A. Best DVDs of 2007 Lists
Here's a link to many indie critics' annual 'DVDs of the Year' lists at DVDBeaver.com
CVM's new Jordan Belson: 5 Essential Films DVD is on a number of the top ten lists, along with a few other dvds of interest to frameworkers.
B. Sight and Sound DVD Review for Belson and Fischinger
A review of CVM's Jordan Belson and Oskar Fischinger DVDs appears in the January 2008 issue of Sight and Sound Magazine (published by British Film Institute), reviewed by Tom Charity. One small correction, both dvds are Region-free/Region 0.
[the Belson movies are]
"...gently evolving kaleidoscopes that suggest what it might be like to float through Saturn's rings or see the earth before the Big Bang.
Belson's celestial lightshows dissolve the boundaries between photography, animation, chemistry, meteorology and astronomy; it's a kind of atomised cinema that dilates the mind's eye."
The DVDs are available on CVM's online store at
or on Amazon worldwide.
Many thanks to Tom Charity, Doug Cummings, Jonathan Rosenbaum, and all of the critics and reviewers who have so positively supported our DVD releases.
