Recommended Discs & Deals of the Week: ‘They Came Together,’ ‘Night Moves,’ ‘L.A. Confidential’ and More

Written by on September 2, 2014 


Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. If we were provided screener copies, we’ll have our own write-up, but if that’s not the case, one can find official descriptions from the distributors. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

Night Moves (Kelly Reichardt)


Rather than the gear shift that was to be expected, Night Moves rather clearly offers a careful reconfiguring (but no sacrifice) of the idiosyncrasies, both formal and narrative, which have made Kelly Reichardt’s voice so important to the American cinema. A critical adherence notwithstanding, the new sense of ambition which Night Moves allows her to exhibit speaks volumes, posing the question of where, now, she might go. – Nick N.

They Came Together (David Wain)


While we still have a few months left to go in 2014, chances are that the latest feature from David Wain will remain the funniest film of the year. Brilliantly and lovingly satirizing the romantic-comedy genre, I wrote about it in detail here, and thankfully, the Blu-ray release comes packed with notable extras. The feature commentary from Wain and co-writer Michael Showalter has its laughs, but takes a more technical look at the making of the film. There’s also over 30 minutes of worthwhile deleted scenes, but the best bonus is a 1-hour and 43-minute live reading of the script (featuring many bits that didn’t get shot) from Sketchfest 2012 with a wealth of notable comedic talents, some of whom made it into the feature. As I can see myself revisiting this over and over again, it’s a must-buy. – Jordan R.
