Quote:Consider yourself lucky to be able to share your cinematic experiences with someone your appreciates them as much as you do.
Since I've met A and Matalo Matango, I enjoy cinema more than ever. I always thought I would never meet anybody else whose view on film is comparable to mine.
Big DVD-Market again in Nuremberg - and again, beside some nice Eurocult-Stuff, I picked up some DVDs you usually don't buy (and, especially, find) in this place.
Another one from Europe's most subversive auteur Jess Franco, La Fille de Dracula / Daughter of Dracula (1972). Fortunately, the DVD includes the original french version as well as german and english subtitles.
The most sought DVDs of the market (although this was the wrong place to look for it): Anything by Douglas Sirk. A german Bootleg (...) of "Imitation of Life" (1959) took my heart to the clouds...
Another potential masterpiece by my beloved Jean Rollin, "La Nuit des traques / Night of the Hunted" (1980) which is said to be his most realistic and unpoetic film. Can't imagine what is expecting me but at least, the image quality of Encore's 2-Disc-Set from the Netherlands is probably the best, I've ever seen such a film in (of this age) and the Bonus Materials are quite fine, and so is the whole Criterion-like Package.
Speaking of Criterion, I digged out the DVD of Robert Bresson's "Mouchette" (1967) and because of the nice price (20 Euros) and my adoration for Bresson's "Balthazar", I bought it spontaneously.
An incredibly cheap (10 Euros!) and great Box-Set, including 7 Films by Eckhart Schmidt (beside Rudolf Thome, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Klaus Lemke another member of the "Munich Group"), the icon of Germany's 80ies Cinema. The 7 (long sough after) titles: The controversial "Der Fan / Trance" (1982), "Die Story / The Story" (1984), the underrated Science-Fiction-Crime-Drama "Loft" (1985), "Alpha City" (1985), the spiritual melodrama "Das Wunder / The Miracle" (1985), the musical comedy "Wie treu ist Nik? / How true is Nik?" (1986) and his latest, rarely distributed Low-Budget-Feature-Film (shot in english with an american Cast), the tragic Lovestory "Sunset Motel" (2003) as a DVD-Premiere (I don't know if any festival or theatrical distributor accepted it).
In Addition, another italian Schlock-Horrorfilm, the crappy and cheap "Murder Secret" (1989) by Mario Bianchi. If there will be the same, perverse fascination for the worst as Lucio Fulci's "Demonia" brought me? When I saw it the first time, I hated it...
And a "Poliziottesco"-Double-Feature by NoShame, including the final film of the great Massimo Dallamano (maybe the italian Sam Fuller), "Quelli della calibro 38 / Colt 38 Special Squad" (1976) and Luciano Ercoli's long-lost last film "La Bidonata / The Rip-Off" (1977).
Here are the Screenshots of the german "The most important thing: Love"-DVD I promised you, arsaib:
Probably, it is available via X-ploited Cinema and / or sazuma.com
