Viennale 2012. American Genres

6 November 2012 7:33 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

I got to experience an unexpected spectrum of American genre cinema here at the Viennale by yet again ignoring the new in favor of the old. Watching in a continuum Fritz Lang's Man Hunt (1941), in the Film Museum's retrospective, John Ford's Donovan's Reef (1963), programmed in the Viennale “for Jean-Marie Straub,” John Carpenter's The Thing (1982), shown in the retrospective sidebar “They Wanted to See Something Different” curated by Jörg Buttgereit, and Tony Scott's Unstoppable (2010) gave me an ellipticalt glimpse of the movement and address of a certain strain of popular American cinema from the middle of the 20th century to the present.

It would be foolish to take Man Hunt as a sort of pure example of Hollywood's industrial genre making of its time, unself-conscious; after all, Ford's own Stagecoach came two years earlier, electrically alive with awareness of the conventions of nearly forty years of the Western in cinema. »

Viennale 2012. The Unseen Guerilla

4 November 2012 2:28 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

For reasons not clear to me, Fritz Lang's an American Guerilla in the Philippines is almost totally unknown, at least in America, and most existent awareness is tainted by it having the worst reputation of the director's already generally undervalued (but superior) American period. I got a rare chance to see the film on 35mm at the Viennale and was unexpectedly moved by its vivid adventure. I feel like I've read for years that Lang loved adventure stories, and while he made many that were artificially constructed, I think one can sense in their ambition and grandeur a desire, in his focus on science and exoticism, to make a “real” one. (Perhaps much like how Alain Resnais has always giddily wanted to make a comic book movie.) What was so moving for me was the realization that this 1950 film seems to be the first and only time Fritz Lang »

What to Buy This Week: DVD and Blu-ray releases for September 24th

24 September 2012 2:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

It’s Monday, so we all know what that means! Yes, it’s time for another rundown of DVDs and Blu-ray’s hitting stores online and offline this week. It’s a jam-packed week, with plenty of movies waiting to take you money, so let us breakdown the new releases and highlight what you should – and shouldn’t – be buying from today, September 24th 2012.

Pick(S) Of The Week

The Raid (DVD/Blu-ray)

Deep in the heart of one of Jakarta’s most deprived slums stands an impenetrable high-rise apartment block. To most it is 30 floors of Hell to be avoided at all costs but for many of the city’s most dangerous killers and gangsters, including the area’s most notorious crime lord, it is a fortress-like safe house protecting them from the law. Even for the bravest and most experienced police officers it is considered a no-go area. »

Blu-ray Release: Scarlet Street

7 February 2012 7:46 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 28, 2012

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Kino

The classic 1945 film noir Scarlet Street remains one of legendary director Fritz Lang’s (Metropolis) finest American films.

Joan Bennett gets under Edward G. Robinson's skin in Scarlet Street.

When middle-aged milquetoast Chris Cross (Edward G. Robinson, The Stranger) comes to the aid of damsel-in-distress-ish, street-walking bad girl Kitty (Joan Bennett, Man Hunt) one rainy New York night, he plunges into a whirlpool of lust, larceny and revenge–the kind that one finds in any great film noir. Chris’s obsession with the irresistibly vulgar Kitty grows as her nasty pimp boyfriend (Dan Duryea, The Woman in the Window) gets involved, ultimately corrupting and humiliating Chris and turning him into the kind of man he never wanted to be. Will justice triumph? Well, yes…and no.

Available on disc in various qualities from a handful of suppliers over the years, Kino »
