  • For No Good Reason [DVD] For No Good Reason | DVD | (08/09/2014) from £8.59  |  Saving you £9.40 (52.30%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Made over the course of fifteen years For No Good Reason explores the connection between life and art through the eyes of seminal British artist Ralph Steadman. Insightful humorous and visually stunning this is a study in honestly friendship and the ambition that drives an artist. Ralph's rise to prominence began in the early 1970's during the fallout from the love and hope that had swept the western world during the 1960's. This legendary time for music literature art and philosophy was the catalyst along with his developing relationship with writer Hunter S Thompson for Ralph to express and chart the wreckage that followed; a large-scale disintegration of a demoralised counter-culture. His art gained recognition in the press and popular-culture publications both in the UK and US for its bold comment on his fiercely heartfelt politics. The film is a richly creative visual feast about the power and importance of art to achieve Steadman's aim I learnt to draw... to try to change the world. Director Charlie Paul spent 15 years meticulously amassing the footage and creating the remarkable animations for the film to match the same anarchic energy anger and free spirit of Steadman's pictures. Through Johnny Depp's lead in this intimate portrait we are able to reach to the heart of what make this artist tick his friendships and fallings out his love for art and his passion for civil liberties. For No Good Reason is a riot of stories and images as we take a trip through the wild and dark days of Steadman's time with Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas writer Thompson the Rumble In The Jungle; gunfights with literary giant William S Burroughs and his fiercely heartfelt politics. This is an invention energetic occasionally harrowing but inspiring and uplifting film with contributions from Terry Gilliam Richard E. Grant and music from Slash All American Rejects Jason Mraz James Blake Ed Harcourt and Crystal Castles.

  • Death of a Gentleman [DVD] Death of a Gentleman | DVD | (26/10/2015) from £8.15  |  Saving you £9.84 (54.70%)  |  RRP £17.99

    What would you do if something you loved was dying? What if the sport that created your heroes and the back-story to your life, was in danger of disappearing? Test cricket is a game that has no right to exist in the 21st century. The five day game is the purest form of the second most popular sport on earth, representative of tradition, history and identity. Yet as the short attention spans of a new generation dictate immediacy, the Test game is in danger of being swamped by its shorter, sexier, more financially viable cousin ?Twenty20'. Money corrupts the best of intentions, and as cricket's administrators rub their hands with glee, the Gentleman's game is now a product left at the back of the shelf. Two cricket fans who became journalists, Old Etonian Sam Collins and larrikin Aussie Jarrod Kimber, from opposite ends of the social and geographic scale but united by their love of Test cricket, join forces to try to help save it. They embark on a journey across the cricketing empire to find the answer to the question ?Who really cares about Test cricket?' They talk to the players, ex-players, broadcasters, journalists, administrators and fans. They venture, often uninvited, into boardrooms, offices, hotel rooms and even the home of cricket itself, Lord's, looking for answers as to who is responsible, and what are they doing to save their game. Along the way they befriend journeyman cricketer Eddie Cowan as he prepares to make his Test debut for Australia in front of 70,000 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Eddie is the guy doing what they always dreamed of. His infectious love for Test cricket helps convince them that Test cricket is still relevant, that it is worth saving. They travel around Australia with Eddie and experience his ups and downs on tour, watch the Australia vs. India Test series, journey to India to take a closer look at the IPL, bug famous cricket people in the UK and look at open corruption in Sri Lanka as they try to piece together a picture for the future of Test cricket. They run into ogres, well-meaning automatons and the feverishly self- obsessed. Everyone passes the buck. As Eddie's future teeters in the balance, so too does the future of Test cricket. As a story of deceit, incompetence and greed unfolds; one man is living his dream, while two others are trying to keep theirs from dying. Death of a Gentleman is not a nostalgic look back at a sport that professionals played against amateurs while stopping for tea. It's a modern morality tale about a future where sport and money collide, India as a super-power, the curse of the professional administrator and set in a world where fans are better connected to (but more disconnected from) their heroes than ever before. More than that, it is a final call; not just to cricket fans and administrators, but everyone in a rapidly changing world. If you care about something that's in danger, then don't pass the buck, do something about it. Before it's too late.

  • Lubitsch In Berlin [DVD] Lubitsch In Berlin | DVD | (10/02/2014) from £14.98  |  Saving you £15.01 (50.10%)  |  RRP £29.99

    Before he arrived in Hollywood to leave his indelible (and inimitable) mark on timeless comedies like Trouble in Paradise and The Shop Around the Corner Ernst Lubitsch created an expansive body of work in Germany that proved to be as varied in its tone as it was sophisticated in its measure of man and woman. This set collects six recently restored works from the silent phase of Lubitsch's career and casts new light on the director both as a fully-formed comic master and as a virtuoso of cinematographic technique. Ich Möchte Kein Mann Sein (1918)One of the first collaborations between Lubitsch and the exuberant Ossi Oswalda Ich möchte kein Mann sein [I Wouldn't Like to Be a Man] is a concise sketch of society life in three acts. When Ossi's uncle goes away on a business trip a new guardian steps in to tame the distractable niece. But Ossi finds a way out of the house and into a grand ball... by way of a brazen cross-dressing scheme - and triggers what is perhaps Lubitsch's most twisted finale. Die Puppe (1919)Four amusing acts from a toy-chest - so reads the opening title of the comic masterpiece Die Puppe. [The Doll.] adapted by Lubitsch and co-scenarist Hanns Kräly from a libretto by A. M. Wilner (based in turn on a tale from E. T. A. Hoffmann). Ossi Oswalda stars in a double-role as both the mischievous daughter and automatonic creation of a wildly coiffed dollmaker. When a wealthy baron decides the time has come for his prudish nephew to take a wife an uproariously ribald plot unwinds into what is perhaps the world's first-ever sex-doll comedy. Die Austernprinzessin (1919)As Die Austernprinzessin. [The Oyster Princess.] Ossi Oswalda makes another turn as a plutocrat's rambunctious daughter - now the heiress of a global oyster empire devoting her wiles once again to the service of manipulation. A comic high-point in the master's oeuvre Die Austernprinzessin. showcases the trademarks of the Lubitsch Touch and its ten-fingered dexterity resulting in a film that is simultaneously clever concise and risqué. Sumurun (1920)By turns melodramatic and grotesquely comic Sumurun brings together performances by star-players Paul Wegener (Der Golem.) Pola Negri Harry Liedtke and Ernst Lubitsch himself (in the role of an ultra-pathetic hunchbacked minstrel) for this ensemble tale pulled from the milieu of The Arabian Nights. Featuring hundreds of extras milling through open-air set-pieces and dusky harem-chambers alike Sumurun demonstrates Lubitsch's ability to transfigure rote romance into vibrant pageant. Anna Boleyn (1920)Emil Jannings plays King Henry VIII in the story of Anne Boleyn's movement from the outskirts of the court to the royal boudoir and off to the chopping-block. Suffused with an atmosphere of entrapment that would not be out of place in later films by Fritz Lang and prefiguring the stately contretemps in John Ford's Mary of Scotland Anna Boleyn proceeds with a deathward momentum unique in Lubitsch's oeuvre. Die Bergkatze (1921)Set in one of Lubitsch's hallmark mythical kingdoms Die Bergkatze [The Mountain-Lion / The Wildcat] finds Lubitsch in exuberantly expressionistic mode employing a host of optical masks to create perhaps the most visually audacious comic spectacle of his career. Pola Negri plays the daughter of a band of thieves; seduction of army commander (and audience) ensues. Lubitsch's personal favourite work of all his German films Die Bergkatze represents a peak in both Lubitsch's silent oeuvre and the silent cinema as a whole.
