What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue.

Volver
Penelope Cruz was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in this Spanish-language film, written and directed by her beloved Pedro Almodovar. In this ghost story/mystery, Cruz plays Raimunda, whose deceased mother's spirit returns to her town to settle some unfinished business. As was the case with Almodovar's All About My Mother, the fantastical story is driven by a group of strong-minded women with the male characters taking a far back seat.

Two more must-see DVDs, so

The Good Shepherd
Though admittedly on the long side, The Good Shepherd must have done something right to be nominated for Best Art Direction at this year's Oscars. Robert DeNiro ably directs this twisty and dark 1960s tale about the origins of the CIA. Matt Damon plays the morally upstanding Edward Wilson, whose world becomes increasingly shrouded in suspicion as he finds himself more and more entrenched in the Agency's secrets. Angelina Jolie costars as Edward's wife.

Twin Peaks: Season 2

If you've never seen "Twin Peaks," then get your hands on Season 1, stat. David Lynch's bizarre and addictive saga is truly one of the best-crafted series to have ever aired on TV — thanks in no small part to the brilliance of Kyle MacLachlan. But if Season 1 is a masterpiece, Season 2 is still a long-awaited gem for fans. The show hadn't quite plummeted into ridiculousness just yet, and we find out who killed Laura Palmer.

The Good Shepherd's slow pace requires patience, but if you stick with it you'll be rewarded with an accurate--and disturbing--look back at the origins and development of the CIA. Matt Damon is very good as Edward Wilson; he's fascinating to watch as he becomes entrenched deeper and deeper into the organization.
