Kiki's Delivery ServiceKiki's Delivery Service (1989)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) This is more or less the perfect family film, because it doesn't contain an antagonist – and doesn't need one.
DVD $29.95 | Blu-Ray $39.95
Parade's End (TV Mini-Series)Parade's End (TV Mini-Series) (2012)Recommended
5 stars (Exceptional) Hall\'s performance here is one the best pieces of acting I\'ve seen. Sylvia\'s actions wreck her own life as well as others, but we come to understand exactly why she does what she does. Cumberbatch is also excellent.
Wild GrassWild Grass (Les Herbes Folles) (2008)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough)

Nuit et Broulliard (Night and Fog)Nuit et Broulliard (Night and Fog) (1955)
4 stars (Very Good)
Scarlet Letter, TheScarlet Letter, The (1995)
1 star (Turkey) Possibly the worst desecration of a classic novel ever committed on screen – and I don\'t even like Hawthorne\'s prose.
Wittgenstein (1993)
3 stars (Good Enough) Despite being a narrative fiction, makes a surprisingly good fist of explaining the Philosophical Investigations. Not the Tractatus of course, but that was hardly going to be possible, was it. Also a good story.
VHS $10 | DVD $39.95
WandaWanda (1970)Aro Favourite
3 stars (Good Enough) in classic hollywood, passivity is most always a virtue in its women, as it allows them to be rescued in heroic fashion. Loden asks us to watch how ridiculous such virtues look in a world where children are a burden and men use you.
