Awarded for its cinematography, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 breaks from the constraints of the documentary form as it contemplates the signs of loss and change in the American South. The culmination of over eleven years of work from first time writer-director Robert Persons, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 marries experimental filmmaking with an accessible, naturalist sensibility to tell the epic story of the clash between nature and man's progress, and reaches a bittersweet reconciliation all its own. Told entirely with images, poetry, and music, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 is unlike any film you have ever seen. A story of maps, dreams, and prayers, it is one last trip down the rabbit hole before it's paved over.

These include two serious drama / thrillers: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy on Blu-ray Combo Pack and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on Blu-ray. However, in the end, I went with the extreme other end of the serious scale with The Muppets's Wocka Wocka Value Pack More...

Will Limited Releases Go on an Incredible Journey?

June 24th, 2011

This week's list of limited releases is dominated by no less than six documentaries, including two opening in twenty or more theaters each.
