DVD: “Lovelace,” “Dexter: The Complete Final Season,” & More!

Lovelace_510x317

It’s a good week for binge-watchers. The final season of Showtime’s serial killer drama series, Dexter — featuring the awesome Charlotte Rampling — is out, while the entire (and often batshit crazy) series Weeds is collected in one package.

Finally, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s biopic about an iconic porn star, Lovelace, makes a great double-feature with Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato’s documentary about the legendary porn film she starred in, Deep Inside Deep Throat.

 

Lovelace

($29.99 Blu-ray, $24.98 DVD; Anchor Bay)

Amanda Seyfried plays Linda Boreman, a young woman who entered the public consciousness as porn star Linda Lovelace in a 1970s box office smash called “Deep Throat,” about a woman who could orgasm from oral sex. Award-winning gay filmmakers Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein (Howl, The Times of Harvey Milk) dramatize her story, which involved an abusive, manipulative boyfriend played by Peter Sarsgaard, and sour mother played amazingly by Sharon Stone. The sole extra entails a short featurette.

 

Dexter: The Complete Final Season

($63.98 Blu-ray, $55.98 DVD; Showtime)

Showtime’s Dexter, about a Miami crime scene investigator who happens to be a serial killer – and makes other serial killers his targets – came to a close with this eighth and final season. Charlotte Rampling plays Dexter’s (Michael C. Hall) spiritual mother, a psychiatrist who played a significant role in his becoming the serial killer he is, while his sister must come to grips with her brother’s secret life. The climax left many fans unhappy, but there were some pretty awesome moments along the way… Also available: the complete series, with a handful of documentaries.

 

Weeds: Complete Collection

($119.97 Blu-ray: Lionsgate)

What started out as a wry comedy about Mary Louise-Parker’s suburban mom turned pot dealer, Nancy Botwin, became one of the screwiest, most unpredictable series on cable. Enjoy its eight seasons in a marathon… with a plate of pot brownies, possibly.
