ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Marcel Carné's Children of Paradise is a one-of-a-kind film experience and Criterion's Blu-ray rendering of the 2011 restoration looks significantly different from the last DVD but it is such overpowering cinema that I can only rank it first this week. But there are plenty of discs vying for second place including the western-noir Pursued with Mitchum and Teresa Wright - the rich atmosphere is only benefited by 1080P. Seeing Tarr's The Turin Horse again, this time, via Artificial Eye's new Blu-ray remains a highly rewarding treat. Fritz Lang's Secret Beyond the Door is a bona-fide Noir from one of the masters and it looks wonderful in the higher resolution. We can't leave out Welles' Macbeth - a significantly improved appearance on Blu-ray. How about Siodmak's moody The Dark Mirror? with classically dark aura lurking in the mist. Every time I watch Cukor's A Double Life - it gets better and now the a/v gets significant bump from Olive Films. Re-Animator is a gas and the Blu-ray package is stacked. Elaine May's first feature A New Leaf is a winner - worthy owing it on the new Blu-ray. Hanson is in control with his The Hand That Rocks the Cradle thriller - bare-bones but entertaining and silly Sleepwalkers gets the only definitive Blu-ray pass this week. Olive's interlaced DVD of Bresson's The Devil Probably makes us appreciate the Artificial Eye disc. The Pinochet Case has a very inferior transfer but we still endorse the documentary as one of the better seen this year. If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle is deserved of the accolades including its Silver Bear award. Eric covered the impressive Man of the Story DVD from Second Run as well as marginal efforts like Madness and Coffin of his usual bent. School Days, School Days...


The Hand That Rocks the Cradle BD - Claire (Sciorra), happily married and pregnant, is molested during a visit to her gynecologist. The ensuing investigation results in the doctor's suicide, thus causing his pregnant wife (De Mornay) to miscarry. De Mornay finds solace in an elaborate revenge which involves posing as a nanny and gaining employment with Claire in order to wreak havoc. Screenwriter Amanda Silver gleefully exploits parental fears, and skillfully depicts the shifting loyalties, malevolence and escalating paranoia within Claire's household. Blu-ray Release date: September 4th, 2012

Sleepwalkers BD - Teen hunk Krause and his incestuous mother Krige are the last of a line of creatures who feed on the virtue and suffering of small-town virgins like Amick. So when Amick takes Krause to a graveyard to make out, he transforms into the date-rapist from Hell. The creature and transformation effects are impressive, but undermined by wild swings of tone: here, for example, explicit physical horror gives way to misjudged jokey taunts, until ended by the truly laughable intervention of a fearsome kitty cat. The slide into implausibility gathers pace as the scratched and wounded Krause is nursed by his fading mother in a house surrounded by a growing horde of vengeful pussies. It's never explained why they're afraid of domestic cats, why they're the last of their line, or why they're called Sleepwalkers. Garris is left by Stephen King's typically threadbare script to extract what few frights he can with tricksy camerawork, shock effects, and flesh-ripping gore. Blu-ray Release date: September 4th, 2012

Re-Animator BD - Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is a brilliant medical student who has perfected a green-glowing serum for regenerating life into dead things -- or even parts of dead things. But a corrupt superior, Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale), assumes control of West's experiments and winds up, by ghastly necessity, using the stuff on his own severed head and body. West and in-over-his-head co-worker Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) struggle to control the now out-of-control effects of the serum, but the bone-saws and zombies complicate their plans. Blu-ray Release date: September 4th, 2012

A New Leaf BD - Writer-director-star Elaine May's first feature (1971). Not all of it works, and the studio nixed her original black ending, but it's an often brilliant and frequently hilarious comedy. Walter Matthau, cast wildly against type, plays a spoiled playboy suddenly deprived of his wealth who plots to marry and murder a wealthy, klutzy, and dysfunctional botanist (May, playing sort of a female Jerry Lewis). May's savage take on her characters irresistibly recalls Stroheim; she's at once tender and corrosive (as well as narcissistic and self-hating). This is painful comedy, to be sure, but there's a lot of soul and spirit behind it. Blu-ray Release date: September 4th, 2012

Pursued BD - A superb Western film noir, with Mitchum pursued through near-epic landscapes of the mind by the indistinct demons of childhood trauma, and the narrative boldly structured around flashback insights which gradually provide both a key to his identity and the inexorable impetus for a violent catharsis. Walsh's intelligent handling of Oedipal themes here and in White Heat gives the definitive lie to his self-cultured image as merely an adventuresome Hollywood primitive, while the film proves that the late '40s noir sensibility spread way beyond the bounds of the urban crime thriller. Blu-ray Release date: September 4th, 2012

The Turin Horse BD - Never a prolific force, the Hungarian director Béla Tarr has declared that ‘The Turin Horse’ will be his last film. He has also suggested that the reason for hanging up his boots is apparent in the film – which makes ‘The Turin Horse’ even more of a glorious, terrifying mystery. It’s an epic portrait of drudging peasantry, set, biblically, over six days – and it is a film that drills into the core of your soul. Blu-ray Release date: September 10th, 2012

The Pinochet Case - In September 1998, the already turbulent history of modern Chile took a surprising turn when the British government successfully detained former-Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet for 16 months, while the House of Lords debated his extradition to Spain to stand trial for crimes against humanity. The action was the result of charges brought by solidarity minded Spanish public prosecutor Carlos Castressana and upheld by Spanish "superjudge" Baltazar Garzon, who ruled that crimes such as torture and genocide fall under universal jurisdiction and, in Pinochet's case, were subject to prosecution outside Chile. Pinochet's dictatorship lasted from Sept. 11, 1973, when his military allies staged a violent coup d'etat that ended in the death of democratically elected Socialist president Salvadore Allende, until 1990, when Pinochet was voted out of office. During his 17-year reign, approximately 3,200 Chileans were killed or disappeared without a trace; countless others were kidnapped and tortured in secret detention camps. DVD Release Date: September 4th 2012

A Double Life BD - The first of Cukor's string of fruitful collaborations with screenwriters Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon, a curious melodrama about a Broadway matinée idol who so loses himself in his role as Othello that he carries it over, murderously, into a backstreet affair with a waitress. The theatre scenes are so brilliantly observed, so rich in the sort of affectionate detail that made The Actress a small masterpiece, that the film seems to grind gears uncomfortably when venturing into the grey and shabby B movie world of the murder. All the more so in that it then returns to its happier idiom for a grand finale of on-stage retribution. Flawed, undoubtedly, but fascinating. Blu-ray Release Date: September 18th, 2012

The Dark Mirror BD - Impressively unusual thriller with typically simplistic Freudian elements as psychiatrist Ayres is called in by the police to help investigate a murder committed by one of two identical twins...but which one? Intriguing cat-and-mouse games and perverse power struggles as both he and we try to fathom which of the sisters is the warped psycho, with de Havilland (in the dual role) and Siodmak managing admirably to counteract the contrived plot. What really makes it work, though, is Siodmak's firm grasp of mood and suspense; the opening scene, in which the camera prowls a darkened room until it finds a corpse, sets the tone perfectly for the sense of uncertainty and chaos that follows. Blu-ray Release Date: September 4th, 2012

Macbeth BD - A borderline horror flick, Welles's expressionist and magical MACBETH (1948), unlike most screen versions of Shakespeare, is pure cinema. It was but three weeks in production at low-budget horse-opera mill Republic studio, stunningly shot by cameraman John L. Russell (who later shot Psycho). Welles is superb as the tragic hero, and in spite of the film's limitations, a good deal of the play's power comes through. One of the director's most personal creations, it's a courageous experiment with a craggy barbaric splendor all its own. Blu-ray Release Date: September 18th, 2012

If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle - Adapted from playwright Andreea Valean's popular stage drama, If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle tells the story of Romanian juvenile delinquent Silviu (George Pistereanu), who is serving time in a youth detention center when he learns that his mother plans on moving to Italy with his younger brother, whom he had raised since childhood. With just five days of his sentence left to serve, Silviu grows increasingly desperate to prevent his mother from absconding with his sibling, and finds himself drawn to a pretty social worker named Ana (Ada Condeescu). Eventually, Silviu's desperation grows too powerful to suppress, and he kidnaps Ana in a reckless bid to find his brother before it's too late. DVD Release Date: August 20th, 2012

The Devil Probably - Regarded by many as a masterpiece, Bresson is film tells the story of a young man living in Paris who desires more from life than the glib, superficial truths and material things that are on offer to him. He reaches out to his friends and psychiatrist to provide him with the great answers in life. But his spiritual deliverance remains beyond his grasp until he reaches a bizarre arrangement with a fellow drifter. DVD Release Date: September 18th, 2012

Children of Paradise BD - Children of Paradise explores the concepts of love and art, with intricate juxtapositions that are interwoven with perhaps some of the wittiest dialogue ever written in the history of cinema. It reads much like a Shakespearean drama, as another link to its thespian forbearers. Dominating the tight narrative is the sophistication of Garance, the female lead played by Arletty. Passionately circling her to varying degrees are four men who have come to love her, each in a different way. These characters exude their own individual appeal with vain bravado, sensitivity, animal cunning and pompous wealth. Blu-ray Release Date: September 18th, 2012

Madness - From the writer of Caliber 9 and The Italian Connection comes Madness, starring Joe Dallesandro, a story about how a violent criminal, Joe Brezzi, breaks out of prison and, having stolen a car and killed two people in the process, makes his way to a remote country cottage. Hidden beneath its flooring are the substantial proceeds from a robbery which Joe took part in several years previously, but before he can retrieve the loot the owners of the cabin return, changing Joe's plans from a simple break-in to murder. DVD Release Date: August 28th, 2012

Coffin - A masked stranger (Johnny Alonso) reveals to Jack Samms (Patrick Barnitt) that his estranged wife, Rona (Sunny Doench), and her lover, Sean (Kevin Sorbo), are buried underground in a wooden box and their oxygen will run out in 75 minutes unless he pays a $500,000 ransom. With aid from his friend Garrison (Bruce Davison), Jack must now engage in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the masked stranger in order to save his wife -and himself. DVD Release Date: August 14th, 2012

Man of the Story - From Indian master filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan (whose acclaimed 1981 film Rat Trap Second Run DVD also released) Man of the Story (Kathapurushan) is an intimately-constructed drama traces the consequences of the tumultuous political and social changes that swept through India in the years since pre-Independence 1937. Depicting these through their effect on the life of one man, the film's titular protagonist Kunjunni, Indian master Adoor Gopalakrishnan utilizes a complex blend of traditional and modern storytelling techniques to tell his tale. Drawing upon folklore and recent historical events, the film traces the rational yet difficult course of the growth and development of Kunjunni's consciousness against the backdrop of a society in transition. DVD Release Date: August 20th, 2012

Secret Beyond the Door BD - Bennett is the woman who falls for an architect and promptly marries him, not asking as many questions about his past as she should have done. She soon discovers that he has a few skeletons in his cupboard, maybe even literally. Determined to find out the secret beyond the door of his mansion, she soon believes herself to be in mortal danger. Another of the Freudian thrillers that were so in fashion in the 1940s, director Lang manages to turn on the suspense but is more interested in the art of film-making than what makes his protagonist tick.
