The Taking of Pelham 123; Food, Inc.; North by Northwest: 50th Anniversary Edition

The Taking of Pelham 123
(Sony, $28.96)
Denzel Washington exudes “stoical everyman heroism” as a subway dispatcher in this “energetic” update of the 1974 thriller, said The New York Times. His cat-and-mouse game with John Travolta’s hijacker uses the “gritty physicality” of New York’s subway to heighten the suspense.

Food, Inc.
(Magnolia Home Entertainment, $26.98)
Director Robert Kenner’s big-screen debut shows that dinner “can be one dangerous business,” said Rolling Stone. The exposé of the food industry and the health effects of its supersized, supercheap food are scarier than anything you’re likely to see in a horror film.

North by Northwest: 50th Anniversary Edition
(Warner Home Video, $24.82)
Half a century hasn’t dulled the thrill of Hitchcock’s “wrong-man thriller,” said Entertainment Weekly. The Mount Rushmore scene is still riveting, and Cary Grant is “at his cheekiest and most charming” as an adman forced to turn fugitive.
