Monday Blu(e)s And DVD

A pair of very different police procedurals headline this weeks offerings, in what is a healthy selection overall.

Disc Of The Week

 

Once Upon A Time In Anatolia -  Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s latest work is arguably his masterpiece. Elegant in execution, yet dark at its heart, Once Upon A Time In Anatolia is one of the real greats of 2012 thus far.

21 Jump Street - Something of an unexpected success, at least from the perspective of those that had written off this adaptation of the 1980′s television series. A solid package of extras round out a nice disc.

Rampart - Oren Moverman’s Rampart is a mixed affair. While the lead performance from an on-form Woody Harrelson is great, and the technique somewhat interesting, ultimately the whole thing never really comes together.

God Bless America – Of the thirty minutes or so that we’ve seen of the film we were mightily impressed. Bobcat Goldthwait’s attack on conservative america is just that, an attack, and is filled with the sort of vitriol reserved for the grandest of critiques. While perhaps a little too one-note for some, it worked for us, and recalled Mike Judge’s Idiocracy and Office Space heavily. 


Comic Book Independents: The Creative Power Of Graphic Novels – A placeholder online is the first we’ve heard of this documentary, but we’re now keen to check it out.  

 

Jurassic Shark – Jurassic Shit.
