Also seen is the mid-winter season, a time of intense socializing in the communal igloo, with games, contests and ceremonial activities.
Description: Folk-jazz composer/arranger Arthur Verocai was born in Rio de Janeiro. He has created challenging arragements and compositions for Brazilian artists Jorge Ben, Ivan Lins, Leny Andrade and Gal Costa. In 1972 Verocai recorded a self-titled solo LP. It is a stunningly innovative effort. It puts Verocai into a rarified field with the massive string oriented melody of Charles Stepney, David Axelrod and Frank Zappa. Released in a period marked by the Brazilian military government, the album fared poorly. Following its re-issue in 2003, the album has become a highly influential oft sampled classic (see Ludacris, MF Doom and Tiny Brother). The performance of this seminal 1972 record in its entirety brought the capacity Luckmann crowd to a stand still. According to Verocai, 'he had never played the record, alive or dead!' His delight can be seen on the DVD. The melody has been mixed by Verocai himself in Rio. History turned on its head and musical justice served.

Description: Eclat is a fascinating documentary about the work. We witness rehearsals by the Netherlands' Nieuw Ensemble, hear comments about the piece from the composer, conductor Ed Spanjaard and some of the musicians, and we see a full performance of the work. Eclat ("To explode out") is a pretty example of the strangely lyrical pointillist style that Boulez had inherited from Anton von Webern. Aural pinwheels and shifting musical kaleidoscopes with stunning instrumental color is the only method to verbally describe what gotta be heard to be understood. This is definitely not for those who hate "modern" music. For those who reply to contemporary music, this piece is masterful and this movie is a must-see!
Description: A documentary of the real storyline of two American adventurers who follow mysterious clues to search the real Mt. Sinai.

Don't receive me wrong. The Ultimate Ric Flair Collection is a nice DVD set and belongs in any wrestling fan's DVD library, but in my opinion, Difficult Knocks: The Chris Benoit Storyline was a more finished story. It hit cute much all the key points in Benoit's career. All the major game wins, the storyline on his early years and even the smaller things such as how he became "The Crippler". Ric Flair's DVD can't honestly tell that. I believed when I purchased something named the "Ultimate Ric Flair Collection", it would at least include his first record-breaking 7 NWA/WCW Game wins. It seemed as if WWE fully forgot about anything or anyone that didn't have some relevance to their company. The Benoit DVD seemed to me to be a entire lot more about the entire Chris Benoit storyline than about fluffing up WWE, which in many cases, was what the Flair DVD was. To be fair, I don't think you should fit all of Ric Flair's key matches in a 4 DVD set, but it omitted some items that was obvious to most it could be in there. Enough on the comparison, allow me say you more about the DVD at hand.Hard Knocks started off with Chris Benoit and different family members and mates talking about his early years as a fanatic and becoming a wrestler. Not only what he had to do at the popular Stu Hart Dungeon, but what it took just to receive there. They talked about his career early in Canada and the obvious influences of his private wrestling hero, The Dynamite Kid, and it shows how related their styles really are. He even spoke very emotionally on the deaths of Stu and Owen Hart.One of the tiny things that sets this DVD apart from the another WWE DVDs is the fact that they now went out and got rights to some footage that doesn't belong to them. Showing highlights from the Super "J" Cup in Fresh Japan Pro-Wrestling was a really cool thing to see, as you can't really receive a DVD in the right format with this items anywhere else. You receive to see Chris Benoit wrestling as the Pegasus Child under a mask, and as "Wild Pegasus" Chris Benoit after he lost the match. After the Japanese footage, it goes on to some ECW footage and ultimately, this is where and how he got his "Crippler" moniker that is still with him today. From there it was on to his WCW days, and like most another wrestlers who were there, didn't play himself and started to hate what he was doing. It should have gone more into the storyline on how he won the WCW Globe Game vs Sid Vicious here, but it chose to leave this tiny back storyline out of it. Anyhow, it goes on to his WWF/WWE debut along with Eddie Guerrero, Perry Saturn and Dean Malenko and the rest of his WWE history. The storyline goes into his neck injury, what it took to come back and the nice turn of happenings from there. It cute much ends with his future classic match at WrestleMania XX vs Triple H and Shawn Michaels in the Triple Threat Match where he finally wins the Globe Heavyweight Championship. The sight of both Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit in the middle of the ring with both of their Globe Heavyweight Games was nice and an nice method to present how parallel their careers now were and truly deserving of each accolade.DVD EXTRAS!!This is where you truly receive your money's worth. There are some nice gems in here. Allow me say, I don't trust there is such a thing as a terrible Chris Benoit match, but there are some that should have been better represented or switched with other match. I'll test and give some meaningful comments on all these matches, without spoiling the outcomes for anyone that hasn't seen them (in another words, if you've been under a rock). Also, one of the cool tiny things about this DVD, if you don't wish to listen to the Japanese commentary on the Japanese matches, you have a choice of switching to Michael Cole and Tazz commentating, in which sounds like they're commentating for Smackdown, or you should listen to Chris Benoit, himself, along with Dean Malenko and Todd Grisham talking about the match, which seems more like a director's commentary. Pegasus Child versus Jushin Liger for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Game - For some reason, Pegasus Child reminded me of a young Owen Hart here. They started off with some mat wrestling and by the end, they turned it into a cute good, solid match that still stands up as nice today.Chris Benoit versus 2 Cold Scorpio at WCW SuperBrawl '93 - The fanatics weren't into this match at all until the end. I can't really figure out why they place this match on here. The match was OK, still nice but OK considering it's Benoit, but Tony Schiavone treated this match like it was nothing special. It probably wasn't to him or anyone else behind the scenes at that time. I'd rather listen to Japanese commentary than Schiavone by himself, and I'm reminded of why I stopped liking WCW after listening to him for this one match. I would have rather seen something else from ECW in this spot or maybe the match where he lost his mask to Jushin Liger in Japan. "Wild Pegasus" Chris Benoit versus Black Tiger (Eddie Guerrero) - This is most likely one of the first times these two have wrestled every other. This was the Semi-Finals of the 1994 Super "J" Cup and it was full of high risk maneuvers and nice high spots."Wild Pegasus" Chris Benoit versus The Nice Sasuke - This was the 1994 Super "J" Cup Finals. Sasuke threw a great dropkick off the top rope to the outside and a nice handspring moonsault from inside the ring to the outside. It's matches like this that made the Super "J" Cup one of the most necessary and well received competitions of all time.Chris Benoit versus Sabu - This was at ECW's November to Remember in 1994. Very short match, as it was the one where Sabu broke his neck. "Crippler" Chris Benoit versus "Snowman" Al Snow - This started off as a very fast and high paced match, then slowed down a little. Suplexes galore. This was definitely one of Al Snow's best matches."Canadian Crippler" Chris Benoit versus Eddie Guerrero - Everything looked much more crisp and powerful in this match than on their previous match on this video. You can say they've worked together many times between actually and then. Probably the most brutal powerbomb I've ever seen came from this match.Chris Benoit versus "Taskmaster" Kevin Sullivan - This was from The Nice American Bash '96 in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. Most of it took zone in a men's room somewhere in the stadium. Surprisingly, no one's head ended up in a toilet or urinal. This was not as terrible as I remembered. Probably the greatest Kevin Sullivan had to offer.Chris Benoit versus Booker T. - This was the Greatest Of 7 Series final match at The Nice American Bash '98. Booker T was a much better worker back then, and it shows. He even takes a Dragon Suplex, which I would have bet I would never see that.Chris Benoit versus Bret Hart - This was one of the top matches, if not THE TOP MATCH, ever to be broadcast on Monday Nitro. It was the Owen Hart Tribute Match. It went over 30 mins and not only did they place on one hell of a match, it made me miss Bret Hart's wrestling matches. Hopefully, one day he'll have a DVD like this I can review.Chris Benoit versus Sid Vicious - Chris even carried Sid to a nice match here. It started with Sid beating down Chris and went to Chris working Sid's leg most of the match. The entire WCW locker room came out to watch this match on the ramp. Overall, a cute nice match but I want they would have gotten into the entire storyline behind the scenes on this one.Chris Benoit versus William Regal - This match took zone at the Brian Pillman Memorial Present in 2000. As you would expect, it featured some nice mat wrestling on both parts. I'm glad this was added to the DVD.Chris Benoit versus Kurt Angle - In my opinion, these two matches with Kurt Angle were the greatest two on the DVD. This steel cage match shown on WWE RAW featured all-out nice wrestling. It also went above and beyond with the high risk moves such as an nice German Suplex from Chris off the top rope, one of the most nice moonsaults from Kurt Angle off the top of the cage, Benoit's popular flying headbutt off the top of the cage and, count them, 9 German Suplexes in a row from Benoit. Don't miss this one!Chris Benoit versus Kurt Angle - This was a WWE Championship match from the Royal Rumble in 2003. This match should main happening any PPV, including WrestleMania. Nice spots, false finishes and, as usual, a entire lot of suplexes.Chris Benoit versus Shawn Michaels versus Triple H - As I mentioned earlier, no doubt this will be considered a future classic, if it isn't already. This 3-way action was nice with all the perfectly timed spots and near falls. This was a nice method to finish off this DVD and overall, a nice showcase to the 19 years Chris Benoit has dedicated to professional wrestling.I give this DVD 10 out of 10, it deserves no less.
...I have had win and defeat, and conquer in victory;I will never be over-matched or unprepared;This is who I am and who I will everytime be;I am Chris Benoit!

This is the true storyline behind his rise to the top of the business he's loved since childhood. Relive the setbacks and the triumphs from those who have worked with him, and who know his story. From his early days in Canada, Japan and Mexico, to ECW, WCW and WWE, Chris Benoit has earned the respect of wrestling fanatics around the world."
A young boy from Alberta called Christopher Daniel Benoit was blown away by seeing professional wrestler, Dynamite Kid, perform in a squared circle. Afterwards, he was determined to be a wrestler just like Dynamite Child and would go on to train under renowned wrestling teacher, Stu Hart. He made it large in Japan Wrestling, then Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), then Globe Championship Wrestling (WCW), then Globe Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He had a passion and undying love for the sport which made him rise to the top in 2004 and became one of the most respected and gifted wrestlers ever. Nobody ever had a terrible thing to tell about him. But it was not all golden. A crumbling marriage, disabled son, illegal drugs, and overworking caused his downfall. But it was ultimately the effect of few head injuries and concussions that caused him to snap and murder his wife, son, and himself over a three day period in July of 2007. Autopsy showed his brain matched an 85-year-old Alzheimer's patient's. WWE canceled their three hour Mr. McMahon tribute show, refunded the tickets and had a Benoit tribute show, showing matches from this DVD, more recents, and WWE stars remembering him. The next night on ECW, McMahon announced that due to newfound evidence that Benoit murdered his wife, son, then himself, that WWE would never mention his name ever again. Since then, they have removed his name from any and all ties with the company, removed all matches he was a main member of, mute his name during old matches, test father camera angles, and only briefly mention him in the Encyclopedia. CM Punk told during a ComicCon that WWE was not trying to erase him, just not promoting him. What WWE has done to "not promote" is overkill and IS erasing. There's more evidence telling OJ Simpson is guilty, but has NFL and Paramount erased him? A several months before the murders, WWE found that MVP also had something wrong in his brain that was treated right away; how come they found nothing on Benoit? They've tried so difficult to not test any footage with him and have even tried replace his moments. The greatest moments in Wrestlemania history (many say) was when Benoit won the Globe Game in the main happening at WM XX, with greatest mate Eddie Guerrero coming out to congratulate him and they embrace. It was the most heartfelt moment ever. WWE tried to replace that by having Benoit's current replacement (Daniel Bryan) victory a triple threat match (in almost the exact same way) and celebrate in a very related matter. Nobody will ever replace the Rabid Wolverine.2004 was the year of Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero: two greatest mates and the greatest technical wrestlers of their generation. Both boys won the Globe games that year that were very much deserving. They were undersized, but overcame everything to beat the best. Around the time of this, WWE released an Eddie Guerrero documentary/match compilation named "Cheating Death, Stealing Life: The Eddie Guerrero Story." Both are very inspirational and feel good. Watching Difficult Knocks, it is difficult to trust that this is the same guy that committed those terrible actions. It is a Cinderella storyline about overcoming the odds. Wrestling may be a fake sport, but getting recognized in wrestling is no various than any another sport: you gotta prove to be the best. Benoit worked his ass of to excellent his skills and became one of the most intense wrestlers ever filmed. Folks twice his sized weren't as nice of a performance as him. He pulled off believable wins vs much bigger guys. Each Chris Benoit match, even the fillers he did, are astonishing. WWE chose his greatest matches up to that point. I'm not glorifying a killer. I'm not telling his last actions are forgivable. I'm telling that I will everytime remember him as on of the very greatest professional wrestlers of all time.
