It's been a little slow around here in terms of theatrical releases, but I've been keeping up with my home viewing. Here is what I've covered in the last two weeks:
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* The Forgiveness of Blood, this Albania-set drama is the second feature from the director of Maria Full of Grace. (Also at DVD Talk.)
* Rosemary's Baby, Roman Polasnki's spooky nightmare about a child from hell.
THIS WEEK IN BD/DVD REVIEWS...
* Chained, Jennifer Lynch's psychological horror movie doesn't quite link up.
* Mad Men: Season Five, the best show on television keeps getting better.
* The Penalty, a potent silent film starring Lon Chaney as a double-amputee bent on revenge.
* Shut Up and Play the Hits, the documentary about LCD Soundsystem's last gig; features the full three-hour concert.
* Three Secrets, Robert Wise's 1950 melodrama about a trio of women who may or may not be the mother of a young boy stranded on a mountain.
* The Woodmans, a moving documentary about late photographer Francesca Woodman and the effect her suicide has had on her family.
