New on DVD and Blu-Ray

Another big week, though the only new title worth writing home about is Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man, which, while not perfect, is worthwhile as both a showcase for another great Elisabeth Moss performance as a woman on the edge (the more polished look is the only sign that she isn’t starring in an Alex Ross Perry movie) and an instructional tape on how cinematic grammar can be weaponized to scare the shit out of you. Other than that, the week is highlighted by three major offerings from Criterion; John Cassavetes’ Husbands, Paul Dano’s directorial debut Wildlife, and a collection of early shorts and documentaries from Martin Scorsese. Not to be outdone, Shout Factory offers three similarly enticing titles (and also Escape From L.A.); a 4K release of The Deer Hunter, a special edition of Sidney Lumet’s swan song Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, and Keith Gordon’s underseen war film A Midnight Clear. Blue Underground offers the chance for extreme gore in extremely high resolution with 4K reissues of Zombie and Maniac, while Arrow gives us a box set of eight films from the director of Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Even Paramount is putting out several titles this week (including Louis Malle’s Atlantic City), though because they’re still Paramount, they’re fucking that up by making them all BD-Rs. Or, if none of that appeals to you, there’s Kino scraping the bottom of the Douglas Sirk barrel with his rare foray into the western, Taza, Son of Cochise, featuring an unfortunately bronzed Rock Hudson as Taza.
