Accattone/ Comizi d'amore (1961 / 1958) (Masters of Cinema) | Blu Ray | (26/03/2012)
from £11.98 | Saving you £11.01 (47.90%) | RRP
The debut feature of Italian filmmaker-novelist-poet-provocateur Pier Paolo Pasolini (Sal, or the 120 Days of Sodom; The Gospel According to Matthew; The Decameron), Accattone rocked the cinema world with its depictions, at once raw and elegant, of the underside of Roman street life - and, in the process, seemed to announce a new direction for Italian films: a neo-neorealism. On the mean streets of Rome, Accattone's eponymous pimp (played by Franco Citti, one of a remarkable cast of local non-professionals) leads a hand-to-mouth existence on the very margins of society: prostituting, scrounging, exploiting. When his prize prostitute Maddalena is arrested and jailed, the pimp's fortunes dwindle, and he is forced to confront his own existence. The work of one of Italy's foremost auteurs, Accattone combines a fascination with poverty, sexual mores, and the entrapments of society, with a sense of humanity and sanctity rarely seen in cinema.
Cobain: Montage of Heck | DVD | (27/04/2015)
from £4.30 | Saving you £15.51 (70.50%) | RRP
COBAIN &ndash; Montage of Heck invites you to experience Kurt&rsquo;s life art and mind through his own unique lens bringing you as close to the generation-defining icon as it&rsquo;s possible to get. Experience Kurt Cobain like never before in the first fully-authorized portrait of the famed rock music icon. Director Brett Morgen expertly blends Cobain's personal archive of art music and never-before-seen home movies with animation and revelatory interviews from his family and closest confidantes. Following Kurt from his earliest years in Aberdeen WA through the height of his fame a visceral and detailed cinematic insight of an artist at odds with his surroundings emerges. While Cobain craved the spotlight even as he rejected the trappings of fame his epic arc depicts a man who stayed true to his earliest punk rock convictions always identifying with the outsider and ensuring the music came first. Fans and those of the Nirvana generation will learn things about Cobain they never knew while those who have recently discovered the man and his music will know what makes him the lasting icon that he is.
Ghostwatch | DVD | (17/10/2011)
from £7.25 | Saving you £5.74 (44.20%) | RRP
The BBC broadcast 'GHOSTWATCH' on the 31st of October 1992. It seemed to be a live broadcast which was a cross between Crimewatch and the movie Poltergeist. The programme terrified Britain and caused outrage in the press. It's legacy lives on, cited as an inspiration for 'The Blair Witch Project' and Derren Brown's ''The Sance'. GHOSTWATCH is regarded as a classic of the genre and remains as relevant, as terrifying and as inspirational today. Sarah Greene and Craig Charles report from a reputedly haunted North London council house for the outside broadcast, whilst Michael Parkinson and Mike Smith stay in the warmth and 'safety' of a BBC studio. The Early family are allegedly being harrassed by the ghost 'Pipes'- so named as his banging and crashing were initially attributed to bad plumbing. After a deliberately slow start the crescendo sees children speaking in tongues, Sarah Greene sent to her doom, and Michael Parkinson possessed by an evil spirit. Although pure fiction, the masterly combination of great scripting, intuitive direction and perfect casting made the supernatural pastiche appear frighteningly real. Despite being part of BBC Drama's Screen One series, the presence of Michael Parkinson convinced thousands of people it was real. The drama caused an uproar and was banned from repeat transmission for over a decade.

Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, codirected by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen. This special edition also features the 2006 follow-up to the film, The Beales of Grey Gardens, constructed from hours of extra footage in the filmmakers' vaults.

At last she travels north across the Arctic Circle up through Norway to Svalbard the most northerly permanently inhabited place on Earth where she has to cope with temperatures approaching minus 30 deg C. With a box of crayons in hand her journey takes her from train to boat to husky-sled to snowmobile as she is pulled ever northwards by what she calls 'the strongest point of the compass'.

As she reaches the Arctic Ocean she prepares for bed in a hotel made entirely of ice. Everywhere she goes she asks about the mysterious Northern Lights.
