starring: David Carradine, Sylvester Stallone
d. Paul Bartel
Format: DVD | Blu-Ray
Welcome to the year 2000, now a place plagued by a lack of morals and political unrest. The only thing that society looks forward to is the three-day Transcontinental Death Race, a high-speed competition that is won by the driver who collects the most points by killing spectators and pedestrians. But this year the drivers have something to worry about other than getting killed by rival contestants: there is a group of anti-race activists trying to stop the race for good. The games all-time champion, Frankenstein (David Carradine), takes on such colorful characters as Machine Gun Joe Viterbo (Sylvester Stallone), Calamity Jane (Mary Woronov), Nero The Hero (Martin Kove) and Matilda The Hun (Roberta Collins) in this dark comedy-science fiction classic directed by Paul Bartel ( Eating Raoul).
starring: Richard Harris, Monica Vitti
d. Michelangelo Antonioni
Format: DVD | Blu-ray
Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1960s panoramas of contemporary alienation were decade-defining artistic events, and RED DESERT, his first color film, remains one of his greatest. This provocative look at the spiritual desolation of the technological age–about a disaffected woman, brilliantly portrayed by Antonioni muse Monica Vitti (L’avventura), wandering through a bleak industrial landscape beset by power plants and environmental toxins, and tentatively flirting with her husband’s coworker, played by Richard Harris (This Sporting Life)–continues to exert force over viewers. With one startling, painterly composition after another–of abandoned fishing cottages, electrical towers, overwhelming docked ships–RED DESERT creates a nearly apocalyptic image of its time, and confirms Antonioni as cinema’s preeminent poet of the modern age.
starring: Lacey Chabert, Brandon Quinn
