Don't Miss It!

Whatever you do, DON'T MISS the next two days of "Dog Days" sales on the Video Watchdog website homepage! Tomorrow's sale -- which goes up promptly at midnight, wherever you are on the globe -- offers a significant collectible never before offered, and we're augmenting this special sale with never-before-seen archival photos and actual excerpts from Donna's personal diary! And coming Monday is (what else?) the biggest sale of the month!

WOODSTOCK reviewed

My review of Warner Home Video's new Blu-ray disc release of Michael Wadleigh's WOODSTOCK is now posted on the SIGHT AND SOUND website, and appears in the current September 2009 issue -- on newsstands now. (Remember newsstands?) This issue also contains capsule assessments of 50 different filmmakers gathered under the rubric "The Mad, the Bad and the Dangerous," to which I contributed critical summaries of Mario Bava, Ken Russell and Andrzej Zulawski... but you won't find those free online. VW's Kim Newman and Brad Stevens also contributed.
