Slant Magazine

Eastwood's latest underappreciated masterpiece makes a stunning debut on Blu-ray with a lack of extras that arguably purposefully bucks any sense of context.

An out-of-the-closet biopic knocking another controversial icon off his pedestal.

Movie Metropolis

The movie bears all the earmarks of a great film without ever rising to the occasion of greatness; instead, it is almost forgettable an hour after seeing it. (Blu-ray edition)
