When I saw this great movie recently on the Criterion Collection two-disc DVD set, I was amazed at the high quality of the picture, and the sound quality is reasonably good as well.

Close-Up is a semi-documentary movie that tells the curious tale of an unemployed man who poses as a filmmaker he admires.

11/27/01 - Pick of the Week: The 39 Steps DVD
Alfred Hitchcock directed many memorable movies over his long career, but one of his most charming remains his 1935 film The 39 Steps, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the restored version of this great movie on the Criterion Collection DVD.

The Mummy Returns is an action-packed kids' movie with lots of computer-generated special effects. Many adults seem to like the film, but I thought it was boring when I watched it recently on DVD.
