Janus is now the official North American partner for the NFA. From the titles they mention (in addition to the already in-print Marketa Lazarová) we could expect The Cremator, All My Good Countrymen, Three Wishes for Cinderella, and Ikarie XB1, among others.

right, right

The Cremator (1969)

Quote
Set in World War II, a demented cremator believes cremation relieves earthly suffering and sets out to save the world.



All My Good Countrymen(1969)



Quote
Various scenes in the life of a tight-knit community in Czechoslovakia exploring the human spirit in the backdrop of the political changes that they experience.

no trailer but two wildly different scenes





Three Wishes for Cinderella (1973)

Quote
Life changes dramatically for a Czech housemaid when the house driver gives her three magical hazel nuts.

Quote
One of the most beloved films in all Eastern European cinema, Václav Vorlíček's reworking of the classic Cinderella tale is both delightful and unconventional. Deviating from the original story, yet retaining an air of real magic and beauty, Three Wishes for Cinderella takes the familiar fairy tale and invests it with a feisty and rebellious Cinderella who - far from being some passive beauty - rides a horse, knows how to hunt and actively pursues her handsome Prince.

Shot on location in around the famous Švihov castle and the surrounding forests of Bohemia, the film grounds the familiar fairy tale in a realistic setting with down-to-earth characters, and a remarkable central performance by the young Libuše Šafránková.

Three Wishes for Cinderella became a treasured Christmas holiday classic in various European countries, and one which continues to charm and attract new audiences.

For the discerning science fiction fan, this is the best of the Eastern-bloc Cold War Sci-fi epics, a genuinely brilliant and warmly human 'Voyage to the End of the Universe' restored in 4k resolution. It's from before 2001: A Space Odyssey and has an equally wondrous but totally different vision of the future. Hopefully this will soon be readily available here; buying it required some clever footwork by Foreign Exchange of Culver City. Starring my favorite Czech personalities Radovan Lukavský, Zdenek Stepánek, Frantisek Smolík, Irena Kacírková and Dana Medrická. Please Marek, forgive my incompetent diacritical marks! On Blu-ray from NFA (Czech).

That's what I'm talking about. Some restored footage:




Again, I'm reminded of the thing Matt said in the Ghost Story thread, which is beginning to feel like a manifesto for filmmaking in the 21st century:

One thing I'll say is that I've recently been thinking about how we've reached the limit of how deep a literal/realistic approach to storytelling in film can go. At least for me as a viewer. There've been a bunch of recent movies that have done a great job of being observant and understated and demonstrating all these things that are true about how people behave and how things happen and so on, but... I find that I can't give that much of a shit about it anymore. Meanwhile, movies that engage with symbolism and theme are striking me as able to probe much deeper into its ideas, because of the distillation of its ideas into images and moments. There is so much more feeling in it. I would never say "cinema is dead" but I agree with Scorsese that "images don't mean anything anymore" in the great majority of contemporary cinema, especially when compared to older cinema. Most filmmakers aren't even trying to create new and striking and meaningful images.

My favorite movies of the past few years are incredibly playful with the filmmaking, even when the themes are serious. There is a joy in it. An engagement with the form, and the possibilities. Even though the word "playful" sounds unserious, it's really the only way to be serious.

THE SEVENTH SEAL is playful. PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is playful. ERASERHEAD is playful. CITIZEN KANE is playful. POINT BLANK is playful. THE LOVE WITCH is playful. THE RED SHOES is playful. A GHOST STORY is playful.


So many of these older Russian and Czech movies are great examples of this storytelling style. Most of them are fairly difficult to find in official home video releases, at least English-friendly ones.


The Cremator (1969)



Quote
Set in World War II, a demented cremator believes cremation relieves earthly suffering and sets out to save the world.


Hell yeah. My boy Juraj. He also made a super cool adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.

Quote from: Senses of Cinema
The 1978 adaptation by the Czechoslovak film-maker Juraj Herz is both a vital addition to – and a radical departure from – the tradition of fairy tales on film. Its title, Panna a netvor, has been translated with equal validity as The Beauty and the Beast or The Virgin and the Monster. As this alternate title implies, the dimension of horror (not to mention outright revulsion) is far stronger in this version than in any of its more mainstream rivals. The Graeco-Roman myth of Cupid and Psyche confronts its heroine with the very real fear that “the husband who comes secretly gliding into your bed at night is an enormous snake, with widely gaping jaws, a body that could coil around you a dozen times and a neck swollen with deadly poison.”1 Not one of the better-known film versions conveys anything like this degree of terror.

David Cronenberg’s eXistenZ (1999) on limited edition blu-ray from Ledick Filmhandel GmbH (Germany). Unfortunately it’s being sourced from the same lackluster transfer as every other eXistenZ blu-ray release thus far, with minor brightness adjustments. However, this German release will include all of the extra features that were absent from the Region A barebones Echo Bridge disc, including three audio commentaries.



Video game designer Allegra Geller (Jennifer Jason Leigh) has created a virtual reality game called eXistenZ. After a crazed fan attempts to kill her, Allegra goes on the run with Ted (Jude Law), a young businessman who falls into the role of bodyguard. In an attempt to save her game, Allegra implants into Ted's body the video game pod that carries a damaged copy of eXistenZ. Allegra and Ted engage in a series of experiences that blur the lines between fantasy and reality.

Walter Hill’s The Long Riders (1979) on blu-ray from Kino, from a new 4K restoration

The notorious James-Younger gang is the most famous group of outlaws in the country, robbing banks, trains and stagecoaches with a sense of daring that makes them folk heroes throughout the land. But when the mighty Pinkerton detective agency swears to track them down, these criminals must face an awesome enemy that will stop at nothing to see them behind bars. ..or dead! Only through the strength of their loyalty and blood ties can the outlaws hope to survive the brutal pursuits, unexpected betrayals and blistering showdowns that mark the end of their dangerous ride.

Kinji Fukasaku’s The Green Slime (1968) on blu-ray from Warner Archive



After a perilous mission to a huge asteroid, a crew returns to its space station, unaware a bit of ooze from the asteroid clings to a crewman's uniform. The green goop grows - into murderous, tentacled monsters. And as station members fight to live, gunk from the monsters' wounds turns into more monsters!






2017 TBD

John Landis’ Innocent Blood (1992) on blu-ray from Warner Archive



Anne Parillaud stars as sexy vampire Marie who accidentally neglects to finish off the mob boss (Robert Loggia), her latest snack. When he awakens to find he's a member of a new underworld family, he wastes no time in turning his mob goons into vampires. Also starring Anthony LaPaglia, Don Rickles, and Chazz Palminteri.






2017 TBD

The Hidden (1987) on blu-ray from Warner Archive



A series of bizarre, inexplicable robberies and murders have L.A. police detective Tom Beck (Nouri) totally baffled. And it doesn't help when mysterious FBI agent Lloyd Gallagher (MacLachlan) tells him that a demonic extraterrestrial creature is invading the bodies of innocent victims - and transforming them into inhuman killers with an unearthly fondness for heavy-metal music, red Ferraris and unspeakable violence. The Hidden a spine-chilling, high-velocity sci-fi thriller






October 2017 TBD

Jean-Luc Godard’s La Chinoise (1967) and Le Gai Savior (1969) on blu-ray from Kino. Also coming from Arrow Academy in the UK later in the year.



1967. Disillusioned by their suburban lifestyles, a group of middle-class students, led by Guillaume (Jean-Pierre Léaud) and Veronique (Anne Wiazemsky), form a small Maoist cell and plan to change the world by any means necessary. After studying the growth of communism in China, the students decide they must use terrorism and violence to ignite their own revolution. Director Jean-Luc Godard, whose advocacy of Maoism bordered on intoxication, infuriated many traditionalist critics with this swiftly paced satire.




While alone in an abandoned television studio, two militants, Emile Rousseau (Jean-Pierre Leaud) and Patricia Lumumba (Juliet Berto), have a discourse on language. Referring to spoken word as "the enemy"--the weapon used by the establishment to confuse liberation movements--the two deconstruct the meanings of sounds and images in an attempt to "return to zero" and truly experience the joy of learning.

wilder, to whom i like to tell my movie collecting stories, since we're the same person like that,

i did indeed end up buying Fellini's Roma, but this morning i spent my remaining criterion money on this Kino Lorber Studio Classics sale

Quote
To celebrate the launch of the new Kino Lorber Studio Classics website we're having our biggest sale ever! 401 titles! DVDs as low as $5.98! Blu-rays from $7.98!

Free USA Shipping - Orders of $50 or more
Free Canada Shipping - Orders of $100 or more

Sale starts today and ends Sunday, August 6th!

John Ford's The Hurricane is going out of print on July 31st - DVD $7.98 | BD $9.98 (while quantities last)

dude The Hurricane was (is?) on netflix forever but i never got around to watching it, but they said that thing about the blu-ray going oop and i ended up buying it. okay they duped me. because sometimes i'm a sucker. to get my free shipping i needed over $50, so i also got Freeway, which you had mentioned as a good idea. i bought Welcome to L.A. because i read a thing that compared it to Nashville, you know. really i shouldn't read things about things. then i bought Hester Street because it was listed in that National Archives Registry section. so i needed one over $10, The Wanderers was out of stock and i decided i know well the story of rock and roll, most genre movies are feelings i know well, and i ended up buying this one because of things like this poster



what my reactions to these movies will be i'm not sure

I haven't seen most of these except for part of Welcome to L.A., which I think I liked. Anything that captures the culture and landscape of Los Angeles I'm pretty partial to, though, so take that with a grain of salt.

I definitely appreciate Freeway for the vibe over the story. Keep expectations tempered. Delia, who made the adult art films Cafe Flesh (1982) and Nightdreams (1981), comes from the same spiritual school as Abel Ferrara (who started with the x-rated movie Nine Lives of a Wet Pussy (1976) before going on to make Driller Killer (1979)), and actually worked on Ferrera’s early short film Could This Be Love (1973) as a DP. There’s something oddly compelling about porno directors becoming real directors and being able to see through their eyes with the knowledge of all that smut swimming in the background. A substitute for the school of hard knocks or whatever. I'll be curious what you think.

Quote from: Letterboxd user Filipe Furtado
A group of people coming together to stop a psychotic priest in a killing spree. Perfect rendered sleazy texture, with some genuine feel for urban paranoia and feels genuine troubling.

Quote from: Letterboxd user matt lynch
My memory of this from late-night cable was the ultimate city nightmare, a paranoid neon fantasy laced with Catholic guilt, drowning in urban sleaze and misogyny. But turns out I was mixing it up with FEAR CITY, to which this can't really compare despite the tantalizing presence of not only James Russo but also Billy Drago as a scripture-quoting spree killer. Gets agreeably weird towards the end

Quote from: Letterboxd user Kuru
prob the weirdest 80s thriller movie

spoiler: i'll think it's a good idea you told me about the movie and thanks as always xx.

the list of movies i don't like is far, far shorter than the list of movies i like. i like movies. in the past four years i've only regretted buying The Arrival. my regrets lean toward what i don't buy, this time being Ken Russell's Billion Dollar Brain, Paul Verhoeven's Flesh + Blood, Allan Dwan's Zaza, John Ford's 3 Bad Men, Henry Hathaway's 23 Paces to Baker Street , and finally J.Lee Thomson's White Buffalo (when will i finally see this??), i already mentioned The Wanderers, and what already drives me crazy is Deluge.

Quote
Deluge is a 1933 American Pre-Code apocalyptic, science fiction film released by RKO Radio Pictures, and directed by Felix E. Feist. The film depicts a group of worldwide natural disasters which lead to the destruction of the earth.

Deluge was out of stock and that broke my heart since i'm impatient. here is NYC being destroyed in Deluge--

Just learned about this German DVD & Blu-ray label Bildstörung. The owners, Alexander Beneke and Carsten Baiersdörfer, have really interesting taste. The label specializes in foreign arthouse and exploitation films, and what could generally be described as ‘wide angle oddities’.

To give you an idea, some of the titles in their catalog already available in the US from other labels include:

-Aleksei German’s Hard to Be A God (2013)
-Lodge Kerrigan’s Clean, Shaven (1993)
-Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession (1981)
-Stuart Cooper’s Overlord (1975)
-Walerian Borowczyk’s La Bete (1975)
-Jaromil Jireš' Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970)
-František Vláčil’s Marketa Lazarová (1967)

Below are some of their titles that are unreleased or OOP in the US.


The restoration work they did on Robert Sigl’s Laurin (1989) is unbelievable:



Strange goings on in an idyllic harbour town at the turn of the last century. Children disappear without trace. Death in the form of man dressed in black seems to plague the area. The nine-year-old girl Laurin is haunted by creepy dreams and hallucinations of a man heaving a sack and children drumming in fear against closed windows. Step by step Laurin tries to unravel this terrifying mosaic and eventually puts her own life at risk.

Laurin (1989) - Restoration comparison on Vimeo



Zbynek Brynych’s The Bitches aka Die Weibchan (1970) - Blu-ray



Outrageous sleaze joins an exclusive health spa only to discover it's run by feminist cannibals.





Nikos Nikolaidis’ Singapore Sling (1990) - Blu-ray with English subtitles



A man on a mission to find his missing lover meets a mother and daughter with their own grisly agenda.

NSFW




Jean-Claude Brisseau’s Sound and Fury (1988) - DVD



This drama depicts the misery of neglected children in big cities. 13 years old Bruno is of a good family, but since the death of his grandmother he spends most of his time alone, in a phantasy world, while his mother is away at work. But then he befriends the violent Jean-Roger, who’s from a severely disturbed family, where nobody cares what he’s doing. In school Jean-Roger drives their teacher into despair just for fun. To separate the two boys, she starts to stimulate Bruno’s interests by giving him extra lessons. When Jean-Roger fears loosing his one and only friend, he becomes even more aggressive.

Quote from: IMDB user Guillaume Désilets
This movie is like CLOCKWORK ORANGE without the science fiction. Brisseau could direct scenes as unforgettable as the Russian roulette scenes in DEER HUNTER ; He's got the same dark, ultra-realistic way of filming things that are beautiful or horrible.







Iván Zulueta’s Arrebato aka Rapture (1979) - DVD



A low budget horror filmmaker gets in touch with an eccentric who is trying to film his consciousness during drug abuse.





Rolf de Heer’s Bad Boy Bubby (1993) - DVD



Bad Boy Bubby is just that: a bad boy. So bad, in fact, that his mother has kept him locked in their house for his entire thirty years, convincing him that the air outside is poisonous. After a visit from his estranged father, circumstances force Bubby into the waiting world, a place which is just as unusual to him as he is to the world.

NSFW




Henri Xhonneux’s Marquis (1989) - DVD



In pre-French Revolution Bastille, the Marquis is held being unjustly accused of working to overthrow the king. While his talking penis, Colin, longs for action, Marquis himself only desires to write his deviant stories in peace.

Rob Reiner's Misery (1990) on blu-ray from Shout Factory, from a new 4K transfer



Novelist Paul Sheldon (Cann) doesn't remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. Nor does he remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. All he remembers is waking up in the home of Annie Wilkes (Bates) - a maniacal fan who is bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner...for the rest of his 'cock-a-doodie' life!

Technicolor Dreams and Yuletide Flickers i'm still saving for the future, owing to my tremendous excitement, but like Willie Whopper i went right into Private Snafu.



this has felt immensely rewarding for all sorts of reasons.

Quote
Private Snafu cartoons were a military secret—for the armed forces only.

Private Snafu was for teaching lessons to illiterate enlistees of WW2. Snafu means Situation Normal: All Fucked Up.

Quote
The character was created by director Frank Capra, chairman of the U.S. Army Air Force First Motion Picture Unit, and most were written by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel, Philip D. Eastman, and Munro Leaf.

Capra, and then related not just to Dr. Seuss but also—



and



Quote
The cartoons thus represented a multi-talent collaboration by some of America's best in their respective fields; a common occurrence in the war effort.

plus the previously mentioned Chuck Jones and Mel Blanc, and also Bob Clampett and Frank Tashlin were involved. it's a lot of fun to discover, after purchasing, that Frank Tashlin was involved.

to provide an illustration of this show, here’s the fifth in the series. 1943-09-20, Dr. Seuss and Phil Eastman uncredited as its writers. Chuck Jones its director. i like this one because its theme is that each person has their own hardships.



everyone with a problem is one of many. classic. here's a cartoon designed as a reminder.

from the US National Archives, with the War Department stamp, this next one is Chuck Jones directed, Dr. Seuss written.

this example illustrates some of the broader realities achievable through cartoon logic. the lead character is a mosquito with tremendous personality. the overall lesson is simple: don't get stung by a mosquito. isn't that a boring thing to remember? and yet what an exciting episode to remember:



clearly building up to Looney Tunes

Joe Sarno’s All the Sins of Sodom (1968) and Vibrations (1968) on blu-ray from Film Movement Classics and Something Weird Video, restored from the original film elements



Quote
All the Sins of Sodom / Vibrations, directed by 'the Ingmar Bergman of 42nd St.,' Joseph W. Sarno, is the second entry in the definitive series celebrating one of the most gifted pioneers of the sexploitation genre. These two seminal films are now being released for the first time on Blu ray.

Encouraged by his agent, struggling NYC photographer Henning begins a daring portfolio of his model, Leslie. But all too soon, jealousies erupt when another model vies for his camera and bed. A strikingly filmed, penetrating study of ambition, romance and lust set in the world of 1960s fashion photography, All the Sins of Sodom is sexploitation auteur Sarno at the top of his game.

Aspiring poet Barbara moves to Manhattan to jump-start her career and sex life, only to spend her evenings listening to the sounds of her neighbor s vibrator. When her extroverted sister Julie comes to town, Barbara is forced to confront her repressed sexual desires. An early classic by sexploitation director Sarno, Vibrations is classy and sophisticated, beautifully shot, a juicy script, filled with wonderful performances and sexy as hell.
