What's New on DVD in September: 'First Cow,' 'Blumhouse of Horrors,' 'Roman Holiday' and More
New Indie One of the best films of 2020 — and the last one I'll get to see in a theater for who knows how long — Kelly Reichardt's "First Cow" (Lionsgate) sees the director once again turning to the American frontier to tell a story about America now. John Magaro and Orion Lee play two men in pioneer-era Oregon who go into business selling fried-dough "oilycakes" to homesick miners, but find themselves in the crosshairs of the plutocrat who owns the territory's only source of fresh milk. It's gorgeous, elegaic, witty, and powerful — and you'll crave some funnel cakes.

Once these small roles have been won, François Berléand has an additional piece of advice: be a clown on the set. "I am not called back for my talent, I do not have any. We say to ourselves 'Why not him? At least he will make us laugh'", he jokes. But another factor also explains the long filmography of the Caesarized actor: his inability to say no. “As I don't know how to say yes, I've made a lot of silly films,” he laughs.
