DVD Review LOST KEATON

LOST KEATON

Fans of Buster Keaton can rejoice, for Kino has brought to DVD all 16 of the rarely-seen short films Buster Keaton made for Educational Pictures in the mid-1930s. Despite the studio's name, there's nothing educational here, except lessons in comedy timing from the Great Stone Face himself.

DVD Review BLACK NARCISSUS (BLU-RAY)

BLACK NARCISSUS

Conflicts of many kinds are present in Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's Black Narcissus, set against the beauty and danger of the Himalayas. These include the shock of Anglo-Catholic nuns set in the midst of the mountains among natives who speak no English, the struggle between flesh and the spirit, between medicine and superstition, between vows and longing for a different life, and between the monied classes and the impoverished. The new Blu-ray Disc from The Criterion Collection brings a splendid film-like appearance to the ravishing visuals.

DVD Review THE GENERAL (BLU-RAY)

THE GENERAL (BL

There's a sense that Blu-ray is just an improvement for recenet effects-laden extravaganzas. Bucking that trend, Kino offers up the first Blu-ray presentation of a silent film in America (the British disc of Sunrise having beaten it to the punch. But can an 85-year old film hold up in the HD era?

DVD Review BARDELYS THE MAGNIFICENT / MONTE CRISTO The Lost Films of John Gilbert

BARDELYS THE MA

The memory of silent screen star John Gilbert is not helped at all by the fact that so many of his pictures are no longer extant. But this new set from Flicker Alley helps correct that, with recently-discovered prints of two of Gilbert's major films, which happen to be the only ones of these films known to exist. We're very lucky indeed to have these long-hidden classics unearthed and brought to DVD in lovely restorations.

DVD Review TEMPEST

TEMPEST

The fall of the Tsars has proven to be fertile ground for filmic drama, but one of the earlier of these efforts was John Barrymore's Tempest, produced only a decade after the events depicted. With a story written by a Russian, and a screenplay co-written by an uncredited Erich von Stroheim, it certainly promises to be interesting.

DVD Review THE UNINVITED (BLU-RAY)

THE UNINVITED (

Rehashes of Asian horror movies are becoming commonplace, but given the right treatment, they can be effective. Case in point: this American reworking of the Korean picture A Tale of Two Sisters, which manages to keep a lot of the creepy atmosphere of the original while successfully dumbing it down for us Yanks. A brisk pace and a brief running time help keep it from wearing out its welcome.

DVD Review AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (BLU-RAY)

AN AMERICAN IN

It's hard to imagine a picture that features a ton of George Gershwin music, Gene Kelly dancing and striking Technicolor photography being messed up, but the grossly-overrated 1951 Oscar-winner for Best Picture certainly does what it can to be appalling, grating and tedious all at once. Dragged down by a moronic plot, lack of chemistry between the leads, excruciating casting, and shockingly poor integration of the music into the story, it's unfathomable how this movie retains its reputation.
