Latest DVD Reviews

LIFE IS SWEET (BLU-RAY)

LIFE IS SWEET (

Few directors capture the nuances of working class life (good, bad and otherwise) quite like Mike Leigh, and this early work of his remains one of my favorites. Criterion's new 2K transfer is impressive, and the addition of a new Leigh commentary easily push this release onto the "you need this" list.

Highly recommended.
Release Date: May 28, 2013 from The Criterion Collection

THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE (BLU-RAY)

THE DEVIL'S BAC

Arguably, Guillermo del Toro's most intimate piece, this film has long-deserved the red carpet treatment that it's been given via this Criterion Collection Blu-ray.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES (BLU-RAY)

LA CAGE AUX FOL

A grand French farce from the late 1970s - albeit one that loses some steam in the final act - looks better than ever now on Blu-Ray, but the minimal supplements aren't quite up to the usual voluminous Criterion standards.

SLACKER (BLU-RAY)

SLACKER (BLU-RA

Richard Linklater's engaging day-in-the-lives-of-many is ambitious, clever and most importantly manages to sidestep an accidental overdose of arty pretentiousness at the same time.

Highly recommended.

LORD OF THE FLIES (BLU-RAY)

LORD OF THE FLI

It's not always a guarantee that a great book becomes a great film, but that's exactly what we have here. Criterion's BD treatment of this classic (both literary and cinematic) is meticulous and attentive, making it one of my top releases of 2013.

Highly recommended.

THE ICE STORM (BLU-RAY)

Ang Lee's gripping take on the swinging 70s finally gets The Criterion Collection treatment that it deserves. Taking another look at an incredibly young Tobey Maguire, Elijah Wood, and Katie Holmes are reason enough to revisit this contemporary classic.

Criterion has delivered John Frankenheimer's frightening thriller Seconds on Blu-Ray, so get ready for a dark and disturbing journey presented in a restored 4K digital transfer. Suspenseful and creepy? You betcha.

Criterion has served up a new 2K transfer for the Blu-Ray release of Bergman's magnificent Wild Strawberries, and it has been well worth the wait.

Highly recommended.

THINGS TO COME (BLU-RAY)

THINGS TO COME

This collaboration between H.H. Wells and director William Cameron Menzies has been hailed as a science-fiction film like none before or after it. While it's difficult to believe that films haven't at least borrowed from it since its release back in 1936, thanks to The Criterion Collection, I finally get to see for myself.

SANSHO THE BAILIFF (BLU-RAY)

SANSHO THE BAIL

This classic film gets the red carpet treatment, courtesy of the best in the business, The Criterion Collection. While I've yet to experience director Kenjo Mizoguchi's legendary movie, this Blu-ray disc is likely the best way to do so.

PIERRE ETAIX (BLU-RAY)

PIERRE ETAIX (B

I'd honestly never heard of Pierre Etaix prior to learning of this Criterion Collection release, but after hearing him compared to legendary physical comedians Jacques Tati and Jerry Lewis, I can't wait to delve into all eight of the films in this robust, nicely-packaged set.

MINISTRY OF FEAR (BLU-RAY)

MINISTRY OF FEA

Though not the definitive Fritz Lang by a longshot there is still a lot of noir grooviness here as Ray Milland has to deal with Nazi spies, deadly seances and one big cake.

Recommended.

BADLANDS (BLU-RAY)

BADLANDS (BLU-R

Watching Terrence Malick's early-career classic with a young Sissy Spacek and Martin Sheen never gets old, as there's always some tiny nuance to discover. Now, thanks to The Criterion Collection, the film sports a brand new 4K digital transfer, which is all the excuse I need to explore the film yet again.

THE BLOB (BLU-RAY)

THE BLOB (BLU-R

Sure, it's stiffly acted and features some of the oldest teenagers ever seen on film, but as a trend-bucking representative sample of 1950s American-made "giant monster" flicks this is a genre classic. Plus, Criterion's Blu-Ray treatment is wonderfully done. Highly recommended.

THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (BLU-RAY)

THE MAN WHO KNE

One of Hitchcock's early thrillers and Peter Lorre's first English-language picture, this is sure to be another excellent effort by The Criterion Collection. I certainly can't wait to see what they've done with the video restoration.

TWO-LANE BLACKTOP (BLU-RAY)

TWO-LANE BLACKT

Even if you're not a gearhead (and I most certainly am not) there's an undeniable sense of self-discovery and purpose in Two-Lane Blacktop, a stripped down, revved up love story about men, cars, women, life.

Recommended.
