ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey):  I'm feel confident that I'm stating a strong personal preference but this week I'll nominate By Brakhage Vol. 1 + 2 on Blu-ray as the top pick. I don't know that you could ever tire of it and may always be growing into it. Criterion stays on top in DVD circles as well with Letters from Fontainhas: Three Films by Pedro Costa but I want to make special note of Second Run's Diamonds of the Night (masterful!). While I had ginormous anticipation over Weir's unforgettable Picnic at Hanging Rock I think it's prudent to wait for the upcoming UK Second Sight. And speaking of that distributor we can feel more assured that their The Reckless Moment still appears to be top dog for that Ophuls/Noir gem. Fulci's City of the Living Dead has a following that isn't going anywhere and the Blu-ray is definitive. I've seen Passion and Poetry - The Ballad of Sam Peckinpah and can support Brian's opinion - targeted more to fans of the enigmatic director. The Warner Archive is still titillating our film desires with Crime School and the subversive The Boy With Green Hair. We may put our digital microscopes under BFI's Flipside Blu-ray of Watkin's Privilege again, Mel Brooks doesn't appear to be getting any demonstrative guffaws and this doesn't sound like the Alice we want.!.......


Privilege BD - Peter Watkins is the supreme master and very nearly the inventor of the pseudo-documentary, which he uses as an unorthodox way of recounting history or projecting contemporary trends into the near-future. This dystopian New Yorker release is about the fascist takeover of Great Britain, with a duped and manipulated messianic rock singer (Paul Jones, lead singer of Manfred Mann in his first film role) used as a political as well as marketing tool. Blu-ray Release Date: May 17th, 2010

Letters from Fontainhas: Three Films by Pedro Costa - One of the most important artists on the international film scene today, Portuguese director Pedro Costa has been steadily building an impressive body of work since the late eighties. And these are the three films that put him on the map: spare, painterly portraits of battered, largely immigrant lives in the slums of Fontainhas, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Lisbon. Hypnotic, controlled works, Ossos, In Vanda’s Room, and Colossal Youth confirm Costa as a provocative new cinematic poet, one who locates beauty in the most unlikely of places. DVD Release Date: March 30th, 2010

Legend of the Tsunami Warrior BD - You’ll be very pleased to learn that this story has nothing whatever to do with tsunamis. I haven’t come up with a suitable title, but “Stingray vs. Black Ray” would have been closer to the mark. The international title "Queens of Langkasuka" might lead you to think there is more than one queen in play. There isn't. But there are princesses of some importance, so perhaps the Thai's don't make the same distinction as we in the West. Blu-ray Release date: May 11th, 2010

High Anxiety BD - Brooks plays Dr. Richard Thorndyke, a psychiatrist with a serious case of acrophobia, who arrives at the Psycho-Neurotic Institute for the Very, Very Nervous as its new director. Victoria Brisbane (Madeline Kahn) is the daughter of one of its inmates locked away in the hospital’s roach motel. Victoria believes that her father is not insane and tries to convince Thorndyke that the hospital is holding him there for some clandestine purpose. Dr. Montague (Harvey Korman), who has a penchant for whips and chains, is wonderfully transparent as the villain of the piece. Look for director Barry Levinson standing in for Norman Bates. Release date: May 11th, 2010

History of the World- Part 1 BD - The childish bathroom humor that seeped into High Anxiety ripens to maturity in this vulgar, R-Rated disaster of a movie that, despite itself, manages some of Brook's funniest moments. Brooks covers the history of mankind from caveman to the French Revolution, with some segments hardly a minute in length, two others closer to half an hour. Sid Caesar is funny as the caveman leader. Mel Brooks is not funny as Moses who walks over his best line as he delivers the fifteen commandments to the Israelites. Madeline Kahn is Roman Empress Nympho (that says it all). Pamela Stephenson is a reluctant succulent willing to do anything to get Louis XVI to let her father out of the Bastille. Harvey Korman is the lecherous Count de Monet. Orson Welles is bored as the Narrator. I think that much of the movie would have played better as 1 or 2-panel cartoons. By this time Brooks had become lazy as director. Blu-ray Release date: May 11th, 2010

Robin Hood - Men in Tights BD - Well, Mel, it's been quite a climb, sort of like the one by Dante and Virgil. He started with the likes of The Producers, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein and ended with Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Itself a parody of the Reynolds/Costner Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Brook's final movie to date is a better vehicle for sending up, or hommaging, or whatever, than To Be or Not To Be - this much is certain. I like the title and the line by the generally underrated Cary Elwes ("Unlike some other Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent.") A couple of the supporting actors are worth our time: Roger Rees as the Sheriff of Rottingham and the awesome Tracey Ullman as Latrine, the ugliest witch on the planet with a yen for Prince John. Blu-ray Release date: May 11th, 2010

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, from the Lewis Carroll classic, is a major disappointment. Superior stylistic settings and often terrific process effects are largely wasted by the limp, lifeless pacing of adapter-director William Sterling. DVD Release Date: March 8th, 2010

Passion and Poetry - The Ballad of Sam Peckinpah - Mike Siegel's "Passion & Poetry: The Ballad of Sam Peckinpah" takes its viewers on monumental two-hour tour of the life and works of Sam Peckinpah. Peckinpah, now perhaps equally remembered for both his work and violent imagery than his name brings to mind, has of course been the subject of many biographical works, which is why his most zealous followers may find little new information here. Yes, we do hear the same old nuggets of the meaning behind the violence and his tempestuous relationship with his female leads, but we do also get some anecdotes that even Peckinpah aficionados will likely find novel. Even on top of this, Siegel includes interviews with those close to the director that offer a revisionist account of the tortured and sometimes brutal life story that has become the dominant narrative of his life. DVD Release Date: August 14th, 2009

Picnic at Hanging Rock BD - Twenty years after it swept Australia into the international film spotlight, Peter Weir's stunning 1975 masterpiece remains as ineffable as the unanswerable mystery at its core. A Valentine's Day picnic at an ancient volcanic outcropping turns to disaster for the residents of Mrs. Appleyard's school when a few young girls inexplicably vanish on Hanging Rock. A lyrical, meditative film charged with suppressed longings. Blu-ray Release Date: May 2010

By Brakhage BD - Working completely outside the mainstream, the wildly prolific, visionary Stan Brakhage made more than 350 films over a half century. Challenging all taboos in his exploration of “birth, sex, death, and the search for God,” he has turned his camera on explicit lovemaking, childbirth, even autopsy. Many of his most famous works pursue the nature of vision itself and transcend the act of filming. Some, including the legendary Mothlight, were made without using a camera at all, as he pioneered the art of making images directly on film, by drawing, painting, and scratching. Criterion is proud to present twenty-six masterworks by Stan Brakhage. Blu-ray Release Date: May 25th, 2010

The Reckless Moment - Having concealed her daughter's accidental killing of her seedy older lover, upper middle class housewife Bennett finds herself being blackmailed by a loan shark; fortunately for her, the man he sends - small-time crook and loner Mason - becomes infatuated with Bennett, and ends up killing his partner. Ophüls' noir melodrama, like his previous film, Caught, can be seen as a subtle, subversive critique of American ambitions and class-structures: in committing the moral and legal transgression of concealing a corpse, Bennett is merely protecting the comfort and respectability of her family life, and the irony is that Mason's self-sacrifice, made on her behalf, simply serves to preserve the status quo that has relegated him to the role of social outcast. This sense of waste, however, is implied rather than emphasized by Ophüls' elegant, low key direction, which counterpoints the stylization of Burnett Guffey's shadowy photography with long, mobile takes that stress the everyday reality of the milieu. A marvelous, tantalizing thriller, it also features never-better performances from Mason and Bennett. Carlotta DVD Release Date: April 7th, 2010

The Boy With Green Hair - Made in the hopeful post-World War II era that produced such classics of social conscience as Gentlemen’s Agreement, Pinky and Home of the Brave, this provocative film is a fable for its time – and ours. It tells the supernatural-tinged story of an orphan who finds a safe haven in small-town America…until the day his hair turns green. Then the townfolk turn against him, frightened by the change they cannot understand. A call for tolerance, an inspiring statement that “different” doesn’t mean “threatening,” The Boy with Green Hair boasts a fine cast (Robert Ryan, Pat O’Brien, Dean Stockwell), a popular theme song (Nature Boy) and the feature-film debut of director Joseph Losey (The Servant, The Go-Between). DVD Release Date: December 1st, 2009

Crime School - Out of the frying pan into the inferno for Frankie, Squirt, Goofy, Spike and the rest of their pals. They’ve been grabbed off slum streets and sent to reform school. There, they’ll be changed. Brutally changed into hardened criminals unless a compassionate defender stands up for them. One year after his corrosive influence on slum kids as Baby Face Martin in Dead End, Humphrey Bogart portrays a champion of wayward boys in this social-conscience movie. Playing the boys: Dead End’s Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Billy Halop and more, beginning their memorable string of Warner Bros. Dead End Kids films that includes Angels with Dirty Faces and the Crime School remake Hell’s Kitchen. DVD Release Date: August 4th, 2009

Eclipse 20 - Shaw on Film - The hugely influential, Nobel Prize–winning critic and playwright George Bernard Shaw was notoriously reluctant to allow his writing to be adapted for the cinema. Yet thanks to the persistence of Hungarian producer Gabriel Pascal, Shaw finally agreed to collaborate on a series of screen versions of his witty, socially minded plays, starting with the Oscar-winning Pygmalion. The three other films that resulted from this famed alliance, Major Barbara, Caesar and Cleopatra, and Androcles and the Lion, long overshadowed by the sensation of Pygmalion, are gathered here for the first time on DVD. These clever, handsomely mounted entertainments star such luminaries of the big screen as Vivien Leigh, Claude Rains, Wendy Hiller, and Rex Harrison. DVD Release Date: February 23rd, 2010

Tooth Fairy BD - Perhaps it's that broad smile, so unexpected from a man the size of a small mountain and twice as strong, but there's something very endearing about this movie that transcends cliché. And speaking of smiles – or, rather, grins – there's Stephen Merchant (The Office in the U.K.), who looks like a character right out Dr. Seuss. Merchant plays Tracy, a fairy with a mildly spiteful attitude about his job, probably because he suffers from wings envy. He hasn't got 'em. Never did. Isn't likely to get them. Blu-ray Release date: May 4th, 2010

Ninja Assassin - The film wastes no time getting to what it does best - wall to wall action sequences that are often gory. The most surprising aspect of this film is that is does a pretty good job of building the back story of the ninja assassin character named Raizo. Even though the plot deals with government cover ups and the Europol agent named Mika Coretti plays an integral part to the evolution of the story at hand. The real meat and potatoes of this film is Raizo's quest for revenge against his former mentor (a plot device that anyone familiar enough with martial arts can easily appreciate). DVD Release Date: March 16th, 2010

Diamonds of the Night - Another outstanding example of Czech New Wave cinema, DIAMONDS OF THE NIGHT was directed in 1964 by the 27-year-old Jan Nemec and based on the writings of Holocaust survivor Arnost Lustig. Running just over an hour, the film compresses four days in the lives of two Jewish boys (Ladislav Jansky and Antonin Kumbera) who, while being transferred to a concentration camp, jump from the transport and escape into the woods. Physically and mentally exhausted, hungry, lost, and desperate, they scrounge for food and shelter and are later chased and caught by a group of old men, only to be released. As their fatigue increases, the boys begin to hallucinate, imagining that the trees are falling down on them or that swarms of ants are crawling on their bodies. Perhaps even more impressive than the startling visual style--there is much hand-held camerawork, and a sense of realism or, as Nemec would call it, "dream realism"--is the sound or the lack thereof. DIAMONDS OF THE NIGHT is practically without dialog, and there are long stretches in which nothing is heard but the ticking of a clock or the sound of breathing. DVD Release Date: May 10th, 2010

City of the Living Dead BD - When Father Thomas (Fabrizio Javone) hangs himself, the sacrilegious act causes the Gates of Hell to open beneath the Dunwich cemetery. Mary (Catriona MacColl), a medium, witnesses this event during a séance in New York and apparently dies of shock but wakes up to find herself entombed in a buried coffin. Fortunately, meddling reporter Peter Bell (Christopher George) comes to her rescue (although he nearly kills her in the process) and together they hit the road in search of Dunwhich to shut the Gates of Hell before All Saints' Day when the dead will walk the earth but strange (read: gory) things are already beginning to happen in the town since Father Thomas killed himself.
