OUR PICK Thankfully, Criterion has restored two of Jacques Tati’s Chaplinesque comedies about the bumbling sweetheart Monsieur Hulot—M. Hulot’s Holiday and Mon Oncle. In fact, if you’ve seen only shoddy VHS tapes of these films, you’ve missed half the joy in the crisp visual puns and audio trickery. Holiday (1953) is the bona fide classic, but Mon Oncle, a 1958 satirical tale about how a sweet uncle—or a few mischievous dogs—can disrupt a modernist plastic-and-glass paradise, is the more timely delight. $29.95 each; NR. Each DVD features new subtitles and introductions by Terry Jones. Mon Oncle adds Tati’s 1947 short film L’École des Facteurs; Holiday tosses in Tati’s English soundtrack and René Clément’s 1936 short film Soigne ton Gauche, starring Tati.
