(Lionsgate, $29.95)
Oliver Stone’s biopic of former President Bush is a “much more evenhanded and thoughtful take” than expected, said the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The bevy of extras includes deleted scenes, commentary, and a “Research and Annotations Guide.” 

Yentl
(MGM, $29.98)
Barbra Streisand’s 1983 musical was a “vanity production,” said The New York Times, but it remains heartfelt “even at its kitschiest.” Streisand co-wrote, directed, and starred as a Jewish girl in a shtetl who dresses as a boy to get an education.

Otis Redding Respect: Live 1967
(Shout! Factory, $14.98)
Otis Redding didn’t “simply play concerts,” said Rolling Stone. He “erupted like a human Mount Vesuvius.” D.A. Pennebaker’s concert film was shot in Oslo, where Booker T. and the MGs and Sam and Dave joined the soul giant.
