DVD: “Gravity,” “Blue Is The Warmest Color,” Mr. Nobody,” & More!


Getting lost – in love, outer space, time, even our dimension of reality — seems to be the big theme this week in home entertainment.

Groundbreaking 3D hit Gravity leads the charge, along with Cannes lesbian-buzz title, Blue is the Warmest Color (above).

Jared Leto delivers another incredible performance in the emotional, mind-bending Mr. Nobody, a gay Japanese graphic novel comes to life in Fujimi Orchestra: Cold Front Conductor and a couple of men get crazy in lust in gay indie Capital Games.



($44.95 3D Blu-ray, $35.99 Blu-ray, $29.98 DVD; Warner)

One of the year’s most gripping, eye-popping, technically groundbreaking films, Gravity sees a pair of astronauts lost in space after their ship is wrecked by a debris storm. Want a reason to own a 3D TV? Here ya go. Get a big one. Extras include a comprehensive feature length making-of, a new tie-in short film entitled Aningaaq, handful of featurettes and documentary about space debris narrated by Ed Harris.

Blue Is The Warmest Color

($24.95 Blu-ray, $19.95 DVD; Criterion Collection)

One of last year’s most talked-about LGBT titles, this Cannes Film Festival award-winner follows the relationship between a high school girl, Adele, and an older, blue-haired art student, Emma. Sexually graphic and emotionally profound, this quickly made a household name of star Adèle Exarchopoulos. This movie-only release, rushed to Blu-ray/DVD so that it can be seen and discussed ASAP (sadly, it was passed over by the Oscars folks despite its performances), will be followed later this year with a 2-disc extras-loaded version.


Fujimi Orchestra: Cold Front Conductor

($24.99 DVD; Ariztical Entertainment)

This adaptation of a popular Japanese yaoi (gay romance) comic and animated series sees complicated love arise between a conductor, Yuki, and petulant musical prodigy, Kei. Handsome Japanese lads and dramz y’all!


Mr. Nobody

($29.98 Blu-ray, $26.98 DVD; Magnolia)

This 2009 feature slipped well below the radar upon its initial release, but (presumably) thanks to star Jared Leto’s attention-getting turn in Dallas Buyers Club has come back around. In his last film before the actor’s pre-Dallas hiatus, Leto stars, mostly under convincing old-age makeup, as an elderly man, Nemo, whose past seems a big puzzle. Playing out in flashback from the high-tech future year of 2092, it seems that Nemo’s life is a series of Sliding Doors-style alternate paths stemming from a pivotal moment and decision during childhood. Mind-bending stuff, beautiful and poetic, fantastical, and at times heart-wrenching, don’t miss this one. Both the theatrical and extended cut are included, plus a making-of, deleted scenes, and brief promo featurette.


Capital Games

($24.99 DVD; Breaking Glass Pictures)

Two men from an advertising agency go from being rivals to passionate lovers after a night together during a retreat. However, one of the men turns out to be engaged to a woman and considers himself straight — this may not end well! Extras include behind the scenes footage.

      Gravity – gayest film ever. Actually, it’s not, so why is it on this list?
