Small Town Murder Songs

This Week in DVD

I just returned from vacation this afternoon, and yes, I did have a great time. Thanks for asking. I spent most of my days (and some of my nights) outside but still found time to check out this week’s DVD releases to help you determine which ones are worth owning, watching, and avoiding. This weeks titles include Limitless, Peep World, Take Me Home Tonight, Small Town Murder Songs, two TV series from the UK, and more! As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. Torchwood: The Complete Original UK Series A ragtag group of Brits and their American leader collect and use alien technology to stem the tide of intergalactic ne’re-do-wells. This UK series is a spirited blend of X-Files and Primeval in more ways than one, and as a sucker for both of those series I quickly became a fan of this one. It’s kind of a spinoff from Dr. Who, but that knowledge isn’t necessary to enjoy the action, stories, and fun exuding from many of these episodes. I only discovered the connection after watching the show and then reading up on the Captain Jack character via Wikipedia… something I don’t recommend until you finish the series for fear of spoilers.

Small Town Murder Songs – directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly Festival screening times – 3/6 @ 430pm, 3/11 @ 245pm Walter (Peter Stormare) is the police chief of a small Ontario town where the most violent happenings are usually bar fights between drunken locals. He himself was a violent man once upon a time, but the love of a good woman (Martha Plimpton) and a newfound faith in God have changed him for the better. Or have they? The nude body of a young woman is found on the outskirts of town, and Walter soon identifies a prime suspect for her rape and murder. Trouble is the man is a local who not only shares a violent past with Walter but is currently living with Walter’s ex, Rita (Jill Hennessy). As the investigation continues his findings and motivations come under scrutiny by an outside detective, and the foundations of his recently built, peaceful exterior begin to crack. Can this newly baptized man of God resist the temptations of the past and the pull towards violence and survive his path to redemption?
