Savant's new reviews today are:

Chinese Puzzle
Blu-ray

  Cédric Klapisch's third 'Xavier Rousseau' film takes our hero to New York -- but he's still deeply involved in the lives of several women -- two old lovers, an ex-wife and interesting other prospects. The mellowing of the character as he approaches forty suddenly involves juggling children and helping a childless couple conceive. Even if one is new to the series, what begins as a flashy story of trendy international folk soon develops into a romantic drama with a strong emotional draw. With Romain Duris, Audrey Tatou, Cécile De France, Kelly Reilly, Sandrine Holt, Li Jun Li, Linda Chan. In Blu-ray from The Cohen Collection.

Mulholland Falls
Blu-ray

  It can't lose -- Nick Nolte, Chazz Palminteri, Michael Madsen and Chris Penn make a formidable team as the LAPD's anti-mob unit, the Hat Squad. Melanie Griffith is the loyal wife and Jennifer Connelly the 'spectacular' call girl. Plenty of gangland action then takes a left turn into an atomic conspiracy with a dying general and a murderous coverup. All the ingredients are first-rate, including director Lee Tamahori. So what happened? Why isn't the movie a classic? Savant has some notes on a longer rough cut once viewed at MGM. In Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.

La dolce vita
Blu-ray

  We were all there: wading in the fountain with with Anita Ekberg occupies the same dream space as standing over the subway grating with Marilyn Monroe. Federico Fellini's giant 1960 art house hit exposes Roman decadence while suggesting that its hero Marcello Mastroianni is itching for moral and spiritual rebirth. It's dazzling filmmaking that still keeps its feet on level ground, unless we're talking about flying statues of Jesus. It's also the party that never ends on the Via Veneto -- and the source of the word 'paparazzi'. With a dazzling cast -- Anouk Aimée, Yvonne Furneaux, Magali Noël, Alain Cuny, Audrey McDonald, Adriana Moneta, Laura Betti, Nico, Jacques Sernas, Nadia Gray. In Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.

The Incredible Melting Man
Region B Blu-ray + PAL DVD

  You Will Believe that a man can become a Human Puddle! A significant 1978 release that showed everywhere with heavy advertising -- this is perhaps the most impressive Meaningless Monster Amuck film ever. The muck angle gets a major workout, what with special makeup effects by Rick Baker that make an unlucky spaceman into the Scary Tallow Fellow, who Waxes Unenthusiastic. Kids hooted and jeered at the gore, making their own pizza-face jokes while the Melting Man's facial features sag lower and lower. Surprisingly entertaining, especially in this exceptionally good transfer. A Dual-Format edition in Region B Blu-ray and PAL DVD from Arrow Video (U.K.).

Hello! Today's Savant news is primarily about special screenings in Los Angeles.

From friend-of-DVD Savant David Strohmaier: In celebration of the Cinerama films Seven Wonders of the World and Search for Paradise, to be released by Flicker Alley on Blu ray this November 18th, Hollywood's Cinerama Dome will present next week a special advance screening of each restored film on the big curved screen.

Seven Wonders of the World: Saturday November 1 at 11:00 AM.  Seven Wonders of the World Trailer

Search for Paradise: Sunday November 2 at 11:00 AM ... (beware daylight savings time)  Search For Paradise Trailer

David adds for locals that a special 70mm screening of 2001: A Space Odyssey will be held that same Sunday afternoon.



The second screening series: On three successive November Friday nights DVD Savant mentor Arianné Ulmer Cipes will be on hand at the L.A. County Museum of Art to introduce six of Edgar G. Ulmer's best pictures. The film series is entitled Ulmer After Expressionism:

On November 7 it's a double bill of femmes fatale: Detour and The Strange Woman;
On November 14, think European art: People on Sunday and The Light Ahead (with Billy Wilder, Fred Zinnemann and Robert Siodmak;
On November 21 horror of the gothic and political kind: The Black Cat and Ruthless.

Savant's new reviews today are:

Audrey Rose
Blu-ray

  From Frank De Felitta's best selling novel, this Robert Wise picture is the most confoundingly prestigious/frustrating horror offering of the '70s, a dumber-than Pazuzu Exorcist follow-up that torments a little girl for two hours, for the apparent purpose of getting us to accept the Eastern religious concept of reincarnation. It's not a thriller, it's an infomercial. Fine acting by Marsha Mason and an exceptionally winning performance by Anthony Hopkins only convince this reviewer that all rationality has been revoked. The excellent transfer and encoding will definitely please fans of what I can't help but think is a profoundly ill-conceived movie. In Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
10/21/14

The Hunted
DVD

  (1948) Jack Bernhard's minor noir gives us a hardboiled romance clouded by mutual suspicions of betrayal. Preston Foster is the cop who busted his lady love for jewel theft, and the fetching Belita the ice skater who claims she was framed -- and also threatened to kill both Foster and her own attorney. It's a good movie that might have been better if Allied Artists' tiny budget hadn't pulled the ice rink out from under Steve Fisher's promising original screenplay. With a brief but effective acting contribution by Charles McGraw as (what else?) a gravel-voiced cop. In DVD-R from The Warner Archive Collection.
10/21/14

Topkapi
Blu-ray

  Jules Dassin films the flip side of his pessimistic Rififi in this brightly colored comic caper comedy set in the exotic city of Istanbul. A gang of crooks trick the nervous Peter Ustinov into sneaking across the rooftops of the fabulous Topkapi Museum, there to snatch a priceless treasure for the greedy-but-inspired temptress Melina Mercouri. The former master of noir doom Dassin seems equally inspired; the amusing performances and the bouyant music of Manos Hadjidakis are guaranteed uppers. The marvelous Ustinov won a second Oscar; also with Robert Morley and terrific location cinematography. In Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
10/21/14

and

Werewolf Woman
Blu-ray

  La lupa mannara. Savant hasn't reviewed a slimy '70s Italo horror exploitation picture in quite a while, and Rino Di Silvestro's porn-inflected horror spectacle more than fits the bill. Haunted by a lycanthropic ancestor, Annik Borel commits savage werewolf-like acts of murder every eight minutes or so. The movie comes with a sort-of guarantee: to go all feral, she must first see a sex act in progress, be herelf sexually assaulted or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. Borel is certainly game as she and the makeup man providing the gore go at throats with a passion. But the film's essential artistic ambition is to billboard as much salacious, sleazy nudity in every scene. Is this a slam or a recommendation? With Frederick Stafford, whom Alfred Hitchcock definitely did not advise on Topaz, "I think you need to make a werewolf-sex film someday." In Blu-ray from Rarovideo.
10/21/14




Hello!

I'm sorry today to note the passing of Robert (Bob) Porfirio, one of the most interesting and talented colleagues from the UCLA Film School. Back then I knew him only in passing, as he was soon busy teaching American Studies at Cal State Fullerton.

With Carl Macek, Bob wrote one of the first serious studies of film noir, The Dark Age of American Film. I knew him best through his many entries in the most influential book in English on the subject, Film Noir, An Encyclopedic Reference to the American Style. Thumb through the book and you'll find that many of the most insightful analyses of individual films carry his initials, B.P.. This was in 1979, way before Film Noir became a household word, and before the advent of home video made it easier to track down old movies. At that early date Bob and his colleagues had already come to the conclusion, still widely accepted, that Noir was a style, not a genre. Bob's film writing is both precise and expressive. He had a knack for communicating intelligence, and could distill the essence of a film in just a couple of paragraphs.

Bob was also a rigorous academic well versed in the refinements of advanced film studies, and had been published in Sight and Sound and Continuum. A few years back I was able to meet him again through Marshall Crawford, a Savant contact who knew Bob much more closely. Bob conducted a successful second career in Real Estate and had a beautiful house in Oceanside; when we got together he was preparing to leave for France to spend more time with one of his daughters. A brilliant man, he was also friendly and generous.




In other news, Criterion's massive The Complete Jacques Tati box has arrived, and just as promised, it lists three versions of his first film Jour de fête, the movie filmed with an experimental color process that the inventor found wouldn't let him strike a viewing print. We'll get the original B&W version, a partly colorized 1964 version and the full-color 1995 release version, when digital tools allowed the original materials to finally be properly combined. At least, I think that's an accurate description of how the story went. I've heard from Savant readers about this for years, and now I'll be able to see it for myself.

In an even lighter mood, if you still like good 'Hijacked Hitler' spoof clips, I can recommend Brad Stevens' Hitler video about Paramount's Blu-ray release of Once Upon a Time in the West. It certainly reflects my experience with the world of Sergio Leone worship. I was starting to feel uncomfortable part-way through, when I thought der Führer might launch into a tirade about the extras on MGM's Leone special editions from ten years back. I guess Adolf and me are still on good terms.

Finally, a link to a strange bit of digital animation on the This Isn't Happiness page ... I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up! nbsp;The little video struck me as a metaphor for, well, lots of things. Whattaya want here, some kind of savant? My son, an advanced computer programmer, told me that digital 'crowd dynamics' scenes like this one are programmed and launched like probability equations. The little figures just do what they do until they come into contact with other items placed in the environment -- the programmer is playing God. He told me about seeing test shots for Lord of the Rings etc, where mis-programmed pixel-people walk around with arms and legs but missing their bodies, etc. Anyway, I was intrigued. It looks especially detailed on a large monitor.

Thanks for reading -- ! Glenn Erickson


NEWEST FEATURE ARTICLES
Shivers
  (They Came from Within)   David Cronenberg's first commercial feature is barely more than a softcore porn film, but in conception and execution it's a little masterpiece. All of Cronenberg's main horror themes are here, in an "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"- like tale that makes perfect biological sense. Barbara Steele has an enticing and revealing supporting role. The extras are excellent -- a key reason to consider accessing foreign-produced Blu-rays. A Dual-Format edition in Region B Blu-ray and PAL DVD from Arrow Video UK.
10/18/14

Fedora
  Billy Wilder's last good movie is an intense, curious critique of Hollywood, a round-up of previous Wilder situations and a strange thriller that stops midway to explain itself through extended flashbacks. It's all to tell the story of a retired legend, a sort of malign Greta Garbo who goes too far to maintain her glorious image. With a terrific cast -- William Holden, Marthe Keller, Hildegard Knef, José Ferrer, Frances Sternhagen and (ulp) Stephen Collins. It's a new restoration of what was once a difficult-to-see title. In Blu-ray from Olive Films.
10/18/14

Yankee Doodle Dandy
  THE most successful all-time patriotic crowdpleaser tells the happy story of George M. Cohan, the toast of Broadway who wrote both songs and plays and performed as well. If he wasn't a legend already, star James Cagney seals the deal in some of the most energy-charged dance scenes ever. The delightful Joan Leslie takes second billing with Walter Huston and Rosemary DeCamp not far behind. With a ton of "Warner Night at the Movies" extras, including impressive newsreels and a frightening WW2 morale propaganda movie that pushes the edge of the format. In Blu-ray (even the cartoon extras) from The Warner Archive Collection.
10/18/14

Nightcap
 (Merci pour le chocolat)   Claude Chabrol rolls out a cultivated mystery about domestic murder -- or the threat of same. Isabel Huppert leads an attractive cast in this low-key tale about a wealthy Swiss family, a famous pianist and his new pupil, babies switched at birth and a quiet, undetected psychopathic killer. Great music from the director's son is here, along with the Chabrol mark of even-handed calm from which dastardly crimes always seems to emerge. And since this is Switzerland, don't forget to drink your chocolate. In Blu-ray from The Cohen Collecion.
10/18/14

True Confessions
  An impressive pairing of actors Robert DeNiro and Robert Duvall elevates this drama of corruption in late- '40s Los Angeles to an unheralded classic. Ulu Grosbard's strong direction highlights a script about brothers dealing with a scandal so big, there's no way to do the right thing without doing terrible harm as well. The supporting cast is magnificent: Charles Durning, Rose Gregorio, Kenneth McMillan, Ed Flanders, Cyril Cusack, Burgess Meredith. It isn't neo-noir, it's period noir of the best kind, inspired by the famous Black Dahlia case. In Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
10/14/14

Dragonfly Squadron
  This unique disc is the premiere of a 1953 3-D movie that was never publicly exhibited in stereo until a recent restoration by the 3-D Film Archive. John Hodiak is commanding a Korean fighter plane field when hostilities break out, and the North Koreans' Russian tanks are on the way. Barbara Britton is the doctor's wife he's fallen in love with, while other parts are filled by Gerald Mohr, Chuck Connors and Adam Williams. The vintage 3-D has been well restored for this modest but entertaining Cold War pot-boiler. Who's the Commie spy sabotaging the planes? In Blu-ray + 3-D from Olive Films.
10/14/14

Steven Spielberg Director's Collection
  Universal offers new Blu-rays of several Spielberg titles in conjunction with a couple of shows that fans have most likely already bought -- it's like the Alfred Hitchcock Collections, all over again! But the image and sound quality of what's offered is top-rank. Jaws, E.T., Jurassic Park and The Lost World; Jurassic Park 2 are back, but the Blus of Duel and Sugarland Express are new, and the disc of 1941 includes the theatrical cut and the extended (by almost half an hour) preview version, both beautifully restored picture and sound. It's a pricey, tempting package! Blu-ray from Universal Home Entertainment.
10/14/14

The Blob
  Chuck Russell and Frank Darabont had a hit with this remake of the 1958 creep 'n' leap classic. No Steve McQueen this time but the same exact story with the addition of a government conspiracy, a willingness to kill off all the interesting characters, and a surfeit of gory blob attacks. The victims melting and dissolving really look inconvenienced. Twilight Time includes plenty of extras on this '80s favorite that's bound to be an early sell-out, even with the company's thoughtful new policies that discourage scalpers. In Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
