As VHS fades away (mmm! smells like 8-track), cool movies are making it to DVD. I'm still waiting for Cold Comfort Farm, but Fuori dal Mondo - Not of this world - will be out on February 4. I heard of it because the fabulous Ludovico Einaudi did the soundtrack but the <A href="http://us.imdb.com/Title?0172477"IMDB description</a> of the trio of the maternal novice, the mother who abandons her baby and the dry cleaner father sounded intriguing; I want to see more Piccioni too, like <a href="http://amazon.imdb.com/Title?0101574">Chiedi la Luna</a> about chasing a missing brother across the country.
And yesterday one of my surprise favourites was on Sky Movies, so we checked for the DVD and it's coming soon. <a href="http://amazon.imdb.com/Title?0102603">Oscar</a> is a hilarious movie with perfect comic timing; it's a three room, three bag farce version of the Marriage of Figaro set in 1920s gangster Chicago, with a hugely complicated plot; and yes, Sylvester Stallone is funny in it! As is Tim Curry as the elocution teacher; the scene when Stallone opens the bag expecting money, or jewels (he knows of two bags) and dicovers it's the third bag, full of underwear, Curry rubs a pair of kickers to humour Stallone and proclaims, 'mmm; lovely money!"
