  • This Sporting Life [1963] This Sporting Life | DVD | (31/01/2000) from £24.06  |  Saving you £-18.07 (-301.70%)  |  RRP £5.99

    Prolific British filmmaker Lindsay Anderson weaves this small, evocative tale of young life at the crossroads in early 1960s Northern England. A rough, sullen young man (Richard Harris) working in the local coal mines begins to make a name for himself as a star rugby player, but even as he begins to fall in love he cannot escape the harsh realities of the bleak life around him. The rugby sequences in the film are striking, but no more so than the depiction of downtrodden people living in the shadow of industry and corruption that too often crushes their spirit. Harris in one of his first roles, is remarkably effective as an unlikeable but sympathetic figure trying against hope to savour the small joys life has to offer, and the film also features the debut of renowned actress Glenda Jackson. One of a series of working-class, character-driven British imports, This Sporting Life is one of the best on the field. --Robert Lane

  • Billy Liar - 50th Anniversary Edition [Blu-ray] [1963] Billy Liar - 50th Anniversary Edition | Blu Ray | (06/05/2013) from £11.48  |  Saving you £8.51 (42.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Billy Liar was the multimedia phenomenon of its era. Starting out as a novel by Yorkshire writer Keith Waterhouse, it rapidly became a long-running stage play, adapted by Waterhouse with playwright Willis Hall, which lead to the movie, scripted by Waterhouse and Hall for John Schlesinger to direct, then a stage musical and finally a spin-off TV series. Do you get the feeling it caught the mood of the times? The basic set-up owes a lot to James Thurber's classic short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Our hero, Billy Fisher, lives at home in a Bradford semi with his nagging parents and works as a lowly clerk in an undertaker's parlour. But, in his imagination he lives a rich and varied fantasy life as gallant military leader, suave socialite, best-selling novelist and so forth. Trouble is, he can't always keep fantasy and reality apart, any more than he can the keep two girls he's engaged to separate. Not to mention his other problems?. Schlesinger's direction brings out the desperation behind the comedy, and Tom Courtenay, at once defiant and hangdog, slips perfectly into the role created on stage by Albert Finney. But the whole cast's a joy, not least the great Leonard Rossiter as undertaker Mr Shadrach, Billy's saturnine boss. And then there's Julie Christie--the luminous spirit of the Swinging 60s--in her first starring role as the girl who offers Billy a chance of real escape. At the end, when she takes the train to London, away from the smoke and the grimness "oop" north, the whole British New Wave went with her. On the DVD: just the theatrical trailer which is a fairly crass affair. There's been no remastering, it seems, but both sound and vision are clean enough and the print preserves the original's full 2.35:1 widescreen ratio. --Philip Kemp

  • Viridiana [1961] Viridiana | DVD | (28/08/2006) from £17.35  |  Saving you £-1.36 (-8.50%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Banned in Spain and denounced by the Vatican Luis Bunuel's hilarious vision of life as a beggar's banquet is regarded by many as his masterpiece.

Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 1961 Cannes Film Festival this anti-clerical free-for-all is as shocking today as ever.

  • Flesh and Fury [1952] Flesh and Fury | DVD | (30/03/2009) from £7.65  |  Saving you £8.34 (52.20%)  |  RRP £15.99
