Another relatively thin week for new releases on home video, with the exception of one outstanding television series. We’ve got a middling actioner, a lazy biopic, a terrible B movie, a bizarre melodramatic thriller, and Breaking Bad (thank you for saving, the week, Walter White). There are also some notable smaller films and reissues, so bear with us:
Also available this week:
Red Obsession (100%), a global documentary profile of the wine industry, narrated by Russell Crowe.
Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me (94%), a documentary about the band that chronicles its commercial failure and subsequent acclaim.
Wolf Children (90%), a Japanese animated film about a young woman who falls in love with a wolf-man and, upon his death, moves to the country to raise their two children.
Criterion is releasing a massive 25-film set of the classic Zatoichi films, following the adventures of the blind samurai.
