DVD Review IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (BLU-RAY)

IN THE MOOD FOR

The great Wong Kar-wai's masterpiece was given the proper Criterion Collection treatment on DVD a few years ago, and is one of their banner releases. It now shows up on a Criterion Blu-ray disc, and I'd be shocked if it wasn't even more special than the first time.

DVD Review FEAR AND DESIRE (BLU-RAY)

FEAR AND DESIRE

The legendary Stanley Kubrick's first feature film finally makes its way to Blu-ray, after being virtually unseen since it first showed up in theaters back in 1953. The fact that Kino has thrown in a documentary short by Kubrick as well, makes this realease one of the easier purchasing decisions of the year.

DVD Review ROSETTA (BLU-RAY)

ROSETTA (BLU-RA

It's great to see The Criterion Collection continue to release relatively obscure foreign films like this, regardless of their box office numbers. It would be a shock if this wasn't yet another one of their excellent Blu-ray efforts.

DVD Review THE GOLD RUSH (BLU-RAY)

THE GOLD RUSH (

I'm ashamed to say I'm never seen a movie either starring Charlie Chaplin or directed by him. What better way to finally break the seal on this cinema legend than with what many consider to be a comedic masterwork.

DVD Review A HOLLIS FRAMPTON ODYSSEY (BLU-RAY)

A HOLLIS FRAMPT

The Criterion Collection has gone the avant-garde short film route before, so I'm sure their collection of iconic American filmmaker Hollis Frampton's best works is sure to dazzle film fans on Blu-ray.

DVD Review WORLD ON A WIRE (BLU-RAY)

WORLD ON A WIRE

This is one of those classics of foreign cinema that I've known about since I was a kid, but have never actually seen. What better way to experience all 3-plus hours of this masterpiece for the first time than via a Criterion Collection Blu-ray.

The ageless Catherine Deneuve gives one of her most remarkable performances in Luis Bunuel's surreal classic. I can't wait to see how great it looks on a Criterion Collection Blu-ray disc.

DVD Review IDENTIFICATION OF A WOMAN (Criterion Blu-ray)

IDENTIFICATION

This film, directed by the great Italian auteur, Michelangelo Antonioni, isn't as popular as his other classics. Now that it's on Blu-ray from Criterion, hopefully more cinema buffs will discover that this film deserves equal, if not more acclaim.

DVD Review ISLAND OF LOST SOULS (Criterion Blu-ray)

ISLAND OF LOST

This classic take on H.G. Wells's book, The Island of Dr. Moreau should make it easy to forget the more recent Val Kilmer/Marlon Brando adaptation of the same story, and then some.

DVD Review IF.... (Criterion Blu-ray)

IF.... (Criteri

Only a few years before Malcolm McDowell did a little film with Stanley Kubrick, he starred in this look at an anarchic society in Britain. Sure, we've seen movies set in boarding schools before, but this one is heralded as one of the best.

DVD Review SECRET SUNSHINE (Criterion Blu-ray)

SECRET SUNSHINE

This drama promises to be yet another example of just how great Korean cinema is. Venerable director Lee Chang-dong is one of Korea's best filmmakers, and with actress Jeon Do-yeon leading the way, this has to be great.

DVD Review LIFE DURING WARTIME (Criterion Blu-ray)

LIFE DURING WAR

This brilliant follow-up to Solondz's masterpiece, Happiness is nearly half the running time of that film, but packs just as much punch. Plus, it sure doesn't hurt that it's being released by the Criterion Collection.

Arguably Catherine Breillat's best work, this gripping, thought-provoking dramas might seem languid during some points. Rest assured that, despite this slowness, sticking around to the end is more than worth it.
