CineSavant Column

Tuesday September 27, 2022



DVD Classics Corner on the Air’s Dick Dinman has a new podcast show out. Author & film noir authority Alan K. Rode joins Dick to discuss Kino’s twin 4K Ultra-HD releases of Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing & Paths of Glory.

The pair also take a peek at recent releases of The Strange Love of Martha Ivers and The Turning Point.



When deadlines loom and the CineSavant Column is empty, we can always count on advisor Gary Teetzel … he’ll come up with something good no matter how insubstantial.

This is by no means a recommendation but I’m amused just knowing that a book exists for Joseph Green’s genuine cult film . . . as part of an ‘It Came from Hollywood’ book series, Robert Freese has penned a novelization of The Brain that Wouldn’t Die, with the sub-heading ’60th Anniversary Novelization.’

Gary warns us not to ask why. There are some things man was not meant to know:

“Like all things, literature has its ultimate, and this is it.”
