DISCLOSURE: TWISTED BY THE POOL

Comparisons to Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage, which was filmed by Roman Polanski as Carnage, are inevitable when viewing DISCLOSURE, written and directed by Michael Bentham.

It’s comparison in a good way, not damning it by being derivative, not to bury, but to praise.

Power couple Joel and Bec Chalmers have come to Danny and Emily Bowman’s bucolic abode in outer Melbourne’s fern tree gullies to mitigate and mediate over their son’s attack on the Bowman’s 4-year-old girl, Natasha

At first, all seems cool, calm and collected, as they discuss parenting and discipline around the pool. But the veneer of civility slips with the introduction of “button” words like victim and bully and politician Joel’s incapacity to curb taking constant calls on his mobile phone.

Manners mortared, politeness torpedoed, the discussion of the alleged assault escalates into a verbal squabble of stupendously espoused vitriol, an uncivil vomiting of contradicting convictions, a spewing of grotesque prejudices and a skewering of veiled hypocrisy.

The casting of DISCLOSURE is spot on. Matilda Ridgway as Emily Bowman and Mark Leonard Winter as Danny Bowman play the parents of the accuser while Geraldine Hakewill as Bec Chalmers and Tom Wren as Joel Chalmers portray the parents of the accused.

As the mobile phone fetishist and political manipulator, Tom Wren delivers a portrait of the very worst of opportunist, populist, pragmatic politicians, patrician and unctuous. Geraldine Hakewill is splendid in a Stepford Wife type character holed by the hypocrisy that hovers over her own troubled history.

The other couple teams two prodigious talents, in Matilda Ridgway and Mark Leonard Winter, marvelous in conveying the knife edge balancing act of maintaining a marriage, parenting and employment in tempestuous times.

Decorum and diplomacy is eroded and finally scuttled by the adults, as disclosures are weaponised, DISCLOSURE becomes a demolition derby of threat, blackmail and a spiral of adulthood into infantilism.

DISCLOSURE is available to rent on Home Entertainment Platforms from September 15

FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL (2008) – WIDESCREEN 111 MINUTE CENSORED VERSION

CENSORED VOD DISNEY+ SPLASH (1984) – MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES –

 

Disney always the home of “G rated” entertainment for children, created “Touchstone Pictures” to make and release proper movie films for the parents, that were the opposite of the required Disney outlook. Using only the Disney name on VOD Disney+ means that TV Episodes and Cinema Movies are being chopped up into “G rated” entertainment perfect for children, that is uniquely unsuitable for parents.     Continue reading CENSORED VOD DISNEY+ SPLASH (1984) – MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES –

CAN HEIRONYMUS MERKIN EVER FORGET MERCY HUMPPE AND FIND TRUE HAPPINESS

“Heironymus Merkin” constantly exhibits his intense feelings of lust/love via his strong sexual desires/attractions, and he currently is my all-time favourite fictional character. However his only movie appearance was in Anthony George Newley’s 1969 British comedy musical movie called – “Can Heironymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness?” As expected “Can Heironymus Merkin” was condemned by the Catholic Legion of Decency. MPAA USA made “Can Heironymus Merkin” the sixth film to be designated with the X rating.

Each and every ridiculously over-the-top crazy fictional character has some basis in reality. In January 1969 “Heironymus Merkin” was a brand-new slightly fictional movie character, that was not created out of thin air, so Anthony George Newley IS THE REAL “Heironymus Merkin”.

PSYCHO – 60TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION [Blu-ray] [4K UHD Blu-ray]

PSYCHO 60TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION [Blu-ray]  [4K UHD Blu-ray] includes two alternate widescreen versions –
* PSYCHO UNCUT . . . THIS RESTORATION VERSION has been extended with additional footage, now providing the widescreen version of the movie identical to the widescreen version seen in USA movie cinemas in 1960, and this is the final directors-cut version of PSYCHO, delivered exactly as intended by Sir Alfred Hitchcock.
* PSYCHO CUT . . . Since 1960, there were two widely seen modified versions of the movie. However both the full screen AND the widescreen version, were modified from the original version, by editing to selectively remove content, and then subsequently used for TV broadcasts, Cable broadcasts, cinema theatrical re-releases, and NTSC/PAL home video entertainment releases over the last sixty years.

THE GRIZZLIES: LACROSSE TO BEAR

A little bit To Sir With Love, a little bit Wake in Fright, THE GRIZZLIES is the inspiring true story of first-year teacher Russ Sheppard, who takes a temporary assignment to teach at a high school in Kugluktuk, a small arctic town with the highest suicide rate in North America.

A polar nullabor, Kugluktuk is desolate in both geographical terrain and cultural disjoint, the impact of the white man on the indigenous community has had a devastating effect, creating an ennui in the Inuit that decays spirit, mind and body.

Woke white teacher, Russ Shepherd is shaken at having no success at getting his Inuit students to show up for class, shocked at seeing that many of the teens roam around town drinking and smoking dope.

Finding a way to curb this state of futility, failure and fatalism comes in a flash after attending yet another funeral. He believes that teaching them the sport of lacrosse will get them in school and motivate them to achieve. It’s a recipe for respect building that resonates those three little words. Against. All. Odds.

Attempting a tightrope project that could plunge into condescension and tokenism, it was deeply important to the producers of THE GRIZZLIES to create an environment of collaboration and an atmosphere of inclusion and respect in the depiction of this true story of real people. As part of this commitment, they created a paid mentorship program that enabled Inuit crew, Inuit and Indigenous actors, Inuit musicians, and Inuit creative collaborators to work on the film in each and every department.

THE GRIZZLIES has provided a training ground for future Inuit and Indigenous filmmakers with more than 91% of the cast and more than 33% of the crew being Inuit or Indigenous.

Directed by Miranda de Pencier, with a screenplay by Breaking Bad scenarist, Moira Walley-Beckett and the writer of Speed, Graham Yost, THE GRIZZLIES navigates the thorny themes of cultural imposition and reconciliation with dignity and taste.

THE GRIZZLIES is available to rent or buy on all major platforms and on DVD.

THE BAY OF SILENCE: BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

You get more Bang for your buck in THE BAY OF SILENCE thanks to leading man, Claes Bang. His portrayal of Will, the aggrieved and grieving spouse of schizophrenic Rosalind is mesmerising.

In a film where murky narrative obfuscates and muddies understanding, Bang is irresistibly watchable, whether doing the mundane of taking a bath or the horrific in burying a child.

Bang’s Will is brilliant whether bereft and bewildered or noble and nurturing, banging down the dinosaur ideas and narrow view of masculinity, firmly focused on family, protective and supportive after subjection to seemingly insurmountable slings and sorrows.

Caroline Goodall’s script, adapted from the novel by Lisa St Aubin deTeran, bears all the tropes of classic suspense – the locked suitcase, the ordinary man caught up in extraordinary circumstances, the mysterious woman with a past, the secret antagonist, a lonely house on a cliff, diverse plot twists, a pervasive sense of foreboding.

After the difficult birth of their son, Amadeo, rocks their carefully calibrated world, the unexpected arrival of a suitcase from France, filled with photos from the past, prompts Rosalind to abruptly disappear with her children, launching Will into a frantic search for his family across Europe.

Relief upon locating them in a remote French fishing village turns to horror when he discovers that his baby son has mysteriously died, Rosalind has retreated into a world filled with the ghosts of her past, and her twin eight-year- old daughters speak in riddles. Candy has disappeared.

In his grief and desperation he sees only two options: go to the police and risk his wife being accused of murder or cover up the death and protect his family. He secretly buries Amadeo and flees France with the remnants of his family.

The penny will drop for most audiences, with repercussions spinning on a dime, while plot points take a pounding. But the film’s currency is clearly with Claes Bang and certainly worth the bucks.

KOKO: A RED DOG STORY

 

A pleasant surprise, KOKO: A RED DOG STORY is a bone fido gem.

Millions of ticket buyers made Red Dog: The Movie a mega box office hit, and rightly so. The story was an archetypal Outback story featuring an adorable dog, a story with the indelible ingredients of love, loyalty and loss.

Like many movies, the back story of its making, the pains and pleasures of its production, is just as extraordinary and entertaining, and in this endearing tale, we follow the story of KOKO – the dog who played RED DOG in the first film of the same name.

Part documentary, part re-enactment, KOKO: A RED DOG STORY is a best on show story that tracks Koko’s strange good fortune and innate ability to connect with people, which allows him to navigate his local community, the dog beat dog world of show dog competitions and eventually the movie business.

Director of Red Dog, Kriv Stenders shares some amazing straight to camera anecdotes about the film’s casting and shoot, then TobyTruslove plays Kriv in some highly entertaining reenactments. Ditto, producer of the original pic, Nelson Woss appears as himself, and is then played by Felix Williamson.

And wait till you see Bryan Brown’s knockout cameo.

What could have been mere puppy porn becomes a beautiful and sincere film with emotional bite as the behind scenes story of this larrikin Lassie is told with an irreverent but real appreciation of not just one dog, but of a troupe of dogs, and, indeed, all dogs.

A portion of the DVD’s release revenue will be aiding The Dogs’ Refuge Home of W.A. Since 2012 the RED DOG franchise has contributed over $125,000 to shelters around Australia.

Umbrella Entertainment and Good Dog Distribution will distribute the film via DVD and VOD. Full details of the release can be found here:

APARTMENT 1BR: RENT OR DIE

Giving terrifying new meaning to the term Rent Control, APARTMENT 1BR is a C bomb fallout with the C standing for capital letter Cult.

After leaving behind a painful past to follow her dreams as a dress designer,
Sarah scores the perfect Hollywood apartment. The neighbours seem super nice and there appears to be a genuine collegiate community.

The only downside is the no pets policy, which she decides to ignore, smuggling her pussy in regardless of the rules. Pussy soon pays the price in a feline version of bunny boiling and suddenly Sarah’s new digs become a black hole.

The apartment block is an enclave of a cult which Sarah is inculcated in through torturous means, including a kind of crucifixion.

APARTMENT 1BR is a neatly crafted nasty piece of work following the well worn trope of torture of women by males and the female reeking bloody revenge on the male. It is of course, unfortunately, reflective of the real world.

So, too, is commitment to conformity. Conformity is the community’s basic tenet, that all tenants adhere to the same rules, that all transgressions will be punished, and that the ends justify the means, no matter how mean the means may be.

Writer director David Marmor plots the paranoia by setting his compass to conspiracy with detours into physical and psychological shock, traversing the terra of terror, arriving at an even more disturbing destination.

Nicole Brydon Bloom is impressive as Sarah, the lost soul who capitulates to the cult but retains some vestige of individuality.

Taylor Nichols as Jerry, the cult leader building manager and Giles Matthey as his Iraq war veteran right hand man are chillingly representative of pernicious persuasion

An unnerving view of Neighbourhood Watch, APARTMENT1BR gives a new lease on the haunted house estate.

APARTMENT 1BR is now available for rent- if you dare

It’s AD45 and two years on from invading Britannia, General Aulus is Romanising willing Celt tribes with the help of Celtic Queen Amena , and crushing those who try to resist.

The only form of hope for the Druids and Celts is Cait, a young girl being trained by outcast Druid Divis, to fulfil a prophecy that would save Britannia from the Romans. But when the dead man wakes, two Druid brothers – Veran and Harka begin an epic battle of wills that divides the Druids and puts the prophecy in jeopardy.
