"THX 1138" DVD
Before George Lucas became famous, he co-wrote and directed an excellent movie titled THX 1138starring Robert Duvall. Now a restored director’s cut of that film is being released as a superb two-disc DVD set loaded with worthwhile bonus materials. A single-disc version is also available, but missing most of the extras. With either DVD version you'll get a first-rate movie and an excellent commentary track, but I recommend the two-disc version because of its terrific bonus materials.

Crash DVD
Crash won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and I recommend it because it intelligently takes on the all-important topic of racial prejudice in America. Also, I found the acting exceptionally good, and I admired director Paul Haggis's skillful handling of the large cast. However, it seems to me the film emphasizes theme at the expense of character development and plot plausibility. The result is a bit too preachy and contrived for my taste.

I only knew a little about Los Angeles poet and novelist Charles Bukowski (1920-1994) before seeing the fascinating film Bukowski: Born Into This (2003) on DVD. Having heard so much about his drinking and fighting, I was surprised that in the documentary he comes off as likable. About 45 books of Bukowski's writings were published in his lifetime. He wrote six novels, two of the best-known being Post Office (1971) and Ham on Rye (1982). He also authored many poems and short stories.

Ushpizin (2004) is a pleasant little film that takes place in an ultra-Orthodox community in modern-day Jerusalem, but its message is universal. The dialogue is in Hebrew, and the DVD provides English and Spanish subtitles.

Top Action Movies
Movies can show fierce battles, high-speed chases, and horrific explosions that most of us will never experience in real life, and I think such sequences properly used make films far more emotionally engaging. Here I've selected movies containing action that is well-integrated into the story. This is my personal, idiosyncratic list of favorites, and it doesn't necessarily reflect the popular wisdom on action movies. For the sake of focus, I've limited my choices to English-language talkies.
Top Romantic Movies
There's no guarantee of finding romance in real life, but if you know where to look, you can usually find romantic movies at least, and I've listed below some of my favorites that are available on video and DVD.
DVD Pick: “In America”
“In America” (2002) is an English-language drama that received three Academy Award nominations: Best Actress (Samantha Morton), Best Supporting Actor (Djimon Hounsou), and Best Original Screenplay. The film was on scores of 2003 Top Ten lists, and after I watched it on DVD recently, I could certainly see why. I found In America to be one of the most emotionally engaging movies I have ever seen. Read a full-length review the movie of In America on DVD.

Pearl Harbor DVD Review

DVD Pick: "The Notebook"
I would describe the movie The Notebook as an unabashedly romantic tale about love, memories, and death. It's a weepy, but I believe it's one that men can connect with. It's based on a novel by a man, the screenplay was written by a man, and the director is a man. The story chronicles one otherwise-quite-ordinary man's uncompromising love.

Apocalypse Now is one of the great movies of all time. Beginning with winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes, Francis Ford Coppola stunned the film world in 1979 with his brilliant Apocalypse Now.

Top Classic Film-Noir Movies
I've seen a lot of classic film-noir movies over the years, and since so many are available on DVD these days, I’m enjoying them more often. My choice of films doesn't necessarily reflect the popular wisdom on film-noir classics; instead, this is my personal, idiosyncratic list of favorites from the 1940s and 1950s.
Pick of the Week: The David Lean Collection
I can't think of another DVD box set that provides so much entertainment that will be enjoyed by almost anyone. Two of the films -- Lawrence of Arabia and The Bridge on the River Kwai -- are great, and the third -- A Passage to India -- is very good indeed.
Pick of the Week: “Chicago” DVD
I laughed a lot while watching Chicago, and it contains about 15 song-and-dance numbers. However, the filmmakers didn’t want the story to stop while the musical numbers are performed, and lovers of traditional musicals might be disappointed. I see the movie as more of a comedy with musical numbers than as a musical. Read a full-length review of Chicago on DVD.
DVD Pick: M*A*S*H
Robert Altman's landmark film MASH chronicles the zany antics of American medical personnel who treat the wounded during a war in Asia, but the movie is darker and edgier than the TV series. Find out more about the movie and the DVD in this DVD review.

DVD Pick: "The Blues Brothers" 25th Anniversary...
The Blues Brothers is a 1980 comedy starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd that has become part of American pop culture consciousness. For me, it's the music that gives the movie its exuberance. The Blues Brothers Band plays numbers that are enjoyable enough, but the best are performed by guest artists Cab Calloway, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker. Read a review of this movie on DVD.
DVD Pick: Sicko
Sicko DVD review that explores both the movie and the DVD extras. In Sicko, Michael Moore has created a film on the subject that is witty and thought-provoking. The movie is flat-out agitprop, but it isn't boring. Find out more about the movie in this review of Sicko on DVD.
DVD Pick: "Million Dollar Baby"
Million Dollar Baby won four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director (Clint Eastwood), Best Actress (Hilary Swank), and Best Supporting Actor (Morgan Freeman). It was nominated for three additional Oscars: Best Actor (Eastwood again), Best Editing, and Best Adapted Screenplay. As far as I am concerned, it is one of 2004's top three movies, the other two being The Aviator and Sideways. But I would say that Million Dollar Baby has far and away the strongest emotional impact of the three.
Monster's Ball Movie DVD Review
Monster's Ball takes on some big themes, too, including American race relations and capital punishment, but young director Marc Forster, who was raised in Switzerland, managed to avoid the clichés that plague most films addressing these issues. I watched this movie recently on DVD and found it to be absolutely riveting from beginning to end. Read my review of Monster's Ball on DVD.
DVD Pick: The New World
The New World gets underway in 1607 in what later became known as Virginia, and the first character we see is Pocahontas, a member of an Algonquian-speaking tribe. She appears to be a playful adolescent, but her life changes drastically after the arrival of British men who set about building Jamestown, which will become the first permanent English settlement in America.

Keira Knightley shines in the role of Elizabeth Bennet in this generally faithful adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel.

The film concentrates on the second daughter, Elizabeth, particularly her relationships with suitors. It is with some difficulty that she finally comes to terms with her feelings about one suitor, Mr. Darcy (Matthew Macfayden).

Ushpizin DVD
This humorous little film takes place in the Hasidic community of modern-day Jerusalem. The main characters are Moshe and Malli, a married couple. They are so poor they can't afford to build a sukkah, the temporary shelter their religion requires them to move into during the festival of Sukkot. But their immediate problems seem solved when both a sukkah and some money unexpectedly come their way.
DVD Pick: The Threepenny Opera (Criterion...
Die Dreigroschenoper was a big hit on the Berlin stage, and in 1930 a movie company began the process of adapting it for the screen. The film director was G.W. Pabst, whose movies were among the most artistically successful during the 1920s. Pabst's films are marked by social and political concerns, which made him a good fit for the Brecht-Weill material and helped him to add the proper visual dimension. The movie version of Die Dreigroschenoper, which was released in 1931, is a masterpiece.
