The Perfect Crime: Also known by its more humorous, ironic title, "El Crimen Ferpecto", Alex de la Iglesia's black comedy features the director's patent mix of violence and farce. "Antic and outrageous," wrote the New York Times, "a bright, gaudy and tremendously satisfying ride."

A "gorgeous film to look at, shot and cut with pizzazz and filled with pitch-perfect characters and performances," adds Twitch.

Jonathan Marlow interviewed the director about the film and his other works.

A brand new collection of Ed Wood's films have been released on DVD; The Ed Wood Collection - A Salute to Incompetence.

The first great Bond film in years, a memorable black comedy from Spain, a notorious nudie indie from Hedwig's John Cameron Mitchell, and two masterpieces from Japan highlight this very eclectic week of DVD releases.

On Burmese Harp: Kon Ichikawa's gorgeous meditation on the aftermath of war, as seen through the eyes of a Japanese soldier who becomes a monk while his mates are held captive in a POW camp, comes to us in a newly restored edition from Criterion. Also out today is Ichikawa's follow-up, the darker Fires on the Plain, also set at the end of the war; both films would make a fine double-feature with Letters from Iwo Jima. Harp is an enormously moving work of art; not to be missed.

You suffered through the films once - if at all - and wonder why you should suffer through them again. Well, Mike Nelson, formerly of Mystery Science Theater 3000, and pals, bring you a new reason to suffer through them again. Rifftrax is the brainchild of Nelson and MST3K's Kevin Murphy (voice of Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (2nd voice of Crow), and does what MST couldn't: riff on newer films they never would have gotten the rights to. Read on for more info and for the list of big Hollywood mega-cheese just waiting to be riffed.
