Pickpocket This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Pickpocket - Robert Bresson's hypnotic ode to spiritual transcendence is a fascinating film, especially after one reads about the director's approach to filmmaking -- no professional actors, no 'performing' or emotions allowed; Call Her Savage - A notorious pre-Code pot-boiler resurfaces to show us a great silent actress struggling to survive in the talkies; and Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! - Pedro Almodóvar's film is a racy anti-PC comedy- asylum graduate Antonio Banderas stalks and imprisons ex- porn star and junkie Victoria Abril in an apartment, to wait until she falls in love with him. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 This week several great movies are coming out, including a few that shouldn't be missed: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 [review] - this second film from director Marc Webb is a more confident outing, and Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy steal the show; Y tu mama tambien [review] - It's been thirteen years since its release, but this film doesn't feel dated at all, and the good people at Criterion top themselves with this excellent dual-format presentation; and Toy Story of Terror [review] - the movie is a lot of fun and Disney has added plenty of solid supplementals for Pixar geeks to enjoy. Other reviews of note include Leviathan [review], Sorceress [review], and Varsity Blood [review]. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Woodstock, 3 Days of Peace & Music Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries.

Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fourth Season More TV shows have made their way on to DVD and Blu-ray, and DVD Talk has got them covered. Check out our reviews of the newest TV releases including: Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fourth Season - If you like gangsters, the roaring '20s, and the moral relativism that comes with both, this show should be on your radar; The Birthday Boys: Season One - this sketch comedy show, shepherded by Mr. Show star Bob Odenkirk, is funny as well as being remarkably polished; and The New Normal: The Complete Series - yet another show that has been cancelled before it truly had a chance... it pushed the boundaries of typical sitcom, but also hooked viewers with the charming characters and the well told stories. Other shows recently reviewed include:  A Conversation with Walter & Gracie Lantz, Community: Season 5, and Adventure Time: Princess Day .  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Out of the Past This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Out of the Past - Not since original 35mm prints were screened has Jacques Tourneur's romantic noir masterpiece looked this good. Robert Mitchum reached stardom playing a detective too tough to be taken in by anything... except the alluring, devious fugitive Jane Greer, a genuine drop-dead beauty of the 1940s; The Unforgiven - John Huston gets remarkable performances from a top cast in this excellent frontier drama... when rancher Burt Lancaster's adopted sister Audrey Hepburn is accused of being an Indian, it looses a storm of racial hatred and violence; and Wildcat Bus - A deadbeat playboy and his chauffeur help Fay Wray's bus line get the goods on crooks that are sabotaging their buses and faking accidents, all to put them out of business. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

The Railway Man There are some new titles coming out that might make it worth a trip to the video store this week. Check out these recent releases: The Railway Man [review] - fine performances and quality script help to make this a triumphant and remarkable motion picture; Motel Hell [review] - With its cacklingly dark sense of humor and some unforgettably twisted visuals, this film still feels fresh and wildly unique even all these decades later; and Filth [review] - Jon Baird's adaptation of author Irvine Welsh's 1998 novel is both brilliant and brilliantly entertaining. Other reviews of note include We Won't Grow Old Together [review], Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [review], and OMG Volume 2: The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History [review]. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.
