose car has broken down, and speeds off never having spoken a word. Later in town, Vittorio learns that Kate has returned to join her family's travelling circus after leaving under mysterious conditions many years ago. Intrigued by her story, Vittorio stays for the show, and the next one, and little by little, is ingratiated into the circus and the lives of its performers -- all the while trying to discover the secret that led to Kate's sudden departure. DVD Release Date: March 8th, 2011

Another Man's Poison - Bette Davis pulls out all the stops as Janet Frobisher, a devious, selfish vixen who will stop at nothing to get what she wants in Another Man's Poison, a drama deliciously full of unexpected twists and turns. Frobisher is a rich mystery writer who falls in love with her secretary's fiancé and lures him away. But her happiness is far from ensured. She first must deal with a long forgotten ex-convict husband who tries to blackmail her, and then she must scheme her way out of the clutches of her husband's ruthless partner, George Bates (Gary Merrill, Davis's husband in real life). Davis proves why she remains such an acting legend as she dominates the screen in the kind of part that only she could bring to life so vividly. DVD Release Date: February 18th, 2000

Damned By Dawn - Claire (Renee Willner) and her boyfriend Paul (Danny Alder) travel to her remote family home to visit her ailing grandmother (Dawn Klingberg, TIL HUMAN VOICES WAKE US), who lives with her father Bill (Peter Stratford, BLOOD MONEY) and sister Jen (Taryn Eva). Claire wants to ask her grandmother about the mysterious urn that her grandmother sent her a month before. Her grandmother tells her that she expects to die soon and that she will be taken away by a woman who wails for the dying. That night, the family is woken by a howling sound in the woods. Paul, Bill, and Jen's boyfriend Simmo (Mark Taylor) go out into the woods in search of the sound (but only two come back). Momentum DVD Release Date: March 7th, 2011

Inside Job BD - From Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker, Charles Ferguson (NO END IN SIGHT), comes INSIDE JOB, the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia. Blu-ray Release date: March 8th, 2011

They Live BD - John Carpenter wrote and directed this science fiction thriller about a group of aliens who try to take over the world... by disguising themselves as Young Republicans. Wrestler Roddy Piper stars as John Nada, a drifted who makes his way into an immense encampment for the homeless. There he stumbles upon a conspiracy concerning aliens who have hypnotized the populace through subliminal messages transmitted through television, magazines, posters, and movies. When Nada looks through special Ray-Bans developed by the resistance leaders, the aliens lose their clean-cut Dan Quayle looks and resemble crusty-looking reptiles. Nada joins the underground, teaming up with rebel-leader Frank (Keith David) to eradicate the lizard-like aliens from the body politic. Blu-ray Release date: February 2nd, 2011

Hereafter BD - George (Matt Damon) is a blue-collar American with a special connection to the afterlife dating from his childhood. French journalist Marie (Cécile de France) has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when London schoolboy Marcus (Frankie and George McLaren) loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each seeking the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might – or must – exist in the hereafter. Blu-ray Release date: March 15th, 2011

Four Lions BD - A whip-smart, slapstick comedy, Chris Morris’ Four Lions takes aim at Jihadi suicide bombers and illuminates the war on terror through satire and farce. Follow five inept aspiring terrorists on their quest to strike a blow, and how they demonstrate that terrorism may be about ideology, but it can also be about idiots. Blu-ray Release date: March 8th, 2011

La Signora Senza Camelie BD - It’s the story of a shopclerk named Clara (played by the captivating Lucia Bosè, also of Antonioni’s brilliant debut feature, Cronaca di un amore) who finds a chance casting in a small movie role develop into a full-blown career as screen-siren. Tension erupts when her husband can no longer tolerate watching her frivolous cinema escapades, and pushes her into a “serious, artistic” production of the life of Joan of Arc… whereupon she is castigated by the critical establishment. Blu-ray Release date: March 21st, 2011

Le Amiche BD - A key film of Antonioni's middle-period, Le amiche [The Girlfriends] finds the Italian master expanding his palette in the realm of traditional narrative cinema by way of his powerhouse direction of an ensemble cast, while entrenching his devotion to expressing the emotional makeup of the modern woman. Clelia (Eleonora Rossi-Drago) embarks from Rome to set up a fashion-salon in Torino. Shortly after arrival, she finds herself caught up in the (melo)dramas of a bourgeoise circle of acquaintances (including the iconic Valentina Cortese), and their attendant attempts at suicide, their class prejudices, and the romantic alliances that threaten to transform the social clique into an emotional tar-pit. Le amiche represents the epitome of Antonioni's '50s period, and although it lays the groundwork for such '60s breakthroughs as L'avventura and La notte, it proves itself no less brilliant. Blu-ray Release Date: March 21st, 2011

Au Revoir Les Enfants BD - Au revoir les enfants tells a heartbreaking story of friendship and devastating loss between two boys living in Nazi-occupied France. At a provincial Catholic boarding school, the precocious youths enjoy true camaraderie—until a secret is revealed. Based on events from writer-director Malle’s own childhood, the film is a subtle, precisely observed tale of courage, cowardice, and tragic awakening. Blu-ray Release Date: March 15th, 2011

Letters to Father Jacob - Leila has just been pardoned after serving 12 years of a life sentence. Upon her release from prison she is offered... a job at a secluded parsonage as the personal assistant to the blind pastor Father Jacob, who's life's mission is to answer the letters of those who write asking for his help. Although she regards Father Jacob's correspondence as pointless, it ultimately plays a role in Leila's own redemption and self-forgiveness. DVD Release Date: March 8th, 2011
