Where did you get the idea Alice, Sweet Alice is obviously region free?

Edit: Never mind...I just checked 88 Films website. My bad!

Cheers. Sorry for the late reply, but the computer and internet connection developed a serious case of gremlins in the gubbins this week, so my access has been wildly intermittent.

I'm a poacher turner gamekeeper turned poacher again. I used to edit a movie magazine back in the days when laserdisc and VHS were the bleeding edge of home entertainment technology as well as the odd bit of freelancing before working in home video, but since the market contracted and the age of 'user generated content' (translation: unpaid stuff readers send in) became all the rage with the papers I used to occasionally contribute to, nobody wants to pay to read about old movies these days and I've never worked out how to make a blog viable (I'm basically a print and analog guy), so it's mostly just to keep my hand in these days. I've been looking into trying to find a financially viable formula for a revived print + digital specialist movie magazine now that the number of avenues for 'serious' writing about film are contracting outside of blogs, but the numbers aren't very promising.

How about a Patreon thing? I know I'd want to support your writing.

Itís a damn shame looks like it would take a massive effort to make a living writing about film in the current climate. Iíd say there is space for a couple of big reviewers on blogs/blogs but even with a media background it would take years to make money. Iím still looking at reviews from the same people whoís reviews I read 20 years ago. If only media in general knew the interest that sill exists for film not just next weeks blockbuster.

I genuinely feel your pain though I worked as a manger for 15 years in HMV (which is now closed in Ireland) spending most of time there looking after Vinyl & DVD/Blu-Ray in the biggest shop in Ireland (third biggest in the company) but with high rents and low sales it just wasnít viable anymore. I would never have imagined in the mid 2000s that this could ever happened but thatís the reality.

But back to you, do you use Letterboxd? Itís a great community of film fans /reviewers, I donít think thereís any money to be made but hey.

Well either way you know you have a few fans on here who have really appreciated your reviews please keep it up and thanks again.

So has 88 films stopped announcing Italian films? Has that line "run it's course" so to speak?

A few weeks back on Facebook someone asked them the same question and they replied that there are more Italian titles in the works. I'm hoping for L'Occhio Selvaggio (having just bit the bullet and bought the 2015 region 1 DVD a better UK release is inevitable) and maybe one or two of the better early to mid period mondos, though I doubt either will happen.

Have a feeling these last few months they were more focused on establishing the Asian and Vault lines hence the lack of Italian titles.

Mondo would be great, even if I've only ever seen Addio zio Tom (which was amazing).

Otherwise both Lenzi classics Eyeball and A Quiet Place to Kill have received HD transfer on recent german releases - suggesting there's a licensor out there trying to push the rights.

Mondo Macabro also said that a company in the US has picked up the rights to Who Saw her Die? suggesting that there's a HD transfer of that floating around too which is probably being pushed in the UK market as well.

They have had a pretty good run with the Italian Collection lately. I've still to pick up the last two.

When it first kicked off I thought "Great, right up my street. I'll have the lot" I didn't think for a minute there would be 41 releases in the collection. Bloody good going.

Edit: Anyone know if Offerings comes with a slip? It is listed in the slipcase section but there is no mention of one in the product info.

Still waiting for a White Slave upgrade. Hopefully one is forthcoming before the Italian Collection line goes belly up. Or before 88 gets so deep into Korean cinema that there's no turning back . I agree it has been rather quiet on the announcement front. I wish 88 would pickup more Lakeshore titles.

Goodbye Uncle Tom is a jaw dropper. A genuine rare as hens teeth "when you think you've seen everything" type films. In many ways atypical of the genre yet possibly the greatest mondo ever made, and along with their previous collaboration Africa Addio easily Jacopetti and Prosperi's best work.

Unfortunately, even more so than it's predecessor, it's a difficult film to separate from the various issues surrounding its production. And again like Africa Addio whatever the filmmakers intentions it's a racist (though in both cases IMO not to the extent some claim) and unquestionably exploitative movie.

Though it probably could get through uncut in 2018 I doubt any distributor here in the UK has the balls of steel required to submit it to the BBFC, especially knowing how fussy folk are about cuts.
