    DVD review: 'A Night to Remember' offers historical look at Titanic disaster
    We're about three weeks away from the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster, so it makes perfect sense that Criterion is putting out new Blu-rayand DVD releases of the 1958 “A Night to Remember,” almost simultaneously with James Cameron'...

    DVD review: 'Melancholia' is a multilayer metaphor
    This strange film from Lars von Trier (“Breaking the Waves,” “Dogville”), which topped my favorites list for 2011, is now available on Blu-ray disc and DVD. It's an impossible movie to categorize sensibly: One can call it “...

  • DVD Review: Another brilliant shade of 'Blue Velvet'

    Count me among those who consider David Lynch's “Blue Velvet” to be the greatest American film of the 1980s. (Sorry, “Raging Bull,” better luck next time.) There was a passable DVD release in 2000 and a much better “Special...

    ”Three Colors: Blue, White, Red” (Criterion Collection, Blu-ray, 3 discs, $79.95; DVD, 4 discs, $59.95) Following the international success of his extraordinary “Double Life of Veronique” (also available on Blu-ray and DVD from...

    DVD Review: 'Tucker & Dale vs. Evil'
    Released two months ago amid no flurry of any sort, “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil” is a fine example of young talent — in this case, director/co-writer Eli Craig — finding yet one more way to freshen up a seemingly exhausted genre. The...

    When Ernst Lubitsch's comedy about a Bohemian menage a trois was released in 1933, it took a lot of heat for its lack of fidelity to Noel Coward's original stage play. Screenwriter Ben Hecht boasted that he had retained only one line of dialogue from...
