DVD New Releases: September 21, 2010

Alien Autopsy (2006) Anthony McPartlin, Declan Donnelly, Bill Pullma, Harry Dean Stanton. Based on a true story, this quirky film centers around two guys who believe they have film evidence about an alien cover-up and government conspiracy regarding the famed Roswell incident in 1947 (In July 1947, the U.S. military issued a press release announcing that an "unidentified flying object" had crash landed on a remote estate outside of Roswell, New Mexico. Four hours later, they retracted the story, stating that in fact the debris was that of a weather balloon. The retraction sparked one of the biggest conspiracy theories of the 20th Century. Rumors were rife of an autopsy carried out on alien life forms carried away from the scene). What ensues is nothing short of a rollercoaster ride for the two unlikely lads from London.

Eclipse Series 24: The Actuality Dramas of Allan King Canadian director Allan King is one of cinema's best-kept secrets. Over the course of 50 years, King shuttled between features and shorts, big-screen cinema and episodic television, comedy and drama, fiction and nonfiction. Within this remarkably varied career, it was with his cinema-verite-style documentaries - his "actuality dramas," as he called them - that he left his greatest mark on film history. These startlingly intimate studies of lives in flux - emotionally troubled children, warring spouses, and the terminally ill - are riveting, at times emotionally overwhelming, and always depicted without narration or interviews. Humane, cathartic, and important, Allan King's spontaneous portraits of the everyday demand to be seen. Includes "Warrendale" (1967, about a home for psychologically disturbed young people), "A Married Couple" (1969, a jaw-dropping documentary of a marriage gone haywire), "Come On Children" (1972, 10 teenagers -- five boys and five girls -- leave behind parents, school, and all other authority figures to live on a farm for 10 weeks), "Dying at Grace" (2003, five terminally ill cancer patients allowed the director access to their final months and days inside the Toronto Grace Health Care Center), "Memory for Max, Claire, Ida and Company" (2005, follows the daily routines of eight patients suffering from dementia and memory loss in a home for geriatric care); $69.95.
