[Editor's Note: Tuesday Video Alert is a weekly column announcing "notable" titles fresh to DVD and/or Blu-ray, sometimes as reissues, and in every region under the sun.]
Sweetie [The Criterion Collection, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1]: "Natural forces war with repressed emotions in Jane Campion's Sweetie, where the wind in the trees signifies the obscured memories and potential salvation of a family mired in stagnation." Glenn Heath Jr.
Somewhere [Universal Studios Home Entertainment, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1]: "What is Sofia Coppola's latest film, Somewhere? It's a Hollywood film about Hollywood that completely ignores the rules of traditional narrative filmmaking, of indie filmmaking too." Miriam Bale
Kes [The Criterion Collection, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1].
Gaumont Treasures: Volume 2 - 1908-1916 [Kino International, DVD, Region 1].
The Ernie Kovacs Collection [Shout! Factory, DVD, Region 1].
The Bicycle Thieves [Arrow Films, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 2].
Les Diaboliques [Arrow Academy, Blu-ray, Region 2].
If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise [HBO Home Video, DVD, Region 1]: "If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise is a moving testament to human resilience in the face of unimaginable failure of government. Let us pray that Spike needn't return to the city for a third outing." Rob Humanick
Junebug [Eureka Entertainment, Blu-ray, Region 2]: "Junebug is the older, wiser sibling of home-for-the-holidays family melodramas like Pieces of April." Ed Gonzalez
Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster [Well Go USA, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1]: "Picking up roughly a decade after the bleak if preposterous Pacific War milieu of Ip Man, director Wilson Yip's sequel follows the titular Wing Chun master as he attempts to set up shop anew amid the ever-splintering martial arts traditions of British-occupied Hong Kong." Joseph Jon Lanthier
Rabbit Hole [Lionsgate Home Entertainment, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1]: "Aiming for a refined style of catharsis, John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole is the kind of tragedy that requires a human sacrifice." Jesse Cataldo
The King's Speech [Anchor Bay Entertainment, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1]: "Working from the British-royalty-biopic template perfected by Peter Morgan, The King's Speech provides a cute, complication-free portrait of the Duke of York (Colin Firth), who would eventually become King George VI of England, and his difficulty overcoming a lifelong stammer." Nick Schager
The Way Back [Image Entertainment, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1]: "Landscape trumps character in The Way Back, just as the Siberian and Mongolian wilderness overwhelms the seven gulag escapees at the heart of Peter Weir's 1940-set film." Andrew Schenker
Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story [Docudrama, DVD, Region 1]: "Who ever knew Kevin Youkilis was Jewish? Who ever even thought to ask? The ferociously goateed Boston Red Sox infielder is one of several Hebrew hammers lightly profiled in the new documentary Jews and Baseball, a sunny jaunt through the diamond that reaches from Lipman Pike, the first-ever paid baseball player, through Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax up to Shawn Green." Aaron Cutler
Square Grouper [Magnolia Home Entertainment, DVD, Region 1]: "Documentarian Billy Corben revisits Florida's narcotics-smuggling history with Square Grouper, the marijuana flipside to his superior Cocaine Cowboys." NS
Vision [Zeitgeist Video, DVD, Region 1]: "Vision tells the story of Hildegard von Bingen (Barbara Sukowa), a 12th-century Benedictine nun who was interested in medicine, botany, poetry, science, and had a thing against any male authority that wasn't God's." Diego Costa
Gulliver's Travels [20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1]: "Gulliver's Travels is a reminder, at least, that Jack Black can be charming even when he's hamming it up for a script." Paul Schrodt
American Dad! Volume 6 [20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, DVD, Region 1].
Goemon [Funimation, DVD/Blu-ray, Region 1].
Ingrid Bergman in Sweden: 3-Film Collection [Kino International, DVD, Region 1].
The Fantastic Factory Collection [Arrow Films, DVD, Region 2].
Der Tiger von Eschnapur/Das indische Grabmal [Eureka Entertainment, DVD, Region 2].
Knock on Any Door [Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, DVD, Region 2].
The Last New Yorker [Brink DVD, DVD, Region 1]: "It's always a challenge to create drama out of merely nostalgia for an inaccessible past, but the tonal confusion of Harvey Wang's debut feature, The Last New Yorker, also speaks to the absurd emotionalism underlying much of the longing for a pre-Giulianified New York City." Christian Blauvelt
