ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I was blown away this week by Flicker Alley's Dziga Vertov: The Man with the Movie Camera and Other Newly-Restored Works Blu-ray - our Feature of the month for June. The 2014 restoration is so impressive and the 3-hour+ supplements add further value. Also getting our highest recommendation is Criterion's Blu-ray of Terry Gilliam's The Fisher King. A masterpiece film in an essential Blu-ray package. Also deserved of top billing is Jaromil Jires' Valerie and Her Week of Wonders also on Criterion Blu-ray - looking and sounding significantly superior to the previous DVDs. fans of Edgar Reitz's Heimat will appreciate the prequel Home from Home: Chronicle of a Vision on Blu-ray from Artificial Eye. Fred Zinnemann's A Man For All Seasons is a powerful historical drama - now available on Blu-ray from Twilight Time. I was also impressed by their 1080P package of Mississippi Burning - debatably director Alan Parker's best film. The Onion Field and the Kino Lorber Blu-ray is stacked with a commentary, interview and documentary. Great film. It's easy to fall in love with Olive film's three Pam Grier Blaxploitation Blu-rays; Coffy, Foxy Brown and Friday Foster - all are bare-bones but wonderful films to visit via a triple feature. As far as genre's go I thought Luciano Ercoli's Killer Cop was one of the most enjoyable examples of “Poliziotteschi” I've yet seen - and now on Blu-ray from Raro. Jonathan Demme's A Master Builder sports a spanking new Criterion Blu-ray transfer although the film's artsy-leaning may limit it potential audience. William Friedkin's The Boys in the Band is a very good film based on the first play to deal honestly with gay urban life and is available on Kino Lorber Blu-ray. Perhaps The Land That Time Forgot's most desirable feature is rooted in its nostalgia - another Doug McClure creature-feature on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber. The 1977 version of The Island of Dr Moreau has its weaknesses but the storyline has a strange appeal and curious fans will be tempted by the Blu-ray. On DVD this week, Eric covered Second Run's impressive Polish Cinema Classics Vol 3 with Marek Piwowski's The Cruise (1970), Krzysztof Zanussi's Camouflage (1976) and Wojciech Marczewski's Shivers (1981). It is our Feature DVD for the June. “Those gates only open three times. When you come in, when you've served your time, or when you're dead!” - Gallagher (Charles Bickford) to Joe Collins (Burt Lancaster) on prison life


Dziga Vertov: The Man with the Movie Camera and Other Newly-Restored Works BD - This kaleidoscopic city symphony-- conjoining Moscow, Kiev, Odessa into one metametropolis-- may be the most densely edited movie ever made. Vertov matches the rhythms of a single day to the cycle of life, and the mechanisms of moviemaking to the logic of industrial production.... The Man With the Movie Camera is at once a Whitmanesque documentary-portrait of the Soviet people, a reflexive essay on cinematic representation, and an ecstatic ode to human labor as a process of transformation. Blu-ray Release date: June 2nd, 2015


Friday Foster BD - Based on the syndicated newspaper comic strip of the same name, Grier stars as intrepid photojournalist Friday Foster. No sooner has she been warned by her boss that her personal involvement in the stories she’s shooting will not end happily, Friday witnesses the attempted assassination of a prominent African-American figure and the murder of a friend. Blu-ray Release date: June 9th, 2015

The Fisher King BD - A fairy tale grounded in poignant reality, the magnificent, Manhattan-set The Fisher King, by Terry Gilliam, features Jeff Bridges and Robin Williams in two of their most brilliant roles. Bridges plays a former radio shock jock reconstructing his life after a scandal, and Williams is a homeless man on a quest for the Holy Grail—which he believes to be hidden somewhere on the Upper East Side. Unknowingly linked by their pasts, the two men aid each other on a fanciful journey to redemption. This singular American odyssey features a witty script by Richard La Gravenese, evocative cinematography by Roger Pratt, and superb supporting performances by Amanda Plummer and an Oscar-winning Mercedes Ruehl, all harnessed by Gilliam into a humane, funny modern-day myth. Blu-ray Release date: June 23rd, 2015

Foxy Brown BD - When Foxy Brown's undercover-agent boyfriend is gunned down on the orders of evil drug kingpins, she stops at nothing to exact a thrillingly brutal revenge. This is one of the all-time great blaxploitation films, pulling out all the stops at a time long before anyone thought of inventing political correctness. Blu-ray Release date: June 9th, 2015

Coffy BD - With Coffy Pam Grier was catapulted to stardom and iconic status following solid roles in earlier chicks in chains films. Here she plays nurse Coffy Coffin seeking vigilante justice when her little sister is hospitalised by a smack pusher. Coffy uses her body, bullets and blades to get justice, working her way to the top of the criminal ring. But as she nears the top she finds the level of corruption is closer to home than she thinks. Blu-ray Release date: June 9th, 2015

Valerie and Her Week of Wonders BD - A girl on the verge of womanhood finds herself in a sensual fantasyland of vampires, witchcraft, and other threats in this eerie and mystical movie daydream. Valerie and Her Week of Wonders serves up an endlessly looping, nonlinear fairy tale, set in a quasi-medieval landscape. Ravishingly shot, enchantingly scored, and spilling over with surreal fancies, this enticing phantasmagoria from director Jaromil Jireš (The Joke) is among the most beautiful oddities of the Czechoslovak New Wave. Blu-ray Release Date: June 30th, 2015

Killer Cop BD - A great example of “Poliziotteschi” (Italo-crime) with a plot based upon the 1969 Piazza Fontana bombing in Milan, Killer Cop begins with an explosion in a hotel killing dozens of innocent people. Police inspector, Matteo Rolandi is a witness to the massacre and the suspect, Franco Ludovisi is a young political activist. Ludovisi, even though the General Attorney Di Federico puts him under protection, is shot and killed. Behind this event there seems to be a conspiracy aimed at destabilizing the political social scene, but despite the fear instilled by the bombers, inspector Rolandi continues his investigation, strongly determined to find the people behind this brutal terrorist act. Blu-ray Release date: June 2nd, 2015

Mississippi Burning BD - Parker's film, loosely based in fact, goes for the gut rather than the head in its assessment of Deep South racism. When three civil rights activists disappear from a small Mississippi town in 1964, the FBI responds (two of the missing men were white) by sending in agents Dafoe and Hackman, the former a by-the-book Yankee determined never to violate the rights of the interrogated, the latter a local boy who opines that to deal with scum you must sink to gutter level. Scum the villains certainly are: ugly, ignorant rednecks devoted to the Klan, and all too happy to punish blacks who protest against injustice or blab to interfering outsiders. In the film, the blacks are almost without exception seen as mute victims, and typically for a film by an Englishman, race hatred is defined in terms of class and economic envy. But Hackman is excellent, especially in his surprisingly tender scenes with McDormand, wife of sadistic deputy Dourif; and for once, Parker directs without depending on flashy visual tropes. The relative anonymity is a plus; only the end falls foul of hyperbole, and it's arguably the director's most controlled film to date. Blu-ray Release date: May, 2015

The Onion Field BD - Joseph Wambaugh's The Onion Field is based on an actual 1963 case. L.A. plainclothesmen Karl Hattinger John Savage and Ian Campbell Ted Danson routinely investigate a pair of suspicious types, Greg Powell James Woods and Jimmy Smith Franklin Seales. Unexpectedly, Powell pulls a gun on the cops, then forces them into a deserted onion field, where he kills Campbell in cold blood. Hattinger manages to escape, and through his eyewitness account, Powell and Smith are arrested. But that is not that. Thanks to their knowledge and manipulation of the quicksilver legal system, Powell and Smith manage to evade prosecution for years. Meanwhile, Hattinger goes through hell on earth, tortured with guilt over the fact that he lived while Campbell died so ignominiously. Blu-ray Release date: June 16th, 2015

Home from Home: Chronicle of a Vision BD - The most sublime case of monomania in European cinema, director Edgar Reitz has dedicated much of his life to recreating modern German history on screen. Heimat, his 1984 TV series, ran for more than 15 hours, tracing the fortunes of a family from its rural Prussian roots, starting in 1919; its title, meaning homeland, reclaimed the term from the disreputable connotations it had acquired in the Nazi era. Reitz later made a second tranche covering the 1960s in detail, then a third series which began with the fall of the Berlin Wall. If you include the female-focused “annexe”, Heimat Fragments, that makes 54 hours – now rounded up to 58 with the addition of Home From Home, Reitz’s prequel to the series. Blu-ray Release date: June 15th, 2015

The Island of Dr Moreau (1977) BD - In The Island of Dr. Moreau, which is based on a novella by H.G. Wells, Braddock Michael York is a decent young Englishman who has unaccountably been saved from being thrown overboard from a ship sailing in a remote area of the Pacific by the mysterious Dr. Montgomery Nigel Davenport. Dr. Montgomery is accompanying a cargo of animals destined for a tropical island. At first an "honored guest" prisoner on that island, he is finds his contacts with the natives increasingly disturbing, for they are not like any men he has ever seen. Eventually it transpires that these "men" are experimental reconstructions from wild animals made by a particularly sinister scientist, Dr. Moreau Burt Lancaster. He feels that he is in danger from the animal/men and from Dr. Moreau himself and does not know where to turn. This story was also filmed in 1933 as The Island of Lost Souls, starring Charles Laughton as the monomaniacal Dr. Moreau and was remade yet again in 1996 with Marlon Brando in the title role. Blu-ray Release date: June 23rd, 2015

A Master Builder BD - A Master Builder unites Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme with two of American theatre and cinema's most ingenious provocateurs, André Gregory and Wallace Shawn. It is based on Gregory's near-legendary theatrical production of Shawn's adaptation of Ibsen's Master Builder Solness. Halvard Solness (Wallace Shawn), a successful and egomaniacal architect who spent a lifetime bullying everyone around him, now faces his own mortality. When Hilde (Lisa Joyce), a mysterious young woman, comes to visit, the once dominating, controlling and narcissistic Solness finds himself revived in every possible way. Intense, intimate and painful, A Master Builder is a witty, mystical and psychologically complex interpretation of Ibsen's masterpiece. Blu-ray Release date: June 16th, 2015

The Land That Time Forgot BD - In this low budget fantasy adventure from Britain, based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' 1918 science fiction novel, a German submarine holding American prisoners of war during World War I, veers off course. Lost at sea, the submarine empties its fuel supply and runs aground on an uncharted island in the Antarctic. The survivors find that the island contains an ancient oil refinery that can be used to fuel the submarine. The only problem is that the group of Germans and Americans have to battle gigantic dinosaurs and primitive cavemen as they make their way through the island. The Land That Time Forgot was enough of a success to spawn a 1976 sequel called The People That Time Forgot. Blu-ray Release date: June 16th, 2015

A Man For All Seasons BD - A Man for All Seasons won the 1966 Academy Award for Best Picture. It tells the true story of Sir Thomas More whose steadfast refusal to acknowledge the supremacy of King Henry VIII's Church of England over the Roman Catholic Pope eventually cost him his life. It is a story that, were it not historically documented, would seem unbelievable. Paul Scofield gives a brilliant performance in the lead role. There isn't a false note from him in the entire movie. He very clearly demonstrates one man's dignified refusal to compromise his beliefs. To him the issue is a matter of his very soul's fate and he sacrifices everything to save that. Blu-ray Release date: May, 2015

The Boys in the Band BD - In 1968, an Off-Broadway play about a birthday party attended by a group of homosexual men made theatrical history by becoming the first play to deal honestly with gay urban life. The party brings together a group of misfits that have become clichés -- the self-loathing alcoholic, the bitchy queen, the flamboyant sissy, the stud-for-hire - for an evening of truth-telling. The film version of The Boys in the Band (1970), starring the play's original cast, has also become a landmark in the history of gays in film. Like many historical artifacts, it now seems dated in its attitudes. But the film's significance is undoubted, and its wicked wit is still intact. Blu-ray Release Date: June 16th, 2015

Polish Cinema Classics Vol 3 - A third volume of our acclaimed POLISH CINEMA CLASSICS series. Second Run DVD presents three celebrated works of Polish Cinema, fully restored and presented from new HD digital transfers with restored picture and sound with new English subtitle translations. All three films are released for the first time ever in the UK. The Cruise (1970), Camouflage (1976) and Shivers (1981). DVD Release Date: May 25th, 2015
