Now On Blu-ray: Christina, Dolemite, Dangerous Men

I've recently had the opportunity to check out three Us Blu-ray releases of varying degrees of weirdness. Intervision Picture Corp.'s Blu-ray release of Christina, Vinegar Syndrome's Blu-ray of Rudy Ray Moore's Dolemite, and Drafthouse Films' recent release of John S. Rad's Dangerous Men.  All three are definitely strange in their own way, but they are also oddly compelling. Check out the details below to find out why....

The Outre Eye of Daniel Xiii featuring Dolemite, Dangerous Men, and More!

The Outre Eye of Daniel Xiii featuring Dolemite, Dangerous Men, and More!
Dolemite

• Release Date: Available Now on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack

• Written By: Jerry Jones, Rudy Ray Moore

• Directed By: D’Urville Martin

• Starring: Rudy Ray Moore, D’Urville Martin, Jerry Jones, Lady Reed

Dolemite is a flick stacked to the rafters with “shouldn’t”s. A man of Rudy Ray Moore’s build shouldn’t be able to pull down the insane amounts of trim he does. A man that knows so very precious little about martial arts (R.R. Moore again) shouldn’t be attempting those high kicking moves. These people that are about as far away from being actual actors (with a few exceptions) as my house is from Venus shouldn’t be reading reams of dialogue. Actually, this whole production shouldn’t be entertaining or even watchable, but holy hell is it ever!!

The long and short of the tale is this: (maybe) pimp and club owner

25 Things We Learned from the Dangerous Men Commentary

There are good movies, bad movies, and plenty of movies in between — and then there are movies like Dangerous Men. It’s a charmingly inept action/drama that’s utterly uninterested in predictability or following the norms of narrative film-making. Characters come and go, main plot points are dropped randomly while others are picked up, and it was filmed over two decades. Two decades for an 80 minute movie with zero narrative cohesion! It’s pretty magical in its own special way, and as the credits make clear, it’s all due to writer/director John S. Rad. Drafthouse Films helped reintroduce it to the world, and their Blu-ray/DVD release features interviews, a documentary on the film’s rebirth, and a fittingly funny and ridiculous commentary track. It’s not for everyone, but it’s definitely for someone — and you know who you are. Keep reading to see what I heard on the Dangerous Men commentary. Dangerous Men

Dangerous Men Leave Beautiful Memories In This Exclusive Clip

Director John S Rad created an object of strange and wondrous oddity with his Dangerous Men, a film that would surely have become a cult classic if only it had ever actually been released. Well, it took a while, but Drafthouse Films have finally done just that and following up on its theatrical run the film is now available for audiences around the globe to experience on iTunes. In 1979, Iranian filmmaker John S. Rad moved to the U.S. to shoot his dream project, a rampaging gutter epic of crime, revenge, cop sex and raw power. Just 26 years later, he completed an American action film masterpiece that the world is still barely ready for today: Dangerous Men. After Mina witnesses her fiancé's brutal murder...

Dangerous Men Review

Remember that scene in The Boondock Saints, where Rocco can’t comprehend how Connor and Murphy MacManus pull of their death-defying assassination stunt after breaking through a hotel air vent? You know, this rant?

That’s exactly how Dangerous Men makes me feel.

The late John S. Rad’s film is a technical clusterf$ck, from unsynced audio to horrendous jump cuts without any foreseeable logic. This is a poorly constructed film in every imaginable category, from actors who are dead on arrival, to a story that can’t be more than a few sentences long. Yet if you’re reading about Dangerous Men, then I assume you’ve already seen Roar and Miami Connection. In that case, you’re probably already dying to hear what abhorrent cinematic atrocities await in this year’s only true cult phenomenon – Drafthouse’s latest resurrection release.

He has a woman that takes a knife out of her behind to kill somebody. How does he think this is going to make money?"

More than 30 years after Iranian filmmaker Jahangir Salehi Yeganehrad, a.k.a. John S. Rad, began work on the L.A. sleaze cult film Dangerous Men, his daughter, Samira Wenzel, still shakes her head thinking about the mesmerizing, incomprehensibly riveting movie.

"I asked him, 'What do you think? This is going to make millions of dollars?,'" Wenzel says. "He goes, 'Well, there's two ways

Man Trouble: Rad Enters Race for Worst Film Ever Made

A unique oddity even amongst contemporary counterparts competing for notoriety as one of the worst films ever made, John S. Rad’s Dangerous Men is, without a doubt, a terribly made film. What is perhaps most fascinating is the laborious production of the film. Rad, an Iranian immigrant, began making his labor of love in the 1980s, and would continue to film sequences over the next two decades. In that time, cast members and characters seem to have disappeared, explaining a jumbled narrative and a myriad of unexplainable events. The film does perhaps usurp Tommy Wisseau’s strange perseverance to complete his 2003 opus The Room, another director seemingly clueless about all aspects of the filmmaking process yet still determined to complete his compromised vision.

But as far as film criticism goes, it’s difficult to correctly ascertain the value

Review: Dangerous Men? Enema On Drugs!

Dangerous Men's Iranian born director John S. Rad (Jahangir Salehi Yeganehrad) left only this odd cinematic totem of his existence on earth when he died in 2007, soon after the film's belated (and extremely limited) theatrical release in 2005. While he'd stated in at least one interview that he had spent his life pursuing creative endeavors, it's hard to track down anything other than Dangerous Men, and that one only because of the heroes at Drafthouse Films. Unlike Drafthouse Films' releases of similarly bonkers oddities like Miami Connection, The Visitor, and Roar, which had some ensemble elements to their creation, Dangerous Men only exists because of John S. Rad's unflappable determination to will it into existence. Every single major on screen production credit has Rad's name proudly attached....

'Dangerous Men' and 6 Other Wild and Crazy Examples of Action Dads Cinema

'Dangerous Men' and 6 Other Wild and Crazy Examples of Action Dads Cinema
Read More: Watch: 'Dangerous Men' is the Most Perfect Film You've Never Seen in Bonkers Nsfw Trailer This coming weekend will see the long-awaited release of "Dangerous Men," an action film oddity/achievement that took 22 years to complete and another decade to hit screens. It's a combustible aesthetic assault of machismo, vengeance, non-arousing sexuality and unspeakable anti-logic, framed in a sweat-choked L.A. otherworld that's filtered through the unique mind of Iranian-American outsider filmmaker John S. Rad. Brimming with ideas and dialogue grown from a primordial alien id, "Dangerous Men" is like no other experience you will ever have with a movie. But!... against all odds, it's representative of a secret genre that is only now creeping its way into the limelight; a decidedly '80s cinematic sub-sub-sub-category that we lovingly refer to as "Action Dads!!!" If you're like me, you thrill to heroic, no-rules masculinity defined...

The ‘Dangerous Men’ Trailer is 91 Seconds of Pure, Unadulterated Insanity
Dangerous Men is a very strange, very special beast that has to be seen to be believed. Although you could be forgiven for thinking it was written and shot by aliens who had never seen a movie (but had a few described to them), it’s actually the one and only film of the late John S. Rad. It’s a singular, […]

'Dangerous Men' Trailer: Drafthouse Saves a Lost Action Classic
Drafthouse Films, the curatorial force behind exceptional repertory releases such as the ninja-blasting synth-rock monolith Miami Connection, the psychedelic sci-fi brainmelter The Visitor, and the most dangerous movie ever made, Roar, have announced the acquisition of their latest cult sensation, Dangerous Men, following a packed-house screening of the film at Fantastic Fest. The fanatical brainchild of Iranian polymath John Rad, Dangerous Men is a passion project that remained in obsessive production for nearly two decades before finally debuted in Californian theaters in 2005. An unflappably prodigious creative force, Rad handled much of the technical duties of the film, appearing multiple times in the film's credits as the director, writer, location scout, producer, executive producer, and more. You can finally get your first glimpse of this lost film in the first trailer.

Despite initially languishing at the box office during its limited theatrical release, and never finding a likeminded audience before Rad's
