(1995, Columbia TriStar, PG, priced for rental) With Emma, Sense and Sensibility, and Clueless all hitting screens in the past two years, Jane Austen deserves a posthumous power table at Drai’s. So how come this British TV movie (released here theatrically) is the only one that rises above the Masterpiece Theatre topiary, getting at Austen’s bone-dry ironies and knowledge of the heart? As the 27-year-old ”spinster” who stands to rekindle a long-dead flame, Amanda Root gracefully embodies the Austen heroine: perceptive, kind, proper, and gleaming with hidden longings.

(1985, Voyager, unrated, $149.95) Even if you’re not a huge fan of Terry Gilliam’s looking-glass fantasy — in which a bureaucratic sad sack (Jonathan Pryce) gets lost in a byzantine future — this laserdisc boxed set is a revelatory chunk of Hollywood history. In addition to a new edit of the film, featuring dazzling visual clarity and pinprick sound, there’s also an hour-long documentary about the skirmishes surrounding Brazil’s theatrical release and — included with fitting perversity — the watered-down cut of the film that Universal initially foisted on the director and the public.

(1995, Orion, PG, $19.98) Leon Theremin’s most famous invention — an electronic musical instrument responsible for the ooo-EEE-ooo on the Beach Boys’ ”Good Vibrations” and countless ’50s sci-fi movies — was weird enough. His life was weirder still: fleeing Lenin’s Russia for the high life in Jazz Age New York, marrying a black dancer, getting kidnapped back home, and being forced to develop surveillance technology for the KGB. At the end of this lucidly bizarre documentary, when the 94-year-old Theremin reunites with his New York circle, it’s as though a secret history of the 20th century has reached closure.
