ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): This week it is hard to deny Arrow's Blu-ray set of Masaki Kobayashi's The Human Condition as the number one pick. Debatably the greatest achievement of Japanese cinema, and Arrow have added their special touches to make this a nominee for Blu-ray package of the year. Twilight Time came out with some impressive films-to-Blu-ray in the past month; Martin Scorsese's first studio film, Boxcar Bertha, goes Blu-ray, as does Arthur Penn's enigmatic 1966 film The Chase with Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Robert Duvall, James Fox, Angie Dickinson, E.G Marshall. Twilight Time have some out with their own Blu-ray of Andrei Konchalovsky's tense thriller Runaway Train with Jon Voight - as well as Robert Aldrich's creepy crime horror Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte with Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland. We also get the multi-zombie effort Burial Ground via a new Blu-ray transfer from Severin and lastly Star Trek: The Animated Series comes to Blu-ray reliving much of TOS in its roots. On DVD this week, Eric did a comparison with Second Run's new release of the Spanish historical drama Stella Cadente - as well as three British comedy TV series - Sleepers - The Complete Series, about bumbling Soviet agents, Tandoori Nights - with an east Indian flavor and Meet the Wife - an early 60's comedy immortalized by The Beatles in a lyric from their song Good Morning, Good Morning.

"Toute nation a le gouvernement qu'elle mérite." ("Every nation gets the government it deserves...") - Joseph de Maistre 1860

Have a stress-free Tuesday!

  THIS WEEK's REVIEWS / COMPARISONS
 

Star Trek: The Animated Series BD - Star Trek: The Animated Series is often referred to as Star Trek's "fourth season" because it was created in 1973, four years after the third and final season of the original series, and because most of the original cast provided the voices. William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, and Majel Barrett reprised their characters, and some contributed other voices as well. The only major omission was Walter Koenig's Chekov, who was replaced at the navigation console by Lieutenant Arex, the three-armed alien who most prominently represented the series' freedom to create non-humanoid characters. (Koenig did write an episode.) And while the animation is crude at best, the stories are solid sci-fi (penned by some of Star Trek's veteran writers including DC Fontana and David Gerrold, all of whom received prominent opening credits), explored the Star Trek mythos, and elevated the series above typical Saturday-morning fare. Blu-ray Release Date: November 15th-28th, 2016

The Chase (1966) BD - The Chase consequently boasts a formidable pedigree on all fronts. It was adapted–in theory at least–by Lillian Hellman from Horton Foote's novel and play though it was reportedly taken out of Hellman's hands early and rewritten extensively. The legendary Sam Spiegel produced and Penn had already developed an impressive reputation thanks to his television work and films like The Miracle Worker. Then there's the cast: Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Robert Duvall, James Fox, Angie Dickinson, E.G Marshall and even a young Paul Williams, who looks disconcertingly like a lesbian midget in one of his earliest roles. Blu-ray Release date: October, 2016

The Human Condition BD - Masaki Kobayashi’s mammoth humanist drama is one of the most staggering achievements of Japanese cinema. Originally filmed and released in three parts, the nine-and-a-half-hour The Human Condition (Ningen no joken), adapted from Junpei Gomikawa’s six-volume novel, tells of the journey of the well-intentioned yet naive Kaji (handsome Japanese superstar Tatsuya Nakadai) from labor camp supervisor to Imperial Army soldier to Soviet POW. Constantly trying to rise above a corrupt system, Kaji time and again finds his morals an impediment rather than an advantage. A raw indictment of its nation’s wartime mentality as well as a personal existential tragedy, Kobayashi’s riveting, gorgeously filmed epic is novelistic cinema at its best. Blu-ray Release Date: September 19th, 2016

Burial Ground BD - Italian zombie flick with more than its fair share of good times. When a scientist unearths the tombs of the dead, walking stiffs rise en masse to plague the visitors of a nearby estate. What does each side have going for it? Let's see...the living have poor organization, misplanning, bad timing, but lots of running around screaming. The zombies have teamwork, ingenuity, and loads of patience. Highlights include a homemade masectomy, and the zombies' one-two punch on the household maid. And Peter Bark wins the award for creepiest-looking child this side of the Tiber River. Severin Films Blu-ray Release Date: October 25th 2016

Runaway Train BD - Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky's second American film may well be the only existential adventure flick in Hollywood history. Two prisoners, Manny (Jon Voight) and Buck (Eric Roberts), escape from a desolate Alaskan maximum-security facility. They hop aboard a speeding train, making a clean escape. But the engineer has suffered a heart attack, and the train goes out of control. To prevent a disastrous head-on collision, the railroad heads decide to derail the runaway train, killing its occupants to save the lives of hundreds of others. Once Manny catches on to what's happening, he tries to jump off the train, only to be talked out of such a foolhardy act by railroad employee Sara (Rebecca DeMornay). As doom approaches, Manny apparently goes mad, viciously preventing any attempts to stop the train or rescue its passengers: if he's to die, and if the others are to be saved, it will be on his terms, or no terms. Runaway Train was slated as a project for Akira Kurosawa in 1970, but for various creative and scheduling reasons, it remained on the back burner for 15 years. Twilight Time Blu-ray Release date: October, 2016

Boxcar Bertha BD - Boxcar Bertha, Martin Scorsese's first studio film for Hollywood, shot on the limited budget of $600,000, is slightly better than its formulaic offering. It comes off as a fair imitation of the recent box office smash Bonnie and Clyde. This impersonal Scorsese project, based on the memoirs of the real Boxcar Bertha Thompson, shuns anything heavy or smacking of politics, and instead concentrates on the farcical nature of the work. There are set comedy and almost hard-core sex pieces, that seemed more commercially intended than artistic. This is not one of Scorsese's stronger films. But it gets by on the charms of its stars, Barbara Hershey and David Carradine, and it's filled with the latest cinematic tricks such as quick fades and dreamy soft-focuses. There are also some breezy characters who are easy to handle and add a certain corny charm. It gets away with its mix of hayseed comedy antics and some bloodshed, as it all appears as harmless fun until the murders start coming-- culminating in, of all things, a crucifixion. Twilight Time Blu-ray Release date: October, 2016

Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte BD - When he successfully teamed fading film goddesses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962), director Robert Aldrich kicked off a cinema cycle waggishly referred to as "Grand Dame Guignol," wherein aging leading ladies reclaimed the box-office clout of their youth by headlining shock films that were modestly budgeted and, by the prevailing standards of the day, surprisingly lurid. First to capitalize was Aldrich himself, who sought to reunite Davis and Crawford for another adaptation from the oeuvre of Baby Jane author Henry Farrell. Crawford would bolt in mid-production, and Olivia de Havilland hurriedly signed as a replacement. Still, the finished product, Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1963), stands as one of the better examples of the genre... Twilight Time Blu-ray Release date: October, 2016

Stella Cadente - Stella Cadente (in English Falling Star ), Lluís Miñarro s lavish, lascivious story of the doomed Spanish King Amadeo I in the early 1870s, is unlike any cinematic historical portrait before it. Taking this little-known episode of Spanish history, the film functions as a metaphor for contemporary Spain and by extension, Europe - and its ongoing state of crisis. Both historical film and camp melodrama, this richly layered film is suffused with absurdist asides, surreal interludes and sexually explicit reverie. Its bold and beautiful tableaux are filled with casual references to art and literature, colourfully and radiantly filmed by Jimmy Gimferrer (cameraman for fellow Catalan filmmaker Albert Serra, among others). Wonderfully performed, sumptuously designed, sometimes shocking and playfully anarchic, Stella Cadente is one of the most original and transcendent works to emerge in contemporary European cinema. DVD Release Date: October 31st, 2016

Sleepers - The Complete Series - Amidst the thaw of glasnost, the Kremlin discovers that two Soviet agents, sent to England under deep cover in 1965, have been "lost." A beautiful and ambitious Russian agent, sent to London to track them down, becomes embroiled in a tangle of CIA, KGB and MI-5 plots and counter-plots as the two lost agents, now utterly assimilated, try to avoid detection. DVD Release Date: October 24th, 2016

Meet the Wife - Plumber Freddie Blacklock lives with his wife Thora in the north of England. Freddie is a down-to-earth bloke who likes to take things easy whereas his wife has ambitions for the couple to improve their social standing. Snobbish Thora often put on a 'posh voice' in an attempt to impress those she was speaking to. One of the BBC's earliest domestic sitcoms, Meet the Wife affectionately dissects the trials and comforts of mid-life marriage after the kids have flown the nest. Written by Ronald Chesney and Ronald Wolfe, and running to five seasons from 1960 to 1966, the series was immortalised in The Beatles' 'Good Morning, Good Morning': It's time for tea and Meet the Wife. DVD Release Date: October 24th, 2016

Tandoori Nights - Saeed Jaffrey (My Beautiful Laundrette) stars in this spicy, groundbreaking Channel 4 comedy about an embattled curry house owner and his wayward family. Jimmy Sharma (Jaffrey) is making a comfortable living running upscale Indian restaurant The Jewel in the Crown until one of his ex-waiters opens rival outlet The Far Pavilions right across the street. The new place may be downmarket, with flock wallpaper and chips on the menu, but Jimmy's takings soon take a hit. Jimmy is both supported and given the runaround by his feisty daughters Asha (Rita Wolf) and Bubbly (Shelley King), who in turn are watched over by a domineering Gran (Zohra Segal) whose dearest wish is of course to marry each of them off to a suitable boy. Created by prolific writer, producer and activist Farrukh Dhondy, and producer and co-founder of Picture Palace Films, Malcolm Craddock, the series addresses provocative issues around sexual and racial equality, and takes a wry look at interracial tensions between London's Indian and Bangladeshi communities, sassy, politicised Asian women, mixed-race relationships and grasping business methods. First broadcast in 1985, and now on DVD for the first time, the series is also notable for featuring two episodes written by a 20-something Meera Syal. DVD Release Date: October 24th, 2016
