ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Okay - what stood out this week? Hmmm... well, although our review is incomplete West Side Story on Blu-ray was a visual and aural treat extraordinaire. I keep returning to specific scenes and I am absolutely blown away. I can guarantee that many will feel the same. Despite being inconclusive about the image - Edward Dmytryk's The Caine Mutiny remains such an interesting and engaging film but I'd also give a strong endorsement for Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale - you can take the sentimentality out of Christmas but not the magic and the transfer is immaculate - strongly recommended! Imamura's The Ballad of Narayama has never looked better on digital than the Masters of Cinema's Blu-ray release. Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused has two Blu-ray editions available - see the differences in our comparison. Fulci's Zombie is gore-central and one of the most lauded of the Giallo genre - now in 1080P thanks to Blue Underground. Attack the Block is a bit shocking but once into its rhythms is a lot of fun. ON DVD Eric has covered MoC's A Man Vanishes - previously unavailable anywhere on home video - a must-own for Imamura fans. Red Psalm is one of Miklos Jancsó's best-known films and we finally have an English-friendly disc in a worthwhile presentation thanks to Second Run. Pre-code era fans will see marital discourse in Housewife and The Rich Are Always With Us also has the efforts of director Green, George Brent and bedroom-eyed Bette Davis. Fernando Di Leo's To Be Twenty certainly doesn't shy away from showing some skin. I was placed right into the correct mood for TNT Jackson in Roger Corman's Lethal Ladies Collection. . Civilization is the process of setting man free from men - enjoy your week!


Fire of Conscience - Haunted cop Manfred (actor/singer Leon Lai, THREE EXTREMES II) - who has been living in his van and has exiled himself into pick pocket gang detail in order to catch his pregnant wife's killer - comes together with slick, ruthless Inspector Kee (Richie Ren, BREAKING NEWS) - who transferred to the crimes unit from narcotics since his fast-track career has been held back by his engagement to a Triad boss' former flame (Vivian Hsu, THE ACCIDENTAL SPY) - in when the former's prostitute murder case intersects with the death of one of Kee's partners, a subway cop shooting, and a South Asian arms deal. DVD Release Date: October 25th, 2011

Roger Corman's Lethal Ladies Collection - TNT Jackson: A young karate expert searches for her brother's killer in Hong Kong. Firecracker: A blonde femme fatale martial arts expert teaches the mafia a lesson. Too Hot to Handle: Sexy adventure film has an international hit lady involved in James Bond-ish escapades in Manila. DVD Release Date: October 25th, 2011

Red Psalm - Winner of the Best Director Prize at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival, Red Psalm is also one of the great Hungarian film director Miklos Jancsó's best-known films. Recounting the story of a peasant uprising in Hungary in the 1890s, the film examines the nature of revolt, and the issues of oppression, morality and violence. Shot using just 28 long takes, Red Psalm is an extraordinary film, a virtuoso exercise of form and content and a formidable work of art from a filmmaker at the peak of his powers. DVD Release Date: October 24th, 2011

Zombie BD - They really don't make them like they used to. Although I enjoyed the recent "Resident Evil" movie (against all expectations), it is sad to see how the zombie movie has gone downhill over the past couple of decades. Today's zombie movie is a kinder, gentler zombie movie. The camera oh-so-nimbly cuts away in time, lest you see any offensive grue. And the women in the new generation of zombie flicks are strong and capable, unlike their limp-dishrag sisters from the seventies who merely screamed and waited to be rescued by the man folk. That I don't mind, but on the downside, they just don't run around with their baps out as much as they used to. For all of its many flaws (emphasis on MANY), Lucio Fulci's 1979 B-movie near masterpiece "Zombie" (a.k.a. a slew of other titles) has enough worm-ridden zombie flesh, horrendously fake yet appalling gore, and completely superfluous female nudity to make this a winner.
Blu-ray Release Date: October 24th, 2011

A Man Vanishes - Oshima Tadeshi is one of the 91,000 citizens to disappear into thin air yearly in Japan. A film crew has selected the seemingly average case of this seemingly average man - a plastics salesman from the country taken in by his employers as family - case as their focus and find several possible reasons as to why he might have disappeared, but no definitive answer. He had embezzled a substantial sum of money from his company two years before, but it had been paid back by docking his paycheck and he was not fired. Could he still be stricken by guilt? DVD Release Date: October 24th, 2011

The Rich Are Always With Us - The richest woman in the world (Ruth Chatterton) has everything money can buy. But with her heart torn between her faithless husband and an ardent writer (George Brent), she can’t have the one thing every woman wants: happiness. Herbert Hoover was still President and the Depression was at its most depressing when this delicious wallow in uptown romance hit the Bijou, featuring an electric performance by young Bette Davis as a society girl also enamored of the writer. This wasn’t the end of Davis’ relationship with Brent. They would make 11 films together, including Jezebel and Dark Victory. It wasn’t the end of the Chatterton-Brent relationship, either: the on-screen lovers married soon after the film opened. DVD Release Date: November 1st, 2011

Housewife - The pre-code tale of adultery that squeaked past the censors! Coming at the tail end of 1934, Housewife was released shortly before the imposition of the “Hays Code” would render its subject matter ‘verboten!’ This turgid melodrama finds modern bachelor girl Patricia Berkeley (Bette Davis) dueling it out with modern housewife Nan Reynolds (Ann Dvorak) for the affections and ministrations of Nan’s husband, William (George Brent). Ambitious office manager William finally succeeds in setting up shop for himself in the advertising biz thanks to help from copywriter Pat and ideas from housewife Nan. When his late nights working at the office with Pat turn into something else, Nan must decide if William is worth fighting for. That is, if Pat will let her. Davis is at her vamping, doe-eyed best as the jaded sophisticated Pat, a copywriter who knows how to spin the right line to lure a guy. DVD Release Date: November 1st, 2011

West Side Story BD - The winner of 10 Academy Awards, this 1961 musical by choreographer Jerome Robbins and director Robert Wise (The Sound of Music) remains irresistible. Based on a smash Broadway play updating Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to the 1950s era of juvenile delinquency, West Side Story stars Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer as the star-crossed lovers from different neighbourhoods--and ethnicities. The film's real selling points, however, are the highly charged and inventive song-and-dance numbers, the passionate ballads, the moody sets, colourful support from Rita Moreno, and the sheer accomplishment of Hollywood talent and technology producing a film so stirring. Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim wrote the score.
Blu-ray Release Date: November 15th, 2011

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale BD - It's the eve of Christmas in northern Finland, and an 'archaeological' dig has just unearthed the real Santa Claus. But this particular Santa isn't the one you want coming to town. When the local children begin mysteriously disappearing, young Pietari and his father Rauno, a reindeer hunter by trade, capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation sponsoring the dig. Santa's elves, however, will stop at nothing to free their fearless leader from captivity. What ensues is a wildly humorous nightmare – a fantastically bizarre polemic on modern day morality.
Blu-ray Release date: October 25th, 2011

Attack the Block BD - From the producers of Shaun of the Dead, Attack the Block is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen street gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing project into a sci-fi battleground, the low-income apartment complex into a fortress under siege. And it turns a crazy mix of tough street kids into a team of kick ass heroes. It’s inner city versus outer space and it’s going to explode.
Blu-ray Release date: October 25th, 2011

Dazed and Confused BD - America, 1976. The last day of school. Bongs blaze, bell-bottoms ring, and rock and roll rocks. Among the best teen films ever made, Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused eavesdrops on a group of seniors-to-be and incoming freshmen. A launching pad for a number of future stars, Linklater’s first studio effort also features endlessly quotable dialogue and a blasting, stadium-ready soundtrack. Sidestepping nostalgia, Dazed and Confused is less about “the best years of our lives” than the boredom, angst, and excitement of teenagers waiting . . . for something to happen.
Blu-ray Release Date: October 25th, 2011

The Ballad of Narayama BD - Creating a vividly realised inverse image of “civilised” society with typical directness and black humour, Imamura presents a bracingly unsentimental rumination on mortality and an engrossing study of a community’s struggles against the natural elements. Handled with a masterful control and simplicity, moving effortlessly between the comic and the horrific, The Ballad of Narayama is one of the legendary director’s deepest, richest works, and ranks among the finest films of its decade.
Blu-ray Release Date: October 24th, 2011

The Caine Mutiny BD - Having aligned himself with producer Stanley Kramer after naming names during the HUAC witch-hunt trials, Dmytryk opted for ever more turgidly serious subject matter. This, the last and perhaps the best of his films for Kramer, was an adaptation of Herman Wouk's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about the court martial carried out against peacetime naval destroyer officers Francis and Johnson after they have mutinied against Bogart's Captain Queeg, who panics during a storm. Bogie's considerable charisma is visibly weakened by his tired appearance, and the strong cast is never really allowed full rein by Dmytryk, whose abiding concern that fair play be seen to be done, with regard to all the characters' various motivations, makes for a stodgily liberal courtroom drama.
Blu-ray Release Date: October, 2011

To Be Twenty - Lia (Gloria Guida, SO YOUNG LOVELY AND VICIOUS) and Tina (Lilli Carati, THE ALCOVE) are two "young, hot, and pissed off" twenty year old women on the road. They hitchhike, shoplift, and flirt their way to Rome where they find digs at the commune of Nazariota (Vito Caprioli, RULERS OF THE CITY). They are taken aback when Nazariota suggests that they "satisfy desires" (putting the communing in commune) to contribute to the upkeep of the debt-ridden dive. Lia doesn't mind ("so long as they are clean") but Tina prefers to have a choice, and handsome Raymond Lovelock's perpetually-tripping Rico is the only one of the unwashed that tickles her fancy (actually she tickles his... while he's sleeping). DVD Release Date: August 16th, 2011

Devils Playground - NewGen has injected 30,000 test subjects with an experimental endurance drug for a two-month trial period. Within that time, more and more of the subjects experience drastic symptoms from internal bleeding to total organ failure and are filling up NewGen's treatment center as well as all of the area hospitals. 29,999 are accounted for, all but Angela Mills (MyAnna Buring, THE DESCENT) who has seemingly disappeared. DVD Release Date: October 11th, 2011

The Cheerleaders - The Amarosa High School cheerleading team is short one member since one of the girls got pregnant. The coach is now looking for a "cheerleader with a chastity belt" so Debbie (Brandy Woods) and Bonnie (Jovita Bush, FOX STYLE) recommend their tomboyish friend Jeannie (Stephanie Fondue). The coach and head cheerleader Claudia (Denise Dillaway) make a wager about Jeannie's maidenhead: if Jeannie remains a virgin for the rest of the season, the coach must sleep with leering janitor Novi (Raoul Hoffnung), but if Jeannie is deflowers, then Claudia must sleep with Jeannie's dull boyfriend Norman (Jonathan Jacobs).
