Stalag 17

Stalag 17 is a crude, cliché-ridden glimpse of a Nazi prison camp that I hated to see end.

Manny Farber, The Nation

The Mystery Of DB Cooper

These brilliant characters, some deeply entangled in the story, some distant from it but connected, are believers. This film asks what keeps them believing, and it is a far bigger question than the mystery itself.

Rebecca Nicholson, Guardian

The Mystery Of DB Cooper

I like the intellectual exercise of The Mystery of D.B. Cooper and how unavoidably unsatisfying Dower's approach is intended to be.

Dan Fienberg, Hollywood Reporter


To Live and Die in Hollywood

Thanks in part to Huston's performance, ivansxtc. is not a movie easily dismissed.

Michael J. Casey, Michael J. Cinema


Robert Altman's idiosyncratic, undervalued musical comedy receives a beautiful transfer for its Blu-ray debut, but the dearth of extras leaves much to be desired.

Derek Smith, Slant Magazine

The Irishman

Criterion's exacting presentation of Martin Scorsese's late-inning masterpiece is a testament to the enduring value of physical media, ironically given that the film is a Netflix title.

Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
