"Chaos Reigns" in "Antichrist," "Scott Pilgrim" Rules, and More New DVDs

8 November 2010 8:53 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

A look at what's new on DVD today:

"Antichrist" (2009)

Directed by Lars von Trier

Released by Criterion Collection

From its incendiary debut at Cannes to becoming a cult hit defined by the meme "Chaos Reigns," Lars von Trier's psychosexual horror film about a married couple (Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg) that repairs to a cabin in the woods to grieve over the death of their young son is receiving the Criterion Collection treatment. Video interviews with von Trier, Gainsbourg, and Dafoe, making-of vignettes and a documentary about the Cannes premiere accompany the feature. (Aaron Hillis' interview with von Trier is here.)

22 April 2010 2:46 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Wanderer is Avishai Sivan's debut feature film. A film school graduate in 2001, his only film to date was a barely noticed documentary film. This tells the story of Isaac, a young yeshiva student, an only child to born-again orthodox parents. Trapped in a dysfunctional family and a failing body, Isaac finds refuge in wandering. Tormented by his newfound infertility, Isaac looks for answers in his father’s dubious past. Wandering through the backstreets of the city, he seeks deliverance. - Israeli Film Scene: Local After Phobidilia sadly evaporated from local theaters, there isn't much to look as Keren Yedaya's Jaffa (which we mentioned in last month's report) has been push from its slated April release date to a mid-May launch - ironically warm responses from audiences in premiere screenings and an Oscar nomination has pushed the distributors to push the release date back.

World Film Report Israeli: Sivan is 'The Wanderer' in Cannes, Kosahvili Becomes An 'Infiltration'

Israeli Film Scene: Local After Phobidilia sadly evaporated from local theaters, there isn't much to look as Keren Yedaya's Jaffa (which we mentioned in last month's report) has been push from its slated April release date to a mid-May launch - ironically warm responses from audiences in premiere screenings and an Oscar nomination has pushed the distributors to push the release date back. For the most part, the Israeli movie industry has always relied on scripts written directly for the screen, but this year, it seems that the tables have turned, and most of the Israeli movies of 2010 are adaptations of novels. In last month's report, you could read about the new projects of Eran Ricklis, Nir Bergman and Ari Folman, all of them adaptations from previously released books. There was a void of film adaptation material in the past as they the films didn't live up to the expectations, »

6 April 2010 2:53 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

There are a number of new projects by the more established filmmakers that are currently in the post-production phases, the most anticipated is perhaps The Band's Visit's Eran Kolirin, who is in the editing stages of The Exchange. -   Israeli Film Scene: Local The Israeli film scene appears to be in a hibernation mode right now. "Appears to be" – but isn't necessarily. There is only one Israeli film in local theaters now – it is Phobidilia by the Paz brothers. Based on a book by Izhar Harlev, "Phobidilia" tells the story of a young man, once a high-tech genius, now an agoraphobic. After spending the last couple of years of his life inside his apartment, and never leaving it, he is faced with the biggest challenge ever: A young and beautiful girl enters his life, and his landlord wishes to evacuate him. Both destabilize his life, and tranquility is shattered. »
