ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Decent week with quite a few 'also-rans' but top spot is easy going to BFI's magnificent Charlie Chaplin: Mutual Films Collection on Blu-ray which significantly advances over other editions with multiple scores (including all Carl Davis') and commentaries. A must own for fans of Chaplin. Arrow, again go all-out with their complete Blu-ray releases of both John Frankenheimer's The Train and John Mackenzie's The Long Good Friday. Both stacked and with the highest caliber a/v. These guys keep getting better! I found Peter Strickland's The Duke of Burgundy an odd but very curious interpersonal drama and it looks stunning on Artificial Eye's Blu-ray. Great film that is continuing to grow on me. Still Alice has some memorable work from Julianne Moore and I watched the Blu-ray very attentive to the well-realized story. Absolutely recommended! Farrah seeks payback in Extremities - a riveting, revenge-based, drama now on Blu-ray from Olive Films. I'm a huge 50's creature-feature fan and was definitely enjoying the Blu-ray presentation of It! The Terror from Beyond Space. But the value is only there for strong devotees of the genre. Kino Lorber do their competent work on Mario Bava's Evil Eye with alternate version (The Girl Who Knew Too Much) and a commentary. Region 'A' Giallo-types shouldn't hesitate. Yasuharu Hasebe's Retaliation, on Region FREE Arrow Blu-ray, is a Japanese gangster flic in the 'Stray Cat Rock' vein. Those keen have already pre-ordered. If you don't know - then you don't know. :) . Returning to mainstream for a minute; They Call Me Mr. Tibbs! is another Poitier / Tibbs crime drama - always worth re-visitation. Nico Mastorakis' Island of Death is now on Blu-ray and may be a bit harsh for the uninitiated, but I think the film has true value for those who can stomach the ugliness. We had two inferior looking films as our final comments; Kings of the Sun isn't up to par for the video appearance and Stay As You Are fails in all areas - film, audio, video and extras. No DVDs this week - our lads have had enough of my demands (just joking!) See you next week. "Here's looking at you, kid." - Rick Blaine


Stay As You Are BD - While away on a business trip in Florence, middle-aged Roman architect Giulio Marengo meets a beautiful teenager and falls in love with her. The girl's name is Francesca and she is a student that was taken in by a farmer after her mother, Fosca, died. Lorenzo, a friend of Giulio's learns of his relationship with Franscesca and begins to suspect that she may be his daughter. In fact, according to various gossip, the architect had been the lover of Fosca about a year before the birth of Francesca, and therefore could be her biological father. Shocked by the news, Giulio tries to avoid Francesca in every way, moreover distracted by the fact that his daughter Ilaria is expecting a baby. Blu-ray Release date: May 12th, 2015

Still Alice BD - The accomplished Julianne Moore stars as respected academic Alice Howland, shocked by her diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's disease, and the actress' work as someone coping with the ravages of the unthinkable deserves all the plaudits it's going to get. But if it wasn't for costar Kristen Stewart, who plays Alice's daughter Lydia, "Still Alice" wouldn't be nearly as emotionally effective as it is. Moore and Stewart have been off-screen friends for more than a decade, and that bond only enhances the work they do here. Blu-ray Release date: May 12th, 2015

The Duke of Burgundy BD - In an unnamed European town, in an unspecified year, live Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen - Borgen) and Evelyn (Chiara D'Anna - Berberian Sound Studio). Every day Evelyn cycles to Cynthia's mansion to work as a lowly maid and every day the cruel, vindictive Cynthia inflicts countless sadistic humiliations upon her. But as the days go by and the pair begin to reveal themselves, it soon becomes clear that the humiliation may not all be of Cynthia's design... Blu-ray Release date: April 27th, 2015

Evil Eye BD - The film that launched the giallo genre, The Girl Who Knew Too Much is a work whose importance is difficult to overstate. It's also gorgeous to look at, with Bava's characteristic lush photography pairing noir shadows with brilliant sunlit scenes, taking full advantage of the beauty of Rome. Originally conceived as a romantic comedy, it retains many of the period traits of that genre, a characteristic that adds depth to its twisting plot as well as supporting a rich vein of black humour. Kino Lorber Blu-ray Release Date: May 19th, 2015

Kings of the Sun BD - Yul Brynner (Invitation to a Gunfighter) and George Chakiris (West Side Story) shine as the kings of two clashing cultures forced to form an alliance against a mutual threat in this gripping historical saga. Kings of the Sun is packed with intense action and thrilling drama! After a terrible battle leaves young Balam (Chakiris) king of his Mayan tribe, he leads his people out of Mexico to escape the rival clan still hunting them. But upon reaching their new home, a hostile Native American tribe attacks and the Mayans manage to capture Black Eagle (Brynner), the Native American leader. While held prisoner, Black Eagle manages to earn Balam's respect and the kings agree to peace. Blu-ray Release date: May 26th, 2015

Island of Death BD - Christopher (Bob Behling, CUJO) and Celia (Jane Ryall) flee to Mykonos and turn avenging angels on anyone they deem to be perverted (which is a bit like calling the kettle black since Christopher boffs an adorable-looking goat when Celia's not in the mood). Gays, lesbians, prostitutes, hippies, rapists, druggies, various fornicators, and even an African-American private detective hired to trail them by their mother are among the victims as the siblings tour the picturesque settings (although they train their camera more on the murders than the monuments), but they may have met their match in a mute shepherd (Nikos Tsachiridis). Blu-ray Release Date: May 25th and 26th, 2015

Charlie Chaplin: Mutual Films Collection BD - Charlie Chaplin entered the film industry in 1914 and by 1916 was the highest paid entertainer in the world after signing a contract with the Mutual Film Corporation for a salary of $670,000. Mutual built Chaplin his very own studio and allowed him total freedom to make 12 two-reel films during a 12-month period, which have been brought together for the first time on this two-disc box set. Chaplin subsequently recognized this period of film-making as the most inventive and liberating of his career. These twelve films demonstrate the breadth of Chaplin's abilities as both a physical slapstick actor and a subtle, endearing character actor. The collection includes the slapstick custard pie fights of Behind the Screen and his first minor masterpiece, The Vagabond, where he successfully combines pathos and comedy to create a lyrical love story. Blu-ray Release Date: May 18th, 2015

They Call Me Mr. Tibbs! BD - Sidney Poitier reprises his role as Virgil Tibbs in this crime drama, a story unrelated to that of the earlier film In the Heat of the Night. Once again, he is a veteran homicide detective and is currently investigating the murder of a prostitute. The primary suspect is San Francisco political activist Reverend Logan Sharpe Martin Landau, the last person seen with the victim. Tibbs and Sharpe are friends, and Tibbs would like to believe the priest is not guilty. Sharpe admits to Tibbs he has slept with the late hooker, and the detective intensifies his focus on his friend, and in one climactic scene, Virgil interrupts a city-council meeting where the priest is campaigning for political reform. Blu-ray Release date: May 12th, 2015

It! The Terror from Beyond Space BD - One of the best of the medium-budgeted science fiction flicks of the 1950s, It! The Terror from Beyond Space is set in "the future" 1973, to be exact. An rescue ship travels out to Mars to retrieve the only survivor of a space probe that has experienced some sort of cataclysm. That survivor, Col Ed Carruthers (Marshall Thompson) is accused of murdering his fellow crewmen. But Ed claims that the killer was a Martian monster, and hopes to prove his assertions by signing up for a second journey to the Red Planet. Before long, the crew members of this second expedition are being systematically killed off, and it looks as though Ed is up to his old tricks. As it turns out, however, Ed was telling the truth: there is a monster on board, the savage descendant of the once-mighty Martian civilization, who snuck on board when an irresponsible crew member left the door open. Blu-ray Release date: May 19th, 2015

Extremities BD - Attacked by a masked assailant, Marjorie (Farrah Fawcett) lives in mortal fear that the unidentified man will strike again -- especially since he knows her address. Sure enough, Joe the attacker (James Russo) breaks into Marjorie's home and subjects her to a night of terror and sexual humiliation. But Marjorie manages to turns the tables on her attacker, knocking him unconscious and rendering him helpless. The remainder of the story charts Marjorie's battle with herself: should she turn Joe over to the authorities, who may very well set him free, or should she mete out her own punishment. Blu-ray Release date: May 19th, 2015

The Train BD - Discount some self-conscious talk about Art as a national heritage, as well as clumsy dubbing of the supporting cast, and you have a rattling good thriller about a World War II German general (Scofield) determined to flee Paris just before the liberation with a trainload of Impressionist paintings. One obsession runs headlong into another as a French railway inspector (Lancaster), once unwillingly started out in opposition, finds he cannot stop, and must go on finding new ways and means of delaying the train for an hour here, a day there. In Frankenheimer's hands, the whole paraphernalia of trains, tracks and shunting yards acquires an almost hypnotic fascination as the screen becomes a giant chessboard on which huge metallic pawns are manoeuvred, probing for some fatal weakness but seemingly engaged in some deadly primeval struggle. Arrow Blu-ray Release Date: May 11th, 2015

Retaliation BD - It was also directed by Yasuharu Hasebe, responsible for some of the best Nikkatsu action films of the 60s and 70s. Studly Akira Kobayashi is a Yakuza recently released from jail who discovers that his gang fell apart when its elderly godfather fell ill. He is recruited by a rival gang to help them usurp another vicious family from power in a small farming town; in return he will be put in charge of the area's gang division. Accompanying him on his mission is legendary Shishido Joe, who has vowed revenge for his brother's death in the gang fight that sent Kobayashi to prison. Meiko Kaji, shortly before she became a Pinky Violence idol, is the innocent farm girl Kobayashi falls in love with. Of course, this being a Yakuza movie, the plan goes wrong when it is revealed that Kobayashi was merely being used for the gang's villainous ends, and all hell breaks loose in a memorable blood-drenched finale! Blu-ray Release date: May 11th/12th, 2015

The Long Good Friday BD - The Long Good Friday is a textbook example of what a commercial British picture should be - which makes it all the more ironic that, due to various legal snarl-ups, the film was never actually given a wide release in UK cinemas. It's a fast-paced thriller that's strikes the right balance between humour and seriousness, and manages to function as both a penetrating psychological character study and a fascinating social and historical snapshot of a certain place at a certain critical point in history. MacKenzie's achievement is to blend all these elements together into a satisfying whole without ever pulling his punches - this is one of that rare breed: a gangster film for adults.
