With the exception of our illustrious headliner, you can mark this down as the third week in a row we’ve had with just a few notable releases on home video. Maybe Quentin Tarantino’s latest is big enough to render all others negligible, but for what it’s worth, we also have a relationship dramedy starring Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie, as well as an animated film from France and a small nature documentary and our customary Criterion Collection releases. See below for the full list.
Also available this week:
Two more from the Criterion Collection: The 1984 cult sci-fi comedy Repo Man (98%) is newly available on both Blu-ray and DVD, and an Eclipse Series collection of four of influential Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi‘s films is available on DVD.
The animated French import A Monster in Paris (84%), about a mutated flea with an operatic singing voice (among other things).
Dragon (84%), starring Donnie Yen and Takeshi Kaneshiro in a period martial arts drama about a quiet craftsman whose shadowy past comes under investigation of the local detective.
