Amazon Says: Writer-director Brian De Palma "maintains a fever pitch from start to finish" (Leonard Maltin) with this "steamily libidinous and extremely bloody thriller" (Newsweek)! Starring Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson and Nancy Allen (in a Golden Glober-nominated performance), this taut psycho-sexual chiller is a razor-sharp tale of passion, madness and murder that's as "scary as the devil [with] suspense to spare" (Playboy)! Fashionable Manhattan therapist Dr. Robert Elliott (Caine) faces the most terrifying moment of his life, when a psychotic killer begins attacking the women (Dickinson and Allen) in his life- with a straight razor stolen from his office. Desperate to find the murderer before anyone else is hurt, Elliott is soon drawn into a dark and disturbing world of chilling desires. And as the doctor edges closer to the terrible truth, he finds himself lost in a provocative and deadly maze of obsession, deviance and deceit- where the most harmless erotic fantasies...can become the most deadly sexual nightmares! less...

Amazon Says: Jean Arthur, Joel McCrea and Charles Coburn star in this delightful comedy set during World War II about a single working-girl who, because of a significant housing shortage, sublets half her Washington D.C. apartment to two men for some very merry and very romantic results. For director George Stevens, THE MORE THE MERRIER would be the final film in his three picture deal with Columbia (the others were Penny Serenade and The Talk Of the Town), as well as his last project before entering the service in the Army Signal Corps film unit. THE MORE THE MERRIER featured terrific performances from its three stars and especially from Charles Coburn, who earned himself a 1943 Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor. Jean Arthur, who Stevens called "one of the greatest comediennes the screen has ever seen," garnered an Academy Award nomination as Best Actress. The film, written specifically for Arthur, also received nominations for Best Motion Picture Story, Best Screenplay, Best Picture and Be less...

Amazon Says: Renato (La grande bouffe’s Ugo Tognazzi) and Albin (Diabolique’s Michel Serrault)—a middle-aged gay couple who are the manager and star performer at a glitzy drag club in St. Tropez—agree to hide their sexual identities, along with their flamboyant personalities and home decor, when the ultraconservative parents of Renato’s son’s fiancée come for a visit. This elegant comic scenario kicks off a wild and warmhearted farce about the importance of nonconformity and the beauty of being true to oneself. A modest French comedy that became a breakout art-house smash in America, Edouard Molinaro’s La Cage aux Folles inspired a major Broadway musical and the blockbuster remake The Birdcage. But with its hilarious performances and ahead-of-its-time social message, there’s nothing like the audacious, dazzling original movie. less...

Amazon Says: THE BIG CITY (Mahanagar), set in mid-1950s Calcutta and directed by the great Satyajit Ray (The Music Room), follows the personal triumphs and frustrations of Arati (Madhabi Mukherjee), who decides, despite the initial protests of her bank-clerk husband, to take a job to help support their family. With remarkable sensitivity and attention to the details of everyday working-class life, Ray gradually builds a powerful human drama that is at once a hopeful morality tale and a commentary on the identity of the contemporary Indian woman. less...

Amazon Says: Linda (Julianne Moore, Game Change, The Kids Are All Right) is a forty-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town. She shares a small apartment with two cats and her rich collection of great literature. She maintains no close personal relationships aside from those she has with her favorite authors. Her life is far less complicated than the dramas she devours on the page, and she likes it that way. But Linda s simple life changes when former star pupil Jason (Michael Angarano, Haywire, Red State) returns to town after failing as a playwright in New York. Pressured by his overbearing father (Greg Kinnear, Little Miss Sunshine, Stuck in Love), Jason may be forced to give up his dreams and go to law school. Unwilling to let that happen, Linda mounts his play at her school with flamboyant drama teacher Carl (Nathan Lane, The Producers, The Birdcage) directing, and puts her own reputation and teaching career on the line.
