    Of all Masaki Kobayashi's attacks on the cruelty and inhumanity perpetrated by authoritarian power (including The Human Condition and Samurai Rebellion) perhaps none are more brilliant than his visceral mesmerising Harakiri [aka Seppuku].

With its intricate structure and pressure-cooker atmosphere Kobayashi's first jidai-geki period drama is a full-scale demolition job of samurai ideals and feudal hypocrisy filmed with artistry and surgical precision and scored by celebrated composer Toru Takemitsu.

    Kiyoshi Kurosawa — the hugely acclaimed Japanese director famous for his groundbreaking, existential horror films such as Cure and Kairo [Pulse] — set Cannes alight in 2008 with this highly topical film: an eerie, poignant reflection on the mass uncertainty sweeping the world. When Ryuhei Sasaki (played by Teruyuki Kagawa) is unceremoniously dumped from his ‘safe’ company job, his family's happy, humdrum life is put at risk. Unwilling to accept the shame of unemployment, the loyal salaryman decides not to tell anyone, instead leaving home each morning in suit and tie with briefcase, spending his days searching for work and lining up for soup with the homeless. Outstanding performances; serene, elegant direction; and Kurosawa's trademark chills are evident as he ratchets up the unsettling atmosphere and the grim hopelessness of Sasaki's unemployment. Special Dual Format Edition includes: 1080p Blu-Ray transfer in the original aspect ratio Making of documentary Q&A, Tokyo, September 2008 Premiere footage, Tokyo, September 2008 DVD discussion UK Trailer 28 page colour booklet

    Winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival Francesco Rosi's Le mani sulla città [Hands Over the City] is one of the finest political dramas ever made - a ferocious invigorating exploration of civic corruption in post-war Naples with the intensity of the best Hollywood thrillers. Beginning with the collapse of an apartment building in a working-class district the film zeroes in on the subsequent investigation of responsibility surrounding the disaster. At the centre is Edoardo Nottola (Rod Steiger) a wealthy land developer and council member of the government's ruling party who is determined to keep his personal and professional interests in the building of new government housing as intertwined as possible. With sterling performances and visual prowess Rosi meticulously unpicks the tangled threads of interconnected favours and unscrupulous culture of self-reward within the halls of governmental power. This brilliant exposé (a major influence on countless filmmakers including Coppola's Godfather films) remains as blazingly topical as the day of its premiere. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this film for the first time on home viewing in the UK in a new Dual-Format (Blu-ray and DVD) edition.

    Federico Fellini's darkest film cracks through the myth of Giacomo Casanova. As played by Donald Sutherland (M.A.S.H, Don't Look Now), the notorious womanizer is presented as a pitiable and terrifying figure. Casanova craves respect as a scholar and yearns to pursue his interest in alchemy. A sex scandal lands him in prison, but an escape to Paris provides him a new lease of life. Yet every Court in Europe and its attendant patrons and hostesses will only entertain him if he lives up to his reputation in theritual displays of sex and courtship which form part of the daily life of 18th Century Europe. Fellini had dealt with the theme of the frustration of human desires in La Dolce Vita and 8 ½. In Casanova, the nobleman's search for happiness achieves tragedy, a painful reflection of the human condition. Fellini's Casanova is celebrated for its production values and costume design, for which Danilo Donati won Academy and BAFTA awards, and is made memorable by Nino Rota's unusual haunting score. This twilight work is one of the greatest films of the 1970s. Sutherland's performance is the most astonishing piece of screen acting since Brando's in Last Tango in Paris - Time Out A spectacular visual fantasy which succeeds in capturing the emotional and moral void at the heart of the Casanova myth ... a beautiful, indulgent private fantasy - Film4

  • Van Gogh (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) Van Gogh (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (30/09/2013) from £8.99  |  Saving you £6.00 (40.00%)  |  RRP £14.99

    One of the greatest films by one of the finest directors of the second half of the 20th century Maurice Pialat's Van Gogh represents an ambitious and crowning achievement in its portrayal of the master painter's final weeks of life almost exactly one-hundred years earlier. Van Gogh depicted by the remarkable actor/songwriter-singer Jacques Dutronc (Godard's Sauve qui peut (la vie)) has arrived at Auvers-sur-Oise to come under the care of Dr. Gachet (Gérard Séty) for his nervous agitation. Soon after the arrival of Vincent's brother Théo (Bernard Le Coq) and his wife plein air portraiture and conviviality give way to the more crepuscular moods of brothels and cabarets and the painter's anguished existence tossing between money worries and an impassioned relationship with the doctor's teenage daughter finally meets its terminal scene. With its loosely factual and wholly inspired treatment of the last period of Van Gogh's life Pialat's film applies an impressionist touch to the biographical picture — indeed the filmmaker was himself an accomplished painter and the personal resonance of the subject matter results in an epic major late work. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Maurice Pialat's Van Gogh on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK and also in a special two-disc DVD edition. Special Features: Gorgeous new restoration of the film appearing in 1080p New and improved optional English subtitles Van Gogh (1965) — a short early documentary about the painter by Maurice Pialat A 10-minute video interview with Pialat from 1991 A 50-minute video interview with Pialat from 1992 Video interviews with actors Jacques Dutronc and Bernard Le Coq; director of photography Emmanuel Machuel; and editor Yann Dedet Deleted scenes Original theatrical trailer 56-Page Booklet containing a new and exclusive essay by critic Sabrina Marques; Jean-Luc Godard's letter to Pialat after seeing the film followed by Godard's tribute to Pialat upon the director's passing in 2003; copious newly translated interviews with Maurice Pialat; images of Pialat's canvasses; rare imagery; and more!
