"A true artist – My God, he had talent!" — Orson Welles

These versions of Blind Husbands, Foolish Wives and Queen Kelly are the most comprehensive to date. The recent restorations of these films are remarkable although numerous scratches remain (you can't work miracles on masters as damaged as Foolish Wives), but Queen Kelly is remarkably clean for a silent film. Through their innovative style and incredible visual originality, Blind Husbands, Foolish Wives and Queen Kelly are still surprisingly modern today as when they were created by the director of Greed. And each of these classics still carry an unique scent of scandal.

Nous voici ici en présence des versions de ces trois films (Maris aveugles, Folies de femmes et Queen Kelly) les plus complètes à ce jour. De plus, les restaurations effectuées dernièrement sont vraiment très réussies et si demeurent d'innombrables scratchs et rayures en tous genres (on ne peut pas faire de miracles non plus, surtout pour des masters aussi abîmées que celui de Folies de femmes), les copies ont retrouvées une belle jeunesse (surtout en comparaison de celles ignobles, et à bannir de toute urgence, proposées dans une collection de DVD vendue sur Cdiscount, Ciné Club Hollywood), celle de Queen Kelly étant même remarquablement propre pour un muet. Bref, pour ces films des années 20, je ne vois pas comment il aurait été possible de faire mieux ; et pour ne rien gâcher, la compression s'avère parfaitement bien gérée. Du très bon travail.

40th Anniversary Heavyweight Vinyl & Hi Res Audio Edition. Here's the edition of Ziggy Stardust everyone has been waiting for since David Bowie executed the character onstage nearly 40 years ago. Originally released through RCA Victor on June 6, 1972, Ziggy Stardust was Bowie’s fifth album, co-produced by Bowie and Ken Scott. The album eventually peaked at #5 on the UK Album Chart. Its influence is immeasurable, as it converted legions of fans, becoming the zeitgeist and a major influence on the next generation, particularly to those involved in the punk movement. Famously, Bowie killed Ziggy at his peak at London’s Hammersmith Odeon, on July 3rd, 1973. Pop music was never the same again.

Lon Chaney, 'the man of a thousand faces', gives his most famous performance in this first version of the oft-filmed tale. Based on Gaston Leroux's novel, Chaney stars as the 'Phantom', living in the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, who falls in love with the voice of a young opera singer. Infatuated, he kidnaps her, dragging her to the depths below where she will sing only for him.
Directed by Rupert Julian, this lavish 1925 production launched the Hollywood Gothic style - which would become the trademark of Universal horror films.
Original prints of the film were fully tinted, with some sequences in Technicolor, and a rooftop scene using a special process that enabled the Phantom's cloak to show red against the blue night sky. This Photoplay restoration carefully re-instates all these effects, and is accompanied by Carl Davis' celebrated score which draws heavily on Gounod's Faust, which is the opera being performed in the film.

Lively and bustling with sounds, movie screenings in Japan during the silent film era were anything but silent. Silent films in Japan were rarely silent. Screenings were accompanied by live music performed by bands of musicians and narration by katsudo benshi or motion picture narrators. Movie theaters in Japan were home to exciting live performances where the trinity of images, music and narrating conjured up the magic of cinema. The Talking Silents series from Digital Meme recreates this unique Japanese screening format.

Score AC3 2.0 @ 192 Kbps with English intertitles and Spanish subs
Genre: Drama, Classics

In 1928, after years of struggles within the studio system, Erich von Stroheim found the opportunity to create his crowning achievement: a storybook romance of intoxicating beauty, counterbalanced with a frightfully grim tale of moral corruption. Gloria Swanson stars as an innocent convent girl who falls under the spell of a handsome prince (Walter Byron) on the eve of his marriage to a diabolical queen (Seena Owen).

Man with a Movie Camera (1929) [Re-UP]

Man with a Movie Camera (1929)
A Film by Dziga Vertov
DVD9 | VIDEO_TS | PAL 4:3 | 01:07:08 | 7,24 Gb
Silent or Michael Nyman's Score with Russian intertitles and English subs
Genre: Documentary, Avant-garde

A playful documentary of a day in the life of the Soviet Union.
Man With a Movie Camera is an extraordinary piece of filmmaking. An exuberant montage of urban Russia, it represents the people of the city at work and at play, and the machines that keep the city going with energetic lyricism. A member of the Soviet avant-garde, Vertov used a variety of pioneering cinematic techniques to document the full spectrum of 1929 Soviet life - dissolves, split screen, slow motion and freeze frames - and produced a radical experiment that is exhilarating and intellectually brilliant.

Luis Buñuel’s final film explodes with eroticism, bringing full circle the director’s lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire. Buñuel regular Fernando Rey plays Mathieu, an urbane widower, tortured by his lust for the elusive Conchita. With subversive flare, Buñuel uses two different actresses in the lead—Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty, and Angela Molina, a Spanish coquette. Drawn from Pierre Louÿs’s 1898 novel, La Femme et le Pantin, That Obscure Object of Desire is a dizzying game of sexual politics punctuated by a terror that harkens back to Buñuel’s brilliant surrealistic beginnings.
