Two great films accompany the not-so-great remake of Clash of the Titans onto DVD this week. Ip Man was released in China in 2008, but is just now making its way to stores in the States. It’s loosely based on the life of one of Bruce Lee’s first instructors, and a martial arts legend. The second highly praised film in stores this week is The Art of the Steal, a documentary about the fight to relocate the priceless art of Philadelphia’s Barnes Foundation, against the instructions in the will of its now-deceased founder.
