2 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s the start of a new month, and as ever in film and Blu-ray circles, nothing gets the fans salivating more than the upcoming release slate from the awesome folks over at Arrow Films. Its line-up of releases for August has been unveiled (both UK and Us), and you can view all the information below, including the stand-out title, David Cronenberg’s Videodrome, which is getting a very special, limited edition release in a collector’s package.

Videodrome: Limited Edition

Combining the bio-horror elements of his earlier films whilst anticipating the technological themes of his later work, Videodrome exemplifies Cronenberg’s extraordinary talent for making both visceral and cerebral cinema. Max Renn (James Woods) is looking for fresh new content for his TV channel when he happens across some illegal S&M-style broadcasts called ‘Videodrome’. Embroiling his girlfriend Nicki (Debbie Harry) in his search for the source, his »

Remembering Actress Simon Part 2 - Deadly Sex Kitten Romanced Real-Life James Bond 'Inspiration'

Simone Simon in 'La Bête Humaine' 1938: Jean Renoir's film noir (photo: Jean Gabin and Simone Simon in 'La Bête Humaine') (See previous post: "'Cat People' 1942 Actress Simone Simon Remembered.") In the late 1930s, with her Hollywood career stalled while facing competition at 20th Century-Fox from another French import, Annabella (later Tyrone Power's wife), Simone Simon returned to France. Once there, she reestablished herself as an actress to be reckoned with in Jean Renoir's La Bête Humaine. An updated version of Émile Zola's 1890 novel, La Bête Humaine is enveloped in a dark, brooding atmosphere not uncommon in pre-World War II French films. Known for their "poetic realism," examples from that era include Renoir's own The Lower Depths (1936), Julien Duvivier's La Belle Équipe (1936) and Pépé le Moko (1937), and particularly Marcel Carné's Port of Shadows (1938) and Daybreak (1939).[11] This thematic and »

Five Unmissable Buñuel Classics Tonight on TCM

26 January 2015 5:24 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Luis Buñuel movies on TCM tonight (photo: Catherine Deneuve in 'Belle de Jour') The city of Paris and iconoclastic writer-director Luis Buñuel are Turner Classic Movies' themes today and later this evening. TCM's focus on Luis Buñuel is particularly welcome, as he remains one of the most daring and most challenging filmmakers since the invention of film. Luis Buñuel is so remarkable, in fact, that you won't find any Hollywood hipster paying homage to him in his/her movies. Nor will you hear his name mentioned at the Academy Awards – no matter the Academy in question. And rest assured that most film critics working today have never even heard of him, let alone seen any of his movies. So, nowadays Luis Buñuel is un-hip, un-cool, and unfashionable. He's also unquestionably brilliant. These days everyone is worried about freedom of expression. The clash of civilizations. The West vs. The Other. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #72. Otar Iosseliani’s Chant d’hiver

6 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Winter Song

Director: Otar Iosseliani // Writer: Otar Iosseliani

With his 1984 classic title, Favorites of the Moon finally receiving a re-mastered blu-ray release for Us consumption earlier this year, we’re greatly anticipating Georgian director Otar Iosseliani’s latest film, his first since 2010’s Chantrapas. Titled Chant d’hiver (Winter Song), Iosseliani has been purposefully vague on the exact nature of the plot, stating only that the film is concerned with ‘the nonsense of revolutions” as well as “the dramatic chaos that every revolution brings.” Employing mostly a non-professional cast, French veterans Michel Piccoli and Pierre Etaix are apparently part of the known names involved.

Cast: Michel Piccoli, Pierre Etaix

Productions Co.: Studio 99, Pastorale Films.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available.

Release Date: As far as festivals go, Berlin has been kinder to Otar Iosseliani (he won the Silver Bear for Monday Morning in 2002). His last film, 2010’s Chantrapas was selected »
