Burning Palms is a dark comedy, interlacing multiple stories where no taboo is left unexplored. Framed as a graphic novel come to life, the film unfolds in five popular neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Each story from the sandy beaches of Santa Monica, to the gated mansions of Holmby Hills, a motley crew of characters careens toward a hilarious and twisted fate in a movie unlike anything you have ever seen before.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 24th, 2011

May 24th, 2011

While we have two first run releases coming out this week, the number one seller according to is a specialty release, and the bulk of the interesting titles are Blu-ray catalog releases.

Getting to the Heart of Limited Releases

January 14th, 2011
