This Week's Interesting DVD Releases - October 18, 2011

The Criterion Collection releases Kineto Shindo's Kuroneko tomorrow. Other notable theatrical films include the vampire flick Sodium Babies, and Kevin Smith's Red State.

Among the Blu-ray releases are 40th anniversary edition of Willy Wonka & Chocolate Factory, The Guns of Navarone, The Goonies, and Cape Fear.

I am especially looking forward to two documentaries, The Shock Doctrine, based on Naomi Klein's book of the same name, and Page One: Inside The New York Times, an in-depth look at the newspaper's reporting in the digital age.

Music lovers can pick up Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest, which profiles the seminal hip-hop band.

The week's television highlights include Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Complete Season Three and V: The Complete Second Season.
