Zen: Vendetta / Cabal / Ratking

Meditate on this: 'Zen' makes for excellent viewing.


Television series

Rod Lott
BBC's procedural mystery "Zen" is so good, it stands right alongside the superlative "Sherlock" and "Luther" in my book. Based on Michael Dibdin's series of 11 novels of Italy's antiheroic Detective Aurelio Zen, the show's first season is comprised of three 90-minute episodes, each at a quality equal to or above most feature films.

Bangkok by way of Roma

Traditional Thai and Italian specialties intermingle in one restaurant.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Thailand and Italy are more than 5,000 miles apart, but Jana’s Restaurant brings the cuisines of both countries together in one room.

Torso

Hungry for giallo? Take a stab at this one.


Horror

Rod Lott
So good are its recent Dario Argento reissues in high-definition that I'd been waiting patiently for Blue Underground's Blu-ray release of "Torso," a 1973 giallo from director Sergio Martino ("The Mountain of the Cannibal God"). Not only did it not disappoint, but it surpassed my expectations.

Django, Kill! (If You Live Shoot!)

Viewer, watch!


Western

Rod Lott
Is there a title more intriguing yet baffling than the punctuation-heavy Django, Kill! (If You Live Shoot!)? Don't answer that. The important thing is just that the 1967 Italian cult favorite now has been unleashed uncensored on Blu-ray from Blue Underground.

Western

Rod Lott
Anyone who believes public-domain DVD box sets don't contain any good movies, take note: You're dead wrong.

Zorro

Z marks the spot, occasionally.


Action

Rod Lott
It wasn't too long ago you could find crap copies of 1975's Zorro in the dollar-store DVD bins. For a Blu-ray release, Somerville House has cleaned it all up digitally, improving everything but how dull it sometimes is.
