Electricity & Lust

DVDs This Week 28 April

Posted in DVDs by Sam Unsted on April 28, 2008

Pick of the Week: Paranoid Park – Gus Van Sant’s dreamy existentialist piece concerning a skater and an accidental death. It’s slow, considered and utterly beguiling.

Also Out:
The Golden Compass – A shocking disappointment from promising source material.
Lust, Caution – Ang Lee’s exploration of sex and hate which I am yet to see.
We Own The Night – Another only-okay gangster-ish movie from James Gray which, again, stars Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix.
Waitress – Terrific final film from the late Adrienne Shelly featuring charming performances from Keri Russell and Nathan Fillion.
Sleuth – Jude Law… I hate him. You may love him. Go from there.
Out of the Blue – Yet to see this but apparently a thoughtful reflection on a tragic incident in New Zealand history. Will be checking it out.

Region 1:
27 Dresses – It doesn’t look like much but with James Marsden on board, I could rent it.
