The Naked City: Criterion Collection

"There are eight million stories in the Naked City - this has been one of them." Directed by Jules Dassin in 1948, The Naked City was a groundbreaking mixture of documentary and police procedural thriller. Gary Couzens reviews the Region 1 release from Criterion.

The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the Region 1 release of The Naked Gun. The film containing possible the funniest spoof character of all time in Leslie Nielsen's Frank Drebin. For a laugh-a-minute hoot, you'd do far worse than to check this film out!

The Naked Island

Kev reviews director, Kaneto Shindo's 1960 masterpiece; available for the first time on DVD in the west. The Naked Island is available to own on DVD from today as part of Eureka's "Masters of Cinema" series.

The Naked Kiss

Released as one half a double disc set, celebrating two of the most important American movies of the 1960's, Karl Wareham gives The Naked Kiss the once over here.

The Naked Truth

When they find themselves blackmailed by the publisher of a scandal magazine, a number of celebrities react by plotting to kill him, and fall over each other in the attempt. Peter Sellers gets plenty of opportunities to dress up in disguises in this comedy that also benefits from the presence of Terry-Thomas and Peggy Mount.

Namu the Killer Whale

Gary Couzens has reviewed Namu the Killer Whale, an old-fashioned family film from 1966 given a basic back-catalogue release in Region 2 from MGM.

Nanny McPhee

Capturing the spirit of Mary Poppins, albeit in the magical nanny's less forgiving moments, Emma Thompson's Nanny McPhee comes into the lives of Colin Firth's Mr Brown and his seven very naughty children...


Anthony Nield has reviewed Metrodome's Region 2 release of the 2002 miniseries Napoleon. A lengthy affair with an all-star cast including Gerard Depardieu and John Malkovich, this is also an excessively overlong and ultimately empty experience.

Napoleon Dynamite

Sometimes you get a strange feeling after watching a film, one that makes you wonder whether you actually liked what you saw or not. Napoleon Dynamite is one such film that left me weighing up the odds, especially after anticipating its release date.

Napoleon Dynamite

Anthony Nield takes a look at the Region 2 release of Napoleon Dynamite, an amusing but ultimately empty experience, here given a fine presentation but also shackled with disappointing extra features content.
