Wagner - The Complete Epic

Wagner - The Complete Epic Lowest used price: $45.90
List price: $69.98
Brand: Kultur

Over a hundred years after his death, Richard Wagner remains an enigma. His was a rags-to-riches saga with a fairy tale ending. He was loved, yet hated; admired, yet despised. He was a heroic villian who was worshipped and whose fame and exploits were the gossip of Europe. Above all, he was an incurable romantic whose affair with Liszt's illegitimate daughter rivals that of Romeo and Juliet. But he was also a dangerous political revolutionary whose influence penetrated the fabric of German society in the nineteenth century. He was a legend in his own lifetime, and he was one of the greatest composers to ever live. Only an actor of the stature of Richard Burton could measure up to the titanic character of Wagner, and this proved to be his final film role. Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave co-stars as Cosima, Wagner's second wife, a woman who had a dramatic impact on German history until her death in 1930. The incredible supporting cast also includes screen legend Sir Laurence Olivier. Filmed in wide screen 35mm Dolby Stereo, this major drama production is one of the largest East West coproductions ever undertaken.

All The Queen's Men

All The Queen's Men Lowest new price: $7.23
Lowest used price: $2.50
List price: $14.97
Brand: Warner Home Video

WWII spy comedy. An American army officer (Matt LeBlanc) leads a mismatched team of British Special Services who must go in disguise as women and infiltrate a female-run Enigma factory in Berlin and bring back the decoding device that will end the war. The team, with the exception of one member who happens to be a drag performer (Eddie Izzard), must learn the basic skills for completing their mission, like walking in heels and applying lipstick. The American and his team stumble through the German factory in full drag, barely escaping the clutches of German soldiers, while attempting to complete the most important mission of their lives.

All the Queen's Men has the makings of a broad comedy--in particular, it features men in dresses. At the height of World War II, American agent Matt LeBlanc (Lost in Space, the TV series Friends) leads an oddball team behind enemy lines to steal a Nazi code-making machine; the trick is, the factory where the machines are made is entirely staffed by women, and so the team has to go in drag. But despite this seemingly farcical premise, All the Queen's Men is strongest in its dramatic elements, such as a scene in which the team is delayed when Allied airplanes bomb Berlin, forcing the undercover operatives to see the havoc of war from the other side. LeBlanc is the weak link; the rest of the team (David Birkin, James Cosmo, and brilliant comedian/transvestite Eddie Izzard) navigate the film's unstable tone and numerous implausibilities with considerably greater skill. --Bret Fetzer

Shot through the Heart (DVD)

History runs deeper than friendship- and blood runs deeper than both. Two friends (Linus Roache & Vincent Perez), each a champion marksman, have been inseparable since childhood, but the collapse of their nation divided by civil war in a ruthless, bloody struggle for independence and power. Almost overnight, neighbors and families once united are torn apart-and two best friends themselves on opposite sides of a deadly line. One turns sniper for the enemy-the other, almost, stays to defend his community. Now, in a war where so many innocents have fallen, and so many more must fall, two best friends are forced to pull the trigger. Only one will feel the bullet, but both will feel the pain.

Somewhere in Europe

Somewhere in Europe Lowest new price: $19.99
Lowest used price: $20.14
List price: $29.95
Brand: FACETS VIDEO

SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE is the first major achievement of postwar Hungarian cinema as well as a key film in the history of neorealist cinema. Directed by Geza Radvanyi and co-written by legendary film critic and scholar Bela Balazs, SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE is a De Sica-like tale of homeless war orphans in devastated postwar Hungary. Living by their wits and stealing to eat, a ragged band of scavenging children take refuge in a ruined castle, only to discover it’s inhabited by an eccentric orchestra conductor who has been emotionally and spiritually destroyed by war. Both children and adult find a renewed sense of community and hope until a bitter encounter with "civilized" society proves it’s as cruel as ever. Impressively filmed by Barnabas Hegyi and produced by the Hungarian Communist Party before it took power, SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE is a rediscovered treasure that compares favorably to the greatest of Italian Neorealist films.

25 Fireman Street

25 Fireman Street Lowest new price: $5.89
Lowest used price: $6.94
List price: $29.98
Brand: Kino International

Comic, melancholy, ribald and hallucinatory, 25 Firemans Street is both a groundbreaking entry into the New Hungarian Cinema of the seventies and a timeless, intoxicatingly rich moviemaking triumph. Director Istv+¡n Szabo (Mephisto, Sunshine) masterfully evokes everything from Borges to Bru+Ýel to Proust as he freely blends rich characterizations with visionary surrealism and kitchen sink realism. On one hot summer night, the residents of a Hungarian apartment house slated for demolition restlessly revisit their haunted pasts as they face an uncertain future. In a gently turning kaleidoscope of dream imagery, regret-laden nostalgia and painstakingly intimate detail, the looming wrecking ball pales in significance to the accumulated experience each dreamer revisits. Pre-war prejudice, occupying Nazis and Stalinist deprivations all come and go as each tenant's backward glance yields moments of aching sensuality, infectious exuberance and catastrophic loss. Through an affirming cascade of poetic wanderings through lives lived to the fullest, 25 Firemans Street plots a personal map of Hungary's fortunes from Hapsburgs to the Soviets. Conjuring up a canvas of recent Eastern European history to create a tapestry of personal histories shaped by war. Combining sure-handed storytelling with visual enchantment, 25 Firemans Street marries the whimsically ethereal with the tragically concrete. Presented here for the first time on DVD, Kino On Video proudly offers an unforgettable cinematic nocturne that has remained as inspiring and innovative as it was upon first release in 1973.
