“The Green Knight”

David Lowery’s long-delayed adaptation of the 14th-century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight was finally released in July to universal acclaim, including a four-star review by yours truly. While interested viewers had to wait forever from its initial release date to finally getting to see it, the wait from theaters to Blu-ray has been much smaller, as it’s already out physical and digital media. A gorgeous rumination on masculinity and courage, Lowery’s dreamlike vision casts Dev Patel as Gawain, a nephew to King Arthur, who sets out on a journey to face his destiny. Captivating in ways that modern American filmmakers are rarely allowed to be these days, this stands among the best films of the year.

“High Sierra” (Criterion)

Movies wouldn’t be the same without Raoul Walsh’s 1941 noir flick about an ex-con on a job gone wrong in the Sierra Nevada. Released early that year, it made Humphrey Bogart a viable star, and we all know what would happen next there. It also proved the skill set of writer John Huston, who would team up with his new star later that same year and make a little movie called “The Maltese Falcon.” All of the ingredients for their future fame and influence are here, including Bogey’s unique blend of irascible charm and Huston’s gift with plotting. There’s more fat on the bone than in their best works, but the Criterion release is a beauty for classic movies fans, and even includes Walsh’s 1949 Western remake of his own material, “Colorado Territory,” in its entirety.
