New on DVD and Blu-Ray

This week sees the release of two movies with such strong visual pastiches that them also being incredibly emotionally resonant comes as a bonus; Todd Haynes’ Far From Heaven and a bunch of people’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I’d try to come up with further comparisons, but all I can think of is both of them being fantastic and very much worth buying. Also very much worth buying are Criterion’s two offerings this week, both of which are exactly the kind of underseen or poorly-presented gems that Criterion should ideally be releasing regularly (but hey, Michael Moore movies keep the lights on); Barbara Loden’s only directorial effort Wanda and Edgar G. Ulmer’s public-domain noir Detour.
