The driver was identified as Spencer and his passenger was listed as Angel Martinez. Spencer tried to claim he was the only occupant of the pickup, but another GPD Officer saw Martinez walking west and then south to get away from the scene. He was soon tracked down and returned to the scene by the other Officer. Spencer claimed he was distracted by his cell phone just before driving into the median and initially claimed he had

not been drinking. He agreed to provide a breath sample on a portable breath tester and blew a 0.141. He later admitted to drinking three 16 ounce cans of Coors but said his last drink was around 6:30 pm. Neither subject admitted to receiving great bodily harm and Spencer initially agreed to a field sobriety test. Then Spencer complained of pain in his left elbow and refused the test. At t hat t i me, Spencer was placed under arrest and Officer Martin read him the New Mexico Implied Consent advisory. Spencer then agreed to submit breath samples at the Gallup Police Department, which provided samples of 0.12 and 0.11. Spencer did not go gently to the McKinley County Detention Center, but instead raised a fuss with the hospital personnel and the jail employees. Spencer also refused to sign the MVD notice of revocation which was recorded using the in-car audio/video camera system.

Brandon Wilson 09.09.17, 5:57 pm Agg. DWI (Tribal Arrest) McKinley County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Elreno Henio was working saturation patrol when he gave assistance to a possible violator of a traffic stop. Henio located the vehicle coming from the east towards him with a pedestrian, later identified as Robert Brown, Jr., who had jumped on the hood of the vehicle, then continued to walk past the vehicle in a westerly direction. Henio made a head on felony stop and saw Wilson in the driver’s seat with a passenger beside him. Wilson would admit to only two cans of alcohol an agreed to a field sobriety test but only finished the first portion before refusing to do the rest. He was then arrested and transported to MCSO where he agreed to a breath test. His two samples were duplicate 0.24 and he was then relayed to the Crownpoint Detention Center by Navajo Police Department Officer

Bitsui. The passenger, Calbert Brown, was also transported to Crownpoint for public intoxication. Robert Brown Jr. was released to family at the scene. Ray Benson Smith 09.08.17, 7:44 pm Agg. DWI, 3rd Offense McKinley County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Eric D. Jim was dispatched to Cousins Road and Oak Mesa Road in reference to a one vehicle crash with possible injuries. On arrival, Lt. Jim noticed a chevy truck in the trees at the intersection, with heavy front end damage. Volunteer Fire Department personnel were removing a highly intoxicated female from the vehicle, and Jim was informed by medical personnel that the driver of the truck was being treated in the ambulance. W h i le w a l k i n g S m it h from the ambulance to the patrol unit, Smith advised the Lieutenant that he was “a man of god,” though he didn’t specify which one. Smith did not remember what happened or even where he lived. He admitted driving to “no where” and did not know who his passenger was. Smith refused to take a field sobriety test and was transported to the MCSO

where he submitted to a breath test, the results of which were 0.26 both times. Smith was found to have a revoked driver’s license and two prior arrests for DWI. He also was unable to provide valid vehicle insurance and registration for his vehicle.

Officials, others remember Pete Domenici By Matthew Reichbach NM Political Report

W

ednesday morning, news broke that former U.S. Sen. Pete Domenici died at the age of 85. Domenici served six terms in office and was widely respected in the state and beyond. Nearly immediately, remembrances and statements from New Mexico officials and others began flowing in, lauding Domenici, both from his fellow Republicans and Democrats who respected his work. NM Political Report collected the statements throughout the day, many of which referenced his work on mental health and his support of New Mexico’s national labs. Gov. Susana Martinez called it a “sad day for all New Mexicans.” “His devotion to our state was evident throughout his lengthy career. He tirelessly advocated for a better future for all New Mexico, from our labs and military bases to infrastructure and our innovation centers. Senator Domenici was also a champion of higher education,

Former U.S. Sen. Pete Domenici died at the age of 85 on Sept. 13. pioneering the Domenici Public Policy Conference which, even today, brings national leaders in government and innovation to New Mexico to help guide future generations of policymakers,” Martinez said. “While we mourn Senator Domenici’s loss, we celebrate his legacy as a champion for New Mexico and our nation. There is no doubt generations of New Mexicans have a brighter future with more opportunity because of Senator Domenici’s tireless work. I ask all New Mexicans to join Chuck and me in extending our deepest sympathies to the Domenici family.” U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, who replaced Domenici, said he and his wife were “saddened” to hear the news of Domenici’s passage.

“Senator Domenici is a legend in New Mexico politics, and though he will be sorely missed, his impact will be felt in the state – and the nation – for generations to come,” Udall said. ” While we sat on different sides of the political aisle, I admired Pete’s dedication to the well-being of all of New Mexico. He will be remembered for his meaningful contribution on so many issues – especially fiscal responsibility and the federal budget, energy policy and New Mexico’s national labs, free trade, and his personal and heartfelt dedication to ensuring parity in the health care system for those suffering from mental illness.” U.S. Sen. Heinrich said his condolences were with Nancy Domenici and the Domenici family. “I join all New Mexicans in mourning the passing of our former Senator Pete Domenici,” Heinrich said. “Senator Domenici dedicated his entire life to the state and people he loved. His decades of service to New Mexico left a lasting impact that will continue to be felt in every corner of our state for years to come.”

U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham praised Domenici’s work on mental health, calling it “heroic,” as well as on other issues. “I can’t think of anyone who had a greater impact on New Mexico, particularly through his work on energy policy and securing funding to expand the work at our national labs,” she said. “His budget prowess gave New Mexico outsized influence, which helped shape the state’s economy, while meeting our national security needs during and beyond the Cold War.” U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce called Domenici a “titan” and a “fighter.” “Senator Dominici was a powerful voice for all New Mexicans and went above and beyond for the people and families who call the land of enchantment home,” Pearce said. “I had the great privilege of working closely with Senator Dominici over the years, and fostered a relationship with him as a friend, mentor, and leader. He didn’t hesitate to put every single New Mexican before himself and fought tirelessly to make sure opportunities for a better life were available to all.” U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján also said he was “saddened” to hear the news of Domenici’s passing and said he “fought passionately for the things he believed in and the people he represented.” “Senator Domenici was a formidable figure who left a lasting mark on our state,” Luján said. “My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. May he rest in peace.” State Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn called Domenici “a patriot and a devoted statesmen” and offered his condolences to the family. “He was a bold and fearless leader and served us and the nation with dignity, compassion, and benevolence,” Dunn said. “Sen. Domenici was also a longtime family friend and worked closely with my father, state Sen. Aubrey Dunn Sr. He was a friend of the State Land Office and offered his unwavering support on education policy and land and water issues.” “I was saddened to learn of Senator Domenici’s passing and our thoughts and prayers are with his family,” State Attorney General Hector Balderas said. “We are grateful for his decades of service to our state.” “Senator Pete Domenici dedicated his life to public service

and always represented New Mexicans with class,” Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver said. “I am sad to hear he is no longer with us, and I will be keeping his loved ones in my thoughts today.” Speaker of the House Brian Egolf said the state “lost a tremendous leader today.” “Senator Pete Domenici’s legacy of bipartisanship can be seen all over the state of New Mexico,” Egolf said. “From his focus on strengthening our national labs, to his tireless advocacy for behavioral health services, his no-nonsense, bipartisan approach always put New Mexico first. On behalf of the New Mexico House of Representatives, we express our heartfelt condolences to all of his family and friends.” House Minority Leader Nate Gentry said he was “devastated” when he heard the news and said his thoughts and prayers were with Nancy Domenici and the Domenici family. “As we reflect on Senator Domenici’s incredible legacy, we should also recall his willingness to work with Democrats and Republicans alike to improve the condition of our state and nation,” Gentry said. “Our country would be a better place if more public officials took Senator Domenici’s approach to governing. We have lost a legendary statesman today.” “The Republican Party of New Mexico offers their deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Senator Pete Domenici,” RPNM chair Ryan Cangiolosi said. “Senator Domenici’s love and dedication to our state and country was unparalleled. We will always honor the progress and success of Senator Domenici’s legacy, not only for the Republican Party of New Mexico, but also for our wonderful state. We owe him and his family a huge debt of gratitude.” “Senator Pete Domenici’s long term service to New Mexico put our state in a position of power in Washington D.C,” Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair Richard Ellenberg said. “Though he sat on the other side of the aisle, he understood the role government could play in bolstering our state’s economy and he kept New Mexico’s interests in mind. We are sad to hear of his passing and send our condolences to the Domenici family.” Visit: nmpoliticalreport. com NEWS

Gallup Film Festival diverse film lineup THERE’S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

hether you prefer featu res, documentaries, shorts, or foreign made films, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at the Gallup Film Festival Sept. 14 -16. It’s a lineup that showcases some of the best and brightest talent in the independent filmmaking industry. Thursday even i n g debuts with the long-anticipated film the “Watchman’s C a n o e .” F i l m m a ke r Berri Chase teased festival-goers with a sampling of the film she was currently shooting at the time of last year’s festival. And she’s back, post-production, with her star lineup in tow. Starring Adam Beach and Roger Willie, along with a ray of sunshine lead Kiri Goodson, it’s 1969, and the film’s protagonist Jett is a fair skinned Native American girl struggling

to fit in with her peers on the reservation. After summoning the trees to shield her from her bullies, she realizes her special connection with the surrounding nature. With the help of a tribal Watchman (Roger Willie), she embarks on a spiritual journey to discover her destiny. A n d there’s some more Native American f lair at the festival, featu r i ng the film “Dig It If You Can,” a short documentary by Kyle Bell, which explores the mind and art of Native American renaissance man, Steven Paul Judd (Choctaw/Kiowa). In keeping in step with the indigenous theme, “Inside the Labyrinth” takes movie-goers on a journey into the lands of the Tohono O’odham indigenous people, located at the border between the American State of A r izona a nd the Mexican State of Sonora. The film follows individuals from this community, who

contemplate the meaning of identity, indigenous sovereignty, immigration, borders and fear. Directed by Caroline D’hondt, the film takes viewers to the heart of a migration zone, where military presence is increasing and where walls are being erected. As the film transports viewers, it tells a story that echoes throughout the world, as states pursue policies of isolation and militarization to ensure their security. It is a journey to the center of the labyrinth. Shifting gears, for the outdoorsy t y pes, the documentary directed by Fields Cage, “ T he T r ip: Mountains & M a n h o o d ,” tells the story of Jeff Voth, who for the past 35 years has led his sons and other groups of men on an annual backpacking trip into the Colorado Rocky Mountains. “The Trip” has become a legendary, masculine benchmark. Learning life-skills,

trout fishing, extreme physical fatigue and the sharing of deep heart-felt secrets in a sometimes beautiful, sometimes terrifying alpine backdrop has etched this event indelibly into these men’s lives. They would each tell you that they have been forever changed – that they have been forged into a deeper and healthier masculine place – that they have become better men because of The Trip. On the darker side of global history, the film “ForgiveDon’t Forget” explores Japan’s surrender at t he end of World War II, and the numerous swords confiscated by American officers. In order to better understand the past and build a bridge between cultures in the present, a filmmaker attempts to return one of these surrendered swords to its original owner And on the lighter, sentimental side, in the “Road Less Traveled,” Charlotte (Lauren

A l a i n a) i s struggling to balance her songwriting ca reer a nd planning her upcoming wedding. After trying on countless wedding dresses, she knows the only one that’s right for her is her mother’s dress, which is at her grandmother’s house in Harmony, Tennessee. With her two best friends in tow, Charlotte journeys from Los Angeles back to her hometown to ask her grandmother for the dress. But once there, she runs into her ex-boyfriend and starts to wonder what life would have been life if she had never left Harmony. At this fork in the road, Charlotte will have to choose which path is right for her in “Road Less Traveled.” These are just a few of the random snapshots of off the grid, fabulous films that made this year’s cut.

IN THEATERS NOW …

‘Mother!’ A bizarre, disturbing and oddly fascinating allegory RATING: ««« OUT OF 4 RUNNING TIME: 121 MINUTES By Glenn Kay For the Sun

D

on’t say I didn’t warn you. The new and extremely eccentric drama from director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler, Requiem for a Dream) is his strangest work yet. Mother! most definitely is not a crowd-pleaser and will ultimately polarize viewers. Heck, the film earned some extreme reactions even at a local press-only screening. However, there is a lot going on under the surface of the film and it ultimately sticks in the brain long after the credits roll. On that level alone, it’s an interesting and intriguing experiment. Mother (Jennifer Lawrence) is the title character, who is never given a specific name. She lives a quiet and almost solitary existence in a green and picturesque home in the country that she has been renovating from scratch. Her husband (Javier Bardem) is a distracted writer, struggling with the creative

process and looking for inspiration. Their lives are interrupted by the strange and unexpected arrival of a Man (Ed Harris) and Woman (Michelle Pfeiffer). The husband is polite and accommodating to the guests, but the odd behavior of the visitors raises concerns, especially when they make themselves a little too comfortable in the household. To try to explain exactly what’s going on without giving too much away would be nearly impossible, as increasingly strange bizarre and surreal events befall the protagonist. Not to mention the parade of decidedly unusual visuals. There are somewhat supernatural elements at work here as the central character begins to see the house as some sort of living organism. It’s all the more disturbing for the Mother when she learns that she is expecting a child. In a subtle way, the lead performance and filmmaking techniques do an excellent job of creating a constant sense of unease. The camera exclusively stays with the Mother, often keeping her a mere foot or two away from the camera lens. She moves and the camera moves with her, spinning and following her in a dizzying manner, as well as getting snippets 207 WEST COAL GALLUP 505.863.1250 www.elmorrotheatre.com Facebook @elmorrogallup

Mother! has the “Rosemary’s Baby” vibe without the pesky Satanists and without the baby. Okay, that’s a stretch, but it’s a twister and a turner. You’ll have a stank face after you leave the theater, but it should wear off in time. Now playing. Photo Credit: Paramount Pictures of secretive conversations that add a sense of paranoia and instability. The approach doesn’t give the performer a break or anywhere to hide, but the actress is more than up to the task. After establishing a palpable sense of dread, things do go completely bonkers in the last 30 or 40 minutes. Guest after guest arrives, creating factions and causing all sorts

of conflict. This section may go on a bit too long for its own good, but it is appropriately distressing. The movie never explicitly states its message, but the themes should be obvious by the close; it’s ultimately an allegory with specific, individual moments left open to interpretations. One thing is for certain. There are plenty of sequences that linger in the mind for

fur ther consideration. A s ch a o s reig n s t h rou g hout the house, one imagines the anxiety and fears facing any future mother at the dangerous world she is about to bring a child into. Some of the failures and worst aspects of humanity are depicted, which include a couple of scenes that are difficult to watch. The act of creation is also examined, along with the joys and disappointments of the process. Ultimately, the film becomes more perceptible in its final moments as identities are clearly implied. Some of the symbolism gets a little obvious towards the close, but it’s a minor issue. As far as this reviewer is concerned, there are more positive attributes here than negative. This is a dark and disturbing movie designed to make one uncomfortable (in some cases, it will anger viewers), but it’s an exceptionally well made nightmare that demands some examination on the part of the viewers. Mother! doesn’t always work, but it’s a bold, unpredictable and visceral experience that one can’t help but admire. Visit: cinemastance.com

COMMUNITY Celebration time for Lincoln Elementary SCHOOL GETS AN ‘A’ GRADE, BREAKS GROUND ON NEW CAMPUS

Story and photos by Dee Velasco For the Sun

I

t was a momentous occasion for Lincoln Elementary as they celebrated two major milestones on Sept. 11. Lincoln Elementary received an “A” grade for exceptional educational achievement in raising test scores in just under five years. Raising the grade from a “D,” current Lincoln Elementary Principal Mary Washburn said it took a lot of work from both staff and students. Elated beyond words, Washburn says her entire staff has been working diligently for the past four years to this point and this indeed is a celebratory occasion. “I’m really proud of all of us, our staff they really worked hard for it, and we’ve been gradually increasing our grade for the past few years working towards this,” she said. Washburn says the main reason for the outstanding grade was having a high expectation of the students, to support them as they are learning and a lot of collaboration with the teachers to make the kids more successful. “It takes a lot of meeting time weekly to look at how students are achieving, discussing with the teachers where they may need some more support, and a lot of professional development in areas of math and particularly close reading which is a challenge,” she said. Washburn intends on keeping that “A” grade by looking at

For instance, aid students who are the lowest achieving and help them grow more in a year’s time. That means having the teachers understand the standards and what it looks like for the kids to accomplish that standard, and how to get the teachers to respond to it. “It’s a huge struggle, it’s a huge task to do this,” she said. The other milestone for Lincoln was the long awaited construction of a new Lincoln Elementary school. Once speeches were given, it was straight outside for the commencement of the groundbreaking of the new school. The current school has been in existence since 1955, and shows of its wear and tear and is past due for an upgrade. Having been here for 62 years, the current school will be replaced with a new campus by 2019. Plans of the new school were on the wall for all to see, and excited about getting those plans

into action is contractor Rick Murphy of Murphy Builders. “We’re just real glad to get started on this project. It’s been in the making for several years; in the planning process,” he said. “We’re finally at the stage where it’s been handed off by the architects, the finance people who actually put it all together, but we anticipate the kids will be in here school year 2019 for sure.” Staff members were sad when parts of the school outside were torn down. Some of them played here and grew up in the area. Retired Special Ed/PreSchool teacher Debi Krause has been teaching at Lincoln for the past 36 years, and says the building of a new school is bittersweet. “I never thought it would happen never thought in my entire life,” she said. A former student who started kindergarten back in 1965, Alfred Olivar says it’s going to be sad but yet exciting to see the new school.

Current student, 8-year-old Tamia Washburn, who’s been attending since kindergarten shares her sediments on getting a new school. “It’s cool, but I’m going to miss the design of the old school,” she said. Once inside everyone was invited to refreshments of cake and punch, popcorn, and snowcones as they celebrated Lincoln’s achievements.

Second grade teacher Jamey Lowrey, who recently transferred from Ramah Elementary, is excited about the grade and the new school. “I think it’s amazing, the staff is amazing. They surely deserve a new school,” she said. “I love teaching here.” One feeling for sure was the huge sense of sadness felt by those in attendance on the replacing of the old school. The hallways seemed to echo of the past – the old plumbing that hangs to the walls, the outdated colors, will be missed.

DVD/Blu-ray Roundup for Sept. 15, 2017 By Glenn Kay For the Sun

I

t’s another busy edition, jam-packed with a wide variety of new releases on Blu-ray and DVD. As always, we have all the highlights for you below. So if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

BIG NEW RELEASES! Aba c us: S m a l l Enough to Jai l - T h is documentary follows the owners of the small Abacus financial i nve s t me nt company in New York. This little firm, built by a Chinese immigrant family and serving a locals in their community, were the only institute that faced criminal charges after the devastating financial crisis of 2008. Forced to defend themselves with little assistance, the movie

argues that this company was chosen as the fall guy for corporate America. Reviews for the film were excellent. They stated that it managed to create tension out of what would normally be a dry financial trail... and that may be the only movie in history to make a viewer sympathize with a bank. Beatr iz at Dinner - A Mexican immigrant and health care practitioner is invited to a client’s dinner party, where she butts heads with another guest in the form of a ruthless corporate shark and billionaire. Reportedly, unexpected twists and turns result as the evening progresses. Notices were generally solid for this independent comedy/drama. A few thought the movie could have used more subtlety with some of its characters, but the majority called it an effective class-warfare story that raises plenty of interesting points between chuckles. It was written by Mike White and features Salma Hayek, John Lithgow, Connie Britton, Jay Duplass and Chloe Sevigny. Buena Vista Social Club: Adios - The 1999 film Buena

Vista Social Club was a documentary that introduced viewers to some extraordinarily talented musicians in Cuba. Some 18 years later, a new director and crew return to update and revisit this group of performers as they reminisce on the impact of the original film and the music that they made together. The press enjoyed the feature, although they weren’t as enthusiastic about it as they were for its Oscar-nominated predecessor. It was suggested that the film would be sweet and enjoyable to fans of the original, but that it lacked the zip and passion of the previous entry. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie - This animated feature is an adaptation of the popular children’s book series. The story chronicles a pair of school kids who pull a prank and manage to hypnotize their teacher, making him believe that he is the titular (and slow-witted) superhero. To the children’s surprise, they must help their teacher to battle a very real and sinister villain. Reaction was quite good for this family flick. A scant few

thought it didn’t have much to say, but almost all found the tale well animated, funny and full of entertaining slapstick. The voices cast includes Kevin Hart, Ed Helms, Nick Kroll, Thomas Middleditch, Jordan Peele, Kristen Schaal and Brian Posehn. Citizen Jane: Battle for the City - Artist, writer and activist Jane Jacobs is chronicled in this documentary. It shows her attempts to stop big corporations from destructive developing projects across urban communities in New York. Specifically, it details her battles with a real estate developer who threatened to raze an entire neighborhood in lower Manhattan during the 1960s. Critics once again liked this non-fiction story. They complimented the movie as an earnest, straight-forward, tense and involving piece that depicts a huge battle between citizens and corporations; one that still plays as extremely relevant in today’s world. Dead Again in Tombstone - Made for the direct-to-DVD market, this supernatural western examines the tale of

a gunslinger who is resurrected from the dead in order to pr o t e c t a n ancient and powerful relic. He discovers that a group of nasty soldiers plan to steal and use to open a gateway to Hell and decides to stop them. No one has seen this title yet and there aren’t any reviews available, so we’ll just have to hope that it brings some level of B-movie thrills and fun to viewers. Danny Trejo, Elysia Rotaru, Jake Busey, Nathaniel Arcand and Dean McDermott are featured. Fun Mom Dinne r Following on the heels of the hit comedy Bad Moms, this indie picture showcases four mothers who head out for a group dinner. After ingesting vast quantities of alcohol and narcotics, the evening takes a series of wild and unexpected turns. Notices were muted

DVD REVIEW | FROM PAGE 18 for the feature. Many were impressed by all the familiar faces in the cast and found that they earned a laugh here and there. However, they still referred to the end result as derivative, by-the-numbers, predictable... and ultimately not funny enough to recommend. It stars Toni Collette, Katie Aselton, Briget Everett, Molly Shannon, Adam Scott, Rob Huebel, Adam Levine, Paul Rust and Paul Rudd. The Hatred - Here’s another out-of-the-blue horror/thriller that is making its debut on disc. The story involves four college students who decide to visit one of their professors at a remote country house that may contain a malevolent force (who are we kidding, there’s definitely something sinister on the premises). Ultimately, the girls must fight to survive. This one has been kept under wraps and has yet to be seen by any critics, so one should be weary. The cast includes Sarah Davenpor t, Andrew Divoff, Darby Walker and also features appearances by horror vets David Naughton and Amanda Wyss. I Love You Both - This i ndependent comedy/ drama involves adult twins. Specifically, a codependent brother and sister who are still living together. When they begin dating the same man, tension begins to build and the established bond between the siblings is forced to change and evolve. This got a limited release a couple of months back, but not many reviews. The ones that have popped up were a little more positive than negative. Some thought there wasn’t enough material to sustain a feature, but more enjoyed it as an eccentric and low-key take on family relationships. It features Lucas Neff, Doug Archibald and Kristin Archibald. It Comes At Night - A tightly wound family man takes refuge with his family in the woods to try and escape an end-ofthe-world threat. However, the patriarch’s controlling behavior begins to cause just as much friction and terror for the family as what they were escaping. This little horror picture garnered a lot of attention and earned accolades from scare fans earlier in the year. A naysayer or two thought that it didn’t answer enough COMMUNITY

of the questions it raised, but many more complimented this character-based chiller as extremely well acted and psychologically disturbing. It stars Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Riley Keough and Kelvin Harrison, Jr.. T h e Mummy The famous Universal monster gets an update in this new take on the bandaged beast. A nd plent y of changes have been made. The lead is a fortune hunter who finds a lost tomb and accidentally releases a vindictive princess from beyond the grave. Cursed with similar powers to the villain, the protagonist sets out to stop her before she destroys the world. Reaction wasn’t good for this first installment in a proposed multi-verse series featuring all of the studio’s monsters. There were criticisms directed at the writing and less-than-engaging characters, with the majority complaining that it lacked the sense of fun and adventure the previous series possessed. It features Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson and Courtney B. Vance. The Music of Strangers - This documentary follows world famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma and his efforts to build and maintain a international collective of musicians. The feature introduces viewers to all of the participants and their approach to creating and collaborating in order to make great music. Journalists generally enjoyed the film. There were detractors who thought that it was too revelatory towards its subjects and could have revealed more personal details about them, but most admired the attempts at promoting world music to a broader audience and appreciated the talent on display. Slack Bay - A pair of bumbling detectives are tasked with solving a series of mysterious disappearances near a beaches on the French Channel in this foreign-language comedy. As the investigation progresses, the pair are led to the home of an obscenely wealthy and bizarre upper-class family; they may have something to do with the strange events. Response in Nor th America was all over the place for this effort,

though it had more admirers than detractors. Some didn’t enjoy the Gallic-centric humor and tired of the physical comedy, but more laughed and were charmed by the goofy onscreen shenanigans. The cast includes Fabrice Luchini, Juliette Binoche, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Cyril Rigaux and Didier Despres. Swallows and Amazons Based on the children’s book of the same name published in 1930, this British family flick tells the tale of a small group of kids on vacation who sail to a mysterious island. After landing, they decide to take it for themselves, battling rival kids over control. However, another arrival threatens all the children, who must eventually team up to stop the threat. This movie may not have gotten much press on this side of the pond, but it did receive exceptional notices. It has been described as an endearingly old-fashioned family flick that will charm most audiences. The movie stars Kelly Macdonald, Andrew Scott, Rafe Spall, Jessica Hynes and Elizabeth Berrington.

BLASTS FROM THE PAST! And that’s just the beginning. There are a ton of older features arriving on Blu-ray as well. Synapse have a couple of cult titles coming your way. The first is a double feature of the so-bad-it’s-good horror pic, The Creeping Terror (1964). This one is about an alien menace that arrives on Earth in a small town and proceeds to eat locals. The movie has been paired, appropriately enough, with The Creep Behind the Camera (2014), a feature-length documentary that details the movie’s production with wild behind-the-scenes stories. They also have an elaborate release of the horror film Phenomena (1985) from director Dario Argento (Deep Red, Suspir ia). This is a beautifully shot guilty pleasure about a lonely teenage American girl living (played by a young Jennifer Connelly) at a Swiss boarding school. She learns that she has the power to communicate with insects, and uses her skills to help a Scottish entomologist and his pet chimpanzee try to catch a deranged serial killer. Yep, that’s the plot. It’s bizarre beyond words and completely ridiculous, but slasher fans will

find it a lot of fun to watch and enjoy the impressively stylized set-pieces, as well as a few memorably graphic moments. This 2 disc release includes three cuts of the film (the 82 minute US Creepers release, the 110 minute Europea n version and an extended 116 minute edition), all presented in high definition. There’s also a lengthy documentary on Argento as well as other bonuses. Shout! F a c t or y have an H.P. Lovecraft a d a p t a tion i n the form of The Resurrected ( 1 9 9 1 ) . Directed by Dan O’Bannon (The Return of the Living Dead), this chiller didn’t get much of a theatrical release during its original run, but it has found an audience over the years thanks to home video. Many think it’s deserving of a reappraisal. Now interested parties can have their chance with the new Blu-ray. Besides a 2K transfer from the original vault elements, it comes loaded with extras like an audio commentary, interviews with cast and crew, deleted scenes and other bonuses. For anyone wanting to add a notorious, big-budget flop to their collection, Mill Creek are putting out the Bill Cosby sci-fi comedy bomb, Leonard Part 6 (1987). They also have the Cher/Dennis Quaid thriller, Suspect (1987). It arrives in a 30th Anniversar y Edition. Don’t know if there are any extras, but this is the first time either of the films have been released on Blu-ray. As always, Kino have a bunch of releases as well. The Blu-ray titles this week include Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955), Custer of the West (1967) and the cheesy disaster flick, Krakatoa, East of Java (1968). In all honesty, it’s probably most notable for its geographically challenged title (Krakatoa is actually west of Java). They also have the amusing B-movie Tobor the Great (1954), which features a big robot that befriends its inventor’s grandson and helps the boy put a stop to the nefarious efforts of some enemy spies. And that’s not all. Paramount are re-releasing some older titles on Blu-ray. There isn’t much of a general theme here, but

one can now pick up features like El Dorado (1967), Escape From Alcatraz (1979), Fun Size (2012), The Great Gatsby (1974), Hatari! (1962) and Love Story (1970). I think that Alcatraz with Clint Eastwood and Patrick McGoohan might be the highlight of the group, at least for me. But that’s not all. Warner Archive have the well-regarded Richard Widmark western, The Law and Jake Wade (1958) on Blu-ray. Finally, Mondo Macabro have The Fox With a Velvet Tail (1971) hitting store shelves in high definition. This is a very early Italian Giallo effort where threatening events befall its vacationing lead characters. Haven’t seen this one, so I can’t comment on it personally.
