In the weekly installment of must see releases of the week, the week of October 17 offers some interesting under-the-radar choices. The following are Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and limited theatrical releases you should check out.

SHOT CALLER:

This film is a drama-thriller, but it’s scary how intense it is. Shot Caller depicts the intimidating world of prison life. Game of Thrones Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars in the leading role (he’s terrific) as a prisoner who is operating outside the prison, but under prison rules. It’s about two very different worlds, the prison life, and outside and how little gangs rule from both sides. The inside look that of prison life is as authentically depicted as a non-documentary movie possibly can. The cast is of supporting talent is very strong with the likes of Lake Bell, Jon Bernthal and Emory Cohen. Shot Caller is raw, violent and engrossing. Life throws us curveballs and this story you see the extreme measures someone will go to protect people closest to them.

Special Features:

  • “Inside Job” Featurette
  • Filmmaker Commentary

Shot Caller is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
