Troll: The Complete Collection Blu Ray (Eureka!)

Troll is a routinely bad Charles Band production. The tenuously-connected Troll 2, however, is one of the most entertainingly terrible films ever made. Best Worst Movie is a satisfying documentary exploring the cult phenomenon surrounding the latter.

Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno (2009) Blu Ray (Arrow Academy)

Serge Bromberg's reconstruction and postmortem of Henri-Georges Clouzot's aborted would-be masterpiece presents us with some visually-striking footage but not enough depth. However, the extras help to fill in the blanks.

This documentary, combining movie and video diary footage plus interviews with various family members and friends is a touching tribute to a bright flame of talent who burnt out all too quickly. Amongst the interviewees are Ben Harper, Naomi Watts and Ang Lee.
