DVD Review NEIL YOUNG JOURNEYS (BLU-RAY)
Director Jonathan Demme took a great Talking Heads concert and made it better. Now, he chronicles a unique journey home for Neil Young, and likely, takes this to another level as well.
Years in the making, this amazing Charley Chase collection features more than five hours of comic masterpieces from the height of Chase's career. The Uneasy Three (from a 35mm print at the Museum of Modern Art) and Charley My Boy (from a 16mm print from the John Hampton Collection, courtesy of the Stanford Theater Foundation) are exclusive to this release.
Shot during the last two nights of Neil Young's 2011 Le Noise world tour, long-time fan and collaborator Jonathan Demme captures the multiple GRAMMY winner, and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee with a stunning intimacy both on stage and off. The documentary follows Young, traveling from his hometown of Omemee, Ontario to Toronto's iconic music venue, Massey Hall, in a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria, while sharing stories about his life and childhood.
Things get very complicated very quickly when Joe (Veronica Kedar), an angsty drug dealer, meets Belle (Sivan Levy), a buoyant suicidal psychopath, in this dark comedy. After an outlandish accident in Tel Aviv leaves the pair with a body to dispose of, they embark on a madcap journey to lose the cops - and end up finding love in Sderot (the target of ongoing rocket attacks).
Directed by Alex Stapleton, Corman's World interview roster boasts such modern Hollywood icons and cinematic luminaries as Oscar(R) winners Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Jonathan Demme, and Ron Howard; Eli Roth, David Carradine, Peter Fonda, William Shatner, Pam Grier, John Sayles, Brett Ratner, Bruce Dern, Paul W.S. Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich, and many more actors and filmmakers.
When the film opened it 1956, it exploded on the screen, burning away years of Hollywood artifice, jump-starting the post-war American independent film movement and earning an Oscar nomination. Now gloriously restored by the Cineteca di Bologna, On the Bowery is both an incredible document of a bygone era and a vivid and devastating portrait of addiction that resonates today just as it did when it was made.
Kidnapped by Roman soldiers, four beautiful women must battle for their lives in The Arena . . . while attempting to beat the Romans at their own game. They're fast. They're beautiful. They're deadly . . . they have to be. A fashion photography assignment teams three American models and inadvertently plunges them into the mystery and danger of international espionage in Cover Girl Models. In Fly Me, a group of martial arts assassins board a passenger plane. Once in the air, the group terrorizes the passengers and insists that the plane be rerouted to another destination.
DVD Review SOMETHING WILD
A quarter century has done nothing to dim the many charms of arguably Jonathan Demme's best movie. Now looking more choice than ever, on Criterion Blu-ray.
