PR Jewel as June Carter in Ring of Fire on DVD Jun 4

Jewel as June C

June Carter Cash wrote Johnny Cash's most famous song, 'Ring of Fire,' while she was falling in love with the fascinating yet difficult musician. The film explores that volatile relationship, as seen through the eyes of their son, John, as well as profiles the woman who patiently supported one of country music's biggest stars as she found her own idiosyncratic path to stardom. A born performer, June was country music royalty, as part of the Carter Family, whose music was heard all over America. Later, she and Cash performed onstage together and lived an exalted yet turbulent life, maintaining their lifelong bond and a semblance of a home life for their son, largely due to the strength and perseverance of June's great love.

PR Jess Franco's Female Vampire & Exorcism on Blu-ray Oct 16

Jess Franco's F

For years, Jess Franco has been a favorite of Euro horror enthusiasts -- for the dreamlike tone of his films and the sheer audacity with which he indulges his morbid sexual curiosity. With the release of these Blu-ray editions, Kino Lorber brings Franco to a wider audience, and places him alongside Mario Bava and Jean Rollin in the pantheon of cult directors ripe for rediscovery.

PR Todd Haynes' Poison: 20th Anniversary Edition on DVD Jun 21

Todd Haynes' Po

Inspired by the writings of Jean Genet, Poison deftly interweaves a trio of transgressive tales that build toward a devastating climax: "Hero," shot in a mock tabloid-TV style, tells a bizarre story of suburban patricide and a miraculous flight from justice; "Horror," filmed like a delirious '50s B-movie melodrama, is a gothic tale of a mad sex experiment which unleashes a disfiguring plague; "Homo" explores the obsessive sexual relationship between two prison inmates. A runaway hit which made national headlines when it was attacked by conservative figures including Dick Armey, Ralph Reed and minister Donald Wildmon, Poison is audacious, unforgettable and wildly entertaining.

The Criterion Collection comes through again and offers us an obscure documentary from acclaimed director Terry Zwigoff. This is really going to appeal to fans of both Zwigoff and jazz.

DVD Review CRASH: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

CRASH: THE COMP

While not the best show on TV or DVD, Crash can be diverting and fun in a pulpy kind of way, like a decent detective novel. But, it seems like there should be more.

DVD Review PIGS, PIMPS, & PROSTITUTES

If the title of this box set and its Criterion Collection seal of approval aren't enough to entice you, having three integral parts of the Japanese New Wave in one awesome package should be more than enough.
