My top 10 favorite home-video releases of 2016 (and 21 runners-up):
10. Cool Apocalypse (Smith, 2015, Emphasis Entertainment DVD)
I would be lying if I didn’t include my own first feature on this list. I love the package that Al Strutz of Emphasis Entertainment Group put together for the DVD-only release of Cool Apocalypse, which includes Pierre Kattar’s minute-long behind-the-scenes documentary and my own “director’s commentary” track in which I expound at greater length than I have anywhere else before on my influences, methods and intentions in making this little film.
