    • I'm guessing that 'Confessions' is an R (or X) rated cut of Confessions of a Woman?

        It's the original 'X' cut.

        There's no such thing as 'CONFESSIONS OF A WOMAN.'
        It's just CONFESSIONS. The 'of a woman' bit was added for video.

                • Great interview! Can't wait for MASSAGE PARLOR MURDERS! It's gonna be one of THE cult film releases of 2013, I think. Also really excited about THE TELEPHONE BOOK. I own a bootleg, and it's gonna be great to finally get an official release. The movie really deserves it.

                  • Robin, if you feel up to it, sell me on THE TELEPHONE BOOK.

                    • The thing I really like about it is that it's gorgeously shot (in black and white, which wasn't very common for 1971) and it is a really nice mix of Warhol-esque arthouse and sexploitation-style grindhouse. It's humorous, and quirky as shit -- but not pretentious or boring. Sure, it's low budget, but its absurdity really spoke to me.

                      I probably shouldn't say this for fear of hyping it up too much, but I feel that it's a shame that this movie is not more of a beloved cult-classic, because it deserves to be as well known as a PUTNEY SWOPE or a HAROLD AND MAUDE. Lets hope this release allows it to be rediscovered.

                      • I completely agree with Robin.
                        TTB is indeed a cult classic waiting to happen. When I first saw it, nearly a decade ago, I immediately fell in love. I've never seen a film which better combines different genre film aesthetics. It's part sexploitation, part weirdo-underground film, part art/psychedelic film., part slapstick comedy, etc.
                        And the photography; stark, contrasty and absolutely beautiful black and white (except for an amazing color animated sequence), really adds to the film's uniqueness.

                        Merv Bloch is really excited to get the film released on DVD and Blu ray for the first time (the German DVD from a few years back, although authorized, was sourced from a SD transfer in the wrong aspect ratio). Although the image won't be blemish free, I mist say that the film looks pretty amazing.

                              • Would anybody like to "sell" me on buying DEATH BY INVITATION? I say this, because I previously bought a copy of it from Something Weird Video back in the nineties. Do I need another copy of it?
