"Pan's Labyrinth" & "The Fountain" Now On DVD

The two finest films of 2006 (in my humble opinion, and you know I know what I'm talkin' about) were released on DVD yesterday, so now you have no excuse for not having your senses dazzled, your emotions stirred, and your intellect stimulated (yes, Virginia, they are not mutually exclusive...) by two of today's most ambitious and versatile young directors.

I reviewed the North American debuts of Guillermo Del Toro's "Pan's Labyrinth" and Darren Aronosfky's "The Fountain" at last fall's Toronto International Film Festival--click on either title to read my thoughts. So get renting already (better yet, buy 'em--they're worth revisiting again and again...)
