Any DVD suggestions for the upcoming weeks? Feel free to share any recent discoveries, even if they're old releases.

I reserved a copy of:

Community: Season 1

For anyone who hasn't see the show, I highly recommend. It's hilarious. And it has an amazing cast. "Give it up, Winger. Professor Slater doesn't date students... or married asians that drive mopeds" - Senor Chang

The Experiment

Inspired by Philip Zimbardo's Stanford prison experiment of 1971 (if you're not familiar, check it out. Pretty f'in creepy). Can't really go wrong with Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker (at least in my opinion).  

The Secret in Their Eyes

Won Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars this year. Takes place in Buenos Aires. Love Buenos Aires!

Well, I think you should definitely check out the german original upon which The Experiment is based; Das Experiment. ( Haven't seen the remake, but I have a feeling it's yet another case of a remake being a lot worse than the original. Anyway, I highly recommend Das Experiment, which is a great movie.

Wild Grass. Just released on DVD.

Very different sort of comedy. Beautifully directed. The fact that Alain Resnais directed this at 87 is impressive enough. After showing the film at Cannes, they gave him a lifetime achievement award.
