First up, one of the most important movies of 2014, Ava Duvernay's SELMA (@ BLU SALE), about the landmark event in the Civil Rights movement, starring David Oyelowo as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Every great thing you've heard about this movie is true, and it couldn't be more timely, so make sure you see it.


Then there's the latest from legendary British filmmaker Mike Leigh. This time he's got MR. TURNER (@ BLU SALE), starring regular collaborator Timothy Spall as 19th Century romanticist painter J.M.W. Turner. Spall plays Turner as a sort of curmudgeon, grunting his way through life, seemingly sad, but in truth keenly observant and capable of producing work of immense beauty. It's a lovely movie about the ways in which we interpret not just art but the artist behind it.


As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Gorgeous new collector's editions of Martin Scorsese's GOODFELLAS (@ BLU SALE) and the original MAD MAX (@ BLU SALE). Palme D'or winner WINTER SLEEP (@ BLU SALE), from Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan. Jude Law tries to steal a load of Nazi gold from a sunken sub in BLACK SEA (BLU). Classic Busby Berkeley on blu-ray with 42ND STREET (@ BLU SALE). Ryan Gosling makes his directorial debut with the fantasy LOST RIVER (BLU). Four Spielberg films finally available individually on blu: 1941 (@ BLU SALE), MUNICH (@ BLU SALE), THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS (@ BLU SALE), and DUEL (@ BLU SALE). Speaking of collections, there's a 7-film CLINT EASTWOOD COLLECTION (@ BLU SALE), a 5-movie FRANK SINATRA COLLECTION (@ BLU SALE) -- with ANCHORS AWEIGH (@ BLU SALE), ROBIN & THE 7 HOODS (@ BLU SALE), and ON THE TOWN (@ BLU SALE) also available on their own -- and the SERGIO LEONE ANTHOLOGY (@ BLU SALE). There's Roger Corman's men-on-a-mission movie THE SECRET INVASION (@ SALE), which would go nicely with the new blu-ray of THE MCKENZIE BREAK (@ BLU SALE). Know any Andrew "Dice" Clay fans? THE ADVENTURES OF FORD FAIRLANE (@ BLU SALE) is also out on blu. We've also got a ton of new TV on DVD this week, including new seasons of BROADCHURCH, MASTERS OF SEX, MR.
