DVD RELEASES – 2010/3/16

It’s not just that I’m too busy basking in the glory that is the 2010 SXSW Film Festival to present a more robust post. It appears that this is just one of those unfortunately thin weeks when it comes to new home video releases. While I haven’t actually seen any of the following films, I didn’t want to leave you guys empty-handed in case you were desperate to spend some money. To my eyes, these are the most potentially interesting new titles for the taking, though word on some of the films themselves is quite varied:

Dillinger is Dead (Criterion) — Buy it on DVD.

Gogol Bordello Non-Stop (Knitting Factory) — Buy it on DVD.

Brief Interviews With Hideous Men (MPI Home Video) — Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights (Warner Home Video) — Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

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.
