Pet Shop Boys: Somewhere [DVD]

The real story with Pet Shop Boys and with Somewhere is the music, and on that point the show is flawless.


Jerry Lee Lewis: I Am What I Am [DVD]

24: Season 3

When playing Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland observes, 'Everything that's happening at any given moment is more important than anything else in the world.'


In Living Color: Season 2

Appearing during the Reagan revolution's pronounced backlash against the homeless/poor/people of color, Homey offered a counter-narrative.


The Terminal (2004)

The saga of Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks) is an apt reflection of what might be termed a global fear.


Smooth Talk (1985)

As he inhabits a movie based on a Joyce Carol Oates short story, Arnold is all kinds of metaphor.


Infernal Affairs (2002)

Infernal Affairs is endlessly stylish.


Horns and Halos (2002)

The real thrill of Horns and Halos is watching an upstart DIY publisher make a noticeable dent by championing what everyone else might see as a lost cause.

Snoop Dogg: Bigg Snoop Dogg’s Puff Puff Pass Tour [DVD]

The filmmakers start to draw out a larger message: The Drug War was a second American Civil War, led by a racist Southern family named Bush, to re-imprison blacks and other minorities.


Emerson, Lake & Palmer: Live at Montreux 1997 [DVD]

Zhou Yu’s Train (Zhou Yu de huo che) (2002)

Structured as a tale that is in the process of being told, Zhou Yu's Train cuts back and forth in time and across locations.


The Three Faces of Eve (1957)

As Eve, a young woman whose life unravels following her diagnosis with multiple personality disorder, Joanne Woodward is spectacular.


Ragtime (1981)

Profound as Coalhouse walker's story might be, Ragtime is about far more.


Hero (2002)

Hero reimagines history in a way that underlines its tragedy.


The Clearing (2004)

The kidnapping sets in motion a thriller that doubles as a character study, delving into Wayne and Eileen's strained marriage.


The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi (2003)

'In Japan,' says Takeshi Kitano, 'cops and yakuzas are the only two occupations that deal with death or violence daily.'"

Fela Kuti: Music Is the Weapon [DVD]

M170o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Norah Jones and the Handsome Band: Live in 2004 [DVD]

The DVD serves as confirmation that, yes, Norah is Norah, and effectively drives home everything that has now become part of the 'Norah Package'. Quiet, withdrawn demeanor? Check. Slow, peaceful tunes? Check. Total control over a positively velvet voice? Check.

If Alex is the dad, Louie is the drunk uncle who visits without calling first.
