Movie Talk: DVD Review, Two by Michael Powell

We've discussed Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger many times on Movie Talk so it is a delight to announce that two of Powells' most difficult-to-see films have finally made their way onto DVD. The Michael Powell Double Feature gathers together Powell's last financially successful film in his lifetime, A Matter of Life and Death (1946), called Stairway to Heaven in America, and done with his longtime partner Pressburger, and Powell's last film, Age of Consent (1969) based on an Australian novel by the multifaceted Norman Lindsay (who was also the subject of the mid-'90s movie Sirens) and shot down under. </P>
