    Exclusive Audio Interview: Peter Strickland talks Jess Franco and “THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY”

    British born director Peter Strickland (BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO) is a filmmaker who defies easy categorization. His latest picture is the arty, gorgeously designed, scored and acted surrealist chamber drama THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY. The film is a singular experience; the tender tale of an older woman (Sidse Babett Knudsen), her younger lover (Chiarra Danna) and their volatile sadomasochistic relationship.

    “THE MONTAUK CHRONICLES” (Film Review)

    Writer/director Christopher P. Garetano’s arch pseudo-documentary THE MONTAUK CHRONICLES has existed in various forms and cuts for almost five years. Screened publicly in 2012, Garetano kept obsessively tinkering with the film, adding footage, re-structuring and delaying its official release time and time again. Of course, for those that were following its stop-and-start existence, the behind the scenes drama only added to the myth of the film and drew attention the shadowy conspiracies it aims to investigate. Now, New Yorkers will have the chance to catch the world premiere of the current – and purportedly final – cut, screening as part of the Third Annual Phillip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival, this Saturday at 5 p.m. at The Producer’s Club.

    “THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL” (Blu-ray Review)

    PLANET OF THE APES director Franklin J. Schaffner’s chilling 1978 programmer THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL is one of those glorious international, big budget melting pot thrillers whose presence has long since ebbed, having peaked in the 1970’s before fading into oblivion. But the film, based on a wild same-named novel by ROSEMARY’S BABY author Ira Levin, is miles removed from DOCTOR ZHIVAGO, WHERE EAGLES DARE; BOYS is a horror movie, plain and simple. The film follows Levin’s interest in perverted child birth while it exemplifies Schaffner’s deft hand at wrangling massive casts (who again, speak a wide array of languages), multiple locations and managing to make sprawling pictures that are both supremely epic while claustrophobically intimate. And though it wasn’t a financial success upon release, the film has found a devoted cult via TV airings and later, the VHS rental market. And now, Shout! Factory has brought it to Blu-ray.
