MUD Matthew McConaughey gratifyingly continues to explore his wayward mid-career path in this haunting but over-ambitious and overlong drama from talented writer-director Jeff Nichols (“Take Shelter”). The star plays a mysterious fugitive who changes the lives of two young boys (Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland, both excellent) in rural Arkansas. Sam Shepard and Reese Witherspoon costar. Extras: Nichols commentary, making-of featurettes. (Lionsgate, $19.98; Blu-ray, $24.99) Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
