Latest DVD Reviews

THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE (BLU-RAY)

THE DEVIL'S BAC

Arguably, Guillermo del Toro's most intimate piece, this film has long-deserved the red carpet treatment that it's been given via this Criterion Collection Blu-ray.
Release Date: July 30, 2013 from The Criterion Collection

SANSHO THE BAILIFF (BLU-RAY)

SANSHO THE BAIL

This classic film gets the red carpet treatment, courtesy of the best in the business, The Criterion Collection. While I've yet to experience director Kenjo Mizoguchi's legendary movie, this Blu-ray disc is likely the best way to do so.
Release Date: February 26, 2013 from The Criterion Collection

PIERRE ETAIX (BLU-RAY)

PIERRE ETAIX (B

I'd honestly never heard of Pierre Etaix prior to learning of this Criterion Collection release, but after hearing him compared to legendary physical comedians Jacques Tati and Jerry Lewis, I can't wait to delve into all eight of the films in this robust, nicely-packaged set.

THE TIN DRUM (BLU-RAY)

THE TIN DRUM (B

I'm excited to finally see this infamous, controversial film, and, given The Criterion Collection's involvement, this disc will make it well worth the wait.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

ANATOMY OF A MURDER (BLU-RAY)

ANATOMY OF A MU

Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder is as entertaining as it is thoughtful about the limits of the law in grasping human nature. It feels fresh and mature even fifty years later, and stands as one of the best courtroom dramas in film history.

BELLE DE JOUR (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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

LIFE DURING WARTIME (Criterion Blu-ray)

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.
