Dune | DVD | (04/10/2004)
from £7.76 | Saving you £-4.80 (-80.10%) | RRP
David Lynch's Dune is the brilliant but fatally flawed would-be epic feature film version of Frank Herbert's novel of the same name, the bestselling science fiction novel ever written. It is a complex but too heavily simplified version of a far more elaborate book, a darkly Gothic far future space opera revolving around an imperial, dynastic power struggle on the desert planet of Arrakis. With what was in 1984 an enormous $40 million budget, Lynch retained a surprising amount of the industrial/Victorian feel of his previous features, Eraserhead (1976) and The Elephant Man (1980), and was able to bring to the screen some of the most imaginative and awe-inspiring production designs, costumes and action then seen. Indeed, as a spectacularly atmospheric vision of the future Dune has as much to recommend it as the far more celebrated Blade Runner (1982), with which it even shares the female romantic lead, Sean Young--here just one star in a superb cast. The problem, which an unauthorised extended TV version failed to fix, is that Lynch's original vision of Dune was massively cut for length, and as such the final third is so rapidly paced as to undermine the superb first two thirds. A director's cut is sorely needed, the cinema version playing like a butchered masterpiece. Also available is an entirely unconnected four-and-a-half-hour mini-series, Frank Herbert's Dune (2000), which is less visionary but more coherent. On the DVD: The 2.35:1 image suffers from not being anamorphically enhanced. There are minor flecks of dirt and scratches, but generally the print used is in good condition although there is a considerable amount of grain in some scenes and the image could be more detailed. The packaging claims the sound is Dolby Digital 5.1, but it is actually three-channel sound (stereo plus centre speaker), with the main stereo feed being duplicated in the rear channels. A full 5.1 remastering would improve matters considerably. Special features consist of the original trailer and a pointless gallery of seven badly cropped stills. There is a very basic animated and scored menu using the portentous main theme music from the film. --Gary S Dalkin

Mulholland Drive | DVD | (09/09/2002)
from £3.99 | Saving you £12.09 (60.50%) | RRP
Pandora couldn't resist opening the forbidden box containing all the delusions of mankind, and let's just say in Mulholland Drive David Lynch indulges a similar impulse. Employing a familiar film noir atmosphere to unravel, as he coyly puts it, "a love story in the city of dreams", Lynch establishes a foreboding but playful narrative in the film's first half before subsuming all of Los Angeles and its corrupt ambitions into his voyeuristic universe of desire. Identities exchange, amnesia proliferates and nightmare visions are induced, but not before we've become enthralled by the film's two main characters: the dazed and sullen femme fatale, Rita (Laura Elena Harring), and the pert blonde just-arrived from Ontario (played exquisitely by Naomi Watts) who decides to help Rita regain her memory. Triggered by a rapturous Spanish-language version of Roy Orbison's "Crying", Lynch's best film since Blue Velvet splits glowingly into two equally compelling parts. --Fionn Meade

Early Murnau - Five Films (Schloß Vogelöd, Phantom, Der Letzte Mann, The Grand Duke's Finances, Tartuffe) (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (26/09/2016)
from £26.79 | Saving you £13.20 (33.00%) | RRP
One of the most influential and revered figures in all of cinema, Friedrich Wilheim Murnau came to prominence in the first half of the 1920's with a diverse string of productions ranging from buoyant satire to swirling psychological drama. Five key works are presented here: SchloÃ? VogelÃ¶d, Phantom, Die Finanzen des GroÃ?herzogs (the Grand Duke's Finances, Der Letzte Mann (The Last Laugh) and Tartuffe. In the sinister mystery SchloÃ? VogelÃ¶d, terrible secrets from the past threaten a group of aristocrats' gathering at a country manor. In the delirious Phantom, an aspiring poet's change encounter with a beautiful woman leads into obsession and deception. The delightful Die Finanzen des GroÃ?herzogs sees a rakish-but-impoverished duke setting out to rebuild his fortune via blissfully comic high adventure on the Mediterranean coast. In Der Letzte Mann, one of the undisputed masterpieces of the silent era, Emil Jannings gives an overwhelming performance as a hotel porter with dreams of a higher station in life, and was a stylistic breakthrough for both Murnau and cinema in general. Finally, the slyly satiric Tartuffe features Jannings as Moliere's iconic creation in a morality tale film-within-a-film as only Murnau could conceive. This collection features new high-definition transfers of all five films from the finest archival elements, all on Blu-ray for the first time in a special edition three-disc set.

Timbuktu Blu-ray | Blu Ray | (10/08/2015)
from £9.59 | Saving you £10.40 (52.00%) | RRP
Passionate, humanistic and enormously powerful, Mauritanian director Abderrahmane Sissako's Timbuktu was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards and screened in competition for the Palme d'Or at Cannes Film Festival 2014. Not far from Timbuktu, Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima, his daughter Toya, and Issan, their twelve-year-old shepherd. In town, the people struggle under a regime of terror imposed by invading Jihadists determined to control their faith and threaten their way of life. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even football have been banned and every day the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family are being spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu, but their destiny changes when Kidane runs foul of the foreign occupants and is confronted by their merciless new laws. Based on the forceful takeover of Mail in 2012, Timbuktu is at once searing and poetic; an extraordinary fable about the dangers of religious extremism that also conveys the rich cultural heritage of the Malian people.

A key work of German silent cinema and an international smash on its release, E. A. Dupont's VarietÃ© (Variety) is an audacious revenge melodrama set under the canvas of the big top. When Boss Huller (the iconic Emil Jannings) meets the young Ã©migrÃ© Berta-Marie (Lya De Putti), it kindles his desire to relaunch his career as a trapeze artist, stalled due to an injury and the pressures of domestic life. But with passion comes obsession, and with the involvement of the famed Artinelli into their act, tensions rise to a fever pitch.
