DVD MIKE LEIGH COLLECTION
DVD Honeydripper [DVD]  [English] [Region 1]
"The film evocatively charts a time and place where change has been a longtime coming and buoyantly imagines a turning point where, at least musically, anything is possible."Los Angeles Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "All the strands that fed into rock 'n' roll -- R&B, blues, jazz, gospel and country -- run through the action, finally coming together in the jam session that forms the film's triumphant unfettered climax."Total Film "[T]his is a warm, sweet-natured movie....Glover holds the centre with weary dignity, and there's a touchingly vulnerable performance from Yaya DaCosta..."Sight and Sound 3 stars out of 5 -- "Throw in a fledgling R&B soundtrack and earthy photography courtesy of Mike Leigh regular Dick Pope, and you've got a gentle, enjoyable musical fable."Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]s always with Sayles, the good stuff is in the characterisations. Glover is a treat as Pine Top, and there's a fine comic turn from Charles S. Dutton as his long-suffering side-kick..."Uncut

Chicago Sun-Times "...[PATTON] still mesmerizes on the strength of George C. Scott's chew-your-behind performance as George S. Patton..."USA Today "[A] riveting portrayal of rampant egomania with Scott fully deserving of his best actor Oscar." Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's certainly a great performance from Scott, a seamless, pity-free portrayal." Total Film
CD Last Soul Company [Box] [Box]
Vibe (4/99, p.186) - "...the last real source for home-style blues and soul....Malaco's influence echoes through the gold-and-platinum-gilded hallways of southern hip hop..."
