ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Arrow are shining quite intensely this week with two large packages reviewed this week. Kiju Yoshida: Love + Anarchism is 7 discs (3 Blu-rays) of three of the director's films - cited as a 'loose trilogy' (with 2 versions of one) - masterful, visually inventive and memorable and includes an illustrated 80-page perfect-bound book. The second, Edgar Allan Poe's Black Cats: Two Adaptations by Sergio Martino & Lucio Fulci, has two stylish Giallos on supplements stacked Blu-rays also containing an 80-page booklet. Both should make some noise in our year-end poll. Murnau's Faust gets a Stateside Blu-ray release from Kino - one of the great works of cinema. I thoroughly enjoyed the surreal dream-like sequences of, the horror, The Mask (3-D, 1961) now in 2D and 3D on Blu-ray.The story behind Sherlock Holmes (1916) is a fascinating one and both Silent Era fans and those of the Great sleuth with appreciate Flicker Alley's new Blu-ray package. Ulli Lommel's Tenderness of the Wolves on Arrow Blu-ray has Fassbiner's style built into the unusual, memorable, bio-horror. Wow. You can see the dramatic improvement of John Cassavetes' A Child is Waiting on Kino Blu-ray over the French DVD - great performances on this fine, touching and honest work. The Reflecting Skin is a stunningly attractive nightmare moving from child to adulthood available on Blu-ray from Soda Pictures in the UK. I immersed myself in Film Detective's BD-R Blu-ray of The Bat with Drive-In-esque pleasure. Fun and impressive a/v. The House on Carroll Street may not be what I was expecting but I can't deny that it's a good film - also on Blu-ray now from Kino. Corman's A Bucket of Blood (1959) get the Blu-ray treatment and is finally, and accurately, widescreen. Eric covered a number of DVDs including a revealing comparisons with the impressive film La Ciudad (The City) in an advanced package from Oscilloscope Laboratories. Kon Ichikawa's highly lauded documentary short Kyoto - Heart of Japan has come to DVD. The Norwegian comedy Dag - Season 1, gets a digital release from Arrow and it's one I will be picking up. Stations of the Cross sounds intriguing - told in fourteen fixed-angle, single shot, individual tableaus that parallel Christ's journey to his own crucifixion. Marie's Story is an award-winning biography from France and A Borrowed Identity is a touted drama about a Palestinian-Israeli boy.. ..:“I was thinking about that dame upstairs, and the way she had looked at me, and I wanted to see her again, close, without that silly staircase between us..." - Neff. Have a triumphant week!


Kiju Yoshida: Love + Anarchism BD - This collection brings together three works from the late sixties and early seventies, a loose trilogy united by their radical politics and an even more radical shooting style. Eros + Massacre, presented here in both its 169-minute theatrical version and the full-length 220-minute director's cut, tells the parallel stories of early 20th-century anarchist (and free love advocate) Sakae Osugi and a pair of student activists. Their stories interact and intertwine, resulting in a complex, rewarding work that is arguably Yoshida's masterpiece. Heroic Purgatory pushes the dazzling cinematic language of Eros + Massacre even further, presenting a bleak but dreamlike investigation into the political discourses taking place in early seventies Japan. Coup d état returns to the past for a biopic of Ikki Kita, the right-wing extremist who sought to overthrow the government in 1936. Blu-ray Release Date: November 9th, 2015

Sherlock Holmes (1916) BD - Long considered lost until a complete dupe negative was identified in the vaults of la Cinémathèque française last year, this William Gillette film is a vital missing link in the history of Sherlock Holmes on screen. By the time it was produced at Essanay Studios in 1916, Gillette had been established as the world s foremost interpreter of Holmes on stage having played him approximately 1300 times since his 1899 debut. This newly-restored edition, thanks to the monumental efforts of both the San Francisco Silent Film Festival and la Cinémathèque française, represents the sole surviving appearance of Gillette's Holmes on film. Blu-ray Release date: November 10th, 2015

Tenderness of the Wolves BD - Fritz Haarmann, aka the Butcher of Hanover and the Vampire of Hanover, was a German serial killer responsible for the murders of two dozen boys and young men during the so-called years of crisis between the wars. His case would partly inspire Fritz Lang's M, and its central character portrayed by Peter Lorre, as well as this forgotten gem from 1973. Blu-ray Release Date: November 3rd, 2015

The Mask (3-D, 1961) BD - After the shocking death of a disturbed patient, psychiatrist Dr. Allan Barnes (Paul Stevens) comes into possession of the ancient tribal mask that supposedly drove the young man to his doom. When Barnes puts on the mask, he is assailed with nightmarish visions of monsters, occultists, and ritual torture. Believing that the mask has opened a portal to the deepest recesses of his mind, the doctor continues to explore this terrifying new psychic world even as the mask reveals a latent violence in Barnes' nature that threatens those closest to him. Kino Blu-ray Release Date: November 24th, 2015

A Child is Waiting BD - Taken away from Cassavetes by not very nice producer Kramer for some Hollywood-style re-editing, this is nevertheless clearly the work of one of cinema's greatest talents. Garland is the new teacher in a school for mentally handicapped children, who is touched by one child (Ritchey) in particular, and gets in trouble with the school's headmaster (Lancaster). Unusually for a Hollywood film, all the disabled children (apart from Ritchey) are actors with real disabilities. Occasionally bordering on the sentimental (never the problem of Cassavetes' independent work) this film nevertheless boasts fine performances and a magic touch by one of cinema's greatest humanists. Kino Blu-ray Release Date: November 24th, 2015

The Reflecting Skin BD - As mysterious deaths plague a small American prairie town, eight year-old Seth (Jeremy Cooper) comes to believe that the pale, reclusive widow living next door (Lindsay Duncan) is a vampire. Seth’s worst nightmare comes true when his older brother Cameron (Viggo Mortensen) returns home from abroad and falls in love with the widow – will he be next? The truth is much more shocking than Seth could imagine. Blu-ray Release date: November, 2015

A Bucket of Blood (1959) BD - Corman's first full-blooded horror comedy was put in a class of its own by Charles Griffith's unusually witty script. Walter, hapless waiter in a Greenwich Village hangout, yearns to be as famous as the poets and musicians he serves endless coffee to. After a lucky break (straight out of Poe), he begins to make it as a prolific sculptor of gruesome corpses... Not surprisingly, the parody of the 'beat scene' (including a hilarious caricature of Allen Ginsberg) is closer to the truth than those attempted in many mainstream movies. Blu-ray Release date: November, 2015

The Bat BD - At a remote country mansion called the Oaks, feisty mystery writer Cornelia Van Gorder (Agnes Moorehead) is dismissive of reports that her new summer home was once the stalking grounds for a mad killer known as the Bat, who slashed out the throats of his victims. Meanwhile at a nearby cabin, Dr. Wells (Vincent Price) is approached at gunpoint by his hunting companion, a bank president (and full-time owner of the Oaks), about a scheme to make off with a million dollars in stolen bonds. A convenient forest fire provides a distraction by which Wells kills the thief in self-defense before learning the location of the money. Along with a colorful assortment of characters, Dr. Wells ends up at the Oaks for a dark, spooky evening which finds the Bat returning to his old murderous habits. Or has he? Blu-ray Release date: November, 2015

The House on Carroll Street BD - This quiet mystery is a nostalgia piece. It's '50s backgrounds are authentic and the plot device -- an innocent becoming entangled in an unbelievable conspiracy -- is closer to one of Hitchcock's masterpieces of that period (e.g., North by Northwest) than to Reservoir Dogs or Speed. The people seem to be from a simpler time, too, when the distinction between good and evil was clearer. Emily shines with idealistic integrity and the naive Cochran is so honest that he finds it impossible to deceive the target of his investigation. There is even a terrifying, "acrophobe's nightmare" scene played out in a dome high above Grand Central Station. For those tired of endless shoot-em-ups and car chases, this is the mystery to choose. Kino Blu-ray Release Date: November 17th, 2015

Edgar Allan Poe's Black Cats: Two Adaptations by Sergio Martino & Lucio Fulci BD - Edgar Allan Poe's celebrated story The Black Cat has provided the inspiration for numerous films over the years. But few adaptations are as stylish as those offered up by the twin Italian titans of terror, Sergio Martino and Lucio Fulci. In Martino s classic giallo Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key, teacher Oliviero (Luigi Pistilli, A Bay of Blood) finds himself under suspicion for murder when one of his students and mistress is found brutally murdered. As more bodies start to pile up, the arrival of Oliviero's attractive niece (Edwige Fenech, Five Dolls for an August Moon, All the Colours of the Dark) brings with it complications of its own. In The Black Cat, from that other Godfather of Gore, Lucio Fulci (Zombie), Scotland Yard Inspector Gorley (David Warbeck, The Beyond) find himself summoned to a sleepy English village to investigate the recent murder of a young couple. With no obvious signs of entry at the murder scene, Gorley is forced to start considering the possibility that his suspect may not be human... Blu-ray Release date: October 26th, 2015

Faust BD - Murnau's last German film features astonishing photography, magnificent art direction, and special effects which retain the power to amaze. Freed from the constraints of psychological narrative, Murnau's mastery of cinematic technique places Faust at the pinnacle of the silent era, its barrage of visceral and apocryphal imagery contrasting with the simplicity and directness of its spiritual theme. Kino Blu-ray Release Date: November 17th, 2015

La Ciudad (The City) - Tthe feature film debut of writer/director David Riker, is a moving tribute to the struggles and hopes of a group of new Latin American immigrants facing the harsh realities of urban America. Reminiscent of THE GRAPES OF WRATH and THE BICYCLE THIEF in its realistic and gritty portrayal, THE CITY delves deep inside this community of newcomers, creating a powerful and incisive drama about the life which they now face in a new and unfamiliar world… A group of men hired to work in an abandoned lot are left stranded in the face of tragedy; A young man arriving from Mexico falls in love with a girl from his home village, only to lose her in the intimidating urban wilderness; A puppeteer living homeless with his daughter dreams that she’ll one day learn to read, but is unable to make his simple dream a reality; and a seamstress, desperate to send money home to help her sick daughter, is trapped working in a sweatshop, eventually rebelling against her employers. A strikingly authentic drama, THE CITY takes us on an eye-opening and heartfelt journey through a world of frustration, hope and sheer will of spirit, and in the process leaves us with an enlightened view of a determined group of struggling contemporary Americans. DVD Release Date: October 13th, 2015

Kyoto - Heart of Japan - Master film director, Kon Ichikawa (1915~2008), along with many of Japan's most important artists presents the treasures of one of the world's most beautiful cities, Kyoto, Japan Filmed at the Ryoanji Temple Stone Garden, the Meditation Hall of Tenryuji Temple, a Geisha residence, the Moss Garden of Saihoji Temple, the Katsura Imperial Villa and the Gion Festival. 37 minutes, colour, 1968 (digitally remastered) Narration in English, Japanese or Italian DVD Release Date: 2015

Dag - Season 1 - Meet Dag, a couple's therapist who holds a 90% divorce rate. His philosophy in life is that people should live alone and he's happy to share that with his patients. Dag leads a quiet life and the only thing he loves more than his solitude is prescription drugs. However, Dag's peaceful existence is about to change radically when Eva enters his life. Dag is a sometimes cynical, yet often heartwarming comedy series, that features a star-studded cast of Norway's most celebrated actors. DVD Release Date: October 5th, 2015

A Borrowed Identity - Gifted Eyad (Tawfeek Barhom), a Palestinian Israeli boy, is given the chance to go to a prestigious Jewish boarding school in Jerusalem. As he desperately tries to fit in with his Jewish schoolmates and within Israeli society, Eyad develops a friendship with another outsider, Jonathan (Michael Moshonov, Lebanon) a boy suffering from muscular dystrophy, and gradually becomes part of the home Jonathan shares with his mother, Edna (Yael Abecassis, Kadosh, Alila, To Live and Become). After falling in love with Naomi (Daniel Kitsis), a Jewish girl, he leaves school when their relationship is uncovered, and he discovers that he will have to sacrifice his identity in order to be accepted. Faced with a choice, Eyad will have to make a decision that will change his life forever. DVD Release Date: October 27th, 2015

Marie's Story - At the turn of the 19th century, a humble artisan and his wife have a daughter, Marie, who is born deaf and blind and unable to communicate with the world around her. Desperate to find a connection to their daughter and avoid sending her to an asylum, the Heurtins send fourteen-year-old Marie to the Larnay Institute in central France, where an order of Catholic nuns manage a school for deaf girls. There, the idealistic Sister Marguerite sees in Marie a unique potential, and despite her Mother Superior's skepticism, vows to bring the wild young thing out of the darkness into which she was born. Based on true events, Marie's Story recounts the courageous journey of a young nun and the lives she would change forever, confronting failures and discouragement with joyous faith and love. DVD Release Date: November 3rd, 2015

Stations of the Cross - Told in fourteen fixed-angle, single shot, individual tableaus that parallel Christ's journey to his own crucifixion, Stations of the Cross is both an indictment of fundamentalist faith and the articulation of an impressionable teen's struggle to find her own path in life. Though from the outside Maria lives in the modern world, her family and her heart are faithful to a Catholic radicalism that requires sacrifice and devotion at every turn. As she struggles to balance her own desires with the dictates of her family's faith, she makes ever more perilous sacrifices, attempting to please a God she worships unquestioningly in the pious hopes of curing the autistic younger brother she adores.
