Jackboots on Whitehall (2010) Voices of Ewan McGregor, Alan Cumming, Dominic West, Rosamund Pike, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall, Richard E. Grant. "Team America" meets "Inglourious Basterds" in this supermarionation World War II farce from Scottish brothers Edward and Rory McHenry. On the South Coast of England, Chris, a young farm worker, dreams of the chance to join the army and fight in exciting new lands. His chance comes when the three top Nazi leaders, the enormous Goering, the malnourished Goebbels and the scarily campy Himmler, hatch a plan to invade England by drilling under the English Channel and into the heart of London. Extras: Behind-the-scenes footage; interviews with the Creators; featurettes: "The Swastikas," "Bad Day to be a Nazi," "Hitler's Rat Pack," "The Nazi Hotties", "Explosions," "Voiceovers." (Flatiron Films/New Video).

Life During Wartime (2010) In "Life During Wartime," independent filmmaker Todd Solondz explores contemporary American existence and the nature of forgiveness with his customary dry humor and queasy precision. The film functions as a distorted mirror image of Solondz's acclaimed 1998 dark comedy "Happiness," its emotionally stunted characters now groping for the possibility of change in a post-9/11 world. "Happines's" grim New Jersey setting is transposed to sunny Florida, but the biggest twist is that new actors fill the roles originated in the earlier filmincluding Shirley Henderson, Allison Janney and Ally Sheedy as alarmingly dissimilar sisters, and Ciaran Hinds hauntingly embodying a reformed pedophile. Shot in expressionistic tones by cinematographer extraordinaire Ed Lachman ("Far From Heaven"), Solondz's film finds the humor in the tragic and the tragic in the everyday. New digital transfer, supervised and approved by director of photography Ed Lachman, with DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition. Extras: "Ask Todd," an audio Q&A with director Todd Solondz; "Making Life During Wartime," a new documentary featuring interviews with actors Shirley Henderson, Allison Janney, Michael Lerner, Paul Reubens, Ally Sheedy, and Michael Kenneth Williams, and on-set footage of the actors and crew; new video piece in which Lachman discusses his work on the film; a booklet featuring an essay by film critic David Sterritt.
