The only really big release this week is INSIDIOUS CHAPTER 2 (BLU), which, if you couldn't guess, is the sequel to INSIDIOUS, which finds the poor haunted Lambert family as they try to uncover just what is keeping them connected to the sinister spirit world!

 

On the other end of the spectrum is Jem Cohen's small, delicate MUSEUM HOURS (@ BLU SALE). It focuses on the quiet friendship between a guard at a Vienna art museum and a Canadian tourist. As the film explores their relationship, it recontextualizes the art from the perspectives of history, the city, and the other patrons. This is a lovely little movie that was unfortunately overlooked by many during its all-too-brief run in theaters.

 

Also in this week: The Taviani brothers' latest film, CAESAR MUST DIE (@ SALE), about prison inmates staging a production of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar". The classic documentary FAR FROM VIETNAM (@ SALE), made up of several shorts from directors like Jean-Luc Godard and Agnes Varda, finally makes its way to DVD. There's a doc about the honeybee colony collapse crisis, MORE THAN HONEY (@ SALE). And we've also got recent TV sensation SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE! (@ SALE)

Lastly, but certainly not leastly, we got in a PAL/Region 2 Import DVD of the new Alan Partridge movie! ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA finds Steve Coogan returning as everyone's favorite radio has-been. This time he's somehow, amazingly, the only one who can safely defuse a dangerous hostage crisis! Here's the trailer:
