Drive-in Saturday

In this weekly feature, I review in one sentence or less videos/DVDs of movies that you either have seen already or wouldn't bother to see.

"Bad Day at Black Rock" (1955), directed by John Sturges: Solid, morality flick starring the always trusty Spencer Tracy.

"Saraband" (2005), directed by Ingmar Bergman: Bergman's been watching too many Ingmar Berman-inspired Woody Allen films, but Liv Ullman is excellent.

"Born into Brothels" (2004), directed by Zana Briski and Ross Kaufmann: Searing yet hopeful documentary about a photography class for kids of prostitutes in Calcutta.
