As a young girl growing up practically orphaned, with little or no education, on a nearly deserted Outer Banks island, Jessie has the good luck to meet a visiting writer, a folklorist. The writer becomes Jessies protector, mentor and, eventually, mother. Unknown to Jessie, her father, who has been serving time in prison since she was an infant, returns to the island, incognito. His only desire is to observe his daughter and make sure that shes safe. He has no intention of interfering in her life, if hes satisfied. He finds twelve-year-old Jessie living with her step-father, an eccentric travelling evangelist, who might well be psychopathic; but since Jessie is also under the protection of her friend, the folklorist, he hesitates to reveal himself and intrude in her life. His hesitation to do so inadvertently triggers the event which creates in her the sense of tragedy that ever after shadows her otherwise successful life.

Gestapo’s Last Orgy


$8.77


One of the more sophisticated of the short-lived cycle of Nazi torture camp exploitation films, CALIGULA REINCARNATED AS HITLER (aka LAST ORGY OF THE THIRD REICH) fluctuates between the kitschy poor taste of ILSA, SHE WOLF OF THE S.S. and the serious exploration of human depravity found in SALO. Lise (Daniela Poggi) is an imprisoned Jewish girl brought to the ladies-only death camp run by the sadistic Commandant Starker (Marc Loud). She blames herself for the capture and death of her family, and doesn’t fear death or torture. The Commandant, intrigued by Lise’s nihilism, takes a special liking to her, and becomes determined to make her dread his many creative methods of torment. Once banned in the UK, CALIGULA REINCARNATED AS HITLER is not for those with weak stomachs.

Liongold: Sunlight and Shadows in the Era of Apartheid


Liongold: Sunlight and Shadows in the Era of Apartheid


$30.91


LIONGOLD is the poignant memoir of a white girl growing up in South Africa during the height of the apartheid regime. Sometimes gently ironic, at other times funny, sad or shocking, this book describes life in a beautiful place, at an ugly time in its history. Bea Alden grew up in Johannesburg, a tall city founded on a vast wealth of gold being mined day and night in deep underground shafts by an army of black laborers. Above and below ground, around the entire country, blacks did hard physical work on behalf of whites. Apartheid encouraged white families to employ black servants, and Bea’s parents saw no bias in this practice. In that place and time, it seemed quite normal. Her father’s mental illness was their secret shame, and the family lived in dread of it becoming known in their own white circle. In language rich with mood and atmosphere, delicately unfolding the intricate relationships of gender, class, ethnicity and race, LIONGOLD tells the story of one family, their tragic problems, and an entire way of life doomed, necessarily, to give way to immense change.

Max Payne


Max Payne


$7.22


Based on the video game from Rockstar, MAX PAYNE stars Mark Wahlberg as a New York City cop out to avenge his slain wife and child, and heaven help anyone who gets in his blood-strewn way. The trail leads him into a network of shady characters mixed up with an experimental drug that causes super strength and fearlessness, as well as wild hallucinations of winged angels and demons. As Max gets closer and closer to the truth, he finds himself the target of a massive police manhunt, and in the crosshairs of the powerful kingpin behind the racket; soon enough, the angels and demons become downright deadly. Olga Kurylenko (QUANTUM OF SOLACE) is a beautiful Russian party girl who winds up dead after a late-night visit to Max’s pad; her assassin sister (Mila Kunis) first goes after Max, then tries to help him get some answers. Rap star Ludacris (here credited as Chris Bridges) is a tough internal affairs cop investigating Payne’s behavior. Shot in an impressively grungy palette of high-contrast grays and blacks, with snow and sheets of rain soaking the grim atmosphere, New York City is brilliantly morphed into something like Gotham City by way of Detroit, with a touch of X-FILES-style supernatural dread looming over everything. Director John Moore knows how to stage his action scenes: offices blow up, big chunks of rubble crush police cars, bodies and shattered glass suspend in mid-air for some of the slowest slow-mo moments in action film history. Fans of the video game and/or action movies in general should get a kick out of all the mega-loud insanity, stylish design, and Wahlberg, who never changes his mean expression, but still commands the screen.
