A good portion of 2012′s biggest critical and financial successes are coming to Blu-ray this week including a trip back to Middle Earth, the newest adaptation of a Broadway classic, Kathryn Bigelow’s search for Osama bin Laden, and the latest “comedy” from Judd Apatow. On the catalog front things are on the lighter side with a British Godzilla ripoff, a time travelling motorcyclist, and one of the quintessential 80s teen sex comedies.
Aaron Ploof from Sticky Shoe Review gives his opinion on Rust and Bone:
"It’ll stick with you after viewing, and that makes it worthwhile. Slow and delibrate it may be, but it finishes strong in the end. A beautiful piece of art, this is. Jacques Audiard should be proud."
It could have simply been melodrama, but Rust And Bone is about much more than just PC themes and outlandish plotting. Cotillard’s performance is primed for awards, while Schoenaerts is a rough diamond.
