New on DVD and Blu-Ray

This week offers practically an embarrassment of riches all around, starting with two sadly Oscar-snubbed 2018 films, Can You Ever Forgive Me? and If Beale Street Could Talk. Beale Street got royally hosed (at least partially because its studio decided to go all-in on Adam McKay’s diminishing returns), given how it improves on the already-great Moonlight in almost every way possible, but Can You Ever Forgive Me?, despite existing in a much more minor key than Beale Street‘s romantic epic, is just as worthy of attention, if only for Melissa McCarthy’s turn as someone who falls just slightly on the wrong side of “charming asshole”.

Elsewhere in new releases, there’s the apparently charming Aquaman, the apparently profound Columbus, and the apparently mildly tolerable Stan and Ollie. Catalog titles offer two Michael Keaton vehicles just in time for Dumbo and Kino releasing more Bob Hope/Bing Crosby movies than you’d probably ever care to watch, the last of their 4K-restored versions of the Dollars trilogy, and one of Douglas Sirk’s more overlooked Hollywood films, The Tarnished Angels. But the biggie this week is Satoshi Kon’s Perfect Blue, as disturbing and visually inventive as maybe any film ever made, and until now only available on an out-of-print DVD that looks like ass. See it in good quality and realize what Darren Aronofsky owes the entirety of his career to.
