There's a really long (almost an hour) documentary on Jane Campion directing PORTRAIT OF A LADY. The filmmakers got really great access -- it's fascinating to see the soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Cruise at work (she does seem like a handful). But Nicole Kidman is nothing compared to Shelley Winters, who is clearly crazy. This is a great insiders look.
There's also a beautiful short film from Belgium called GABRIEL which is about a little boy raised by nuns. It's stunningly shot and stays with you for quite some time. As does the other fictional film, which is about a shoemaker in India. That film (which is on the DVD cover) seems really, really long -- but that's clearly the filmmaker's intent. It's worth sticking it out -- because it's very poetic and really special.
There's also some nice animation and a portrait of a rock and roll band.
Quite a lot to digest!

Do not miss this one out; it is better then hundreds of long features! Women are ruling the magic of movies and poetry; Campion and De Betak's films are sublime!
