Everybody loves a good con, as long as they aren't the victim of it. This is the true tale of the most notorious con men to come out of Brazil...or I could be trying to pull a fast one on you.

COLD SWEAT (Sudor Frío)

COLD SWEAT

There’s a fun movie to be made from the clever premise, and director Adrián García Bogliano has a good time with a low budget. Still, the gaps in logic and dumb protagonists make for a horror film that’s hard to get worked up over.

THE INCREASINGLY POOR DECISIONS OF TODD MARGARET: SERIES ONE

THE INCREASINGL

Series one may only last six 22-minute episodes but this IFC series chronicles a wickedly exponential downward spiral of bad luck and poor judgement. Damn, it's really funny, too.

WWII IN 3D (BLU-RAY)

WWII IN 3D (BLU

It's hard to believe that a ton of information about a huge era in U.S. History can be crammed into a 46-minute documentary, but I have a feeling that this disc is all about the spectacle of 3D technology.

GODZILLA (BLU-RAY)

GODZILLA (BLU-R

Criterion pays long overdue scholarly homage to one of the classic monsters in all of cinema, and the inclusion of both the original 1954 Japanese film and the laughable 1956 American "reworking" only reinforces the fact that you have not seen Godzilla until you have seen Ishiro Honda's somber cautionary tale of H-bomb testing and the giant monster destruction it awakens.

Highly recommended.

THE LADY VANISHES (BLU-RAY)

THE LADY VANISH

This 1938 mixed bag mystery/thriller/comedy from Alfred Hitchcock - his last British-made film before Hollywood beckoned - remains one of his most enjoyable and Criterion has seen fit to release it on Blu-Ray finally. While undeniably corny and hammy at times by today's standards, The Lady Vanishes retains its own special ageless entertainment value through solid direction, snappy dialogue and a cast of colorful characters. This is a great example of the way they used to make them.

Highly recommended.

BOMBAY BEACH

BOMBAY BEACH

Bombay Beach tells the stories of the residents of a once-thriving tourist resort now lost to the world. Director Alma Har'el's film, with its gauzy, dreamlike quality and choreographed sequences is at once beautiful and deeply problematic.

CONTAGION (BLU-RAY)

CONTAGION (BLU-

Steven Soderbergh makes a different kind of a global viral pandemic film, one that focuses more on fear and research rather than gore and goo. A large, talented ensemble cast and the downward spiral of humanity makes this one a bleak, uneasy and scary thriller.

Recommended.

HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT'S INFERNO (Blu-ray)

Given that this film began shooting almost 50 years ago is intriguing enough. Flicker Alley has upped the ante by including a second disc of supplementary material that allows us to study this compelling project long after the film itself is over.

NAKED (BLU-RAY)

NAKED (BLU-RAY)

In a film filled with a gaggle of talented, raw performances it is the intensity of David Thewlis in the coarse lead role that consistently propels Mike Leigh's Naked, commanding our attention to every sarcastic, caustic, brutal and philosophical utterance he delivers. Criterion's Blu-Ray transfer of Leigh's controversial 1993 release is lovely in its starkness, besting their 2005 SD disc by leaps and bounds.

Highly recommended.

IDENTIFICATION OF A WOMAN (Criterion Blu-ray)

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.

DEEP RED Uncensored English Version

DEEP RED

Blue Underground has lovingly doled out the uncensored English version of what is likely Dario Argento's best film (right up there with Suspiria), and the result is a gorgeous image transfer that make this one seem almost brand new.

If you've ever wondered why Argento is so revered by so many, this would be the disc to use as your primer.

Highly recommended.

THE GIRL BY THE LAKE (LA RAGAZZA DEL LAGO)

THE GIRL BY THE

Here's a tight little Italian murder mystery, spearheaded by a determined yet sleepy-eyed inspector. There are plenty of suspects to go around, a satisfying resolution and a sidestory that is just as compelling as the main mystery.

Recommended.

SALO, OR THE 12

Pasolini's notorious final film, one for whom the audience is likely self-selecting. Criterion's Blu-ray release has it looking as good as possible, and makes as persuasive a case for it being a masterpiece as one can.

DIABOLIQUE (BLU-RAY)

DIABOLIQUE (BLU

Criterion has made me quite the happy movie geek by issuing a pair of Henri-Georges Clouzot masterworks on Blu-Ray, beginning in 2009 with the release of The Wages of Fear and in 2011 with Diabolique. This is a beautifully crafted suspense film, daring and intelligent, a tightly wound mystery that has served as the foundation and inspiration for countless imitators over the following decades since its release in 1955.

Highly recommended, and one of my favorite releases of 2011.
