Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD from 2011 and earlier.
10 Years Lost in Translation
Joseph Proimakis @ Popaganda [Greek]
- Excerpt: 10 years after its first screening, the film that brought Sofia Copolla into the mainstream, has a lot of unforgetable moments. But there’s one more unforgettable than others.
3 Films by Roberto Rossellini Starring Ingrid Bergman
An American Hippie in Israel
Apocalypse Now Redux
- Excerpt: Casi una obra maestra.
The Big Parade
A Boy and His Dog
Chucky: The Complete Collection
Dave Chappelle’s Block Party
The Devil Bat
- Excerpt: Fight Club is one of those in-your-face, take-no-prisoners manifestos that has something say and does it with style and panache.
Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
House of Wax (1953)
A Letter to Three Wives
A Mother Should Be Loved
Prince Of Darkness
The Singing Ringing Tree
- Excerpt: …a rose-colored, romanticized view of the Dark Ages glimpsed through a hole in the Iron Curtain. ‘The Singing Ringing Tree’ is known in former East Germany (where it was a blockbuster hit in the 1950s) and Britain (where it became a cult item through TV screenings in the 1960s), but this spectacular curiosity still needs to be brought to the attention of the rest of the world.
- Excerpt: In some ways, I’m not surprised that Kongkiat’s film might have have trouble finding an audience. The film is by turns perhaps too arty for the gorehounds, while the some of the art house crowd would undoubtedly be disturbed by some very graphic violence.
The Stranger (1946)
They Kill Only Their Masters
Three Films By Roberto Rossellini Starring Ingrid Bergman
Under Wraps (1997)
- Excerpt: I’m not going to make any claims of greatness for this effort, but it’s a solid version of exactly what it wants to be.
