  • Movie

Akira Kurosawa’s RAN — a retelling of King Lear that’s better than Shakespeare — is available in wide-screen on DVD … Ex-Avenger Patrick Macnee adds dash to THE DICK FRANCIS MYSTERIES, a three-adaptation dose of the novelist’s horsey brand of detective fiction … Released from Bondage, Timothy Dalton stars in THE INFORMANT, an IRA thriller as bleak as its Pogues-heavy soundtrack … America’s favorite Beckettian headbangers are back with BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD: TROUBLED YOUTH, a new eight-clip collection.
