DVD RELEASES 2009/7/14

This is one of those weeks where I feel like I must not be doing my job very well, as the most relevant releases have gone unseen by my eyes. But we plan to keep this a recurring event at HTN, so this time around, you’ll have to settle for a more stripped down, alphabetized list. Short and sweet, which leaves more time for watching-watching-watching (click on the links below to purchase the titles at Amazon):

12 (Sony Pictures Classics) [DVD]

Eldorado (Film Movement) [DVD]

Explicit Ills (Peace Arch) [DVD and Blu-ray]

FLicKeR (Alive Mind) [DVD]

Michael Tully is an award-winning writer/director whose films have garnered widespread critical acclaim, his projects having premiered at some of the most renowned film festivals across the globe. He is also the former (and founding) editor of this site. In 2006, Michael's first feature, COCAINE ANGEL, chronicling a tragic week in the life of a young drug addict, world premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam. The film immediately solidified the director as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s "25 New Faces of Independent Film,” a reputation that was reinforced a year later when his follow-up feature, SILVER JEW, a documentary capturing the late David Berman's rare musical performances in Tel Aviv, world-premiered at SXSW and landed distribution with cult indie-music label Drag City. In 2011, Michael wrote, directed, and starred in his third feature, SEPTIEN, which debuted at the 27th annual Sundance Film Festival before being acquired by IFC Films' Sundance Selects banner. A few years later, in 2014, Michael returned to Sundance with the world premiere of his fourth feature, PING PONG SUMMER, an ‘80s set coming-of-age tale that was quickly picked up for theatrical distribution by Gravitas Ventures. In 2018, Michael wrote and directed the dread-inducing genre film DON'T LEAVE HOME, which has been described as "Get Out with Catholic guilt in the Irish countryside" (IndieWire). The film premiered at SXSW and was subsequently acquired by Cranked Up Films and Shudder.
