City Slickers (1991)

"A different way of tackling the sons-and-fathers story, but right up there with the best of them--and a tremendous western comedy as well." ‐ Slant Magazine

The Ice Storm (1997)

"Change, or the struggle to make change fit into the established system, is Lee's most familiar chord. He struck it loudest in The Ice Storm." ‐ Slant Magazine

The Last Emperor (1987)

"One of cinema's greatest cinematographic performances combines with a director's epic vision and superb craftsmanship to create a visual masterpiece. Restored by Criterion, this set is well worth remembering." ‐ Slant Magazine

Indie Sex: Censored (2007)

"A fascinating subject that deserves all the intelligent attention it gets. Just, with The Celluloid Closet or Pornography: A History of Civilization, there have been better efforts." ‐ Slant Magazine

This Sporting Life (1963)

""You'll be what you are, self-reliant." A ringing quote that defines a film, a movement, a director, and a tremendous DVD set." ‐ Slant Magazine

The Lady Vanishes (1938)

"Hitchcock and film lovers alike should not pass up this worthy copy of one of the director's British-made masterworks." ‐ Slant Magazine

Full Metal Jacket (1987)

"A hyper-violent, foul-mouthed war movie that outpaces Apocalypse Now, Platoon, and a dozen others for sheer motive force. This disc, packaged with so many other Kubrick classics, only makes it better." ‐ Slant Magazine

The Princess Bride (1987)

"Lacking the commentaries and home video footage that graced previous The Princess Bride DVD releases, and short any comment from Reiner or Goldman, this pedestrian set hardly excites." ‐ Slant Magazine

As You Like It (2006)

"Branagh's film suffers when that boldness does not go far enough, creating an adaptation that trades depth and cultural exploration for a few quick fireworks; it is not so much Kurosawa's Macbeth as Memoirs of a Geisha." ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 25, 2007

The Hustler (1961)

"The Hustler reaffirms your faith in the movies." ‐ Slant Magazine

Glastonbury (2007)

"Sure, the film is about change, but did new culture come from Glastonbury, or did Glastonbury adapt to the culture? Without an answer to this or many similar questions, Glastonbury is a pretty spectacle with no documentary weight." ‐ Slant Magazine

Big (1988)

"Marshall's film is gold." ‐ Slant Magazine

That Thing You Do! (1996)

"Get this edition if you like the movie, but stick to the theatrical release available as a feature on the first disc." ‐ Slant Magazine

The Guns of Navarone (1961)

"A cold, hard caper." ‐ Slant Magazine

"Cagney's well worth remembering, and this set is a good start to a specific corner of his career." ‐ Slant Magazine

Major League (1989)

"With baseball season underway, it's perfect timing to bring back this quotable classic. Remember The Ueck: "Just a bit outside!"" ‐ Slant Magazine

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

"Thirty-one years, plus well over a decade since I was abruptly introduced to the film. It is, as it was then, extraordinary." ‐ Slant Magazine

Point Break (1991)

"Surfing. Bank robbery. Skydiving. Johnny Utah. If you can stomach the contents, Point Break is a dumbly entertaining treat." ‐ Slant Magazine
