DVD releases for March 11

Look, it's Tuesday! Look, it's Tuesday's releases!

No Country for Old Men (2007) Joel and Ethan Coen
Without a doubt, the movie of 2007. No Country not only cleaned up at the Oscars, but also cleaned up with the critics. If you haven't seen this film yet, go out and see it in the theaters - it is still playing and probably will be for a while. If you can't make it to the theater, just buy the darn DVD.

Lake of Fire (2006) Tony Kaye
Hailed as one of the most comprehensive documentaries on the controversial subject of abortion. Everyone has an opinion about abortion, but apparently Kaye keeps his opinion out of the picture. Self-financed and 17 years in the making, Lake of Fire looks at the history of this embattled issue.

Fox Film Noir: Daisy Kenyon (1947), Dangerous Crossing (1953), Black Widow (1954)
Fox has put out over a dozen titles in this series, and here are the most recent three.

Five Days (HBO miniseries)
Five Days is a miniseries that originally aired in the UK, and then aired on HBO last Fall. The five episodes are each dedicated to one random day in an investigation into the disappearance of a young woman. Reviews, which are careful not to give anything away, unanimously speak to the riveting suspense of this series.

Magic Blade (1976) directed by Chor Yuen
Not-to-be-missed classic Shaw Brothers film.

Other releases than you can watch if you want: August Rush (2007), Dan in Real Life (2007).
