Product Description

Night & Fog is Alain Resnais' seminal work of world cinema, employing a broad range of sound and images to document the Holocaust. A Girl's Own Story revisits an idyllic era when the Beatles reigned supreme yet darker forces were at work. An early short f


Short 3: Authority, the Warner Bros.-revised reissue of PolyGram's digital magazine, is a tenuously linked but rich collection of classic and contemporary short films. Apart from Performance McKean, a slight little piece with Michael McKean doing a subdued Denis Leary-esque riff, nothing really anchors the theme of "authority," but Alain Resnais's powerful and moving 1955 documentary Night and Fog gives the collection both class and heft. It was the first film to confront the issues of the Holocaust, and the horrifying black-and-white archival footage has lost none of its terrifying power. Historian David Shepard provides illuminating background to the production and insight to Resnais's approach in a commentary track that runs for half of the program's 30 minutes. Jane Campion's A Girl's Own Story, an offbeat and unusually haunting remembrance of growing up in the '60s, is about a schoolgirl who lives for the Beatles and escapes into fantasy as her parents' marriage breaks up before her eyes. Other highlights include the frenetic animated piece Dada, a satire of the frustrations of a new father whose son doesn't meet social expectations, Sasha Wolf's Joe, the quietly observed story of a man holding on to his precarious sense of identity in a mental hospital, and the experimental comic piece The Whites, which uses stop-motion techniques to create a jittery parody of the everyday social rituals of a middle-class family. Each of these includes optional commentary by the filmmakers. The disc is rounded out by Flying Over Mother, a Russian-language but New Zealand-made piece about a cosmonaut reminiscing about his childhood, and the Brazilian Os Camaradas, a Kafka-esque satire about food, identity, and bureaucracy. --Sean Axmaker

I was thrown by the serious cover and title, but I found this collection of short films to be actually quite entertaining and amazingly diverse. I really liked Jane Campion's short, which I had never seen before. I know she's done some other great short films, and I'd like to see those on DVD someday. The animated piece on this collection was a trip - it was like a Mr. Magoo cartoon gone terribly wrong. And the astronaut film is really odd - I thought it was Russian but apparently it was made by Australians. Go figure! I know Kyra Sedgwick and Stanley Tucci are supposed to be somewhere on this DVD, but I couldn't find them. Maybe it's an easter egg that I just haven't discovered yet.

This DVD is a must-see, even if one only sees the chilling documentary 'Night and Fog', on the Nazi concentration camps. It may be the most disgusting, but most important thirty minutes of your life.
