    In 1929 F. W. Murnau (Nosferatu Faust Sunrise) one of the greatest of all film directors invited leading documentarist Robert Flaherty (Nanook of the North Man of Aran) to collaborate on a film to be be shot on location in Tahiti a Polynesian idyll in which Murnau imagined a cast of island actors would provide a new form of authentic drama and offer rare insight into their primitive culture. The result of their collaboration was Tabu a film that depicts the details of indigenous island life to tell a mythical tale that is rich in the universal themes of desire and loss. Subtitled A Story of the South Seas Tabu concerns a Tahitian fisherman (played by an islander Matahi) and his love for a young woman (played by fellow islander Reri who went on to star on Broadway) whose body has been consecrated to the gods rendering her tabu as far as mortal men are concerned.

  • NAKED ISLAND, The (Masters of Cinema) (BLU-RAY) NAKED ISLAND, The (Masters of Cinema) (BLU-RAY) | Blu Ray | (24/06/2013) from £10.99  |  Saving you £9.00 (45.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Filmed on the virtually deserted Setonaikai archipelago in south-west Japan The Naked Island [Hadaka no shima] was made - in the words of its director - as a 'cinematic poem' to try and capture the life of human beings struggling like ants against the forces of nature. Kaneto Shindô (Onibaba Kuroneko) made the film with his own production company Kindaï Eiga Kyôkai who were facing financial ruin at the time. Using one-tenth of the average budget Shindô took one last impassioned risk to make this film. With his small crew they relocated to an inn on the island of Mihari where for two months in early 1960 they would make what they considered to be their last film. The Naked Island tells the story of a small family unit and their subsistence as the only inhabitants of an arid sun-baked island. Daily chores captured as a series of cyclical events result in a hypnotising moving and beautiful film harkening back to the silent era. With hardly any dialogue Shindô combines the stark 'Scope cinematography of Kiyoshi Kuroda with the memorable score of his constant collaborator Hikaru Hayashi to make a unique cinematic document. Shindô who had worked with both Kenji Mizoguchi and Kon Ichikawa shot to international fame in 1952 with the astounding Children of Hiroshima. Eight years later the BAFTA-nominated The Naked Island won the Grand Prix at the Moscow International Film Festival (where Luchino Visconti was a jury member). It is now considered to be one of Shindô’s major works and its success saved his film company from bankruptcy. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to release The Naked Island for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK. Special Features: Newly restored 1080p transfer in its 2.35:1 original aspect ratio Full-length audio commentary by director Kaneto Shindô and composer Hikaru Hayashi Video introduction by Alex Cox Optional English subtitles 24-page booklet with an essay by Acquarello and a reprint of Joan Mellen’s interview with Shindô from Voices from the Japanese Cinema

  • Grizzly Man [Blu-ray] Grizzly Man | Blu Ray | (07/12/2015) from £12.39  |  Saving you £7.60 (38.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Life imitates art, they say, and there have been enough horror films based on the found-footage scenario--from The Blair Witch Project to Cloverfield--for the same scenario to work its way into the real world. But the footage recovered from the bodies of bear enthusiast Timothy Treadwell and girlfriend Amie Huguenard--which includes the sounds of their gory final moments--isn't horrific, but the basis of an affecting portrait of a troubled and gentle man's retreat into nature. For over five years, Timothy Treadwell toured amongst a group of grizzlies in the wilds of an Alaskan national park, filming them closely with an eye for natural beauty. But director Werner Herzog--with typical humanism--ignores the nature to focus on Treadwell, re-cutting his frequent monologues to camera to show an increasingly paranoid fantasist who felt persecuted by the park authorities and had a neurotic habit of giving the bears cuddly human names. Treadwell withdraws into a citadel of self-inventions--recasting himself as an orphaned Australian, a Hollywood contender (second in line, it's claimed, to play Woody in Cheers) and a Byronic eco-warrior, projecting his new-age view of nature onto the Alaskan wilderness with tragic results for him and his girlfriend. But Herzog remains sympathetic to Treadwell, saluting him as a film-maker and reflecting on the sad and subconscious choices of men for whom society is unbearable. His essayistic film restores meaning and dignity to Treadwell and Huguenard's deaths. --Leo Batchelor
