Там, где река чернеет / Where the river runs black. 1986.
 Красивый приключенческий фильм о том, как где то в солнечной и влажной Бразилии, среди амазонских джунглей, в одной индейской деревушке миссионерствовал молодой священник, много было планов у него по христианизации аборигенов и просветительской деятельности пока не сгубила его собственная природа - влюбился как пацан в местную красавицу. Во время очередного интимного посещения своей тайной подруги его пожирает некое речное чудовище и остаётся молодая индейская красотка одна с их сыном на руках. Жили они себе спокойно в джунглях отшельниками, но цивилизация вторгается в эти края своим не лучшим боком - в этих краях находят золото и в результате пацан в возрасте четырёх лет становится сиротой, живёт 6 лет совершенно один в лесу. Затем его находят и отправляют в приют, где он постепенно входит в цивилизованное общество и вот однажды он встречает человека убившего его мать...
Where the River Runs Black is a 1986 film directed by Christopher Cain. The screenplay was written by Neal Jimenez and Peter Silverman, based on the novel Lazaro by David Kendall.
The film was entirely shot in Brazil, mostly in Belém and Rio Negro, Manaus.
Father O'Reilly, an older priest, tells the story of Father Mahoney, Eagle Woman, and their son Lazaro. It's magic realism in the Amazon. Mahoney is a radical priest who ventures upstream where the river runs black. He encounters the beautiful and enchanting Eagle Woman, who can change from a dolphin to a woman. A few years later, their child Lazaro witnesses inter-loping gold prospectors commit a brutal and traumatizing murder. He goes to the city in Father O'Reilly's care, and there he sees the murderer, who's a politician. Lazaro seeks revenge, which puts him in further danger. He runs back into the jungle, where the dolphins may be his best hope for help.
Director: Christopher Cain.
Cast: Charles Durning, Alessandro Rabelo, Ajay Naidu, Divana Brandão, Peter Horton, Castulo Guerra, Conchata Ferrell, Dana Delany, Chico Díaz, Marcelo Rabelo, Ariel Coelho, Paulo Sergio Oliveira, Mario Borges, François Thijm, Geraldo Salles.

JP. 寺山修司実験映像ワールド コンプリートBOX [1,000セット限定生産] / 邦画
20世紀の映像詩人・寺山修司が手掛けたシュールでアヴァンギャルドな映像作品集の4枚組BOX。 現存する最初の映画『檻囚』、書物を映画に翻訳し直し、「読む映像」を試みた『マルロドールの歌』ほか、全15作品を収録。
EN. Shūji Terayama (寺山 修司 Terayama Shūji, December 10, 1935 – May 4, 1983) was an avant-garde Japanese poet, dramatist, writer, film director, and photographer. Many critics view him as one of the most productive and provocative creative artists to come out of Japan. He has been cited as an influence on various Japanese filmmakers from the 1970s onward.
THE EXPERIMENTAL IMAGE WORLD OF SHUJI TERAYAMA, DVD four-volume box set. Tokyo: Daguerreo Press, Inc./Image Forum Video, 2006, color/monochrome, English subtitles, bilingual menu, audio commentaries (Japanese only) by Nobuhiro Kawanaka, Tatsuo Suzuki, Sakumi Hagiwara and Henriku Morisaki, 346 min.
In this edition presents the films Terayama Shūji 1962-1977.
Shuji Terayama (1935-1983), one of Japan's most famous poets and playwrights, first wanted to become a photographer. While still a child he hung around the local photo parlor so often that his mother finally told him that so much picture-taking would make him dwindle away to nothing at all.
The magical properties of the photographic image, still or moving, stayed with him all of his life. In photographs and films as well as on the stage, he created his own kingdom, one based on his own childhood. In plays such as "La Marie Vision," feature films like "Cache-Cache Pastoral" and in the shorter films here collected, he created a place where mothers kill their young and children do indeed dwindle away to nothing at all.
Their world is set in the Taisho Era, one that Terayama was not old enough to remember but here reconstructs: flapper frocks, cloche hats, windup phonographs and the Victor dog, gakusei (student) uniforms, fundoshi (Japanese loin cloths), Japanese wedding kimono, loosened obi. All of this in a chaotic clutter and yet also arranged with a certain sense of style.
Terayama has elsewhere written that it is not the camera's ability to tell the truth that is interesting, but it is its ability to lie. He can make us truly believe in this claustrophobic, closed, dead world, where we are forced voyeurs. This four-DVD set of almost all of his shorter films (the very first, "Catology," has been lost for years) drags us into his disturbing kingdom -- a coherent and forceful expression of an imagination, dreamlike but startlingly real.
The earliest of these short films, "The Cage" (1964-69), introduces some of the recurring images: clocks, father-figures in black capes, body-builders. "Butterfly" (1974) reflects early memories -- shadows, people walking in front of the screen. (When a boy, Terayama used to sleep under the screen of a local movie theater and awake to gigantic images above him, and the shadows of viewers in front of the projector.)
In "Laura" (1974), movie memories turn self-referential. Two strippers on the screen start talking back to the audience: "Hey, you in the front row, stop it. Oh, we know what kind of people come to see experimental films!" The "Movie Guide for Young People" uses three screens and offers various transgressions -- including one actor who relieves himself on us (i.e. the camera lens).
"Labyrinth" (1975) takes us outside: two men trying to transport an entire doorway, complete with door. The door appears again in "Smallpox Story," which also features nails being driven into skulls. "Der Prozess," the last of the 1975 films, is an extended (34 min.) love scene that could probably not be shown in theaters even now.
"Father" is a portrait of his missing parent (killed in the Pacific War), and "The Eraser" (both 1977 films) includes a number of Terayama-like fetishes -- old photos erased or torn up, or stitched together. "Isumboshi" features the love-life of a dwarf, and "Shadow Film" is just that, shadows on the screen.
There are several more of these short films and there are two versions of the infamous "Emperor Tomato Ketchup" (1970). This film is about children in revolt. Like the kids in Jean Vigo's "Zero de Conduit," they take over and (in the words of Amos Vogel in "Film as a Subversive Art") "condemn their parents to death for depriving them of self-expression and sexual freedom." There is a lot of nudity and much simulated sex -- though killing a chicken on camera is perhaps the most distressful of the scenes.
The film has been often banned and the 75-minute original (here included) exists only as single 16-mm print. Terayama made a shortened version (27 min., here included) and there is an even shorter extract, the 12-min. "Jan-Ken-Po War" also included in this set.
Finally there is a compilation film, "Catalogue of Memory" (1977) by Michi Tanaka, a close associate of Terayama's, one in which Terayama himself appears.
The package is quite foreigner-friendly. The menu is bilingual, and English subtitles are provided whenever the text is on the sound track. When the text is a part of the image, however, as in "Les Chants de Maldoror," there is no translation. You can also buy these DVDs singly.
That the collection is sometimes upsetting is to be expected -- it was intended to be. Terayama is not only the sleeping child, he is also the sinister magician and through the magic of film he reigns over his embattled kingdom.
It is embattled because it is a vision of childhood with all the terror and cruelty retained, and because mother was right: If you take too many pictures you dwindle away. This dwindling process is called maturity. When you have entirely evaporated you are an adult.

Мальчик гейша / The Geisha Boy. 1958.

Мальчик гейша / The Geisha Boy. 1958.
 Старая американская комедия с грустным подтекстом, содержание из сети: «Великий Вули» (Джерри Льюис) - неудачливый американский фокусник, желая поправить свое финансовое положение, отправляется на гастроли, организованные для военнослужащих в Японии. По прибытии он становится виновником нескольких досадных происшествий, порвал платье актрисе Лоле Ливингстон, сбил ее на лестнице и закатал в ковровую дорожку. Сирота Мицуо Ватанабе (Роберт Хирано), при виде этого зрелища засмеялся впервые после смерти своих родителей. Вместе с тетей Кими Сикита Мицуо приходит к Вули, чтобы поблагодарить и одновременно просит его стать почетным отцом. Все они становятся близкими друзьями. В дальнейшем Вули снова переживает неприятные приключения и едва не лишается права на выступления. Гастролировать приходится в Корее. Тем временем Вули начинает тяготиться дружбой с мальчиком и тайно возвращается в Штаты. Но приехал он туда не один. Вули приходится делать выбор…
Хоть и легкомысленная комедия, этот фильм дает представление об отношении американцев к некоторым важным вопросам того времени: отношения США с бывшим врагом, способность страны стать мировым лидером и к внутренним запутанным социальным взаимоотношениям, а также показывает как они сумели решить их.

The Geisha Boy is a 1958 American comedy film starring Jerry Lewis, distributed by Paramount Pictures. Filmed from June 16 to August 7, 1958, it had its first screening in New York City on December 19, 1958. This film marked the film debut of Suzanne Pleshette.
Gilbert "The Great" Wooley (Jerry Lewis) is a down-on-his-luck magician who has been invited to entertain GIs in Japan. However, even before his flight from Los Angeles has taken off the ground, he unwittingly -- and with some participation of his pet, friend and co-star in the act, Harry the rabbit -- incurs the wrath of the show's headliner, actress Lola Livingston (Marie McDonald), with a series of unfortunate accidents. Upon their arrival, as he tries to apologize to Lola, he causes her more embarrassment by tearing up her dress, knocking her down the gangway, and rolling her up in the red carpet to cover up her lack of proper attire.
An orphan, Mitsuo Watanabe (Robert Hirano), who attends the reception in the company of his aunt Kimi Sikita (Nobu McCarthy), an interpreter for the United Service Organizations, or USO, witnesses the spectacle and laughs for the first time since his parents died. When Kimi brings the boy to Gilbert to thank him, he and the boy become close. This, however, irritates the aunt's boyfriend Ichiyama (Ryuzo Demura), a Japanese baseball player; and his subsequent chase of Wooley, which culminates with Ichiyama's fall into a bathhouse pool that floods the street outside, almost motivates the furious USO commander Major Ridgley (Barton MacLane) to revoke Wooley's entertainment-service status. Wooley's USO liaison Sergeant Pearson (Suzanne Pleshette), who has fallen for him, is able to reverse that decision - though it is under the condition that Wooley perform for the American troops at the Korean frontlines. However, she becomes jealous of Gilbert's growing relationship with Kimi.
In time, Gilbert, Mitsuo, and Mitsuo's family become inseparable, but Wooley's failure as a troop entertainer makes Ridgley remand him back to the United States. Not wanting to disappoint Mitsuo by letting him find out that he has been a total flop, Gilbert tries to sneak away when it is time for him to return. Mitsuo follows him, and Gilbert is forced to pretend that he no longer cares for the boy, which makes him cry. However, Mitsuo still follows him to America by stowing away on the plane. Once in America, they are reunited, but Gilbert is accused of kidnapping Mitsuo, who is then returned to Japan. Wooley follows in the same way that Mitsuo did, but is "smarter" by hiding in a specially marked trunk. However, when the airliner lands, he cannot get out of the trunk, and tha Sikitas have to rescue him from it. Wooley decides to stay and become a successful performer of magic in Japan.
The film ends with Harry the rabbit giving birth to a litter in mid-performance, as Gilbert hollers in shock and disbelief, "Hey, you're not a Harry; you're a Harriet!".

Девочка-модель / Girl Model. 2011.
 Относительно свежий документальный фильм о модельном бизнесе, о том как ищут юных моделей на просторах Сибири, на местных региональных конкурсах красоты, о механизме "поставок" девушек в Японию и США. В качестве примера взята наша начинающая модель, 13-летняя Надя, живущая в обычной сибирской семье с финансовыми проблемами и резко негативным отношениям ко всей этой модельной суете. Однако стараниями Эшли она получает свой шанс: сначала поездка в Японию, затем Штаты - что ждёт Надю на этом непростом и извилистом пути модели..?
A documentary on the modeling industry's 'supply chain' between Siberia, Japan, and the U.S., told through the experiences of the scouts, agencies, and a 13-year-old model.
GIRL MODEL follows two protagonists involved in this industry: Ashley, a deeply ambivalent model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces to send to the Japanese market, and one of her discoveries, Nadya, a thirteen year-old plucked from the Siberian countryside and dropped into the center of Tokyo with promises of a profitable career. After Ashley’s initial discovery of Nadya, the two rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound. As Nadya’s optimism about rescuing her family from their financial difficulties grows, her dreams contrast against Ashley’s more jaded outlook about the industry’s corrosive influence.

Снимайте только меня / Put the camera on me. 2003.
Этот документальный фильм представляет собой снятый четырьмя мальчишками в детстве, в начале 1980-х годов, на домашнюю камеру кинорассказ об их детстве, а теперь показываемый и комментируемый ими самими, их родителями и друзьями. Тогда им было лет по 10-13, и они наслаждались жизнью вовсю - играли, смеялись, бегали по пояс голые, и конечно задавались вопросами о своей сексуальности. В общем, для всех, кому интересны мальчишки, их мысли, желания, кто хочет вспомнить себя таким, каким он был в том возрасте...
1. Before he went on to direct Jawbreaker Sparkler Darren Stein grew up making videos. Along with his friend 'Adam Shell' and the other neighborhood kids these young film makers touched on such adult subjects as jealousy, cruelty, and sexuality.
2. The fact that I did not have Internet tonight was more of a blessing than a curse as I get to dig some of the movies that were laying around my external hard drive . Picked an excellent one – it is called “Put the camera on me” and it is a documentary. A documentary – au that must be boring – but no – because that was not an ordinary documentary, but rather fun and very arty made mixture of short movies shoot by Darren Stain.
When he was little boy his dad brought home a camera and Darren being very artistic and imaginative soon learned how to use it and was obsessed with the idea of making movies – regular one and crazy one starring himself and his friends . About 20 years later Daren combined these movies and together with his original stars – created the movie I just watched.
The best part of this movie was that while watching it I unconsciously started to remember similar situations that have happen to me few years ago– you know playing out with yours friends, having a hell a lot of fun, making cool tricks …etc– so the movie of Daren through not complicated or charged with great ideas or thoughts was quite an experience.
It gave me some ideas – like writing down my memories – making a script and getting few friends to play in it – oh I know that that is not probably going to happen – but the idea is cool anyway – imagining how it will be – I guess I will be able to do the first part and if I do you will be able to see few things at my blog.
But back to the movie – if you can get a hold on it see it – you won`t regret it. I remember talking with a friend about it. He said that the movie was shoot in such a way that it captured the time of 80`s and watching it is warming and cool experience – like flipping the pages of your own yearbook.

 Документальный шестисерийный фильм о том, как сбываются мечты: 6 простых английских семей отправляются в путешествие по миру, каждая по своему персональному маршруту: Австралия, Африка, Южная Америка, Индонезия и так далее. У каждого семейства свой способ передвижения: яхта, автомобиль, самолёт, и свой бюджет. Эти путешествия призваны показать как сильно отличается жизнь в разных уголках нашей планеты, как многообразен мир на планете Земля.

Более подробно о содержании и участниках каждой серии расписано ниже на английском, кому интересно переводите сами)). Качество видео не слишком хорошее, позже будет, возможно, получше.
Ordinary British families up sticks and travel the globe in search of life-changing experiences.
Six ordinary British families achieve what many of us dream of, uprooting to travel the globe in search of life-changing experiences.
This observational series captures their travels on camera as they swap the day-to-day grind and conventional routines for treks and adventures in exotic and remote corners of the world.
Their itineraries are as varied as their budgets, but each parent is equally determined to show their children a way of life far removed from their own, without the usual comforts and luxuries.
But what happens when a road trip along the length of Africa results in a car crash involving young children, miles away from medical aid and family support? Or when a daring sea expedition in search of a Pacific island paradise ends in life-threatening food poisoning?

Анита / Анита: Шведская нимфетка / Anita / Anita: Swedish Nymphet. 1973. DVD.
 Красавица Кристина Линдберг в классике шведского эротического кино про 16-летнюю девушку Аниту, нимфоманку в поисках любви. Из-за своих психологических проблем, вызванных этим недугом, она очень неуравновешенна и не уверена в себе. Анита ведёт распутный образ жизни, её сексуальные связи беспорядочны и многочисленны, но появляется студент Эрик, который пытается помочь ей справиться с собой через познание "настоящего оргазма".
Anita: Swedish Nymphet is a 1973 erotic drama film directed by Torgny Wickman, starring Christina Lindberg and Stellan Skarsgård.
Anita is a girl of only 16 years, and while she has developed early physically, to a mature woman, she is psychologically completly ruthless. Her relationship the her parents and her friends is very poor and she is regarded with contempt by the people around her, even by the men who so ruthlessly use her. During her troubles she meets Erik, a young psychology student. Gently and carefully he begins to dispell her psychological blocks. In the course of this treatment she reveals to him some of the shocking espisodes of her previous experience and how an inner compulsion forces her into humiliating debauchery in dangerous environments. Erik believes he has the solution to Anita's problems: to let her move into an artist's communal experiment, of which he is already a member. The common interest of this collective is largely the performing of classical music. Anita's prosence in the collective, however, is regarded by some of the other girls as highly provocative. Anita's nymphomania is her means of protest against her parents, school, society and her own enviroment (her whole life situation). Erik holds a scientific theory that Anita will be free of her sexual fixation if she were once able to experience a true orgasm. He therefore tries to get her to see clearly, and with some insight, the breadth of her psychological situation. Against the background of the intensive battle that Anita carries om with the self-destructive drives within her, grows the depth of feeling that bind her and Erik together. She is no longer simply a "case" for him. Anita discovers that Erik is the one man whom she both wants to, and can, remain together with...

 Комсомолка, спортсменка и просто красавица Мария Изабель Лопез, бывшая "Мисс Филиппины" в главной роли в жёстком и жестоком фильме Элвуда Переса, который он снимал в первую очередь для того, что бы представить филиппинский кинематограф на Каннском кинофестивале. Бедная заштатная деревушка на берегу океана, здесь до сих пор почти первобытный образ жизни и нравы соответствующие. Бабка главной героини ещё в начале фильма точно обозначила местный уклад: люди целыми днями тяжело работают и единственная отдушина в этой жизни для них - безудержный секс. В деревню приезжает из города сестра местной училки (главной героини) и начинается бардак, все домогаются местного красавца разными способами и такое впечатление, что кроме секса здесь никого и ничто не интересует вне зависимости от возраста. В итоге финал кошмарен: двух сестёр дружно насилуют всей деревней и сжигают прямо в доме живьём...
Всвязи с обилием шокирующих сцен насилия, жестокости и секса просмотр не рекомендован малолетним, слабонервным и просто глупым.
Silip (lit. To witness) is a 1985 Philippine horror sexploitation film written by Ricardo Lee and directed by Elwood Perez. The film was released outside of the Philippines as Daughters of Eve.
In the remote countryside of Ilocos, various women are sexually abused by local men. Two sisters, Tonya (Maria Isabel Lopez), a sexually repressed young woman, and Selda (Sarsi Emmanuelle), a promiscuous woman, meet Simon (Mark Joseph), the most attractive man in the village. Tonya teaches catechism to the children of the village. Selda comes home from the city with her American lover, whom she throws out shortly afterward. She's the exact opposite of Tonya, as her views on sex are more liberal and less guilt-filled. Tonya is secretly sexually attracted to Simon, but she refuses his sexual advances.
In the remote countryside of Ilongo, various women are sexually abused by local men. Two sisters, meet Simon, the most attractive man in the village.
This movie was produced during the era of the Experimental Cinema of the Philippine when some starlets in local show business were exploited to create sex-oriented movies. Marcos was still in power, and maybe this passed his approval to divert Filipinos from the worsening political and economic problems. Most of these experimental cinema allowed "pene" so don't be surprised if the there were actual "penetration" in this movie.
