See if you don’t agree after viewing three new two- disc Special Edition releases of Rear Window ( 1954), Vertigo ( 1958) and Psycho ( 1960). Rear Window starred James Stewart as a professional photographer trapped in his Manhattan apartment nursing a broken leg. Equipped with powerful telephoto lenses, the guy can’t help himself from studying the lives of his neighbours from his window. But his relatively innocent voyeurism turns into a dangerous hobby when he begins to suspect the harried hubby ( a menacing Raymond Burr) in the apartment across the courtyard has done away with his wife. ( How else to explain his leaving his apartment three times in the middle of the night carrying a large sample case?) Vertigo , the most visually gorgeous of the three films, again stars Stewart, this time as an acrophobic ex- cop. He turns private eye to trail a man’s wife, who apparently being possessed by the suicidal spirit of a tragic ancestor. The kinky stuff comes later, when Stewart assumes the mein of a sweaty fetishist as he attempts to make over a hard- bitten redhead ( Kim Novak) into the image of his dead blond paramour. ( Casting the usually more wholesome Stewart in the role was Hitchcock at his most subtly perverse.) Finally, Psycho offers up rather hardcore perversion embodied by motel manager Norman Bates ( Anthony Perkins), acts out in spectacularly inappropriate ways when aroused by a thieving bank employee ( Janet Leigh) who registers at the Bates Motel. These are all beautifully remastered movies, lovely to look at, and sublime to hear, given the quality of the smart, sophisticated scripts Hitchcock demanded. All three: š š š š š H AL Ma thre ing th releas Rea prof Manh E lenses i u y apartm le m samp Ver th priv is a su ki as study w voyeu apart 30 eih sub F core ager who a ate wa emplo Ba The movie phisti th redhe hi th The Simpsons: The Eleventh Season THERE’S something undeniably funny about having Maude Flanders die by a barrage of T- shirts fired by air cannons at a speedway. But the episode Alone Again Natura- Diddily was proof that the dependably brilliant series could — and did — go seriously wrong when it turned 11. Killing off Maude was a sin compounded by the Bart to the Future episode ( in which we see Lisa as President of the United States courtesy of a vision Bart sees in the process of being detained at a First Nations casino). This season saw a slumming sensibility in its lineup of guest voices. Really, Kid Rock? On the plus side: Love the Krusty the Clown packaging; love the Treehouse of Horrors episode ( Comic Book Guy turns into a comic book villain — The Collector); and love the guest shot by Bachman- Turner Overdrive, which has its entire concert set determined by a drunk, belligerent Homer. š š š The Happening M. NIGHT Shyamalan’s latest starts in bracing, surreal fashion. A wind blows through New York’s Central Park and suddenly New Yorkers take out their baseline aggression on themselves, culminating in a rain of workers leaping from a construction site opposite the park. Terrorism gets the blame for the occurrence, but as the whole Eastern Seaboard starts to succumb to this suicidal spree, an environmental event becomes a possibility. A Pennsylvania high school science teacher ( Mark Wahlberg, seriously miscast) tries to figure it all out while running from the phenomenon — literally at one point. Yes, that’s right, Wahlberg and a few unfortunate castmates attempt to outrun the wind. The movie was hyped as Shyamalan’s dipping his toes into R- rated territory, but a DVD doc shows Night shying away from getting too graphic in a scene involving a shotgun. In any case, after the first 10 minutes, the movie fails to make much impact, either dramatically or viscerally. š š You Don’t Mess with the Zohan TO its credit, this Adam Sandler movie has an unprecedented premise for a contemporary American comedy. It actually attempts to say something pertinent about the quagmire of violence and hatred in the Middle East. Zohan ( Sandler) is a superhuman Mossad agent tired of the routine of taking out Palestinian insurgents. By day, he is a super- confident, disco- dancing stud, but in the privacy of his room at night, he weeps like a little girl: “ I only want to make people smooth and silky,” he says, while gazing in lustful rapture at a catalogue of Paul Mitchell hairstyles from the mid-’ 80s. It’s a bit of a mess, but Sandler and writers Robert Smigl and Judd Apatow do manage to wring a few outrageous laughs from the material, especially in mocking Middle East stuck- in- the-’ 80s fashion sensibility and culture, which encompasses a shared adulation for randall. king@ freepress. mb. ca hummus, hackysack and Mariah Carey. š š š E _ 06_ oct- 09- 08. indd 1 ;
