On DVD and HBO: Taking Chance


The latest great film to come from HBO Films is now on DVD...and you can probably still find it on cable, too. Check out my review at filmcritic.com.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll locate it on Netflix.

I have finally reserved, "Sexy Beast" which my son has been after me for years to see. Why me? has been my response. Why should I spend 90 minutes on sexual bestiality?

Any advice?

I recorded this movie on my DVR and saved it. As one who has lost a son I could relate. I wept, and wept and wept.

Oh yeah, this one really surprised me. Much less manipulative than a lot of other similar-themed films, which for me is such a welcome change of pace. Very introspective, very muted, but perfectly emotional at almost every turn. Very sophisticated, very interesting. Such a surprise.
