(First Run Features)
Master French director Claude Chabrol's sardonic 2004 film based on a Ruth Rendell novel. A young man (BenoÃ®t Magimel) falls for a strange girl, who then asks him to murder a stranger to prove his love for her.
COLOR ME KUBRICK: A TRUE . . . ISH STORY OF THE WORLD'S BIGGEST LIAR
John Malkovich has a field day in this comedy, playing the flamboyant Alan Conway, based on a crackpot London queen who pretended to be Stanley Kubrick and tricked a lot of young men out of their pants and wallets before getting caught.
Great 1944 version of the Charlotte Bronte classic, starring Joan Fontaine as Jane, with a masterful performance by Orson Welles as the brooding Edward Rochester. Look out for a young Elizabeth Taylor as Jane's doomed young friend.
Rare 1969 thriller by Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci (The Beyond) about an arrogant doctor (Jean Sorel), his mistress (Elsa Martinelli) and a stripper (the gorgeous Marisa Mell) who mysteriously resembles the doctor's dead wife. A fabulous new print with a terrific, jazzy score by Riz Ortolani.
JAMES CAGNEY: THE SIGNATURE COLLECTION
James Cagney shines as the down-on-his-luck showman staging cadets' shows in The West Point Story (1950); as a Canadian flyboy in Captains of the Clouds (1942); as a soldier in The Fighting 69th (1940); tangling with Ann Sheridan on a Central American plantation in Torrid Zone (1940); and weirdly paired with Bette Davis in the screwball comedy The Bride Came C.O.D. (1941).
THE DORIS DAY COLLECTION: VOLUME TWO
Vivacious songstress Doris Day began her screen career at Warner Bothers in these light romantic comedies. Whether paired with Jack Carson in Romance on the High Seas (1948) and My Dream Is Yours (1949), Gordon MacRae in On Moonlight Bay (1951) and By the Light of the Silvery Moon (1953), Robert Cummings in Lucky Me (1954), Danny Thomas in I'll See You in My Dreams (1951) or Bugs Bunny (in a dream sequence in My Dream Is Yours), she is always incandescent and enchanting.
DEATH OF A PRESIDENT
Fake 2006 documentary by Gabriel Range about the assassination of George W. Bush. A nicely executed whodunit thriller rather than a political diatribe.
GREEN FOR DANGER
Sensational 1946 wartime mystery set in a rural English hospital about the mysterious murder of a patient (the local postman) who dies on the operating table. With an entertaining Alistair Sims as the cocky Scotland Yard police inspector and Trevor Howard as a doctor under suspicion.
TWIN PEAKS: COMPLETE SECOND SEASON
David Lynch's seriously demented 1990-'91 TV series about the death of Laura Palmer and the weird denizens of a logging town.
THE NAKED CITY
Cracking 1948 Jules Dassin film with Barry Fitzgerald as a Manhattan detective tracking down clues to a murder. Groundbreaking at the time for its on-location New York shooting.
