ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): We reviewed two 3 Blu-ray boxsets this past week and they both represent strong value.Criterion's Wim Wenders: The Road Trilogy is my current set of the year. A massive recommendation! There is also a tonne of merit in Arrow's Outlaw Gangster VIP - The Entire Collection - six of these infectious genre of films - following right in the mould of Eclipse's Nikkatsu Noir with its late sixties crime-dramas all following an enigmatic protagonist with similar themes and characters. It's limited to 3,000 units so if you are keen - don't wait. Masters of Cinema bring us Josef von Sternberg's The Last Command on Blu-ray! Absolute masterpiece. Get it. Nu'ff said. As predicted - Criterion's Blu-ray of Robert Altman's The Player exceeds the existing - superior in every respect. Another must-own, IMO. Clint's True Crime has some definite pluses and Warner's new Blu-ray supports the film very well. I really enjoyed Atom Egoyan's Remember - amazing performances - a special film. I also enjoyed the thriller You'll Like My Mother on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory. It has lots of very worthy horror elements. More Blaxploitation fun with the Blu-ray of Dolemite with his all-girl kung-fu army to bring down the bad guys! Arrow bring us a super-stacked Blu-ray package with Bride of Re-Animator - a wild and wholly successor to the original cult classic. Lots of DVD coverage this week. Gregory reviews Josef von Sternberg's Crime and Punishment - a classic about a man who is haunted by a murder he's committed starring Peter Lorre. Have you seen the Essential Noir Two O'Clock Courage, directed by Anthony Mann? Gregory's also compared three more from The Whistler series to showcase the best transfers; The Return of the Whistler, The Thirteenth Hour and Secret of the Whistler. Eric reviewed Follow the Money - the first season of a Danish Crime Thriller about deeply hidden monetary secret. Henry Gamble's Birthday Party totally taking place in the 24-hours of the 17th birthday pool party of preacher's son.

Noir Quote for the week

"You like money. You’ve got a great big dollar sign there where most women have a heart."

- Johnny Clay (Sterling Hayden) in The Killing (1956)

Have a stupendous week! - Gary


Remember BD - The story opens in darkness with breathing sounds as if we were stuck in a deep well. Then Zev Gutman (Christopher Plummer) wakes up in his room in the nursing home, calling for his wife, Ruth, only to be told by the nurse that she had passed away a week ago. Zev suffers from dementia and this is the first of many awakenings. Right away doubt is in the air and Zev is not the dotty old fool so many movie octogenarians are reduced to. Who in this place can he trust? Atom Egoyan's terrifically paced episodic thriller Remember is hard to forget. Blu-ray Release date: May 3rd, 2016

You'll Like My Mother BD - Oscar winner Patty Duke stars in the tense and claustrophobic psychological thriller, You’ll Like My Mother. When her husband is killed in Vietnam, Francesca Kinsolving (Duke) finds herself alone… and pregnant. She makes her way to Minnesota in order to meet her late husband’s mother, certain that she’ll be greeted with open arms. But Francesca soon discovers that there may be more to the Kinsolving family than she ever imagined… and that this simple family reunion is only the beginning of a waking nightmare. Blu-ray Release date: May 10th, 2016

The Last Command BD - An exiled Russian general turned Hollywood extra (Emil Jannings, in an incredibly passionate performance) is chosen by a former adversary (William Powell) to play a role that resembles his former self and gradually loses his grip on reality. Equally a sharp witted satire of the Hollywood machine and a heartbreaking drama about one man's emotional downfall, Josef von Sternberg's The Last Command (his second major Hollywood picture) is one of the finest and most significant films of its era. Blu-ray Release date: May 16th, 2016

Wim Wenders: The Road Trilogy BD - In the 1970s, Wim Wenders was among the first true international breakthrough artists of the revolutionary New German Cinema movement, a filmmaker whose fascination with the physical landscapes and emotional contours of the open road proved to be universal. In the middle of that decade, Wenders embarked on a three-film journey that took him from the wide roads of Germany to the endless highways of the United States and back again. Each starring Rüdiger Vogler as the director’s alter ego, Alice in the Cities, Wrong Move, and Kings of the Road are dramas of emotional transformation that follow their characters’ searches for themselves, all rendered with uncommon soulfulness and visual poetry. Blu-ray Release date: May 31st, 2016

True Crime BD - When a colleague dies in a car crash, Steve Everett (Eastwood) of the Oakland Tribune inherits a human interest story on the upcoming final few hours of Frank Beechum (Washington), a convicted killer on Death Row. Trouble is, Steve's an investigative reporter by trade, tradition and temperament and, when he begins researching the case, starts to suspect the remorseless Beechum may be innocent. Moreover, his life is such a mess that he hardly has time to meet Beechum for a last exclusive interview, let alone to search for clues and win a stay of execution. Though the closing quarter of an hour is inevitably flawed by the kind of contrivance parodied in The Player and repeated in numerous race-against-time stories, for the most part this is another typically intelligent Eastwood film, a thriller that's unusually and movingly perceptive about human emotions. Blu-ray Release date: May 3rd, 2016

The Player BD - A Hollywood studio executive with a shaky moral compass (Tim Robbins) finds himself caught up in a criminal situation that would be right at home in one of his movie projects, in this biting industry satire from Robert Altman. Mixing elements of film noir with sly insider comedy, The Player, based on a novel by Michael Tolkin, functions as both a nifty stylish murder story and a commentary on its own making, and it is stocked with a heroic supporting cast (Peter Gallagher, Whoopi Goldberg, Greta Scacchi, Dean Stockwell, Fred Ward) and a lineup of star cameos that make for an astonishing Hollywood who’s who. This complexly woven grand entertainment (which kicks off with one of American cinema’s most audacious and acclaimed opening shots) was the film that marked Altman’s triumphant commercial comeback in the early 1990s. Criterion Blu-ray Release date: May 24th, 2016

Dolemite BD - Acclaimed comedian Rudy Ray Moore's outrageously funny and action packed blaxploitation classic makes its worldwide Blu-ray debut, fully restored in 2k from a recently discovered 35mm negative and loaded with extras, including a new making-of documentary by Elijah Drenner and a historical commentary track from Moore's biographer Mark Murray, featuring interviews with Moore as well as co-stars Jerry Jones, Lady Reed, John Kerry, cinematographer Nick Von Sternberg and more! Blu-ray Release date: April 26th, 2016

Outlaw Gangster VIP - The Entire Collection BD - The series offers up a depiction of the Japanese underworld that was unprecedented in its realism and its sympathetic portrayal of its protagonist as a man haunted by his past, unable to escape a life of crime. The success of the initial installment spawned five sequels, continuing the story of the lone wolf Slasher Goro and his quest for redemption. The films presented a new kind of realism and violence that would prefigure Kinji Fukasaku's Battles Without Honor and Humanity series, with their winning combination of brutal violence, gang warfare and sweeping romance, these films make for a unique and unforgettable viewing experience. Blu-ray Release dates: April 18th-19th, 2016

Bride of Re-Animator BD - It is 8 years since the Miskatonic massacre. Unperturbed by the disastrous outcome of his previous meddling with the dead, Dr. West (again played by Jeffrey Combs) continues his research into the phenomenon of re-animation; only this time, he plans to create life starting with the heart of his young protégé Dan's dearly deceased, Meg Halsey. Surely nothing could go wrong? Blu-ray Release Date: April 11th, 2016

The Return of the Whistler - This being the final entry in the superlative Whistler series, I was expecting a dud. But it's not. Overall, the movie is definitely second rank but still representative of many of the series' better elements. The mystery sets up quickly as prospective bride (Aubert) disappears from her hotel room, leaving prospective groom (Duane) wondering what went wrong. After all, she seemed so sincere and loving. The hotel clerk (Howland, I believe) is worse than no help and may make you glad for Motel 6. The mystery deepens as detective Lane turns up clues and things begin to appear not as expected. Sony DVD Release Date: July 7, 2015

The Thirteenth Hour - Steve Reynolds (Richard Dix, Cimarron), owner of a struggling trucking firm, finds himself in competition with a rival company. While on a delivery, Steve is attacked by a masked assailant and his truck is stolen. The driver of the stolen truck ends up killing a motorcycle cop, and Steve is blamed for the crime. It’s up to Steve to find out who stole the truck before he is sent to jail for the rest of his life. Sony DVD Release Date: July 7, 2015

Secret of the Whistler - Lesser entry in the offbeat Whistler series. The story is worthy enough. Richard Dix plays an "artist' and kept man who takes a fancy to a shapely blonde model while his wealthy wife is stricken with a serious heart problem. The intrigue goes on from there. The problem is that the screenplay is filmed in straightforward fashion, with none of the moody atmospherics that distinguish other entries. The result is an entertaining 60 minutes, but minus the usual visual panache. Apparently, journeyman director George Sherman wasn't advised of the proper lighting or feel of the series. Either that or the producers were seeking a stylistic departure. Sony DVD Release Date: July 7th, 2015

Crime and Punishment (1935) - Columbia Pictures updated Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic novel "Crime and Punishment" from its original era and set it during the bleak years of the Great Depression. The updating works due to an excellent director and a superb cast. Josef von Sternberg guided the production along with his usual flair, making "Crime and Punishment" an entertaining motion picture. In the film, Roderick Raskolnikov (Peter Lorre) murders a haggish, old pawnbroker and soon discovers that he hasn't committed the perfect crime. Inspector Porfiry (Edward Arnold) is on to him and starts a cat and mouse game with Roderick that nearly drives Roderick insane. Also, a sympathetic prostitute, Sonya (Marian Marsh), falls in love with Roderick and begs him to give himself up and face the punishment that is coming to him. DVD Release Date: September 15th, 2015

Two O'Clock Courage - It opens at the fog-shrouded intersection of Ocean View Drive and Arch Street where Tom Conway, looking and sounding eerily like his more successful brother George Sanders, bleeds from a head wound and can't remember who he is. Skidding to his rescue in a taxi comes game hack Ann Rutherford (a sister under the visor to On The Town's Brunnhilde Esterhazy), who becomes his sidekick even though it turns out he may be mixed up in a high-profile murder. Trying to establish his identity and what he might have done (or not done), the pair travel through a theatrical/nightlife milieu; the mystery concerns a plagiarized play written by a dead man, which shares its title with this movie. DVD Release Date: June 9th, 2015

Follow the Money - Follow the Money takes us into the world of economic crime in the banks, on the stock exchanges, and in the board rooms. It is the story of speculators, swindlers, corporate moguls and the crimes they commit in their hunt for wealth. It is also the story of us human beings, the rich, the poor, the greedy and the fraudulent who ll go to any lengths to build the lives of their dreams. DVD Release Date: April 25th, 2016

Henry Gamble's Birthday Party - Henry Gamble's Birthday Party is an exhilarating ensemble drama centered around the seventeenth birthday of megachurch preacher's son Henry Gamble. At once a poignant coming-of-age tale and provocative portrait of community, riotous party movie and deeply moving family drama, many threads weave this vast tapestry. At the center of this world lies the confident, music-loving Henry, floating in a world of sexual possibility; his sister Autumn, caught between the spiritual and physical; preacher's wife Kat, reeling from an affair with an older man and aching for her own identity; and, finally, Bob, evangelical star on the rise, typically optimistic, but sensing his family drifting away. DVD Release Date: May 3rd, 2016
