Pick of the Week

In Another Country (Lorber Films) — Full disclosure: I have only seen the first 23 minutes of Hong Sang-soo’s movie, because the screener I was watching kept funking up at that point. But based on that first act alone, I feel no shame in making this the Pick of The Week. More importantly, I can’t wait to get my hands on an unscratched copy that will play all the way through! Available on DVD.


Hyde Park on Hudson (Universal) — In his “My Year In Film: A Memoir of Sorts” over at Filmmaker Magazine, HTN contributor Brandon Harris wrote this (slightly edited here!): Roger Michell’s vastly underrated Hyde Park on Hudson, which I discovered on a wintery night in an Opera House along a narrow canal in northeastern Poland just after Thanksgiving, got me thinking about the ways that sex has little to do with public performance, or at least should. Available on DVD, Blu-ray, and at Amazon Instant.
