New on DVD and Blu-Ray

Barnes & Noble has once again begun their Criterion sale and Criterion has two big 4Ks out to celebrate, Okja and The Virgin Suicides. Okja is another reason to have a conversation about Criterion’s relationship to streamers, while Criterion double-dipping The Virgin Suicides just makes me wish they’d get to Marie Antoinette already (come to think of it, them releasing any other Netflix movie just makes me wish they’d get to The Meyerowitz Stories already). But more important work is being done elsewhere this week, particularly MVD bringing George Armitage’s wonderful, mean Miami Blues back into print and Paramount finally putting out William Friedkin’s brutal, fat-free action exercise The Hunted on Blu-Ray. And there’s also Everything Everywhere All At Once, which Letterboxd has crowned God Emperor of Cinema to the approval of many and the vocal disdain of many others. I’m seeing it this week so I’ll finally get to participate in everyone’s favorite part of watching new movies, picking sides on the discourse.
