Why 'The Kid With a Bike' Tops Indiewire's 5 DVD/Blu-ray Picks This Week


#4. "Robot and Frank"

A hit at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the low-key yet totally winning dramedy "Robot and Frank" imagines a future where robots are domesticated and used to help out around the house. Frank Langella stars as an aging jewel thief whose son buys him a domestic robot, only to use the generous gift as an aid to pull off another crime. Susan Sarandon co-stars.

Extras: Audio commentary by writer-director Jake Schier and a gallery of the film's posters.


#5. "Dangerous Liaisons"

Zhang Ziyi of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" heads the cast in Hur Jin-ho's sensual adaptation of the classic French novel, "Dangerous Liaisons." Jin-ho's take on the material updates Pierre Choderlos de Laclo's tale of sex and scheming to 1930s Shanghai.

Extras: A behind-the-scenes featurette; a making-of featurette; and the film's theatrical trailer.

    There are some really great releases this week, and I have wanted to see a few of those movies for a long time. The Kid with a Bike really piqued my interest when it was first released, and I can’t wait to check it out. A friend that I work with at DISH said that it was one of his favorite movies from last year. I just saw that I could rent it through Blockbuster @Home from DISH, which should save me some money. It love the wide variety of titles that they have because I can keep up with the latest Hollywood blockbusters as well as little indie movies like this!
