Warren Beatty's 1981 film Reds is finally coming to DVD on October 17th.  Nominated for 12 Oscars and awarded 3, including Best Director for Beatty who wrote, acted and directed the film, Beatty plays radical journalist John Reed.  Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson and Maureen Stapleton all star.  Reds was the last Hollywood film to be show with an intermission.

Says, A.O. Scott of the New York Times, “Reds” remains a superior history lesson, thanks to Mr. Beatty’s thorough command of the material and to his inclusion of real-life “witnesses” to the life and times of Reed. Their faces and voices give this romance some documentary ballast, and make it, now that they are gone, a moving archive of faded memories.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
