DVDs to watch for

I've developed a new appreciation of Roman Polanski's work, due in large part to his astonishing photography. Recently saw "Knife in the Water" and every frame deserves to be hung on a wall in a museum.

Equally excellent is his version of "MacBeth".

Another fascinating DVD is the one of the original Frost/Nixon debates - Nixon calmly obfuscates with the classic "Why don't you read the next line of the transcripts?" As if this would put everything in context and mark him "not guilty". Frost adeptly corners him and the tension is wonderful to watch.

On the whimsical and divine, Christiane Cegavske's work is so astonishing and heartbreaking, you will get lost in her world quickly.
