W. filmmaker’s
research and annotations guide


W. is a film that didn’t really do anything. It didn’t take a stand, it didn’t alienate anyone and it didn’t bring Oliver Stone back to the prominence of his earlier years. What it did was show the world that Josh Brolin can still work his ass off in a film and be ignored. The DVD shares some of these traits. You get one amazing special feature in regards to the research and annotations guide that is accessible via DVD-Rom.

But, you’re also hit with the up and down of Stone’s commentary track. A lot of noise has been made over the Dangerous Dynasty semi-doc that takes up most of the special feature space on the release. It’s nothing more than talking heads trying to squeeze their way closer to the microphone. I’d recommend picking it up on Blu-Ray for the 1080 transfer, but the DVD should work as a rental for those that are on the fence.



MIRACLE AT ST. ANNA



Special Features:
  • Deeds Not Words featurette
  • The Buffalo Soldiers Experience featurette
  • Deleted Scenes


Miracle at St. Anna is a rare kind of film. A Spike Lee joint that showed the man growing outside of the boundaries in which he became trapped. Sure, there was the success of Inside Man and the polarizing racial polemics of Bamboozled. But, this film manages to strike upon gold. A World War II story that shows the emotion of minority soldiers in a foreign land, as they try to make sense of an incident that’s alien to them. The DVD is rather featureless, but you get some decent EPK material that tries to put the film into a historical context.




FROZEN RIVER



Special Features:

  • Commentary with director Courtney Hunt and producer Heather Rae


Frozen River
pulled that neat hat trick where the smallest indie flick gets Oscar recognition.Sure, it was just a handful of nomination. But, that’s better than most small-time debuts ever receive. The whole film is rather genius. A middle-aged woman is confounded by the current housing bullshit. So, she teams up with an Indian woman to smuggle illegals across the border and onto an Indian reservation. It makes for an interesting viewing and one that I look forward to discussing with more people. So, go out there and pick this up.
