This Week's Interesting DVD Releases (February 17th, 2009)

I am most looking forward to two literary adaptations out on DVD this week. Choke adapts Chuck Palahniuk's novel of the same name, and I Served the King of England is drawn from Bohumil Hrabal's under appreciated and wonderful novel.

Other feature film releases out on DVD this week include Changeling, and two releases by the Criterion Collection, John Cassavetes' Faces and David Lean's Hobson's Choice.

The eighth season of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is the the week's most notable television release.

The Outsider - a Film about James Toback, which profiles the noted writer/director, and The Axe in the Attic, which follows two filmmakers on a 60 day roadtrip from New England to New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Are you filling out your Blu-ray library? If so, this week you can pick up Cold Mountain, The Constant Gardener, Gandhi, Good Will Hunting, Kramer Vs Kramer, The Passion of the Christ, and Pulp Fiction

What can you recommend buying or adding to the Netflix queue from this week's DVD releases?
