  • Spun [2003] Spun | DVD | (05/04/2004) from £5.59  |  Saving you £14.40 (72.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Spun is an unclassifiable ensemble piece, intentionally bleached of soulfulness and high on visual invention and comic depravity. Set in northern Los Angeles, where meth freaks lurch from one motel room to another in search of companionship and a score, the film stars Jason Schwartzman as Ross, whose life is rapidly disintegrating. Fielding phone messages from his mother and trying in vain to reach an old girlfriend, Ross spends most of his time on a feverish circuit with the half-mad Cookie (Mena Suvari) and Nikki (Brittany Murphy), the dangerously paranoid Spider Mike (John Leguizamo), and a macho drugmaker called the Cook (Mickey Rourke). Director Jonas Akerlund's story is non-existent, but then again Spun is driven by the blurry, hellish energy of a life lived on speed. An obvious influence is Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream, but Akerlund is interested in nightmarish set pieces than tiny horrors of misfired nerve endings and ravaged time. --Tom Keogh

  • Series 7 - The Contenders [2001] Series 7 - The Contenders | DVD | (14/04/2003) from £7.87  |  Saving you £2.12 (21.20%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Series 7: The Contenders takes a look into the formula that has recently topped television polls; the reality game show. Modern culture has come so close to fulfilling the prophecies of films like Rollerball, Death Race 2000 and The Running Man that this rerun of the future game show plot is mounted as a satire rather than a prophecy, with an aesthetic drawn from American reality-TV shows like Cops or Survivor. In a society where the media and the authorities have absolute power, contestants in "Series 7" of The Contenders are chosen by lottery--six players must compete to kill each other, with the survivor/winner competing in the next series. Current champion Dawn (Brooke Smith)--who is heavily-pregnant--returns to her home town and finds herself pitted against a terrifying Christian nurse, a desperately unemployed man, an embittered old timer, a tough-talking teenage girl and a terminally-ill artist. Writer-director Daniel Minahan stages credibly ragged action sequences (with the camera crew jogging to keep up and sometimes getting in the way), clever performances that hint at complexities the show tries to tidy away (especially from the underrated Smith), chilly or funny interview segments, and deep black satire ("reconstructions" are used for sequences the cameras missed or, crucially, where the show's makers want to cover up part of the story they don't want tell). These techniques skewer exactly the way real lives are transformed into soaps by contrived "reality TV" shows. --Kim Newman

  • Sexy Beast [2001] Sexy Beast | DVD | (13/01/2003) from £4.10  |  Saving you £3.83 (38.30%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Fed up with the seemingly endless succession of Brit gangster flicks? Or just wish that someone would reinvent the genre? Either way, Sexy Beast is for you. While reintroducing some of the well-worn characters of recent years, the film at least attempts to take a sideways look at the genre. Centred on the lives of two ex-con ex-pats and their new lives in Spain, the story is one concerning the conflict between the past and the present. Ray Winston is Gel, who, enjoying his life of early retirement in the sun, finds his loyalties called into question when asked to return to Britain to take part in an audacious heist. There's not much else to say plot wise, but the script and cast is so strong that the film gets away with it. Eschewing the younger brat pack in favour of the likes of Winston, Ian McShane, Amanda Redman (sadly under-used) and Ben Kingsley (whose ultra foul-mouthed Don steals every scene) gives the film a calm authority. Quite violent--although more in language than action--but not without its moments of brilliant humour, Sexy Beast is an intelligent, enthralling and welcome addition to the gangster-film genre. --Phil Udell

  • Go [1999] Go | DVD | (06/03/2000) from £2.98  |  Saving you £1.26 (21.00%)  |  RRP £5.99

    Director Doug Liman's follow-up to the winning Swingers is a rollicking adventure that, while lacking in any substantial plot, speeds along with non-stop adrenaline and style to burn. Taking a cue from Pulp Fiction, Liman plays tricks with time and overlapping plots, all of which play out in L.A. and Las Vegas in a 24-hour period sometime between Christmas and New Year's. Slacker grocery-store clerk Ronna (Sarah Polley) is trying to score rent money by selling hits of Ecstasy at a rave party, but winds up inadvertently double-crossing a ruthless dealer (sexy and scary Timothy Olyphant). She's also invading the dealing turf of her coworker Simon (Desmond Askew), a Brit on his first trip to Vegas, which turns nightmarish after a jaunt with pal Marcus (Taye Diggs) to a "gentleman's club" turns violent. And then there's the two soap-opera actors (Jay Mohr and Scott Wolf) who cross paths with Ronna more than once in their attempts to divest themselves of a drug-related charge by participating in a sting. The way Liman and writer John August layer these stories owes a huge debt to Quentin Tarantino, but the comedy and action sequences rocket like a bat out of hell with energy, humour, and genuine surprise. In addition to some hilarious dialogue exchanges--including a classic scene between Ronna's stoned friend (Nathan Bexton) and a Zen cat--Liman works wonders with one the most winning ensembles in recent memory, a cast that includes both established actors and TV cuties. Mohr, Diggs, and especially Polley (doing a 180 from her turn in The Sweet Hereafter) are as excellent as you'd expect, but it's Wolf (of Party of Five) and Dawson's Creek's Katie Holmes (as Polley's best bud) who turn in revelatory work; Holmes especially seems poised to be a breakout star. An amazing cinematic ride--like a roller coaster, you'll want to go back again and again. --Mark Englehart

  • Nurse Betty [2000] Nurse Betty | DVD | (03/09/2001) from £2.93  |  Saving you £7.61 (58.60%)  |  RRP £12.99

    A frenzied, screwball comedy with a lighter-than-light touch, Nurse Betty is a radical departure for director Neil LaBute, who helmed the vitriolic In the Company of Men and Your Friends and Neighbours. Betty (Renée Zellweger) is a perky Kansas waitress whose sole happiness comes from her obsession with the television soap A Reason to Love, starring dreamboat doctor David Ravell (Greg Kinnear). When her slimy car-dealer husband (Aaron Eckhart) enters into a drug transaction that goes horribly awry, Betty inadvertently witnesses the carnage and, in shock, becomes Nurse Betty, determined to reunite with her long-lost love, Dr Ravell. Tailed by two hit men (Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock), Betty heads to LA a determined woman, unaware she has their huge drug stash in tow. Though it takes a good half-hour to get going, once LaBute and the film hit top speed, it's a surreal, often brilliant ride, as Betty's fantasy and reality collide, with unexpected (really unexpected) developments. The screenplay (by John C Richards and James Flamberg) is wickedly inventive and like his previous films, LaBute has assembled a peerless cast. Zellweger is charming and daffy in her best performance since Jerry Maguire and Freeman is by turns menacing and touchingly romantic in his obsession with Betty. Kinnear is the epitome of self-serving shallowness (and makes us love him all the more for it) and Rock finally shakes his stand-up persona and emerges as a great comic actor. Look also for a scene-stealing Allison Janney as the producer of Kinnear's soap. Most films rarely get such talent operating at full capacity and Nurse Betty soars because of it. --Mark Englehart, Amazon.com

  • I Know How Many Runs You Scored Last Summer I Know How Many Runs You Scored Last Summer | DVD | (29/06/2009) from £2.34  |  Saving you £10.65 (82.00%)  |  RRP £12.99

  • Bruno [Blu-ray] [2009] Bruno | Blu Ray | (09/11/2009) from £2.43  |  Saving you £20.01 (80.10%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Sacha Baron Cohen and 'Borat' director Larry Charles reunite to bring the brilliantly tasteless exploits of Bruno to the big screen! When Europe turns its back on Bruno he crosses the ocean to find fame in the US but how will the American public take to the outrageous Austrian? Very badly! When clueless homosexual fashionista Bruno the presenter of Funkyzeit (the most popular fashion programme in every German-speaking country apart from Germany) is effectively banned from Europe following a disastrous incident at a show he sets his sights on America. With his former assistant's assistant Lutz as his only ally the fashionmonger tries to conquer the US as only he knows how - as tastelessly as possible! Will Bruno achieve the fame he so desperately craves? Play Review Borat helmer Larry Charles (director/executive producer on Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm) returns to direct fearless comedy assassin Sacha Baron Cohen (Talladega Nights) in Bruno - a socio-political satire about the American cult of celebrity fashion and the treatment of homosexuals. The third of Baron Cohen's comic creations to make a cinematic bow following Ali G Indahouse: The Movie and Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan the flamboyantly homosexual clueless Austrian fashion guru is even more extreme and provocative. So how does he translate to the big screen? Mixing staged scenes with real-life footage Bruno is a mockumentary that pulls no punches. From Bruno's unsuccessful stint on NBC's Medium to an appearance on The Richard Bey Show - where he reveals to an African American audience that he swapped an iPod for his black baby OJ - the film keeps on pushing the line further and further. Exposing narrow-minded homophobia through humour in much the same way as Borat tackled racism it's hard not to watch certain scenes without cringing or sometimes fearing for Baron Cohen's life - the denouement at Straight Dave's Man Slammin' Maxout in Fort Smith Arkansas provokes a near riot! It's a damn funny movie revelling in absurdity confrontation and reaction. Would any other comedian attempt to seduce a former presidential candidate or encounter the homophobic religious group Westboro Baptist Church whilst trapped in a bondage mechanism with another man? Bruno is arguably even funnier than Borat and its satirical elements are certainly stronger and even more provocative. The last of his televised characters to switch to the big screen what now for Baron Cohen? Is he now too recognisable to get away with this style of mockumentary? Personally we'd love to see what Bruno and Lutz did next or even a Borat sequel but maybe it's time for the comedian to step out from behind his celebrated comic guises and tackle something new? If he can top Bruno then we'd definitely like to see it!

  • Pulp Fiction [1994] Pulp Fiction | DVD | (08/01/2001) from £3.85  |  Saving you £17.61 (76.60%)  |  RRP £22.99

    With the knockout one-two punch of 1992's Reservoir Dogs and 1994's Pulp Fiction writer-director Quentin Tarantino stunned the filmmaking world, exploding into prominence as a cinematic heavyweight contender. But Pulp Fiction was more than just the follow-up to an impressive first feature, or the winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes Film Festival, or a script stuffed with the sort of juicy bubblegum dialogue actors just love to chew, or the vehicle that re-established John Travolta on the A-list, or the relatively low-budget ($8 million) independent showcase for an ultrahip mixture of established marquee names and rising stars from the indie scene (among them Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Julia Sweeney, Kathy Griffin and Phil Lamar). It was more, even, than an unprecedented $100-million-plus hit for indie distributor Miramax. Pulp Fiction was a sensation. No, it was not the Second Coming (I actually think Reservoir Dogs is a more substantial film; and PT Anderson outdid Tarantino in 1997 by making his directorial debut with two even more mature and accomplished pictures, Hard Eight and Boogie Nights). But Pulp Fiction packs so much energy and invention into telling its nonchronologically interwoven short stories (all about temptation, corruption, and redemption amongst modern criminals, large and small) it leaves viewers both exhilarated and exhausted--hearts racing and knuckles white from the ride. (Oh, and the infectious, surf-guitar-based soundtrack is tastier than a Royale with Cheese.) --Jim Emerson

  • Holy Smoke [2000] Holy Smoke | DVD | (29/04/2002) from £4.95  |  Saving you £4.60 (46.00%)  |  RRP £9.99

    New Zealand film director Jane Campion is one of a kind. Forget money and fame; she's inspired by the pleasure of sharing her cinematic dreams with friends and film audiences. Her globetrotting heroines (in such films as Angel at My Table, The Piano, The Portrait of a Lady) may be wilful, crazed, self-absorbed, wrong--but who can resist joining these passionate women on their voyages of self-discovery, whether they lead to safe harbour or a dead end? Holy Smoke opens deliriously in a magical India, saturated with light, colour, sensuality. Celebrated by Neil Diamond's opening anthem, "Holly Holy", Ruth Baron (Kate Winslet, delivering a breathtakingly luminous performance) explores a world that encourages spiritual epiphany--and falls hard for the cartoonish guru who opens her "third eye". Back home in Australia, her hilariously dysfunctional, distinctly down-to-earth family hires hotshot deprogrammer PJ Waters (Harvey Keitel, his dyed hair and cowboy boots telegraphing desperate machismo) to cure Ruth. In an isolated Outback shack, the two of them wrestle each other for control of their souls--and bodies, too. This duel's in deadly earnest: Ruth assaults Waters's petrified masculinity; PJ aims to strip this radiant girl of her unexamined faith. Their wild ride--funny, brutal, erotic--towards brand-new selfhood is punctuated by indelible images: Ruth dancing in a white sari beside an emu corral; naked in the night, Ruth offering her lush body to her tormentor; lost in the desert, cross-dressed in red gown, PJ "saved" by a golden vision of Ruth as a magnificent Indian goddess. For those who love the way movies can sometimes project truth and beauty, Holy Smoke is a feast for the eyes and mind. --Kathleen Murphy, Amazon.com On the DVD: Holy Smoke sees good overall quality of the 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer, with the graininess coming from the film rather than the transfer. The soundtrack (which is mostly populated with Neil Diamond tracks) is rich, but what really raises this DVD above mediocrity though (and it had to be something seeing as it is woefully short of extras) is the commentary track. Winslet and cowriter Anna Campion (Jane's sister) are given free reign to talk about their experiences of filming Holy Smoke as well as their thoughts on India, cults and nudity. The result is always interesting, often entertaining and fans of Winslet will fall in love with the graceful star all over again. --Kristen Bowditch

  • Cecil B Demented [2000] Cecil B Demented | DVD | (10/09/2001) from £6.71  |  Saving you £11.91 (59.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

    They say that the best comedy always has a point to make. John Waters' Cecil B Demented is certainly no exception. Using the director's unique brand of melodramatic kitsch comedy the film offers an exposé of popular Hollywood cinema. The Sprocket Holes are a gang of underground cinema anarchists with a life or death goal to destroy Hollywood--"Power to the people who punish bad cinema" cries their leader and director Cecil B Demented (superbly played by Stephen Dorff who appears to have been taking lessons at the Gary Oldman school of acting). After kidnapping Honey Whitlock (Melanie Griffith) to appear in their underground guerrilla film they return to their hideout--an old movie theatre--to begin the dramatic make-over of Honey from Hollywood prima donna to underground cinema queen. Exposing the realms of media manipulation--it's amazing what a little anarchy can do to help your cause--the Sprocket Holes gain notoriety and a fan base from their violent actions. Although Waters seems ill at ease with choreographing violence, the farcical nature of these aggressive scenes adds another level of humour to his exploration of the divide between mainstream and underground cinema. The director could have done more to explore the fickle nature of the movie starlet, however, and the opening scenes with Honey Whitlock as a superficial two-faced star are bland: Griffith is perhaps not made for the part of a Hollywood bitch. Easier to stomach than Pink Flamingos, like Serial Mom before it Cecil B Demented will appeal to a wider audience, who perhaps will come away believing that Forrest Gump is not a cinematic masterpiece after all. On the DVD: The menu is probably the most notable feature of the disc, with a nodding-dog Cecil B Demented and a crazy rodent popping up everywhere it fits perfectly with the Waters style of humour. The special features simply consist of a bland trailer and some mundane interviews with the main cast and crew, which offer little towards appreciating the humour of the movie. With a 5.1 Dolby digital audio track and widescreen ratio the disc at least offers a high standard of viewing pleasure, no budget spared. --Nikki Disney

  • Beautiful Creatures [2001] Beautiful Creatures | DVD | (10/04/2003) from £3.68  |  Saving you £12.28 (76.80%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Firmly in the spirit of the late 90s wave of British crime films, Beautiful Creatures stars Rachel Weisz and Susan Lynch as two young Glasgow women united against their brutally abusive boyfriends. With a corpse in the bathroom, a golf bag with a secret and seedy detective on their trail Dorothy (Lynch) and Petula (Weisz) hatch an ill-conceived fake kidnapping as their passport from an impossible situation. The film is an entertaining 84 minutes, but though there are several suspense scenes and some queasily amusing black comedy the TV style direction and generic plot fail to deliver any originality. First time feature director Bill Eagles concentrates on winning strong performances from an excellent cast and referencing The Wizard of Oz (1939) (Dorothy has a dog called Pluto, rather than Toto), Wild at Heart (2000) (watch Pluto and those fingers). Added to these are references to Thelma and Louise (1991), Shallow Grave (1994), Butterfly Kiss (1995), Bound (1996), and the film its title echoes, Heavenly Creatures (1994). Considering the graphic violence against women this would have been a stronger, more honest film had it taken itself seriously. As it is, the fashionable yet often inappropriate humour prevents Beautiful Creatures making any serious point about women's reaction to male violence, the finale degenerating into routine feel-good exploitation. On the DVD: This is a bare-bones release with brief on-screen production notes, cast and crew credits, a page about Universal's DVD email newsletter and a static menu. The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound locks most of the audio to the centre speaker, though there's plenty of dog-barking all around the room. The anamorphically enhanced 1.77-1 transfer clearly cuts off part of the original image at both sides of the screen and is often, especially in the many night scenes, far grainier than one would expect from a feature film released in the year 2000. --Gary S Dalkin
