DVD From Hell [DVD] [Single Disc; Lenticular]
"...The Hughes Brothers' goal here is to make an epic of savagery, and they are brilliant at ambience and details....A conspiracy-theory thriller with brains and a heart..." New York Times "...Sensational and accomplished....A horror film of genuine artistry and excitement. The Hughes brothers work with commanding restraint..." Entertainment Weekly "...Impressively realized, confirming the Brothers as formidable visual stylists....The shadow-drenched Prague studio sets help sustain a sense of claustrophobia well suited to a tale of endemic corruption..." Sight and Sound "...It's a true auteur movie, perfectly in sync with the brothers' previous output and delivered with a dry, subliminal message..." Total Film "...A rich, atmospheric film....The movie feels dark, clammy and exhilarating -- it's like belonging to a secret club where you can have a lot of fun but might get into trouble..." Chicago Sun-Times
Blu-ray The Book of Eli [Blu-ray] [1 disc] 
"[A]n intense, surprisingly serious study of a man making his way through a wilderness of catastrophic destruction and human cruelty like a latter-day prophet."Hollywood Reporter "A lean, stark, surprisingly effective headliner in Hollywood's ongoing apoc-a-pala-looza."Los Angeles Times "An attractively grizzled Denzel Washington plays the enigmatic Eli, a true believer with quasi-mystical fighting skills..."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Directing team The Hughes Brothers have chosen ELI as their first film in nearly a decade and though it certainly delivers all the fireworks you might come to expect from their earlier work, its religious undertones separate it from the pack..."Box Office "The Hughes brothers have a vivid way with imagery here, as in their earlier films....The film looks and feels good, and Washington's performance is the more uncanny the more we think back over it."Chicago Sun-Times "One of the clever conceits of the script by first-time Gary Whitta is that there are only a handful of people still alive who remember how things were 'before'..."Variety "[A]n intense, surprisingly serious study of a man making his way through a wilderness of catastrophic destruction and human cruelty like a latter-day prophet."Hollywood Reporter "[Washington] beautifully inhabits the film's titular hero, a laconic, solitary gunslinger who's also a custodian of a mysterious tome..."Washington Post "THE BOOK OF ELI takes the form of an ultra-violent graphic novel, with Washington as a steely Man With No Name type who cuts a righteous path through the gullets of sinners and savages." -- Grade: BA.V. Club "[A]mong films about material scarcity, religion and power, it compares favourably with THERE WILL BE BLOOD."Sight and Sound "The real draw is the spaghetti western homages, Tom Waits bartering goods and hand grenades being 10-pin bowled under trucks."Total Film
CD The Voice of Langston Hughes *
Rolling Stone (4/20/95, p.78) - 3 Stars - Good - "...[Langston Hughes'] slightly nasal voice maintains the deliberate simplicity that makes his poetry so elegant and accessible..."Vibe (5/95, p.97) - "At a time when everybody's trying to be a poet, it's refreshing to hear the rhythmic words, colorful imagery, and political sentiment of a truly old-school literary genius....especially poignant in this era--one still plagued with racial injustice and lack of integrity..."Living Blues (9-10/95, p.104) - "...A nicely assembled and annotated aural introduction to a prolific and important African-American writer."
CD Stax Story
Entertainment Weekly (12/1/00, p.98) - "...A well-picked assortment....No soul-music fan should deny himself this..." - Rating: B+Living Blues (1-2/01, p.83) - "...An overview of the Memphis label's hitmaking activities from beginning to end..."Mojo (Publisher) (12/00, p.96) - "...Sublime soul music....as familiar as favorite old shoes, and as funky..."
