PROHIBITION: Great Film for Whisky Ethusiasts

With the second season premiere of Boardwalk Empire upon us, now's as good a time as any to bone up on your prohibition era history. Directed by tireless documentarian Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, Prohibition ($40) is a six-hour, three part documentary looking at the dark days between the passing of the 18th amendment and its glorious repeal in 1933, complete with two hours of bonus content and plenty of "pan slowly over an old photo" shots — after all, there's a reason it's called the "Ken Burns Effect."
Be sure to check out Uncrate for other great recommendations.
