ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): There are at least six Blu-rays I felt worthy of premium mention this week. Hammer Film's Twins of Evil is in a great 1080P package from Synapse Films. The Dardenne brother's The Kid With a Bike is another masterpiece from the Belgium duo and Artificial Eye has produced a fine Blu-ray presentation. Jarmusch's Down By Law has the best HT presentation yet. Ford, Wayne, Rio Grande, Blu-ray - 'nuff said. Also from Olive Films we have a surprising video presentation for the Wachowski's modern Noir Bound and Kino, from the similar cycle but a 1/2 century before, They Made Me a Fugitive - also on Blu-ray. Not to leave out Kinka Usher's endlessly fun 'Mystery Men' - a wonderful favorite comedic super-hero adventure and Whit Stillman's bounding sly wit in both The Last Days of Disco and Metropolitan via Criterion Blu-ray. Worthy of passing are what-am-I-doing-on-Blu-ray Firstborn and Hammer-like but under-achieving The Blood Beast Terror. DVD this week offer Eric covers Second Run's Oscar-nominated, Hungarian feature by Istvan Szabo; Confidence (Bizalom). Gregory exposes more digital noir transfer quality reviewing Diana Dors and Victor Mature in The Long Haul, a double feature with Busby Berkeley's They Made Me a Criminal and exploitive titled Lady Gangster, Arlene Dahl in She Played With Fire, prison films For You I Die and The Last Mile (with 'The Mick') - also the appealing Man of Courage. I chipped-in with two Canadian-centric efforts; Intent to Kill and Hudson's Bay with not-enough Gene Tierney. This is the week where you take what you deserve!


The Last Days of Disco BD - The Last Days of Disco is a clever, comic return to the nighttime party scene in early eighties Manhattan from director Whit Stillman (Metropolitan). At the center of the film’s roundelay of revelers are the icy Charlotte (Kate Beckinsale) and the demure Alice (Chloë Sevigny), by day toiling as publishing house assistants and by night looking for romance and entertainment at a premier, Studio 54–like club. The Last Days of Disco is an affectionate yet unsentimental look at the end of an era, brimming with Stillman’s trademark dry humor. Blu-ray Release Date: July 24th, 2012

Twins of Evil BD - Two beautiful orphaned identical twins, Maria and Frieda Gellhorn (Playboy centerfold models Mary and Madeleine Collinson), move to the village of Karnstein to live with their uncle Gustav Weil (played by Hammer horror favorite, Peter Cushing), a fanatical puritan and leader of the local witch-hunting Brotherhood. The village Count (Damien Thomas, Never Let Me Go), an evil man who secretly practices Satanism, uses black magic and transforms into a vampire. Unhappy with her new life, Frieda seeks escape and tragically falls under the spell of the Count. Now overcome with an insatiable hunger for human blood, Frieda has to hide her secret from her sister, and escape her uncle's killing grasp! The wait is over! This Hammer horror classic is now available from Synapse Films in an all-new 1080p high definition transfer and loaded with exciting exclusive special features. Also stars Kathleen Byron (Black Narcissus), David Warbeck (Lucio Fulci's The Beyond) and Dennis Price (Jess Franco's Vampyros Lesbos)! Blu-ray Release Date: July 10th 2012

Metropolitan BD - One of the most significant achievements of the American independent film movement of the 1990s, writer-director Whit Stillman’s debut, Metropolitan, is a sparkling comedic chronicle of a middle-class young man’s romantic misadventures among New York City’s debutante society. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, Stillman’s deft, literate script and hilariously high-brow observations mask a tender tale of adolescent anxiety. Blu-ray Release Date: July 24th, 2012

Rio Grande BD - Wayne's Captain York from Fort Apache has become a Colonel by the time Rio Grande closes the Ford cavalry trilogy, but is still much exercised by troubled notions of authority in both the mirrored families of home life (O'Hara and estranged son Jarman) and command (hamstrung by the inconveniently close Mexican border while keeping down marauding Apaches). A bit wordy, a bit plot-heavy, and with an unfortunate tendency to saccharine musical excess (the Sons of the Pioneers), it's fairly minor but still resonant Ford. Blu-ray Release date: August 7th, 2012

Bound BD - Destined for cult status, this provocative thriller offers a grab bag of genres (gangster movie, comedy, sexy romance, crime caper) and tops it all off with steamy passion between lesbian ex-con Corky (Gina Gershon) and a not-so-ditzy gun moll named Violet (Jennifer Tilly), who meets Corky and immediately tires of her mobster boyfriend (Joe Pantoliano). Desperate to break away from the Mob's influence and live happily ever after, the daring dames hatch a plot to steal $2 million of Mafia money. Their scheme runs into a series of escalating complications, until their very survival depends on split-second timing and criminal ingenuity. Simultaneously violent, funny, and suspenseful, Bound is sure to test your tolerance for bloodshed, but the film is crafted with such undeniable skill that several critics (including Roger Ebert) placed it on their top-ten lists for 1996... Blu-ray Release date: August 7th, 2012

Firstborn BD - A teenager (Christopher Collet, The Manhattan Project) and his kid brother (Corey Haim, in his film debut) spar with their mother's shady new boyfriend (Peter Weller, Robocop) in this dramatic thriller from veteran British director Michael Apted (Gorky Park). Teri Garr (Mr. Mom) stars as the young divorced mother, trying to balance her relationship with her kids and her drifter boyfriend. The boys think they see the man for what he is and need to somehow save their mother from his clutches. The stellar cast includes future superstars Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker. Blu-ray Release date: July 31st, 2012

The Blood Beast Terror BD - Peter Cushing (Horror Express) and Robert Flemyng (Battle of Britain) star in this classic horror film. A crazed etymologist is dabbling in gruesome experiments that are turning his beautiful daughter into a vampire-beast with an insatiable lust for blood! From Cushing's investigations of the opening atrocities to the fieryfinale--this gory thriller from legendary director Vernon Sewell (Ghost Ship) is definitely not for the squeamish! Blu-ray Release date: July 17th, 2012

They Made Me a Fugitive BD - Academy Award nominee Trevor Howard (Brief Encounter, The Third Man) gives one of his greatest performances as Clem, an ex-serviceman who is fed up after the War and drawn to the excitement of black-marketeering. His psychopathic, sadist gang boss, Narcy (Griffith Jones), betrays him when he refuses to deal in drugs, and the story becomes a breathtaking tale of revenge. The complex ending of They Made Me a Fugitive is not a trivial resolution, but lives up to the social consequences of this violent and disturbing film that Leonard Maltin raves ''No holds barred...packs a real punch.'' From legendary screenwriter Noel Langley (The Wizard of Oz). Blu-ray Release date: June 24th, 2012

Confidence (Bizalom) - Szabó's Oscar-nominated 1980 feature is a haunting and moving experience dealing with complex, yet very human questions of love, trust, loyalty, and betrayal under exceptional circumstances. Janos and Kata are thrown together during WW2 and forced to pose as husband and wife to hide from the Nazis. The intensity and suffocating intimacy of their new relationship and the circumstances in which they find themselves, forces them to confront past prejudices and assumptions and challenge what they truly believe. DVD Release Date: June 25th 2012

Hudson's Bay - This sweeping drama chronicles the foundation a Canadian institution: the Hudson's Bay Trading Company. Set in the 17th century when the fur trade was at its peak the story centers on Radisson, a far-sighted entrepreneurial fur trapper, and his sidekick who dream of establishing a major trading post on the title bay. Opportunity arises when they encounter an exiled British aristocrat and begin teaching him frontier ways. He in turn has them travel to England with him. There the determined Radisson, must first convince King Charles that the proposed post would be a lucrative venture. The king eventually agrees to fund the first post and Radisson, his partner and the aristocrat return to the Canadian frontier. DVD Release Date: July 17th, 2010

Intent to Kill - British melodrama maven Jimmy Sangster adapted his screenplay for Intent to Kill from a novel by Michael Bryan. Richard Todd plays a Montreal doctor who is in love with his pretty American assistant Betsy Drake. Todd is saddled with a viper-tongued wife (Catherine Boyle), who wants him to leave the provinces for a posh practice in London. The good doctor's problems are intensified when he is obliged to perform delicate brain surgery on a hated South American president (Herbert Lom), who has been targeted for assassination by a "trusted" colleague (Carlo Giustini). Only the intervention of police detective Paul Carpenter saves Todd from stopping a bullet himself. The heated intrigues of Intent to Kill are contrasted by the wintry Montreal exteriors. DVD Release Date: July 17th, 2010

Down By Law BD - Director Jim Jarmusch followed up his brilliant breakout film Stranger Than Paradise with another, equally beloved portrait of loners and misfits in the American landscape. When fate brings together three hapless men—an unemployed disc jockey (Tom Waits), a small-time pimp (John Lurie), and a strong-willed Italian tourist (Roberto Benigni)—in a Louisiana prison, a singular adventure ensues. Described by Jarmusch as a “neo-Beat noir comedy,” Down by Law is part nightmare and part fairy tale, featuring sterling performances and crisp black-and-white cinematography by the esteemed Robby Müller. Blu-ray Release Date: July 17th, 2012

Mystery Men BD - In Kinka Usher's 'Mystery Men' we are introduced to some of the lesser know brand of caped crusader - in this universe we have Captain Amazing (Greg Kinear), Ben Stiller as Mr. Furious (who's power, it seems is to just get really, really mad) - the wonderfully deadpan William H. Macy as the oddly armored 'Shoveler' - Hank Azaria plays the silverware-tossing 'Blue Raja' - the always hilariously cold Janeane Garofalo, existing on the legacy of her character's father (NOTE: who has the same first name - Carmine - as her real father!), is 'The Bowler' - Paul Reubens, with a sort of surprise comeback, is 'The Spleen'. Plus the only-when-nobody's-looking 'Invisible Boy', there philosophical leader 'Sphinx', dastardly villains like The Disco Boys or Geoffrey Rush as Casanova Frankenstein - it all seems perfectly complete. Blu-ray Release Date: July 24th, 2012

The Kid With a Bike BD - The Dardennes create tension out of human drama and draw believable, excellent performances from their entire cast. Cyril, almost 12, has only one plan: to find the father who left him temporarily in a children's home. By chance he meets Samantha, who runs a hairdressing salon and agrees to let him stay with her at weekends. Cyril doesn't recognize the love Samantha feels for him, a love he desperately needs to calm his rage. This affecting and gripping drama is one of the finest films from the directors of The Child, Rosetta & The Silence of Lorna. Blu-ray Release date: July 24th, 2012

The Long Haul - Harry Miller (Victor Mature) is an Ex-GI living in a tiny, rundown flat in Liverpool with his English bride and young son. Harry feels trapped in his life there: the best job he can get is driving a truck for his wife’s uncle, and his desire to return to the States is a constant source of friction between the couple. When he lends a hand to the gorgeous, petulant girlfriend of big-time racketeer Joe Easy (Patrick Allen), Harry finds himself tempted by more than just the lovely Lynn (Diana Dors). Similar in theme to They Drive by Night and the great Thieves’ Highway, this little known noir gem has more twists and turns than the English countryside; written and directed by Ken Hughes (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Casino Royale) who specialized in British suspense stories (or Brit Noir) before resettling in Hollywood. DVD Release Date: September 21st, 2010

She Played With Fire - British writer and director Sidney Gilliat (Green for Danger, The Lady Vanishes) is responsible for some superb moments of cinematic suspense. This lesser-known crime drama – based on the book "Fortune is a Woman" – featuring the beautiful Arlene Dahl (The Black Book, Slightly Scarlet) as a married woman who runs into a former boyfriend, insurance investigator Oliver Branwell (Jack Hawkins, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Five Finger Exercise), in the line of his business. When her husband (Dennis Price, Murder Most Foul) dies in a fire, the two re-kindle a relationship that ended abruptly. Eventually, murder, arson and blackmail threaten to consume them both. Newly remastered. DVD Release Date: May 1st, 2012

They Made Me a Criminal / Lady Gangster - First, director Busby Berkeley's "They Made Me a Criminal" stars John Garfield as a boxer who goes on the run after he is suspected of killing a man. While he attempts to clear his name, he takes refuge in a camp for juvenile delinquents while a detective tries to track him down. With Claude Rains and the Dead End Kids. Then, in "Lady Gangster," Faye Emerson shines as a no-nonsense gun moll whose dreams of becoming an actress are complicated when she is blamed for a heist. With the help of a kindly district attorney, can she turn her life around? Frank Wilcox, Ruth Ford, Julie Bishop, and, in an early role, Jackie Gleason co-star. DVD Release Date: June 29th, 2004

For You I Die - Convict Johnny Coulter (Paul Langton), nearing the end of a prison sentence, is forced to take part in a prison break organized by gangster and thug Matt Gruber (Don Harvey).
Coulter is told to hide out in a backwoods holiday camp. There he’s to make contact with Gruber’s woman, an ex-chorus girl Hope Novak (Cathy Downs) and let her know that Gruber will be along to fetch her as soon as things cool down. Coulter locates the camp, makes the meet, and keeps his head down. However Novak is not at all the hard-bitten hoofer that he’d been expecting. And it turns out she no longer wants anything to do with Gruber. DVD Release Date: May 15th, 2012

The Last Mile - The plot is basic stuff about doomed men in the big house, how they're treated by the guards, what motivates them, how the prison system works, as Hollywood sees it anyway. In style the film's similar to many period gangster films of its time. Rooney had already played Baby Face Nelson a couple of years earlier. He's in fine form here as a desperate inmate determined to break free. And he takes a lot of people with him in the stunning last half-hour of the film, in which the bullets are flying left and right. DVD Release Date: April 26th, 2012

Man of Courage - They don't call District Attorney John Wallace "Honest John" for nothing, given his reputation for putting high-profile criminals behind bars. All he needs is one more big case to ensure his election as the state's next governor - and big-shot politico Mark Crandall is going to give it to him on a silver platter. A mutilated corpse has been identified as mobster George Dickson. Now D. A. Wallace has the body, a motive (the insurance money), and a prime suspect (Dickson's estranged wife Sally). Despite misgivings about the evidence, which is purely circumstantial, Wallace wins the conviction. Sally gets 20 years to life in federal prison, and Wallace gets elected governor. Then Crandall drops a bombshell: He bought and paid for a witness to provide phony evidence against Sally Dickson. Crandall framed her, but Wallace convicted her. As Crandall sees it, he now owns Wallace. But "Honest John" drops a bombshell of his own: He grants Sally Dickson a full pardon, resigns the governorship, and convenes a grand jury to investigate a miscarriage of justice in which he was an unwitting - and now unwilling - participant. But Crandall's nefarious cohorts won't go down without a fight, and even Sally is bent on revenge. DVD Release Date: May 15th, 2012
