A round-up of the latest releases available to buy on DVD & Blu-ray and download online. This month sees the release on the Disney adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's musical Into the Woods, All is Lost and Margin Call director JC Chandlor's cold New York crime drama A Most Violent Year and two of last awards-season's contenders, Foxcatcher and Whiplash. Into the Woods ★★★☆☆ The long-awaited Disney adaptation of Steven Sondheim's musical is full of striking cinematography and an all-star cast. Yet it is without a doubt a marmite film: you will either adore or hate its child-like play and repetitive singing. Narrated by James Corden, who plays a baker married to Emily Blunt, the film intertwines several of the Grimm brothers fairytales. The thin-on-the-ground extras include a small Streep Sings Sondheim video, There’s Something About The Woods doc, another entitled The Cast as Good as Gold, and an audio commentary by director Rob Marshall and producer John DeLuca. There is also a sing-along version included. Words: Bridie Pearson-Jones. Blu-ray, VoD & DVD. A Most Violent Year ★★★★☆
