Savant's new reviews today are:

The Complete Jacques Tati
Blu-ray

  All in new HD restorations, Jacques Tati's entire feature output is presented together -- Jour de Fête, Monsieur Hulot's Holiday, Mon Oncle, PlayTime, Trafic and Parade -- and grouped with dozens of featurettes, visual essays, interviews and vintage documentaries. Plus a number of Tati's short subjects, and two by his daughter. Jour de Fête is present in three versions, Monsieur Hulot's Holiday in two, and PlayTime was mastered from 70mm. It's an amazing run of films, culminating in the awe-inspiring PlayTime. In Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.

Lolly-Madonna XXX
DVD-R

  Richard C. Sarafian's 1973 hillbilly feud epic sank like a rock in the theaters, but now creates more than enough interest to merit revival from the dead. Actors Rod Steiger and Robert Ryan are the warring patriarchs; Jeff Bridges and Gary Busey peaceniks on opposite sides of the fence. Scott Wilson, Kiel Martin,Timothy Scott, Ed Lauter, Randy Quaid are the sons that take up arms, and Season Hubley an innocent girl brought into the fray via mistaken identity. The performances are compelling, even if we wonder what the movie's overall point might be. In DVD-R from The Warner Archive Collection.
10/28/14

Under Fire
Blu-ray

  Roger Spottiswoode directs this exciting, tense tale of journalists risking their lives to get the story in 1979 Nicaragua, as the Sandinistas seize power from the corrupt Anastasio Somoza. There's a glamour factor at work, with Nick Nolte and Joanna Cassidy quite a romantic couple as they dodge bullets, as well as Jean-Paul Trintignant's treacherous Frenchman and Ed Harris' murderous soldier of fortune. Gene Hackman is the news anchor who catches our lover-heroes breaking the first rule of their profession -- they choose sides and help the rebels. TT's special edition has all of their usual extras, plus commentaries with the director and a real combat photographer. In Blu-ray from Twilight Time.

and

Possessed (1947)
Blu-ray

  The latest Joan Crawford chewed-scenery epic to reach Blu-ray is a psycho-noir potboiler about a nurse who goes bonkers after being dumped by a heel played by Van Heflin. What seems like the back-story to Double Indemnity is a jumble of psychological voodoo, goofy flashbacks and a few inspired bits of insanity, as when off-her-rocker Joan experiences events twice -- once as she imagines them and once as they really transpire. Oh, the production is excellent, as is the moody photography, high Warners gloss and music by Franz Waxman. In Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.

Hello!

A quick Halloween rundown here at Savant Central, where we curl up every year to watch some appropriately nostalgic horror show. Past favorites have been marvelous part- comedies like Mystery of the Wax Museum, Dr. X and The Fearless Vampire Killers, but you may not have the patience to watch a show again and again. This year I want to re-visit Criterion's Island of Lost Souls, if I can locate it in time... organizing discs in the depths of Savant Caverns is a lost cause. When in doubt I'll default to some lovably klunky Z-picture. Robot Monster and Teenagers from Outer Space have never let me down. But there's always the marvelous Carnival of Souls. I think it must be the organ music that pulls me into that one.

I have close Savant associates that start wondering in January what the October horror disc releases will be. What's come out that's new that got my attention this year? I shall review the files. The Warner Archives' Wicked, Wicked (in Duo-Vision) was just released today, too late to order in time; if a review copy comes my way it won't be for a couple of weeks. I'd also like to recommend Kino/Scorpion's Planet of the Vampires, the stylish Mario Bava space horrorshow, but haven't seen that yet either.

Going back to September, here's what I covered that I can recommend: Criterion's serial killer film Vengeance is Mine is so creepy, it qualifies as a horror selection. Kino's The Death Kiss will interest Bela Lugosi fans. It isn't really a horror entry but if you're into audio commentaries, it has a good one. Criterion strikes again with Eraserhead, which needs no introduction, except to keep it away from expectant mothers. Sony's BD combo of the Ghostbusters movies may fit the bill, and folks looking for the best of the best should surely seek out The Innocents some time in their lives -- Criterion's BD is a distinct improvement over Region B discs.

The big ticket items this Fall were large boxed sets. Universal's Classic Monsters Collection gathers up all the "A" and "A-" spook shows from that studio, for those that haven't been buying them twice over since DVD began. The beautiful color transfers in Scream! Factory's BD set The Vincent Price Collection II really opened our eyes... "Morgan, come OUT!"

Moving into October, Twilight Time's disc of the 1988 The Blob roused the disc-buying public, many of whom appear to be the perfect age to covet '80s fringe cinema. Also from Twilight Time, Audrey Rose looks great too, if you go for a possession thriller that turns into a courtroom drama. I don't cover too much Eurotrash, but the sleazy Werewolf Woman was too extreme to resist.

Thanks to Arrow Video I was also able to review a string of Region B Blu-rays, some of which are partly duplicated in Region A releases from other companies. U.K. fans love Arrow. They released great editions of Joe Dante's The 'Burbs, Night of the Comet and David Cronenberg's creep-out classic Shivers (They Came from Within).

Let me know what you've found to brighten October 31st ... all of a sudden I have an urge to revisit Messiah of Evil, from my college years . If you're stuck answering the door with candy, consider reading some of the reviews I've linked to for the movies, above. I tend to go overboard writing about this genre.

Thanks for reading --!  Glenn Erickson

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.
10/25/14

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.
10/25/14

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.

and

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

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.

Thanks for reading -- ! Glenn Erickson


NEWEST FEATURE ARTICLES
Audrey Rose
  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
  (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
  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

Werewolf Woman
  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

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.
