Le Voyage Dans La Lune; Project Nim; Outrage

Le Voyage Dans La Lune(Astralwerks, $16)The first science-fiction film ever made, Georges Méliès’s 1902 short about a journey to the moon is “no mere museum piece,” said NPR.org. Paired here with a new soundtrack by the French duo Air, the restored 14-minute film remains “an absolute marvel of visual theater.”

Project Nim(Lionsgate, $20)James Marsh’s “disturbing and funny” 2011 documentary about a chimpanzee raised by humans in 1970s New York serves as an indictment of the progressive mind-set, said the New York Post. Just because a primate will share a joint with you doesn’t mean it belongs in the house

Outrage(Magnolia Pictures, $27)This “beautifully staged” Tokyo gangster movie from Takeshi Kitano showcases the director-performer’s “considerable cinematic gifts,” said Variety. Some viewers may be turned off by the high body count, but the gore is redeemed by the finesse and dark glee with which it’s presented.
