DVD Review HOUSE OF PLEASURES:
Heavily represented on 2011 "Best Of" lists, this French film promises to be both an erotic and visual treat, boasting one of the largest casts in recent memory.
DVD Review 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.
DVD Review GIGI (BLU-RAY)
After going my whole life without seeing this Best Picture Oscar winner, it took Warner's Blu-ray release for me to finally give it a chance.
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 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?
