All about Allen

'Woody Allen: A Documentary'
As a New Yorker, you owe it to yourself to check out this three-hour-plus documentary on the famed writer/director/actor. While the film, which was featured on PBS' "American Masters," surely accentuates the positive, it's definitely a worthwhile glimpse into the life of a film legend. (DVD, $29.95)

Gimme 'Shelter'

The intense Michael Shannon ("Boardwalk Empire") plays a Midwestern man in tornado country who is driven to build a shelter. (DVD, $30.99; Blu-ray, $35.99)

See this Indie

Nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" like a movie about people getting tortured in a way so gross that my editor won't let me describe it. (DVD, $24.98; Blu-ray, $29.98)
