Probably the most exciting release this week is Robert Altman's masterpiece NASHVILLE, which tells the story of numerous folks in and around the music scene in the eponymous city as they prepare for a political convention and a music festival to celebrate the US Bicentennial. The heroes at The Criterion Collection have finally released this sprawling American epic in gorgeous new Blu-ray and DVD transfers, available in a dual-format set, loaded with extras. 



Joe Swanberg, one of the pioneers of the so-called "Mumblecore" movement has quickly become a marquee name in the American independent film scene. His latest, DRINKING BUDDIES, stars Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson as best friends who work at a brew-pub where they spend all their time getting drunk and flirting with each other. Both are in "committed" relationships, but as we all know, nothing spoils those like a few well-timed adult beverages.



Don't forget about the latest installment in the Marvel Comics movie universe. The newest X-Men film follows everyone's favorite immortal Canadian brawler on a trip to Japan where more of his mysterious past is uncovered. Taking its cues more from thrillers of the 70s than today's comic-book extravaganzas, THE WOLVERINE is one of the more interesting superhero movies to come around lately.


As for the rest, make sure you catch the following: There's extremely rare Italian thriller INVESTIGATION OF A CITIZEN ABOVE SUSPICION (@ BLU SALE). The latest Young-Adult novel series to make it to the screen with THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES (BLU).

And don't forget this bit of pure weirdness, 1980's SATURN 3 (@ BLU SALE), featuring Kirk Douglas and Farrah Fawcett battling a dubbed Harvey Keitel and his killer robot on a remote space station. From the director of SINGIN' IN THE RAIN of all things! Check out the trailer:
