Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD.

Reviews of Classic Films

3 Women

Jamie S. Rich @ Criterion Confessions

  • Excerpt: Because 3 Women, which Altman wrote and produced under his own Lion’s Gate banner as well as directed, is not a story that works on paper, it’s not a script with a traditional plot. Its act breaks are more like psychotic breaks, in that the movie transforms twice, shifting when its main characters face trauma, swapping their roles, and yet never stopping to explain.

Screaming Mimi

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

The Wizard of Oz

Kristen Lopez @ Cinema Sentries

Recent Home Video Releases

Once Upon a Time in Shanghai

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Call it “kung fu noir”.

Other Reviews from 2012 and earlier

Britannia Hospital

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: Scattershot, though in a pleasant way, Britannia Hospital is the least (and the least surreal) of Lindsay Anderson and Malcolm McDowell’s “Mick Travis” trilogy.

The Cars That Ate Paris

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: Zooms back and forth between understated comedy and looming horror, constantly grinding its gears.
