Damsels in Distress Blu-ray Review

Damsels in Distress, the long awaited Whit Stillman successor to Metropolitan and The Last Days of Disco, is an amusing take on campus life. If not at the level of inspiration of Stillman's other efforts, there is a Jane Austen-like approach to the battle of the sexes that will appeal to many viewers.

The Last Days of Disco [Criterion Collection] Blu-ray Review

The era of rotating crystal balls, all-night dancing, relentless beats, and drugs is brought back to life by Whit Stillman in The Last Days of Disco. An excellent cast with evocative videography delivers a great watch.

Metropolitan [Criterion Collection] Blu-ray Review

Whit Stillman hits a cinematic home run in his debut film, Metropolitan, a spot-on character study of privileged youth in 1980s Manhattan. Grainy film and boxy soundtrack aside, this is an insightful examination of the debutante party scene, with great performances by a cast of largely unknown actors.

Metropolitan [Criterion Collection] Blu-ray Review

Whit Stillman's 1990 peek into the lives of the young and rich socialites of New York arrives in a strong director approved Criterion Collection Blu-ray release.

A Bag of Hammers Blu-ray Review

A Bag of Hammers is an uneven indie comedy with a lot of heart that is still, in the end, an enjoyable film.

Melancholia Blu-ray Review

Lars von Trier's visually spectacular and emotionally gripping study of depression features a fantastic performance from Kirsten Dunst and a strong HD transfer on Blu-ray.

Tiny Furniture [Criterion Collection] Blu-ray Review

Lena Dunham may have an eye for the lens, but her comedy of privilege results in obnoxious, one-dimensional characters and a vapid story that becomes quickly tiring.

I Melt With You Blu-ray Review

Mark Pellington's dizzying and drugged out indie I Melt With You hits Blu-ray packed with a good bit of HD extras and a decent 1080p transfer from Magnolia.
