Latest USA DVD releases March 2008

Our Top 3 picks of the new USA DVD releases of March 2008 are : -

1. No Country For Old Men

Released 11th March 2008

Deserved multi nominated Oscar winner for The Coen brothers. A welcome return to form for the duo after some extremely lamentable recent attempts.

2. The Ice Storm

Released 12th March 2008

A superb Criterion release of Ang Lee's masterly tale of the early 1970s cultural confusion, explored by some superb performances.

3. Atonement

Released 18th March 2008

Superb adaptation of Ian Mckewans classic story. James McAvoy in particular gives an excellent performance. The film is only slightly spoilt by the many "this ones for the Oscars" scenes.


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

Superb film from Mongolia. Tells the tale of a shepherd following his destiny to become a shaman.
