New Spy DVDs Out Today

There are two new spy DVD releases of note due on Tuesday, May 22, 2007. First, there's Warner Bros.' release of Steven Soderbergh's The Good German, one of the best movies of last year that no one saw. It explores the labyrinthine world of postwar Berlin, crawling with American and Russian agents already playing Cold War games in the immediate wake of the hot one. Second, Magnolia Films puts out Hal Hartley's Fay Grim, a spy movie sequel to the director's well-regarded 1998 film Henry Fool, which wasn't a spy movie. Make sense? Who cares! If you're anything like me, the prospect of seeing Parker Posey tangled up in a web of espionage will be enough to lure you to this one.
