2 X 50 Years of French Cinema (no cert). True to form, Jean-Luc Godard's contribution to the BFI's "Century of Cinema" series is the most provocative and beguiling of the lot, slyly challenging the prevailing celebratory tone. Also released: Edgar Reitz's Night of the Film Makers and Stig Bjorkman's I Am Curious, Film, surveys of German and Scandinavian cinema.
The Blackout (18). Abel Ferrara's latest is one of his murkier. Matthew Modine displays surprising range as a debauched film star who, once he cleans up (and shacks up with Claudia Schiffer) is haunted by visions of a violent crime. Ferrara's usual commitment to sleaze is in evidence, but for all its attempts at emotional nakedness, the film feels a little stale and trite.
