Of the list I've seen Alléluia, Eddie The Sleepwalking Cannibal, The Silence, and Penance. I thought all were great, Eddie being the weakest of the bunch, mostly due to it being sort of just goofy fun.

Maison Close: Season Two Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



NEWS/TRAILER
https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=18021

Quote:
Chicago-based independent distributors Music Box Films have announced that they will release on Blu-ray Maison Close: Season Two. The two-disc set will be available for purchase on January 12, 2016.

Set in a lavish brothel in 19th Century Paris, the wildly popular French erotic drama series Maison Close: Season Two returns to further weave its sexy tales of the women of "The Paradise," an infamous bordello that caters to aristocratic and bourgeois clientele known for its strange and refined practices during a time of legalized prostitution.

Created by Jacques Ouaniche, Maison Clsoe focuses on a trio of The Paradise's most provocative women: Rose (Jemima West), a young woman, newly arrived in Paris in search of her mother, who was tricked into service at the brothel; Véra (Anne Charrier), a courtesan in her mid-thirties nearing the end of her career, hoping a wealthy customer will pay her debt and free her from servitude; and Hortense (Valerie Karsenti), the owner of The Paradise who must do whatever she can to retain her girls, keep the brothel open and steer clear of the forces intent on shutting her business down. The new season of the critically acclaimed drama picks up at The Paradise where Season One left off, as a royalist chief commander rises to power and reinstates a city-wide Moral Order which threatens the brothel's very existence.

Maison Close: Season Two has been praised as much for its historical accuracy and political astuteness as its bold eroticism, with Alessandra Stanley of The New York Timeslauding it as "Baudelaire meets The Playboy Channel."

"For more than three years I have been thinking of this series whose heroine is a young girl, trapped, forced to prostitute herself in a luxury brothel at the end of the nineteenth century at the beginning of the Third Republic," says Maison Close creator Ouaniche of the series' origins. "I wanted to uncover the daily lives of these sex workers, most of all of the women, and their privileged relationships with powerful men in a time period not so remote from ours."

The release of the Maison Close series marks Music Box Films' latest entry in the company's growing international television catalog, which includes such recent releases as Sweden's Wallander, Germany's Generation War France's The Returned and Japan's Penance by Kiyoshi Kurosawa.

Official Synopsis: Paris,1871: In a high-end brothel called The Paradise, three women are each attempting to escape their own personal prisons of secrets, debt and sex. Rose (JemimaWest) is a young woman newly arrived in Paris in search of her mother, who is tricked into service at The Paradise. Véra (Anne Charrier) is a courtesan in her mid-thirties who knows that the end of her career is upon her and holds out hope that a wealthy customer will pay her debt and free her from servitude. And then there's Paradise owner Hortense (Valerie Karsenti), who must do whatever she can to retain her girls and keep the brothel open, all the while resisting the advances of a dangerous debt collector from out of town.

As Maison Close: Season Two opens, times are tough at The Paradise. The rise to power of a royalist chief commissioner marks the return of a Moral Order. In order to survive under the demands of the new commissioner, Rose, Véra and Hortense form an alliance with a flamboyant gangster, who seizes the opportunity to set up his headquarters at the brothel. Exciting, beautiful and sexier than ever, the women of the Paradise will do everything they can to hold onto their freedom.

We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! Heading to Blu-ray

We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



NEWS
https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=18256

Quote:
Music Box Films have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray We Are Twisted F***ing Sister!. The release will be available for purchase on February 23.

The setting is mid-1970s New York City: five rockers decked in platform boots and dramatic make-up embarked on a heavy metal journey. Little did they know the impact they would make, and that, forty years later, they would still be renowned for their songs, one-of-a-kind live shows, and take-no-prisoners attitude.

We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! – a new 134-minute documentary film by Andrew Horn capturing that expedition from bar band to international stardom – will be presented in theaters via Music Box Films in February 2016. The first ever documentary of the band that defined an early MTV with their no-holds-barred music videos opens in New York and Los Angeles on February 19 with a one-night-only event at Chicago's Music Box Theatre on February 22. On February 23, the film will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD, and digital formats, with an included 2 hours of bonus material and director commentary.

Charging out of the gate with a lethal combination of grit and glitter, Twisted Sister (Jay Jay French, Dee Snider, Eddie Ojeda, Mark "The Animal" Mendoza, and the late A.J. Pero) established themselves as one of the staple acts of Glam Rock and Heavy Metal with anthems "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock." However, "the band that killed disco" was no overnight success.

Director Andrew Horn, who is known for his films East Side Story (named one of the 10 best films of the year by Time Magazine), The Nomi Song, Doomed Love, and The Big Blue, said of the film:

"I realized as I was working on the film, that it was really very much a story of how a band becomes a band. They are truly unique in that their overnight success actually took 10 years, so you really get to experience everything Twisted Sister went through to do it. I have to say, I don't think I've ever experienced any group of musicians as ferocious...or as funny."

We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! puts the fan in the trenches with the band from their early, hungry days in New York City onward through their legendary career. Recounted directly from the band themselves, their managers, and biggest fans, We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! is the mesmerizing, never-before-told story of the ten grueling years leading up to the band's break out success.

Are you ready to really get to know Twisted F***ing Sister?

Francofonia Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



Quote:
Chicago-based distributors Music Box Films will release on Blu-ray acclaimed Russian director Aleksandr Sokurov's new film Francofonia (2015), starring Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Benjamin Utzerath, Vincent Nemeth, and Johanna Korthals Altes. The release will be available for purchase on June 28.

Set against the backdrop of the Louvre Museum's history and artworks, master director Alexander Sokurov (Russian Ark ) applies his uniquely personal vision onto staged re-enactments and archives for this fascinating portrait of real-life characters Jacques Jaujard and Count Franziskus Wolff-Metternich and their compulsory collaboration at the Louvre Museum under the Nazi Occupation. These two remarkable men - enemies then collaborators - share an alliance which would become the driving force behind the preservation of museum treasures. In its exploration of the Louvre Museum as a living example of civilization, Francofonia is a stunning and urgently relevant meditation on the essential relationship between art, culture, and history.

Throughout his vast filmography -- documentary, fiction and others somewhere in between -- Alexander Sokurov has demonstrated that a museum is much more than a place to preserve art. Museums are the veritable DNA of a civilization, the living organ of the city where the heart of a nation beats. With Francofonia, he explores a historical chapter that we might know, but whose description does not take into account all the lines that run through it.

Sokurov's body of work includes his "Men of Power" tetralogy (Faust, The Sun [Emperor Hirohito], Taurus [Vladimir Lenin] and Moloch [Adolph Hitler]), Russian Ark (set entirely in St Petersburg's Hermitage Museum), Mother and Son and Father and Son.

The Innocents Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



NEWS
https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=19135

Quote:
Chicago-based label Music Box Films has revealed that it plans to release on Blu-ray dierctor Anne Fontaine's latest film The Innocents (2016), starring Lou de Laâge, Agata Buzek, Agata Kulesza, Vincent Macaigne, and Joanna Kulig. The release will be available for purchase on September 27.

The Innocents will open in select theaters across the United States on July 1.

Official synopsis: Warsaw, December 1945: the second World War is finally over and Mathilde is treating the last of the French survivors of the German camps. When a panicked Benedictine nun appears at the clinic one night begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent, what she finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth and several more in advanced stages of pregnancy. A non-believer, Mathilde enters the sisters' fiercely private world, dictated by the rituals of their order and the strict Rev. Mother (Agata Kulesza, Ida). Fearing the shame of exposure, the hostility of the new anti-Catholic Communist government, and facing an unprecedented crisis of faith, the nuns increasingly turn to Mathilde as their belief and traditions clash with harsh realities.

A Man Called Ove Blu-ray PRE-ORDER



STREET DATE: DECEMBER 27.

Quote:
Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman’s international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife’s grave, Ove has given up on life. Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in and earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared.

One of Sweden's biggest locally-produced box office hits ever, director Hannes Holm finds the beating heart of his source material and Swedish star Rolf Lassgård, whose performance won him the Best Actor award at the 2016 Seattle Int’l Film Festival, affectingly embodies the lovable curmudgeon Ove.
