New on DVD and Blu-ray

Incendies; Meek’s Cutoff; Scarface

Incendies(Sony, $46)It’s no surprise that this “sinuous, snaking drama” was nominated for an Oscar for best foreign film, said The Washington Post. When adult twins are instructed by their mother’s will to reconnect with relatives in the Middle East, they uncover a violent family past. Laced with trip wires, Incendies “hits hard.”

Meek’s Cutoff(Oscilloscope, $30)This minimalist Western about a group of settlers getting lost on their way to Oregon will “no doubt bore many people silly,” said Salon.com. But star Michelle Williams “manages to look luminous” in a 19th-century bonnet, and director Kelly Reichardt creates a powerful testament to female fortitude without even trying.

Scarface(Universal, $35)“Say hello to a little Blu-ray” that gangster buffs have been waiting a long time for, said the Bergen County, N.J., Record. Al Pacino hams it up in Brian De Palma’s “operatic, blood-splattered character study” of a Miami drug kingpin, and in this package the 1983 film is paired with the 1932 Howard Hawks original.
