DVD Review ADRIFT
This highly-acclaimed Vietnamese film is an erotic drama that gives us an inside look at what life is like in present-day Hanoi. Hopefully it's as appealing as the image on the case's cover.
DVD Review INSIGNIFICANCE (Criterion Blu-ray)
It's always great to see a Nicolas Roeg film for the first time, but it's even better when it stars Theresa Russell and is contained on a Criterion Collection Blu-ray disc.
DVD Review THE GREAT DICTATOR
Criterion spruces up Chaplin's first talking picture, an extended, impassioned, heartfelt kick in the ass of Adolf Hitler.
DVD Review THE GIRL
Very little is said about this Swedish thriller on the DVD cover, but the ominous, creepy picture more than likely says a lot for what's in store here. Then again, given the ambiguity, I could be totally wrong.
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 ROMAN POLANSKI: WANTED AND DESIRED
One need not excuse or minimize what happened between Roman Polanski and a 13-year-old girl in Jack Nicholson's pool in 1977 to recognize that Polanski has led an extraordinarily complicated and morally challenging life. He escaped the Third Reich; his wife, 8 1/2 months pregnant with their first child, was brutally slaughtered by disciples of Charles Manson; he's had enough sorrow for a handful of lives, though that doesn't make it all right for his Humbert Humbert streak, thanking heaven for little girls. This fair-minded and gripping documentary is an extraordinarily thorough look at what happened to Polanski in Southern California in the late 1970s, both in a Santa Monica courtroom and in the court of public opinion. It's a morality play with all sort of shades of gray, and it's a fascinating watch.
