DVD Pick: "East of Eden"
East of Eden stars James Dean in his first major movie role, and I personally think it is the best film he ever appeared in. Now at last it has become available on DVD. Dean is probably most famous for his performances in Rebel Without a Cause and Giant, but those movies seem to me dated. In contrast, East of Eden still feels fresh to me, and I attribute that primarily to the fact that it was directed by Elia Kazan. Read a DVD review of East of Eden. Page 2.

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.

I laughed a lot while watching Chicago, and it contains about 15 song-and-dance numbers.
