New on DVD and Blu-Ray

This is a good week for shining light on underseen catalog titles. In particular, there’s Kino rescuing and restoring one of Paul Verhoeven’s hard-to-find early Dutch films, Spetters, which features the exact amount of gross sex you would expect from the man. There’s also new restorations of Derek Jarman’s Edward II, Philippe de Broca’s King of Hearts, Lino Brocka’s Manila in the Claws of Light, and Vincente Minnelli’s Designing Woman. And there’s also some fine trash cinema to go around, including the infamous Madonna vehicle Body of Evidence, the wonderfully absurd Ninja III: The Domination (somehow given a 4K remaster), and Ivan Reitman’s Junior (alas, that only has an old transfer, as great as a 4K presentation of Arnold Schwarzenegger in drag would be). New titles seem pretty thin by comparison, although they do have Loveless, the new film from Russia’s funniest, lightest filmmaker, Andrey Zvyagintsev, and Love, Simon, which is apparently quite a charming little movie. And there’s also Sherlock Gnomes, in case you hate yourself.
