Philip Concannon @ Mostly Film

Sunday in New York

Kristen Lopez @ Journeys in Classic Film

Recent Home Video Releases

Compañeros

Budd Wilkins @ Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: Get radicalized with Compañeros in a sterling new Blu-ray transfer from Blue Underground that’s bolstered by the inclusion of an engaging commentary track.

The Conformist

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

Flesh and Blood

Budd Wilkins @ Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: Flesh and Blood, Paul Verhoeven’s mischievous gob of spit in the face of chivalry, gets a problematic HD transfer and a spate of twice-told supplements from Kino.

Touch of the Light

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

Under Fire

Kristen Lopez @ Awards Circuit

Other Reviews from 2012 and earlier

Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County

James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture

  • Excerpt: Cinema Fearité presents ‘Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County’ – Aliens Crashing Thanksgiving Dinner In An Early Found Footage Debacle

Bushido Man

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: …lured me in with the promise that it would mix food porn with classic kung fu fights, sort of ‘Iron Chef’ meets The ‘Man with the Iron Fists.’ The actual experience was more like watching MMA bouts interrupted by Ramen noodle commercials.

Copying Beethoven

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

The Enforcer

Edgar Chaput @ Sound on Sight

  • Excerpt: The Enforcer is a captivating piece of entertainment that chooses to go about sharing its tale of the birth of a new nefarious underworld business model with a creative and challenging plot structure. It trusts the audience will not mind the complex route taken to reach the eventual end game, one that spreads the spotlight on a great number of actors surrounding legend Humphrey Boggart.

Mr. Jones

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: The question is whether ‘Mr. Jones’‘ ramshackle construction is the result of sloppy craftsmanship, or a reflection of an unreliable, unstable narrator.

Remember Last Night?

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

Song of Norway

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

Tango & Cash

Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire

  • Excerpt: Nothing makes a helluva lot of sense in Tango & Cash, but you don’t get much of an impression that anyone was concerned with such matters as logic — when you’ve got Stallone and Russell in a buddy movie, you can probably put in a bunch of oddball touches and gay subtext without anybody paying much mind, so long as they’re surrounded by the requisite number of building explosions and wacky one-liners.
