Notable New Releases

A Serious Man
Why the Coen Brothers' latest film slipped under the radar is beyond me. It's a really smart, darkly comedic fable in the vein of Barton Fink. If you like early Woody Allen you will also enjoy all the Jewish humor they use.

Extras include:

  • Becoming Serious
  • Creating 1967
  • Hebrew and Yiddish for Goys

The Time Traveler's Wife
I'm a sucker for stories with time travel, so I'm looking forward to checking it out.

Extras include:

  • 'An Unconventional Love Story' Featurette
  • 'Love Beyond Words' Featurette

One of my favorite surprises. Director Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher trilogy) has crafted a very unconventional prison film and Tom Hardy's amazing lead performance make this a must see.

Extras include:

  • Charles Bronson Monologues
  • Making of Bronson
  • Interviews with Writer/Director Nicolas Winding Refn, Actors Tom Hardy, Matt King, and Paul Daniels
  • Behind-the-Scenes Footage
  • Training Tom Hardy
