DVD & BLU-RAY PICKS

Hugo (EIV): Martin Scorsese’s tribute to Georges Melies used the latest filmmaking technology to craft a passionate love letter to the early days of cinema and one of its true pioneers. [Read our full review] [Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray]

The Deep Blue Sea (Artificial Eye): Terence Davies’ adaptation of Terrence Rattigan’s play was a welcome return to the big screen, with juicy roles for Rachel Weisz, Tom Hiddleston and Simon Russell Beale. [Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray]

Another Earth (20th Century Fox): A low-budget drama with a big sci-fi premise offers us a startling blend of genres. The debut feature of writer-director Mike Cahill has fashioned a story that’s like an episode of The Twilight Zone scripted by Kryzstof Kieslowski. [Buy it on DVD and Blu-ray]
