HEARTLESS

A weird, engaging, criminally underseen import, this is a great vehicle for Jim Sturgess. There are plenty of shocking twists and turns that take this story to some extremely dark places.

DOUBLE TAKE

DOUBLE TAKE

This unique blend of archival footage and "new" material promises to be one of the most unique film experiences to come along in quite some time. And in this era of very little originality, that's saying something.

FUNNY OR DIE PRESENTS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

FUNNY OR DIE PR

BASIL DEARDEN'S LONDON UNDERGROUND (ECLIPSE SERIES 25)

BASIL DEARDEN'S

Even given some weaknesses, the four films of this collection are never less than competent and entertaining. In their own quiet ways, this neglected director may have to guide Britain through a tumultuous time into a more tolerant post-war world.

THE GIRL

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.

THE MAGICIAN (BLU-RAY) (ANSIKTET)

NIGHT COURT: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON
