New on DVD and Blu-ray
American Honey (Lionsgate, $20)
When a Texas teen joins a crew of young nomads, the journey she takes opens a window on an America “that shouldn’t be ignored,” said TheAtlantic.com. Newcomer Sasha Lane co-starred opposite a surprisingly appealing Shia LaBeouf in “one of the most visually electrifying films” of 2016.
Hitchcock/Truffaut (Universal, $27)
This documentary is “duck soup for cinephiles” said the Portland Oregonian. A long conversation about crime filmmaking between Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut provides the foundation, while acolytes like Wes Anderson and Martin Scorsese enthusiastically chime in.
Snowden (Universal, $30)
Oliver Stone’s “strongest effort in years” wasn’t a perfect movie, said Flavorwire.com. But in dramatizing Edward Snowden’s effort to expose the NSA’s spying operation, the JFK director showed he still has a role to play, as the nation’s resident “patriot/provocateur.”
