SON OF MORNING

SON OF MORNING

This is an intriguing premise, but I have a bad feeling that overdone attempts at quirkiness might be the film's downfall. However, the casting is intriguing, to say the least.

THE BANG BANG CLUB (BLU-RAY)

THE BANG BANG C

This certainly isn't the fist apartheid drama we've ever seen, but an interesting cast and decent film festival pedigree ramps up the optimism quite a bit.

IDENTIFICATION OF A WOMAN (Criterion Blu-ray)

IDENTIFICATION

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 FAMILY TREE (BLU-RAY)

THE FAMILY TREE

Not sure what to expect from this indie dark comedy, but with a huge, talented (for the most part) ensemble cast, and a ridiculous-looking Dermot Mulroney, this promises to at least be interesting stuff.
Release Date: November 21, 2011 from E1 Entertainment

ASTRON-6 COLLECTION

ASTRON-6 COLLEC

I'll admit to never having heard of Astron-6 before receiving this new DVD collection, but, with Troma responsible for this release, I'm sure we're all in for plenty of fun, insane depravity.

ISLAND OF LOST SOULS (Criterion Blu-ray)

ISLAND OF LOST

This classic take on H.G. Wells's book, The Island of Dr. Moreau should make it easy to forget the more recent Val Kilmer/Marlon Brando adaptation of the same story, and then some.

IN A GLASS CAGE (BLU-RAY) (TRAS EL CRISTAL)

IN A GLASS CAGE

This cult classic is among the most notorious art house shockers ever made. Considered by some to push the envelope even more than the likes of Pasolini's Salo, there's no better time to check it out than now, thanks to this packed Blu-ray release.

IF.... (Criterion Blu-ray)

IF.... (Criteri

Only a few years before Malcolm McDowell did a little film with Stanley Kubrick, he starred in this look at an anarchic society in Britain. Sure, we've seen movies set in boarding schools before, but this one is heralded as one of the best.

"FACE TO FACE"

While not the first of Ingmar Bergman' films to come to mind when discussing his directorial career, this Oscar-nominated classic is arguably as important and powerful as those considered his absolute best.

LOUIE BLUIE

LOUIE BLUIE

The Criterion Collection comes through again and offers us an obscure documentary from acclaimed director Terry Zwigoff. This is really going to appeal to fans of both Zwigoff and jazz.

SECRET SUNSHINE (Criterion Blu-ray)

SECRET SUNSHINE

This drama promises to be yet another example of just how great Korean cinema is. Venerable director Lee Chang-dong is one of Korea's best filmmakers, and with actress Jeon Do-yeon leading the way, this has to be great.

BREAKING GLASS

BREAKING GLASS

With a cover that screams Glam Rock-era David Bowie, this flick promises to be a real treat. Having only heard of this sparingly through the years, it's great that Olive Films have finally made it widely available for the music-loving masses.

The first season of one of the hottest and most imitated shows on cable finally makes its way to DVD. What could possibly be lurking in that box in this abandoned storage locker? Who doesn't love a treasure hunt?

THE NEW YORK RIPPER Special Edition

THE NEW YORK RI

Italian exploitation master took a step away from the supernatural for this rather standard (relatively speaking) serial killer flick. He didn't, however, tone down on the sex, violence, and, most importantly, gore.

LIFE DURING WARTIME (Criterion Blu-ray)

LIFE DURING WAR

This brilliant follow-up to Solondz's masterpiece, Happiness is nearly half the running time of that film, but packs just as much punch. Plus, it sure doesn't hurt that it's being released by the Criterion Collection.

JACKBOOTS ON WHITEHALL

JACKBOOTS ON WH

Really, all there is to know about this going in is that it's a British political satire that uses puppets to tell it's story. Eat your heart out, Matt Stone and Trey Parker!

HIGH AND LOW (Criterion Blu-ray)

HIGH AND LOW

Toshiro Mifune as a true master of the universe, in Akira Kurosawa's brutally taut crime story. On Blu-ray from our friends at Criterion, and it's never looked better.

TETSUO: THE BULLET MAN

TETSUO: THE BUL

Following the original Tetsuo film was a tall-enough order, but this is the third entry and here's hoping we're in store for more of the same bizarre, machine-centric madness.

BLACK MOON (CRITERION BLU-RAY)
