TV SPOTLIGHT


THE DEUCE: SEASON TWO


Official Synopsis: It’s the late 1970s, when punk, disco and porn reigns and New York City never sleeps. Welcome to Season 2 of this dark, gritty series that follows the interconnected stories of barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police, actors, producers and mobsters. Five years after Season 1, the Deuce’s backroom massage parlors and SRO hotels have exploded into sprawling emporiums, featuring live sex shows and peep booths for every imaginable fetish. Among the large ensemble of characters, Vincent Martino (James Franco) now presides over a range of mob-backed nightspots while his twin, Frankie (Franco), despite his remaining a loose cannon, is managing a profitable sex establishment; and Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) has become a rising director of ambitious adult films.


CRITERION CORNER


SHAME (1968)


Official Synopsis: Directed by Ingmar Bergman, Shame (Skammen) is at once an examination of the violent legacy of World War II and a scathing response to the escalation of the conflict in Vietnam. Max von Sydow and Liv Ullmann star as musicians living in quiet retreat on a remote island farm, until the civil war that drove them from the city catches up with them there. Amid the chaos of the military struggle, vividly evoked by pyrotechnics and by cinematographer Sven Nykvist’s handheld camera work, the two are faced with impossible moral choices that tear at the fabric of their relationship. This film, which contains some of the most devastating scenes in Bergman’s oeuvre, shows the impact of war on individual lives.

  • New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Interviews with director Ingmar Bergman and a brief excerpt from a press conference for the film, recorded in 1967 and ’68 for Swedish television
  • New interview with actor Liv Ullmann
  • An Introduction to Ingmar Bergman, a 1968 documentary made during the film’s production, featuring an extensive interview with Bergman
