HANG ON TO YOURSELF



NEW IN THEATRES...

* Never Let Me Go, an undercooked contender. I was really underwhelmed by this. Needed more of the story explained and more character material.

UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...

* The Darjeeling Limited, a pretty lengthy look at Wes Anderson's most mature movie.

* Seven Samurai, Akira Kurosawa's most famous film comes to Blu-Ray. (Also at DVD Talk).

THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...

* The Grapes of Wrath, John Ford's astonishing adaptation of John Steinbeck, with Henry Fonda in the lead. Repackaged, not reissued.

* Samurai Vendetta, a tepid swordplay story that is strangely light on the revenge. How unfortunate this was in the pool the same week as the Kurosawa.



Current Soundtrack: David Bowie, Station to Station reissue (live concert)
