The Future
(Roadside Attractions, $28)
After an irritating start, Miranda July’s recent comedy about a noncommittal young couple “blossoms into something affecting,” said The New York Times. Even the use of a cat narrator contributes to a charming, mystical strain that makes the film “powerful, unsettling, and strange.”

The Rules of the Game
(Criterion, $40)
This 1939 Jean Renoir–directed film serves as “both a portrait of the artist and a vision of the times,” said The New Yorker. Playing a social charmer, Renoir hosts a party in a French château, triggering a series of erotic capers that symbolize the “moral and political crises” of prewar France.

The Office: Special Edition
(BBC/Warner, $40)
This 10th-anniversary edition of Ricky Gervais’s “trailblazing” BBC comedy features all 12 episodes, the two-part holiday special, and the pilot, said the New York Post. The “copycat” U.S. version has had a longer run, but it’s “still got a long way to go” to match the original in effectiveness.
