GREY GARDENS This 1976 documentary by the Maysles brothers is both fascinating and discomfiting. It details the routines of two Jackie Kennedy relatives in extremis, Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter, Edie. Living in their crumbling East Hampton mansion, they play out calm denial (Edith) and desperation (Edie). Extras: “The Beales of Grey Gardens,” 2006 sequel; Albert Maysles audio commentary; digital restoration. (Criterion Collection, Blu-ray, $39.95, available now)
