Other DVDs of note
Hart of Dixie Season 2.The O.C. alumna Rachel Bilson, 32, is as charming as ever as Dr. Zoe Hart in the second series of the CW hit. Zoe is a would-be heart surgeon who sets up a private practice as a GP in Bluebell, Ala., after failing to secure her dream job in New York. The charming dramedy follows Zoe's many travails as an outsider in a social scene ruled by the sugared, iron hand of Southern Belle Lemon (Jaime King) whose dad, Brick (Tim Matheson), is the town's long-trusted doctor. Scott Porter and Wilson Bethel are très masculine as Zoe's two love interests. It's due Tuesday from Warner Home Video. ( www.wbshop.com/; $59.98; not rated)
Only God Forgives. Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn ( The Pusher trilogy) stunned audiences in 2011 with his bare-bones existential thriller Drive, which featured Ryan Reynolds in one of his most powerful roles. The two team up again in this English-language Danish-French-Thai production, which features Reynolds as an expat who runs a Muay Thai club in Bangkok. Costars Kristin Scott Thomas and Vithaya Pansringarm both give electric performances. ( www.anchorbayentertainment.com; $29.98 DVD; $34.99 Blu-ray; rated R)
Shoot the Sun Down: Director's Cut. David Leeds' oddball revisionary western from 1978 features a very young and strikingly beautiful Christopher Walken as the only gun in the Southwest who can't be corrupted or bought. An adventurer, he throws his lot in with a strange party in search of gold. Superman's Margot Kidder is steamy as an indentured servant owned by the corrupt gold-seekers. Love happens. As does violence. And more violence. This lost gem gleams in Kino Lorber's gorgeous restored edition. ( www.kinolorber.com/; $24.95 DVD; $29.95 Blu-ray; rated PG)
