Eraserhead [DVD]

4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

NEW Angels In America (DVD)

3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (765 customer reviews)

Fisher King (Widescreen)
8.  Fisher King (Widescreen) DVD ~ Jeff Bridges

O Lucky Man!
9.  O Lucky Man! DVD ~ Malcolm McDowell
The list author says:

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

Milk
10.  Milk DVD ~ Sean Penn

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

The Elephant Man (Widescreen)
11.  The Elephant Man (Widescreen) DVD ~ Anthony Hopkins

12.  V for Vendetta (Two-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Hugo Weaving

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

The Complete Matrix Trilogy [HD DVD]
13.  The Complete Matrix Trilogy [HD DVD] DVD ~ Keanu Reeves

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

NEW Gandhi (DVD)
14.  NEW Gandhi (DVD)

Babel (Collector's Edition) (Bilingual)

Capote (Bilingual)
17.  Capote (Bilingual) DVD ~ Philip Seymour Hoffman

18.  Shadow of the Vampire (Widescreen) DVD ~ John Malkovich

3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (139 customer reviews)

District 9 (Bilingual)
19.  District 9 (Bilingual) DVD ~ Sharlto Copley

CDN$ 6.98   Used & New from: CDN$ 1.48
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
20.  Perfume: The Story of a Murderer DVD ~ Ben Whishaw
The list author says:
  "A very creepy, deeply disturbing but altogether riveting art film based on the original novel.  A truly great work of filmmaking, beautiful to look at while showing a perversion so utterly twisted."
CDN$ 71.72   Used & New from: CDN$ 9.51
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Avatar (Extended Collector's Edition) (Bilingual)
21.  Avatar (Extended Collector's Edition) (Bilingual) DVD ~ James Cameron

CDN$ 16.98   Used & New from: CDN$ 12.95
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (235 customer reviews)

Life of Brian (Sous-titres français)
22.  Life of Brian (Sous-titres français) DVD ~ Eric Idle
The list author says:
  "Like all things Python, a higly intelligent and razor sharp spoof of the absolute stupidities that people display when simple minds try to enforce noble ideas that are far beyond their comprehension."
CDN$ 29.53   Used & New from: CDN$ 4.95

Elizabeth (Widescreen)
23.  Elizabeth (Widescreen) DVD ~ Cate Blanchett
The list author says:

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (359 customer reviews)

Kingdom Of Heaven (2-Disc Widescreen) (Bilingual)
24.  Kingdom Of Heaven (2-Disc Widescreen) (Bilingual) DVD ~ Orlando Bloom
The list author says:
  "Post 911, with Iraq still occupied, this story of the questionable motives behind the Crusades shows that the West is no more morally ascendant than anyone else.  Another Ridley Scott great."
CDN$ 6.99   Used & New from: CDN$ 1.93
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

The Shawshank Redemption (10th Anniversary 2-Disc Special Edition)
25.  The Shawshank Redemption (10th Anniversary 2-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Tim Robbins

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (681 customer reviews)
