What DVD have you just watched?

On the centenary of the october Revolution, it seems a good time to revisit Segei Eisenstein's silent film about the evens in Odessa in 1905. Dated in some ways, and definitely propaganda rather than fact, it's still a textbook example of greating cutting, and still a powerful cinematic statement.

Oh, memories of my student days! That pram scene  still sends shivers down my spine. 

"Songs from the second floor"

An absurdist drama pieces together unrelated vignettes to craft an arresting, abstract portrait of life at the turn of the millennium. A magician accidentally bisects an audience member; a boy writes poetry nonstop until he's committed to a psychiatric facility; a man torches his furniture store, then goes into business selling crucifixes.
