Hashire! Shiroi okami #

Released 4/28/1990

Description: A gray wolf raised on a farm kills the family dog, and to save him from being destroyed, a man called Lasset makes a trek through the wilderness with the wolf to a wilderness sanctuary 300 miles to the north. The BGM in the movie consists entirely of Dvorak's Serenade for Strings, making it perhaps the only anime since Gauche the Cellist to create test of a single piece of classical melody as the soundtrack. The plot of the movie is easy and the outcome obvious, but the atmosphere of the movie is genuine, and it is very moving in parts thanks to Dvorak's melody (which is scored entirely for the most emotional of the instrument groups, the strings). This is a straightforward drama about the friendship between a man and his wolf, and it pushes all the buttons you'd expect, but it's very enjoyable despite all that.

Nutcracker: An American Nightmare Reviews:

Director Glen Grefe's first full-length detail movie is a testament to why Independent details are produced. This self proclaimed "no budget" thriller kept me enthralled from beginning to end. Unlike another movies that finish their hero development within the first half hour or so, Nutcracker's characters are ever changing and evolving which keeps the viewer's interest better than many large budget films. The first reason I decided to view this movie was the inclusion of David Hess to the cast. Hess has been one of my favourite Horror/Suspense actors since the mid 1980s, so naturally this movie was a must-see for me. In addition to Hess, I found the movie to be solidly acted throughout. I thought Bill Bragg turned in a nice performance as Dr. Carlton Fairfax, and I absolutely loved Darian O'Toole's performance as the Vampiress who is not quite ready to face the globe without her beloved therapist, and of course, the most subtle and underlying hero in this film was the setting itself, the superb town of San Francisco, whose beauty is skillfully displayed with the film's perfect camera work. This movie is also paced very nicely, and with a relatively short running time (approx. 1:20), it is an simple movie to digest. I highly suggest this movie to fanatics of Suspense Thrillers or Giallo films, as well as any fanatics of the work of the unmistakable David Hess! Currently, you can buy the movie on Amazon or at the film's official site but I have heard a rumor about a unique Blockbuster Edition of this movie possibly coming in early 2007, we can only hope! A funny side note, the movie has nice audio, so convincing in fact that when Carlton rings Sierra's doorbell, my 2 dogs go absolutely bonkers! Probably the only film I own that gets a reaction like that, my hat's off to whoever mixed the audio!


This is what I would call "One of the prettiest thrillers,I've seen", Not sure how to explain beyond that.Grefe is helped by Director Of Photography Brian"Bloody Bender"Hoehn,and his lead is the very good,David"Last House On The Left"Hess.The plot,title is a enjoy on Xmas and Psychology-cute huh ? The test of Northern California wine country is most welcome,again very cute my fiends.To see this cast receive a possibility to present their best,makes you satisfied to explore a NEW talent to watch.The lead suspect is amply played by David Hess,who also has quite a singing career-Nice mental picture of this villain portrayer strumming. Accessible on Amazon.com too. Side note: How is Glen Grefe similar to William Grefe,who gave us "Death Curse of Tartu" cult movie ?


Okay, first I hated it, then I loved it - and it was only soon when I realized why, the second time I saw it - its because the main hero is so unlikable, that you thoroughly despise him... and it becomes cathartic fun! The film is type of like a shot-on-video Hitchcock and Lynch under severe hypnosis, which, although confusing at times, wraps itself at the end in a noir sort of way, towards self-destructive destiny - does that create sense? It reminded me of the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in a method with a underlying theme of seething revenge and spite. Anyway, David Hess (you know - 'Krug' from Craven's cult hit "Last House on the Left") is one of the main characters (and one of the main reasons I purchased it) and he really kicks ass performance wise -almost carrying the special and quirky independent film. Hope to see more from Grefe (I'm wondering if he is similar to 70's exploitation filmmaker, William "Stanley" Grefe...).
