Shot during the last two nights of Neil Young's 2011 Le Noise world tour, long-time fan and collaborator Jonathan Demme captures the multiple GRAMMY winner, and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee with a stunning intimacy both on stage and off. The documentary follows Young, traveling from his hometown of Omemee, Ontario to Toronto's iconic music venue, Massey Hall, in a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria, while sharing stories about his life and childhood.
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.
The definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, legend, and the man, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, never before seen performances, previously unreleased music, and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best.
Artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson has been documenting the mavericks of this woefully underexplored movement for more than forty years. The result is a stunningly intimate and inspiring portrait of their struggles to break down barriers both in the art world and society at large. Features work by and interviews with Miranda July, The Guerrilla Girls, Yvonne Rainer, Judy Chicago, Marina Abramovic, B. Ruby Rich, Hannah Wilke, Carolee Schneemann, Cindy Sherman, Yoko Ono, Marcia Tucker and other groundbreaking art world figures.
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.
The release is cause for celebration amongst Purple fans due to the rarity of material. Extensive interviews with keyboardist Jon Lord and bassist Glenn Hughes tell the tale of a band caught by circumstance into one of its most controversial, extreme and exciting eras of its long career.
DVD Review KES (CRITERION BLU-RAY)
The great British filmmaker Ken Loach sees one of his best films come to Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion. This uniquest of the now-tired coming-of-age films is a truly unforgettable masterpiece.
With free-spirited humor and soaring emotion, Korkoro is a revelatory movie about a little known chapter in WWII history. The phenomenal performances, especially Thiérrée's intensely physical efforts, truly make history come alive
DVD Review ALICE'S HOUSE
I'm a sucker for internationally acclaimed, award-winning films, and, of course, having "One of the year's 10 best!" quoted on the cover doesn't hurt either.
