ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): This past week I was very impressed with Top of the Lake - this is a fabulous series and the Blu-ray package, our FEATURE Blu-ray, has immense value. Noir aficionados will rejoice at Max Ophuls' Caught on Blu-ray from Olive films. It is always a reason to celebrate with a new Criterion Blu-ray of a Robert Bresson film - Pickpocket is laced with the director's profound style. A must-own. The Lost Moment is also an essential - "the ghostly web of shifting identities and sexual tensions is superbly spun" - now on Blu-ray. More Universal 50's sci-fi come to Blu-ray with Tarantula - an effective creature feature merging mad scientist and mutant. Criterion brings David Cronenberg's sci-fi horror film Scanners to Blu-ray and the director's fans will be pleased with the extensive package. I'm a huge fan of Monte Walsh - 'a stunning debut Western for cameraman-turned-director William A. Fraker' - and it's now on region FREE Blu-ray our of Germany. Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison is an excellent film although it has a few issues on Twilight Time Blu-ray. Masters of Cinema release a region 'B' Blu-ray of Hal Ashby's quirky and memorable Harold and Maude. Film fans will find great interest in Jodorowsky's Dune - one of the great epics ... that never was. On DVD I covered two strong Noirs; Beyond the Forest with Bette Davis and Anthony Mann's The Black Book - both on weak SD transfers. Eric covered the highly-lauded The Odd Way Home, a documentaries entitled Ride Report, Kids Rights and Invasion of the Scream Queens - as well as the Asian comedy Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?. In case I don't say it enough - thanks for allowing me to send you this newsletter!.


Monte Walsh BD - Monte Walsh is an aging cowboy facing the ending days of the Wild West era. As barbed wire and railways steadily eliminate the need for the cowboy Monte and his friends are left with fewer and fewer options. New work opportunities are available to them but the freedom of the open prairie is what they long for. Eventually they all must say goodbye to the lives they knew and try to make a new start. Blu-ray Release Date: March 31st, 2014

Tarantula BD - This 50's sci-fi staple has all the expected clichÚs... from the small isolated town (Desert Rock in rural Arizona) to the skeptical Sheriff (Nestor Paiva) - from the suspicious young doctor (John Agar) linked to the ultra feminine heroine (Mara Corday). Plus where would we be without the loner experimenting professor (Leo G. Carroll) whose scientific, but well meaning, intrusion in nature's scheme produces the titled monster. The effects are better than average as the Tarantula was an actual spider manipulated on miniature sets with air jets. This is hokey of course, but it is still fabulous stuff - director Arnold, who brought us The Incredible Shrinking Man among many others, really had these B-movies nailed. The script is competent and the acting believable enough. Ohh... and yes that Jet Squadron Leader is a young Clint Eastwood. Blu-ray Release Date: June 12th, 2014

Scanners BD - The title of this David Cronenberg sci-fi horror film refers to a group of people who have telekinetic powers that allow... them to read minds and give them the ability to make other people's heads explode. The children of a group of women who took an experimental tranquilizer during their pregnancies, the scanners are now adults and have become outcasts from society. But Darryl (Michael Ironside) decides to create an army of scanners to take over the world. The only person who can stop him is his brother Cameron (Stephen Lack), who wants to forget that he was ever a scanner. Blu-ray Release date: July 15th, 2014

Pickpocket BD - Robert Bresson’s masterful investigation of crime and redemption tells the story of the young, arrogant Michel (Martin LaSalle), who spends his days learning the art of picking pockets in the streets, subway cars, and train stations of Paris. As Michel grows bolder and more adept, so too grows his fear that his luck is about to run out. But despite the pleadings of his sick mother and the lovely Jeanne to return to the world of the honorable, he is consumed by his compulsion to steal. Tautly choreographed and stylistically rigorous, Pickpocket reveals Bresson at his enigmatic, virtuosic best. Blu-ray Release date: July 15th, 2014

Jodorowsky's Dune BD - In 1975, director Alejandro Jodorowsky began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12-year-old son alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador DalÝ, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including H.R. Giger and Jean “Moebius” Giraud, Jodorowsky’s adaptation of the classic sci-fi novel DUNE was poised to change cinema forever. Through interviews with legends and luminaries including H.R. Giger (artist, ALIEN), Gary Kurtz (producer, STAR WARS EPISODES IV ' V) and Nicolas Winding Refn (director, DRIVE), and an intimate and honest conversation with Jodorowsky, director Frank Pavich’s film finally unearths the full saga of ‘The Greatest Movie Never Made’. Blu-ray Release date: July 8th, 2014

The Lost Moment BD - A remarkably effective adaptation of Henry James' The Aspern Papers, closer to the shivery ambience of The Innocents than to the oh-so-discreet charm of Daisy Miller or The Europeans. An opportunist publisher (Cummings) lodges incognito in the Venetian house of a long-dead poet's lover, hoping to find the literary treasure trove of letters hidden there, and gradually comes under the spells of the past incarnate - the 105-year-old former loved one (Moorehead) and her schizophrenic niece (Hayward). The ghostly web of shifting identities and sexual tensions is superbly spun, making one regret that Martin Gabel subsequently confined himself to an acting career. Blu-ray Release date: July 8th, 2014

Caught BD - A melodrama and thriller with a very dark edge, director Max Ophuls' Caught (1949) centers on a lovely, romantic young woman Leonora Eames (Barbara Bel Geddes) who wants nothing more than to fall in love. But her friends are more pragmatic, and encourage Eames to find a rich husband. Her first step toward that goal, on the advice of her roommate, is to enroll in the Dorothy Dale School of Charm where she learns how to entrap a man from the proper social station. Blu-ray Release date: July 8th, 2014

Top of the Lake BD - A 12 year old girl, walks chest deep into the freezing waters of a South Island lake in New Zealand. She is five months pregnant and won’t say who the father is. Then she disappears. Robin Griffin is a gutsy but inexperienced detective called in to investigate. But as Robin becomes more and more obsessed with the search for Tui, she slowly begins to realise that finding Tui is tantamount to finding herself - a self she has kept well hidden. Available in beautiful high definition and set against one of the most amazing and untouched landscapes left on the planet, Top of the Lake is a powerful and haunting story about our search for happiness where the dream of paradise attracts it dark twin, the fall. Starring: Elizabeth Moss, Holy Hunter and Peter Mullan Written and Directed by Jane Campion. Blu-ray Release date: August 19th, 2013

Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison BD - A two-person character study directed by John Huston, Heaven Knows Mr. Allison stars Robert Mitchum as a World War II Marine sergeant and Deborah Kerr as a Roman Catholic nun. Both nun and sergeant are marooned on a South Pacific island, hemmed in by surrounding Japanese troops. Mitchum does his best to make the nun's ordeal less painful, but is torn by his growing love for her. Kerr is equally fond of Mitchum, but refuses to renounce her vows. Their unrealized ardor mellows into mutual respect as they struggle to survive before help arrives. Based on a novel by Charles K. Shaw, Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison was coproduced by Eugene Frenke, who later filmed a low-budget variation on the story, The Nun and the Sergeant (62), which starred Frenke's wife Anna Sten. Blu-ray Release date: June, 2014

Harold and Maude BD - With the idiosyncratic American fable Harold and Maude, countercultural director Hal Ashby fashioned what would become the cult classic of its era. Working from a script by Colin Higgins, Ashby tells the story of the emotional and romantic bond between a death-obsessed young man (Bud Cort) from a wealthy family and a devil-may-care, bohemian octogenarian (Ruth Gordon). Equal parts gallows humor and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with the ones that separate people by class, gender, and age, and it features indelible performances and a remarkable soundtrack by Cat Stevens. Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Release date: July 14th, 2014

Invasion of the Scream Queens - Invasion of the Scream Queens takes you back to a time when the term ""Scream Queen"" was brand new and promised the hottest actresses in the best horror movies. Directed by cult horror icon Donald Farmer (Demon Queen, Savage Vengeance) and featuring interviews with legendary Scream Queens Michelle Bauer, Brinke Stevens, Mary Woronov, Melissa Moore, Elizabeth Kaitan and many more. Get an inside look at what it takes to be a scream queen and hear the behind-the-scenes stories about the making of some of the most classic horror films of our time, including The Hills Have Eyes, I Spit on Your Grave, Slumber Party Massacre, and many more. All the babes, the boobs and the blood are on full display here in this classic, rare document from the heyday of horror. DVD Release Date: June 17th, 2014

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? - In this madcap and lighthearted comedic romp, introverted optometrist Weichung begins to question his marriage with his wife Feng upon learning of her desire to have another baby. At his sisters engagement party, Weichung bumps into an old friend, Stephen, a wedding photographer who, though also married, is living the high life of a younger, single gay man. When Stephen teases Weichung for his newly straight-laced lifestyle, dormant emotions are awakened in Weichung, setting him off on a quest for true romance and desire. DVD Release Date: July 8th, 2014

Kids Rights - Adopting a child means undergoing rigorous assessment marked by bureaucracy, paperwork and often, an outlay of cash. Filmmakers Michael Dudko and Olga Rudnieva ask themselves if they are fit for parenthood after they personally witness Sir Elton John s and David Furnish s failure to adopt. Their investigation of the regulations, cultural prejudices, and child trafficking policies behind the process takes them from the slums of Ukraine, through China, and the US. They speak with prospective parents, social workers, lawyers, psychologists, and adoption agencies to find a flawed system that allows millions of orphans to languish in foster care and learn that children lack the most basic human rights. DVD Release Date: May 20th, 2014

The Black Book - Directed by Anthony Mann and starring Robert Cummings, Richard Hart, Richard Basehart, and Arlene Dahl, the film is set during the French Revolution where Maximilien Robespierre (Richard Basehart), already the most powerful man in France, wants to become the nation s dictator. Plotters seek to bring him down and end his bloodthirsty Reign of Terror. He further fuels the panic of upheaval in 1794 France by desperately looking for his black book, a death list of those marked by him for the guillotine and a key to help him eventually emerge as the country's dictator. He hopes that his agents will recover it, but if it falls into the wrong hands, it would mean his political ruin and death. DVD Release Date: June 24th, 2014

Beyond the Forest - "What a dump!" That's the classic line delivered by Bette Davis at the halfway point of Beyond the Forest, her final Warner Bros. effort of the 1940s. Some Davis devotees feel as though this vituperative utterance is the high point of an otherwise turgid melodrama; others consider the line a succinct assessment of the entire film. Based on a best-selling novel by Stuart Engstrand, the film stars Davis as Rosa Moline, a small-town girl with big-city ambitions. Trapped in a dull marriage to just-getting-by lawyer Lewis Moline (Joseph Cotten), Rosa plots and plans to sexually entrap millionaire industrialist Neil Latimer (David Brian). That Rosa's scheme is doomed from the start is telegraphed at every juncture by Max Steiner's sledgehammer musical score (few will ever want to hear the song "Chicago" again after this). Hampered by the censorship standards of the era, the film is prevented from being as frank as the novel; in one scene, for example, Rosa is obviously visiting an abortionist, but the sign on the door reads "Psychiatrist." A standard entry in most film historians' "Worst Movies" lists (even Davis herself hated it), Beyond the Forest is rather entertaining in its own schlocky fashion. DVD Release Date: June 11th, 2013

The Odd Way Home - Having had enough of being knocked around by her boyfriend, wouldbe singer Maya (Rumer Willis, HOSTAGE) takes to the road with her guitar, her pills, and her boyfriend's gun. Breaking down in the middle of nowhere, she seeks assistance at a house only to discover the elderly owner has expired on the sofa. She decides to steal the old woman's van, not realizing that it is the home of her grandson Duncan (Chris Marquette, FREDDY VS. JASON), an autistic young man who works in a nearby convenience store. Unable to abandon him on the side of the road, Maya - having discovered a stack of uncashed checks addressed to Duncan - decides to deliver him to his estranged father. DVD Release Date: June 24th, 2014

Ride Report - When filmmakers Tiernan Turner and Matt Kendall decide to go to the world famous Carnaval, they embark on a 10,000 mile, cross-continental road trip of a lifetime from Las Vegas to Rio de Janeiro on nothing but Suzuki motorcycles and the help of the burgeoning, international social network of adventure riders and couch-surfers. Along the way they make life-changing connections with strangers and fellow travelers, proving despite all of our fears, the world is filled with kind and generous people. But as they encounter dangerous terrain, mechanical failures, and logistical problems, they must find their strength in order to make it to the festival on time. DVD Release Date: June 10th, 2014
