Highlander 1 & 2 - movie DVD cover picture
Quality's not that bad


Check your wires to make sure your player is hooked up right. Widescreen Review gave the 10th Anniversary Edition a 4.5 for picture, and a 4.5 for sound. They are pretty darn fussy, and don't pull any punches.

Serial Experiments Lain


The series only gets better as it goes along, and "Deus" is no exception. Be forewarned, though, when saying that "Lain" gets better, that also means it gets weirder.
I recommend watching each volume twice. Usually I figure things out after the second viewing.

Good Charlotte - The Video Collection - movie DVD cover picture
really interesting


When I this dvd in the store, i started screaming because I love all of the videos, but they're never on MTV or TRL. Watching i on an 18-inch computer screen really sucks, but it's the best i could do. If you love the GC videos, i highly reccomend this. It doesn't have "Hold On", which is one of my personal faves, but it's awesome. GO BUY THIS...YOU WON"T BE SORRY!!!

Vanishing Point - movie DVD cover picture
A 70's Drive In Cult Classic


Fast action, terrific photography, great period atmosphere, colorful characters and a first-rate rock soundtrack add up to a true drive-in classic that retains its "cult classic" reputation even after more than 30 years.
This DVD includes BOTH the 97-minute U.S. print typically seen on cable and video AND the 105-minute U.K. version which includes a couple of flashbacks featuring Charlotte Rampling that for some reason were completely excised for U.S. release. The excised scenes add just a tad more insight into Kowalski's character; while not essential to the whole plot (such as it is), these scenes ARE interesting and definitely will be appreciated by hardcore fans of the film. Kudos to 20th Century Fox for making available both versions. Being a real fan of the era that this movie was shot in, it's a kick to hear director Richard C. Sarafian's commentary track. Highly recommended!

Huey Long - movie DVD cover picture
An excellent documentary on one man's complex legacy


One really is left wondering "what might have been" after watching this splendid documentary of one of the most compelling figures in 20th century US politics. I have my doubts that Huey Long could have wrestled the 1936 presidential nomination away from FDR (a far more adroit politician who knew as well as anyone how to marginalize his foes), but what would have the 1940 elections brought? Huey Long might never have had the national following to get the nomination, but he would have been a force to be reckoned with within the Democratic party.

How he reached this level of power is fascinating. Relatively unschooled but with political instincts second to none in Louisiana, Long could have written the book on the consolidation of power. The Long Machine is not unique --- there have been other statewide machines such as the Cameron Machine in Pennsylvania, for example --- but the swiftness with which Long's organization rose to power is unparalleled. Even more amazing was the fact that he had sizeable opposition within Louisiana who knew exactly what he was trying to do, and yet Long was still able to outmaneuver his foes!

Clearly it is pretty easy to paint Long as an utterly corrupt dictator, and not a few of the talking heads in this documentary do exactly that. I could have done without Arthur Schlesinger Jr. (evidently taking time off from being the official Camelot court historian and Kennedy apologist) self-righteously pronouncing judgement on Huey Long, even though Long deserved it --- but that is neither here nor there. The fact that Long was a thoroughly unsavory autocrat does not explain the popular appeal he had which lasts to this very day. Burns, to his eternal credit, devotes a not inconsequential amount film to interviews with ordinary people who recall all the wonderful things Huey Long did for the have-nots in the state. Look into their eyes --- you can see genuine affection for the man, decades after his death.

All of this leaves the viewer with no easy answers, which is fine with me. History is rarely a black-and-white proposition, and we should not pretend that it is so. Did the good deeds of the man excuse his corruption and hunger for power? What is the benefit of democracy if the have-nots always lose and suffer? Some countries have had the chance to choose tyranny because it least it meant that every citizen would have his or her basic needs met, and to them it was worth sacrificing civil liberties. It hasn't happened often in the US, but it did happen once upon a time in Louisiana. Ken Burns does a splendid job of telling the story.
