How to describe Nobuhiko Obayashiâ€™s indescribable 1977 movie HOUSE (Hausu)? As a psychedelic ghost tale? A stream-of-consciousness bedtime story? An episode of Scooby-Doo as directed by Mario Bava? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory head trip about a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing auntâ€™s creaky country home and comes face-to-face with evil spirits, a demonic house cat, a bloodthirsty piano, and other ghoulish visions, all realized by Obayashi via a series of mattes, animation, and collage effects. Equal parts absurd and nightmarish, HOUSE might have been beamed to Earth from some other planet. Never before available on home video in the United States, itâ€™s one of the most exciting cult discoveries in years. Infamous Japanese whatsit House is the ultimate 1970s artifact. The animated opening recalls The Rocky Horror Picture Show, while former ad man Nobuhiko Obayashi extends the anything-goes impression through freeze frames, painted backdrops, and old-timey flashbacks. He starts by introducing schoolgirls Fantasy (Kumiko Ohba) and Gorgeous (Kimiko Ikegami) to groovy H.R. Pufnstuf-style music. Then Gorgeous's widowed father presents his new bride, RyÃ´ko (Haruko Wanibuchi), who enters like Joan Crawford in a flowing white gown. Afterward, Gorgeous invites Fantasy, Melody, Kung Fu, Prof, Sweet, and Mac to her aunt's house for the summer. Little does she know that RyÃ´ko plans to crash the party. While they gather a...
A lifetime of police work has left Kurt Wallander with the look of a man who's seen too much. In a spare and compelling performance, Krister Henriksson does justice to the detective beloved by fans of the crime novels by Henning Mankell. The series depicts a police team in the city of Ystad, Sweden, confronting the darkness of the human heart. Wallander works with his daughter Linda, who shares his instinct for crime solving and Stefan Lindman, a young detective eager to prove himself.

Following the collapse of his clan, an unemployed samurai (Ran's Tatsuya Nakadai) arrives at the manor of Lord Iyi, begging to commit ritual suicide on his property. Iyi's clansmen, believing the desperate ronin is merely angling for a new position, try to force him to eviscerate himselfâ€” but they have underestimated his beliefs and his personal brand of honor. Winner of the 1963 Cannes Film Festival's Special Jury Prize, Harakiri, directed by Masaki Kobayashi (The Human Condition) is a fierce evocation of individual agency in the face of a corrupt and hypocritical system.
After more than a decade of sober political dramas and social-minded period pieces, the great Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi (The Human Condition) shifted gears dramatically for this rapturously stylized quartet of ghost stories. Featuring colorfully surreal sets and luminous cinematography, these haunting tales of demonic comeuppance and spiritual trials, adapted from writer Lafcadio Hearnâ€™s collections of Japanese folklore, are existentially frightening and meticulously crafted. This version of Kwaidan is the original three-hour cut, never before released in the United States. BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES â€¢ New 2K digital restoration of director Masaki Kobayashiâ€™s original cut, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack â€¢ Audio commentary by film historian Stephen Prince â€¢ Interview from 1993 with Kobayashi, conducted by filmmaker Masahiro Shinoda â€¢ New interview with assistant director Kiyoshi Ogasawara â€¢ New piece about author Lafcadio Hearn, on whose versions of Japanese folk tales Kwaidan is based â€¢ Trailers â€¢ New English subtitle translation â€¢ PLUS: An essay by critic Geoffrey Oâ€™Brien
The 15th-century Russian icon painter renounces his art after taking part in a peasant uprising. Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. At last, the complete version of Andrei Tarkovski's 1966 masterpiece about the great 15th century Russian icon painter (a film suppressed by the Soviet Union and unseen until 1971) is available. It's a complex and demanding narrative about the responsibility of the artist to participate in history rather than documenting it from a safe distance. A landmark in Russian cinema, Andrei Rublev is a beautifully lyrical black-and-white film about harmony and soulful expression. As the late filmmaker says in a supplementary interview, each generation must experience life for itself; it cannot simply absorb what has preceded it. In fact, a whole host of supplements accompanies the film in this Criterion Collection release. Stick with it; it's worth the effort. --Bill Desowitz

Adapting Ed McBainâ€™s detective novel "Kingâ€™s Ransom", Kurosawa moves effortlessly from compelling race-against-time thriller to exacting social commentary, creating a diabolical treatise on class and contemporary Japanese society.

(In Danish with English Subtitles) In this second season of Denmark's blockbuster political drama, BORGEN, we continue to follow the country's first female Prime Minister, Birgitte Nyborg, her cynical spin doctor, Kasper Juul, the ambitious journalist, Katrine FÃ¸nsmark and her more seasoned colleague, Hanne Holm. Birgitte has been Denmark's Prime Minister for two years - years that have taken their toll on her private life. She must now balance her role as PM with that of divorced single mother of two. Politically, she has succeeded in earning the respect of her allies and enemies in Parliament, but tensions between parties are growing. Denmark's participation in international wars as well as certain central domestic policy issues are fracturing coalitions in parliament, and forcing Birgitte to make increasingly questionable compromises. The mounting pressure causes her to doubt whether she can maintain both her position and her integrity. A castle (borgen) imprisons and excludes; it also protects. Borgen is the story of a castle that houses parliament, a self-contained universe with its own laws and unwritten rules.
IN DANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES Borgen is a modern Danish political drama about the personal costs of the struggle for power for the people at the center of the political world and the media. In this third and final season of Borgen, Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is a very different person than the confident prime minister who spoke at the lectern in parliament. She is no longer prime minister. It has been two and a half years since she called an election in which she failed to win the required number of seats to maintain the existing government. She has since left politics and is now a highly-paid speaker in the business world. During a talk she is holding for yet another group of Danish businesspeople, it all suddenly becomes too much for her. She can no longer brush off the recurring question of what she would do if she were Prime Minister.
