DVD Review THE LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP (BLU-RAY)

THE LIFE AND DE

This beautifully restored British comedy has a great deal to say about aging and war without ever losing its light touch.

DVD Review PURPLE NOON (BLU-RAY)

PURPLE NOON (BL

Alain Delon's beautiful and cold Tom Ripley is one of film's all-time great villains, and this new edition of Purple Noon shows off the film's sensuous pleasures to great effect.

DVD Review WEEKEND (BLU-RAY)

WEEKEND (BLU-RA

Weekend wisely avoids most of the traps of its genre, and is brought to life by great performances and a disarmingly naturalistic tone.

DVD Review JUAN OF THE DEAD

JUAN OF THE DEA

How will Havana respond to the zombie apocalypse? This zombie comedy from Cuba is sometimes scattershot, but also pointed, gory, and funny.

DVD Review THE DEVIL'S NEEDLE AND OTHER TALES OF VICE AND REDEMPTION (BLU-RAY)

THE DEVIL'S NEE

None of these films is a masterpiece, nor are they in the best shape after almost a century of neglect. Nevertheless, they're extraordinary time capsules of a more liberal era.

DVD Review UP ALL NIGHT WITH ROBERT DOWNEY SR. (ECLIPSE SERIES 33)

UP ALL NIGHT WI

Experimental and subversive, but more than that...funny. Robert Downey, Sr.'s output in the 60s and 70s makes for some of the best underground filmmaking of the era.
Release Date: ,

DVD Review TITANIC (BLU-RAY/DVD COMBO)

TITANIC (BLU-RA

DVD Review A NIGHT TO REMEMBER

A NIGHT TO REME

A century after the disaster, this 1958 masterpiece remains the most thoughtful and accurate account of the Titanic's final night, as well as a gripping film in its own right.

DVD Review HISTORY OF THE WORLD IN TWO HOURS

Though you may not learn anything that you didn't already know, this very brief history of the universe is lively and entertaining without being dumb.

DVD Review ANATOMY OF A MURDER (BLU-RAY)

ANATOMY OF A MU

Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder is as entertaining as it is thoughtful about the limits of the law in grasping human nature. It feels fresh and mature even fifty years later, and stands as one of the best courtroom dramas in film history.
Release Date: ,

DVD Review COLD SWEAT (Sudor Frío)

COLD SWEAT

There’s a fun movie to be made from the clever premise, and director Adrián García Bogliano has a good time with a low budget. Still, the gaps in logic and dumb protagonists make for a horror film that’s hard to get worked up over.

DVD Review BOMBAY BEACH

BOMBAY BEACH

Bombay Beach tells the stories of the residents of a once-thriving tourist resort now lost to the world. Director Alma Har'el's film, with its gauzy, dreamlike quality and choreographed sequences is at once beautiful and deeply problematic.

DVD Review MEDEA (BLU-RAY)

MEDEA (BLU-RAY)

Pasolini's uncompromisingly arty Medea won't be to every taste, but the beauty and visceral brutality of the film is hypnotic.

DVD Review LOUVRE CITY

LOUVRE CITY

This contemplative but unpretentious film goes behind-the-scenes at the Louvre museum. Director Nicolas Philipert documents a vibrant community--an entire world--that tourists never see.

DVD Review BASIL DEARDEN'S LONDON UNDERGROUND (ECLIPSE SERIES 25)

BASIL DEARDEN'S

Even given some weaknesses, the four films of this collection are never less than competent and entertaining. In their own quiet ways, this neglected director may have to guide Britain through a tumultuous time into a more tolerant post-war world.

DVD Review THE PATTY DUKE SHOW: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON

THE PATTY DUKE

In its last year, The Patty Duke Show remains charming and well-written, a cut above the standard sixties-style family sitcom.

DVD Review BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN (BLU-RAY)

BATTLESHIP POTE

Many will question what an oft-abused silent film could possibly benefit from a high-def presentation. The answer is right here in this brilliant restoration of a brutal propaganda classic.

DVD Review GEORGE BERNARD SHAW ON FILM (ECLIPSE SERIES 20)

GEORGE BERNARD

Of producer-director Gabriel Pascal's mission to bring Shaw to the screen, the results here are decidedly mixed. There's a great deal of fun to be had, though, and flashes of brilliance throughout.

DVD Review BERGMAN ISLAND The Criterion Collection

BERGMAN ISLAND

Of the great directors of filmís first century, Bergman is perhaps the least fashionable. Interest comes and goes, but he never seems to inspire the widespread passion of a Hitchcock, or a Fellini or Kurosawa.
