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. This week's notable new DVD offerings are few, though in addition to the title featured here, Hannibal Rising is now out on DVD, as is the second season of The Closer.
Curse of the Golden Flower
Nominated for Best Costumes at this year's Academy Awards, Curse of the Golden Flower is a visually stunning film, which shouldn't come as a surprise coming from the director of Hero and House of Flying Daggers, Yimou Zhang. The story focuses on the Emperor Ping and his family, as they face power struggles both within their own family and outside the palace walls where rebellious warriors lurk. This DVD originally came out in March, but today the Blu-ray version is being released, which will make the beauty of the film that much more staggering.
