New on DVD and Blu-Ray

An update to last week’s article: credit where it’s due, Kino is actually fixing its Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia release, offering free replacement discs with the advertised 4K transfer. Even better, they seem to have gotten their Blu-Ray of Runaway Train right the first time; they get a pat on the head this week. Not that Criterion has ever been a flawless company either (we’ll see more of that next week, with the release of the most contentious box set in recent memory), but this week they really bring their A-game with the long-awaited U.S. home video debut of Jacques Rivette’s Céline and Julie Go Boating, complete with Claire Denis’s two-part TV documentary on Rivette. And perhaps to go along with that portrait of anarchic femininity (almost certainly not, but perhaps), Universal gives us Promising Young Woman, a swirling vortex of discourse that may very well swallow us all during this delayed Oscar season.
