Three Colors: Blue, White, Red
(Criterion, $80)
Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski’s classic trilogy showcases his “penetrating eye for behavioral detail,” said the Los Angeles Times. Blue, White, and Red’s intertwined stories about infidelity feature “indelible work” from an accomplished cast, including stars Juliette Binoche and Julie Delpy.

West Side Story: 50th Anniversary Edition
(20th Century Fox, $30)
The new Blu-ray version of the classic musical is “nothing less than spectacular,” said the Akron Beacon Journal. A young Natalie Wood again falls in love with a gang member, but this time in a transfer that’s “more colorful and far more detailed.”

Beginners
(Universal, $30)
Mike Mills’s “quirky comedy-drama” has “a rhythm all its own,” said the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Ewan McGregor is ”thoroughly enchanting” as an artist who learns that his terminally ill father is gay; Christopher Plummer is brilliant as “a man whose later years prove to be his most interesting.”
