Pickpocket This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Pickpocket - Robert Bresson's hypnotic ode to spiritual transcendence is a fascinating film, especially after one reads about the director's approach to filmmaking -- no professional actors, no 'performing' or emotions allowed; Call Her Savage - A notorious pre-Code pot-boiler resurfaces to show us a great silent actress struggling to survive in the talkies; and Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! - Pedro Almodóvar's film is a racy anti-PC comedy- asylum graduate Antonio Banderas stalks and imprisons ex- porn star and junkie Victoria Abril in an apartment, to wait until she falls in love with him. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 This week several great movies are coming out, including a few that shouldn't be missed: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 [review] - this second film from director Marc Webb is a more confident outing, and Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy steal the show; Y tu mama tambien [review] - It's been thirteen years since its release, but this film doesn't feel dated at all, and the good people at Criterion top themselves with this excellent dual-format presentation; and Toy Story of Terror [review] - the movie is a lot of fun and Disney has added plenty of solid supplementals for Pixar geeks to enjoy. Other reviews of note include Leviathan [review], Sorceress [review], and Varsity Blood [review].
