I want to pretend that the great Brian De Palma never directed this tired, forgettable thriller. But then I remember that he did and I dislike this one even more.

DVD Review LIFE IS SWEET (BLU-RAY)

LIFE IS SWEET (

Few directors capture the nuances of working class life (good, bad and otherwise) quite like Mike Leigh, and this early work of his remains one of my favorites. Criterion's new 2K transfer is impressive, and the addition of a new Leigh commentary easily push this release onto the "you need this" list.

Highly recommended.

DVD Review THE 39 STEPS (BLU-RAY)

THE 39 STEPS (B

Alfred Hitchcock was already a successful director when he adapted John Buchan's mystery thriller The Thirty-Nine Step, but this picture is where we see many of the staples of his later career come to fruition and gel in a way that few directors before or since have managed to accomplish. Criterion does this seminal movie proud in a loaded special edition that features a lovely and clean high-definition transfer of very difficult source material.

DVD Review LES VAMPIRES (BLU-RAY)

LES VAMPIRES (B

Louis Feuillade's ten-part crime thriller serial from 1915/1916 remains a hellzapoppin' funhouse ride nearly 100 years later, but one character in particular steals the 7-hour show.

Recommended.

DVD Review DAVID LEAN DIRECTS NOEL COWARD (BLU-RAY)

DAVID LEAN DIRE

Criterion's Blu-Ray boxset of four David Lean/Noel Coward films from the 1940s is a winner on all fronts. The films are a varied lot in terms of storylines - ranging from war's brutalities to family drama to playful ghosts to extramarital affairs, but each are awash in Coward's raw wordplay and Lean's visual talents.

Recommended.

PR Shinsuke Ogawa's Red Persimmons Out on DVD

Shinsuke Ogawa'

From legendary Japanese director Shinsuke Ogawa (A Summer in Narita, Peasants of the Second Fortress, The Building of the Iwayama Tower) and his disciple, feminist filmmaker Peng Xiolian (Shanghai Story, A Woman of Substance). Red Persimmons is a visually elegant paean to the cultivation and harvesting of the sweet red fruit in the tiny Japanese village of Kaminoyama. The film's larger subject, however, is the disappearance of Japan's traditional culture, the end of a centuries-old way of life. Begun by Ogawa in the late 1980s.
