What to Netflix: New (Oscar) DVD Tuesday

Just in time for the Oscars this Sunday, several nominated films have come out on DVD! You can Netflix them now and have a totally Oscar-themed weekend. That way, you can make savvy, well-informed decisions when filling out your own Oscar ballot. And the new DVDs are...

Babel
Earning, among others, a Best Picture nomination, Babel has gotten a lot of buzz for its universal themes and good-looking cast. Set in three continents and featuring five languages, the film follows four different stories revolving around the aftermath of a shooting in the Moroccan desert. The strong performances, compelling story, and sharp cinematography make it an obvious Best Picture nominee. For a more in-depth look at Babel, check out my review.

Two more 2007 Oscar nominees, so

The Prestige
Visually arresting, The Prestige is nominated for both Art Direction and Cinematography. This dark psychological thriller follows two rival magicians at the beginning of the 20th century. As they try to outdo each other, their acts become more and more dangerous until they turn deadly. The engaging cast includes Michael Caine, David Bowie, Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, and Scarlett Johansson.

Marie Antoinette
This film came out last Tuesday, but it goes well with these other new releases, having earned an Oscar nomination for Costume Design and all. Certainly the bright, beautiful period clothes featured in Sofia Coppola's stylized depiction of the young Marie Antoinette are impressive enough to warrant a viewing of the film. Kirsten Dunst stars as Marie, the naive Austrian princess who became the Queen of France at age 19. The film follows her betrothal to Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman) at age 15, through her reign as Queen and the eventual fall of Versailles.
