New on DVD and Blu-Ray

The big-ticket item this week is the (alleged) definitive version of Apocalypse Now, presented along with the other two versions in brand-spanking-new 4K restorations. But best of all, there’s a Q&A with Francis Ford Coppola and Steven Soderbergh added to the bonus features, which should tide you over until Soderbergh returns to the land of commentaries with this November’s release of The Daytrippers. Still, Apocalypse Now is not a film that’s hurt for lack of extensive special editions, which cannot be said of Abbas Kiarostami’s The Koker Trilogy and Derek Jarman’s swan song Blue. So the loving attention given to both by, respectively, Criterion and Zeitgeist this week is maybe even more commendable than Lionsgate’s fine work with American Zoetrope. Also, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is out this week, and I don’t want to talk about it.
