New on DVD and Blu-Ray

Criterion and Barnes & Noble have begun their twice-yearly assault on your bank accounts, and accordingly Criterion this week provides you with two worthy ways to blow your money. The big one is their Bruce Lee box set, collecting the best works (and also Game of Death) from Lee’s short-lived career. I would try to connect Bruce Lee to this week’s other Criterion, Preston Sturges’ The Lady Eve, but I’m at a loss as to what an attempt to do that would even look like. Besides those two, we also have Film Movement’s Blu-Ray of L’Innocente, Luchino Visconti’s final film, and Kino’s release of Mädchen in Uniform, a key early text in queer cinema.
