The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford didn't exactly set the box-office on fire when it landed in theaters. Something tells me, though, that this superb, meditative neo-Western will enjoy a long life on DVD. Across the Universe is the world's longest music video and a treat for any Beatles fan (and only for Beatles' fans!). Elizabeth - The Golden Age was unexpectedly ripped by critics. Cate still managed to wangle an Oscar nod, however, so it's probably worth a look. In retrospect, I think I'd rather have seen Snow Buddies than the ponderous Feast of Love. Don't make the same mistake. Great World of Sound is a tiny, unexpected gem.
