This Week's Interesting DVD Releases - April 26, 2011

The BBC miniseries Upstairs Downstairs, South Park: Complete Fourteenth Season, and Clerks - The Animated Series Uncensored highlight the week's television on DVD releases.

The Criterion Collection releases Brian DePalma's Blow Out and a Blu-ray edition of Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas tomorrow.

Three documentaries I am especially looking forward to are Selling God, which examines the intersection of pop culture and religious doctrine, Oliver Stone's Looking for Fidel, and Icons Among Us, which profiles living jazz legends.

Three Bob Dylan DVDs are out this week: Bob Dylan Revealed and Blu-ray editions of The Other Side of the Mirror - Bob Dylan Live at The Newport Folk Festival 1963-1965 and Bob Dylan: Don't Look Back.

Other Blu-reay releases include Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno, 15th anniversary edition of Clerks, and two Alejandro Jodorwsky films, El Topo and The Holy Mountain.
