I was also lucky enough to speak briefly with Mr. Craven about his new movie.
In new DVDs, I checked out the long awaited DVD debut of Eric Rohmer's masterpiece Autumn Tale, which is a Region 2, PAL import copy of only middling quality. It'll do for now. I also checked out a new homemade short film called Broken that some action fans might want to look into. John Ford's Drums Along the Mohawk finally hits DVD, but where is his great Fort Apache? New Yorker released a pair of superb Mohsen Makhmalbaf films from Iran: A Moment of Innocence and The Silence, appropriate since they opened in U.S. theaters as a double-bill in 2000. Remington Steele: Season One is a cheesy preview of Pierce Brosnan's James Bond charm, Sin City skimps on the extras, and The Truman Show: Special Edition is as good as I remember it being when I reviewed it in 1998.
Until next week...
