  • Disc 1. 11 x 14 (1977, 77 minutes). One way boogie woogie 2012 (2012, 90 minutes)
  • Disc 2. One way boogie woogie / 27 years later (1978/2005, 116 minutes)
The mid-1970s saw James Benning's first feature films attract the attention of critics, establishing him as a representative of the "New Narrative Movement." In films like 11 x 14 and One Way Boogie Woogie, he combines the structural analysis of image, sound and narrative with autobiographical traces, as well as with an almost classical interest in composition, color, light and landscape. This 2-disc set features 11 x 14 (1977), one of the central U.S. avant-garde films of the 1970s, in a restored version. Also included is Benning's recurring view of his hometown Milwaukee at three different points in time: One Way Boogie Woogie (1978), 27 Years Later (2005) and One Way Boogie Woogie 2012. Documents of change and transience.
"One Way Boogie Woogie: 60 static 60-second shots, 60 tableaux of places of work and industry: factories, auto repair shops, smokestacks, streets, traffic and, time and time again, street signs. In 1977, James Benning documented the vernacular urban landscape of his birthplace Milwaukee on 16mm film stock in a series of precisely framed, color-saturated and aesthetically impressive shots. In 2004, Benning returned to record the changes of the last 27 years in a remake of his own film. He filmed at the same locations, restaging every single shot sometimes identically, sometimes with slight variations. Some buildings have disappeared, others are new. His actors have grown older, some had passed away in the meantime. The American flag still waves in the wind, this time faded and worn out. One Way Boogie Woogie became the double-length feature One Way Boogie Woogie / 27 Years Later the older film is followed by the new. A further 8 years later, Benning went back to make One Way Boogie Woogie 2012. The typical composition and aesthetic criteria of the previous films remain unchanged in the film's 18 shots. However, what increases is the duration: each shot is 5 minutes long, as the spectator is more intensely urged to take notice of both image and sound, to complement them with memories and prior knowledge and read them as a commentary onthe organization of urban space and developments in contemporary America"--Barbara Pichler.

"No filmmaker captures the grandeur and energy of New York like Martin Scorsese. With this sumptuous romance, he meticulously adapted the work of another great New York artist, Edith Wharton, bringing to life her tragic novel set in the cloistered world of Gilded Age Manhattan. The Age of Innocence tells the story of Newland Archer(Daniel Day-Lewis), whoses engagement to an innocent socialite (Winona Ryder) binds him to the codes and rituals of his upbringing. But when her cousin (Michelle Pfeiffer) arrives in town on a wave of scandal after separating from her husband, she ignites passions in Newland he never knew existed. Swelling with exquisite period detail, this film is an alternately heartbreaking and satirical look at the brutality of old-world America.

"IIn this Oscar-winning farce, Cary Grant (in the role that first defined the Cary Grant persona) and Irene Dunne exude charm, cunning, and artless affection as an urbane couple who, fed up with each other's infidelities, resolve to file for divorce. But try as they might to move on, the mischievous Jerry can't help meddling in Lucy's ill-matched engagement to a corn-fed Oklahoma businessman (Ralph Bellamy), and a mortified Lucy begins to realize that she may be saying goodbye to the only dance partner capable of following her lead. Directed by the versatile Leo McCarey, a master of improvisation and slapstick as well as a keen and sympathetic observer of human folly, The Awful Truth is a warm but unsparing comedy about two people whose flaws only make them more irresistable"--Container.
