ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): A few things stuck out as notable this past week. Hard not to enjoy Ultimate Gangsters Collection 'Classics' - revisiting The Public Enemy, White Heat, Little Caesar and The Petrified Forest in 1080P resolution. A great package. Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle looks tremendous on Blu-ray - another of the great classics from Studio Ghibli. Pasolini's Theorem get a significant upgrade via BFI's new Blu-ray. Bravo. I also enjoyed Dexter Season 7 as a nice diversion from our normal fare. The 3-disc Blu-ray set provides 12-episodes in sterling quality. Hal Hartley's first feature The Unbelievable Truth gets a Blu-ray release from Olive Films and I found it an enjoyable 'watch'. Less worthy, but with some merit - and also from Olive - Three Faces West a less-typical John Wayne western and The Miracle of the Bells with Alida Valli, Fred MacMurray and Sinatra (as a young priest, no less). Personally, I found the latter the most entertaining. Arrow continues to impress with their strong packages of horror-genre films - Motel Hell - gets the Blu-ray treatment and fans will relish the superior a/v and substantial extras. On DVD Eric covered Henry Jaglom Collection vol. 2 which includes some amusing comedies and I thoroughly appreciated Loophole - a 50's crime-drama Noir essential with documentary overtones. Very cool. Calm blue ocean, calm blue ocean...


Loophole - Everything’s going right for Mike Donovan (Barry Sullivan). He came home after the war, married his gal, got a regular job as a bank teller in Hollywood, makes payments on a house in the ‘burbs. But, as the voice-over narrator of this on-edge film noir notes, “One day the world’s all right. The next, it’s nowhere.” Nice-guy Donovan’s life quickly begins to unravel. He’s wrongly suspected of grand larceny at the bank, hounded by a dogged insurance investigator convinced of his guilt and loses his job and home. Is there any way he can stop his free fall? As the insurance shamus determined to crush Donovan, Charles McGraw (The Narrow Margin, Armored Car Robbery) glares and growls in the style that helped make him one of the icons of noir. Dorothy Malone plays Donovan’s supportive wife. And, in solid noir tradition, Mary Beth Hughes is sizzling blonde ice as an avaricious femme fatale. DVD Release Date: April 25th, 2013

Motel Hell BD - People come from far and wide to sample Farmer Vincent's distinctively flavored dried, smoked sausages, but one might well ask why there are so few people staying at his nearby motel. This horror comedy provides the graphic answer. It seems that the good farmer only uses the highest quality, specially processed human meat in his treats. To prepare the meat, he first harvests healthy tourists from his hotel. Next, he plants them into the ground up to their necks and with a sharp knife carefully slices their vocal chords. He and his portly sister then feed the victims until the meat is tender and well marbled with fat. Afterward they are promptly slaughtered, minced with a few secret herbs, and stuffed into sausage casings, which are then carefully aged in the smokehouse. His operation is abruptly cut off when Vincent's normal brother, Bruce, learns about the secret ingredients. In the end, the brothers grab chain saws and have a hilarious, blood-soaked showdown. Blu-ray Release Date: May 20th, 2013

The Unbelievable Truth BD - The Unbelievable Truth is a comedy of errors surrounding a beautiful college bound girl (Adrienne Shelly) disturbingly preoccupied with the threat of nuclear destruction. Nevertheless, she falls in love with a handsome ex-con (Robert John Burke) who is rumored to have murdered, many years before, the father of his high school sweetheart. A warm-hearted satire about idealistic young love, capitalist moralizing in the home, forgiveness, skepticism, and the need for work one loves. The stellar cast includes Edie Falco, Matt Malloy and Paul Schulze. This was writer and director Hal Hartley's feature film debut. Blu-ray Release date: May 14th, 2013

The Miracle of the Bells BD - Hollywood press agent Bill Dunnigan (Fred MacMurray) attempts to carry out a deathbed promise he made to the only girl he ever loved, an aspiring actress names Olga Treskovna (Alida Valli), who dies after completing her first and only film. As promised, Bill takes her body to the Pennsylvania coal town of her birth for the funeral arrangements. To arouse public interest, and get the reluctant studio to release the film, he enlists the aid of local priest Father Paul (Frank Sinatra) and asks all the local churches to ring their bells for three days. Studio head, Marcus Harris (Lee J. Cobb) wants to reshoot the film with a movie star, rather than risk losing a fortune on an "unknown" whom he can no longer groom for stardom. Her story becomes a national phenomenon, but will this man-made miracle convince Harris to change his mind or will it take a genuine miracle. Irving Pichel (The Most Dangerous Game) directs this wonderful, heartwarming classic that recalls such films as Going My Way and The Bells of St. Mary. Ben Hecht and Quentin Reynolds adapted the best-selling novel by Russell Janney. Blu-ray Release date: May 14th, 2013

Three Faces West BD - John Wayne (Rio Grande) stars in this romantic drama packed with action, suspense and intrigue. He plays John Phillips, the resident leader of a weather-ravaged Dust Bowl town who welcomes a gifted surgeon, Dr. Karl Braun (Charles Coburn) and his lovely daughter, Leni (Sigrid Gurie) into his community. Dr. Braun and his daughter are refugees fleeing from the Nazis oppressed Austria and are looking to carve out a new existence for themselves. After barely surviving two horrendous sand storms, the town's residence look to move the whole town to fertile new grounds in Oregon and John is the man to lead them to the new frontier. Directed by Bernard Vorhaus (Lady From Louisiana) and beautifully shot by the great John Alton (Border Incident) with a rousing score by Victor Young (Johnny Guitar). Blu-ray Release date: May 14th, 2013

Henry Jaglom Collection vol. 2: The Comedies - Three classic comedies by celebrated director Henry Jaglom: Sitting Ducks, about two petty criminals who steal a load of cash from the mob and make a run for Miami, picking up a few unexpected guests along the way; Can She Bake a Cherry Pie, in which a divorced woman strikes up an unlikely romance with a man she meets at a New York City café; New Year s Day: Time to Move On, in which a divorced man moves into a New York apartment on New Year s Eve only to find that it s previous tenants three young women are still living there. DVD Release Date: May 7th, 2013

Ultimate Gangsters Collection 'Classics' BD - The four films in the Classic Collection have been remastered for their Blu-ray debuts. They include The Public Enemy and White Heat with the legendary performances of James Cagney; Little Caesar with Edward G. Robinson as hoodlum Rico Bandello; and The Petrified Forest starring Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis and Leslie Howard. The collection includes a feature-length documentary Public Enemies: The Golden Age of the Gangster Drama which explores the development of the crime genre and the rise of Warner stars like Cagney, Bogart and Robinson. Also discussed are directors such as Walsh, Wellman and Curtiz; the films themselves; their influence on filmmakers worldwide; and Warner’s impact in establishing the genre. Blu-ray Release Date: May 21st, 2013

Howl's Moving Castle BD - A simple young girl called Sophie is put under a curse by the evil Witch Of The Waste, transforming her into an ugly old woman. Ashamed of her appearance, Sophie deserts her hat shop and heads into the hills in search of a cure. She comes across the strange, yet awesome Moving Castle, the abode of the much-feared magician, Howl. Inside the castle, Sophie befriends the fire demon Calcifer, who can see through the spell and offers to help her return to her natural form. For his efforts, however, Sophie must help Calcifer break the contract he has with Howl, the details of which he is forbidden to explain. So Sophie assumes the position of the castle's cleaning lady and gets close to the young, handsome Howl, who takes a fancy to the young Sophie, whom he can also see behind her withered facade. Blu-ray Release Date: May 21st, 2013

Theorem BD - A handsome, enigmatic stranger (Terence Stamp) arrives at a bourgeois household in Milan and successfully seduces each family member, not forgetting the maid. Then, as abruptly and mysteriously as he arrive, he departs. Unable to endure the void left in their lives, the father (Massimo Girotti) hands over his factory to the workers, the son abandons his vocation as a painter, the mother (Silvana Mangano) abandons herself to random sexual encounters, and the daughter sinks into catatonia. The maid (Laura Betti, Best Actress, Venice 1968), however, becomes a saint. Blu-ray Release Date: May 27th, 2013

Dexter Season 7 BD - DEXTER returns to Blu-ray in explosive fashion with Season 7, as Dexter is finally forced to confront his greatest fear, as Debra witnesses his insatiable, ritualistic slaying of a killer. Now Deb knows the secret of his Dark Passenger, his undeniable thirst for blood, and the Code that their father Harry instilled in him as a young boy. But as Deb tries to reconcile the unfathomable idea that her beloved, mild-mannered brother is Miami's most notorious serial killer, Dexter is still pulled by his natural impulses to seek out the guilty and exact his brand of vigilante justice.
