New on DVD and Blu-ray – April 17, 2012


Shame - DVD and Blu-ray (2011) – Grade A+

Shame

Here it is: Shame is the best film of 2011. It’s one of the toughest films that I’ve ever watched due to its content and presentation of it; Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan should have been nominated for Oscars for their performances; director and co-writer Steve McQueen should also have been nominated for an Oscar; and any adult that can stomach a no-holds barred approach to the topic of sex addiction should see this film.

And that’s all there is to say about that.



Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol - DVD and Blu-ray (2011) – Grade A

Late Spring - Criterion Collection Blu-ray (1949) - Grade A+

Late Spring

Yasujiro Ozu is, undisputedly one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and arguably the greatest Japanese filmmaker of all time. Late Spring is a great example of the previous statement. It’s also my favourite Ozu film. It’s melancholic, gorgeously and masterfully shot, edited, and acted, and remains a great testament to the cinema of the Japanese post-war era.
