De Palma | DVD | (30/01/2017)
from £11.48 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
One of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma's career started in the 60s and has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito's Way, and Mission: Impossible. In this lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his life and work but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and his remarkable experiences navigating the film business, from his early days as the bad boy of New Hollywood to his more recent years as a respected veteran of the field. In the end, what emerges is a funny, honest, and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all.

Katy Perry: Part Of Me | DVD | (05/11/2012)
from £4.48 | Saving you £11.51 (72.00%) | RRP
More of a music documentary than a concert video, Katy Perry: Part of Me chronicles Perry's year-long California Dreams World Tour in 2011 with an abundance of personal interviews, film of Perry interacting with her fans, and concert footage from California and around the globe. Absolutely bursting with energy, Perry's a fascinating singer, songwriter, and performer who's faced a fair amount of adversity in her career, and whose upbringing was very different than that of most pop stars. This film plays at times almost like a video diary. Perry philosophises about everything from growing up in a strictly Pentecostal Christian family to her fairy-tale outlook on life, costuming choices, how her own experiences and emotions influence her lyrics and music, her drive to remain true to herself, and the difficulty of sustaining a long-distance marriage with actor Russell Brand. There's also plenty of footage with Perry's costumers, makeup artists, various assistants, and friends, including actress Shannon Woodward. But some of the most interesting interviews are those with her sister Angela Hudson, who travels with the show, and her mother and father regarding their commitment to accepting and supporting Perry and her career despite potential conflicts with their religious views. One discussion that's oddly omitted is any hint of why Perry changed her name. While the personal and backstage footage is heartfelt and quite intriguing, the film seemed somewhat lacking in actual concert footage, though viewers are treated to at least parts of "Firework," "California Gurls," "Part of Me," "Last Friday Night," and "Peacock." --Tami Horiuchi

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

Change your life... and change the world. I Am is the incredible story of how one man went from riches to rags and it changed his life for the better. One of Hollywood's leading comedy directors, Tom Shadyac is the creative force behind such blockbusters as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Liar Liar, The Nutty Professor and Bruce Almighty. However, in I Am, Shadyac steps in front of the camera to recount what happened to him after a cycling accident left him incapacitated, possibly for good. Meeting with a variety of thinkers from the worlds of science, philosophy, academia, and faith - including Noam Chomsky and Archbishop Desmond Tutu - Shadyac emerges with a new sense of purpose, determined to share his own awakening to his prior life of excess and greed and investigate how he as an individual, and we as a race, could improve the way we live our lives. The result is a fresh, energetic, and life-affirming film that that poses two practical and provocative questions: what's wrong with our world, and what can we do to make it better?
