"The House I Live In"
What's It About? Eugene Jarecki's ("Freakonomics") "The House I Live In" gives an in-depth look at America's war on drugs. The documentary brings our attention to the human rights issues created by the country's drug policy and the overcrowded prison system.
Why We're IN: Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Jarecki's solid work of journalism brings up a controversial and dire issue that calls for attention. While the doc's subject may only affect a segment of the population, it reminds us that the war on drugs is everybody's problem.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week
"The Producers"
What's It About? One of the funniest comedies ever, "The Producers" stars Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel as an accountant and playwright who do everything they can to produce a Broadway flop. The 1968 dark comedy was Mel Brooks' first feature film and won him an Academy Award.
Why We're IN: Wilder and Mostel's punch lines and ad-lib are still hilarious to this day in this classic comedy that feels as fresh as when it first debuted. "The Producers" also shows Brooks at the height of his career.

"6 Souls"
What's It About? This supernatural thriller stars Julianne Moore (for a reason we can't seem to understand) as a psychiatrist struggling with the recent death of her husband. She discovers that her newest patient (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) has taken on the multiple personalities of murder victims and that she is in danger. An embarrassment of a film, "6 Souls" is hardly watchable even with it's talented lead actors.

"Venus and Serena"
What's It About?
This biopic gives an intimate look at the two sisters who dominated women's tennis for over a decade during one of the most intense years of their lives. While the doc doesn't reveal much fans don't already know, it serves to show the deep bond between two sisters who stopped at nothing to win.

What's It About?
This 1977 collection of comedy skits marked the debut of the comedic writing trio David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker who went on to make "Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun" films.

"The Trouble With Harry"
What's It About? This 1950 black comedy, starring Edmund Gwenn, John Forsythe, and Shirley MacLacine in her film debut, was a delightful surprise from Alfred Hitchcock. The film follows a group of townsfolk who stumble upon a dead man whom they all seem to believe they killed themselves, yet unsure what to do with his body. "The Trouble With Harry" proved that the master of suspense could also excel at humor.
