oh man marco ferreri is awesome!

he's basically godard meets jodorowsky through a fassbinderish filter.

dillinger is dead is what hes most known for, and its amazing, so i'd watch that first. its very comprehensive of his style and maybe his most accessible.

then watch 'don't touch the white woman' with mastroianni, if you LIKE it, then go to 'bye bye monkey' which is my personal favorite, with ol depardieu.

if you DONT LIKE 'dont touch the white woman' then try 'la grande bouffe' which i dont like very much, but other people seem to love it.

seed of man and bye bye monkey are definitely my favorites of his.

Available now from Grindhouse Releasing

Duke Mitchell’s Massacre Mafia Style (1978)



Massacre Mafia Style (1978) - Amazon

Italian-American actor and nightclub singer Duke Mitchell wrote, produced, directed and starred in this homemade answer to THE GODFATHER, self-financed with earnings from his career as the self-proclaimed “Mr. Palm Springs.” Previously known for his Martin and Lewis act with Sammy Petrillo as seen in BELA LUGOSI MEETS A BROOKLYN GORILLA, Duke plays the ruthless son of a Mafia kingpin who blasts his way through Hollywood on a bloody crime spree. Promising “more guts, more action, more dynamite” than the Mario Puzo gangster classic, MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE delivers an onslaught of low-budget mayhem unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

















Duke Mitchell’s Gone with the Pope (2010) <— year explanation



Gone with the Pope (2010) - Amazon

Lost for over 30 years, GONE WITH THE POPE stars famed nightclub performer Duke Mitchell as Paul, a paroled gangster with an unholy scheme: to kidnap the Pope and charge “a dollar from every Catholic in the world” as the ransom.

Shot in 1975, GONE WITH THE POPE was unfinished at the time of Duke Mitchell’s death in 1981. Sage Stallone and Bob Murawski of Grindhouse Releasing rediscovered GONE WITH THE POPE in 1995 and vowed to save it from obscurity. Academy Award-winning film editor Murawski (THE HURT LOCKER, ARMY OF DARKNESS) spent 15 years completing GONE WITH THE POPE from the surviving film elements.

I only have a few, for obvious reasons - Sidney Lumet's Equus (1977) takes the cake for me






with John Guillermin's Rapture (1965) and Blake Edwards' Experiment in Terror (1962) right behind it (Rapture DVD Beaver review, full movie on youtube)






Some caps from Experiment in Terror:













...TT releases are hard to recommend unless a title has no alternative availability. Like you, I'm a fan of Wild at Heart and The Driver, but they're both available in cheaper editions internationally, now. Same with The Big Heat. Remains of the Day is a great movie but it's also the case. Save RotD I bought the TT editions of these movies and now I feel like an asshole.

Cameron Crowe’s Singles finally coming to Blu-ray

MARCH 4, 2015 BY SCOTT J. DAVIS

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the long-awaited Blu-ray release of Singles, the 1992 sophomore effort from director Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, Say Anything).

In Seattle during the era of grunge music, the lives and relationships of a group of young people, all living in the same apartment building, go through a period of flux. Among them are waitress and aspiring architect Janet (Fonda), who finds herself obsessed with bad boy musician Cliff (Dillon); Linda (Sedgwick), an emotionally fragile environmentalist on the look-out for love; and Steve (Scott), a quintessential nice guy who studies traffic patterns.

Singles stars Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, Matt Dillon, Bill Pullman, Tom Skerritt, Jeremy Piven, Eric Stoltz, Peter Horton and Sheila Kelly.

The Blu-ray release of Singles is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Extras include:
–25 Deleted/Extended/Alternate Scenes:
–The 16-minute “The Ballad of Janet and Dr. Jeff” compiling the entire relationship between Bridget Fonda and Bill Pullman’s characters
–Extended Tracking Shot Opening
–Mime Club Fight
–What Would The King Do?
–No Games
–Eddie Haskell Redux
—Three Complete Live Performances:
Soundgarden – “Birth Ritual”
Alice in Chains – “Would?” and “It Ain’t Like That Anymore”
–Two “Complete Take” Extras with Bill Pullman and Tad
–Gag Reel
–Theatrical Trailer

Singles is released on April 7th in the US. Crowe’s latest film Aloha, starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin and Bill Murray, is released on May 29th in the US, and in September in the UK.
