My Learned Friend | DVD | (27/04/2009)
from £11.59 | Saving you £4.40 (27.50%) | RRP
Will Hay (Dandy Dick The Goose Steps Out) plays a disbarred solicitor who with the help of Claude (Claude Hulbert) embarks on a frantic chase in pursuit of a psychopathic murderer newly released from prison. The prisoner is working through a vengeance list with Claude's name near the top... Directed by Basil Dearden and Will Hay My Learned Friend offers a fascinating insight into the direction Will Hay might have taken if ill health had not caused this Ealing picture to be his last. The tone is much darker than his previous films and the humour much of it revolving around a sequence of grisly murders foreshadows the blackest of Ealing's post-war comedies such as Kind Hearts and Coronets.

The Exorcist - 40th Anniversary Edition | Blu Ray | (20/10/2014)
from £9.99 | Saving you £15.00 (60.00%) | RRP
Director William Friedkin was a hot ticket in Hollywood after the success of The French Connection, and he turned heads (in more ways than one) when he decided to make The Exorcist as his follow-up film. Adapted by William Peter Blatty from his controversial best-seller, this shocking 1973 thriller set an intense and often-copied milestone for screen terror with its unflinching depiction of a young girl (Linda Blair) who is possessed by an evil spirit. Jason Miller and Max von Sydow are perfectly cast as the priests who risk their sanity and their lives to administer the rites of demonic exorcism, and Ellen Burstyn plays Blair's mother, who can only stand by in horror as her daughter's body is wracked by satanic disfiguration. One of the most frightening films ever made, The Exorcist was mysteriously plagued by troubles during production, and the years have not diminished its capacity to disturb even the most stoical viewers. --Jeff Shannon

Frau Im Mond (Masters of Cinema) (DUAL FORMAT Edition) | Blu Ray | (25/08/2014)
from £10.29 | Saving you £9.70 (48.50%) | RRP
Frau im Mond. [Woman in the Moon.] is: The first feature-length film to portray space-exploration in a serious manner paying close attention to the science involved in launching a vessel from the surface of the earth to the valleys of the moon. A tri-polar potboiler of a picture that manages to combine espionage tale serial melodrama and comic-book sci-fi into a storyline that is by turns delirious hushed and deranged. A movie so rife with narrative contradiction and visual ingenuity that it could only be the work of one filmmaker: Fritz Lang. In this Lang's final silent epic the legendary filmmaker spins a tale involving a wicked cartel of spies who co-opt an experimental mission to the moon in the hope of plundering the satellite's vast (and highly theoretical) stores of gold. When the crew helmed by Willy Fritsch and Gerda Maurus (both of whom had previously starred in Lang's Spione) finally reach their impossible destination they find themselves stranded in a lunar labyrinth without walls - where emotions run scattershot and the new goal becomes survival. A modern Daedalus tale which uncannily foretold Germany's wartime push into rocket-science Frau im Mond. Is as much a warning sign against human hubris as it is a hopeful depiction of mankind's potential. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present in a Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) special edition the culmination of Fritz Lang's silent cinema restored to its near-original length. Special Features: Gorgeous 1080p transfer on the Blu-ray of the F. W. Murnau-Stiftung restoration Original German intertitles with newly translated optional English subtitles The First Scientific Science-Fiction Film - a German documentary about Frau im Mond. Made by Gabriele Jacobi [15:00] 36-page booklet which includes a newly revised analysis by Michael E. Grost on the film and on Fritz Lang's body of work as a whole

The Tragedy of Macbeth | Blu Ray | (18/04/2016)

Roman Polanski imbues his unflinchingly violent adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy of ruthless ambition and murder in medieval Scotland with grit and dramatic intensity. Jon Finch and Francesca Annis give performances charged with fury and sex appeal as a decorated warrior rising through the ranks and his driven wife, scheming together to take the throne by any means. Co-adapted by Polanski and the great theatre critic and dramaturge Kenneth Tynan, and shot against a series of stunning, stark British Isle landscapes, this version of Macbeth is among the most atmospheric and authentic of all Shakespeare films.

There is not a single joke, sight-gag or one-liner in Monty Python's Life of Brian that will not forever burn itself into the viewer's memory as being just as funny as it is possible to be, but--extraordinarily--almost every indestructibly hilarious scene also serves a dual purpose, making this one of the most consistently sustained film satires ever made. Like all great satire, the Pythons not only attack and vilify their targets (the bigotry and hypocrisy of organised religion and politics) supremely well, they also propose an alternative: be an individual, think for yourself, don't be led by others. "You've all got to work it out for yourselves", cries Brian in a key moment. "Yes, we've all got to work it our for ourselves", the crowd reply en masse. Two thousand years later, in a world still blighted by religious zealots, Brian's is still a lone voice crying in the wilderness. Aside from being a neat spoof on the Hollywood epic, it's also almost incidentally one of the most realistic on-screen depictions of the ancient world--instead of treating their characters as posturing historical stereotypes, the Pythons realised what no sword 'n' sandal epic ever has: that people are all the same, no matter what period of history they live in. People always have and always will bicker, lie, cheat, swear, conceal cowardice with bravado (like Reg, leader of the People's Front of Judea), abuse power (like Pontius Pilate), blindly follow the latest fads and giggle at silly things ("Biggus Dickus"). In the end, Life of Brian teaches us that the only way for a despairing individual to cope in a world of idiocy and hypocrisy is to always look on the bright side of life. On the DVD: Life of Brian returns to Region 2 DVD in a decent widescreen anamorphic print with Dolby 5.1 sound--neither are exactly revelatory, but at least it's an improvement on the previous release, which was, shockingly, pan & scan. The 50-minute BBC documentary, "The Pythons", was filmed mainly on location in 1979 and isn't especially remarkable or insightful (a new retrospective would have been appreciated). There are trailers for this movie, as well as Holy Grail plus three other non-Python movies. There's no commentary track, sadly. --Mark Walker
