ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): There are a lot of great releases this week. Sergio Leone's masterpiece Once Upon a Time in the West was an overwhelming presentation via Blu-ray. The commentary is also magnificent. Ozu's films in 1080P hit me at new levels and Late Autumn is case-in-point. BFI are doing some great work here. Papillon with McQueen and Hoffman remains a memorable film experience now accentuated by the grandeur of 1080P. I'd never appreciated The Misfits on SD but the higher resolution gives it a more epic scale placing it on a higher emotional plane. Thumbs up. Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno is a keen, unique documentary titillating us with 'what might have been'. Wilder's classic Some Like It Hot on Blu-ray is an easy purchase at the asking price. There really aren't a lot of comedy films at that that level. Kubrick's Lolita gets the hi-def treatment and improves its level of impact. I had an enjoyable viewing of the Ford/Wayne effort The Horse Soldiers - a very good film. Jan Svankmajer's Alice is a concoction of imagination and visually trickery that suits the newer format to a 'T'. Le Mans is riveting with 'the racing sequences [being] among the best ever committed to film.' I might pass on Marriage Italian Style - while I adore the film - the HD transfer adds little to the presentation. On DVD Fate is the Hunter is a forgotten gem available in a decent SD rendering and Laila - a silent Norwegian masterpiece. These are the golden times!


Once Upon a Time in the West BD - Sergio Leone's masterpiece. In ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, Leone pulls together all the themes, characterizations, visuals, humor, and musical experiments of the three "Dollars" films and comes up with a true epic western. It is a stunning, operatic film of breadth, detail, and stature that deserves to be considered among the greatest westerns ever made. Although the original release in America was a severely edited version (Paramount wanted to cram an extra show in every night to sell more popcorn), the film was re-released, uncut, in 1984. (The videotape version is also uncut.) ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST's credit sequence is perhaps one of the most famous in cinema history. It unfolds slowly, deliberately, as Leone lingers on the strange behavior of Frank's (Fonda) three hired killers (two of whom are Jack Elam and Woody Strode in unforgettable cameos) who await the arrival of a train carrying "the Man" (Bronson), a stranger who has asked for an audience with Frank. The perfectly realized details--water dripping on Strode's bald head, Elam trying to shoo a pesky fly, and the third gang member cracking his knuckles--brings the scene immediately to life and create an almost unbearable sense of anticipation. It doesn't let up from there. Blu-ray Release Date: May 31st, 2011

Lolita BD - Newly arrived in Ramsdale, New Hampshire, European émigré Humbert Humbert is smitten. He plans to marry Charlotte Haze. That way he’ll always be close to his dear one – Charlotte’s precocious daughter! Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick explores the theme of sexual obsession (a subject he would revisit 37 years later in Eyes Wide Shut) with this darkly comic and deeply moving version of Vladimir Nabokov’s novel. James Mason plays devious, deluded Humbert: wedded to needy Charlotte (Shelley Winters); rivaled by the ubiquitous Clare Quilty (chameleon-like Peter Sellers); and enraptured to his gelatinous core by the blithe teen (Sue Lyon) with that “lovely, lyrical, lilting name” – Lolita.
Blu-ray Release Date: May 31st, 2011

Alice BD - Czech surrealist Jan Svankmajer s Alice (1988) is a creepy and disturbing adaptaion of Lewis Carroll's perennial literary classic, and perhaps the most faithful the original work. Combining a live-action Alice (Kristýna Kohoutová) with a Wonderland filled with threatening stop-motion characters, Svankmajer s deliberately crude style of animation, use of close-ups, and rich design work lend the film a pervading sense of unease and a menacing dream-logic which marries a sly visual wit with piercing psychological insight.
Blu-ray Release date: May 23rd, 2011

Marriage Italian Style BD - Whenever Vittorio de Sica gets together with Sophia Loren to make a motion picture, something wonderful happens. It did when he directed her in "Gold of Naples," Two Women," "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow," and now it's happened again, in "Marriage Italian Style." The something wonderful that's happened is the conception and projection of a film so frank and free and understanding of a certain kind of vital woman—and man, too—that it sends you forth from the theater feeling you've known her — and him — all your life.
Blu-ray Release date: May 17th, 2011

Late Autumn BD - When nostalgia about college days inspires a group of middle-aged men businessmen to match-make for a widow, played by Setsuko Hara (Tokyo Story), and her daughter they have no idea of the strife their careless interference will cause. Late Autumn's examination of familial upheaval moves effortlessly from comedy to pathos and is amongst Ozu's finest post-war films. Included here is Ozu s moving silent drama A Mother Should be Loved (1934). Young Sadao struggles to come to terms with the discovery that he is not the son of his father s widow. His fragile acceptance of this is soon disrupted.
Blu-ray Release Date: May 23rd, 2011

An Autumn Afternoon BD - Yasujiro Ozu's captivating final film, An Autumn Afternoon, displays the master director s skills at their consummate best. Ozu regular Chishu Ryu (Tokyo Story) plays Shuhei Hirayama, a concerned father eager to find a husband for his faithful daughter Michiko (Shima Iwashita) before she sees out her days caring for him. A cast of colourful characters weave seamlessly in and out of the story, highlighting themes of loneliness and fear for the future with deep poignancy and ironic humour. Ozu's rarely-seen post-war film A Hen in the Wind (1948) is also included here. In a Japan recently devastated by WWII a devoted but near destitute mother waits for her husband s demobilisation. When her son falls seriously ill she turns to prostitution to pay his hospital bills.
Blu-ray Release Date: May 23rd, 2011

Fate is the Hunter - Pilot Jack Savage (Rod Taylor) is suspected of drinking and causing an airliner crash that leaves only a single survivor, one of the stewardesses. Savage is suspected of being the problem because no one believes his radio transmissions of a landing gear problem. His wartime buddy, airline executive Sam C. McBane (Glenn Ford) is convinced of his friend's innocence and investigates doggedly. His investigation, and his relentless defense of Savage, imperils his pending promotion with the airline. Much of the movie is spent recreating McBane's relationship with Savage, and justifying his defense of the dead pilot. DVD Release Date: May, 2011

Papillon BD - They called him Papillon, meaning butterfly. If only he had wings to go with the name. Unable to fly, Henri Charriere virtually willed himself free. He persisted until he did the impossible: escape Devil’s Island. Based on Charriere’s bestseller and shot in Spain and Jamaica, Franklin J. Schaffner’s film of Papillon united two stars at key career junctures. After a decade of fine work in The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles and Bullitt, Steve McQueen found in Charriere another ideal tough-guy role. Coming off The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy and Little Big Man, Dustin Hoffman again distinguished himself as Dega, Charriere’s scruffy friend.
Blu-ray Release date: May 24th, 2011

The Misfits BD - It was the last roundup for Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe, who gave their final performances in this melancholy modern Western. Arthur Miller wrote the script (some say overwrote) as a contemplation of his then-wife, Monroe, and set the piece in the half-world of Reno, Nevada. The dangers of this kind of meta-fictional approach are not entirely avoided, but the clean, clear-eyed direction of John Huston keeps the film grounded. And then there are the people: Gable a warrior past his time, Monroe overwhelmed by the world and its attentions, Montgomery Clift visibly broken in pieces, Eli Wallach a postwar neurotic.
Blu-ray Release date: May 10th, 2011

Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno BD - One of the great, unfinished works in film history, Inferno, by Henri-Georges Clouzot was an audaciously experimental film with a virtually unlimited budget that was stopped only three weeks into production. Working closely with Clouzot's widow, Inès, Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea reconstructs Clouzot's original vision, filling and explaining the gaps with new interviews, re-enactments and Clouzot's own notes and storyboards, delivering an in-depth look at the masterpiece that might have been.
Blu-ray Release date: April 26th, 2011

The Horse Soldiers BD - A crisp retelling of a true-life episode from the Civil War, The Horse Soldiers is a latter-day sorta-Western from John Ford, falling midway between The Searchers (1956) and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962). In 1863 a Union colonel named Grierson (Marlowe in the film, and John Wayne by any name) led his cavalry several hundred miles behind Confederate lines to cut the railway track between Newton Station and soon-to-be-embattled Vicksburg. Grierson's raid was as successful as it was daring, and remarkably bloodless.
Blu-ray Release date: May 10th, 2011

Laila - 1929's epically scaled Norwegian feature comes from Danish-German director and noted cinematographer George Schneevoigt, who brings every exotic corner of on-location Scandinavia to the forefront in a decades-spanning romantic adventure. Mona Mårtenson is Laila, a young girl separated from her parents as a baby and raised by a wealthy reindeer owner Aslag (Peter Malberg) in the frozen tundra. Though she is returned a year later, Laila grows into a young woman of two worlds, at home with both her settled and nomadic upbringings. DVD Release Date: May 16th, 2011

Le Mans BD - A classic auto-racing movie starring Steve McQueen, Le Mans puts the audience in the driver's seat for what is often called the most grueling race in the world. McQueen plays the American driver, locked in an intense grudge match with his German counterpart during the 24-hour race through the French countryside even as he wrestles with the guilt over causing an accident that cost the life of a close friend. McQueen is his usual stoic magnetic self, and the racing sequences are among the best ever committed to film. A solid character-driven story combines with raw visceral power to make Le Mans a rich tapestry of action and thrills.
Blu-ray Release date: May 24th, 2011

Some Like It Hot BD - The remaining area in which Some Like It Hot stands apart from the competition is that Curtis and Lemmon remain believable throughout. Instead of acting camp, they play their roles straight and with conviction. Picking up on the quirks of being female, the outcome is far more amusing than might be expected. The costumes of Orry-Kelly help a great deal, as does Wilder's decision to shoot in black and white, but the credit must lie with Curtis and Lemmon.
