DVD/BD Release List – 5/24/11

Illustration for article titled DVD/BD Release List – 5/24/11

Three titles in particular leap out of this week’s list. José Luis Guerín’s In The City Of Sylvia is a singular piece of work, following a young tourist as he tries to recreate his fond memories of a romantic fling. The web-turned-basic-cable comedy series Childrens Hospital was one of the brightest spots of the stellar 2010 TV season, and is now available on DVD a couple of weeks ahead of its third season debut. And Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator is one of the comedian’s boldest, funniest, and most visually striking films; it’s now out on a well-stocked Criterion Blu-ray. (More details on that in tomorrow’s DVD section.)
