Repo Man; The Impossible; Wuthering Heights

Repo Man(Criterion, $30) This “punked-out picaresque adventure” has been a critics’ favorite since its 1984 release, said Entertainment Weekly. Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton star as repossession agents who get in over their heads trying to find dead aliens. Criterion’s release adds much incisive commentary.

The Impossible(Summit Entertainment, $30) This “gut-wrenching” recent drama about a vacationing family separated by the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia is “difficult at times to watch,” said the Portland Oregonian. Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor make the agony palpable, while the re-creation of the disaster is “flawless.”

Wuthering Heights(Oscilloscope, $30) Though “glacially paced,” director Andrea Arnold’s “radical interpretation” of Emily Brontë’s novel proves “utterly absorbing,” said the Phoenix Arizona Republic. Arnold strips away all the sweeping scores and heaving bodices, making a familiar story feel “wholly new.”
