Otherwise, the Anthony Hopkins vehicle The World's Fastest Indian (another failed awards contender) isn't too bad, and neither is the documentary Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt. Moving downward in quality, we have the Oscar Wilde adaptation A Good Woman and the romantic comedy Something New (whose boring titles could probably be reversed without anyone batting an eye).
In new DVDs, Universal/Focus has provided a new Repo Man DVD to make up for all the out-of-print versions (it's one of my favorite movies; I've seen it over 30 times). Otherwise, we have two music videos, Buzzcocks: Live at Shepherd's Bush Empire 2003 and God Save the Queen: A Punk Anthology, as well as Philip Kaufman's debut film Goldstein and Peter Watkins' disturbing Punishment Park. Cameron Crowe's magnificently bloated turkey Elizabethtown makes its home debut (with extended scenes, of all things). Finally, I've added notes on the new He-Man and the Masters of the Universe box set.
Have a great weekend!
