PICK OF THE WEEK

Solaris (Criterion) — Hopefully Mike Nordine will be writing a full review of this exciting new Criterion release in the future, but suffice to say: if you love movies, this is a must-have. Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

Recommended

In the City of Sylvia (Cinema Guild) — To be totally honest, this film didn’t connect with me the way it did so many other male film writers, but those who like it love it and I’m going to trust their judgment and recommend it here. If you like slow-burn foreign films and can relate to being a shy, awkward dude who has spent one’s entire life pining after pretty girls from afar (to the point of near stalking), then take this baby for a spin! Buy it on DVD.

New/Old to Blu-ray

The Great Dictator (Criterion) — Charlie Chaplin takes on the evil dictator whose softest of crimes was to jack his infamous moustache style. Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

Have Not Seen But Really/Kinda/Sorta/Maybe Wanna

Public Speaking (HBO Home Video) — Buy it on DVD.

A Small Act (Docurama) — Buy it on DVD.

The Unloved (Oscilloscope) — Samantha Morton’s directorial debut! Buy it on DVD.

Night After Night (Pathfinder Home Entertainment) — An early work from Catherine Breillat (1979). If you’re a fan of Breillat, you know what you’re getting into. Buy it on DVD.
