Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “the Alfred Hitchcock two pack of North by Northwest and Strangers on a Train is worth the sticker price for either movie, let alone both. Very easy to recommend.” Alex says, “Jin-Roh is my pick of the week this time. It’s one of the works that came out after Oshii sold his sense of humor to the devil for critical acclaim, but that doesn’t reduce it’s quality as a work of cinema.”
