All systems are go in ‘Gravity’

Thanks to director Alfonso Cuarón’s prodigious gifts, “Gravity” succeeds simultaneously as a simple classic shipwreck narrative (albeit at zero gravity), and as an utterly breathtaking restoration of size and occasion to the movies themselves. Using an ingenious combination of live action, CGI, cutting-edge lighting techniques and 3-D, Cuarón puts viewers into a tumbling, floating, frighteningly unrooted world where Sandra Bullock and George Clooney convincingly move with balletic grace and puffy, moon-man awkwardness. The DVD includes “Aningaaq,” a seven-minute short by “Gravity” co-writer Jonas Cuarón. The Blu-ray adds featurettes. Warner, $29 for DVD, $36-$45 for Blu-ray
