The fifth season of Weeds may not be the series at its peak, but I am looking forward to catching up on the adventures of Nancy Botwin in this suburban dark comedy.
After spending the weekend steaming Criterion Collection releases over Netflix, I am definitely looking forward to their release of Steven Soderbergh's Che, which contains the additional documentaries and interviews that the series is known for. Chevolution, a documentary about Alberto Korda Diaz's iconic photo of Che Guevera, looks like the perfect companion piece to the biopic.
Chantal Akerman in the Seventies collects five feature films from the noted Belgian director.
2081, a short film adapted from Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s story "Harrison Bergeron," is on store shelves tomorrow.
Among the week's documentary releases, two hold particular interest. No Impact Man follows one family's attempt to live for a year in New York with as little environmental impact as possible. Outrage examines the political (and non-political) agendas behind legislators' pushes for anti-gay legislation.
Add the three Matt Damon Jason Bourne films (Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy, and Bourne Ultimatum) are out on Blu-ray this week, as well as two Thomas Paul Anderson films, Boogie Nights and Magnolia.
