Seinfeld - The Complete Fourth Season - movie DVD cover picture
one of the few redeeming things on TV...


...other than PBS, news and weather, the only time I ever touch my TV is to watch Netflix DVDs. "Seinfeld," along with "Cheers" is one of the few gems worth watching: full of original and hilarious characters, smart yet snappy dialogue and imaginative new situations. It ranks up there with "All In The Family" as one of the best sitcoms of all time.

Haxan (Witchcraft Through the Ages) - Criterion Collection - movie DVD cover picture
More "bewitching" than ever!


One of the most famous cult/horror films from the silent era, Benjamin Christensen's "H?xan" is at its devilish best on this EXCELLENT DVD release by the great folks at the Criterion Collection. Say good-bye to those murky, washed out video prints we've all had to put up with, and say hello to a nearly flawless print of the film wonderfully transfered to the disc. The images are so crisp and clear, many of the scenes look as if they could have been filmed yesterday. The clarity also allows for you to see much more of the detail in each frame. Also lending to the beautiful images is accurate tinting and correct "projection" speed. Also included is a terrific musical score which has been reconstructed from the actual music that accompanied the original 1922 release in Denmark.
Extras include movie outtakes, production stills, audio commentary, and the 1960's version of the film with William S. Burroughs narrating.
The bottom line: this is far and away the best version of "H?xan" you will find anywhere, and belongs in the collection of any silent film buff.

Khachaturian - Spartacus / Vasiliev, Bessmertnova, Bolshoi Ballet - movie DVD cover picture
supreme example of male dancing


Before i watched this movie,i thought that ballet men were essentially effeminate,weak and basically `forklifts` for the women.the athletecism of the dancing,combined with the artistry and musicality was stupendous,and changed my mind completely about ballet.i have watched many ballets since then,but none have captured the vigour,vitality and beauty of male dancing to the same degree.Vasiliev was truly the best dancer ever ,and it is a pity that so little is avaiable to view of his work. notwithstanding,the women also put up a tremendous performance

A Streetcar Named Desire (Original Director's Version) - movie DVD cover picture
One of America's Great Films!


All the critics agree about one thing: there had never been a performance before in American movies like Marlon Brando gave in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. I have seen this movie many times and never tire of it. Although Brando would make other fine movies, he would never make one better. Vivien Leigh is also amazing as the fragile Blanche who is sinking into madness. Even with the stagey set, which looks like a set, the characters explode on the screen.

It seems to me that you do not compare Brando's performance and this movie to other films but rather to other great American artistic works: Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue", Toni Morrison's BELOVED, ANGELS IN AMERICA, for example. A truly great movie.

What a sweet, funny, charming movie!


Girl from Rio is such a sweet, funny, charming movie! Hugh Laurie plays a bank under-manager named Raymond Wood who leads a boring life except for his passion for samba dancing. While Raymond is teaching dancing at night, his wife is having an affair with his hateful boss. When Raymond discovers this, he decides to pursue his dream of meeting and dancing with the beautiful Brazilian samba dancer Orlinda, and the rest is pure fun.

Laurie is just wonderful in this as an upright Englishman whose life changes for the best on what he thinks is the worst day of his life. In addition to the dancing, he does some marvelous physical comedy.

If you like sweet romantic comedies, you will really like this movie.

Donnie Darko - movie DVD cover picture
One of 2001's BEST FILMS!


Let me start by saying that I've been aching to see this brilliant film since last fall, but instead had to wait till video. And boy, oh boy, was it worth the wait! Richard Kelly presents something stunning here. At times mordantly funny, shrewdly satiric, eerie, tragic, but always fascinating, "Donnie Darko" is an inspiration for people like me looking for something that will come as a revelation. Jake Gyllenhaal does tricky, effective work here, and carries the film strongly. Mary McDonnell is first-rate, and the rest of the supporting cast know exactly what Kelly wants from them. Touching, funny, surprising and entertaining, "Donnie Darko" will remain one of my favorite films of all time. The only negative to come of my love for this film is that too many people I know who don't have the appreciation for this work of art have seen it and are singing its praises. I wish I hadn't shown them so I could keep "Donnie Darko" and its beauty all to myself and those I think will appreciate it like me. Thanks to the luminous Drew Barrymore for getting this film and filmmaker where they belong.

A.I. Artificial Intelligence (Widescreen Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
A.I.


Essentially, A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLEGENCE is a short film stretched out into a feature. The first segment which introduces the artificially created boy would have made an excellent episode for the "Twilight Zone" or "The Outer Limits." Unfortunately, the filmmakers do not leave well enough alone. Instead, they drag the film out into a series of seemingly endless subplots and twists.
In the last reel or so, the film rolls off a series of endings which mostly fail to generate the emotional impact that is Spielberg's trademark. Some semblance of a theme survives, but its impact is weakened by the film's lack of urgency. The theme is also not brought out in the most compelling way. If you have any interest in seeing this film, watch only the first thirty or forty minutes. It goes steadily downhill from that point on. A major disappointment.
