NEW TO THEATRES...
* Wanderlust, the new one from David Wain, with a script co-written by Ken Marino and featuring the always pleasant Paul Rudd. Funny enough, if not a gut buster.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* La Jetee/Sans Soleil, a double-bill from Chris Marker now on Blu-Ray. (Also at DVD Talk)
* Three Outlaw Samurai, a rollicking samurai adventure from 1964, directed by Hideo Gosha.
* Tiny Furniture, the debut from Lena Dunham. Er, uh...well, not even Criterion can win them all.
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* Automobile / L'Automobile, an inconsistent drama notable for being one of Anna Magnani's last roles.
* The Hour, a BBC miniseries centered around a television news program in the 1950s. With Ben Whishaw and Dominic West.
* Lady and the Tramp: Diamond Edition, one of Disney's best is back and looking better than ever.
* Notorious, one of my favorite Hitchock films gets a high-def upgrade. Starring Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman.
* On the Bowery: The Films of Lionel Rogosin, vol. 1, featuring Rogosin's seminal documentary and two other efforts from the pioneering independent director.
* Shakespeare in Love, the Tom Stoppard-penned star turn for Gwyneth Paltrow.
* A Soldier's Story, an antiquated race drama from Norman Jewison, with a young Denzel in a supporting role.
I really like this illustration some one did of the female lead from The Hour, but can't find any credits or any other similar portraits. If you know, can you leave a comment or drop a line?
