Rob Marshall offers a frantic, fussy adaptation of the Broadway musical "Nine," coming Tuesday on DVD and Blu-ray (Sony, $29-$39). The film follows Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis), a legendary Italian filmmaker who in 1965, on the eve of directing his latest picture, finds himself creatively blocked and preoccupied with the women in his life. Viewers are asked to identify with a protagonist whose ego, insecurity and selfishness are confused with artistic genius. Guido was invented by Federico Fellini in his 1963 movie "81/2," a semi-autobiographical reverie on art, sex, obsession and forgiveness. But the characters and material that in Fellini's hands made for such a delicate, funny and self-aware meditation become a meaningless exercise in style, whipped by Marshall into a nearly incomprehensible froth. Extras include commentary and featurettes.
Also out Tuesday: "Fallen," "Hamlet" (2009), "Invader Zim" (Seasons 1 & 2), "Leap Year," "Marcus Welby, M.D.," "No Time for Sergeants," "Tooth Fairy," and Blu-rays of "Dirty Dancing," "Doctor Zhivago," "Escape From L.A.," "K-19: The Widowmaker" and "Saving Private Ryan."
