DVD/BD Release List – 3/29/11

Illustration for article titled DVD/BD Release List – 3/29/11

It’s a monster week for new releases, with some unlikely potential double-features. For those who have deeply seated maternal issues, give the surprisingly terrific Disney musical Tangled a spin, then follow it up with the Oscar-winning ballet psychodrama Black Swan. Or if you’d rather go a different way, Black Swan pairs well with a few other movies on this list, like Mike Leigh’s Gilbert & Sullivan biopic Topsy-Turvy (given that they’re both about the creative process) or Dario Argento’s Inferno (given that director Darren Aronofsky goes for some over-the-top, Argento-y effects in Black Swan). High-toned television is well-represented this week too, via the first season of HBO’s post-Katrina drama Treme, the fourth season of the AMC favorite Mad Men, and the complete set of the classic PBS miniseries Upstairs, Downstairs. (And though it’s not as schmancy as those three, the first season of the late ‘50s/early ‘60s series Dennis The Menace arrives today too.)
