TO CATCH A THIEF (BLU-RAY)

TO CATCH A THIE

The latest in the recent wave of Alfred Hitchcock films to hit Blu-ray, this one simply has to be seen for the pairing of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly alone.

VIETNAM IN HD (BLU-RAY)

VIETNAM IN HD (

The History Channel does these sort of productions very well, and this one is no exception. This four+ hour crash course on the war in Vietnam tells a number personal stories and includes some stunning archival footage, presented in high-definition.

Recommended.

THE BROKEN TOWER

THE BROKEN TOWE

James Franco went right from a Best Actor Oscar nomination to the director's chair for this true story of Poet, Hart Crane. Here's hoping it's at least a little more engaging than his acting turn as Allen Ginsberg a few years ago.

HUGO (BLU-RAY+DVD)

HUGO (BLU-RAY+D

Martin Scorsese's love letter to the magic of cinema - wrapped in the thin guise of being a "family film" - has arrived in a 2-disc Blu-Ray/DVD combo from Paramount. Though a bit light in the supplement department the BD audio/video transfers are reference-quality.

Highly recommended.

ADRIFT (CHOI VOI)

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.

THE DEVIL'S ROCK

THE DEVIL'S ROC

Don't be fooled by the awesomeness of the cover-art-image-that-doesn't-appear-anywhere-in-the-movie, because The Devil's Rock is still a terrific under-the-radar horror film about Nazis and demons. You like horror? You should really love this.

Highly recommended.

JACK KEROUAC - KING OF THE BEATS

JACK KEROUAC -

Jack Kerouac - King of the Beats delves into the history and mythology of a unique figure in American and world literary history. With the jazz and stream of his consciousness, Kerouac brought to life a slice of the American psyche. This documentary uses a free-form style to present the many facets of this literary icon and succeeds in give us a fascinating impression. A good answer to the question, "Who is Jack Kerouac and why do so many people care about him?"

LA JETÉE/SANS SOLEIL (BLU-RAY)

LA JETÉE/SANS S

Chris Marker's 28-minute 1962 film La Jetée is the centerpiece of this Blu-Ray doublebill from Criterion, which also features his full-length 1983 film Sans Soleil. What makes this such an interesting release is the way these two very different films so perfectly intertwine - made over a period of decades - into a complex expression of time, memory and remembering.

WORLD ON A WIRE (BLU-RAY)

WORLD ON A WIRE

This is one of those classics of foreign cinema that I've known about since I was a kid, but have never actually seen. What better way to experience all 3-plus hours of this masterpiece for the first time than via a Criterion Collection Blu-ray.

ANATOMY OF A MURDER (BLU-RAY)

ANATOMY OF A MU

Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder is as entertaining as it is thoughtful about the limits of the law in grasping human nature. It feels fresh and mature even fifty years later, and stands as one of the best courtroom dramas in film history.

COLD SWEAT (Sudor Frío)

COLD SWEAT

There’s a fun movie to be made from the clever premise, and director Adrián García Bogliano has a good time with a low budget. Still, the gaps in logic and dumb protagonists make for a horror film that’s hard to get worked up over.

THE INCREASINGLY POOR DECISIONS OF TODD MARGARET: SERIES ONE

THE INCREASINGL

Series one may only last six 22-minute episodes but this IFC series chronicles a wickedly exponential downward spiral of bad luck and poor judgement. Damn, it's really funny, too.

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.

WWII IN 3D (BLU-RAY)

WWII IN 3D (BLU

It's hard to believe that a ton of information about a huge era in U.S. History can be crammed into a 46-minute documentary, but I have a feeling that this disc is all about the spectacle of 3D technology.

GODZILLA (BLU-RAY)

GODZILLA (BLU-R

Criterion pays long overdue scholarly homage to one of the classic monsters in all of cinema, and the inclusion of both the original 1954 Japanese film and the laughable 1956 American "reworking" only reinforces the fact that you have not seen Godzilla until you have seen Ishiro Honda's somber cautionary tale of H-bomb testing and the giant monster destruction it awakens.

Highly recommended.

THE LADY VANISHES (BLU-RAY)

THE LADY VANISH

This 1938 mixed bag mystery/thriller/comedy from Alfred Hitchcock - his last British-made film before Hollywood beckoned - remains one of his most enjoyable and Criterion has seen fit to release it on Blu-Ray finally. While undeniably corny and hammy at times by today's standards, The Lady Vanishes retains its own special ageless entertainment value through solid direction, snappy dialogue and a cast of colorful characters. This is a great example of the way they used to make them.

Highly recommended.

BOMBAY BEACH

BOMBAY BEACH

Bombay Beach tells the stories of the residents of a once-thriving tourist resort now lost to the world. Director Alma Har'el's film, with its gauzy, dreamlike quality and choreographed sequences is at once beautiful and deeply problematic.

CONTAGION (BLU-RAY)

CONTAGION (BLU-

Steven Soderbergh makes a different kind of a global viral pandemic film, one that focuses more on fear and research rather than gore and goo. A large, talented ensemble cast and the downward spiral of humanity makes this one a bleak, uneasy and scary thriller.

NAKED (BLU-RAY)

NAKED (BLU-RAY)

In a film filled with a gaggle of talented, raw performances it is the intensity of David Thewlis in the coarse lead role that consistently propels Mike Leigh's Naked, commanding our attention to every sarcastic, caustic, brutal and philosophical utterance he delivers. Criterion's Blu-Ray transfer of Leigh's controversial 1993 release is lovely in its starkness, besting their 2005 SD disc by leaps and bounds.

Highly recommended.
