ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Kenji Mizoguchi's Ugetsu Monogatori is such a triumph and thanks to the Masters of Cinema we have it on Blu-ray - it deserves first mention. I was amazed at the visual improvement of King Vidor's Pre-Code Bird of Paradise over the previous DVD. The same can be said for Bill Gunn's highly acclaimed Ganja & Hess in the revealing move to 1080P. Criterion's La Haine has improved the technical aspects of the previous Blu-ray transfer and while Being John Malkovich, a great film (Charlie Kaufman scripted!), doesn't shine as many may have suspected via Blu-ray. Europe is offering more and more in the new format with Bigas Luna's film-within-a-film Anguish, Lewis Milestone brilliant war drama Pork Chop Hill, and Andrew V. McLaglen devious western Bandolero! with James Stewart, Dean Martin and Raquel Welch. I enjoyed Jeremiah Johnson - the scenery on Blu-ray was quite spectacular. On DVD, Gregory 'found' the lost Film-Noir Shed No Tears. Fans of the cycle should consider to indulging despite the weak Alpha SD transfer. Staying Noirish - Bewitched is an intriguing dual-personality murder plot - worthy of consideration. Flesh and Fury also has a femme fatale in the guise of Jan Sterling. Radu Muntean's Tuesday, After Christmas by Second Run DVD in the UK is a wonderful, award-winning, film out of Romania. Eric covered the impressive The Theo Angelopoulos Collection Vol 3 with 4 strong films by the master-director. I thought Westward the Women was a beautifully-crafted western. The Saint Double Feature has two compact mysteries with the elusive Simon Templar. Bedevilled is a crime-drama with the sultry Anne Baxter. Strip, Strip Hooray offers six 50's L.A. burlesque shows. Eric also had time to cover Theatre Bizarre and its interesting premise - as well as the 90's horror Castle Freak. Enjoy the week!


Bedevilled - The suspense in Bedevilled turns out to be whether Steve Forrest will break the vow of celibacy he hasn't yet taken. (Maybe he was following in the footsteps of his brother Dana Andrews, who played a priest in Edge of Doom.) As an American off to Rome to study for Holy Orders, Forrest gets three days to kill in Paris. When his buddy Robert Christopher, nauseous after their bumpy transatlantic flight, takes to bed, Forrest decides to explore the city on his own. But, like nuns, those seminarians travel in pairs for good reason: They might run smack into Anne Baxter. DVD Release Date: February 28th, 2012

Flesh and Fury - Curtis (in the pouty fulsomeness of his young manhood) boxes for $25 purses when he catches the eye of Sterling, a bloodthirsty and avaricious ringside habitué. The only catch is that Curtis is deaf and dumb, but that suits Sterling just swell - his disability makes him more vulnerable to her control. She pushes his career forward too fast for the liking of his manager (Wallace Ford), but Curtis seems all but unstoppable. DVD Release Date: March 30th, 2009

Strip, Strip Hooray - These are comparative burlesque offerings complete with plenty of skits, amateurish sketches, harem dances, bumps & grinds, scantily clad cartwheels and handstands while chock-full of full of bawdy jokes. The features are basically film-ization of shows offered at seedy Los Angeles theatres. This is its own genre that was the pre-cursor to some of the 70's sexploitation and grindhouse flics - attempting to appeal to the more baser instincts. DVD Release Date: May 1st, 2012

Bewitched - Only Joan (Phyllis Thaxter) knows the real reason she fainted at her engagement party and suddenly deserts her fiancé, Bob (Henry H. Daniels, Jr.). It’s the command of the sinister, vengeful “Karen,” a terrifying alternate personality raging inside Joan who will ultimately direct her to kill. Not even the psychiatrist (Edmund Gwenn) who discovers her fate can stop the tormenting voice that controls Joan’s every move – forcing her to run, to hide, to plot and to murder. Writer/director Arch Oboler, who adapted his successful radio play into this shocking thriller, keeps the suspense taut and the action filled with unexpected twists as Joan’s murder trial unfolds before a mesmerized courtroom. DVD Release Date: May 3rd, 2012

Ganja & Hess BD - By no means is this a straightforward vampire film - the term is never uttered - it is a challenging, nonlinear, at times elliptical film that should have been recognized as a major accomplishment (it got rave reviews at Cannes). Instead, it was cut and shuffled into somewhat linear order (by film doctor Fima Noveck who also recut another artful vampire film Harry Kumel's DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS, Antonio Margheriti's WEB OF THE SPIDER, and Mauro Bolognini's THE INHERITANCE) and retitled BLOOD COUPLE, BLACKOUT - MOMENT OF TERROR, and DOUBLE POSSESSION for different markets. Blu-ray Release Date: May 8th, 2012

Westward the Women - They are rugged pioneers, Indian fighters and brave trailblazers who tame the wild west. These are the women of the great frontier - that's right - the women! Based on historical record, this wagon-train saga details a 2,000-mile journey from Chicago to California. The men seek gold; the women seek men. Both strike pay dirt! Buck Wyatt (Robert Taylor) is a tough, experienced scout who leads a wagon train comprised of two ex-show girls (Denise Darcel and Julie Bishop), a hearty widow (Hope Emerson) and fifteen men who act as guides. When one of the men disobeys Buck's orders not to fraternize with the ladies, Buck shoots him, causing the others to desert. Instead of turning back, the determined women insist on going on, learning to ride, shoot and drive mules. Although treacherous terrain and a deadly ambush lay ahead, these tough ladies are filled with the American frontier spirit, and nothing will stop them! DVD Release Date: May 10th, 2012

Anguish BD - John, a loutish optometrist orderly, louses up on the job and is dismissed. His odd, little mother, using a form of hypnosis, sends him out on a killing spree, starting with Caroline, the woman who caused his dismissal. But this is all just a movie titled "The Mommy" being shown to a small matinee crowd at a seedy movie theater in Los Angeles. As it happens, two teenage girls in the audience, the strong-willed Linda and the squeamish Patty, discover that one of the patrons sitting near them is a real maniac. In the old movie, when the scalpel-wielding John enters a movie theater and beings killing the patrons and theater employees one by one, and removing their eyeballs for his mother's collection, the killer in the audience, armed with a silenced .38 pistol, begins killing the patrons and employees of the theater in a manner which parallels the action on the movie screen. Blu-ray Release date: March 7th, 2012

Bandolero! BD - James Stewart and Dean Martin are atypically cast as outlaws in Bandolero! The film begins as Dee Bishop (Martin) and... his gang are about to be hanged. The Scripture-spouting executioner turns out to be Dee's brother Mace (Stewart), who helps the desperadoes escape. They are pursued by a sheriff (George Kennedy), whose lady friend (Raquel Welch) has the hots for Dee. The brothers try to go straight, but before they can make up their mind they find themselves surrounded by Mexican bandidos and are forced to team up with the sheriff to fight them off. Blu-ray Release date: February 14th, 2012

La Haine BD - Mathieu Kassovitz took the film world by storm with La haine, a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at the racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieue districts on Paris’s outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz (Vincent Cassel), Hubert (Hubert Koundé), and Saïd (Saïd Taghmaoui)—a Jew, an African, and an Arab—give human faces to France’s immigrant populations, their bristling resentment at their marginalization slowly simmering until it reaches a climactic boiling point. A work of tough beauty, La haine is a landmark of contemporary French cinema and a gripping reflection of its country’s ongoing identity crisis. Criterion Blu-ray Release Date: May 8th, 2012

Castle Freak - John Reilly (Jeffrey Combs RE-ANIMATOR), Susan (Barbara Crampton FROM BEYOND) and their daughter come face to face with terror when they travel to Italy to move into a castle they have inherited. They soon discover it is haunted by a relentlessly blood-thirsty creature. When mutilated bodies start turning up, John must uncover the Reilly family s dark secret to save his wife and child from the sadistic being.... DVD Release Date: 14 May 2012

Pork Chop Hill BD - Pork Chop Hill was based on the eyewitness essays of ex-soldier S. L. A. Marshall. The film is set during the Korean... "police action." While diplomats argue pointlessly over the shape of the negotiation tables at Panmunjon, United Nations troops bleed and die. Lieutenant Gregory Peck leads a 135-man unit on the attack of the Chinese-held Pork Chop Hill. When reinforcements finally arrive, only 25 of Peck's men survive (and they aren't the usual survivors we've come to expect from earlier, cliché-ridden war films). Among the American troops are such dependable performers as Harry Guardino, Woody Strode, Rip Torn, Barry Atwater, George Peppard, Robert Blake and Martin Landau. Former cowboy-star Bob Steele also shows up briefly as an American general. According to director Lewis Milestone, Pork Chop Hill was cut by nearly twenty minutes because the wife of star Gregory Peck felt that her husband made his first entrance too late into the picture. True or not, the film does show signs of post-production tampering, with flashes of several excised scenes showing up under the main title credits. Blu-ray Release date: March 7th, 2012

Jeremiah Johnson BD - With a story that both mythologized man-in-nature and shed a somewhat harsh light on the "Manifest Destiny" that drove white people across the continent taking land from the Indians, Jeremiah Johnson (1972) was perfectly in sync with the prevailing counter-cultural attitudes of the time. The film's environmental themes (close to the heart of star Robert Redford) and its anti-establishment, Thoreau-like message struck a chord with audiences and made this a hit, another worthy entry in the Vietnam-era cycle of Westerns - among them Arthur Penn's Little Big Man (1970) and Robert Altman's McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971) - that were critical of civilization's negative effect on the wilderness. Blu-ray Release date: May 1st, 2012

Theatre Bizarre - Down a seedy city street, a young woman is obsessed with what appears to be a long abandoned theatre. One night, she sees the front door slightly ajar and impulsively decides to sneak inside. But there in the vast, eerie auditorium, a show unlike any other unfolds before her eyes. Its host is an odd marionette-like man who will introduce her to six tales of the truly bizarre: A couple traveling in a remote part of the French Pyrenees crosses paths with a lustful witch; A paranoid lover faces the wrath of a partner who has been pushed to her limit; The Freudian dreams of an unfaithful husband blur the lines between fantasy and reality; The horrors of the real world are interpreted through the mind of a child; A woman addicted to other people's memories gets her fix through the fluid of her victims' eyeballs; And a perverse obsession with sweets turns sour for a couple in too deep. But as the stories unfold, something strange is happening to the woman. Something irreversible and horrific. DVD Release Date: April 24th, 2012

The Saint Double Feature - Hugh Sinclair stars as Simon Templar in this thrilling double feature of The Saint. In The Saint's Vacation, Templar is puzzled by an innocent-looking music box. Surrounding it is a legacy of robbery, torture and murder. As The Saint explores sinister places in the dead of night, he learns the box contains the key to a valuable code sought by ruthless thieves. When a crook develops a conscience and tries to expose his cohorts, they murder him at Templar's doorstep in The Saint Meets the Tiger. The Saint trails the mystery to a remote English village where small-town manners cover up a hotbed of intrigue and a bloodthirsty band of gold smugglers. DVD Release Date: April 25th, 2012

Being John Malkovich BD - Have you ever wanted to be someone else? Or, more specifically, have you ever wanted to crawl through a portal hidden in an anonymous office building and thereby enter the cerebral cortex of John Malkovich for fifteen minutes before being spat out on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike? Then director Spike Jonze (Adaptation) and writer Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) have the movie for you. Melancholy marionettes, office drudgery, a frizzy-haired Cameron Diaz (There's Something About Mary) - but that's not all! Surrealism, possession, John Cusack (Say Anything), a domesticated primate, Freud, Catherine Keener (Capote), non sequiturs, and absolutely no romance! But wait: get your Being John Malkovich now and we'll throw in emasculation, slapstick, Abelard and Heloise, and extra Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich. Blu-ray Release date: May 15th, 2012

Bird of Paradise BD - Johnny (Joel McCrea) is an intrepid young sailor traveling the South Seas who falls in love with Luana (Dolores del Rio), the beautiful daughter of an island chief. But Luana is betrothed to a neighboring native prince, and is soon to be married. With little thought to the future, Johnny and Luana elope together, searching for paradise in each other’s arms. Blu-ray Release date: May 1st, 2012

Tuesday, After Christmas - A fixture on many 'Best Films of 2011' lists, Tuesday, After Christmas is an astutely observed, deeply felt drama showcasing the strengths of current Romanian cinema in its beautifully calibrated performances, expert craftsmanship, and dazzling technical mastery. Further evidence of director Radu Muntean's place at the forefront of contemporary filmmakers. DVD Release Date: May 14th, 2012

The Theo Angelopoulos Collection Vol 3 - Theo Angelopoulos is Greece s most celebrated filmmaker and has been acclaimed by British critics Derek Malcolm and David Thompson as one of the world s greatest living directors. His body of work examines the history of modern Greece from a social and political perspective. This thrid volume includes The Suspended Step of the Stork (1991) Ulysses' Gaze (1995) Eternity and a Day (1998) The Weeping Meadow (2004) and The Dust of Time (2008) DVD Release Date: March 26th 2012

Shed No Tears - A remarkable lost film noir classic. A larcenous wife convinces her husband to fake his death so they can claim on his life insurance, but the scam goes awry when he discovers that he is in the cross-hairs of a murder scheme. DVD Release Date: March 13th, 2012

Ugetsu Monogatori BD - The great Japanese director Kenji Mizoguchi draws on sources from both East and West for this, his crowning achievement. Focusing on an ambitious potter haunted by a beautiful ghost and a farmer who dreams of becoming a samurai, Ugetsu offers a commentary on the delusions of lust and power and the folly of war. Renowned cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa helps Mizoguchi seamlessly interweave the supernatural with reality, creating one of the most beautiful films of all time.
