Damn! The DVD of 'A Time to LOVE and a Time to Die' is an import, right? (Sirk insisted on slightly changing the original title of Remarque's source novel, 'A Time to LIVE and a Time to Die', which, by the way, is also the title most often associated with a Hou masterpiece from 1985.) I don't recall it ever being available in region-1. Anyway, looking forward to your thoughts on this and the other Sirks you've pillaged. And the Ray one as well. // Thanks for the encouragement regarding Minnelli. I'll keep those films in mind, and the book, too.
Re-watched "The Man from Nowhere," and determined that my post you so rightly questioned was fucking retarded. It no longer exists. Just thought I'd let you know. :P
Glad you liked it. I hope you get a chance to take a look at the others as well, especially 'A Time to Love and a Time To Die' and 'The Tarnished Angels'.
Finally posted the "in progress" version of the Giallo List. Lots more to add, but here's the start: http://mubi.com/lists/10025-the-giallo-list
