Bob Cashill @ Popdose.com

  • Excerpt: Capsule reviews of new and vintage releases on home video.

Curious George Swings into Spring

James Plath @ Family Home Theater

Joshua Brunsting @ The CriterionCast

The Great Magician

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: The best trick in The Great Magician is convincing the viewer that all things are possible.

Hemel

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: For myself, the best parts of Hemel did nothing to propel the narrative, where director Sacha Polak simply let the camera meditate on the face of Hannah Hoekstra.

Turning

Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

  • Excerpt: A collaboration between filmmaker Charles Atlas and singer Antony Hegarty, “Turning” captures musical selections from a special European tour Hegarty undertook with his band the Johnsons in 2006. As much a performance piece as it was a concert, Hegarty handpicked individual women, including some who are transsexual, to appear on stage as models during the songs.

Precious Life

Jonathan Richards @ www.jonrichardsplace.com

  • Excerpt: What Eldar wants us to see is that when you remove the “us against them” mass identities that divide us and put people together on a human basis, their humanity trumps their ideology.
