Eric Johnson: Live From Austin TX (New West)

Texas guitarist Eric Johnson’s career was in an odd place in the 1980s; though a superbly talented musician with a Grammy nomination under his belt, he had difficulty finding a proper home for his music. Instead, he focused on his live show, and became a top-notch live act. This concert, recorded in 1988, captures him in his prime, shortly before he scored a surprise commercial hit with his song, “Cliffs Of Dover.”

The Honeymoon Killers (Criterion)

Leonard Kastle’s The Honeymoon Killers is a true-crime/horror/film noir masterpiece based on actual events, but its backstory is so convoluted that the making of the film is equally as engaging. Criterion’s recent reissue of the DVD brings this classic to light, reintroducing it to a new generation of movie buffs.
