[NOTE: Unfortunately, SXSW got in the way last week so we’re going to combine new releases from March 15th and 22nd in this post to deliver a double-whammy of information!]

Recommended

The Windmill Movie (Zeitgeist Films) — Read my HTN conversation with director Alexander Olch, then buy it on DVD.

New/Old To Blu-ray Pick(s) Of The Week(s)

No One Knows About Persian Cats (MPI Home Video) — Buy it on DVD.

Wild Card(s) of The Week(s)

How Do You Know (Columbia Pictures) — One of these years, I will return to get my doctorate in film studies, and my thesis will concentrate on this James L. Brooks messterpiece, which must be seen to be fully disbelieved and incomprehended. Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

The Absent (Passion River Films) — If you’re a fan of Chris Sivertson’s I Know Who Killed Me as much as I am, then you should definitely take Sage Bannick’s similarly toned thriller for a spin (whaddya know, it was produced by Mr. Sivertson himself). Buy it on DVD.

    According to Amazon, the only short film extras are: “Two previously unreleased Richard Rogers shorts: Elephants: Fragments of an Argument and 226-1690 (aka The Answering Machine Movie).”

    QUARRY is one of the best short films I’ve ever seen, man.
