What's Eating Gilbert Grape? - June 20

Gilbert Grape is probably one of my favorite Johnny Depp movies. It's very low key, it's subtle and he nails Mary Steenburgen with wreckless aggression. Or maybe it's the other way around. I'm also a big fan of the little known film What's Eating Gilbert's Hairy Bean Bag with Brittney Skye, Jenna Jameson, and some dude.

Munich (SE) - May 9

Specs for the double disc collector's edition were finally released recently. I dig the collector's edition artwork better than the single disc edition, but if you're debating which one to pick up, The Clinic recommends the collector's edition. For one, the cover is better and two, because of the extras you're getting below. The only extra on the single disc edition is an introduction by Mr. Spielbergo.


  • Munich: The Mission, The Team - Find out how this project came about and the challenges that were faced by the filmmakers to draw an accurate portrayal of the controversial mission. The actors share their experience getting involved portraying the five men who led the mission.
  • Munich: Memories of the Event - Explore and discover the impact of the real events in Munich through documentary footage, film clips, behind-the-scenes moments and interviews with cast and crew, including Steven Spielberg.
  • Munich: Portrait of an Era - Look at the re-creation of the '70s with production designer Rick Carter and costume designer Joanna Johnston.
  • Munich: The "On Set" Experience - A moving and intricate exploration into the art and politics involved with the making of Munich.
  • Munich: Editing, Sound and Music - A discussion with Steven Spielberg and his collaborators, composer John Williams and editor Michael Kahn, on the final touches that were added to Munich.
  • Munich: The International Cast - A captivating look at the remarkable group of actors that appear in Munich. With over 150 speaking parts, Spielberg and his team discuss the casting of actors from all over the world.
