Alien in a Tux DVD, or not DVD, that is the Blu-Ray. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind of Kevin Hart, the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Or to take arms against a sea of Dwayne Johnson's, and, by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep, perchance to McCarthy, that's Melissa McCarthy. No more-and by a sleep to say we end, as an end would imply an Ingrid Bergman, a Jeff Goldblum, and a Sigourney Weaver. The heartache and the thousand natural shocks, that flesh is heir to-'tis a consummation, devoutly to be wished. Here are thy selections.

Ingrid Bergman in Her Own Words

Through never-before-seen private footage, notes, letters, diaries, and frank interviews with her children, this documentary presents a personal portrait and captivating look behind the scenes of the remarkable life of a young Swedish girl who became one of the most beloved and celebrated actresses of American cinema.

Screened to rave reviews at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, during what was the centenary of Ingrid's birth, the film takes an unprecedented look at an iconic starlet who always knew she was destined for fame. From her early passion for film and theatre to her Hollywood ascent and notorious, scandalous romances, Bergman retained a fervent love for her family and adeptness for scrupulously recording her own life.

Lovingly assembled by filmmaker and critic, Stig Björkman, who has previously written extensively on the likes of fellow cinematic legends, Ingmar Bergman and Woody Allen, and with Bergman’s writings voiced by Oscar-winning actress, Alicia Vikander, Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words is a remarkably insightful and intimate depiction of a woman whose strength and accomplishments continue to inspire today.

Release Date: the 16th of August, 2016 / Running Time: 114 minutes / Genre: Documentary / Special Features: Yes / Distributed by Criterion.
