DVD of the Day

So, I've become quite the bitter, cantankerous prick in my past few updates, and for that I apologize (except to James Toback, of course). There are enough frustrated, whiny assholes in the world already. I promise to abstain until the next Neil Labute, Kevin Smith, and/or Edward Burns picture is released. And now we return to our normal programming.

DVD of the Day:

Black Peter by Milos Forman

Why this was never previously available on home video is beyond me, but thanks to the kind folks at Facets, that day has finally arrived.

This film is perfection. Milos Forman captures the immediacy, the pathetic hilarity, the awkwardness, and the confusion of adolescence with stunning clarity. It's everything I love about cinema--naturalistic, honest, poignant, and, above all, humane.

Put this in your Netflix queue right now. You can thank me later.
