Not the strongest week of new releases to DVD, with the top of the bunch being Werner Herzog’s new documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams. True to form, Herzog chose an eccentric topic in the Chauvet Cave, which contains the oldest cave paintings yet discovered. Since this cave is off-limits to the public, Herzog’s 3D documentary might be the best chance most of us will ever have to see the paintings.
This raucous rom-com chronicles the relationship of two busy singles, Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis), who agree to include sex in their friendship — minus the emotions and commitment. But things get complicated when Dylan (inevitably?) falls for his gal pal. Patricia Clarkson co-stars as Jaime’s hip mom and Woody Harrelson plays Dylan’s practical confidante, who advises him to man up when he pursues the newly dating Jamie.
