    One of the great films by Stanley Donen (Singin' in the Rain Charade) after the studio era had come to a close Two for the Road was a break-off with the old system one which allowed Donen to further stretch his art aided by screenwriter Frederic Raphael (Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut) in this tale of a couple voluntarily stretching themselves through the long period of their relationship. Portrayed in fragments that span the couple's time together in marriage Two for the Road runs the course of a relationship (between Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney) that finds a circumstantial come-together escalate into newlywed-status and through a series of travails into the serious situation of bearing a daughter. The disturbance of marriage and/or life is chronicled from here on. After so many studio-system smash-hits Two for the Road marked a reckoning for director Donen — which went on to influence directors like Jacques Rivette for its portrayal of a couple in interaction and its keen sense of duration across the length of their time together. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Stanley Donen's Two for the Road for the first time on Blu-ray in a Dual Format edition. Special Dual Format Edition Features: New 1080p presentation of the film (on Blu-ray) in its original aspect ratio. Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.

  • Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler. [Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler.] [Masters of Cinema] [Blu-ray] Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler. | Blu Ray | (28/10/2013) from £9.49  |  Saving you £10.50 (52.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    One of the legendary epics of the silent cinema - and the first part of a trilogy that Fritz Lang developed up to the very end of his career - Dr. Mabuse der Spieler. [Dr. Mabuse the Gambler.] is a masterpiece of conspiracy that even as it precedes the mind-blowing Spione from the close of Lang's silent cycle constructs its own dark labyrinth from the base materials of human fear and paranoia. Rudolf Klein-Rogge plays Dr. Mabuse the criminal mastermind whose nefarious machinations provide the cover for - or describe the result of - the economic upheaval and social bacchanalia at the heart of Weimar-era Berlin. Initiated with the arch-villain's diabolical manipulation of the stock-market and passing through a series of dramatic events based around hypnotism charlatanism hallucinations Chinese incantations cold-blooded murder opiate narcosis and cocaine anxiety Lang's film maintains an unrelenting power all the way to the final act... which culminates in the terrifying question: WHERE IS MABUSE?! A bridge between Feuillade's somnambulistic serial-films and modern media-narratives of elusive robber-barons Lang's two-part classic set the template for the director's greatest works: social commentary as superpsychology poised at the brink of combustion. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Lang's early masterpiece in its fully-restored version on Blu-ray in 1080p for the first time ever. Special Features: New officially licensed transfer from restored HD materials New and improved optional English subtitles with original intertitles Exclusive feature-length audio commentary by film-scholar and Lang expert David Kalat Three video pieces: an interview with the composer of the restoration score a discussion of Norbert Jacques creator of Dr. Mabuse and an examination of the film’s motifs in the context of German silent cinema 32-Page Booklet featuring vintage reprints of writing by Lang

  • Dracula [Blu-ray] [1979] [Region Free] Dracula | Blu Ray | (06/10/2014) from £8.19  |  Saving you £9.80 (54.50%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Chalk this one up as something that seemed like a good idea at the time. Frank Langella had just taken Broadway by storm in a revival of the play based on Bram Stoker's classic vampire novel. He was tall, elegant, and almost painfully romantic--all qualities that failed to translate to this garish, tarted-up film version. The story remains the same, if told in greater length than in Bela Lugosi's version. The film even offered Laurence Olivier as vampire-hunter Van Helsing (in one of several roles he played during the period that required a middle-European accent) and a young Kate Nelligan as the woman whose love (and blood) Dracula most wants. But director John Badham, working from W.D. Richter's clunky script, makes a hash of most of it, relying on special effects to do the heavy lifting. --Marshall Fine

  • Spartacus [1960] Spartacus | DVD | (27/11/2000) from £4.64  |  Saving you £7.60 (58.50%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Stanley Kubrick was only 31 years old when Kirk Douglas (star of Kubrick's classic Paths of Glory) recruited the young director to pilot this epic saga, in which the rebellious slave Spartacus (played by Douglas) leads a freedom revolt against the ailing Roman Republic and its generals. Kubrick would later disown the film because it was not a personal project--he was merely a director-for-hire--but Spartacus remains one of the best of Hollywood's grand historical epics. With an intelligent screenplay by then-blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo (from a novel by Howard Fast), its liberal message of freedom and civil rights, highly relevant in early-1960s USA, is still quite powerful and the all-star cast (including Charles Laughton in full toga) is full of entertaining surprises.Restored in 1991 to include scenes deleted from the original 1960 release, the full-length Spartacus is a grand-scale cinematic marvel, offering some of the most awesome battles ever filmed and a central performance by Douglas that's as sensitively emotional as it is intensely heroic. Jean Simmons plays the slave woman who becomes Spartacus's wife, and Peter Ustinov steals the show with his frequently hilarious, Oscar-winning performance as a slave trader who shamelessly curries favour with his Roman superiors. The restored version also includes a formerly deleted bathhouse scene in which Laurence Olivier's patrician Crassus (with restored dialogue dubbed by Anthony Hopkins) gets hot and bothered over a slave servant played by Tony Curtis. These and other restored scenes expand the film to just over three hours in length. Despite some forgivable lulls, this is a rousing and substantial drama that grabs and holds your attention. Breaking tradition with sophisticated themes and a downbeat (yet eminently noble) conclusion, Spartacus is a thinking person's epic, rising above mere spectacle with a story as impressive as its widescreen action and Oscar-winning sets. --Jeff Shannon
