Even with its simplistic plot, Avatar is a stunning achievement in next-level cinematic bravado. Watch it on the biggest screen possible. Prepare to be blown away.

Pierrot Le Fou (1965) – Criterion Collection

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 22nd, 2009 - Blu-ray and DVD

Pierrot le Fou is frustrating and annoying, yes, but it is also spectacular and thought-provoking and features a spellbinding performance from Anna Karina.
