Feature

New on DVD

<em>Big Fan; Che: Criterion Collection; Streamers</em>

Big Fan(Vivendi, $26.99)The release of Big Fan provides a fitting end to the football season, said The Boston Globe. In this biting comedy about a 35-year-old garage attendant whose “world is ruled by the New York Giants,” director Robert Siegel tackles the devotion of a true fan with a “touch of pathos and whole lot of King of Comedy absurdity.”

Che: Criterion Collection(Criterion, $49.95)The “bewildering life and death of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara find their match” in Steven Soderbergh’s film epic, said the London Daily Telegraph. As Che, Benicio Del Toro makes the revolutionary’s “charisma believable,” and, despite its four-hour running time, the film proves a “strangely involving” history lesson.

Streamers(Shout Factory!, $19.99)Rarely seen and still controversial among critics, Robert Altman’s Streamers has gotten a second chance on DVD, said The Washington Post. Adapted from David Rabe’s provocative play about five men waiting to ship off to Vietnam, the 1983 political drama is an intense study of sexuality and prejudice.
