Movies have been feasting on them as long as there have been movies. Fellini made “Fellini’s Casanova” with Donald Sutherland as the rake of the Renaissance, but it was surprisingly stodgy for Fellini. The same certainly can’t be said for Lasse Hallström’s lively, funny—and underestimated—“Casanova” of 2005.

Created by Korean American animator David Chung, the show kept coming back again and again, reaching cult status after three seasons that were basically unconnected. In fact, in the first season Aeon got killed in each episode. Fans rejoiced and dreaded the movie version of their heroine. Hewing to its science fiction roots, “Æon Flux” is set in Bregna, the last city left alive on earth after a terrible disease killed ninety-nine percent of the world’s population. Walls keep nature at bay. Bregna is the world’s most perfect city, providing everything its citizens want or need. Unfortunately, there is a ...

Technically, the DVD is fine, with the careful color palette of director Anand Tucker, cinematographer Peter Suschitzky and production designer William Arnold well-rendered. The color scheme is discussed in the expert “making of” documentary on the disc, and in Tucker’s intelligent, interesting commentary track.

Parish hasn’t written in twenty years and lives a reclusive life with his daughters in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Sent to track down Parish by his boss Mr. Benton (Rhys-Davies), Jeremy finds Parish an ornery, protective sort with a prankish sense of humor. Initially incurring Parish’s ire with his slick, businessman’s approach, Jeremy begins a long process to win Parish’s trust, and in the result finds in him an encouraging mentor on life as well as writing. As Jeremy begins to unlock his own repressed writer’s ...

Unbilled: Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson release year: 1998 film rating: Four and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren While not a hit, this movie pleased virtually everyone who saw it in theaters, and it's only going to win more followers on video -- particularly in this terrific DVD. There are plenty of extras, which is easy enough to do, if you have the footage, but here they're particularly well organized, with interesting deleted scenes, intelligent commentary by director Steven Soderbergh and writer Scott Frank, and well-chosen clips from the "electronic press kit" created to publicize the film, including some words from Elmore Leonard, author of the original novel.
