Other notable DVDs released in December 2007 that we recommend : -

Lady Chatterley

Released 4th December 2007

The faithfully made 2006 european movie adaptation of D H Lawrence's notorious book. A most accomplished adaptation, that gets very close to nailing the spirit if the book.

Cocalero

Released 11th December 2007

A remarkable true story of Aymara Indian Evo Morales who, backed by coca leaf farmers, travels through the Andes and Amazon in jeans and sneakers, leading a historic bid to become Bolivia's first Indigenous president.

December Boys

Released 11th December 2007

Daniel Radcliffe (Master Harry Potter himself) stars in this rather good, if overblown, tale of four orphan boys. This could have been even better in the hands of a true indie auteur, but there is still a lot to admire this film for under its heavy gloss.


Two-Lane Blacktop

Released 11th December 2007

The cars are most definitely not the stars here. Fantastically minimal dialogue and the majestic vistas of road a truly beautiful film.

Once

Released 18th December 2007

An innovative love story set in Dublin. An obvious low budget helps concentrate the characters and dialogue into a rather good little film.

Deep Water

Released 18th December 2007

Truth is infinitely better and stranger than fiction. The story of Donald Crowhurst a full time dreamer, and single handed yachtsmen who in 1968 set sail to take part in a single handed non-stop round the world yacht race. For a man who had staked everything on the race, he could not afford to lose.
