Review Overlooked and underrated, Goodbye Lover is a tawdry, tasty film noir with a soft spot for its scheming antiheroine. With her platinum Lulu bob, a killer wardrobe, and a Sound of Music fetish that inspires her to "climb every mountain" of bad-girl ambition, Patricia Arquette is perfectly cast as Sandra, the sweet but lethal wife of Jake (Dermot Mulroney), who works in a top-drawer ad agency with his brother Ben (Don Johnson). Weary stud Ben falls prey to simultaneous affairs with Sandra and his devoted secretary (Mary-Louise Parker), and the cynical Detective Pompano (Ellen DeGeneres) unravels the murder-for-insurance plot while her clueless Mormon partner (Ray McKinnon) tries to keep pace. Combining mordant humor and rampant depravity, this deliciously dark comedy starts fast and never lets up, liberating director Roland Joffé (The Killing Fields) from the sobriety of his previous work. The entire cast is great, but it's DeGeneres who makes this a recommended sleeper. --Jeff Shannon
Major Crimes: The Complete Sixth Season

Review A Code Red Release A woman like Kit comes around once in a lifetime! Ex-con Harry Talbot (Michael Madsen, Reservoir Dogs, The Hateful Eight) can't believe his luck. In a power game, he took two losers for five thousand dollars, a classic convertible Lincoln Continental and met a hot young thing, Kit Califano (Patricia Arquette, True Romance, Lost Highway). As it turns out, Harry ends up the loser, as in the trunk rests the rotting corpse of a man known as Gordo. To make matters worse, the men who put Gordo there want him back and Kit is out to kill a gangster kingpin. What was supposed to be the beginning of a new life for Harry has now become a high-speed struggle for survival - as he's pursued by crazed drug dealers, vicious Mafia hit men and maniacal family members. Co-starring Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade, A Simple Plan) and Seymour Cassel (Rushmore, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie).

Special Features:
-On Camera Interview with Writer Francis Delia
-Revesible Art
-Original Theatrical Trailer
