This Week's Interesting DVD Releases - December 13th, 2011

The Criterion Collection releases two Japanese new wave film classics by Seijun Suzuki this week, Tokyo Drifter and Branded to Kill.

A 20th annioversary edition of The Rocketeer is available on Blu-ray.

Monica & David, the story of two adults with Down syndrome who strive for independence, and The Black Power Mixtape, a Swedish film about America's Black Power Movement, are the documentaries that caught my attention.

The campy sitcom Sledge Hammer! The Complete Series is the television highlight.

X - The Unheard Music chronicles the Los Angeles underground music scene of the late 70s and early 80s.
