  • Howards End [DVD] [1992] Howards End | DVD | (27/11/2017) from £9.45  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Howards End is E M Forster's beautifully subtle story of the criss-crossing paths of the privileged and those they disdain--and of a remarkable pair of women who can see beyond class distinctions. Dramatic and tragic but also surprisingly funny, this James Ivory film focuses on a pair of unmarried sisters (Emma Thompson, who won an Oscar, and Helena Bonham Carter) who befriend a poor young clerk (Sam West) and, without meaning to, ruin his life. Meanwhile, Thompson also makes the acquaintance of a dying neighbour (Vanessa Redgrave), who leaves her a family home in her will--which her husband (Anthony Hopkins) destroys. But, ironically, he meets and falls in love with Thompson, even as their paths once more intersect with the increasingly miserable young clerk. Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's beautifully economical script also won an Oscar.--Marshall Fine

    AWARD-WINNING filmmaker DOME KARUKOSKI brings to screen the life and work of one of the most influential and celebrated figures of twentieth century gay culture. TOM OF FINLAND is the beautiful and thrilling true story of Finnish artist TOUKO LAAKSONEN and his journey to international success. Touko Laaksonen, a decorated officer, returns home after a harrowing and heroic experience serving his country in World War II, but life in Finland during peacetime proves equally distressing. He finds post-war Helsinki rampant with homophobic persecution, and men around him even being pressured to marry women and have children. Touko finds refuge in his liberating art, specialising in homoerotic drawings of muscular men, free of inhabitations. His work made famous by his signature ?Tom of Finland' became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the flames of a gay revolution.

  • Melville Boxset [Blu-ray] [2017] Melville Boxset | Blu Ray | (11/12/2017) from £49.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Jean-Pierre Melville (1917 1974) is one of the most revered French film directors of all time. Born in Paris during WW1, he was to become a member of the French resistance in the Second World War, an experience which he drew on in his later career as a film director, routinely plunging his characters into an underworld of secrecy and deception. The reluctant godfather of the French New Wave, Melville's highly individual style was influenced by the ideas of existentialism and surrealism, but arguably his greatest debt was to classical American cinema, the traditions of which he wove with inimitable style into his quintessentially French films. Hailed by many as the father of the French gangster movie, he was inspired by the classic film noirs of 1930s and 40s Hollywood, imbuing many his films with a sense of menace and impending peril, creating a sinister underworld to be traversed by his ubiquitous gun-toting hoodlums. This set contains six of his finest films, from his early bittersweet masterpiece, Bob Le Flambeur, to his final film, Un flic, his wonderfully fatalistic study of loss and deception; a fitting epitaph to one of the finest careers in contemporary cinema. Included Extras: LE DOULOS - NEW Interview with first assistant director Volker Schlondorff - 20 mins BOB LE FLAMBEUR - NEW retrospective documentary by the film critic Dominique Maillet - 20 mins LEON MORIN PRETRE - NEW Master class with Philippe Labro (friend and apprentice of Melville) + Rémy Grumbach (Melville's nephew) - 59 mins LE CERCLE ROUGE Interview with Le Cercle Rouge's first assistant director Bernard Stora 30mins Code Name Melville - 76mins) Interview with first assistant director Bernard Stora - 30mins Interview with novelist José Giovanni - 15mins Présentation by Ginette Vincendeau 21'30

  • Tom Of Finland [Blu-ray] Tom Of Finland | Blu Ray | (20/11/2017) from £14.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Finnish biographical drama directed by Dome Karukoski and starring Pekka Strang, Taisto Oksanen and Lauri Tilkanen. Touko Laaksonen (Strang), who would come to be known as Tom of Finland, serves in the Second World War and defends his homeland from invasion, becoming a decorated lieutenant in the process; this is not what he is remembered for however. Touko is homosexual and in the years after the war he encounters some of his old comrades again and forges a lifelong relationship with one of them, but he also suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and relies heavily on his sister for support. Touko is a skilled draughtsman and his homoerotic drawings gain him notoriety as part of an increasingly open gay community, despite the continued persecution of homosexuality in Finland and beyond. His art soon makes Tom of Finland a gay icon and a symbol for the emergent social movement for years to come.

  • The Slipper And The Rose (Blu-Ray) The Slipper And The Rose (Blu-Ray) | Blu Ray | (20/11/2017) from £13.30  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    You know the story: Cinderella rides in a magical pumpkin to the ball, enchants the prince and flees at midnight. He finds her slipper and tracks her down, and they live happily ever after. But wait! In The Slipper and the Rose, it turns out there's more to the life of a prince than being charming. The king prefers to choose the prince's wife, one of proper social station who would provide a strong political alliance to ward off the kingdom's enemies. That's one of the twists in this 1976 British take on the classic fairy tale, one of a long line of musical versions. The disgruntled prince, who's as much of a focal point here as the lady with the footwear, is played by Richard Chamberlain, during the years when he was taking on the classics and had not yet been crowned king of the TV mini-series. He displays a pleasant voice opposite Gemma Craven as Cinderella, and veteran character actor Michael Hordern as the king leads the supporting ensemble. Add lavish sets and lush scenery (partially filmed in Austria), humour, fun choreography, and an Oscar-nominated score full of charming songs by Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman (veterans of such Disney movies as Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book, and who also co-wrote the script with director Bryan Forbes), and you have a grand, engaging family musical. The 143-minute running time and dreamy, deliberate pace might test the patience of antsy viewers, but The Slipper and the Rose's legion of fans wouldn't have it any other way. --David Horiuchi, Amazon.com

  • The L-Shaped Room (Digitally Restored) [Blu-ray] [1962] The L-Shaped Room (Digitally Restored) | Blu Ray | (27/11/2017) from £13.30  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    The L-Shaped Room, adapted by writer-director Bryan Forbes from Lynne Reid Banks' novel, unfolds in a dank, depressing London boarding house. Leslie Caron plays Jane Fosset, a 27-year-old French woman, down on her luck, who takes a room. There are bugs in her mattress. The taps drip. The landlady ("the lovely Doris") is a drunken, malicious busybody. Forbes doesn't paint the English in a flattering light. They're covetous, eccentric and xenophobic. "I never close my door to the nigs," Doris tells Fosset, as if to prove that she is no racist. When Fosset reveals that she's pregnant and unmarried, everybody turns against her. The one real friend Fosset makes is Toby (Tom Bell), an impoverished would-be writer who lives in the room downstairs. She starts an affair with him, but for all his protestations to the contrary, he too turns out to be moralistic and conservative--he can't accept the idea that she is having another man's baby.Forbes' dialogue sometimes grates, the film risks running into a dead end (Fosset is stuck with nowhere to go and no prospects), but this is compelling fare all the same. Cameraman Douglas Slocombe (who went on to shoot Raiders of the Lost Ark) makes the boarding house seem as gloomy and oppressive as a Gothic mansion. Forbes doesn't sentimentalise at all. The London he portrays is nothing like the swinging, hedonistic city shown in later British movies of the 60s. --Geoffrey Macnab

    Berlin, the Romantic Era, Young poet Heinrich (Christian Friedel, White Ribbon) wishes to conquer the inevitability of death through love, yet is unable to convince his sceptical cousin Marie to join him in a suicide pact. It is whilst coming to terms with this refusal, ineffably distressed by his cousin's insensitivity to the depth of his feelings, that Heinrich meets Henriette (Birte Schnöink), the wife of a business acquaintance, Henrich's subsequent offer to the beguiling young woman at first holds scant appeal that is until Henriette discovers she is suffering from a terminal illness. Amour Fou is a romantic comedy based loosely on the suicide of the poet Henrich von Kleist in 1811.

    Donna Deitch's tender, ground-breaking debut, a landmark in queer cinema and a triumph of independent filmmaking The swooning and sensual first narrative feature by DONNA DEITCH, Desert Hearts was ground breaking upon its 1985 release: a love story about two women, made entirely independently, on a self-financed shoestring budget, by a woman. In the 1959-set film, an adaptation of a beloved novel by Jane Rule, straitlaced East Coast professor Vivian Bell (The Colour of Money's HELEN SHAVER) arrives in Reno to file for divorce but winds up catching the eye of someone new, the younger free spirit Cay (Manhunter's PATRICIA CHARBONNEAU), touching off a slow seduction that unfolds against a breath-taking desert landscape. With undeniable chemistry between its two leads, an evocative jukebox soundtrack, and vivid cinematography by ROBERT ELSWIT (Punch-Drunk Love), Desert Hearts beautifully exudes a sense of tender yearning and emotional candour. BONUS FEATURES DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES New, restored 4K digital transfer, supervised by cinematographer Robert Elswit, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Audio commentary from 2007 featuring director Donna Deitch New conversation between Deitch and actor Jane Lynch New conversation between Deitch, Elswit, and production designer Jeannine Oppewall about the film's visual style New interviews with actors Helen Shaver and Patricia Charbonneau Excerpt from Fiction and Other Truths: A Film About Jane Rule, a 1995 documentary about the author of Desert of the Heart, the 1964 novel on which the film is based PLUS: An essay by critic B.
