DVD Review ROSETTA (BLU-RAY)
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 RETURN
Linda Cardellini has been laying relatively low since her stint on ER, but, according to buzz surrounding this film's limited theatrical run, she's back with a vengeance. A strong supporting cast sure doesn't diminish my high expectations for this film either.

DVD Review THE GOLDEN AGE OF TELEVISION
Three discs that demonstrate that on the little box, they still don't make 'em like they used to.
DVD Review GAUMONT TREASURES 1897-1913
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 LČonce Perret, giving the viewer a fascinating cross-section of these early silents, with some amazing treasuresówould you believe color and sound movies in 1905?
DVD Review CHANGING LANES
A nifty thriller begins as an allegorical look at road rage before sinking into a trite and unsatisfying final act.
DVD Review TRUE BLOOD: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball stretches metaphor to the breaking point with HBO's True Blood, which posits that a world in which vampires "come out of the coffin" and fight for their civil rights would look a lot like Twilight, only with lots more nudity. Lots and lots more nudity.
