Poll My how they have changed Get the U. Feedly More RSS feeds A male-female quartet with a folk-rock penchant, their harmonies will elicit comparisons with Fleetwood Mac, but the acoustic instrumentation looks more to country, with Fire And Water a lively hoedown and Burning Bridges a nostalgic ballad. It mixes new material from stars such as Sia and Dua Lipa with pop newcomers. They race through the first ten songs without pausing for breath, slowing the pace only on the atmospheric closer Desert Dust. Singer Richard Jobson is a galvanising presence, while Bruce Watson wisely avoids trying to emulate the angular guitar sounds of the late Stuart Adamson.
He spends as much time talking as singing, but the simple setting suits his informal approach. Back to top Home News U. BUY more. Tears into Wine: J.

Frisby IV. Stephen J. Mariea Calhoun Smith. The Psychology of Adult Spanking, Vol. Wallace D. What Do You Think of Me? Why Do I Care? What Is the Bible? What's Happening to My Body? Why Motivating People Doesn't Work. Free Tears of Glory book by Dennis Pedersen. Even more striking, as Gabriel grows into a teenager, he raises the dead by crying tears of blood, saving his principal from a heart attack and his best friend Mary after a horrific car crash.
With each miracle, the paramedics and doctors are astounded, but Gabriel refuses to take credit, saying only that they occurred through the grace of God. Everything changes for Gabriel when, on his way to Rwanda as a Peace Corps volunteer, his plane is struck down in a storm. The plane crashes on a remote island in the Atlantic, killing all aboard except for him and leaving him stranded.
Though taken in by a tribe of friendly natives, Gabriel soon realizes that he has no way to get home to his family and Mary, with whom he has begun to fall in love. As Gabriel searches for a way home and struggles to come to terms with his miraculous powers, he will encounter more challenges than he ever dreamed possible. Hire speaks more dialogue in the first ten minutes than he does in the first 80 pages of the novel.
The presentation of the film is startling, vivid. Vaguely tut-tutting that Hitchcock raided this picture for elements later seen in overrating the film.

The Pearl—Buck—conceived story of Communist Chinese doing some revolutionary Catholic bashing as seen from the bashed side offers almost a full hour of lower grade Going My Way stuff with a butched—up Clifton Webb as the Fitzgerald surrogate disapproving of fresh recruit William Holden the Crosby surrogate before exploding into some weird wild anti-Communism plot points and willful misunderstandings of rape.
Martin Benson as the Russian apparatchik pinching his pince-nez and holding his cig between thumb and forefinger is a classic portrayal of HUAC—nightmare Red Villainy. A maddening piece of work This Kenji Mizoguchi picture has been more commonly known in the West as The Crucified Lovers , which is both more sensationalistic and not entirely inaccurate but the truly salient feature of this tale is that it indeed derives from an 18 th century puppet play by Chikamatsu Monzaemon. Do not be confused: this is not a puppet movie, it is beautifully acted by an ensemble of humans including Kyoko Kugawa, who contributes a quiet, revealing interview to the supplements.
And yes, you read right, this is a movie, same year Mizoguchi made the immortal Sansho the Bailiff and Uwasa no ona , aka The Crucified Woman. The fabulous restoration yields a sumptuous black-and-white image. So at the end of every year I rearrange my computer desktop. Folders for freelance work, SCR work, and more go on to an external hard drive and are replaced on the desktop with folders for the current year.
Last one was in May, and I did it for the tenth anniversary of the blog, mainly because it represented the only type of writing that I couldn't find anyone to pay me for. Not the ONLY kind, but you get my meaning. Having pushed myself to get it done I thought, well that wasn't so bad, and immediately set about doing another, and of course I got too busy and never got it done. But I had still watched all the discs in a period that extended well past August, mind you and made notes, and there they sat, on my desktop.
So I thought, January being a fairly fallow work time, maybe I can draft them up into something, so I did, although in many cases I am just presenting the notes themselves, as a glimpse into certain habits of mind that some of you might find amusing. The sole ringer here is the review for The Comfort of Strangers , a disc I only watched last week.
The blackness of the bottom of the well. The blackness of the container of water. Back when it came out in it was in some quarters dismissed as old Billy Wilder trying to do one of his acid romances new-style, with cussing and nudity and all.

Now, the movie is itself old. There are unexpected moments of lyricism here, also sourer-than-usual bits of misogyny and projected transphobia with the mustachioed-maid joke. An anomaly and a curio. Looks good and is a fabulous film, a well-paced and consistently scarifying haunted house mystery with a restrained and convincing George C. Scott lead performance. Lots of then late-model Fords getting involved in all manner of mishaps, quite a time warp to my suburban teens.
Among the extras is a typically spectacular Schrader commentary.
But Shout! John Alton shooting in color Cinemascope is as much a recommendation for this Blu-ray as one would need I suppose. Bacall and Peck struck me as a very mismatched couple. And that climactic brawl. This is one of those demonstrations that no amount of digital scrubbing can make a movie that purposely looks TERRIBLE look any less terrible, and that is how it should be. And yet by this point in his career John Waters with Charles Ruggero has sufficient editing chops to pull off the scene in which Divine plays two characters, one of whom rapes the other.
And yes, the skid mark on the Fruit of the Loom is there in spectacular HD. Hard to describe this Dutch counterculture relationship drama. A prodigiously drinking male constantly pranks his lovely female partner, including with fake suicide attempts, while relentlessly pursuing side interests including a pre- Emmanuelle Sylvia Kristal.

Energetic if ultimately pointless, with lots of nudity on a not-at-all-bad-looking disc. Jean Pierre Aumont phones in the great French lover bit, e. I wish you lots of unhappiness. Dennis Hopper was right.
Claude Rains is fabulous, one of his greatest performances. Truculent and weaselly wimpy within a single breath. And in motion, this Blu-ray looks absolutely wonderful. Audio mix is fabulous.
Sexism aside, the congenial sympathies of Quine and Edwards are practically palpable. Lovely transfer. It feels like a movie everyone had a good time on. This features Jane Russell as a barely-disguised prostitute thrown out of San Francisco for being a barely disguised prostitute and going to Hawaii and dying her hair red and becoming a barely disguised prostitute who get real estate investment tips from semi-Hemingwayesque author Richard Egan.
It all goes pretty well until Pearl Harbor. Raoul Walsh directed. Agnes Morehead plays a barely disguised madam. CinemaScope, Deluxe Color, Catchy tunes. A lot to chew on for Jordan Peterson. These are mean mean people. Ehringer is the future: with film critics a generation or two younger than myself, the thing with Hitchcock from now on is gonna be three parts slagging for every one part praise.
Curtiz directed so many pictures that a truly comprehensive account could have devolved into tedious box-checking. Rode does an admirable job balancing narrative momentum with critical perspective, breaking down how Curtiz could bring a cinematic dynamism to the least promising material. He doesn't shirk from Curtiz's poor autocratic, monomaniacal, almost consistently amoral character either. Pretty juicy epistolary novel but maybe not the best Balzac starter.
Dirty Money all by Richard Stark. I don't find serious fault with any of the Parker books, but I admit I could see, from 's Comeback to 's Breakout , the author straining a bit to fit the nearly primeval Parker into the modern world of cyber-crime and that sort of thing. The last page of Parrot is as good as anything Westlake ever achieved. David Moody. Epic, tragic. It's one of those stories where as much as you understand the grave injustices committed, you can't imagine it unfolding any other way. The Pisan Cantos by Ezra Pound.
