The Crying Game by James-Masaki Ryan (19th February 2017)

“The Crying Game” (1992) Jody (played by Forest Whitaker) is a British soldier who gets kidnapped by members of the Irish Republican Army in order for an exchange of prisoners. Watching over him is Fergus (played by Stephen Rea), who starts feeling a bit of sympathy for the terrified yet somehow positive Jody. Whether it was arguing about if cricket or hurling was a better sport or Jody showing his picture of the love of his life - the beautiful Dil (played by Jaye Davidson) from his wallet, the two men start a companionship with occasional smiles rather than the normal prisoner and guard relationship. Jody is still willing to die for his country and tells Fergus that after he dies to make sure to find Dil in London and tell her that Jody loved her. When the time comes for the prisoner’s execution, the British Army storms the area and inadvertently and shockingly kills Jody in the process. Fergus is able to flee, and with nowhere to go and on the run, decides to take the voyage from Northern Ireland to Great Britain to find Dil....


The King of New Orleans by Robert Segedy (18th February 2017)

I have never had the pleasure of taking a trip to New Orleans, but if I ever did, then I want Larry Shirt (David Jensen) to pick me up at the airport, offer me a cold beer from the cooler, and have him chauffer me around the Big Easy. Larry Shirt is that one in a million cabdriver that actually listens to what his passengers have to say and in "The King of New Orleans" we get the pleasure of riding shotgun with him as he does much more than just earn a living. As the film begins we see a montage of the various passengers that enter his cab; these are the city’s real entities, and they range from ordinary tourists to the more interesting denizens of the city. Amongst the hustler’s, recently released jailbirds and musicians, Larry makes the acquaintance of Bobby Cohn (Richard Brien); a Harvard student that is facing some hard times after a personal crisis has resulted in his expulsion from the prestigious school. Feeling down and out, Bobby has made his way back home in shame, hoping to get his act together and to forget the girl that broke his heart. The cab driver and the ex-student exchange some words and Larry in an act of kindness tr...


Bad Santa 2: Unrated by Robert Segedy (18th February 2017)

I believe that comedy is one of the hardest forms of drama to master; what is funny to me, may not strike you as humorous and vice versa. In 2003, Terry Zwigoff struck box-office gold with his story of a miserable conman and his partner posing as department store Santa and elf in order to rip the place off and something about the combination of Billy Bob Thornton’s foul mouthed act and his height challenged partner delighted film goers. So flash forward to 2016 and for those that craved more of these sophomoric hijinks’ here comes the sequel, "Bad Santa 2". Now, I am not a holiday person, let alone one that enjoys holiday themed films, so it was with visibly lowered expectations that I sat down to watch this film and the results were as expected. I am hardly a prudish person and usually enjoy black comedies, but there was something trite and overly familiar with the extended gags in this film experience. Billy Bob Thornton reprises his character from the first film, Willie Soke (get it?), a misanthropic loser that likes the bottle a lot more than his fellow man. After a stint in jail, h...


Tower of London (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (18th February 2017)

Tower of London (Roger Corman, 1962) Beginning in 1483, with Edward IV (Justice Watson) on his deathbed, Roger Corman’s Tower of London (1962) opens with Edward addressing his family, praising his brother Richard’s (Vincent Price) positive influence during a time of turmoil. However, when Edward names his other brother, George, the Duke of Clarence (Charles Macauley), as Protector of the Realm and informs his sons that following his death, they will be kept in the care of George until the eldest of them is old enough to take the throne, Richard exhibits jealousy. Alone with George, Richard sinks a dagger into his brother’s back before dumping the corpse in a vat of wine. George’s disappearance is noted; in private, Richard’s wife Anne condones the murder of George, committed in service of Richard’s ambition and his desire to claim the throne for himself. When George’s body is found, Richard plants a dagger bearing the crest...


An American Trilogy by Eric Cotenas (12th February 2017)

In The American Trilogy, composer turned director Cyril Morin (Borgia) explores common themes of love, sacrifice, corruption, and redemption during three different time periods. The Activist is set in 1973 South Dakota at the height of the American Indian Movement's occupation of Wounded Knee. On the run after an assault on the people he believes murdered his activist wife Anna Ward (187 Shadow Lane's Tonantzin Carmelo) in a mysterious road accident, white AIM lawyer Marvin Brown (Jackie's Chadwick Brown) and Anna's cousin Bud (Dances with Wolves' Michael Spears) are arrested in a sting and jailed in a remote two-man precinct by officers Henry Frasier (...


Empire of the Passions by James-Masaki Ryan (12th February 2017)

“Empire of the Passions” 「愛の亡霊」 (1978) Taking place in 1895 in a rural village in Japan, Gisaburo (played by Takahiro Tamura) and his wife Seki (played by Kazuko Yoshiyuki) live a seemingly normal life with their two children. Gisaburo is a cart puller bringing goods from town to town while Seki works at the local restaurant as a waitress. Things start getting complicated when the youthful and rambunctious Toyoji (played by Tatsuya Fuji) comes back to town. Gisaburo even jokes around that Toyoji might have an eye on his wife, as she looks much younger than her age and is a beauty. While Gisaburo goes out of town for work, Toyoji slowly makes his move on Seki and while she is hesitant at first, she slowly caves into the man 23 years her junior. As Toyoji cannot bear to have her continue the relationship with Gisaburo, they plan a way to get rid of him - to strangle him while unconscious from alcohol and dump his body into the deep well. To cover up the murder and disappearance of the corp...


A Flickering Truth by James-Masaki Ryan (12th February 2017)

“A Flickering Truth” (2015) In 1996 the country of Afghanistan was taken over by the Taliban government after years of unrest. The war torn democratic country became a country ruled by Islamic extremists, who took no time to destroy all the cultural heritage of Afghanistan. Whether it was historical palaces, modern technology, and arts including film and television, they were destroyed or outlawed entirely. The Afghan Film office was founded in 1968 to archive the film and television productions of Afghanistan. Their office was raided by Taliban officials and was ordered to destroy every work stored in the archive. Of the 120 employees at the office, two of them risked their lives by sneaking into the archive and hiding above the ceilings and other places for possible preservation. With the 100,000 hours worth of material stored, it was impossible to save everything. Certain films and newsreels that were deemed important for cultural history were hidden, but there was always a risk that the Taliban would destroy the entire building. Workers were ordered to bring cans of film and burn them to a crisp with death threats if they didn’t. Thousands and thousands of hours of mat...


Willie Dynamite (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (12th February 2017)

Willie Dynamite (Gilbert Moses, 1974) Though many of the blaxploitation pictures made during the 1970s were directed by predominantly white crews and helmed by white directors (such as Jack Hill, Jack Starrett and Larry Cohen), a handful of these films were made by black filmmakers; Gilbert Moses III, the director of Willie Dynamite (1974), was one such director, as was Melvin Van Peebles (the director of Sweet Sweetback’s Badassss Song!, 1971), D’Urville Martin (Dolemite, 1975) and both Gordon Parks (Shaft, 1971) and his son Gordon Parks Jr (Super Fly, 1972). What distinguished Shaft from many of the blaxploitation films that followed, regardless of the background of their directors, was the worldview brought to the film by Gordon Parks, whose long-standing experience as a social documentary photographer (originally with the Farm Security Administration, and later during the C...


Francesca: Limited Collector's Edition by Anthony Arrigo (12th February 2017)

With a retro, “return to the glory days” ethos being so prevalent these days, and with filmmakers having more tools at their disposal than ever, it only seems fitting that pictures paying homage to celebrated subgenres of horror have been on the rise. Some are done straight while others are done with a more tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek tone – either way movies that are bound to the past also toe a fine line between slavish reproduction and originality. The giallo subgenre enjoyed a boon in the 70's that saw dozens of films released featuring the requisite staples – black-gloved killers, extreme gore, incredible scores, convoluted plots, creepy dolls, and J&B Scotch. Lately, filmmakers have been paying respect to the giallo with films like “Amer” (2009), “The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears” (2013), “The Editor” (2014), and “Francesca” (2015), the latter of which comes from a pair of brothers – Luciano and Nicolás Onetti – operating out of Argentina. There are so many facets of giallo “Francesca” gets right it makes the things that are wrong more glaring. Unlike, say, “The Editor”, which nailed the trappings of giallo but erred ...


Raising Cain (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (11th February 2017)

Raising Cain (Brian De Palma, 1992) Coming after the critical disaster that was director Brian De Palma’s adaptation of The Bonfire of the Vanities (1991) and receiving a mixed reaction at the time of its original release from both fans of the director’s previous films and a broader audience, Brian De Palma’s Raising Cain offered a very direct pastiche of elements of both De Palma’s previous films and the work of other filmmakers. The film seemed almost as if it were intended to ‘bait’ those critics who had decried the perceived lack of originality within De Palma’s previous films. Where De Palma’s previous pictures had often drawn on the iconography and plotting of various iconic (and sometimes less well-known) thrillers in a highly metafictional way, Raising Cain upped the ante to such an extent that it left many viewers alienated. De Palma’s work had often attracted criticisms of the director’s self-conscious and overt r...


In the Realm of the Senses by James-Masaki Ryan (11th February 2017)

“In the Realm of the Senses”「愛のコリーダ」 (1976) On May 19th, 1936, police officers went to an inn where suspect Sada Abe was supposedly staying at under a pseudonym. When the police entered her room, she was not surprised and calmly said that she was Sada Abe and she was the one they were looking for. To provide her own proof, she showed them the severed penis and testicles of her lover Kichizo Ishida, who was killed the day before. The story of her act of sexual dismemberment and murder filled the newspapers of the day to an almost mythical way. The trial a few months later was the talk of all the public, in which she was only given a sentence of six years in prison for murder in the second degree and mutilation of a corpse. With the incident and the sentencing, Sada became a figure for feminists, artists, philosophers, people dismayed with the judicial system, and even avid readers as her confession transcripts became a bestseller. While people were fascinated, shocked, and disgusted about the incident, the bigger story was why it happened. Sada was a 30 year old pro...


The Angry Video Game Nerd: Season 9 by James-Masaki Ryan (8th February 2017)

“Angry Video Game Nerd: Season 9” (2014-2016) The web series “Angry Video Game Nerd” has been a continuous mainstay on YouTube for over 10 years now - a lone white button-up shirt wearing nerd that plays terrible retro games and takes out his frustration with Rolling Rock beer and loud outbursts of obscenities. Conceptually it sounds like many other YouTube channels of useless videos of so called critics commenting haphazardly and without merit, but writer/director/star James Rolfe sets his show apart from others with creative production work, witty scriptwriting, great editing, and rewatchability. While episodes used to come every two weeks, Rolfe started to slow down the pace of AVGN episodes to concentrate on other work - other web series such as “Board James” and “James & Mike Mondays”, and the theatrical feature film “Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie”. The AVGN web series had been released on the DVD format ...


Long Weekend by James-Masaki Ryan (7th February 2017)

“Long Weekend” (1978) Peter (played by John Hargreaves) and Marcia (played by Briony Behets) are a couple going through a rough patch in their marriage. To try to rekindle their relationship they decide to take a trip to the beach for the weekend. Their dog Cricket is also along for the ride - which Peter insists on taking while Marcia is clearly against having the dog come along. Not for the additional trouble but because she has no love for Peter’s dog. Driving along they have their share of arguments - from the choice of music on the stereo to getting directions. Arriving at the beach looks like paradise for them. The beautiful blue sea, the sunny skies, and away from civilization without a soul around them. They start joking around, having a good time together, but things start taking a darker turn from their natural surroundings. They start hearing sounds of crying or bellowing in the distance. Tame animals like possums and birds start biting or flying into their camp area. Ants swarm their picnic area aggressively. While the couple first think that these are coincidenc...


The Spring River Flows East by James-Masaki Ryan (5th February 2017)

“The Spring River Flows East” 《一江春水向东流》 (1947) For a company event at a textile factory in Shanghai, China, company employee Zhongliang (played by Jin Tao) takes the stage to MC the festivities. While there are dances and other stage acts performed, Zhongliang takes a moment to urge the factory workers to think about the people in Manchuria fighting the Japanese. This leads to a bit of trouble for him with the higher ups, as they wanted the event to be a joyous one and not a political one regardless of the situation up north. On a happier side, Zhongliang is in love with Sufen (played by Bai Yang). Love leads to marriage and also a child for them, but the happiness does not last long due to the circumstances of war. With the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Japanese forces moving southward, Chinese citizens are in a state of panic and mass exodus. Zhongling helps the resistance by being a medic and Sufen, their young son Kangsheng, and his mother to move out to the countryside where they meet up wi...


Homeland: The Complete Fifth Season by Eric Cotenas (5th February 2017)

Bipolar former operative Carrie Matthison (William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet's Claire Danes) is back in the fifth season of Homeland – the American television adaptation of Gideon Raff's Israeli series Prisoners of War from Alex Gansa (24) and Howard Gordon (24: India) – having left the CIA and taking a job for The Düring Foundation in Berlin as head of security for steelworks magnate turned philanthropist Otto Düring (The Lives of Others' Sebastian Koch) and and settling down with daughter Franny (


Memories of Underdevelopment by Eric Cotenas (3rd February 2017)

Don Quijote Award and FIPRESCI Prize: Tomás Gutiérrez Alea (win) - Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, 1970 Richard and Hilda Rosenthal Foundation Award: Memories of Underdevelopment (won) and NSFC Award (Best Actor): Sergio Corrieri (5th Place) - National Society of Film Critics Awards (USA), 1974 "All those who loved me and bugged me up until the last minute have left," writes Sergio (I Am Cuba's Sergio Corrieri) after seeing off his parents and estranged wife Laura who are fleeing Havana for the United States following the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. A middle-class would-be intellectual trying to live "in the European style" off the rent of the space that was once the furniture store passed down to him by his father, Sergio has finally decided to write a book if only to see if he actually has something to say. He spends much of his time, however, strolling the stre...


The Hunchback of Notre Dame by James-Masaki Ryan (3rd February 2017)

“The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (1923) On September 2nd 1923 Universal Pictures premiered their epic production of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” - based on the famed 1831 novel of the same name by Victor Hugo. With extravagant set designs and a parade of stars and extras, the film became a large hit for Universal Pictures even with its costly $1 million+ budget. At the time of production in the 1920s, studio executives reigned over control of their studio’s productions. Unusually, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” was more an auteuristic work of an actor - Lon Chaney. By the early 192s, Chaney was one of the most prominent figures in Hollywood, making his name since the early 1910s in both shorts and feature films such as “The Piper's Price” (1917), “The Miracle Man” (1919), and many more. His name was recognizable, but what set Chaney apart was his chameleon-like process of transforming into different characters onscreen with groundbreaking make-up techniques, an...


Culpepper Cattle Co. (The) (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (2nd February 2017)

The Culpepper Cattle Co. (Dick Richards, 1972) Made during the early 1970s, Dick RichardsThe Culpepper Cattle Co. (1972) is a clear example of a revisionist Western; it is a film that openly questions the mythologising of classic film Westerns via its depiction of the hardships of life in the West. Like a number of other revisionist Westerns of the era – for example, Sam Peckinpah’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973) or Frank Perry’s Doc (1971, also recently released on Blu-ray by Signal One Entertainment and reviewed by us here) - The Culpepper Cattle Co. seeks authenticity in its mise-en-scène. The characters’ costumes are dirty, their environments worn and looking ‘lived-in’. The actors aren’t the glamorous stars of previous Hollywood Westerns; their faces look as ‘lived-in’ as their clothes. It’s an open challenge to the saniti...


Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (1st February 2017)

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (Sam Peckinpah, 1974) In his oft-quoted interview with the New York Times in 1971, during the production of Straw Dogs (Sam Peckinpah, 1972), Sam Peckinpah famously asserted, slyly, ‘I’m like a good whore: I go where I’m kicked’ (Peckinpah, quoted in Yergin, 1971: np). The statement encapsulated, with no small degree of irony, Peckinpah’s relationship with the filmmaking process: though he was often the initiator of projects, he very rarely had final cut and almost all of his films were compromised somewhere along the line either by cuts to the budget (for example, Cross of Iron, 1977) and/or interference by money men during the post-production process (pretty much all of his films, and most famously The Wild Bunch, 1969; and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, 1973). Peckinpah’s self-deprecatory comment therefore spoke of the attempts that had been made (or at least, which he felt had been ma...


Gagman by James-Masaki Ryan (1st February 2017)

“Gagman” <개그맨> (1989) Lee Jong-sae (played by Ahn Sung-ki) gets his usual trim at the local barbershop where the barber Moon Do-suk (played by Bae Chang-ho ) cuts the Chaplin-esque mustache and shaves the perfectly set hairline for Jong-sae. Do-suk talks endlessly about movies - Kirk Douglas in “The Vikings”, quoting James Bond, and wishing to be part of the movie business himself one day. Jong-sae is a man in show business. Though not in the movies - as of yet, he is a comedian who performs in nightclubs as a one man act. But he is no Charlie Chaplin. There are empty seats as he is just background to small crowds that are not there particularly for the stage acts. But he does have a dream of one day becoming a figure in the movie business. Not as an actor but as a director - just as Chaplin was. Jong-sae goes to a film set to talk to a movie director in person, budging his way on set and ruin...


To Live and Die in L.A. - Collector's Edition by Anthony Arrigo (27th January 2017)

There exists another apocryphal Hollywood tale that suggests after seeing director William Friedkin’s “To Live and Die in L.A.” (1985) Michael Mann, creator of the then-hot television series “Miami Vice” (1984-1990) sued Friedkin in court, claiming he had ripped off his intellectual property and demanded to be compensated for what was tantamount to plagiarism. Per Friedkin, however, in his autobiography “The Friedkin Connection” he states this is simply not true, he has no idea how the falsehood originated, and that he and Mann have been good friends for over 30 years. There are some parallels that can be drawn between the two concepts but the similarities stop pretty quickly. While “Miami Vice” absolutely has some pulse-pounding episodes, the level of intensity and white-knuckle tension is handily won by Friedkin’s opus, a return to form after he experienced a string of commercial failures. More ferocious than ever before, “To Live and Die in L.A.” is a deeply layered crime picture that is told with such authenticity and attention to even the minutest details that it is impossible for anyone not to be swept up in its twisted plot. ...


Dreamscape: Collector's Edition by Anthony Arrigo (27th January 2017)

There is a bizarre irony in the fact that filmmakers have more tools at their disposal to be creative than ever before, yet the movies that look and feel most inspired come from a time when ingenuity and a scrap-and-build ethos were all creatives had to use. This is an argument I have made before – as have plenty of old-school film aficionados – and it all comes down to tangibility. Until the day comes when our brain is truly incapable of perceiving digital trickery from hand-crafted practical effects, nothing produced by a computer can hold the visual weight of something you know is there, up on screen. Director Joseph Ruben’s “Dreamscape” (1984) takes place in the most abstract of environments: the dream world, a place where anything is possible. Think of your own dreams and how they often play out – a realm where surrealism trumps grounded reality. In “Dreamscape”, agents of the government are gifted with the ability to enter the dreams of people in peril (as well as those who are not), wrestling with nightmarish visions and twisted versions of our world. Each entry into the dreamverse plays like a mini movie, different from the last and packed with minutia. Similar ideas have...


Nighthawks: Collector's Edition by Anthony Arrigo (27th January 2017)

Watching director Bruce Malmuth’s “Nighthawks” (1981) for the first time, I was struck by the similarities between it and William Friedkin’s “The French Connection” (1971). Both are New York-set tales about two beat cops working together to bring down an international criminal, who manages to elude them every step of the way. The style, era, chases, and even the casting felt very much like kin to Friedkin’s masterpiece. And then, after the film was over I checked out the production history (as I do with every film) and was none too surprised to learn this film started life as a proposed third entry in the “French Connection” series. The plan was scrapped when Gene Hackman bowed out, having no interest in doing another sequel as “Popeye” Doyle. The rights shifted over to Universal, the script received rewrites, and it started anew as a vehicle for Sylvester Stallone and Billy Dee Williams. Even with a new script and cast in place, the ...


Workaholics: Season 6 by Eric Cotenas (26th January 2017)

Narcissistic Adam DeMamp (Modern Family's Adam DeVine), pretentious Anders (How to Be Single's Anders Holm), and stoner Blake (Epic's Blake Anderson) are back in the six season of Workaholics, and it seems as though they are a year or so behind some of the topical issues they are lampooning in this set of ten episodes for Comedy Central. In "Wolves of Rancho" (21:21), the trio get transferred to the Rancho Cucamonga branch of TelAmeriCorp hoping to emulate the flashy success of former co-worker Cushing Ward (The Hunger Games' Liam Hemsworth) under the leadership of charismatic JP Richman (Dan in Real Life's


Shinjuku Triad Society AKA Shinjuku kuroshakai: China mafia sensô (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (26th January 2017)

‘The Black Society Trilogy’: Shinjuku Triad Society (1995), Rainy Dog (1997) and Ley Lines (1999) Made prior to Audition (1999, Arrow’s Blu-ray release of this film has been reviewed by us here), the ‘breakout’ film which established its incredibly prolific director Miike Takashi amongst non-Japanese audiences owing to its critical success in other countries, the three films gathered here – grouped under the label ‘the Black Society Trilogy’ (or kuroshakai trilogy) – characterise the focus of Miike’s pre-Audition pictures on the lives of yakuza members. The progression of the films also traces Miike’s approach to cinematic convention: all three pictures are combative in their sensibilities, and with each picture in the series Miike seems to escalate his war against convention, each subsequent film pushing against the paradigms of the genre and of cinema itself. Ley Lines (1999), the final film in the trilogy, ...

Little Men by Eric Cotenas (25th January 2017)

When his aged father dies suddenly, struggling actor Brian Jardine (As Good As It Gets' Greg Kinnear) inherits his Brooklyn family home. Although long estranged from his father, the inheritance could not have come at a better time since Brian's therapist wife Kathy (Zero Dark Thirty's Jennifer Ehle) has been supporting them while Brian promised to pursue more lucrative acting jobs but has ended up with the choice roll of Trigorin in a local community production of Chekhov's "The Seagull". Moving into the old family house makes things cheaper, and introverted son Jake (Theo Taplitz) makes unlikely but fast friends with Tony (Michael Barbieri), the son of Leonor (The 33's Paulina García...


The Secret Life of Pets by Eric Cotenas (25th January 2017)

From Illumination Studios, the company that brought us Despicable Me and those utterly annoying minions, The Secret Life of Pets is as enjoyable a piece of contemporary animation this reviewer has experienced as a grownup since the original Toy Story. Jack Russell Terrier Max (voiced by comedian Louis C.K.) has enjoyed the ideal owner/pet relationship with Katie (voiced by The Office's Ellie Kemper) since he was one of a litter of free puppies. Spending his days in a Manhattan apartment building – after a morning jaunt to a Central Park dog park with a lackadaisical dog walker – Max socializes with the buildings other pets who party like fratboys when their owners leave for work: among them, pining neighbor Pomeranian Gidget (voiced by Joshy's


Cowboy Bebop: The Movie by James-Masaki Ryan (24th January 2017)

“Cowboy Bebop: The Movie”「カウボーイ・ビバップ 天国の扉」 (2001) “Cowboy Bebop” was an animated 30-minute episodic TV series of 26 episodes created by director Shinichiro Watanabe for Sunrise productions. Originally broadcast from TV Tokyo from April 3rd 1998, but was prematurely cancelled after only a few episodes aired on June 26th 1998. Negotiations were made with cable TV network WOWOW to continue to broadcast the remaining episodes, which ran both the first 12 episodes and the remaining 14 to close off the story. While ratings remained low, the fanbase continued to grow by word of mouth, rentals of videos, and sales of the series on Laserdisc and later DVD. An intelligent mix of science fiction, film noir, and westerns, it sprinkled in humor, action, and weirdness that separated itself from any other TV series at the time. It had the clunkered used technology of the future from the world of the
