Notable Releases: Split, House, and Ludwig
Split Several great movies and programs have come out recently, including a few that shouldn't be missed: Split - M. Night Shyamalan take a step back in the right direction with this film that builds an enormous amount of suspense at unexpected moments and remains unsettling despite its admittedly ridiculous premise; House: Two Stories - both movies remain plenty entertaining and the presentation here, along with the extras, is impressive; and Ludwig - Luchino Visconti's movie has its flaws to be certain but Helmet Burger is great in the titular lead role and the film really is a feast for the eyes.

New Reviews: Kiss of Death, The Delinquents, and Ride The High Country
Kiss of Death (1947) Some cool discs have been reviewed over the past week. Check out these recent entries: Kiss of Death (1947) - a great new restoration of a film noir classic... Richard Widmark's gleeful psychopath is iconic and unforgettable, while Victor Mature's soulful lead performance proves he was more than just a handsome beefcake; The Delinquents - director Robert Altman’s first feature istechnically proficient, mostly well-acted, and definitely not the exploitation "B" its title and lurid advertising suggests; and Ride The High Country - an early gem by a director Sam Peckinpah, this film is a solid Western with terrific performances, very little fat, and a memorable score by George Bassman.

New Reviews: How to Succeed in Business, Lifeboat, and Ali & Nino
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries.

Silence (2016) Several great movies and programs have come out recently, including a few that shouldn't be missed: Silence (2016) - Martin Scorsese's film is a complex, impressive drama about Jesuit priests who travel to 17th Century Japan to find their mentor and spread the gospel at great personal risk; Blow-Up - surreal, often methodical and gorgeously filmed, this movie is undoubtedly the work of a master artist, complete with a vagueness that leaves it open for interpretation; and 20th Century Women - a thoughtful, entertaining, and nostalgic look at the changing times of the 1970's.
