New on DVD and Blu-ray
(Warner Bros., $20)
This criminally overlooked 1973 road movie offers “one of the most accurate depictions of bum life ever to appear on American screens,” said LA Weekly. Al Pacino and Gene Hackman co-star as two vagrants who travel from California to Pittsburgh with dreams of opening a car wash.
Planet of the Apes Trilogy
(20th Century Fox, $70)
Against all odds, 2011’s reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise spawned “the best science-fiction trilogy since the original trio of Star Wars movies,” said IndieWire.com. The war movie that concluded the series delivers “first-rate” storytelling and “astonishing” special effects.
Orphan Black: Complete Series
This sci-fi series about a cadre of female clones was never a hit, but it offered quietly excellent TV for five seasons, said TheVerge.com. Of course, Emmy-winner Tatiana Maslany is what makes it timeless. Her ability to create and sustain 11 distinct characters remains “nothing short of astonishing.” ■
