While far from director Clint Eastwood’s best or worst film, The 15:17 to Paris is a fascinating, almost experimental examination of the filmmaker’s best and worst impulses.
New releases on DVD and Blu-ray this week include: Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter, starring Matt Damon and Cécile De France; The Fighter, starring Mark Wahlberg and Academy Award winners Christian Bale and Melissa Leo; and The Switch, with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman.
