DVD releases for 7-17

Notable releases this week include:

The Hills Have Eyes 2 - Gratuitous gore? Check. Unknown cast? Check. Limited budget? Check. Iraq metaphor? Check. It apparently contains all the ingredients of a successful contemporary horror movie (unfortunately). What else do you need to know? It's a sequel of a remake. The real highlight this week? Check out ACE IN THE HOLE, one of Billy Wilder's most important films. Expect a fantastic transfer and insightful extras courtesy of Criterion (who else?).

Also this week:

  • Avenue Montaigne

  • Factory Girl

  • Baxter

  • Ace in the Hole

  • Poison Friends

  • Basic Tsukamoto

  • Chalkdust Memories
