  • Moulin Rouge -- Two-Disc Set [2001] Moulin Rouge -- Two-Disc Set | DVD | (03/05/2004) from £4.39  |  Saving you £18.26 (79.40%)  |  RRP £22.99

    Watching Baz Luhrmann's award-winning Moulin Rouge is a lot like falling in love. It is total immersion cinema and while you're experiencing it ("watching" is too passive a word) you can't imagine that cinema could be for anything else. In the harsh, objective post-viewing daylight Lurhmann's gaudy spectacular might seem like a triumph of glossy style over any genuine substance, but as the film unfolds Lurhmann subjects his audience to a such a barrage of overtly stylised music, dance, colour, design and human passion that the senses are overwhelmed and critical faculties put on hold for the duration. The story is paper-thin, but that's hardly the point. Nicole Kidman's courtesan Satine falls for poor poet Ewan McGregor while pledged to a psychotic English Duke. The show goes on, of course, and we know it will end in tragedy--because that's the sort of story this is, and the only thing that makes it bearable is the knowledge that it's all just brilliant artifice. The third of Luhrman's "Red Curtain" trilogy (after Strictly Ballroom and Romeo + Juliet), Moulin Rouge reinvents musical cinema, acknowledging its debt to past masters like Vincente Minnelli (Gigi) and Michael Powell (The Red Shoes), but taking in the best of rock video along the way. The incessant MTV-style editing might seem like a distraction, but in the end a film insane enough to include Jim Broadbent's cover of "Like a Virgin" defines its own genre rules. On the DVD: this double-disc package sets new standards of presentation while also having an ideally appropriate light-heartedness. The extra features are as inventive in their use of the format as the film itself. Highlights include not one but two commentaries--one by Luhrmann, his designer and his cinematographer, the other with Lurhmann and his fellow scriptwriter Craig Pearce. We get two videos of "Lady Marmalade" and there are also uncut dance numbers, for example the fabulously dark Tango sequence in all its detail, which come with alternate camera angles so that you can edit your own version. There are whole segments on the glittery costumes, the three-dimensional model of Paris and the transformation of Kylie Minogue into the Green Fairy of absinthe. The film is presented in anamorphic widescreen (formatted for 16:9 TVs) with a visual aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and has lush, velvety Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 sound options. --Roz Kaveney

  • The Phantom of the Opera (3 - Disc Dual Format Edition) [DVD] The Phantom of the Opera (3 - Disc Dual Format Edition) | DVD | (02/12/2013) from £8.29  |  Saving you £14.70 (63.90%)  |  RRP £22.99

    BFI Video proudly presents this definitive three-disc Dual Format Edition of this celebrated classics of silent film and horror cinema. Lon Chaney ‘the man of a thousand faces’ gives his most famous performance in this first version of the oft-filmed tale. Based on Gaston Leroux’s novel Chaney stars as the ‘Phantom’ living in the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera who falls in love with the voice of a young opera singer. Infatuated he kidnaps her dragging her to the depths below where she will sing only for him. Directed by Rupert Julian this lavish 1925 production launched the Hollywood Gothic style – which would become the trademark of Universal horror films. Original prints of the film were fully tinted with some sequences in Technicolor and a rooftop scene using a special process that enabled the Phantom's cloak to show red against the blue night sky. This Photoplay restoration carefully re-instates all these effects and is accompanied by Carl Davis’ celebrated score which draws heavily on Gounod's Faust which is the opera being performed in the film. Contents: Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition Newly restored presentation of the tinted and toned 1929 version with Carl Davis score High Definition presentation of the 1925 version with newly-commissioned piano accompaniment Original trailers for the 1925 and 1929 versions The ‘Man with the Lantern’ sequence Sequences from the sound version Lon Chaney: A Thousand Faces (2000 Kevin Brownlow 86 mins DVD only): Kevin Brownlow’s definitive documentary Fully illustrated booklet with essays film notes and credits

  • Gigi [1958] Gigi | DVD | (02/06/2003) from £9.99  |  Saving you £-5.99 (-42.80%)  |  RRP £13.99

    Gigi, Vincente Minnelli's 1958 adaptation of Colette's story about a girl (Leslie Caron) groomed as a courtesan but desired as a wife by a Parisian playboy (Louis Jordan), won a lot of Oscars, but it also has the unusual distinction of being an MGM musical shot on location in the City of Lights. What a musical it is (by Lerner and Loewe): Maurice Chevalier and Hermione Gingold crooning "Ah, Yes, I Remember It Well", plus the songs "Thank Heaven for Little Girls", "Gigi", "I'm a Bore", and "She's Not Thinking of Me". Director Minnelli makes a sumptuous, dreamy, almost laid-back affair of it all and the indispensable cast is forever etched into memory. Hollywood's long-running infatuation with continental grace and manners, the memory of a much earlier time imported to American movies through such immigrant directors as Ernst Lubitsch, may have finally come to a gentle end with this film. --Tom Keogh

  • West Side Story [Blu-ray] [1961] West Side Story | Blu Ray | (17/10/2011) from £8.95  |  Saving you £6.90 (43.20%)  |  RRP £15.99

    The winner of 10 Academy Awards, this 1961 musical by choreographer Jerome Robbins and director Robert Wise (The Sound of Music) remains irresistible. Based on a smash Broadway play updating Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to the 1950s era of juvenile delinquency, West Side Story stars Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer as the star-crossed lovers from different neighbourhoods--and ethnicities. The film's real selling points, however, are the highly charged and inventive song-and-dance numbers, the passionate ballads, the moody sets, colourful support from Rita Moreno, and the sheer accomplishment of Hollywood talent and technology producing a film so stirring. Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim wrote the score. --Tom Keogh

  • A Star Is Born - 2 Disc Special Edition [1954] A Star Is Born - 2 Disc Special Edition | DVD | (10/02/2003) from £4.39  |  Saving you £9.60 (68.60%)  |  RRP £13.99

    A musical remake of the classic 1937 film of the same name, A Star is Born was designed as Judy Garland's comeback vehicle after she had been cruelly axed by MGM studios for professional unreliability. Her erratic moods caused serious production delays this time around, too, but the behind-the-scenes turmoil was certainly worth it--Garland gives just about the greatest one-woman show in movie history. The story is the stuff of pure Hollywood legend. Aspiring actress-singer Esther Blodgett meets fading matinee idol Norman Maine (James Mason), who navigates her to stardom under the more melodious handle of Vickie Lester. As she rises meteorically, he declines into alcoholic self-pity--and the result, if you haven't guessed, is plenty of heartbreak. Mason lends subtle support in a role Cary Grant refused as too downbeat for his image, but Garland grabs centre stage with an all-out emotional performance that rivets the attention. Director George Cukor was famous for coaxing the very best out of screen divas, and A Star is Born must be counted as his crowning achievement. The lush visual style that he contributes provides a suitable setting for Garland's deep, rich voice--throbbing with melancholy in the Harold Arlen-Ira Gershwin ballad "The Man That Got Away", then capering joyfully in the gargantuan musical number "Born in a Trunk". Moss Hart's script takes many cynical swipes at the pretensions of Tinsel Town--perhaps too many for the taste of studio boss Jack Warner, who ordered drastic cuts in the film after its premiere. --Peter Matthews
