Savant's new reviews today are:

The Long Hair of Death
Blu-ray

  Ring the bells -- it's time to celebrate whenever prime Eurohorror arrives in such good shape as this, and in Region A, to boot. Barbara Steele has a dual role as both victim and vengeful specter in Antonio Margheriti's medieval murder soap opera, with a little supernatural thrown in to add spice. It's not Margheriti's or Babs' best but it has plenty of what we like -- ample footage of Steele wandering through stone corridors, looking stoned with fear... or menace, depending on which scene. I lunghi capelli della morte had plenty of coverage in old Midi-minuit Fantastiques, and it's great to finally see it uncut, in both Italian (with subs) or English. Also starring George Ardisson, Halina Zalewska and Umberto Raho, in Blu-ray from Rarovideo.

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Blu-ray

  This fascinating story works equally well as a novel, a play or here in Ronald Neame's expertly directed movie version, which pits Dame Maggie Smith (in her Oscar-winning role) against the young contender Pamela Franklin. The dialogue is sharp, the sexual politics genuinely dangerous (a comedy with a teacher having sex with an underage pupil!) and the emotions deep. This is the kind of 'adult' film that the dropping of the Production Code made possible. With Robert Stephens, Celia Johnson and Gordon Jackson, music by Rod McKuen. In Blu-ray from Twilight Time.

Wicked, Wicked
DVD-R

  Twice the Tension! Twice the Terror! Filmed in split-screen "Anamorphic Duo-Vision", Richard L. Bare's exploitation horror film deserved better, just for being different. The acting and directing are nothing to crow about, but the split screen tricks are consistently clever, and well managed for a low-budget production. A mad killer is murdering blonde guests in the Hotel del Coronado, but the management wants to keep it quiet -- even when the hotel's lounge singer is attacked in her room. A pipe organist provides most of the film's musical soundtrack, playing the silent score from The Phantom of the Opera, an idea that works surprisingly well. Madeleine Sherwood, Edd Byrnes, Arthur O'Connell and Scott Brady provide name support, but get ready to hold your ears when the title song is sung. Savant argues the pros and cons of split- and multi-screen movie gimmicks. Seriously. In DVD-R from The Warner Archive Collection.

Hello!

Thanks for the positive responses to, and proofreading help for, the list of DVD Savant Picks for the Most Impressive Discs of 2014. I like the list, they're all titles that I'd happily sit down and watch again, right now.

Just a couple of upcoming disc announcements today, forwarded by Gary Teetzel. Olive Films announced its titles for February, all from MGM: Lady Chatterley's Lover, The Wild Angels, Psych-Out, Caveman, 1969 and Kiss Me Stupid.

And for March: Beach Blanket Bingo, Muscle Beach Party, The Road to Hong Kong and How to Murder Your Wife.

More or less at the same time, The Criterion Collection's the press email for their March releases arrived: The Soft Skin (Truffaut), The Gates of Heaven / Vernon, Florida and The Thin Blue Line (Errol Morris), Cries and Whispers (Bergman), Hoop Dreams (Steve James) and the quirky noir Ride the Pink Horse (Robert Montgomery).

Thanks for reading! --- Glenn Erickson

Savant's new reviews today are:

DVD Savant Picks
The Most Impressive Discs of 2014

  There all here -- twenty favorites this time, each with Savant's squirrely rationalizations for why they're great. Actually, they are great, and 2014 was so good to collectors that a shorter list would not have sufficed. For the first time they're almost all Blu-rays, with a couple of Region B titles elbowing onto the list. Criterion ends up with the most winners -- not necessarily their most prestigious releases, but the most exotic and desirable. I notice that my favorite titles are decades old. The newest 'winner' is a documentary from just last year... about events that happened in 1931. This the fourteenth go-round for this DVD Savant tradition... a holiday look-back at the year in collector's discs.

The Lusty Men
DVD-R

  Nicholas Ray turns a humble rodeo film into an absorbing drama and once again elicits special performances from his actors. Arthur Kennedy is an ambitious contestant, Susan Hayward the wife hungry for the respectability of a house of her own, and Robert Mitchum the drifter who was once a champion. The interesting dynamics and unspoken sexuality on tap are unusually naturalistic for a Code picture. Even better is an opening featuring Mitchum returning to the shack he was born in, finding out that "you can't go home again". It really feels as if Ray was able to express his personal feelings in this one. In DVD-R from The Warner Archive Collection.
12/13/14

Thieves Like Us
Blu-ray

  No, no, the title means "We're Thieves, Man", not "Thieves Are Our Friends". From the same source novel as Nicholas Ray's They Live by Night comes Robert Altman's laid-back, observational take on ignorant Southern bandits and the teenagers that fall in with them because they just don't know any better. It's one of Altman's best for atmosphere and easygoing story telling -- Keith Carradine is the boy who has been in prison since age 14, John Shuck and Bert Remsen are the loose-cannon holdup men who lead him astray, Louise Fletcher is the Black Widow in the family, and the amazing Shelley Duvall is the most touchingly innocent, heartbreakingly loyal girlfriend any cheap gunsel ever had. Altman tells his tale in a sloppy-floppy loose style that grows on us... we're soon believing what we see. Great cinematography by Jean Boffety. In Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.

and

Time Bandits
Blu-ray

  Young schoolboy Craig Warnock joins renegade planetary groundskeepers Randall, Fidgit, Strutter, Og, Wally and Vermin for adventures in thievery through the ages, utilizing a map of time portals filched from the Supreme Being, Ralph Richardson. Terry Gilliam's breakout hit is a marvelous example of epic grandeur created with pure talent, craftsmanship and wicked humor. Ian Holm, Sean Connery and Shelley Duvall show up on the historical timeline, from Ancient Greece to the Napoleonic Wars. It's a triumph of the adventurous imagination, finally in a great restoration, in Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.

Hello!

First up is an essential link, Turner Classic Movies' annual obit montage TCM Remembers. This year's role call is especially sad -- one wishes these people could be "there for us" forever.

A wild time at Savant central early Friday morning, with the strongest rain-and-wind storm I can remember. My house has a good roof but windows with seals that have more or less disintegrated over twenty years -- leaving me running with wastebaskets and towels from room to room at 3am. Living in California, we just don't think about the kind of severe weather others must deal with. Of course, when's the last time a big earthquake hit you folks not living on the volatile Pacific Rim?


Another fun link from the BFI -- a restored print viewable online of the hour-long 1913 British science fiction film A Message from Mars. The restoration is excellent, who needs Interstellar?

Over at Trailers from Hell is the coming attractions for Fast Times at Ridgemont High, hosted by Karyn Kusama.

And although it has already circulated widely readers as fringe-aligned as, Savant might have missed this, so here goes: Saturday Night Live's Star Wars Trailer.

Last note ... the slippery slope countdown to Christmas day has begun. No Savant Newsletter next week... so check back here around Tuesday. Thanks for reading... --- Glenn Erickson


NEWEST FEATURE ARTICLES
Robin Wright at The Congress
  Ari Folman (of Waltz with Bashir) pulls off a difficult existential science fiction movie adapted from ideas of Polish author Stanislaw Lem. An actress (Robin Wright) leases her digitized 'self' to a movie company for completely artificial CG movies; when she returns years later she finds that further improvements of virtual technology have created virtual worlds that one can enter with special drugs. The 'Animated Zone' hosts a Congress to divulge a new wrinkle -- the ability to cross over into a completely new existence in an alternate dimension preferable to life on the crumbling, ruined Earth. This half-animated show attacks some difficult challenges -- and mostly succeeds. Also with Harvey Keitel, Danny Huston, Paul Giamatti and the voice of Jon Hamm. In Blu-ray + Digital Copy from Drafthouse Films.
12/09/14

Hickey and Boggs
  Robert Culp's only directed film is a superior detective show, starring Culp and Bill Cosby as downbeat flatfoots who know that people only hire them for dirty work. Their newest job puts them in the center of a dogfight between loan sharks, mobsters, revolutionaries and bank robbers, not to mention a police force determined to put them out of business. The detectives no longer know why they're working, as both have lost their wives and nobody's applauding their close calls with the bad guys. The vision of Los Angeles extends from a machine gun battle in the Coliseum to a radical hangout in a designer house ready to fall off a Santa Monica cliff. With early roles for Michael Moriarty, James Woods and Vincent Gardenia. In Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
12/09/14

Olive Films' Four Noirs
  Four stylish Paramount films noir now available separately in HD: Alan Ladd in Appointment With Danger, Charlton Heston in Dark City, Burt Lancaster in Rope of Sand and William Holden in Union Station. Mail robberies, femme fatales, crooked gamblers, diamond smugglers and a clever kidnapping figure in tight-scripted crime dramas directed by Lewis Allen, Rudolph Maté and William Dieterle. Four separate-purchase Blu-rays from Olive Films.
12/09/14

Safe
  Todd Haynes's 1995 film starring Julianne Moore is genuinely profound; it's really not about 'environmental allergies' but a psycho-social alienation factor that's a real-world result of the same kinds of fears fantasized in paranoid '50s science fiction. Eerie, convincing, resonant on all levels -- Moore's upscale housewife spends the whole movie apologizing for things beyond her control. The extras further convince us that something's really wrong with the affluent self-obsessed, although one doesn't have to be rich -- we can all feel the undertow. In Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
12/6/14

Vincent Price in Six Gothic Tales by Edgar Allan Poe
  Region B fans finally get their Vincent Price fix, in a widescreen & color bonus box containing six Price-Roger Corman hits: The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, Tales of Terror, The Raven, The Haunted Palace and Tomb of Ligeia. The extras include hour-long docus on Corman and Peter Lorre, literary comparisons by Kim Newman and an amusing piece in which author Anne Billson gives us the horrifying truth about cats in horror films. In Region B Blu-ray from Arrow Video (U.K.).
12/6/14

The Quatermass Xperiment
  Val Guest brings Nigel Kneale's teleplay to the big screen with Yankee Brian Donlevy as a belligerent Professor Quatermass, the rocket project director and red-tape bulldozer. The movie is prime sci-fi gold with a premise that birthed a hundred copycats and variations. Richard Wordsworth is Victor Carroon, the courageous first man into space who comes back infected with a gruesome, horrifying parasite. Thora Hird: "Walking? It was kind of ... crawling!" With great extra interviews with Val Guest by Marcus Hearn. In Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
12/6/14

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
  Frank Capra's most successful movie (or close to it) is an audience grabber that shows a powerhouse cast (James Stewart, Jean Arthur, Claude Rains) in top form. Yokel Senator Jefferson Smith is given a fast lesson in corruption, but proves that the American system wins against daunting odds. Gets the girl, too. The story wants to solve the problem of American innocence with the message that enthusiastic inexperience can clear up our political quagmire, and that "knowing what's right" is the most important ingredient in Democracy. Fine filmmaking, inspiring acting yet the film puts the 'D' in demagoguery. In Blu-ray from Sony.
12/02/14

Birdman of Alcatraz
  Burt Lancaster and John Frankenheimer prove that less is more, in a more or less true story of the federal inmate who rehabilitated himself by raising birds and studying their diseases, all in a solitary prison cell. Fine performances from Karl Malden, Thelma Ritter, Neville Brand, Betty Field and Telly Savalas. The film skews the facts about the famous Robert Stroud, softening his character and actions, but the statements about the prison system aren't false. Music by Elmer Bernstein (with an Isolated Score Track) and great B&W cinematography by Burnett Guffey. In Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
