Gerald Kargl's Angst aka Schizophrenia (1983) on blu-ray from Cult Epics (US)



Angst (1983) - Amazon






Gerald Kargl’s Angst Heading Back to U.S. Cinemas
via blu-ray.com

Cult Epics will present director Gerald Kargl's Angst a.k.a. Schizophrenia (1983) uncut and uncensored for the first time in U.S. theaters, starting June 12, 2015 at Cinefamily in Los Angeles and the Grand Illusion Cinema in Seattle.

Angst is one hell of a gorgeously stylized and shockingly visceral experience: a forgotten classic on the fringes of the slasher cycle. Zbig's innovative "first person" camerawork grabs you by the throat, never letting go.

The Los Angeles opening engagement of Angst includes a rare personal appearance by the film's cinematographer, legendary Oscar-winning Polish animator/experimentalist Zbig Rybczynski. Mr. Rybcynski will be in attendance for a special introduction and Q&A on June 12th.

Scored by Krautrock synth god Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream), Angst stars Erwin Leder (DAS BOOT, SCHINDLER'S LIST) as a maniacal killer based on the real-life serial murderer Werner Kniesek. Director Gaspar Noé (IRREVERSIBLE, ENTER THE VOID, LOVE) calls ANGST "the rarest unknown masterpiece of cinema" and cites the film as a major influence, "one that I have watched more than 40 times."

Following the Los Angeles and Seattle screenings, Angst will be showing at independent theaters and festivals in cities across North America through fall 2015 (additional theaters TBA).

John Cassavetes' A Child Is Waiting (1963) on blu-ray from Kino



Produced by Stanley Kramer, A Child is Waiting is set in an institution for the mentally handicapped, with many actual residents playing supporting and bit roles. Doctor Burt Lancaster and instructor Judy Garland often find themselves at odds over teaching methods, with Garland preferring an intense one-on-one approach with her students. Bruce Ritchey, a non-developmentally challenged youth, plays the retarded son of Gena Rowlands and Steven Hill, whose intellectual and social progress becomes the focal point of the film. The most uplifting sequence in A Child is Waiting takes place during a play staged by the genuinely handicapped children for their parents; while director John Cassavetes gilds the lily with close-ups of the teary-eyed audience, the kids themselves are earnest, engaging, and totally devoid of self-pity. According to Stanley Kramer, Judy Garland left her best work in this film on the cutting room floor; whenever completing a scene in which she'd exercised professional restraint, she'd insist upon a retake, then resort to the sobbing and breast-beating that her fans had come to expect.
