New on DVD and Blu-Ray

A lighter week to start the month, with a pretty weak selection of catalog titles (only Kino’s release of the legendary documentary The Atomic Cafe stands out as worth getting) and several prestige TV shows that I have not and probably will not watch. But this week at least gives us Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which isn’t the balm to all the ills of society as some critics have made it seem, but is damn good fun with terrific Christopher McQuarrie direction (playing with horizontal frames just as Brad Bird played with vertical frames) and Tom Cruise going even further than normal into insane commitment. There’s also Andrew Bujalski’s Support the Girls, which I haven’t seen but have heard almost nothing but great things about, so I look forward to checking it out (I assume it’s nothing like the Bujalski I have seen, Computer Chess). I’m sure watching it will be great prep for the live-action Lady and the Tramp remake that Bujalski wrote, which is not something I just made up, I swear.
