Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind on DVD


Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Jim Carrey and his girlfriend lose their minds—or at least big chunks of them—in this cerebral sci-fi romance by the gloriously gimmicky director Michel Gondry and screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. R; $22.98.

Ramones Raw
This authorized documentary about the goofy, somehow seminal band includes unearthed concert footage, a show filmed for Italian TV, and commentary from Johnny Ramone—his last contribution before his death. NR; $19.99.

The Alamo
Dennis Quaid and Billy Bob Thornton headline a big-budget disappointment. PG-13; $29.99.

Broken Lizard’s Club Dread
A surprisingly funny tropical slasher comedy, starring Bill Paxton. NR; $19.98.

Jack Black and Ben Stiller, in the worst movie starring either. PG-13; $19.95.

Super Size Me
Morgan Spurlock gorges on McDonald’s food that most people eat in moderation. His film “ostensibly targets the iniquities of the fast-food industry,” wrote New York’s Peter Rainer, “but plays more like a goofball romp.” PG-13; $26.99.

Rivers And Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time
Thanks to time-lapse photography, this documentary probably offers a better view of Goldsworthy’s eccentric earth sculptures than a firsthand visit would. NR; $26.95.

Our Pick
Even among the high-profile DVD debuts this month—from Jabba the Hutt to John Cassavetes—no film is more exciting or perplexing than 1963’s Nothing But a Man. An American classic if there ever was one, the film stars Abbey Lincoln as a preacher’s daughter who falls for a railroad worker (Ivan Dixon) in the segregationist South. It’s a subtle landmark—perhaps the first film about a black couple that didn’t shoehorn its characters to fit their circumstances. And it wasn’t filmed by two activist-filmmakers, either—Michael Roemer and Robert Young were just two recent immigrants who, Roemer likes to say, “didn’t know what we were getting into and didn’t know any better.” NR; $29.95. Extras: Interviews with Dixon, Lincoln, Roemer, and Young; Portrait of Abbey, a short biopic about Lincoln.
