DVD/BD Release List – 06/22/10

The list is loaded this week, with all the key categories represented. Want TV? Nickelodeon has a nice box set of Avatar The Last Airbender; HBO has the first season of its wry sitcom Hung; and the retro-minded Timeless has a collection of the offbeat 1961 detective series Checkmate (about an agency tasked with stopping crimes before they happen).Want arthouse? Catherine Breillat’s version of Bluebeard is one of her most provocative and accessible films; Sebastián Silva’s The Maid shows what happens when a faithful family servant gets burned out; and Abbas Kiarostami’s essential Iranian drama Close-Up gets the Criterion treatment on DVD and Blu-ray. Want rock ‘n’ roll? You can pick up a document of Bruce Springsteen’s recent world tour, and/or a look back at the creation of The Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main Street. Want to take a closer look at the dynamics of an endless conflict? Take your pick: both Green Zone and the original Death Race 2000 are available today.
