Tyler Perry’s Witness Protection Program

FEAR AND DESIRE

Four soldiers fighting in an unknown war find themselves behind enemy lines in a nameless country. A genuine curio: Not only was this 1953 release Stanley Kubrick’s first feature, but Paul Mazursky plays one of the soldiers. Extras: Kubrick documentary short “The Seafarers.” (Kino, $29.95; Blu-ray, $34.95)

SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY

John Schlesinger followed up “Midnight Cowboy” in 1971 with this bisexual ménage a trois: amoral artist Murray Head is sleeping with both Glenda Jackson and Peter Finch. The script is by then-New Yorker film critic Penelope Gilliatt. Extras: interviews with Schlesinger and Head. (Criterion, $29.95; Blu-ray, $39.95)

PETER GUNN:

THE COMPLETE SERIES

Continue reading below

All three seasons (1958-61), on 12 discs, of the detective show created by Blake Edwards and starring Craig Stevens (above). Has any TV show had a better opening theme (courtesy of Henry Mancini)? Extras: bonus CD with music from the series (Timeless Media, $99.99)

THE INVISIBLE WAR

Director Kirby Dick’s documentary about rape in the US military is doubly disturbing. The individual stories it relates from victimized former service members are heartbreaking and enraging, while the ineffectiveness of the Defense Department’s response to the problem is enraging in a different way. (New Video Group, $29.95)

TYLER PERRY’S WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM

Perry returns as America’s least unbuttoned elderly black woman. The great Eugene Levy (below with Perry) plays the CFO of a company used in a Ponzi scheme by organized crime. The feds stash Levy and his family with Madea. “My cousins,” she explains to a neighbor, “they lost all the pigmentation in their skin overnight.” The way Perry delivers the line, it actually is funny. (Lionsgate, $29.95; Blu-ray, $39.99)
