Viewing Journal: 7/22/2010





146) THE RED SHOES
(1948 dir. Michael Powell) 3rd Viewing: July 22 2010

This blu-ray is too good for words. A must own for all cinephiles. The HD transfer of the technicolor is too beautiful. Almost makes me want to cry. The best blu-ray release of 2010 thus far.











145) VALHALLA RISING
(2010 dir. Nicolas Winding Refn) Date Seen: July 22 2010



 
The macho story is like something Bruckheimer would produce, but the tone, hypnotic images and deliberate pace is like something out of Herzog's über poetic HEART OF GLASS (1977). Currently available on IFC on-demand.
