Persistence of vision If 3-D really is the future of cinema (again), what filmgoer wouldn�t want a pair of lightweight, stylish 3-D glasses ($19.95)? Unlike the specs they hand out at the multiplex, Visual World Products� spiffy shades�including the peripheral vision-friendly Vantage model, pictured�will work in multiple viewing platforms. They�re compatible with six passive 3-D television brands and about 94 percent of all 3-D-equipped movie screens. Available at visualworldproducts.com.
The French connection Jean-Luc Godard�s eight-episode, five-hour Histoire(s) du cin�ma ($44.99) is one of the French New Waver�s greatest achievements. It�s both a heady cluster of allusions�to movies, literature, 21st-century politics�and an epic poem. Long unavailable on Region 1 DVD, it arrives stateside December 6 in a two-disc edition from Olive Films. Available at amazon.com.
I stream, you stream Hulu Plus now caters to cinephiles as ardently as it does to boob-tube addicts. Chalk up its increasingly impressive library of streaming movies to a fruitful partnership with Criterion. A gift subscription ($7.99 per month, $95.88 per year) is cheaper than a semester of film school�and probably more useful, too. Available at hulu.com.
Beast in show For those who like their holidays macabre, along comes some spooky yuletide reading from filmmaker John Landis. Monsters in the Movies (DK Adult, $40) offers a photo history of the horror film, with 100 years of creature features spread across 300 glossy, full-color pages, including interviews with legendary directors and F/X maestros. Available at amazon.com.
Shirt-ified copy The kick-ass director T-shirts ($25) from CineFile Video unite the twin passions of moviegoing and devil-horn throwing. Ozu gets lionized in the Ozzy Osbourne font, Herzog�s name sits atop the Danzig skull, and, in our personal favorite, B�la Tarr shares torso space with the Black Flag logo. Available at cinefilevideo.com.
Everything the cinephile in your life needs this holiday season.
