The Master

New Releases, week of 3/2/13: Who is the Master Edition

12:00 PM on 02.26.2013 // Hubert Vigilla

The Master, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Holy Motors, and more on DVD/Blu-ray

Even though Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master didn't do well at the 2013 Academy Awards, it will always run Bartertown in my heart. If you watched Flixist's Google Hangout for the Oscars, you know we all expected Joaquin Phoenix to rush the stage and attack Daniel Day-Lewis during the ceremony. (Maybe next year.)

There are plenty of other big new releases this week, but none of them are The Master. (Sho nuff!) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, the big Razzie winner of 2012, also hits DVD and Blu-ray today. Rounding out the batch are Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Leos Carax's Holy Motors, the indie relationship drama The Loneliest Planet, Chicken with Plums from Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud, the underwhelming Elmore Leonard adaptation Freaky Deaky, and the acclaimed documentary on AIDS How to Survive a Plague.

On the re-release side, Criterion is putting out Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin's documentary Chronicle of a Summer as well as a Blu-ray edition of Kenji Mizoguchi's Sansho the Bailiff. There's also a re-issue of the film Joshua Tree from acclaimed stuntman and action director Vic Armstrong. And some more exploitation classics from Redemption Video, this time: zombies.

After the cut, this week's DVD and Blu-ray releases, and a little dose of mastery.
