This Week's Interesting DVD Releases - December 7, 2010

Inception, Christopher Nolan's sci-fi thriller, is in stores tomorrow.

Other theatrical releases out this week include Criterion Collection releases of Guillermo del Toro's Cronos and David Cronenberg's Videodrome, which stars James Woods and Deborah Harry.

Franz Kafka's A Country Doctor and Other Fantastic Films by Koji Yamamura collects several films by one of Japan's leading animators.

Two worthwhile music documentaries are out this week, Lennon NYC (which aired recently on PBS) and Look at What the Light Did Now (which profiles singer-songwriter Leslie Feist).

Big River Man documents a long distance swimmer's attempt to swim the length of the Amazon River.

ESPN Films 30 for 30 Gift Set Collection, Volume 1 collects the first 25 films in ESPN's acclaimed documentary series. The 30 for 30 films I have already seen have impressed me, I am looking forward to watching the rest.

Married...with Children: The Complete Series and Law & Order: Season Eight are also among the week's television highlights.

Lost in Translation is the highlight of the week's new Blu-ray releases.
