ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): There is so much - it's hard to know where to begin. I'd have to give prime mention to Masters of Cinema's Late Mizoguchi package - 8 films by the director in 1080P with 4 never having been released; Chikamatsu Monogatari / Uwasa no Onna and Akasen Chitai / Yôkihi added to the Blu-ray collection that already includes Ugetsu monogatari, Sansho dayu and even more. Essential. And sticking with MoC - their Dr. Mabuse, The Gambler has the 4.5 hour epic silent masterpiece looking adventurously rich on 2 Blu-ray discs. Silent Era fans are also blessed with Cohen Media's new Blu-ray transfer of D.W. Griffith's Intolerance - a dramatic improvement over past DVDs. I'm still a huge fan of William Wyler's The Best Years of Our Lives despite being a tad under-whelmed with Warner's new HD transfer. Still a valuable advancement over SD. I have a similar nagging ambivalence for Warner's Giant and Rebel Without a Cause from their James Dean Collection. Both have value on Blu-ray and are fabulous cinema but perhaps I was expecting more visually. Arrow in the UK keep pumping out strong Blu-rays and their new release of De Palma's The Fury adds to that list. It's hokey but great genre fun. I'm a big fan of the spaghetti western My Name is Nobody and it's pleasing to see it released in 1080P - even with a few speckles and light scratches. We're far from finished with our recommendations - the documentary - cum - avante gard expression Leviathan is not to all tastes but is visually compelling in an impressionist vein. Speaking of art, the TV made production Schalcken the Painter carries a distinctly creepy canvas atmosphere - too good to pass up. Beauty of the Devil is a Faustian tale by director Rene Clair and well-worth a spin. Eric covered two of his 'low budget' film DVDs with Silent Cry - a thriller/mystery from 2002 and the title-telling Bath Salt Zombies.. Have an thrill-filled week!


Intolerance BD - After Birth of a Nation, what do you do for an encore, especially after said film has branded you a racist? D.W. Griffith, the silent era's "king of the world," mounted this melodramatic spectacle of "Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages," four stories that illustrate "how hatred and intolerance have battled against love and charity." Critic Heywood Broun, upon the film's release, probably said it best: "Quite the most marvelous thing which has been put on the screen, but as a theory of life it is trite." But what's on the screen is dazzling! Blu-ray Release Date: November 5th, 2013

My Name is Nobody BD - Produced by Sergio Leone and very much bearing his stamp, a Western which takes as its theme the alchemy whereby life is turned into legend. The year is 1899, and feared but fading gunfighter Jack Beauregard (Fonda) lives for the day he can lay down his deposit on a steamer berth to Europe. Instead he meets his angel of death, a young gunfighter calling himself Nobody who, in turn, lives for the legend of Beauregard and an obsessive vision of the ultimate confrontation: between Beauregard, alone on an immense plain, and the 150 men of the Wild Bunch. With superbly handled action sequences, excellent cinematography, and a Morricone score worthy of his Man With No Name efforts, it's a film to be seen. Blu-ray Release Date: November 5th, 2013

The Best Years of Our Lives BD - The best coming home movie ever made. "I don't care if it doesn't make a nickel," Sam Goldwyn reportedly said of THE BEST YEARS, "I just want every man, woman, and child in America to see it." The colorful producer got the idea for the film after reading a Life article about WWII veterans and their difficulties in adjusting to civilian life. With a brilliant script by Robert E. Sherwood, effective direction by William Wyler, masterful photography by Gregg Toland and excellent performances by the entire cast, this film about returning American servicemen is justifiably considered a classic. Blu-ray Release Date: November 5th, 2013

Leviathan BD - One of the most highly anticipated films of the year, from the directors of Sweetgrass and Foreign Parts, LEVIATHAN is a thrilling, immersive documentary that takes you deep inside the dangerous world of commercial fishing. Set aboard a hulking fishing vessel as it navigates the treacherous waves off the New England coast–the very waters that once inspired Moby Dick– the film captures the harsh, unforgiving world of the fishermen in starkly haunting, yet beautiful detail. Employing an arsenal of cameras that pass freely from film crew to ship crew, and swoop from below sea level to astonishing bird’s-eye views, LEVIATHAN is unlike anything you have ever seen; a purely visceral, cinematic experience. Blu-ray Release date: October 22nd, 2013

Schalcken the Painter BD - Based on a short story by Sheridan Le Fanu, Schalcken the Painter was originally shown in the Omnibus strand on BBC 2 during Christmas 1979. The story follows a young seventeenth century Flemish painter Godfried Schalcken, who forsakes love for ambition, but discovers that there is still a terrible price to pay for his choice. Blu-ray Release date: November 18th, 2012

Beauty of the Devil BD - Michel Simon and Gérard Philipe star in this imaginative retelling of the Faust legend. Approaching the end of his life, a prominent professor of alchemy (Simon) makes a bargain with the Devil (Philipe) that will gain him youth, fame and riches in exchange for his soul. Master filmmaker René Clair creates an allegorical fantasy that is at times both whimsical and tragicomic. Blu-ray Release date: October 29th, 2013

Rebel Without a Cause BD - This landmark juvenile-delinquent drama scrupulously follows the classic theatrical disciplines, telling all within a 24-hour period. Teenager Jimmy Stark (James Dean) can't help but get into trouble, a problem that has forced his appearance-conscious parents (Jim Backus and Ann Doran) to move from one town to another. The film's tormented central characters are all introduced during a single night-court session, presided over by well-meaning social worker Ray (Edward Platt). Jimmy, arrested on a drunk-and-disorderly charge, screams "You're tearing me apart!" as his blind-sided parents bicker with one another over how best to handle the situation. Judy (Natalie Wood) is basically a good kid but behaves wildly out of frustration over her inability to communicate with her deliberately distant father (William Hopper). Blu-ray Release Date: November 5th, 2013

Dr. Mabuse, The Gambler BD - It mirrors German society of the 1920s in all its criminal-ridden decadence. Its sinister theme is domination by terror. The power-crazed Mabuse masterminds the world’s most dangerous gang of counterfeiters, thieves, and murderers, wielding hypnotic powers with an iron fist to obtain total obedience to his will. A master of many disguises, Mabuse is portrayed by Rudolf Klein-Rogge, who later starred as Rotwang, the mad scientist, in Lang’s science-fiction classic, Metropolis. See the cinema’s most legendary criminal genius in this monumental four-hour epic. Blu-ray Release Date: October 28th, 2013

Late Mizoguchi BD - Kenji Mizoguchi looms over the history not only of Japanese cinema - but of world cinema altogether. These eight films from the last decade of Mizoguchi's career represent a collection of eight of his greatest works, which is to say, eight of the greatest films ever made. Blu-ray Release Date: October 28th, 2013

Chikamatsu Monogatari / Uwasa no Onna BD - Based on a centuries old tale with roots in real events, Chikamatsu Monogatari [A Tale From Chikamatsu, aka The Crucified Lovers] tells the hauntingly tragic story of a forbidden love affair between a merchant's wife, Osan (Kyoko Kagawa), and her husband's employee, Mohei (Kazuo Hasegawa), in an era when the punishment for adultery was crucifixion. When a series of innocent events lead to the false accusation of an affair between Osan and Mohei, the accused pair are forced to flee an almost certain death sentence. On the run, the outlaw couple grow closer together, drawn inexorably towards the romantic crime of which they are accused. In the hands of Mizoguchi, Chikamatsu Monogatari depicts two people caught up in a constricted world where true love and social obligation are at odds. His portrayal of the lovers' dilemma lead famed director Akira Kurosawa to describe the film as "a great masterpiece that could only have been made by Mizoguchi." Released the same year, Uwasa no Onna [The Woman in the Rumour] offers a contrasting portrait of attitudes and mores concerning love and relationships. Set in a modern Kyoto geisha house, the eponymous woman in the rumour is Hatsuko (Kinuyo Tanaka, star of countless Mizoguchi films, in her last role for the director with whom she was often romantically linked), madame of her own geisha house. When Hatsuko ends up pursuing the same man as her daughter, Yukiko (Yoshiko Kuga), both women are forced to confront their attitudes towards each other and the family business. Blu-ray Release Date: October 28th, 2013

Akasen Chitai / Yôkihi BD Akasen Chitai [Red Light District, aka Street of Shame] sadly, the very last film by Kenji Mizoguchi (Sansho Dayu, Ugetsu Monogatari) presents a vivid portrait of prostitution in 1950s Japan. In a Tokyo brothel named Dreamland an obvious irony given the faded hopes of those who work there the lives of five prostitutes intersect. Each has a very different story for how they entered the profession, but what they share is the struggle to make sense of the red light district and its cycle of exploitation. Filmed shortly before the Japanese government's introduction of an anti-prostitution bill, Akasen Chitai is a compelling study of women torn between financial necessity and questions of conscience. It was nominated for the prestigious Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, and inspired French critic Jean Douchet to proclaim: For me, along with Chaplin's Monsieur Verdoux and Renoir's La Rčgle du Jeu, the greatest film in the history of cinema. Set many centuries earlier, Yokihi [Imperial Concubine Yang, aka Yang Kwei Fei] recounts the Chinese legend referred to in its title. In eighth-century T'ang China, widowed Emperor Hsüan-tsung (Masayuki Mori) reigns alone, devoting his life to the composition of music. When he meets and falls in love with a beautiful young woman (Machiko Kyo), who will become his imperial concubine, a tale of political intrigue and rival dynasties is set in motion, with ultimately tragic consequences. Sumptuously filmed in vibrant colour, Yokihi is the most ancient of Mizoguchi's costume dramas, yet its central themes of passion, sorrow, and the conflict between love and power remain timeless it was also nominated for the Golden Lion at Venice. Blu-ray Release Date: October 28th, 2013

Bath Salt Zombies - The bath salts epidemic facing the southern and mid-western US has been stifled by an unprecedented government crackdown. This has led to a tremendous amount of surplus stock hidden by black market dealers, and a migration of those dealers to the northeast. In New York City, potent strands have surfaced and have attracted the most devoted bath salt junkies. A young aspiring chemist has developed an even stronger batch... but something has gone horribly wrong. The new ultra potent bath salt batch has revealed a major side effect: It turns users into violent flesh seeking ZOMBIES! DVD Release Date: February 19th, 2013

Silent Cry - When Rachel is told by doctors that her baby died after birth she refuses to accept their story. At the hospital she meets Daniel, a janitor who believes her baby was switched with the child of a prostitute. Together they embark on an a relentless investigation through a seedy underworld which exposes conspiracy and corruption in the medical world. DVD Release Date: August 20th, 2013

The Fury BD - Brian De Palma returns to the mind-blowing potential of telekinesis in the follow-up to his 1976 horror hit Carrie. While vacationing with his psychic son, Robin (Andrew Stevens), and close associate Childress (John Cassavetes), government agent Peter Sandza (Kirk Douglas) survives a terrorist attack, only to discover that it was staged by Childress so he could kidnap Robin for his own nefarious purposes. With the assistance of another psychic (William Finley) and Hester (Carrie Snodgress), an employee at the Paragon Institute for Psychic Research, Peter discovers a telekinetic Chicago high-school girl named Gillian (Amy Irving), who may be able to help him find Robin. Even though they have never met, Gillian can see Robin's memories and experiences telepathically, and she knows that he is in trouble. But Childress knows all about Gillian, too, and he is not about to let Peter's paternal quest get in the way of his plans for harnessing their psychic power. Blu-ray Release Date: October 28th, 2013

Giant BD - George Stevens' sprawling adaptation of Edna Ferber's best-selling novel successfully walks a fine line between potboiler and serious drama for its 210-minute running time, making it one of the few epics of its era that continues to hold up as engrossing entertainment across the decades. Giant opens circa 1922 in Maryland, where Texas rancher Jordan "Bick" Benedict (Rock Hudson) has arrived to buy a stallion called War Winds from its owner, Dr. Horace Lynnton (Paul Fix). But much as Bick loves and knows horses, he finds himself even more transfixed by the doctor's daughter, Leslie Lynnton (Elizabeth Taylor), and after some awkward moments, she has to admit that she's equally drawn to the shy, laconic Texan. They get married and Leslie spends her honeymoon traveling with Jordan to his ranch, Reata, which covers nearly a million acres of Texas. Once there, however, she finds that she has to push her way into her rightful role as mistress of the house, past Bick's sister, Luz (Mercedes McCambridge), who can't accept her brother's marriage or the changes it means in the home they share. Also working around Reata is the laconic ranch hand Jett Rink (James Dean) -- from a family as rooted in Texas as the Benedicts but not nearly as lucky (or "foxy"), Jett is dirt-poor and barely educated at all, and he fairly oozes resentment at Bick for his arrogance, although Luz likes him and for that reason alone Bick is obliged to keep him on.
