Want nude dance parties? Big guests like Ilana's mom and Seth Rogen? Pervy kittens? Shrimp in the water supply? Ok, maybe not that last one—but it's all there and more in the second, seriously hot (and humid) season of the acclaimed comedy series.
The original film version of Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur's hit satire of the newspaper business comes newly mastered in HD from 35mm elements preserved by the Library of Congress, and packed with special features including a short documentary, audio commentary, and radio adaptations. Based on the hit 1928 Broadway play, and twice remade, this fast-paced farce was the prototype for the classic screwball comedies to follow.

The Lina Wertmuller Collection: The Seduction of Mimi (1972), Love & Anarchy (1973) and All Screwed Up (1974). Acclaimed as one of the leading filmmakers of the 1970s, Wertmueller demonstrates her equal skills at both rollicking comedy and rich drama with this trio of classics made during the height of her career.
Edward Furlong stars as Pete Nelson, a depressive loser waiting out the end of days in a Las Vegas hotel room. Suffering from selective amnesia, he can't remember large swathes of his past, and resorts to interrogating his multiple personalities (and a local ghost) for clues to his own existence. His search is continually interrupted by surreal hallucinations and bizarre fake movie trailers (like Reagan Force). Pete's quixotic journey leads him to an ascetic writer living in the desert (Peter Coyote), who ultimately turns both of their worlds upside down.
Stars Alicia Silverstone in a break-out performance as Cher, a beautiful and self-absorbed high school student who spends her days focused on assembling the ideal fashion ensemble, talking her way out of bad grades and searching for the perfect boyfriend. What Cher discovers is that popularity only gets you so far, looks can be deceiving and love is sometimes found where you least expect it. Whatever.

This landmark exercise in faux-documentary filmmaking comes to Blu-ray in a new transfer, preserved by the Pacific Film Archive.

At an early stage the Athenians adopted a questioning attitude toward life and began to develop new ideas. Thus, about 2,500 years ago in this city there emerged the idea of democracy, which has exerted a decisive influence on modern history
DVD Review GODS
It's a rare treat to have the ability to see a film from Peru, but this latest release from The Global Film Initiative is just that. A run throughout the international film festival circuit leads me to believe that this particular Peruvian film is well-worth a look.
