DVD Review: GAUMONT TREASURES 1897-1913

GAUMONT TREASUR

Although the Gaumont studio is not a household word in America, it was at the very forefront of motion pictures in the early years. This amazing set from Kino brings to home video over 100 seldom-seen movies from the dawn of cinema by three of the leading creators at Gaumont. One DVD each is devoted to the directors Alice Guy, Louis Feuillade and the little-remembered L╚once Perret, giving the viewer a fascinating cross-section of these early silents, with some amazing treasuresˇwould you believe color and sound movies in 1905?

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: AUSTRALIA

AUSTRALIA

Baz Luhrmann's Australia is all spectacle, screaming "epic movie" from frantic opening montage to soaring, melodramatic finale. Overstuffed? Hokey? Sure. But never a dull moment even in this, the most restrained of the down under director's oeuvre (which is like saying it's the least garish neon shade).
