The Ten Commandments; Black Swan; Fair Game

The Ten Commandments
(Paramount, $90)
When it debuted in 1956, Cecil B. DeMille’s biblical extravaganza was considered a “work of soul-saving substance,” said The Kansas City Star. DeMille’s take on the Book of Exodus still ranks as the “ultimate Hollywood epic,” and this new collector’s set includes the 1923 silent original.

Black Swan
(Fox, $30)
Natalie Portman took home an Oscar for her “bravura” performance as a ballerina struggling for perfection, said the Chicago Sun-Times. Oscar-nominated director Darren Aronofsky delivers a “full-bore melodrama, told with passionate intensity, gloriously and darkly absurd.”

Fair Game
(Summit, $23)
Naomi Watts plays CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson and Sean Penn is her whistle-blower husband in this “sizzling political drama,” said the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The film details how the second Bush administration blew Wilson’s cover and exposes hard truths about American politics.
