  • Donald in Mathmagic Land - DVD

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Aug 18, 2009

    This Oscar-nominated featurette is a typically felicitous Disney combination of music and live action. In search of big game, hunter Donald Duck stumbles into a strange and wonderous land dominated by numbers: numbers on the ground, numbers in the trees, numbers in the river, even numbered footprints left behind by a walking pencil. The offscreen voice of The Spirit of Adventure informs Donald that he is in Mathmagic Land, immediately dispelling the duck's dismissive attitude that mathematics is "egghead stuff" by immediately highlighting the correlation between math and music. We then travel back in time to Pythagoras, who uses mathematical equations to produce the most beautiful of music. He also disovers the "mathmagic" in the pentagram and the golden rectangle, which can mathematically reproduce itself indefinitely, and is also the foundation of all architecture and scupture. Much to Donald's fascination, he learns that mathematics can even apply to the shapes of nature, from a starfish to a tree, and to such common everyday game as chess, baseball, football, basketball and billiards. Finally, there's the most exciting "game" of all: the shape of things that are discovered and formulated in the human mind. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

  • The New York Ripper - Blu-ray Disc

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Oct 6, 2009

    Jack Hedley of The Anniversary stars as a hardbitten police lieutenant tracking a sadistic sex-killer in this gruesome thriller from splatter-maven Lucio Fulci. The misogynistic script (by Fulci and prolific collaborators Gianfranco Clerici and Vincenzo Mannino) posits a femme-hating psycho (who talks like Donald Duck) slashing beautiful women with a switchblade and a straight-razor because his daughter is in the hospital and will never grow up to be beautiful. Fulci was apparently trying to work in a statement about American competitiveness by making his heroine (Antonella Interlenghi) an aspiring Olympic athlete, and having a killer who is concerned that his daughter will never be "the best," but the point gets lost amidst the buckets of blood and gratuitously kinky sex scenes. Pandering to the lowest common denominator as never before in his career, Fulci showed with this blatant play for the sicko slasher crowd that the days of well-plotted, stylish Italian horror were gone, replaced with the most vicious sort of sexual violence and perversion. Despite all of that, there is one fairly masterful sequence in which the suspect's S&M sex partner learns his identity from a radio broadcast and must untie herself and escape while he sleeps. This scene is tense and nerve-wracking, a high-point of genuine fear amidst a nauseating collage of metal blades slicing female flesh. A shameful piece of work that makes Mario Landi's Giallo a Venezia look positively liberated, it co-stars Renato Rossini, Andrea Occhipinti, and Paolo Malco, with cult figures Alessandra Delli Colli, Daniela Doria, and Barbara Cupisti on the chopping block. Cinematographer Luigi Kuveiller, editor Vincenzo Tomassi, and composer Francesco De Masi have all done better work. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide
