ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): While the consensus may be that Arrow's Blu-ray transfer of Robert Altman's 3 Women may not be as theatrically accurate as their Criterion counterpart, I'm still placing it as my number one pick this week as the presentation, and David Thompson supplement, significantly changed my perception of the film. The Arrow has a lot of value, IMO. Criterion's Blu-ray of Carroll Ballard's The Black Stallion offers a wonderful family masterpiece of a stunningly attractive film in 1080P package augmented by worthwhile extras. I'll unfairly lump House of Cards Season Three and Homeland Season Four together as the two best TV series ever produced with addictive Blu-ray viewing. I can't say enough about the entertainment value. I was surprisingly impressed with the Polish 70's film Potop Redivivus in a stellar, English-friendly, Blu-ray release. WOW. In a totally different direction, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, transferred to Blu-ray by Arrow in the UK, retains it huge cult status. With nostalgia now a factor - this charming, fast-paced and fun sci-fi-satire continues to gain momentum since its release on videotape in the 80s. The intense, apocalyptic-bound romantic thriller Miracle Mile, now on a stacked Blu-ray from Kino Lorber, encapsulates another niche of an appreciative 80's fanbase. Cemetery Without Crosses, a marvelous Leone-homage western is one of the better pasta efforts I have seen in years. The Arrow Blu-ray is top-shelf. One of the more dramatic comparisons from SD to HD is for Peter Greenaway's Drowning By Numbers with the pink-leaning UK Blu-ray wiping the floor with the old DVD. Masterful Wojtek Smarzowski’s The Mighty Angel is a fierce, uncompromising look at alcoholism and is, thankfully, available on region FREE Blu-ray. Michael Ritchie's Prime Cut is a similarly hard-nosed exploration, but a unique take on gang-related crime and stars Lee Marvin and Gene Hackman metaphorically butting heads. Burning Bush is a fascinating and educational 2013 three-part mini-series created for HBO Europe by Polish director Agnieszka Holland and is yet another Eastern European Blu-ray package now accessible to western audiences. Report to the Commissioner is a cop-thriller stacked with stars Michael Moriarty, Yaphet Kotto, Susan Blakely, Hector Elizondo, William Devane and a young Richard Gere viewable on Kino Lorber Blu-ray. DVD reviews next week - enjoy your Summer! Remember "Happiness Must Be Earned" (end writing in the stars of a nighttime sky) The Thief of Bagdad (1924)


Homeland Season Four BD - Crack CIA agent Carrie Mathison plays by her own rules when it comes to protecting the U.S. from terrorist attacks. Her uncanny intuition, dogged determination, and gift for persuasion helped her identify Nicholas Brody as a terrorist and convert him to an ally. She also headed the operation to capture and kill al-Qaeda mastermind Abu Nazir, and turned the man responsible for the CIA bombing, Majid Javadi, into an invaluable U.S. asset. Along the way, she fell in love with Brody and became pregnant with his child, which made his arrest and execution that much more traumatic for her. Now with a baby to raise and a fast-tracked career as an overseas station chief, Carrie is forced to make difficult choices about the direction she wants her life to take. Meanwhile, Saul Berenson, Carrie's long-time, no-nonsense mentor, has been forced into retirement. Will he be able to stay in the intelligence game and keep tabs on his protégé while working for a private security firm in New York? Blu-ray Release date: June 15th, 2015

Burning Bush BD - Burning Bush (Czech: Hořící keř) is a 2013 three-part mini-series created for HBO by Polish director Agnieszka Holland. Based on real characters and events, this haunting drama focuses on the personal sacrifice of a Prague history student, Jan Palach, who set himself on fire in protest against the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1969. Dagmar Burešová, a young female lawyer, became part of his legacy by defending Jan's family in a trial against the communist government, a regime which tried to dishonour Palach's sacrifice, a heroic action for the freedom of Czechoslovakia. Jan and Dagmar's story is one of basic human values, truth, honour, justice and courage. Blu-ray Release date: February, 2015

Miracle Mile BD - A nuclear thriller with a devastating narrative hook. Having arranged to meet a new girlfriend (Winningham) after her night shift at an LA diner, trombone-player and shy romantic Harry (Edwards) oversleeps and misses her. At 4.05 am, he picks up a ringing pay-phone outside the diner, and a voice screams 'It's happening! I can't believe it. We're locked into it...50 minutes and counting'. Is this some late-night freak's joke, or has a chance crossed line given Harry warning of impending nuclear Armageddon? With one deft stroke, writer-director DeJarnatt taps into the nightmare of being the first to know about the (possible) end of the world, and the awesome responsibility of having to communicate this news to others. The patrons of the Miracle Mile diner are understandably sceptical, but with less than an hour to live, Harry's personal priorities come sharply into focus. Cleverly written, authentically staged and sympathetically played, it's brave, uncompromising, and above all, frighteningly believable. Blu-ray Release date: July 28th, 2015

Prime Cut BD - Michael Ritchie, better known for his gentle satires of American social institutions, enters Don Siegel territory in the unusual crime thriller Prime Cut. Lee Marvin is surly collection agent Nick Devlin, who is hired by Chicago racketeer Jake (Eddie Egan) to collect an overdue payment from Kansas cattle baron Mary Ann (yes, Mary Ann!) (Gene Hackman). When Devlin travels west to get Jake's money from Mary Ann, he finds the cattle king mixed up in complex drug deals and pimping wild women -- two of which are Poppy and Violet (Sissy Spacek and Janit Baldwin -- both in their film debuts.) Blu-ray Release date: July 28th, 2015

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension BD - Peter Weller is Buckaroo Banzai, a physicist-neurosurgeon-martial arts master-secret agent-rock star who has just made history with his invention, the Oscillation Overthruster. The Overthruster allows him to travel to the 8th Dimension, but this feat draws the attention of the Red Lectroids, an alien race (led by Christopher Lloyd) who have teamed up with Banzai s nemesis, the deranged Dr Lizardo (John Lithgow). Lizardo and the Red Lectroids are seeking the Overthruster to take over the world and Banzai, with his team of agents/band musicians, The Hong Kong Cavaliers, must stop them before it s too late! Blu-ray Release date: June 1st, 2015

Cemetery Without Crosses BD - A bold and bleak spaghetti Western inspired by the Dollars trilogy and dedicated to Sergio Leone, Cemetery Without Crosses presents a Gallic spin on the spaghetti western and succeeds largely on the strength of Hossein's ability to weave together an overwhelming sense of melancholy with explosive set pieces and Andre Hossein's stellar original score along with Scott Walker's tremendously effective theme song. Hossein shares writing credit for the film with Claude Desailly, though Dario Argento is also noted as having involvement with the film's script (NOTE: Hossein has stated that Argento contributed not more than a couple dozen lines to the script). Originally released under the title The Rope and the Colt, Cemetery Without Crosses is a true tribute to Leone's films and Hossein deserves credit for having crafted a film that remains faithful to Leone's ability to create emotional resonance and outstanding set pieces. Arrow Blu-ray Release date: July 20th-21st, 2015

3 Women BD - In a dusty, under-populated California resort town, Pinky Rose (Sissy Spacek), a naďve and impressionable Southern waif begins her life as a nursing home attendant. There, Pinky finds her role model in fellow nurse "Thoroughly Modern" Millie Lammoreaux (Shelley Duvall), a misguided would-be sophisticate and hopeless devotee of Cosmopolitan and Woman's Day magazines. When Millie accepts Pinky into her home at the Purple Sage singles complex, Pinky's hero-worship evolves into something far stranger and more sinister than either could have anticipated. Featuring brilliant performances from Spacek and Duvall, Robert Altman's dreamlike masterpiece, 3 Women, careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal, resulting in one of the most unusual and compelling films of the 1970s. Blu-ray Release Date: July 13th, 2015

The Mighty Angel BD - Polish cinephiles await Wojtek Smarzowski’s every film as impatiently as cinephiles in the USA wait for, let’s say, Quentin Tarantino’s pictures. Smarzowski is now a trademark of Polish quality cinema that can proudly be exported. He is an auteur. Surprisingly enough, after his latest success with Traffic Department (2013), his newest film The Mighty Angel (2014), an adaptation of a Jerzy Pilch novel, has been met with cold indifference and at times strong revulsion. But while Smarzowski’s newest production is yet another brilliant (yes, brilliant) piece of cinema, the reasons why it is criticised shed some light both on society’s attitude towards alcoholism and on the way in which we idealize the role of director in the collective art of filmmaking. Blu-ray Release date: May, 2015

House of Cards Season 3 BD - In Season 3 of “House of Cards”, President Underwood fights to secure his legacy. Claire wants more than being the first lady. The biggest threat they face is contending with each other. This Emmy-winning original thriller series stars Golden Globe winner Kevin Spacey as ruthless and cunning Francis Underwood, who will stop at nothing to conquer the halls of power in Washington D.C. His secret weapon: his gorgeous, ambitious and equally conniving wife Claire (Golden Globe winner Robin Wright). Blu-ray Release date: July 7th, 2015

Report to the Commissioner BD - This taut, action-loaded thriller set in New York City stars Michael Moriarty (The Stuff) as a naive rookie cop whose youthful idealism thrusts him into an interdepartmental power play leading to the death of another young officer, whose deep undercover work has led her to move in with a handsome drug czar (Tony King, Bucktown). Yaphet Kotto (Midnight Run) is unforgettable as Crunch Blackstone, Moriarty's hardboiled partner. Cult filmmaker Milton Katselas (When You Comin Back, Red Ryder?) directed this realistic police drama, shot on location in the gritty streets of 1970s Manhattan and featuring an incredible cast of stars and future stars that includes Susan Blakely, Hector Elizondo, William Devane, Richard Gere, Vic Tayback and Bob Balaban. Blu-ray Release date: July 7th, 2015

The Black Stallion BD - This remarkable adaptation of Walter Farley’s classic children’s novel by Carroll Ballard (Fly Away Home)—in which an American boy is rescued after a shipwreck off the coast of North Africa by a seemingly untamable wild horse—is a cinematic tour de force. From the crystalline shores of a deserted island in the Arabian Sea to the green grass and dusty roads of 1930s suburban New York, Ballard and director of photography Caleb Deschanel (The Right Stuff) create a film of consistent visual invention and purity, also featuring a winning supporting performance by Mickey Rooney (National Velvet) as a retired jockey and a gorgeous score by Carmine Coppola (The Godfather Part II). Blu-ray Release date: July 14th, 2015

Potop Redivivus BD - Academy Award-nominated, Potop is one of the most popular movies in the Polish cinema. To mark the 40th anniversary of the movie release , the festival brings the new cut of the film, Potop Redivivus. Set during the Swedish invasion of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Potop – based on the 1886 novel of the same name – follows the adventures of the unruly yet patriotic soldier Andrzej Kmicic. Blu-ray Release date: March, 2015

Drowning By Numbers BD - Regarded as one of Greenaways finest, it showcases his unique brand of cinema with beautiful, teasing imagery while perfectly mirroring a literary riddle of murder, morality and sexual solidarity. The director's following, who enjoy his quirky characters, are in their nirvana with this offering. Many may find it tedious and often disjointed. Reactions often vary from strongly like to strongly dislike. Unfortunately for me, I am in the latter camp, but can plainly see how others can be attracted to this form of cinema 'madness'. Ripe with the crossword style appeal (in searching for the numbers), few can argue about the beauty cinematography of the countryside and landscapes. Perhaps Greenaway's most abundantly desirable facet in his films are that they are dissimilar to most everything else existing in movies today. Eclectic in the extreme.
