Called "the most natural and least self-conscious screen actor that has ever lived" by critic Pauline Kael, Jeff Bridges has been plying his craft most of his life. With a first role as an infant in his mother Dorothy's arms and a childhood television debut in his father Lloyd's television series Sea Hunt, he burst onto the silver screen in The Last Picture Show in 1971 and was immediately recognized with a Best Supporting Actor nomination. He has created original and memorable characters in notable films since that time. To name but a few – Heaven's Gate, Starman, Jagged Edge, The Fisher King, Fearless, Wild Bill, The Fabulous Baker Boys, The Big Lebowski, and his 2010 Oscar-winning best actor in Crazy Heart. He is an exceptional musician, an artist, a photographer, an occasional vintner and a story teller extraordinaire. He helped found the End Hunger Network in 1983 and continues to work with Share Our Strength, a foundation trying to eradicate childhood hunger.

This sprawling epic of bloodshed and excess, Brian De Palma's update of the classic 1932 crime drama by Howard Hawks, sparked controversy over its outrageous violence when released in 1983. Scarface is a wretched, fascinating car wreck of a movie, starring Al Pacino as a Cuban refugee who rises to the top of Miami's cocaine-driven underworld, only to fall hard into his own deadly trap of addiction and inevitable assassination. Scripted by Oliver Stone and running nearly three hours, it's the kind of film that can simultaneously disgust and amaze you (critic Pauline Kael wrote "this may be the only action picture that turns into an allegory of impotence"), with vivid supporting roles for Steven Bauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Robert Loggia. Universal's special edition digital video disc includes a documentary about the making of the film that features numerous interviews and several deleted scenes. –Jeff Shannon

English, Russian | 2:00:59 | 672 x 288 | 25fps | DivX | mp3, 128 kb/s | 1.47 GB
Genre: Drama | Western

Memorably described by Pauline Kael as "a beautiful pipe dream of a movie," Robert Altman's McCabe & Mrs. Miller reimagines the American West as a muddy frontier filled with hustlers, opportunists, and corporate sharks - a turn-of-the-century model for a 1971 America mired in violence and lies. The screenplay was based on a novel by Edmund Naughton and the movie features a soundtrack of songs by Leonard Cohen. John McCabe (Warren Beatty) wanders into the turn-of-the-century wilderness village known as Presbyterian Church, with vague plans of parlaying his gambling winnings into establishing a fancy casino-brothel-bathhouse. McCabe's business partner is prostitute Mrs. Miller (Julie Christie), who despite her apparent distaste for McCabe helps him achieve his goal. Once McCabe and Mrs. Miller become successful, the town grows and prospers, incurring the jealousy of a local mining company that wants to buy McCabe out.

NTSC DVD-Video | R0 | 4.16 GB @ RS

A filmed record of Pablo Picasso painting numerous canvases for the camera, allowing us to see his creative process at work.

“When we are all dead, you and me and everyone,” said Clouzot to Picasso, “the film will still continue to be projected.”
“One of the most exciting and joyful movies ever made!”— Pauline Kael
“Pure and delightful enchantment — a feast for the eyes.
A film anyone interested in art or the creative process should see.”— Raymond J. Steiner, Art Times
“Amazing. ‘Picasso’ may be the most original art documentary ever made.”— Newsweek
“Rare, precious and irreplaceable. This is an unparalleled opportunity to watch one of the world’s most creative minds — the Twentieth Century equivalent of watching Michelangelo transform the Sistine chapel.”— Catharine Rambeau, Detroit Free Press
