Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD. Pre-2016 Film Reviews The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez Jon Partridge @ Cinapse Excerpt: Edward James Olmos stars in this gritty, cross-cultural folk tale, new to the Criterion collection Cinderella Liberty Matthew Lucas @ From the Front Row Lady Street Fighter Jon Partridge @ Cinapse Excerpt: Lady Street Fighter is certainly an acquired taste. When the action is flowing, it’s a sleazy action romp. When the narrative kicks in, the film becomes a disjointed, befuddling affair, but there’s certainly enough weirdness help you along the way. A Matter of Life and Death […]

Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD. Pre-2016 Film Reviews Interstellar Anne Hoyt @ AARP.org/Español Excerpt: El tiempo es el gran tema en el cine de los hermanos Nolan y esa inquietud filosófica alcanza su máxima expresión visual en Interstellar.

Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD. Pre-2016 Film Reviews The Big Country Matthew Lucas @ From the Front Row Excerpt: The Big Country is perhaps one of the finest Hollywood westerns of the period. Wyler explores themes of violence, pacifism, and the ripple effects of both, asking whether or not violence has any purpose in a modern, civilized world. Dragon Inn Matthew Lucas @ From the Front Row Excerpt: If the film is unfamiliar to western audiences, surely that is because it has been widely unavailable on home video until the release of the new Criterion Blu-Ray […]

Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD. Reviews of Classic Films Andrei Rublev Hugo Gomes @ Cinematograficamente Falando … [Portuguese] Annie Hall (1977) Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan Excerpt: Annie Hall is a good film, a bit dated now perhaps, a trifle too intellectual for some I imagine, but on the whole, not a bad time. Maybe it even Seems Like Old Times… The Bed Sitting Room Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies Excerpt: This absurd anxiety nightmare about the Bomb could only have come out of the Swinging Sixties; it’s one of the weirder relics […]

Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD. Reviews of Classic Films Black God, White Devil Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com Excerpt: [VIDEO ESSAY] “Black God, White Devil” is a cinematic call for the audience to reject all political and religious doctrine in favor of an individual liberty at one with nature, something you could call sustainable. Bringing Up Baby Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com Excerpt: Howard Hawks’s “Bringing Up Baby” is the go-to example of screwball comedy that critics and film-lovers reference most as the definitive model of the genre.
