Feature

New on DVD and Blu-ray

Margaret; Senna; Barbarella

Margaret(Fox Searchlight, $40) Years from now, this little-noticed 2011 release will be remembered as “one of the decade’s cinematic wonders,” said NewYorker.com. Kenneth Lonergan’s story about a teenager who may have caused a bus accident becomes “a rhapsodically panoramic view of life in New York.”

Senna(Arc, $23) Even if you don’t care about Formula One racing, this documentary is “so exciting it won’t matter,” said Salon.com. Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna was the “Muhammad Ali of his sport,” a storybook character whose 1994 death at the track elevated him to the sphere of racing immortal.

Barbarella (Paramount, $30) A scantily clad Jane Fonda and her 1968 “psychedelic sci-fi campfest” have just gotten a “gorgeous Blu-ray upgrade,” said NYPost.com. Fonda plays an intergalactic peacekeeper on the hunt for a dangerous inventor, but this movie is “less about plot than way-out visuals.”
