The most significant DVD release of 2010 is America Lost and Found, packaging seven films produced between 1968 and 1972, including Easy Rider and The Last Picture Show. These films represent the moment when the stewards of the counterculture briefly got their hands on the wheel -- bolstered by studios that saw that movies could be smart and lucrative at the same time. The set's synopsis speaks as much for the cultural moment we find ourselves in today as it does for the period in which these films were released, of which it says, "What had once worked seemed broken."
