DVD RELEASES 2010/8/24

Pick of the Week

Machine Gun McCain (Blue Underground) — Overdubbing aside, this is one very tough little crime movie (think Ocean’s Eleven meets Husbands). Recently released prisoner John Cassavetes—he being Mr. McCain, if you couldn’t figure that out—tries to pull off a big score on the casino that crime boss Peter Falk is now controlling. Though Cassavetes finds a partner-in-crime in the beautiful Britt Ekland (the scene in which he woos her is hilariously machismo), he also reunites with real-life partner Gena Rowlands in the third act to make things more Cassavetesian than they already were. Buy it on DVD and Blu-ray.
