Although the Gaumont studio is not a household word in America, it was at the very forefront of motion pictures in the early years. This amazing set from Kino brings to home video over 100 seldom-seen movies from the dawn of cinema by three of the leading creators at Gaumont. One DVD each is devoted to the directors Alice Guy, Louis Feuillade and the little-remembered L╚once Perret, giving the viewer a fascinating cross-section of these early silents, with some amazing treasuresˇwould you believe color and sound movies in 1905?

The fall of the Tsars has proven to be fertile ground for filmic drama, but one of the earlier of these efforts was John Barrymore's Tempest, produced only a decade after the events depicted. With a story written by a Russian, and a screenplay co-written by an uncredited Erich von Stroheim, it certainly promises to be interesting.

Baz Luhrmann's Australia is all spectacle, screaming "epic movie" from frantic opening montage to soaring, melodramatic finale. Overstuffed? Hokey? Sure. But never a dull moment even in this, the most restrained of the down under director's oeuvre (which is like saying it's the least garish neon shade).
