Black Narcissus: Criterion Collection —Powell-Pressburger's erotically-charged melodrama follows English nuns (among them Deborah Kerr and the astonishing Kathleen Byron as a sister gone mad) who migrate to the exotic Himalayas to open a convent school but find their vows of chastity and sanity tempted by a local British man wearing the shortest shorts that side of the sexual revolution. This must-see classic offers perhaps the most beautiful cinematography ever and has undergone a digital transfer for its debut on Blu-ray. It's also loaded with bonus features including an audio commentary from Martin Scorsese.
I Do & I Don't—Jane Lynch’s pre-Glee turn as a hard drinking, cigarillo-smoking suburban cougar is the highlight of this screwball comedy about a couple forced to endure pre-marital counseling from a couple ill-equipped to advise them.
The Red Shoes: Criterion Collection — Another of Powell-Pressburger's gorgeous fantasias from the 1940s, this one loosely-based on the Hans Christian Anderson story, follows a young ballerina (the dazzling Moira Shearer) devoted to her art and torn between an idealistic composer and a ruthless impresario who demands perfection. The film is widely considered the greatest and most influential dance film of all time and the ballet sequence at the center of the film is almost hallucinatory. The Red Shoes makes its debut on Blu-ray and contains a bevy of bonus features including interviews and Jeremy Irons reading the original fairy tale.
