DVD & BLU-RAY PICKS

Miller’s Crossing (20th Century Fox Home Ent.): One of the Coen Brothers finest films is this Prohibition era drama about a man (Gabriel Byrne) pulling the strings between two rival gang bosses Leo (Albert Finney) and Casper (Jon Polito). Stylish, brilliantly written and acted – with killer supporting turns from John Tuturro and Marcia Gay Harden – it also contains a timeless score by Carter Burwell. [Buy it on Blu-ray or DVD at Amazon UK]

Dark Star (Fabulous Films): John Carpenter’s ultra low budget debut is a sci-fi about a space ship and its crew on a mission to destroy “unstable planets” which might threaten future colonization. It stars Brian Narelle, Cal Kuniholm, Dre Pahich and co-writer Dan O’Bannon. [Buy it on Blu-ray or DVD at Amazon UK]
