    photo for Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers In the early decades of cinema, some of the most innovative and celebrated filmmakers in America were women. Alice Guy-Blaché helped establish the basics of cinematic language, while others boldly continued its development: slapstick queen Mabel Normand (who taught Charlie Chaplin the craft of directing), action star Grace Cunard, and LGBTQ icon Alla Nazimova. Unafraid of controversy, filmmakers such as Lois Weber and Dorothy Davenport Reid tackled explosive issues such as birth control, abortion, and prostitution. This crucial chapter of film history comes alive through this six-disc presentation of a wide assortment of films, carefully curated, meticulously restored in 2K and 4K from archival sources, and presented with new musical scores. Formats: DVD, Blu-ray. Extras: 80-page booklet with essays and photos, interviews with historians and archivists, audio commentaries for select films. (Kino Classics).

After witnessing a mob hit, Chicago musicians Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, in landmark performances) skip town by donning drag and joining an all-female band en route to Miami. The charm of the group's singer, Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe, at the height of her bombshell powers) leads them ever further into extravagant lies, as Joe assumes the persona of a millionaire to woo her and Jerry's female alter ego winds up engaged to a tycoon. With a whip-smart script by Wilder and I. A. L. Diamond, and sparking chemistry among its finely tuned cast, "Some Like It Hot" is as deliriously funny and fresh today as if it had just been made.

    Time Regained (1999 -- France) Catherine Deneuve, John Malkovich, Emmanuelle Béart, Vincent Perez, Marcello Mozzarella, Chiara Mastroianni. Raúl Ruiz’s most ambitious literary adaptation and considered his greatest cinematic achievement. Ruiz’s "Time Regained" distills all of Marcel Proust’s iconic "In Search of Lost Time" into a single epic feature. The film opens in 1922, as Proust is on his deathbed pouring through old photographs that summon the events of his life. Gradually, we watch as his own experiences merge with his own literary creations. Idyllic memories of youth alternate with rich recollections of 19th century Parisian society where the drama of the Great War and the anxieties of the emerging modern era are skewered in the spectacular staged soirees and lush grand parties. In Ruiz’s deft cinematic hands the film becomes a phantasmagorical comedy of manners as well as a powerful reflection on cinema’s ability to seize and preserve moments of time. The result is a montage of moving snapshots and feverish dreams that makes the film the ultimate in Proustian cinema. Formats: DVD, Blu-ray. (Icarus Films).

    To Dream (2016) Adam Deacon, Diana Vickers, Ed Hayter, Freddie Thorp. Two self-destructive teenagers in London won't let anything come between their friendship and their ultimate plan, but when dysfunctional family life becomes intolerable, loyalty leads one to make a choice that will change their lives forever.
