ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): It's hard not to be overwhelmed by the restoration and HD rending of Pandora and the Flying Dutchman Wow! Still an odd-duck fantasy film but never looking or sounding better. Abdellatif Kechiche’s The Secret of the Grain on Criterion Blu-ray deserves a heck of a lot of attention. It's a film that resonates family, food and love. Ursula Meier's Home is curious enough to warrant a spin and performances satisfy for an intriguing presentation. More of the Greek Gods spilling over onto our existence in a new and snappy Clash of the Titans. If you're 'in' - you're 'in'. Speaking of fantasy - Leonard has revisited Hellboy II: The Golden Army with more glowing accolades. Those caps look sweet. The Prowler has its own niche and for that community - it satisfies with harsh Savini effects. On DVD, for those unaware, Eclipse Series 22: Presenting Sacha Guitry is definitely worth the indulgence. A unique blend of humor and style rolled into 4 amusing French titles. Leonard exposes us to George Kaczender's dreamy 70's film The Girl in Blue and Catherine Breillat's latest; Blue Beard - a Borowczyk-esque fantasy. Nick Roeg still causes me to scratch my head but thanks to Gregory for comparing his baffling effort Eureka. Jeans Simmons may be enough of an enticement for Say Hello to Yesterday. Enjoy!!


Pandora and the Flying Dutchman BD - Restored under the auspices of Martin Scorsese, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman stars Ava Gardner as the siren of a small Spanish town, the type of woman men kill and die for. She s never fallen for anyone until the arrival of the mysterious James Mason, the actual Flying Dutchman condemned to sail the seas until he finds a woman who would die for him. Featuring stunning color cinematography by Jack Cardiff (Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes). Blu-ray Release date: August 3rd, 2010

Home BD - Switzerland's official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 82nd Academy Awards, HOME is a mesmerizing fable of modern family life starring internationally renowned actress Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher). Huppert plays Marthe, a happy-go-lucky mother whose family enjoys an idyllic existence in their isolated, ramshackle home, which edges onto an abandoned highway. Almost entirely cut off from society at large, they forge their own utopia. Everything changes when city trucks roll in to complete the road's construction, allowing rush hour traffic to start rumbling by. Blu-ray Release date: July 27th, 2010

Hellboy II: The Golden Army BD - Hellboy is yet another comic book-to-movie character – this one created by Mike Mignola for Dark Horse Comics. What's most interesting about the character is that he is sent here from the other side of existence to destroy the world, but has been "tamed" from infancy by the mankind's possible representative and mentor. While this dichotomy is addressed in both movies, it is a weakness in common to both that the split is never clearly manifest. Hellboy is one of the good guys, even if the public at large can't quite make up its mind about him. In any case Hellboy, while he works for Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defense, is clearly his own man with a wild streak who enjoys chewing up the scenery. Blu-ray Release date: November 11th, 2008

The Prowler BD - In 1945, a G.I. returns from the war and receives a "Dear John" letter from his sweetheart. On the night of the Avalon Bay graduation dance, she and her boyfriend are brutally murdered and the dance canceled from then on. 35 years later, the school decides to resurrect the dance so you know there's going to be trouble (especially if you've already seen the original MY BLOODY VALENTINE). After all, Sheriff Fraser (Farley Granger, ROPE) is going off on his fishing trip so the only cop on duty will be Mark (Christopher Goutman) who has his hands full with "final girl"/love interest Pam (Vicky Dawson) and a handful of other would-be co-ed victims that catch his eye. Blu-ray Release Date: July 27th, 2010

Secrets of Nature - The natural world has always inspired fascination. Secrets of Nature, a pioneering series exploring animal, plant and insect life, made wondrous worlds and natural processes visible for the first time: sweet peas unfurl in the sunlight, white owls swoop in on their prey, sea life lurks on the ocean floor and moths patiently spin their cocoons. DVD Release Date: July 19th, 2010

They Stand Ready - The third volume in the COI Collection, They Stand Ready, looks at Britain's armed forces. To help paint a positive picture of life in the Services the COI produced morale-boosting documentaries, propaganda items and numerous recruitment films, which placed emphasis on escaping the humdrum of daily life. Join the Services, we are told, and a world of opportunity awaits you. DVD Release Date: July 19th, 2010

Eclipse Series 22: Presenting Sacha Guitry - Sacha Guitry was once a household name. Something of a Gallic counterpart to Nöel Coward, this disarming, multitalented artist served up some of 1930s French cinema’s tastiest dishes. The son of a beloved theater actor, Guitry was devoted to the footlights, first turning to the silver screen as a way of bringing his plays to a wider audience. His films were anything but stage-bound, however: often the director, writer, and star of his popular movies, Guitry brought a witty inventiveness to the cinema and deployed radical tactics with such aplomb and control that he’s considered one of the medium’s first “complete auteurs.” With these four films, American audiences can finally sample Guitry’s creative, comic confections. DVD Release Date: July 27th, 2010

Etoile - Claire Hamilton (Jennifer Connelly, PHENOMENA) has come to Budapest to audition for a ballet school run by the mysterious Marius Balakin (Laurent Terzieff, THE LAST METRO). Claire meets cute with fellow American Jason (Gary McCleery, TAPS) who retrieves her dropped slipper. Jason is in Budapest with his Uncle Joshua (an overacting Charles Durning) to buy up some antique clocks at auction but is quickly distracted by Claire. Claire goes to the audition but loses her nerve (although she is spotted by Balakin dancing on an empty stage). Back at her hotel receives flowers addressed to long dead ballerina Natalie Horvath. Claire plans to go back to New York but instead answers to a loudspeaker request for a car waiting for Natalie Horvath and gets into a Rolls Royce which spirits her away into the past. Later, Jason sees her in a park and is delighted that she has stayed but she appears not to know him. Jason is mystified and grows suspicious when it appears that outside forces are trying to keep him away from her (including his uncle suddenly turning into a murderous lunatic).

Old Enough - A pre-WHO'S THE BOSS Alyssa Milano appears in her first role as Lonnie's kid sister. Produced for $650,000, OLD ENOUGH is the old fashioned "coming of age" tale about sexual awareness (couched within a story about stepping outside of your boundaries) rather than losing virginity. While it starts out like a well-budgeted eighties TV movie, it becomes interesting and moving. Award-winning cinematographer Michael Ballhaus' slick cinematography lacks a certain grittiness but there is some gorgeous low-key lighting that recalls Ballhaus' work on some of Fassbinder's films. DVD Release Date: April 27th, 2010

The Secret of the Grain BD - The winner of four César awards, including best picture and director, Abdellatif Kechiche’s The Secret of the Grain is a stirring drama about the daily joys and struggles of a bustling French-Arab family. It has the texture of a documentary but a classic, almost Shakespearean structure: when patriarch Slimane acts on his wish to open a portside restaurant specializing in his ex-wife’s couscous and fish, the extended clan’s passions and problems explode, leading to an engrossing, suspenseful climax. With sensitivity and grit, The Secret of the Grain celebrates the role food plays in family life and gets to the core of contemporary immigrant experience. Blu-ray Release date: July 27th, 2010

Say Hello to Yesterday - An unemployed young man only identified as The Boy (Leonard Whiting, ROMEO AND JULIET) has just turned twenty-two the day he meets The Woman (Jean Simmons, BLACK NARCISSUS), an unhappy forty-something well-to-do housewife who has come to London to do some shopping after having quarreled with her husband. She resists his overtures (he describes her as “Mata-Hari, Barbarella and Candy all rolled into one”) as he follows her through London and she tries to lose him. He even follows her to her mother's (Evelyn Laye) house (and she is shocked when her mother is less than scandalized at the situation). DVD Release Date: June 29th, 2010

Follow Me - The Surf Corp. (Claude Codgen, Bob Purvey, and Mary Lou McGinnis), having surfed all the spots on the American coast has to offer, hop on a plane to surf the world's hot spots starting with Portugal before moving to Morocco, Ceylon, India, Hong Kong, Japan and Hawaii (all thoughtfully labeled and contextualized with stock footage). If you hope to learn anything about surfing, you've come to the wrong place - other than where to look photogenic while surfing - and there's only so many times the upside down, slow motion, and aerial shots can be used before it becomes monotonous. Still, FOLLOW ME is a goofy but painless 75 minute globe trot. DVD Release Date: June 29th, 2010

Skateboard - Schlub Manny (Allen Garfield) is unemployed and in trouble with his bookie. In desperation, he decides to start a skateboard team using the punks who annoy him daily by jumping over his stalled car. As in any "sports" film with such a protagonist, he gets into it just to make money but must take a stand when his bookie tells him to instruct his team to take a dive. Theatrically released through Universal Pictures, SKATEBOARD: THE MOVIE is apparently a cult film for skateboarders but for the rest of us it's painless fun. DVD Release Date: July 27th, 2010

Clash of the Titans BD - In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, Perseus and his warriors will only survive if Perseus accepts his power as a god, defies fate and creates his own destiny. Blu-ray Release date: June 27th, 2010

The Girl in Blue - Montreal lawyer Scott (David Selby) has a loving relationship with schoolteacher Bonnie (Gay Rowan) but is haunted by the what-if of his brief chance meeting with a beautiful and beguiling woman in blue (Maud Adams, in a dual role). Although he has searched for her intermittently (whenever he catches sight of the model sports car she was driving), it is not until Bonnie starts pushing him to marry her that he starts out a more aggressive search for the woman which further alienates Bonnie. The Canadian entry for the 1973 Berlin Film Festival, THE GIRL IN BLUE achieves a wonderfully dreamy atmosphere thanks to its score, the overcast views of new and old Montreal, the surrounding countryside and islands, and the lovely cinematography. Some humor and a naturalistic performances from Selby and Rowan (in contrast to the ambiguous one of Adams and the caricatured but colorful supporting cast) keep this one from getting too pretentious and the script isn't as predictable as one would expect (although the last scene seems like a cop-out). DVD Release Date: July 27th, 2010

Blue Beard - Two adolescent sisters explore their house's attic and stumble across a copy of Charles Perrault's "Bluebeard" and read it as it is enacted onscreen in Catherine Breillat's latest. In the story itself, sisters Anne (Daphne Baiwir) and Marie-Catherine (Lola Creton) are turned out of school when their father dies and cannot pay tuition (in a nod to the Marquise de Sade's JUSTINE). Local aristocrat Bluebeard (Dominique Thomas) is looking for a bride and does not require a dowry which suits Marie-Catherine just fine despite the fact that Bluebeard's previous wives have vanished into thin air. DVD Release Date: June 22nd, 2010

Eureka - It seems all too commonplace to overlook the later works of Nicolas Roeg: the accepted practice seems to be to laud praise on his first five films as director, but to consider his works after 'Bad Timing' 1980, to be less than the great works that cineastes had come to expect from Roeg. Part of the problem may simply be that Roeg's first five films were all absolute masterpieces from a great visionary. Indeed, Roeg's vision was so strong that many consider John Schlesinger's 'Far From the Madding Crowd', 1967, to be a Nicolas Roeg film (it was one of Roeg's last films as cinematographer, made three years before 'Performance', 1970), this is due in no small part to the fact that Roeg's vision as cinematographer almost completely eclipsed Schlesinger's vision as director.
