Latest UK DVD releases June 2008

 
Our Top 3 picks of the new UK DVD releases in June 2008 are : -

1. No Country For Old Men

Released 2nd June 2008

A welcome return to form for the Coen Brothers, after the diminishing returns of their 3 previous efforts. The film rightly restored their reputation and gained 4 Oscar wins (Best Direction, Film, Adapted Screenplay & Supporting Actor).

2. Bill Douglas Trilogy

Released 23rd June 2008

The landmark trilogy of My Childhood (1972), My Ain Folk (1973) and My Way Home (1978), the very personal films of the master Bill Douglas. Hopefully this will pave the way for the criminally overdue release of his only feature - the virtually unseen Comrades (1986) - the story of the Tolpuddle Martyrs.

3. Be Kind Rewind

Released 7th June 2008

Directed by Michel Gondry , the man behind one of our favourite films of recent times The Science Of Sleep. For a mainstream attempt this is a notable effort, and amazing Jack Black is only marginally annoying in this film (who'd have thought that would be possible).

Other notable DVD releases we recommend from June 2008 are : -

The Kite Runner

Released 2nd June 2008

A superb adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's complex and intriguing recent best-selling novel .

Smithereens

Released 2nd June 2008

Trashy, teen, pre-brat pack, post punk, big apple, speed fueled debut feature from director Susan Seidelman (who later directed 'Desperately Seeking Susan').

Jesus Camp

Released 9th June 2008

A positively disturbing documentary about youngsters attending a 'Christian' summer camp.


Taxi To The Dark Side

Released 23rd June 2008

This film rightly won this years academy award for best documentary feature, bravely exposing the treatment of prisoners held in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay.

The Boss Of It All

Released 23rd June 2008

Lars Von Triers take on the office comedy format. Immensely entertaining and as nuts as you would expect.

 

Beaufort

Released 23rd June 2008

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film 2008, telling the story of a young Israeli outpost commander defending his outpost.
