  • Billy Elliot [2000] Billy Elliot | DVD | (18/04/2006) from £5.09  |  Saving you £10.90 (68.20%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Foursquare in the gritty-but-hearwarming tradition of Brassed Off and The Full Monty comes Billy Elliot, the first film of noted British theatrical director Stephen Daldry. The setting is County Durham in 1984, and things 'oop North are even grimmer than usual: the miners' strike is in full rancorous swing and 11-year-old Billy's dad and older brother, miners both, are staunch on the picket lines. Billy's got problems of his own. His dad's scraped together the fees to send him to boxing lessons, but Billy's discovered a different aptitude: a genius for ballet dancing. Since admitting to such an activity is tantamount, in this fiercely macho culture, to holding up a sign reading "I AM A RAVING POOF", Billy keeps it quiet. But his teacher, Mrs Wilkinson (Julie Walters, wearily undaunted) thinks he should audition for ballet school in London. Family ructions are inevitable. Daldry's film sidesteps some of the politics, both sexual and otherwise, but scores with its laconic dialogue (credit to screenwriter Lee Hall) and a cracking performance from newcomer Jamie Bell as Billy. His powerhouse dance routines, more Gene Kelly than Nureyev, carry an irresistible sense of exhilaration and self-discovery. Among a flawless supporting cast Stuart Wells stands out as Billy's sweet gay friend Michael. And if the miners' strike serves largely as background colour, there's one brief episode, as visored and truncheoned cops rampage through neat little terraced houses, that captures one of the most spiteful episodes in recent British history. --Philip Kemp

  • Romeo Is Bleeding [1993] Romeo Is Bleeding | DVD | (19/05/2003) from £2.76  |  Saving you £10.23 (78.80%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Romeo Is Bleeding is the flawed black comedy from director Peter Medak (The Krays) about a bad cop who slowly gets his due. Gary Oldman plays yet another quirky character, this time a New York detective on the take. His life goes haywire as he squares off with a Russian hit woman. Despite an intriguing cast and great dialogue, the movie becomes a bit too eccentric for its own good as several actors have nothing to do. The high point is Lena Olin, who finally has a role she can sink her teeth into: her zesty, monstrous assassin, Mona Demarkov, is one of the great movie villains. --Doug Thomas

  • My Name Is Joe [DVD] My Name Is Joe | DVD | (18/03/2013) from £2.89  |  Saving you £13.10 (81.90%)  |  RRP £15.99

    The second of many collaborations between acclaimed director Ken Loach and award-winning screenwriter Paul Laverty, My Name Is Joe is a typically hard-hitting drama with humour, passion, tragedy and violence in equal measure. Peter Mullan (Orphans) stars as Joe, a recovering alcoholic who has done a few things in his past which he'd rather forget. Out of work and on the dole, he keeps sane by coaching a local football team largely made up of delinquents. When one of Joe's players, Liam, gets involved with some local gangsters a chain of events is set in motion which not only threatens the lives of those concerned but also impacts on Joe's budding love affair with social worker, Sarah. Set in the stark surroundings of a socially deprived Glasgow, My Name Is Joe is another masterful social-realist work from Loach supplemented by an arresting performance from Peter Mullan (who won Best Actor at Cannes for this performance).

  • My Name Is Joe [1998] My Name Is Joe | DVD | (29/04/2002) from £9.75  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Can we talk? Everybody is pretty well agreed that Great Britain's Ken Loach is one of our most important filmmakers. On the basis of his work with actors alone--often actors who are unknown until showcased in his films--he commands a place in the modern Pantheon. The problem is that he sounds terminally "worthy"; his films invariably reflect a commitment to framing harsh sociopolitical realities and steeping us in the fight for justice, a square deal or a square meal. They sound, in short, as if they're "good for you"--whereas the fact is that they are almost always damned good, period.My Name Is Joe makes for an excellent introduction to Loach country--partly because it's just a tad more immediate in its basic viewer appeal. Joe Kavanagh (Peter Mullan), out-of-work Glasgow housepainter, is a terrifically attractive fellow, and though he is also a recovering alcoholic, he seems eminently pulled-together and ready for yeoman service as a movie leading man. The main story line concerns his encounter with and growing attraction to a smart social worker (Louise Goodall). There is nothing star-crossed about their potential love, but each is tough enough to set limits till they've travelled over a distance of mutual ground. Meanwhile, Joe's status as role model among his more emotionally and economically precarious neighbours--an extended family of man--is good for a surprising number of lusty laughs and one fatal, criminal complication that could jeopardise his future. Peter Mullan won a well-deserved Best Actor award at Cannes in 1998, and subsequently directed a family comedy-drama of his own, Orphans. --Richard T. Jameson, Amazon.com

  • Young James Herriot [DVD] Young James Herriot | DVD | (26/03/2012) from £8.99  |  Saving you £11.00 (55.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Inspired by the character and early works of James Herriot, the much loved English veterinary surgeon and author of the bestselling works ‘All Creatures Great and Small’, Young James Herriot finds James at the birth of his career in the 1930s, taking up his place at the Glasgow Veterinary College. From his first day as a young student, James suffers the pranks of his associates, makes new friends, and discovers that the lodging he had paid for doesn’t exist. Thrust immediately into hard times, his newfound friends find him a room with them at the house of the eccentric Aunt Elspeth. James is confident and inspired – but he soon discovers that a good deal more than confidence and inspiration are needed to assess the physical health of animals and, in some cases, the emotional health of his acquaintances. As he attempts to mend sick horses, ailing sheep and a kennel of purebred dogs, he soon discovers that life and medicine is much more complicated than he first thought; and that passion – no matter how well-intentioned – can be a very deceptive guide.
