ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I'm continuously fascinated by my new reaction to films, that I have previously viewed on DVD, seeing them fresh in 1080P resolution. I won't go to the extreme and say it is a totally new experience - although it can often feel that way. It is probably more the improved detail and depth represent a stronger replication of the filmmakers intent. We both consciously and subconsciously become exposed to details that the director imbedded to impact on our perception of his art. I can't imagine the emotional exchange that will transpire with, presently unreleased on Blu-ray, classics by Antonioni, Bresson or Tarkovsky... to name only a few. What a wonderful time to own a Home Theatre! I share this because in the past week I noted this observation more keenly than in the past. The paranoia evident in Frankenheimer's Seconds via the Criterion Blu-ray is a strong example - excellent value and my number 1 pick this week. I had the same 'improved' reaction of Ophuls' The Earrings of Madame de... also on Criterion Blu-ray - masterful. Ditto for Mamoulian's Blood and Sand - the higher resolution elevating the film experience to new heights. And while we are mentioning - Guillermo del Toro's The Devil's Backbone - a beautiful Blu-ray disc - heightened this film's haunting characteristics. Konchalovsky's Runaway Train is a harsh thriller with incredible performances and an amazing Blu-ray package from Arrow Films. Hammer Horror fans will gravitate to Hands of the Ripper on a new Blu-ray from Synapse. Graceland is a well-crafted and memorable thriller. I enjoyed A Late Quartet for its strong performances and glimpse into a rarely seen world. The late 80s comedy/horror Street Trash has something to offend everyone - but it is quite a lot of fun. We covered two of Artificial Eye's early Atom Egoyan films on Blu-ray; Family Viewing and The Adjuster - both, unfortunately, bare-bones. I may be alone but didn't think so highly of Ki-duk Kim's Pieta, but it seems on a competent Blu-ray from Image Entertainment. On DVD Eric did a comparison of Robin Campillo's unusual fantasy film The Returned.. Enjoy the fresh air - see you next week!


Pieta BD - In this intensely haunting story, a loan shark lives an isolated and lonely existence, using brutality to threaten and collect paybacks from desperate borrowers for his moneylender boss. He mercilessly collects the debts without regard to the pain he causes his countless victims. One day, a mysterious woman appears, claiming to be his long-lost mother. Coldly rejecting her at first, he gradually accepts her in his life and decides to quit his cruel job and seek a decent, redemptive life. However, he soon discovers a dark secret stemming from his past and realizes it may be too late to escape the horrific consequences already set in motion from his previous life. Blu-ray Release date: July 23rd, 2013

The Earrings of Madame de... BD - French master Max Ophuls's most cherished work, The Earrings of Madame de . . . is an emotionally profound, cinematographically adventurous tale of false opulence and tragic romance. When the aristocratic woman known only as Madame de (the extraordinary Danielle Darrieux) sells her earrings, unbeknownst to her husband (Charles Boyer), in order to pay personal debts, she sets off a chain reaction, the financial and carnal consequences of which can only end in despair. Ophuls adapts Louise de Vilmorin's incisive fin de siècle novel with virtuosic camera work so elegant and precise it’s been called the equal to that of Orson Welles. Blu-ray Release Date: August 6th, 2013

The Devil's Backbone BD - One of the most personal films by Guillermo del Toro, The Devil’s Backbone is also among his most frightening and emotionally layered. Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the tale of a twelve-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro expertly combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish mélange that, like his later Pan’s Labyrinth, reminds us the scariest monsters are often the human ones. Blu-ray Release date: July 29th, 2012

Seconds BD - Rock Hudson is a revelation in this sinister, science-fiction-inflected dispatch from the fractured 1960s. Seconds, directed by John Frankenheimer, concerns a middle-aged banker who, dissatisfied with his suburban existence, elects to undergo a strange and elaborate procedure that will grant him a new life. Starting over in America, however, is not as easy as it sounds. This paranoiac symphony of canted camera angles (courtesy of famed cinematographer James Wong Howe), fragmented editing, and layered sound design is a remarkably risk-taking Hollywood film that ranks high on the list of its legendary director’s achievements. Blu-ray Release date: August 13th, 2012

A Late Quartet BD - When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet receives a life changing diagnosis, the group's future suddenly hangs in the balance: suppressed emotions, competing egos, and uncontrollable passions threaten to derail years of friendship and collaboration. As they are about to play their 25th anniversary concert, quite possibly their last, only their intimate bond and the power of music can preserve their legacy. Inspired by and structured around Beethoven's Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, A LATE QUARTET pays homage to chamber music and the cultural world of New York. Blu-ray Release date: July 29th, 2013

Graceland BD - Intense and unpredictable, GRACELAND is the story of family man Marlon Villar, the longtime chauffeur of Manuel Chango a corrupt Filipino politician. One afternoon, while he and his daughter accompany the politician’s daughter home, their car is ambushed in a kidnapping attempt. During the confusion of the ambush, the kidnapping goes horribly wrong and the wrong girl is taken and held for ransom. Marlon is determined to save his daughter, but between the conflicting motives of the kidnappers and Chango, Marlon is forced into a terrible downward spiral. As events unfold, Marlon, Chango, and their families are forced into a game of deceit and betrayal that will leave no one innocent. Blu-ray Release date: July 23rd, 2013

The Returned - The recently dead return to life and seem content merely to go back to their former lives, but their return causes a myriad of complications. Isham and Véronique have their trepidations, but they're generally happy, at first, to see their little boy Sylvain, and the town's elderly mayor welcomes home his wife, Martha . But Rachel, a government health official, cannot bring herself to visit her newly returned husband, Mathieu, at the ad-hoc shelter where the government houses the "zombies" like refugees. Eventually, she relents, and Mathieu returns home, but the living find that their loved ones are not exactly as they remember them. Studies soon reveal that the dead suffer from a form of aphasia. They cannot create new memories, and they cannot be trusted to perform any but the most menial tasks. Perhaps sensing the discomfort they cause the living, the dead gather together at night, and seem to be formulating some kind of secret plan. DVD Release Date: July 22nd, 2013

Street Trash BD - In the sleazy, foreboding world of winos, derelicts and drifters in lower Manhattan, two young runaways - eighteen-year-old Fred (Mike Lackey) and his younger brother, Kevin (Mark Sferrazza) - live in a tire hut in the back of an auto wrecking yard. Life is hard, but the most lethal threat to the boys is the mysterious case of 'Tenafly Viper' wine in Ed's liquor store window. The stuff is forty years old... and it's gone bad. REAL bad! Anyone who drinks it melts in seconds, and it's only a dollar a bottle! The subversive cult classic/horror comedy STREET TRASH rode the last wave of super-gore films in the late `80s before cinema entered the era of safe R-Rated horror and unoriginal remakes. Blu-ray Release date: July 9th, 2013

Blood and Sand BD - Based on the novel by Vincente Blasco Ibanez, Blood and Sand is the beautifully rendered story of the rise and fall of a young, cocksure Spanish bullfighter, played by Tyrone Power. Working his way slowly up the ladder to success, Power achieves fame when he is praised to skies by fatuous, fickle critic Laird Cregar. A country boy at heart, Power finds himself way over his head with sophisticates, and is soon torn between his pious and faithful wife Linda Darnell and sexy, mercenary Rita Hayworth. It is Darnell, however, who comforts Power after his final, fatal goring in the bull ring. The film's best scenes depict the curious combination of horror and fascination with which bullfighting aficionados treat this most barbaric of "sports." Blood and Sand was previously filmed in 1922 with Rudolph Valentino; a Valentino contemporary, Alla Nazimova, plays Power's mother in the remakes. Portions of this film turned up as stock footage in the 1945 Laurel and Hardy comedy The Bullfighters. Blu-ray Release date: July 9th, 2013

Hands of the Ripper BD - An infant girl watches in horror as her father, the infamous Jack the Ripper , brutally murders her mother. Years later, young Anna (Angharad Rees) is now under the care of a fake psychic and has been forced into prostitution. At the end of a séance one evening, a woman is mysteriously killed. Dr. John Pritchard (Eric Porter) suspects Anna is the murderer but cannot understand how she could do this unspeakable act. Using new Freudian psychoanalysis techniques, Pritchard experiments on Anna and discovers a shocking secret. The spirit of the Ripper is alive and well, and may be possessing his own daughter! Can this evil be stopped before it's too late? Blu-ray Release date: July 9th, 2013

Family Viewing BD - Ignore the title: Family Viewing makes for fascinating viewing, though it is not designed as entertainment for the whole... family. This Canadian film stars David Hemblen as Stan, a profoundly disturbed young man. Upon the disappearance of his mother, Stan feverishly tries to piece together existing clues. He's not sure he likes the outcome, but given the extent to which his family has disintegrated, he's not surprised, either. Family Viewing was expertly filmed on a wafer-thin budget by independent Canadian director Atom Egoyan. Blu-ray Release Date: June 24th 2013

The Adjuster BD - Noah is not your average insurance adjuster. Specialising in house fires, Noah will do anything to ease the pain of his tragedy-stricken clients - including bedding them. But as his desire to sexually underwrite strangers swells to the point of obsession, Noah realises that his wife and son are steadily fading out of his life. And when a bizarre twist of fate turns Noah's entire world upside down, he just might find that the only person he can't save is himself. Blu-ray Release Date: July 22nd, 2013

Runaway Train BD - Two convicts break out of Stonehaven Prison in the dead of winter, boarding a freight train with the intention of getting as far away as possible before their notoriously sadistic warden finds out. But the brakes fail and the driver has a heart attack, sending hundreds of tons of metal hurtling through the snowy Alaskan wastes at terrifying and unstoppable speed. Based on a script by Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai), with hardboiled prison slang added by real-life ex-con Edward Bunker (Mr Blue in Reservoir Dogs), this riveting thriller also boasts Oscar-nominated performances from Jon Voight and Eric Roberts with Voight playing spectacularly against type as a criminal so vicious that he served much of his sentence welded into his cell. Combining electrifying action with constant psychological tension (the only surviving member of the train crew is a young, inexperienced woman), Runaway Train is one of cinema's great thrill-rides. Blu-ray Release date: July 22nd, 2013
