The best new title we got in this week is easily THE KINGDOM OF DREAMS AND MADNESS (@ SALE), an amazing new documentary about Studio Ghibli and its founding master animators Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata. Filmed during the making of these two titans' respective final films (THE WIND RISES and THE TALE OF PRINCESS KAGUYA), it's a meticulous and meditative look at what it means to make such personal art and the team spirit at Ghibli. Also, best Cat performance of 2014. 


Also on deck this week: Those Heroes at the Criterion Collection bring us Lucrecia Martel's debut feature LA CINEAGA (@ BLU SALE). There's DOWNTON ABBEY SEASON 5 (@ BLU SALE), in which none of the characters appear have aged in the decade-plus covered by the show. Brad Pitt in a WWII tank in the brutal, thrilling FURY (@ BLU SALE). Robert Downey Jr. makes peace with his crusty dad (Robert Duvall) in THE JUDGE (BLU). WHY DON'T YOU PLAY IN HELL? (@ BLU SALE) is a completely insane bit of Japanese punk filmmaking, real see-it-to-believe-it stuff. Nicole Kidman is an amnesiac in BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP (BLU). The 1976 adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' AT THE EARTH'S CORE (@ BLU SALE) lands on blu-ray. Classic lit lovers should pick up Kenneth Branagh's version of HENRY V (@ BLU SALE) and the double feature set of JEAN DE FLORETTE and MANON OF THE SPRING (@ BLU SALE). Comic fans get JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS (@ BLU SALE).
