Other notable DVDs released in April 2008 that we recommend : -

The Good Night

Released 1st April 2008

One of the few 'dramedies' that actually work, which is down to the excellent cast (especially Simon Pegg and Martin Freeman).

Woody Guthrie: This Machine Kills Fascists

Released 1st April 2008

Welcome re-release of the comprehensive biography detailing the life and times of perhaps the finest American poet since Walt Whitman.

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

Released 8th April 2008

20th Anniversary Edition of the masterpiece that helped to ruin Terry Gilliam's Hollywood reputation by running massively over budget. Whilst lacking some elements of plot, the scale and imagination of the film makes it an absolute joy to watch. Now given a 2 disc release.

War Dance

Released 15th April 2008

The superb 2006 documentary looking at the redemptive power of music in desperate and brutal circumstances in Uganda.

The Backwoods

Released 15th April 2008

The overlooked tale from 2006 starring Gary Oldman and Paddy Considine. A very fine tension building old school thriller.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

Released 29th April 2008

A nicely handled tale of intense internal claustrophobia and the immense freedom of love for life.
