Allure (2017) starring Evan Rachel Wood DVD (Eureka!)

This controversial look at the complex issues surrounding an abusive/controlling relationship between a grown woman and an adolescent girl will upset many viewers. However, it is well-acted, frank and non-exploitative - if somewhat rough around the edges.

The Grifters (1990) dir: Stephen Frears Blu Ray & DVD (101 Films)

This neo-noir, adapted from Jim Thompson's novel, is a stylishly tragic portrayal of the human beings behind its sundry scams and hardboiled dialogue. It's an overlooked gem, featuring outstanding performances by John Cusack, Anjelica Huston and Annette Bening.
