    Weekend (Godard)

    This finally arrived the other day and I watched it last night. It's the first time I've seen it in it's proper framing since college days. Anyone interested in the nature and possibilities of film including it's role as an entertainment needs to see this. The Mike Figgis interview extra is...

    Pennies From Heaven

    I'm a little surprised to see so few reviews of the Pennies From Heaven dvd set with barely a mention here. It's up there with I, Claudius and Berlin Alexanderplatz as a mini-series that pushes the limits of the medium far beyond what you'd normally expect from it. Undeservedly overshadowed by...

    Fantoma website back up

    Finally, the revised Fantoma website is up. I'm still searching through it, but it looks as if Fassbinder's Herr K. and the Kenneth Anger set are no longer listed (very disappointing). The only new release I've noticed so far is a documentary on Samuel Fuller with Jim Jarmusch about a Fuller...

    Inkwell Images' Out of the Inkwell vol 2

    Inkwell Images has released a second disc of Fleischer Koko the Clown animations. I hesitate in posting this because Inkwell is a small company doing specialized work that some of us are especially appreciative of... but, they made an unfortunate decision with this release. For economic...

    Lucertola con la pela di donna (Lizard with a Woman's Skin)

    It's a Franco vampire film (with a great Morricone score) that was supposed to be released on R1 dvd last month but was cancelled. Does anyone know what's happened to this?

    Fassbinder BRD Trilogy (Criterion)

    Comments? Complaints? Reviews? I know there are at least two or three other fans out there and this is a fairly major release of his work on dvd. I still have half the Lola commentary and the supplement dvd to go through, but I'm pleased with it. Lola in particular is a candy colored visual...

    Fear of Fear - disc defect

    Has anybody else noticed a 'stall and sputter' defect 17 minutes into Wellspring's Fear of Fear DVD? I'm wondering whether to return this to the retailer or contact the manufacturer.

    Hooray for Bollywood on TCM!

    Wow! I was flipping channels last night and when a Bollywood film showed up on TCM I did a double take. Bombay was quite good but the real treat came afterwards with 1977's Amar Akbar Anthony. I've seen only a few handsful of Bollywood films and especially like the style done in the 60's and...

    What a great disc. It looks wonderful and even sounds better than I expected with the bass nicely enhanced during the songs. And the film... so many ideas in this (with more than one approachable angle to view it from). Imperfect (in good and bad ways I suppose), but seems oddly improved with...
