What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue. This week I can also tell you what not to rent: Premonition starring Sandra Bullock. You will most likely regret it.

Despite the controversy this movie stirred up during production, the film didn't do well at the box office, nor did it wow the critics. Still, it's an interesting movie to see because of the time period it deals with and the subject matter: Edie Sedgwick. Sienna Miller channels Sedgwick, the glamorous starlet of the 1960s who became pop artist Andy Warhol's (played by Guy Pearce) muse. In the movie Sedgwick also flirts with a musician character (played by Hayden Christiansen) who is clearly based on Bob Dylan. The movie chronicles Sedgwick's rise to fame and subsequent fall into obscurity. The costumes in this film are fantastic, as is Miller's makeup, both of which you can get for yourself, thanks to my friend Fab!
