Kinsey (20th Century Fox) Almost totally ignored by Bushwhacked Oscar voters, this biopic of pioneering sex researcher Alfred Kinsey is a throwback to the heyday of the liberal Hollywood prestige picture. There’s a commentary track by writer-director Bill Condon, and the two-disc version includes 20 deleted scenes, a gag reel, and something called an “Interactive Sex Questionnaire.”

Tarnation (Wellspring) Jonathan Caouette’s quasi-experimental documentary certainly gets points for originality. A bold if often unwieldy mix of still photos and Super 8, home video and re-enactment, dramatic scene and ambient collage, this portrait of the artist focuses on Caouette’s struggles with mental illness and his relationship with his troubled mother.

Team America: World Police (Paramount) South Park Conservatives, take note! Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s latest takedown of those haughty leftist celebrities arrives on unrated DVD with deleted and extended scenes and a bevy of behind-the-scenes featurettes. And yes, there’s a longer, more explicit version of the puppet sex scene.
