NEW IN THEATRES...
Portland is lucky enough to have Cinema 21 showing the original 3D version of Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder this week. To go along with it, the Portland Mercury asked me to pick some other Hitch films for home viewing, and I did so by taking a tour of his trailers. Read the column online here.
* Drive, the best movie Paul Schrader never made. Ryan Gosling stars, all Alain Delon-like, in this violent tour-de-force by Nicolas Winding Refn.
* The Lion King 3D, an old favorite shown in a bad new light.
* Straw Dogs, a competent but pointless remake. Rod Lurie is no Sam Peckinpah. (Hey, I reviewed the original once, too.)
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Orpheus, Jean Cocteau's arthouse poem, still rock 'n' roll after more than 50 years. (Also at DVD Talk.)
* Resurrected capsule reviews of Young Mr. Lincoln and La bete humaine.
* If... updated for Blu-Ray.
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* Breakfast at Tiffany's, the quintessential Audrey Hepburn film is now on Blu-Ray.
* Road to Nowhere, Monte Hellman returns to the director's chair for a disjointed potboiler.
Current Soundtrack: James, Millionaires; Das Racist, Relax
