New DVDs

Here are a few releases due out Tuesday, July 1. Star ratings are by Seattle Times movie reviewers, freelancers or wire services. For full reviews, search the title at seattletimes.com. Release dates are subject to change.

★★★½  “The Unknown Known” (PG-13): Oscar-winning filmmaker Errol Morris (“The Fog of War”) zooms in on former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who proves “masterful at saying little about the consequences of his official actions,” writes reviewer Tom Keogh. “When asked, given that he was a hawkish architect of the (Iraq) war, if it was a mistake to have entered into it, he shrugs off the question by saying ‘time will tell.’ ”

★★★½  “Like Father, Like Son” (not rated; for mature audiences): Two couples grapple with the terrible truth that their 6-year-old sons were switched at birth. “Why didn’t I see it?” one wife (played by Machiko Ono) asks, in soft anguish. “I’m his mother.” The drama is in Japanese, with English subtitles.
