Eddie Izzard : Circle | DVD | (18/11/2002)
from £2.94 | Saving you £10.01 (50.10%) | RRP
Circle reminds us that, despite his less than successful dalliances with film and TV, Eddie Izzard's reputation rests securely on his genius for stand-up comedy. Circle comes on the back of an ever-growing global touring schedule, with this particular performance being recorded in New York. Always sensitive to his environment, the comedian throws in several local references to gratify his strongly partisan audience. Much of the delight of an Izzard performance is watching him weave from topic to topic, often painting himself into a corner, and Circle is no exception. A little slow to get started, once he finds his stride this is a veritable masterclass in live comedy, dealing with subjects ranging from the absurd to the everyday. Indeed, Izzard is almost a human equivalent of The Far Side cartoon series, weaving the worlds of the bizarre and the ordinary together to make fresh points: witness his show-stopping account of the Death Star canteen. This is a must for all fans, equally so for those yet to fall under his spell. --Phil Udell

Shadow Of The Vampire | DVD | (24/09/2007)
from £2.00 | Saving you £1.30 (21.70%) | RRP
E. Elias Mehrige's Shadow Of The Vampire explores the fictional premise that the star of the famous 1922 German expressionist horror film Nosferatu was an actual vampire. When director F.W. Murnau (John Malkovich) sets about filming his monster masterpiece he makes a Faustian deal and enlists the grotesque reclusive Max Schreck (Willem Dafoe) to play Count Orlok. Schreck proceeds to both horrify and fascinate the unwitting cast and crew including producer Albin Grau (Udo Kier) actor Gustav von Wangenheim (Eddie Izzard) and actress Greta Schroeder (Catherine McCormack) who at first believe Schreck is merely an eccentric actor. As the production continues mysterious accidents and deaths begin to reveal why Schreck never gets any makeup.

Spike Milligan - I Told You I Was Ill | DVD | (03/12/2007)
from £2.98 | Saving you £2.84 (35.50%) | RRP
Just one of the many tributes paid to Spike Milligan when he died in 2002. From 'The Goon Show' to his solo work in series such as 'Q' and 'The World of Beachcomber' - not to mention his film work novels songs and childrens poetry - Milligan's zany surreal and unique style made its indelible mark and changed the face of comedy. His fan base was huge and ranged from fellow comedians to Prince Charles.
Velvet Goldmine | DVD | (07/06/2004)
from £5.90 | Saving you £0.09 (1.50%) | RRP
Somewhat misleadingly described by many as a mock-biopic based on the life of David Bowie, Velvet Goldmine is so much more than that. Journalist Arthur Stuart (Christian Bale) who sets out to discover whatever happened to Ziggy Stardust-like Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers), the famous bisexual glam star who crashed and burned spectacularly, but in the process helped Arthur awaken his own sexuality. It's an insane homage to 1970s glam rock in the UK as only American, who knew the movement from a distance, would make; it's a tribute to film director Nicolas Roeg's best work, particularly Performance and the Bowie-vehicle The Man Who Fell to Earth; it's a sci-fi movie about an alternative reality (the film's "present" is a 1984 that never existed and frustratingly never clearly explained); it's a queer Citizen Kane with lashings of eye-glitter, a complete mess, an absolute delight and a chance to see Ewan McGregor naked in case you didn't catch him in The Pillow Book as the Iggy Pop-like Curt Wild, Slade's lover/protégé.Director Todd Haynes, who made the incredibly spare Safe and a biopic about Karen Carpenter with Barbie dolls, crams in everything--including the kitchen sink, all the washing-up and half the larder--as if terrified he'll never get another chance to shoot even a commercial again. The pacing drags like catwalk-queen's glittery taffeta train at times, but then glorious swooping musical numbers and clever bits of allusive business arrive that will brighten the day of many a pop-fan and film-buff. Never anything less than ruthlessly inventive and demanding of patience and an open mind, it's one for connoisseurs. Viewers who prefer easy-viewing eye candy are well advised to stick with fluff like Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. --Leslie Felperin

We Know Where You Live | DVD | (03/12/2001)
from £3.39 | Saving you £10.98 (68.70%) | RRP
Ever since the comedy greats stepped beyond the fringe for The Secret Policemen's Ball the annual Amnesty International concert has been one of the highlights of the comedy circuit. 2001's offering was called We Know Where You Live and let's face it, where else are you going to see the UK's top comedians and pop acts on one stage? Compeered by the "surreal stylings" of Eddie Izzard, this compilation of the night's highlights includes a new version of the classic "Four Yorkshiremen" sketch with Eddie, Harry Enfield, Vic Reeves and Alan Rickman. Rickman stubbornly sticks to the script while all around him improvise. There is also a great performance from Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse as the Self-Righteous Brothers and the Goodness Gracious Me team going out for "an English". As well as the comedy there are live performances from Tom Jones, Badly Drawn Boy and the Stereophonics, which seem rather abrupt and heavily edited. Some of the material is quite old, though--any fans of Izzard will already have seen him do the Star Trek phaser sketch where he talks about the other settings, other than stun and kill! On the DVD: What really makes this worth the price (apart from supporting a very worthwhile charity) is the extra footage. As well as some more performance stuff, including Phil impersonating Eddie Izzard which is frighteningly spot on, there is back stage material and a news report following the Amnesty bus round London. Buy it, because other wise you might get Eddie round your house! --Kristen Bowditch

The majority of people have been blinded in a freak solar storm leaving them at the mercy of opportunists who still have their sight.

In the face of total human annihilation it is down to a select few to take a stand against mankind's deadliest adversary a foe with a fatal sting and an unquenchable taste for human flesh.
The Criminal | DVD | (08/10/2001)
from £5.39 | Saving you £14.60 (73.00%) | RRP
Despite being overshadowed by the welter of inferior, identikit cockney gangster movies, The Criminal is an invigorating and sophisticated crime thriller; deftly handling its theme of conspiracy, tinged with subtle comic moments, yet rife with tension and paranoia. In an assured performance of complexity, Steven Mackintosh plays J, a musician whose chance meeting with a beautiful blonde (Natasha Little in perfect femme-fatale form) brings some adventure in to his uneventful life. When she is brutally murdered, the unsuspecting and confused J is thrust in to a nightmare of corruption and conspiracy, doggedly pursued by two police officers (the superbly foul-mouthed Bernard Hill and Holly Aird) as well as a shadowy criminal elite (watch for a wonderful cameo from comedian Eddie Izzard as a shady informant). A thoroughly impressive debut from director Julian Simpson, the film maintains an uneasy, claustrophobic atmosphere, bolstered by Simpson's ear for decent dialogue (particularly the innovative opening), storytelling prowess and visual flair. Fresh, imaginative and enthralling, The Criminal is a gem waiting to be discovered and a perfect antidote to lazy gangster cash-ins. On The DVD: director Simpson offers an informative and chatty commentary that provides excellent insight into how such a visually stylish film was made so economically. The cast and crew also offer interview soundbites, as well as biographies and a trailer. --Danny Graydon
