The Blu-ray is gorgeous. DAS BOOT Blu-Ray Lest you think that 13 ASSASSINS is the best film of this week’s column, think again. How great is DAS BOOT? You will root for Nazis. DAS BOOT is brilliant acting, scripting, scoring, cinematography, editing and the fucking sound design. HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN Blu-Ray This is a triumph for all of you geeks out there that dream of being a filmmaker. The resulting film is an acetylene torch on meth & acid. Ya know.
