    As William Randolph Hearst and his lover actress Marion Davies set sail from San Pedro Harbour early one Saturday morning hosting a small group that includes the brilliant but self-absorbed Charlie Chaplin film pioneer Thomas Ince and ambitious novelist Elinor Glyn it quickly becomes clear that although witty repartee is the order of the day deceit and deception are also on the menu... From award-winning screenwriter Steven Peros and acclaimed director Peter Bogdanovich comes

  • Velvet Goldmine [1998] Velvet Goldmine | DVD | (07/06/2004) from £5.90  |  Saving you £0.09 (1.50%)  |  RRP £5.99

    Somewhat misleadingly described by many as a mock-biopic based on the life of David Bowie, Velvet Goldmine is so much more than that. Journalist Arthur Stuart (Christian Bale) who sets out to discover whatever happened to Ziggy Stardust-like Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers), the famous bisexual glam star who crashed and burned spectacularly, but in the process helped Arthur awaken his own sexuality. It's an insane homage to 1970s glam rock in the UK as only American, who knew the movement from a distance, would make; it's a tribute to film director Nicolas Roeg's best work, particularly Performance and the Bowie-vehicle The Man Who Fell to Earth; it's a sci-fi movie about an alternative reality (the film's "present" is a 1984 that never existed and frustratingly never clearly explained); it's a queer Citizen Kane with lashings of eye-glitter, a complete mess, an absolute delight and a chance to see Ewan McGregor naked in case you didn't catch him in The Pillow Book as the Iggy Pop-like Curt Wild, Slade's lover/protégé.Director Todd Haynes, who made the incredibly spare Safe and a biopic about Karen Carpenter with Barbie dolls, crams in everything--including the kitchen sink, all the washing-up and half the larder--as if terrified he'll never get another chance to shoot even a commercial again. The pacing drags like catwalk-queen's glittery taffeta train at times, but then glorious swooping musical numbers and clever bits of allusive business arrive that will brighten the day of many a pop-fan and film-buff. Never anything less than ruthlessly inventive and demanding of patience and an open mind, it's one for connoisseurs. Viewers who prefer easy-viewing eye candy are well advised to stick with fluff like Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. --Leslie Felperin

  • The Criminal [2001] [2000] The Criminal | DVD | (08/10/2001) from £5.37  |  Saving you £14.62 (73.10%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Despite being overshadowed by the welter of inferior, identikit cockney gangster movies, The Criminal is an invigorating and sophisticated crime thriller; deftly handling its theme of conspiracy, tinged with subtle comic moments, yet rife with tension and paranoia. In an assured performance of complexity, Steven Mackintosh plays J, a musician whose chance meeting with a beautiful blonde (Natasha Little in perfect femme-fatale form) brings some adventure in to his uneventful life. When she is brutally murdered, the unsuspecting and confused J is thrust in to a nightmare of corruption and conspiracy, doggedly pursued by two police officers (the superbly foul-mouthed Bernard Hill and Holly Aird) as well as a shadowy criminal elite (watch for a wonderful cameo from comedian Eddie Izzard as a shady informant). A thoroughly impressive debut from director Julian Simpson, the film maintains an uneasy, claustrophobic atmosphere, bolstered by Simpson's ear for decent dialogue (particularly the innovative opening), storytelling prowess and visual flair. Fresh, imaginative and enthralling, The Criminal is a gem waiting to be discovered and a perfect antidote to lazy gangster cash-ins. On The DVD: director Simpson offers an informative and chatty commentary that provides excellent insight into how such a visually stylish film was made so economically. The cast and crew also offer interview soundbites, as well as biographies and a trailer. --Danny Graydon

But amongst the chaos criminality and drug taking Danny finds friendship - he and his fellow comrades are a band of cutthroats slaving on the pirate ship. Into this mixing bowl are placed a variety of colourful yet shady characters; there's Danny's Probation Officer exorting all kinds of favours the sadistic sous-chef McQuilip who either hates or fancies Danny and the new arrival in the kitchen Kirsty who increases the temperature of all the assembled males. Increasingly desperate for his job Danny takes a bet with the flash barman to have sex with a customer before his shift is over - the customer turns out to be his Probation Officer's wife who neatly turns their encounter into a blackmail and murder opportunity... That's when Nick has a near fatal heart attack whilst the restaurant critics are in attendance... and the fun really begins...

  • The Cat's Meow [DVD] The Cat's Meow | DVD | (02/11/2015) from £6.99  |  Saving you £3.00 (30.00%)  |  RRP £9.99

    A Hollywood scandal springs to life in Peter Bogdanovich's lively Cat's Meow. In 1924 the immensely powerful publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst held a yacht party that ended with a gunshot. Between Hearst's influence and that of his glitterati guests (including Louella Parsons and Charlie Chaplin), no satisfying account of what happened ever made it to the public. The Cat's Meow reconstructs one of the more whispered-about possible scenarios and has quite a bit of fun doing so. Cast and crew alike skewer 1920s Hollywood decadence and, by extension, today's. Eddie Izzard is a boldly odd casting choice as Chaplin, but he succeeds, refusing to fall back on Little Tramp mannerisms. There are several other good performances, but best of all is the cool-as-sherbet Joanna Lumley as the deliciously jaded Elinor Glyn. The script is a strong one, never stooping to the excesses of its characters--Bogdanovich's take is far from the most lurid allegations of what happened that weekend. --Ali Davis
