Australian Star Marta Dusseldorp: 'Compassion And Imagination Go Hand In Hand'
DUSSELDORP: Yeah, that's the amazing Kris McQuade, the actress who plays my mother. Yeah, it was a really tough scene because she's so - she is relentless. She just grabs you with her eyes, and she won't let go. So - and I think - yeah, that is the
Kindhearted Bea Smith (Danielle Cormack, Rake [Australia]) arrives at Wentworth Prison, arrested for the attempted murder of her abusive husband, and is thrown headfirst into an unforgiving world with rules of its own. Desperate to protect her teenage daughter (Georgia Flood, ANZAC Girls), Bea tries to stay out of trouble but gets caught up in a brutal rivalry between celebrity inmate Franky (Nicole da Silva, Rush) and former mob boss Jacs (Kris McQuade, Strictly Ballroom). When a shocking murder inflames tensions at the prison, Bea realizes that life behind bars is a constant struggle to survive. This internationally acclaimed, award-winning Australian drama boasts "sensational performances, clever writing, a dark atmosphere, and some cutting humor. It's everything a modern drama should be and more" (Metro, UK). The phenomenal ensemble cast also features Leeanna Walsman (Janet King), Kate Atkinson (Jack Irish), Robbie Magasiva (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers), and Aaron Jeffery (McLeod's Daughters).
Blu-rays of the Week. Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams (Criterion). One of Japanese master Akira Kurosawa’s most vividly visual filmscapes, this episodic 1990 fantasy doesn’t connect in any way but its stories are heartfelt—if at times diffuse—reminders of how life on this planet is both precious and filled with... The best segments, at the beginning and end, present Kurosawa’s singular cinematic vision at its most colorful: the middle segment, on Vincent van Gogh (with Martin Scorsese miscast as the painter), gloriously bursts into dazzling primary colors. Criterion’s excellent release comprises an eye-poppingly beautiful hi-def transfer. Making of “Dreams,” a 150-minute on-set documentary. Kurosawa’s Way (2011), a 50-minute feature with many filmmaking admirers discussing Kurosawa. and new interviews with assistant director Takashi Koizumi and production manager Teruyo Nogami round out this excellent set. Carrington / J’accuse (Olive Films). In Christopher Hampton’s choppy 1995 biopic Carrington , Emma Thompson embracingly embodies the title character, whose love for avowed homosexual writer Lytton Stratchey (a powerful Jonathan Pryce) was forever unrequited. Hampton gets much right, but he meanders too often to no discernable point. Abel Gance’s J’accuse , a strong but strident 1938 anti-war tract, showcases several formidable actors (Victor Francen, Jean-Max, Line Noro, Paul Amiot) who point Gance’s polemic in the right direction. Both films have nicely restored transfers. This 1971 revenge western stars a comely but wooden Raquel Welch as a frontier woman who survives a rape by three outlaws, then tracks them down after they kill her husband in cold blood. Director Burt Kennedy is unsure whether he’s making an exploitation flick or a serious drama about a woman’s degradation and redemption, ending up in a no man’s (or woman’s) land uneasily poised between two extremes. Robert Culp is gamely appealing as the hired gun who helps Hannie, while Ernest Borgnine, Strother Martin and Jack Elam are an appropriately despicable bunch of hombres. The film looks quite good on Blu-ray. extras are a director Alex Cox (Walker, Repo Man) commentary and two featurettes. Looking—Complete Series and Movie (HBO). This HBO series about a trio of gay men who are close friends explores their relationships, both platonic and intimate, over the course of two seasons and 16 episodes—along with a full-length film which reunited the friends a year later at a wedding. The five-disc Blu-ray set brings together all of the episodes and the film, all showcasing the rich, sensitive performances in the leads by Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Bartlett. The hi-def transfers are first-rate. One-Eyed Jacks (Criterion). Marlon Brando’s lone directing effort was this overambitious 1961 western in which he plays a gunslinger who, after going to prison because of his partner’s betrayal, spends the rest of the long movie getting his ultimate revenge. The always-charismatic Brando is never less than watchable, Karl Malden fine as his nemesis and Slim Pickens steals scenes as Malden’s lackey, but there’s a huge hole left by Pina Pellicer’s amateurishly stiff performance as the woman Brando loves. It’s undeniably gorgeous to look at, as Charles Lang’s splendid cinematography gains in color and detail in Criterion’s restored hi-def transfer. Extras include a Martin Scorsese intro, Brando voice-recording excerpts made during production and video essays on Jacks’ production history and Brando’s making a western. The acting is the main thing in two new British television series, as well as one from Down Under. Capital is a clever drama tinged with mystery and paranoia, helped along by an ace cast led by Toby Jones, Rachael Stirling, Lesley Sharp and Gemma Jones. The intense Australian prison drama Wentworth —emphatically not a rip-off of Orange Is the New Black —also features a plethora of superb performers: Danielle Cormack, Nicole da Silva, Kris McQuade, Leeanna Walsman and Kate Atkinson. Wentworth extras include an hour of on-set featurettes and several interviews.
