Amazon Says: LOVE & ANARCHY: In pre-World War II Italy, the employees of a popular Roman bordello realize that a new arrival (Giancarlo Giannini, Hannibal, Casino Royale) is planning to assassinate Mussolini. When one of the girls (Lina Polito, All Screwed Up) falls in love with the man, she's torn between saving him and saving her country. This is the film that put Italian director Lina Wertmueller (Swept Away) on the map of world cinema. Giannini won a Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival for his portrayal. THE SEDUCTION ON MIMI: Voting against the Mafia in what he thinks is a secret ballot costs Sicilian laborer Mimi (Giancarlo Giannini, Man on Fire, Quantum of Solace ) his livelihood in Lina Wertmuller's (Swept Away) dark comedy. He leaves his wife, flees to Turin and romances a Communist organizer (Mariangela Melato, Swept Away, Flash Gordon) -- but he just can't shake the Mafia. When they lure Mimi back to Sicily with a better job, he must keep his lover -- and love child -- under wraps. That's when his wife announces she's pregnant. ALL SCREWED UP: All Screwed Up is the exuberantly funny tale about the often tragic adventures of a group of young immigrants who have come to Milan to make their fortunes. In addition to Adelina and Carletto, there are Gigi, who drifts into a life of petty crimes, Isotta, who becomes a prostitute, and Sante and Mariuccia, who marry in bliss and, in two years, are something less than blessed with seven children (one set of twins followed by quintuplets). They all soon discover that Milan is a town where everything is in its place but nothing is in order. First Time EVER on DVD! less...

Amazon Says: Directed by Oscar-nominated James Franco from a screenplay by James Franco and Matt Rager, AS I LAY DYING is adapted from the 1930 classic American novel by William Faulkner. The story chronicles the Bundren family as they traverse the Mississippi countryside to bring the body of their deceased mother Addie to her hometown for burial. Addie's husband Anse and their children, Cash, Darl, Jewel, Dewey Dell, and the youngest one Vardaman, leave the farm on a carriage with her coffin - each affected by Addie's death in a profound and different way. Their road trip to Jefferson, some forty miles away, is disrupted by every antagonistic force of nature or man: flooded rivers, injury and accident, a raging barn fire, and not least of all -- each individual character s personal turmoil and inner commotion which at times threaten the fabric of the family more than any outside force. less...

Amazon Says: November 22nd, 1963 was a day that changed the world forever – when young American President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. We follow in almost real time a handful of individuals forced to make split-second decisions after this incomprehensible event that would change their lives and forever alter our world’s landscape: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital, the chief of the Dallas Secret Service, the unwitting cameraman who captured what has become the most watched and examined film in history, the FBI Agents who had gunman Lee Harvey Oswald within their grasp and Vice President Lyndon Johnson who had to take control of a country in a moment’s notice. Thrust into a scenario of unprecedented drama with unimaginable consequences, these key characters respond with shock, outrage, determination and courage. Woven together, their seemingly disparate perspectives make one of the most thrilling and powerful stories never told. From producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman and writer/director Peter Landesman, Parkland is the true story behind a tragic day in history you thought you knew, but didn’t, and couldn’t, until now… 50 years later. less...

Amazon Says: In this wry parable, a kingdom is divided into the three castes: the impeccably painted Alldunns who reside in a majestic palace; the Halfies who the Painter has left incomplete; and the untouchable Sketchies, simple charcoal outlines who are banished to the cursed forest. Chastised for her forbidden love for an Alldunn and shamed by her unadorned face, Halfie Claire runs away into the forest. Her beloved Ramo and best friend Lola journey after her, passing between the forbidden Death Flowers that guard the boundaries of the forest and arriving finally at the very edge of the painting where they tumble through the canvas and into the Painter s studio. The abandoned workspace is strewn with paintings, each containing its own animated world and in a feast for both the eyes and imagination, they explore first one picture and then another, attempting to discover just what the Painter has in mind for all his creations. Special Features: Making Of Featurette; Concept Art Slideshow; Original French Audio Track with English Subtitles; U.S. Trailer less...

A tragic family past, a mysteriously locked room, cold chills, bumps in the night—this gothic Hollywood classic has it all. less...
