Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD.

Reviews of Classic Films

The Blues Brothers

Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews

  • Excerpt: Over time The Blues Brothers has grown in stature to become a cult classic. Separated from the storied Hollywood backstory it’s easy to see why.

The French Connection

Sarah D Bunting @ Tomato Nation

Harakiri

Donald Jay Levit @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Imitation of Life

Jonathan Richards @ www.jonrichardsplace.com

  • Excerpt: You may snicker at the endless succession of designer clothes and designer interiors, the hairdos that greet the morning with indomitable perfection, some of the equally styled-and-lacquered dialogue, but there is a throbbing sincerity and a dazzling artistry at work here.

Mamele

Marilyn Ferdinand @ Ferdy on Films

  • Excerpt: Mamele is a classic and important work for a number of reasons. It is the last Yiddish film shot in Poland, made just a year before the Nazis occupied Poland and began the destruction of the way of life depicted in the film. Mamele also stars “Queen of the Yiddish Musical” Molly Picon.

Up the Sandbox

Phil Hall @ Examiner.com

  • Excerpt: Review of the 1972 Barbra Streisand comedy

How Much Do You Love Me?

Roderick Heath @ Ferdy on Films

  • Excerpt: How Much Do You Love Me? is at once intensely romantic and deeply sarcastic, and Blier seems to be trying to say something about himself and his own sensibility as much as he commenting on genre conventions.

Mark of the Vampire

James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture

  • Excerpt: Cinema Fearité Presents ‘Mark Of The Vampire’ – Bela Lugosi In One Of The Original Horror Remakes
