  • The Witches [Blu-ray] The Witches | Blu Ray | (08/01/2018) from £14.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    The Witches In the mid-sixties, famed producer Dino De Laurentiis brought together the talents of five celebrated Italian directors for an anthology film. Their brief was simple: to direct an episode in which Silvana Mangano (Bitter Rice, Ludwig) plays a witch. Luchino Visconti (Ossessione, Death in Venice) and screenwriter Cesare Zavattini (Bicycle Thieves) open the film with The Witch Burned Alive, about a famous actress and a drunken evening that leads to unpleasant revelations. Civic Sense is a lightly comic interlude from Mauro Bolognini (The Lady of the Camelias) with a dark conclusion, and The Earth as Seen from the Moon sees Italian comedy legend Totò team up with Pier Paolo Pasolini (Theorem) for the first time for a tale of matrimony and a red-headed father and son. Franco Rosso (The Woman in the Painting) concocts a story of revenge in The Sicilian s Wife, while Vittorio De Sica (Shoeshine) casts Clint Eastwood as Mangano s estranged husband in An Evening Like the Others, concluding The Witches with a stunning homage to Italian comic books.

  • Oedipus Rex [Edipo Re] [Masters of Cinema] (Dual Format Edition) [Blu-ray] [1967] Oedipus Rex (Dual Format Edition) | Blu Ray | (24/09/2012) from £8.69  |  Saving you £11.30 (56.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Three years after The Gospel According to Matthew, Pier Paolo Pasolini resumed his series of classical adaptations with asavage, highly personal take on Sophocles' ancient Greek tragedy Oedipus Rex (Edipo Re). As his first colour feature, Oedipus Rex makes brilliant use of wildly alternating Moroccan landscapes to transpose collective myth into a particular vision that is at once tender, sensual, and wholly unsparing.The film is divided into three sections set in different eras. The opening takes place in 1920s Italy, and recounts a birth thatechoes that of the director himself, the product of a beautiful bourgeoise's affair with a military officer. The mid section depicts a time outside of history - it is here that the myth of Oedipus (portrayed by Franco Citti of Accattone and Coppola's The Godfather), one of patricide and incest, plays out opposite the young man's mother/lover (Silvana Mangano). An epilogue shot on the streets of present-day Bologna finds Oedipus playing his flute for a bustling citizenry.

  • Hawks and Sparrows (1966) / Pigsty (1969) [Masters of Cinema] Limited Edition (Blu-ray) Hawks and Sparrows (1966) / Pigsty (1969) Limited Edition (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (22/02/2016) from £8.49  |  Saving you £9.50 (52.80%)  |  RRP £17.99

    From its sung opening credits, Hawks and Sparrows (Uccellacci e uccellini) is a wonderfully free-form picaresque fable that lampoons politics, religion and the state of modern Italy, as the beloved comic actor Totò, Pasolini regular Ninetto Davoli and a talking crow wander the landscape through a gauntlet of unexpected encounters. Pigsty (Porcile) is one of his most controversial works, interspersing the mute wanderings of cannibalistic savages against a barren, volcanic earth with the tale of Julian (played by Nouvelle Vague icon Jean-Pierre Léaud), his radically politicised fiancée Ida (Anne Wiazemsky, Au Hasard Balthazar), and the financial machinations of his father Herr Klotz in contemporary industrialised Germany. Both films demonstrate a restless, pioneering artist's exploration of the natural world contrasted with the societal structures that govern human life. Visually inspired and playing by no-one's rules other than his own, these two brilliant works by Pasolini are presented on Blu-ray for the first time in a new limited edition.

  • Pasolini (DVD) Pasolini (DVD) | DVD | (26/10/2015) from £7.69  |  Saving you £12.30 (61.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Written and directed by cult filmmaker Abel Ferrara (Driller Killer, Bad Lieutenant, Welcome to New York), this dark, daring drama tells the story of the fateful final days of the controversial filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini. Having recently finished Salò, or 120 Days of Sodom Pasolini has enraged audiences, critics and politicians with his homosexuality and the scandal that surrounds his films. Focusing on both his private and professional life, the film explores the inner-world of Pasolini in the days before his violent death. Starring Willem Dafoe (The Last Temptation of Christ) as the great auteur, and featuring Ninetto Davoli, who acted in many of his films, Pasolini is a powerful and evocative look into the dark world of one of cinema's most controversial figures, as seen through the eyes of one of modern cinema's most astonishing and surprising directors.

  • Pigsty [Porcile] [Masters of Cinema] (DVD) [1969] Pigsty (DVD) | DVD | (23/07/2012) from £5.99  |  Saving you £10.00 (62.50%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Decades on from its release, and featuring an all-star cast that includes Jean-Pierre Laud, Anne Wiazemsky, Franco Citti, Pierre Clmenti, and Marco Ferreri, Pigsty [Porcile] remains one of Pier Paolo Pasolini's most controversial and wilfully provocative works – a deranged parody of cinema as revolutionary act. It comprises parallel stories: (1) Clmenti and Citti as cannibalistic savages who rampage a world outside of any distinct time or place, and who push against the boundaries of human morality; (2) Godard-regulars Laud and Wiazemsky as a romantically engaged couple in a contemporary Germany painted as a morass of industrialisation, fascist impulse, and bestial instincts. Special Features: New high-definition transfer in the film's original aspect ratio Original Italian theatrical trailer Newly translated optional English subtitles Illustrated booklet featuring rare archival imagery, the words of Pasolini, and more!

    One of the handful of films that found Pier Paolo Pasolini sustaining a merrier mode of cultural assault, Hawks And Sparrows (Uccellacci E Uccellini) features Italy's popular comic actor Tot (known to cinephiles as the star of Roberto Rossellini's Dov' la liberta...?) and Pasolini regular Ninetto Davoli in a picaresque fable that lampoons politics, religion, and the legacy of neorealism.A crow gifted with the power of speech accompanies wandering duo Tot and Ninetto on a trail that leads to their roles as Franciscan friars who preach to the literal hawks and sparrows, before returning in time to gaze upon slum-dwellers, Danteist dentists, itinerant actor-hippies, and, ultimately, the state of the modern world.

  • Pier Paolo Pasolini Vol.2 Pier Paolo Pasolini Vol.2 | DVD | (23/04/2007) from £N/A  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £39.99

    Hawks And Sparrows (1966): The Hawks and the Sparrows a wildly comic fable stars the beloved stone-faced clown Toto as an Italian everyman the Ninetto Davoli as his good-natured but empty-headed son. Pasolini uses a comic crow which philosophizes amusingly and pointedly about the passing scene as a counterpoint to the performers representing humanity as they progress down the road of life. Pasolini presents a tragic fable which shows two delightful innocents caught like many Italians between Church and Marxism. Oedipus Rex (1967): A dark and riveting retelling of the classic Greek tragedy Oedipus Rex. Unknown to himself Oedipus kills his father and marries his mother. When the truth is discovered he puts out his eyes and Oedipus wanders the streets until he is found by his daughter Antigone a common blind beggar. Set in Morocco the film is a visual wonder of desert landscapes and powerful Moorish architecture. The interesting cast include avant garde film and theater director Carmelo Bene Julian Beck from New York's Living theater and Pasolini himself as the High Priest. This remastered version is a must for any serious video collector. Pigsty (1969): Porcile (Pigsty) the story of a cannibal in a medieval wasteland is interwoven with that of the son of an ex-Nazi industrialist in modern day Germany. The young German who is more attracted to pigs than his fiance and the cannibal become sacrificial victims of their different societies. This strange grotesque and thought provoking parable is filmed with such a calm beauty and underlying disgust that it gains a deep significance as an attack on the middle classes of the 20th century.
