ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I was very impressed with Twilight Time's Blu-ray package of Samuel Fuller's House of Bamboo - brilliant deep colors and two commentary tracks. BFI have done an excellent job with their Blu-ray of Godard's Vivre Sa Vie - offering two versions of the film, a commentary and plenty of other extras. Artificial Eye seem to be off to a good start with the Chaplin Blu-rays starting with City Lights although The Kid has a questionable image quality. Masters of Cinema produce an admirable Blu-ray of Haskell Wexler's ground-breaking Medium Cool. For pure value, it's hard to beat Arian Lyne's Jacob's Ladder Blu-ray - a solid 1080P a/v, commentary and a steal of a price. I thoroughly enjoyed the under-rated Steve McQueen film The Reivers - now on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber. Mr. Bongo offer their kick at the can for Fellini's Casanova and, despite being bare-bones, has decent value. Odeon Entertainment give us Orson Welles' The Stranger in 1080P and we've compared it to other Blu-ray versions. The Revengers looks beautiful on Blu-ray - a middling western with a strong premise. On DVD Gregory covered the delectable British Noir- 5 Film Collection containing 5 films (5 discs) with movies of James Mason, Trevor Howard, and John Mills; and directors Ronald Neame and Roy Ward Baker. Eric covered Dragon's Return, the highly lauded Czech film, on Second Run DVD in the UK, A Wolf at the Door - the multi-award winning Brazilian film and the UK comedy series The Delivery Man.... “What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway..”. Enjoy your week!


The Revengers BD - The stars of The Wild Bunch, William Holden (Stalag 17) and Ernest Borgnine (Marty) team up again in this action-packed western stylishly directed by Daniel Mann (Our Man Flint). Civil War veteran-turned-rancher John Benedict (Holden) returns home from a hunting trip to discover that a ruthless renegade and his murderous gang of rogues have killed his wife and children. But when Benedict recruits six condemned men to help him extract fatal revenge, he realizes that his newly formed posse answers to no one - they are wild, dangerous and unpredictable killers, much like the men they are pursuing. Will they carry out Benedict's plan or turn the tables and add him to their list of victims? Co-starring Woody Strode (The Professionals) and Susan Hayward (The Lusty Men). Blu-ray Release Date: Release date: August 25th, 2015

Jacob's Ladder BD - Lyne's chilling film bombed in the States, probably because of its origins in the murkier side of the now done-to-death Vietnam War. But, messy and maddening though some of it is, Jacob's Ladder is also a truly scary film which is never simply a war or horror vehicle. Jacob Singer (Robbins) is a man whose life totters continually between past, present and future, between reality and terrifying illusion brought on by his experiences in Vietnam, where his unit was dosed with a vicious derivative of LSD to improve its killing power. Where the problem arises is that this scenario is only one alternative in the life of a man variously shown as divorced, studying and co-habiting, married and prosperous with children, or dead on a Vietnam field-hospital table. But Lyne's giddying, unsettling direction conjures up moments of horrifying hallucinogenic power from the bad-trip hell of his protagonist. Blu-ray Release Date: Release date: August 25th, 2015

The Stranger BD - The legendary story that hovers over Orson Welles's The Stranger is that he wanted Agnes Moorehead to star as the dogged Nazi hunter who trails a war criminal to a sleepy New England town. The part went to E.G. Robinson, who is marvelous, but it points out how many compromises Welles made on the film in an attempt to show Hollywood he could make a film on time, on budget, and on their own terms. He accomplished all three, turning out a stylish if unambitious film noir thriller, his only Hollywood film to turn a profit on its original release. Welles stars as unreformed fascist Franz Kindler, hiding as a schoolteacher in a New England prep school for boys and newly married to the headmaster's lovely if naive daughter (Loretta Young). Welles the director is in fine form for the opening sequences, casting a moody tension as agents shadow a twitchy low-level Nazi official skulking through South American ports and building up to dramatic crescendo as Kindler murders this little man, the lovely woods becoming a maelstrom of swirling leaves that expose the body he furiously tries to bury. Odeon Entertainment Blu-ray Release Date: May 4th, 2015

The Reivers BD - It's a grand and spectacular "horseless carriage" - a shiny yellow 1905 Winton Flyer automobile. Its owner is Mississippi plantation owner "Boss" (Will Geer, Jeremiah Johnson), who has left it sitting unattended. But hired hand Boon (Steve McQueen, Junior Bonner) decides it would be the ideal vehicle to take him and his buddy on a glorious whirlwind jaunt to distant Memphis. And along for the ride is Boss's earnest 12-year-old grandson, who finds himself reluctantly drafted to be the third "reiver" (an old Scottish word for 'thief') aboard his grandfather's car. So starts a bumpy journey that sweeps the trio into encounters with both Boss's raucous gal pal at a brothel and a corrupt racist sheriff, as well as a spellbinding, winner-takes-all horse race - with ownership of the Winton Flyer at stake! Blu-ray Release Date: August 25th, 2015

The Kid BD - Oft cited as being overly sentimental, Charlie Chaplin prefaces The Kid with an inter-title proclaiming that it is “a story with a smile—perhaps, a tear.” The film certainly pulls on the heart strings, most notably when social workers threaten to tear the kid away from the Tramp in a scene that comes from Chaplin's own experience at seven when his mother was committed to a mental institution. Charlie and his brother Sydney were assigned to an orphanage, and Chaplin clearly was emotionally scarred by the experience—read his autobiography or watch Richard Attenborough's Chaplin for details. So, in a very real sense, The Kid stands as a landmark for Chaplin. Not only is this his most personal film, but it marked a turning point in his career. Blu-ray Release Date: September 14th, 2015

Medium Cool BD - It’s 1968, and the whole world is watching. With the U.S. in social upheaval, famed cinematographer Haskell Wexler decided to make a film about what the hell was going on. Medium Cool, his debut feature, plunges us into the moment. With its mix of fictional storytelling and documentary technique, this depiction of the working world and romantic life of a television cameraman (Robert Forster) is a visceral cinematic snapshot of the era, climaxing with an extended sequence shot right in the middle of the riots surrounding the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. An inventive commentary on the pleasures and dangers of wielding a camera, Medium Cool is as prescient a political film as Hollywood has ever produced. Masters of Cinema's Blu-ray Release Date: August 31st, 2015

House of Bamboo BD - Writer-director Samuel Fuller’s House of Bamboo (1955) is a gangster-noir for the post-war world: hard, fast, and out of control. Shot entirely on location in Tokyo and Yokohama by the brilliant cinematographer Joe MacDonald, it gives us a look at a brutally exploitative Japanese-based American gang led by a compelling sadist (the one and only Robert Ryan). Caught up and over his head is the relatively innocent Eddie (Robert Stack), whose burgeoning love for a “kimono girl” (the lovely Shirley Yamaguchi) is counterpointed by his involvement with the complicated crime boss. Also featuring sterling performances from Cameron Mitchell and Sessue Hayakawa. Blu-ray Release Date: August 11th, 2015

Fellini's Casanova BD - Federico Fellini's darkest film cracks through the myth of Giacomo Casanova. As played by Donald Sutherland (M.A.S.H, Don't Look Now), the notorious womanizer is presented as a pitiable and terrifying figure. Casanova craves respect as a scholar and yearns to pursue his interest in alchemy. A sex scandal lands him in prison, but an escape to Paris provides him a new lease of life. Yet every Court in Europe and its attendant patrons and hostesses will only entertain him if he lives up to his reputation in the ritual displays of sex and courtship which form part of the daily life of 18th Century Europe. Fellini had dealt with the theme of the frustration of human desires in La Dolce Vita and 8 ˝. In Casanova, the nobleman's search for happiness achieves tragedy, a painful reflection of the human condition. Blu-ray Release Date: September 7th, 2015

City Lights BD - The most cherished film by Charlie Chaplin is also his ultimate Little Tramp chronicle. The writer-director-star achieved new levels of grace, in both physical comedy and dramatic poignancy, with this silent tale of a lovable vagrant falling for a young blind woman who sells flowers on the street (a magical Virginia Cherrill) and mistakes him for a millionaire. Though this Depression-era smash was made after the advent of sound, Chaplin remained steadfast in his love for the expressive beauty of the pre-talkie form. The result was the epitome of his art and the crowning achievement of silent comedy. Artificial Eye Blu-ray Release Date: August 24th, 2015

Vivre Sa Vie BD - Vivre sa vie was a turning point for Jean-Luc Godard and remains one of his most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with a tragic character study. The lovely Anna Karina, Godard’s greatest muse, plays Nana, a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but instead ends up a prostitute; her downward spiral is depicted in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances. Featuring some of Karina and Godard’s most iconic moments—from her movie theater vigil with The Passion of Joan of Arc to her seductive pool-hall strut—Vivre sa vie is a landmark of the French New Wave that still surprises at every turn. BFI Blu-ray Release Date: August 24th, 2015

British Noir- 5 Film Collection - While the film noir movement may seem like a distinctly American phenomenon, British studios embarked on their own shadowy thrillers, laced with postwar cynicism. This five-DVD collection assembles some of the lesser-known Brit noir titles from the Rank Studios, featuring such major talents as actors James Mason, Trevor Howard, and John Mills; and directors Ronald Neame and Roy Ward Baker. DVD Release Date: August 25th, 2015

Dragon's Return - One of the most exciting discoveries in Slovak cinema, Eduard Grecner's Dragon's Return is an elemental ballad of love, hatred, revenge and desire. A reclusive potter, Martin Lepi - nicknamed 'Dragon' - returns to his isolated community years after being wrongly accused of a crime, punished and shunned by his village. His return immediately engenders an atmosphere of suspicion, fear, and simmering violence. Grecner's hauntingly poetic film is also a revealing account of peasant life in a world isolated from history and the mainstream of socio-political events - beautifully realised by Vincent Rosinec's luminous monochrome cinematography, and enhanced by an award-winning score from Ilja Zeljenka. DVD Release Date: August 24th, 2015

A Wolf at the Door - Set in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro, A WOLF AT THE DOOR is based on real events, and is a nerve-rattling tale of a kidnapped child and the terror of the parents left behind. When Sylvia (Fabíula Nascimento) discovers her six-year-old daughter has been picked up at school by an unknown woman, police summon her husband Bernardo (Milhem Cortaz) to the station for questioning. There Bernardo confesses his extra-marital affair with the beautiful young Rosa (Leandra Leal), whom detectives believe to be involved in the kidnapping. Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Coimbra's suspenseful debut feature captures the heightened anxiety of every parent's worst nightmare, casting a light upon the cruelties of which humans are capable. DVD Release Date: August 25th, 2015

The Delivery Man - All six episodes of the British sitcom starring Darren Boyd and Fay Ripley. After deciding his life needs more meaning, former policeman Matthew Bunting (Boyd) starts his new job as a midwife at Easthill Park Hospital. Being the only male midwife, Matthew struggles to fit in but soon finds his place once he begins to connect with his patients. The episodes are: 'Youth', 'Truth', 'Prisoner', 'Celebrity', 'Foundling' and 'Theft'. DVD Release Date: July 20th, 2015
