    Small Screen | "The Messenger" and "Invictus" Lead Long List of Home Viewing Options

    After racking up two Oscar nominations and making a million at the box office, Oren Moverman's "The Messenger" (criticWIRE rating: B+) is one of Oscilloscope Laboratories' biggest successes in the company's young life.
