ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): An easy choice for top spot this week as I felt Meek's Cutoff was a... masterpiece - especially viewed through the precise clarity of Blu-ray. It's also hard not to get a kick out of the Coen's Raising Arizona - qhich continues to amuse year-after-year. Suzanne Bier's morally significant In A Better World is a great film experience - perhaps a little flawed but well worth a digital library investment. Chabrol's early work exposes a clever storyteller and Criterion's Blu-ray transfer of Les Cousins is impressive. Miller's Crossing should need no endorsement and the 1080P is the best digital presentation yet .On DVD - Pedro Costa's Ne Change Rien was a 'cool' thrill, and Agnes Varda's Daguerreotypes could soften the hardest of hearts. Fearlessly Me, Too (Yo, Tambien) explores a less-explored topic with pleasing results. Gregory adds another edition to his comparison of the underrated The Red House as well as a review on the essential Noir - Port of New York. Eric made a comparison for the salaciously poster'ed Black Heaven plus some less remembered also-rans Silver Dream Racer, Greaser's Palace and Haunted. Enjoy he week!


Les Cousins BD - In Les cousins, Claude Chabrol crafts a sly moral fable about a provincial boy who comes to live with his sophisticated bohemian cousin in Paris. Through these seeming opposites, Chabrol conjures a darkly comic character study that questions notions of good and evil, love and jealousy, and success in the modern world. A mirror image of Le Beau Serge, Chabrol’s debut, Les cousins recasts that film’s stars, Jean-Claude Brialy and Gérard Blain, in startlingly reversed roles. This dagger-sharp drama won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and was an important early entry in the French New Wave. Blu-ray Release date: September 20th, 2011

Ne Change Rien - One of the most important figures in contemporary cinema, Pedro Costa s celebrated music documentary is a mesmerizing portrait of French actress-turned-singer Jeanne Balibar, a transfixing, cigarette-smoking chanteuse with an intense devotion to her craft. Photographed in shimmering black-and-white and featuring a soundtrack of jazz-inflected pop songs, Ne Change Rien is a luminous exploration of the creative process. DVD Release Date: August 30th, 2011

Me, Too (Yo, Tambien) - Daniel -- a recent university graduate with Down’s Syndrome -- falls in love on his first day at work in the Department... of Social Services. Laura is an outsider who spends her nights in the city's crowded clubs and single's bars, escaping her problems in the arms of total strangers. Yet despite their apparent incompatibility, the two strike up a moving, bittersweet friendship that touches them both and eventually sets them on the road to happiness. DVD Release Date: August 30th, 2011

Daguerreotypes - A classic documentary from Agnes Varda available for the first time in the US, Daguerreotypes is a wonderfully intimate portrait of the small shops and shopkeepers on a short stretch of the Rue Daguerre, a picturesque street that has been the filmmaker's home for more than 50 years. As in her films The Beaches of Agnes and The Gleaners and I, Varda opens up a fantastic world in microcosm; a picture of a city and a way of life that no longer exist. DVD Release Date: August 30th, 2011

Black Heaven - While swimming at the seaside with their friends, Gaspard (Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet, LA BELLE PERSONE) and Marion (Pauline Etienne, PRIVATE LESSONS) find a lost mobile phone when it rings in their changing room. Marion answers the phone and is addressed as "Sam" by the caller named "Dragon" who leaves an elliptical message mentioning "Black Hole". Gaspard takes the phone home with him and finds a text on it from Dragon about a pre-arranged meeting at the local chapel on Saturday. He also discovers the meaning of "Black Hole". Gaspard and Marion go to the chapel and see the man they assume to be Dragon (Swann Arlaud, RESTLESS) meet up with a mysterious blond presumed to be Sam (Louise Bourgoin, THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ADELE BLANC-SEC). DVD Release Date: September 5th, 2011

The Red House - On the outskirts of a rural town, an isolated farm hosts a small family with a dark secret. At the heart of the neighboring forest sits the red house, terrorizing trespassers with the sound of horrific screams emanating from within its walls. The solitary family keeps the knowledge of the house closely guarded, but when a stranger comes to the farm to help with chores, the web of secrecy begins to unravel. The violence that scarred the family begins to revisit the land and threatens to destroy them all. Filled with noir-ish motifs and striking lighting, The Red House brings together breathtaking drama and chilling horror. Edward G. Robinson is masterful as the burdened recluse, and Julie London is seductive as a spoiled schoolgirl. Po Flix DVD Release Date: September 8th, 2009

Haunted - Apache woman Abanaki discovers that a French priest and a Union officer are stealing gold and they accuse her of being a witch. She is sent into the desert to die of exposure and the gold is never found. One hundred years later, English actress Jennifer Baines (Ann Michelle, VIRGIN WITCH) is on her way back to Hollywood after a visit home and her car breaks down at the Apacheland Movie Ranch, run by Michelle (Virginia Mayo, WHITE HEAT) - hysterically blind since a supernaturally-induced car accident that killed her husband - her sons Patrick (Jim Negele, FRATERNITY ROW) and Russ (Brad Rearden, SILENT SCREAM), and gruff caretaker Andrew (Aldo Ray, RIOT ON SUNSET STRIP). DVD Release Date: September 20th, 2011

Port of New York - Yul Brynner electrifies the screen in his first starring role as ruthless and silky suave gentleman gangster Paul Vicola. Vicola runs a Yacht Club as a front for the east coast's largest heroin smuggling ring. Treasury Agents discover Vicola's mobsters brazenly sneaking the contraband in through America's front door, New York harbor, and plot a dragnet to bring down his criminal empire. DVD Release Date: December 21st, 2004

Greaser's Palace - Zoot-suited Jesse (Allan Arbus, the guest star visiting psychiatrist on M*A*S*H and husband of photographer Diane Arbus) parachutes out of the sky into a western no-man's land dominated by the violent and sadistic Greaser (Albert Henderson, THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE). Sure Jesse can heal the sick and resurrect the dead (including Greaser's son "Homo" [Michael Sullivan, MADMAN], who Greaser kills three times), but he's more interested with meeting up with his agent "Morris" (Don Calfa, RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD) in Jerusalem and becoming a star - Jesse walks on water for entertainment value - than in playing messiah. DVD Release Date: November 22nd, 2010

Silver Dream Racer - British motor bike racer Nick (David Essex, STARDUST) lacks a sponsor and a decent pair of wheels; in contrast to American rival Bruce (Beau Bridges, THE FABULOUS BAKER BOYS), who also has a hot girl Julia (Christina Raines, THE SENTINEL) at his side. When his brother dies in an accident, his sister-in-law allows him to dispose of his brother's bike parts. In the garage, he discovers a silver motorcycle prototype (actually designed by Barton Engineering head Barry Hart) that his brother had been working on in secret. Nick starts working on the bike with only the help of his mechanic Cider (Clarke Peters, MONA LISA) since his drive estranges him from his girlfriend, sister-in-law, and causes him to lose his job. Julia breaks it off with the arrogant Bruce and helps Nick find investors for his entry into "the big race" in which Nick hopes to beat Bruce, but Nick may not make it out of the race alive as he pushes the already souped-up bike beyond its enhance capabilities. DVD Release Date: November 22nd, 2010

Meek's Cutoff BD - Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine, Shutter Island, Incendiary) stars alongside Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) and Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek, I’m Not There, Capote) in a tense, subtle drama set during the earliest days of the Oregon Trail. The year is 1845 and a wagon team of three families is setting off across the sparse terrain of the Oregon desert. They become lost and have to put their faith in a Native American not knowing if he will lead them into an ambush, or water.
Blu-ray Release date: September 13th, 2011

Raising Arizona BD - Sublimely incompetent convenience-store robber Hi McDonnough (Cage, at his best yet) seems doomed to return repeatedly to the same penitentiary until true love hoves in view in the form of prison officer Edwina (Hunter). Spliced in a trice, the frustratedly infertile couple kidnap one (surely he won't be missed?) of the celebrated Arizona quintuplets, heirs to an unpainted-furniture fortune. But happiness being evanescent, complications ensue when a pair of Hi's old cellmates turn up in search of sanctuary; and then there's the problem of a rabbit-shooting biker of hellish hue, hired by Arizona Senior to find his missing brat. What makes this hectic farce so fresh and funny is the sheer fertility of the writing, while the lives and times of Hi, Ed and friends are painted in splendidly seedy colours, turning Arizona into a mythical haven for a memorable gaggle of no-hopers, halfwits and has-beens. Starting from a point of delirious excess, the film leaps into dark and virtually uncharted territory to soar like a comet.
Blu-ray Release date: August 30th, 2011

Miller's Crossing BD - Leo (Albert Finney), a likeable Irish gangster boss, rules an Eastern city along with Tom (Gabriel Byrne), his trusted lieutenant and counsellor. But just as their authority is challenged by an Italian underboss and his ruthless henchmen Leo and Tom also fall for the same woman (Marcia Gay Harden). Tom, caught in the jaws of a gangland power struggle, walks a deadly tightrope as he tries to control and manipulate its violent outcome'.
Blu-ray Release date: August 30th, 2011

In A Better World BD - This year’s Best Foreign Language Oscar winner switches between war-torn Africa and bourgeois Denmark to pose telling questions about violence and responsibility. Medic Anton (Mikael Persbrandt, pictured) saves lives in a refugee camp, but a brutal warlord stymies his efforts. Should he turn the other cheek? That’s his reaction back home when menaced by a local lout, in an impeccable passive resistance lesson for his bullied teenage son Elias (Marcus Rygaard). The latter, though, is far more impressed when his classmate Christian (William Jøhnk Juel Nielsen) takes a seriously kick-ass approach to anyone giving them hassle. What price non-violence when a good thrashing gets results? Ace screenwriter Anders Thomas Jensen lines up the opposing arguments in a crisp, no-nonsense manner, allowing the viewer to feel the moral dilemmas as keenly as the characters do, while director Suzanne Bier marshals the cast without a false note. True, the resolutions on offer seem conventionally pat, yet the tough questions stay with you in an absorbing drama which pushes the viewer’s buttons with effective intelligence.
