PR From Up on Poppy Hill on Blu-ray, DVD & VOD Sep 3

From Up on Popp

Dazzling, hand-drawn and set in Yokohama in 1963. Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II and preparing to host the Olympics. The mood is one of both optimism and conflict as the young generation struggles to throw off the shackles of a troubled past. Against this backdrop of hope and change, a friendship begins to blossom between high school students Umi and Shun - but a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart.

DVD Review GRAY'S ANATOMY (BLU-RAY)

GRAY'S ANATOMY

I haven't seen this wonderful film since its first home video release, and I can't wait to relive that experience all over again. Steven Soderbergh has come a long way since, but this is still regarded as one of his best works.

PR Documentary Bright Leaves available on iTunes

Documentary Bri

A subjective, autobiographical meditation on the allure of cigarettes and their troubling legacy for the state of North Carolina. It's about loss and preservation, addiction and denial. And it's also about filmmaking - home movies, documentary, and fiction filmmaking - as the filmmaker fences with the legacy of an obscure Hollywood melodrama that is purportedly based on his great-grandfather's life.

PR Criterion Collection September Titles

Criterion Colle

This September, two of the greatest, as well as the most unorthodox, films about World War II will come to the Criterion Collection, in both Blu-ray and DVD editions. Terrence Malick's star-studded (Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Woody Harrelson), multiple-Oscar-nominated James Jones adaptation The Thin Red Line is a staggering accomplishment, a profoundly moving, existential trip to war's heart of darkness, set during the battle for Guadalcanal. And Nagisa Oshima's extraordinarily bold Japanese POW camp drama Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, starring David Bowie as a mysterious prisoner targeted by an obsessive camp commander, is one of the controversial director's most acclaimed and beloved films. Plus, two jazzy sixties hits—Godard's Breathless, with Jean-Paul Belmondo, celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, and Stanley Donen's Charade, starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant—come out in new Criterion Blu-ray editions.
