This DVD boxset pulls together 16 of his most famous and renowned films, from his early short film Proud to Be British (1973), through his early years and his first big breakthrough with the self-reflective Driving Me Crazy in 1988. The explosion of popular culture in the mid-late 90s led to his most popular films, with expose looks at the likes of LA-based Madam Heidi Fleiss (1995), two of the decade's most enduring music icons in Kurt and Courtney (1998) and an investigation into the still unsolved murders of two of the biggest superstars of rap in Biggie and Tupac (2002). Along the way, Nick Broomfield chases after former British Prime Minister Mrs Thatcher in Tracking Down Maggie (1994), visits a famous S&M parlour in New York in Fetishes (1996), trains with young female US Army recruits in Soldier Girls (1981) interviews America's female serial killer Aileen Wuornos (twice!), and finally embarks on a quest to find the real person behind the persona in his latest film, Sarah Palin: You Betcha (2011).

Paris, Texas | Blu Ray | (28/01/2013)
from £6.99 | Saving you £13.00 (65.00%) | RRP
Something like a perfect artistic union is achieved in the major components of Paris, Texas: the twang of Ry Cooder's guitar, the lonely light of Robbie Muller's camera, the craggy landscape of Harry Dean Stanton's face. In his greatest role, longtime character actor Stanton plays a man brought back to his old life after wandering in the desert (or somewhere) for four years. He has a 7-year-old son to get to know, and his wife has gone missing. The material is much in the wanderlust spirit of director Wim Wenders, working from a script by Sam Shepard and L.M. Kit Carson. If the long climactic conversation between Stanton and Nastassja Kinski renders the movie uneven and slightly inscrutable, it's hard to think of a more fitting ending--and besides, the achingly empty American spaces stick longer in the memory than the dialogue. Winner of the top prize at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival. --Robert Horton
