This Week's Interesting DVD Releases (December 8th, 2009)

The sixth film in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, is in stores tomorrow, but of all this week's DVD releases I am hoping Santa brings me the Criterion Collection's 25-DVD AK 100: 25 Films of Akira Kurosawa, which includes four of the acclaimed director's films that have never been released on DVD.

Three documentaries are high on my list: Freedom's Fury, which documents the 1956 Hungarian revolution; Beautiful Losers, the story of an early 1990's NYC art collective; and Wesley Willis's Joy Rides.

The fifth season of Lost is the television highlight of the week.

What new releases are you picking up or adding to your Netflix queue this week?
