Lord Love A Duck

A little-seen black comedy from 1966 about pederasty, incest, obsession and murder. Perfect for the holidays!

Hands on a Hard Body

No, it's not porn. It's even better: A comic documentary about quirky Texans who compete to see who can keep their hands on a truck the longest.

One, Two, Three

Next time someone is going on and on about "His Girl Friday" or "The Lady Eve," just say, "What about 'One, Two, Three?'" When they look at you blankly, shake your head and say, "No list of screwball comedies is complete with Wilder's 'One, Two, Three,'" or something equally pretentious.

Rushmore, Criterion Collection

Forget the movie itself, the commentary by Wes Anderson, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman, and the Max Fischer Players adaptations of “Armageddon” and “The Truman Show”—this disc also includes an episode of the Charlie Rose show. How cool is that?


Just make sure your mom's not in the room when that guy's like, "Her pussy gets SO wet!" and we can pretty much guarantee that you'll enjoy this film.

The Newsroom

Like "The Larry Sanders Show" but darker and more Canadian, "The Newsroom" is one of the funniest things that has ever been on television. Canadian television.

Brazil, Criterion Collection

In his commentary, director Terry Gilliam remarks that he likes to include elements that 90 percent of his audience won't get in order to reward the ten percent that does and to inspire everyone to pay even closer attention. We do that kind of thing at Modern Humorist all the time.

The Prisoner—VHS, DVD

"I am not a number! I am Patrick McGoohan, the reclusive creator and star of this weird-ass '60s television series!"

H.R. Pufnstuf Vol. 1
Also: Lidsville

No, you weren't hallucinating. These shows actually exist. Thank you, Sid and Marty Krofft.
