Papa, You've Finally Heard Me!

Old homos and grandparents alike can share their joy this February, when MGM will finally unveil the DVD they've all been waiting for: Yentl! In a 25th Anniversay Edition, Babs' cross-dressing Jewish musical will make its R1 debut on 3 February, just in time to woo your valentine.

Just in Time (Sorta)...

It's been nearly twenty years since the force known as Grace Jones has released a studio album, and as of Tuesday, her latest album Hurricane is finally out (at least in Japan). It'll make its official US release on the 18th of November, but that doesn't mean you have to wait... the entire album is streaming on her myspace page. And, it's wonderful. It's not too late to change your Halloween costume to your Grace Jones of choice. My friend Bradford has already covered Christmas Grace, as well as View to a Kill Grace, but don't let that stop you. For a taste, check out the official video for her first single, "Corporate Cannibal," below.

Previous 10: 29 October - After the Flood

It's pretty sad news when you only admire one of the past ten 2008 releases, but at least Rachel Getting Married was a keeper. I can't decide, if given the option, whether I'd ask someone to rewrite all the "I'm old" bits of dialogue in the new Indiana Jones movie or to think up a better explanation for that Crystal Skull. Though I quite disliked I've Loved You So Long, I won't be disappointed seeing Kristin Scott Thomas win a number of awards this winter. I might, however, be disappointed to hear a bunch of Charlie Kaufman worshipers call me an idiot for disliking Synecdoche, New York so much... but it's probably worth noting that, for a variety of reasons, it's the first film I've walked out of in a theatre since I saw that horrendous melodrama Second Skin (Segunda piel) with Javier Bardem six years ago (I don't count Hou Hsiao-hsien's Milennium Mambo, which I also ditched before the credits, as it occured during a horrendous date). And, though I'm sure I'm not the first to point this out, Filth and Wisdom has none of the above.

An Official Warhol Disc? Two Hamlets? And Lydia Lunch?

I always wonder whether I should post about DVD announcements as I hear them or stock 'em up to make a big post every so often. I'm not sure how often people check this blog, especially considering I haven't been doing a whole lot of "film writing" lately as a result of finishing up my degree. I'll probably just keep things rolling as I hear them to make it easier. The most exciting news I have today is that Plexifilm will be releasing, "in conjunction with The Andy Warhol Museum," a DVD entitled 13 Most Beautiful... Songs for Andy Warhol's Screen Tests in both standard and limited edition sets. The disc includes thirteen of Warhol's original screen tests, set to optional music by Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips. The thirteen screen tests are of Paul America (star of My Hustler and the Edie Sedgwick starrer Ciao Manhattan!), Susan Bottomly (aka International Velvet), Ann Buchanan, Freddy Herko (dancer/choreographer), Jane Holzer (aka Baby Jane Holzer), Dennis Hopper, Billy Name (artist/photographer), Nico, Richard Rheem, Lou Reed, Edie Sedgwick, Ingrid Superstar and Mary Woronov. This is what Plexifilm has to say about the Limited Edition:

"The limited edition DVD is presented in a deluxe gatefold LP-style package with an exclusive poster and booklet. In addition, one frame from each of the 13 Screen Tests will be hand-printed as an archival gelatin-silver photograph in an edition of 100. One of these individual prints is included in each package. The retail DVD is presented in a slipcovered hard-bound book package."

Both sets will be available on 17 February (although I believe Plexifilm's website incorrectly has the limited set with a release date of 17 January).

Strand will release the film Choose Connor, starring Steven Weber, on 13 January. This will be their first release after not announcing anything for November or December of this year. First Run Features has also announced Hugo Grosso's On Each Side [A cada lado] from Argentina on 20 January. Sony will have Sarah Gavron's Brick Lane on 13 January. As the DVD distributor for Cinema Guild, New Yorker will release Margaret Brown's documentary The Order of Myths on 13 January. And speaking of New Yorker, I forgot to mention that the studio delayed their release of Bill Hanley's The Price of Sugar until 29 April (according to Amazon).

S'more Entertainment/Ryko is releasing Alexander Fodor's directorial debut, Hamlet, an experimental adaptation of the Shakespeare play, on 27 January. I'm only mentioning that Focus Features is releasing Andrew Fleming's mess-of-a-film Hamlet 2 on 23 December to follow the Hamlet theme. MYA Communication, through Ryko, will also release three Italian comedies in January. The first is Luigi Comencini's Bread, Love and Dreams [Pane, amore e fantasia], which stars Vittorio De Sica. The second is Giorgio Bianchi's The Inveterate Bachelor [I zitelloni], which also stars De Sica. The third is a sex comedy from Lucio Fulci called The Maniacs [I maniaci], starring Barbara Steele, Walter Chiari and Margaret Lee. All street on 27 January.

Also through Ryko will be Cult Epics' release of Babeth Mondini-VanLoo's Kiss Napoleon Goodbye. The impressive crew includes Lydia Lunch as both lead actress and writer, Henry Rollins as her co-star, JG Thirlwell as composer and Mike Kuchar as cinematographer. I wasn't able to find a lot of information on this film (it's not on the IMDb), but I'll be sure to let you know once it comes out. Liberation Entertainment has two titles set for January: the dark comedy Just Buried, with Rose Byrne, Thomas Gibson and Graham Greene, and the documentary Girls Rock!. Napoleon, Buried and Girls will also be available on 27 January.

Zeitgeist is releasing Kirby Dick's (This Film Is Not Yet Rated) 1986 doc Private Practices: The Story of a Sex Surrogate about Maureen Sullivan, a "professional sex partner" hired by psychotherapists to bang their clients. It will be available on 27 January. And finally, Netflix shows a release date of 30 December for Alan Ball's Towelhead, which I sadly missed during its short theatrical run. I'm not sure if the film will be available early through Netflix, as their Red Envelope Entertainment co-released it.

Parlez-moi d'amour

Again setting a record for most countries in participation, the official 67 country submissions for the 2009 Academy Awards have been announced, via IndieWire. The notables include Entre les murs (from France), 3 Monkeys (from Turkey), Everlasting Moments (from Sweden), My Magic (from Singapore), Salt of This Sea (from Palestine), O' Horten (from Norway), Tulpan (from Kazakhstan), Gomorra (from Italy), Waltz with Bashir (from Israel), Tony Manero (from Chile), Last Stop 174 (from Brazil), Eldorado (from Belgium) and Lion's Den (from Argentina). Of course, with this category's shitty track record, none of the above will get nominated, even as the Academy tries and tries to fix their shameful mistakes. You can read the full list here.

Date Changes and 2009 Releases for Warner and Criterion

First off, there's been a few changes in things I've posted earlier. Firstly, I'm pretty sure Universal will not be releasing a stand alone disc for Arabesque on 4 November when they release the Gregory Peck set. Also, The Weinstein Company has yet again changed Vicky Cristina Barcelona, now set for 27 January, instead of earlier in the month.

New Yorker has also changed the dates on a number of their releases. The new dates, which still might change and might be delayed, are as follows: Camp de Thiaroye (11 Nov), Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands (9 Dec), The Last Klezmer (18 Nov), Moses and Aaron (25 Nov), Six in Paris (21 Oct), Still Life (11 Nov) and Woman on the Beach (9 Dec).

Criterion announced a slim line-up for January, which includes Douglas Sirk's Magnificent Obsession, with Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson, on 20 January, Gregory Nava's El Norte on 20 January and Roberto Rossellini's The Taking of Power by Louis XVI [La prise de pouvoir par Louis XVI] on 13 January. The Magnificent Obsession disc will also include John M. Stahl's version of the same novel from 1935. Their Eclipse set will include three historical films from Rossellini: The Age of Medici [L'età di Cosimo de Medici], Blaise Pascal and Cartesius [Cartesio], all set for 13 January.

Warner has already announced a bunch of titles for 2009; new ones include a deluxe edition of Hal Ashby's Being There, starring Peter Sellers, Shirley MacLaine and Jack Warden, for 3 February. They will also release a Natalie Wood boxset, which includes several new-to-DVD titles. The set includes Elia Kazan's Splendor in the Grass, Richard Quine's Sex and the Single Girl (new), Robert Mulligan's Inside Daisy Clover (new), a deluxe edition of Mervyn LeRoy's Gypsy, Gordon Douglas' Bombers B-52 (new) and Joseph Pevney's Cash McCall (new), as well as a number of shorts. Not included in the set but announced for a separate release is Douglas Trumbull's Brainstorm, which stars Wood, Christopher Walken and Louise Fletcher. Brainstorm and the Wood boxset will street on 3 February.

Warner will also be releasing Max Baer Jr.'s Ode to Billy Joe, with Robby Benson, on 10 February. They've also set a new date for John Frankenheimer's TV docudrama George Wallace, which stars Gary Sinese, Mare Winningham and Angelina Jolie, for 20 January.

Sony announced a Michael Powell double-feature, which includes A Matter of Life and Death, with David Niven, Kim Hunter and Richard Attenborough, and Age of Consent, with Helen Mirren and James Mason. It will be out on 6 January. Sony has also announced the Duplass brothers' Baghead for 30 December. That looks like all for now.

14 October 2008


I was extremely saddened to hear that Guillaume Depardieu, the actor son of Gérard, passed away yesterday at the age of 37. GreenCine reports that he died of pneumonia. This is very sad news indeed. Guillaume followed brilliantly in his father's footsteps, taking on challenging roles with skilled directors. He currently has two films playing in theatres in France: De la guerre, alongside Mathieu Amalric and Asia Argento, and Versailles. He was currently filming Alex Iordachescu's L'Enfance d'Icare with Alysson Paradis and set to act in his first English-language film Men Don't Lie with Michael Madsen, Leo Gregory and Margo Stilley. He shall be missed.

The Saint Louis International Film Festival 2008

For all of those living in the ‘Lou, the 17th Annual Saint Louis International Film Festival line-up has been announced for the dates of Nov. 13-23. Although you can check out the schedule in pdf form here, I thought I might point out some of the more exciting inclusions this year. SLIFF will be awarding writer/director Paul Schrader a Lifetime Achievement Award and will screen his latest film Adam Resurrected, starring Jeff Goldbum, Willem Dafoe, Moritz Bleibtreu and Derek Jacobi, as well as a restored print of Mishima: A Life in Four Parts. Following the screening of Adam Resurrected, LA Weekly film editor Scott Foundas will have a Q&A with the director.

A “Micro-Budget Filmmaking Seminar” will be conducted on the 15th at 11 am at the Tivoli. Mary Bronstein, who co-starred in Ronald Bronstein’s Frownland and whose directorial debut Yeast will be screened during the fest, is going to be one of the participants, as well as Missouri native Blake Eckard (Sinner Come Home) and St. Louisan Aaron Coffmann (Texas Snow). In addition to Bronstein’s Yeast, another mumblecore flick, Nights and Weekends, written, directed and starring Joe Swanberg and Greta Gerwig will also be screening at this year’s fest.

Humboldt County co-directors Darren Grodsky and Danny Jacobs, both hailing from Saint Louis, are also making an appearance this year with a Q&A and after-party which opens the festival. The film, which premiered at this year’s SXSW fest and was just recently distributed theatrically by Magnolia, stars Fairuza Balk, Peter Bogdanovich, Frances Conroy, Brad Dourif and Chris Messina.

Steven Soderbergh’s absent-on-DVD King of the Hill, which was set and shot in Saint Louis, will be featured in a panel discussion about the translation from the book to film. There’s also going to be a film noir seminar, following a screening of Joseph Losey’s The Prowler (his last film shot in the US and also unavailable on DVD in the US). The panel will include noir expert Eddie Muller and actress Marsha Hunt, who was blacklisted from Hollywood. And rounding up the special events is a Q&A with Michael Apted (the Up! series), recipient of this year’s Maysles Brothers Lifetime Achievement Award in Documentary, conducted by Cinema Saint Louis executive director Cliff Froehlich. His latest film, The Power of the Game, will also screen this year.

And onto the big gals of this year’s fest. Darren Aronofsky’s Venice and Toronto winner The Wrestler, starring Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood and Judah Friedlander, will close the fest before the film makes its theatrical run in the middle of December. Palme d’Or winner The Class (Entre les murs), from writer/director Laurent Cantet, is also screening on the 22nd.

Philippe Claudel’s I’ve Loved You So Long (Il y a longtemps que je t’aime), starring Kristin Scott-Thomas and Elsa Zylberstein as sisters, will also screen on closing night before it hits local theatres soon. Bent Hamer’s O’ Horten is also showing, after receiving a number of praises when it played at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Danny Boyle’s crowd-pleaser of a film, Slumdog Millionaire, will play on the 15th.

Kelly Reichardt’s much anticipated follow-up to Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, which stars Michelle Williams, is also set for the 17th. I should mention that Wendy and Lucy is probably my most anticipated film to premiere at SLIFF this year. The new film from Rian Johnson (Brick), The Brothers Bloom, is playing on the 22nd. The film, which will make its limited theatrical run beginning 19 December from Summit Entertainment, stars Rachel Weisz, Adrien Brody, Mark Ruffalo, Robbie Coltrane and Rinko Kikuchi, whom you should remember as the jumper-lifting deaf girl from Babel.

As for the hot docs, Terence Davies’ Of Time and the City will screen on the 15th. I wish I could remember who exactly said it, but someone, via GreenCine Daily, called the film the real masterpiece of this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Ari Folman’s Waltz with Bashir, which also premiered at Cannes and will be Israel’s official submission for next year’s foreign language Oscar, will also be spotlighted on the closing day of the festival.

As for a few smaller films to pay attention to, I’ve read some wonderful things about Aditya Assarat’s Wonderful Town, from Thailand, which will play on the 18th. Marco Bellocchio’s The Wedding Director (Il regista di matrimoni), which stars Sergio Castellitto of Va savoir, The Last Kiss and Mostly Martha, screens on the 20th and 22nd. Beloved director Giuseppe Tornatore (whom, as you should know, I quite despise) has his most recent film, The Unknown Woman (La sconsciuta), set for the 14th and 15th. Reha Erdem’s Times and Winds, which is one of two films I’ve seen prior to the fest, is playing on the 15th. Nic Balthazar’s Ben X, the other film I’ve already seen, is playing on the 21st and 22nd. It should be mentioned that I much preferred Times and Winds to Ben X.

Director John Boorman’s (The General, Deliverance) The Tiger’s Tail, which stars Brendan Gleeson, Kim Cattrall, Ciarán Hinds and Sinéad Cusack, will screen on both the 19th and 20th. Nacho Vigalondo’s sci-fi/horror film Timecrimes (Los cronocrímenes) will screen on the 19th, before Magnolia’s Magnet Releasing puts it in theatres sometime in December. According to the schedule, David Cronenberg is set to return to his horror roots and remake the film. The schedule also reports that Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In (Låt den rätte komma in), which screens on the 15th and is also going to be released by Magnet, is also getting a Hollywood remake (although much less exciting as it's to be directed by the asshole who made Cloverfield).

Eric Guirado’s The Grocer’s Son (Le fils de l’épicier) is going to play on the 16th and 17th. The film, which stars Nicolas Cazalé and Clotilde Hesme (Love Songs), was reported through IndieWire as being Film Movement’s highest grossing film in their existence. Also from France is Nicolas Klotz’s The Heartbeat Detector (La question humaine), which screens on the 18th and 19th, starring Mathieu Amalric. For those who can’t make it, New Yorker released the DVD back in July. Yang Li’s Blind Mountain, which hits DVD from Kino in January, will play on the 14th. And finally, Joseph Cedar’s Beaufort, which was nominated for a Best Foreign Film Academy Award for Israel this year, will show on the 21st and 23rd (although Kino released the DVD at the end of September).

I should be seeing a number of these films before the festival goes underway, so if any of the films happen to strike me, I’ll be sure to point you in their direction.

11 October 2008

And a few more...

A number of these titles are off my radar, but they may be of some interest to you. Firstly, Lionsgate has pushed their release of Drugstore Cowboy as part of the Meridian Collection to 3 February, which is good news because it was starting to look like I got some wrong information about the release.

Dimension/Weinstein Company have also delayed Eden Lake by a week, now set for 6 January. The Weinstein Company have also announced the release of Alan Cumming's first turn as director without Jennifer Jason Leigh, originally titled Suffering Man's Charity, now going by the more generic Ghost Writer. The film's expansive cast includes Cumming, Carrie Fisher, Anne Heche, Karen Black, David Boreanaz, Henry Thomas and Jane Lynch. The film is set for 6 January.

Watchmaker Films is releasing Eagle Pennell's The Whole Shootin' Match, from 1979, on 13 January. According to the IMDb, Robert Redford said something about this film being the inspiration for his Sundance Film Festival. Image Entertainment will release Oxide Pang Chun's thriller Diary on 3 February.

And, Shout Factory! has announced a few titles for January. First off is Michael O'Donoghue's Mr. Mike's Mondo Video, which features, among others, Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin, Carrie Fisher (again), Teri Garr, Debbie Harry, Margot Kidder, Bill Murray, Laraine Newman, Gilda Radner and Paul Shaffer. Expect it on 13 January. Also on the lineup is Roger Graef's The Secret Policeman's Ball, making its US premiere. The film features Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese, Billy Connolly and Pete Townshend, again among others; the benefit concert film streets on 20 January. And finally, Al Silliman Jr.'s The Stewardesses, a 3-D erotica which the IMDb lists as one of the most profitable (cost vs gross) films of all time. That'll be out on 27 January. All for now.

10 October 2008

2009 Catalogue DVDs

Most excitingly, Koch Lorber will be releasing Pavel Lungin's wonderful Taxi Blues on DVD on 13 January; it will be their only release for the month. The film won the Best Director prize at Cannes in 1990. Kino will release Li Yang's Blind Mountain on 6 January.

Warner has announced a number of "romance" films previously unavailable in the US for January. The films include John Schlesinger's Far from the Madding Crowd (with Julie Christie, Terence Stamp, Alan Bates and Peter Finch), David S. Ward's Cannery Road (with Nick Nolte and Debra Winger), Mervyn LeRoy's Waterloo Bridge (with Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor) and Anthony Asquith's The Yellow Rolls-Royce (with Ingrid Bergman, Jeanne Moreau, Rex Harrison, Alain Delon, Shirley MacLaine, George C. Scott and Omar Sharif). All street on 27 January.

Chasing Cars!

My worlds collided today when I watched both How Tasty Was My Little Frenchman and selected skits from this past week's Saturday Night Live. Did anyone make the connection that when The Frenchman is finally assimilated into the tribe, he gets a haircut similar to that of Kristen Wiig's on the Lawrence Welk skit this past weekend when Anne Hathaway hosted? I guess high fashion never dies. Or maybe I just wanted to draw your attention to how fucking hysterical Wiig is. Oh well.

Previous 10: 7 October

A few remarks about the films below. 1.) Hunger is easily the finest film among these ten, but it may not get an official US release before the new year. If that's the case, void it and get it ready for 2009's best of. 2.) The Happening is easily the worst film on this list. I can appreciate those who found it howlingly awful, but it really has nothing going for it, unlike something like The Fountain. And yes Zooey Deschanel, who threw away any "hip cred" she wanted to get with her album after appearing in this film, looks like that photo I chose during the entire film. 3.) Even though I included The Visitor on the top list, I wasn't moved by it as so many others seemed to have been. Instead, I thought it was just a fine acting showcase for Richard Jenkins and Haaz Sleiman. 4.) I debated where Forgetting Sarah Marshall should fall on here, as I think I liked it, but couldn't say that I laughed much. It's the same way I felt about Knocked Up, but Knocked Up was pretty much better on every level. I guess I don't find the zany antics of male insecurity that funny. Hmmm. 5.) Jason Patric and Samantha Morton are perfect in Expired, and I know you've also missed seeing Illeana Douglas onscreen as I have.
