The Battle Of Algiers: The Criterion Collection (1966)

Synopsis: One of the most influential political films in history, The Battle of Algiers, by Gillo Pontecorvo, vividly re-creates a key year in the tumultuous Algerian struggle for independence from the occupying French in the 1950s. As violence escalates on both sides, children shoot soldiers at point-blank range, women plant bombs in cafe’s, and French soldiers resort to torture to break the will of the insurgents. Shot on the streets of Algiers in documentary style, the film is a case study in modern warfare, with its terrorist attacks and the brutal techniques used to combat them. Pontecorvo’s tour de force has astonishing relevance today. (criterion.com)

Special Features:

High-definition digital transfer, supervised by director of photography Marcello Gatti (with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition). Gillo Pontecorvo: The Dictatorship of Truth,

Disclaimer: This article may contain sarcasm; irony and “LOLs” proceed with caution.

Nonetheless we are bringing it all to you in full-color and in 3-D. (Ed. Note: Due to the economy, 3-D has been dropped and will be replaced by Smell-o-vision — check for your scratch and sniff cards in about 4-6 weeks.) Best Sound went to rage-zombie veterans Ian Tapp and Richard Pryke, leaving Mark Weingarten who worked on Rejuvenatrix in the dust. The Sound Editing section contains one too many references to Ron Silver, and at least two references to a Roger Corman film.

The visual effects category pulled on our heartstrings this year due to the loss of Stan Winston, who was noted en memoriam along with other heroes, Vampira, Leonard Rosenman and Charles H. Schneer

trailer break: ‘My Bloody Valentine 3-D’

Wow! Lionsgate is promising a movie that actually shoots flames at the audience? Awesome... and daring. Imagine what the lawsuits are going to be like! In the town of Harmony, don’t expect to be able to run down the frozen food aisle and escape unhacked up. In the town of Harmony, don’t expect to be able to hide under the bed and escape from the clutches of the crazed slasher guy. In the town of Harmony, they should know better than to paint a target on themselves by giving the town a name that simply begs for the most appalling tragedy to occur there. From director Patrick Lussier, creator of such classics as White Noise 2: The Light, Dracula 2000, and The Prophecy 3: The Ascent. Something tells me the scariest thing about this is going to be the idea that some promotional copywriter actually believed that “Nothing
