Cool stuff on DVD today: '56 Up' and more
05:00 AM, Jul 02, 2013
We have a smaller crop of flicks this week, but I spy a few good ones:
Release o’ the week: 56 Up. I’m very eager to see the latest installment in Michael Apted’s documentary series that has followed a group of people every seven years since they were 7 years old.
- Venus and Serena. The astounding sisters are profiled in this noteworthy doc.
- North & South. A young ‘n’ handsome Patrick Stewart (with hair) stars in this 1975 miniseries.
- The House I Live In. This documentary examines the U.S. war on drugs and how it has affected America’s poor and minority communities.
Blu-ray highlight: Mel Brooks’ The Producers is out in the format today, as is John Landis’ Kentucky Fried Movie.
