Not much new in town on the DVD front, except "New In Town," a pretty awful Renee Zellweger comedy.
The week does see the release of 1970 hippie curiosity "Zabriskie Point," Michelangelo Antonioni's impenetrable follow-up to his rep-making "Blowup."
The movie featured amateur actors Mark Frechette and Daria Halprin as a young man and woman who hook up and wander around Death Valley, where they tune in, turn on and end up in the middle of a freaky orgy scene.
The movie is badly acted, completely abstruse, but it has a legendary psychedelic soundtrack, featuring Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead.
Plus, at the end, stuff blows up real good.
It's yours for $19.97, no extras.
