Michael / Silver Tongues

Two great films, if you can take them.


Drama

Rod Lott
My wife barely can stand — and sometimes refuses — to watch TV shows like The Office and Curb Your Enthusiasm because they make her too nervous. Therefore, she would hate Michael and Silver Tongues, two new-to-DVD entries in discomfort cinema. I recommend them both, while acknowledging they are far from the easiest of watches.

The Chapman Report

The women of 'The Chapman Report' are as uncomfortable talking about sex as they are having it.


Drama

Rod Lott
Judging by the 1962 portrayed by The Chapman Report, everybody smoked cigarettes, LPs of poetry readings were a hot commodity, and the female orgasm had yet to be invented. While this film from legendary old-Hollywood director George Cukor (My Fair Lady) was determined to be earnest and serious in its time, it's quite a hoot today.

The Heineken Kidnapping

'Heineken? F**k that s**t! Pabst! Blue! Ribbon!'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Beer brewing can be a risky business. Consider Alfred Heineken: In 1983, the CEO of the Dutch corporation that bears his name was kidnapped and held for a sizable ransom, all of which is dramatized in the near-epic film The Heineken Kidnapping. It's more engrossing than its generic title lets on.

Full Metal Jacket: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Book

More than just the movie that made ‘me so horny’ a household phrase.


Drama

Rod Lott
When Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam film, Full Metal Jacket, hit theaters in the summer of 1987, I was all of 16 years old. Even I could tell it was far better than Oliver Stone’s Platoon, which by then had won four Academy Awards; by comparison, Jacket would be nominated for one, Best Adapted Screenplay, and lose it to The Last Emperor.

Celeste & Jesse Forever


Comedy

Rod Lott
Any cries of nepotism in the case of Rashida Jones officially can be buried, and the dirt above patted with a shovel for good measure.

Goats

No kidding: David Duchovny's great in this.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Prep-school movies are the ultimate cinematic representations of White People Problems. Rich, entitled kids suffering because — in the case of Goats — they can’t score weed.
