DVD/BD Release List – 07/20/10

Heaps of worthy items in this week’s list, top-lined by The Bong Joon-Ho Collection, which includes three excellent films from one of world cinema’s best directors: the black comedy Barking Dogs Never Bite (which will be reviewed here next week), the offbeat monster movie The Host, and the heartbreaking murder mystery Mother. Also well-worth your time: the first season of the BBC horror-drama Being Human (reviewed here tomorrow), the Criterion Blu-ray editions of the Powell/Pressburger masterpieces Black Narcissus and The Red Shoes, and two well-crafted documentaries: The Most Dangerous Man In America (about the complicated case of Daniel Ellsberg and The Pentagon Papers), and Prodigal Sons (about the fiery relationship between a transsexual filmmaker and her adopted brother, who’s the illegimate son of Orson Welles). Finally, if you haven’t seen the wacky Belgian cartoon A Town Called Panic, man, hop to it! Where else are you going to see a horse in a Santa Claus suit, riding on a manta ray in order to dupe a race of wall-stealing fish people?
