Home Video Report: Cruise-Diaz Thriller Hits DVD

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — This may not be the most exciting week for home videos, but there are a few new releases worthy of our attention.

The most noteworthy may be Inception (above), Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a spy specializing in infiltrating dreams only to run up against his own subconscious.  (Read Bill Wine’s review.)  It’s been called a movie “tailor-made for DVD” — in standard format and a Blu-ray version with what we could term “bonus content.”

Mademoiselle Chambon is a French film about the love affair between a married man and his young son’s schoolteacher.

Cronos is the initial feature film from Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, an unorthodox tale about the seductivness of immortality.

For collectors, there’s a Michael Douglas film collection containing 10 Douglas movies going back to 1983,   and a Bob Hope collection — a three-disk set with five films remastered from new high-definition transfers.
