American Honey, filmmaker Andrea Arnold’s sprawling, warts and all look at modern Americana, is both a staggering achievement and a bit too unwieldy for its own good.

With the studios taking a break for the holidays, we take a peek ahead this week at some of the DVDs coming out before the year’s end. There’s the horror parody Baghead, Ghost Town starring Ricky Gervais, and the popcorn-brained actioner Eagle Eye starring Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan. Plus, we look at two releases you may have missed recently: the original classic, The Day The Earth Stood Still, and Orson Welles‘ Touch of Evil.
There is at least one common thread shared by the major films coming out this week, and that’s the chilly reception they all received from the critics. From Eagle Eye, Nights In Rodanthe, and Choke, to Miracle At St. Anna, and The Lucky Ones, the consensus this week seems to be a negative one.
This week’s collection of new DVD arrivals left me scratching my head at first, until I stumbled on the geeky television comedy The Big Bang Theory and the dramatic goodness of Elia Kazan‘s film noir, Boomerang. Also out this week is Transformers on Blu-Ray, the office comedic drama The Promotion, and a plethora of new television seasons landing ahead of the fall’s new block of shows.
