    Based on real-life events, Strangled is set in the provincial Hungary of the 1960s at the height of socialism, when a series of atrocious murders shock the small town of Martfű. A psychotic killer is on the prowl, strangling young women. Amidst the media frenzy, an innocent man is accused and sentenced for the crimes he could not possibly have committed. A determined detective becomes obsessed with finding the real killer, whilst under pressure from his superiors who just want to see a man hang. Winner of nine Hungarian Film Awards, Strangled is a dark and gritty thriller from Árpád Sopsits that brings to mind both Lang's M and Fincher's Zodiac in its approach to the murder-mystery genre.

    Eureka Entertainment to release Luchino Visconti's ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS, the melodramatic 1960 masterpiece with an extraordinary cast, on Blu-ray for the first time in the world on 14 March 2016 From Luchino Visconti the master director of such classics as La terra trema, Bellissima, and The Leopard comes this epic study of family, sex, and betrayal. Alongside Fellini's La dolce vita and Antonioni's L'avventura, Visconti's Rocco and His Brothers ushered Italian cinema into a new era, one unafraid to confront head-on the hypocrisies of the ruling class, the squalor in urban living, and the collision between generations. When a tight-knit family moves from Italy's rural south to metropolitan Milan, the new possibilities - and threats - present in their fresh surroundings have alarming, unforeseen consequences. Operatically weaving the five brothers' stories across a vast canvas, with an extraordinary cast including Alain Delon, Annie Girardot and Claudia Cardinale, Rocco and His Brothers stands as one of the most majestic and influential works of its era. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present one of Visconti's most revered films for the first time in the world on Blu-ray.

  • LE MANI SULLA CITTÀ [HANDS OVER THE CITY] (Masters of Cinema) (Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD) LE MANI SULLA CITTÀ (Masters of Cinema) (Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD) | Blu Ray | (31/03/2014) from £8.59  |  Saving you £9.40 (52.30%)  |  RRP £17.99

    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. Special Features: New high-definition 1080p presentation Optional English subtitles Additional extras to be announced A booklet containing the words of Francesco Rosi rare imagery and more!

  • The Handmaiden [Blu-ray] The Handmaiden | Blu Ray | (07/08/2017) from £8.65  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    From celebrated director Park Chan-wook comes a ravishing crime drama inspired by the novel Fingersmith from celebrated British Author Sarah Waters.

  • Kuroneko (1968) [Masters of Cinema] Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) Kuroneko (1968) Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) | Blu Ray | (20/07/2015) from £9.69  |  Saving you £6.30 (39.40%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Kaneto Shindô's Kuroneko (Yabu no naka no kuroneko or The Black Cat Inside the Bamboo Grove) — released to great acclaim in 1968 — is a sparse atmospheric horror story ascribing to the director’s philosophy of using beauty and purity to evoke emotion. Eccentric and more overtly supernatural than its breakthrough companion piece Onibaba Kuroneko revisits similar themes to reveal a haunting meditation on duty conformity and love. In this magnificently eerie and romantic film — loosely based on the Japanese folktale The Cat’s Return — a mother and daughter-in-law (Nobuko Otowa and Kiwako Taichi) are raped and murdered by pillagers but return from the dead as vampiric cat spirits intent on revenge. As the ghosts lure soldiers into the bamboo groves a fearless samurai Gintoki (Kichiemon Nakamura) is sent to stop their reign of terror. Kuroneko remains a standout film of the kaidan eiga genre of period ghost stories often based on old legends or kabuki plays. Marking Shindô’s first use of wire work as Yone and Shige battle against samurai blades the film is subtly complimented by Kiyomi Kuroda’s award-winning chiaroscuro cinematography Hikaru Hayashi’s vibrant score and riveting performances from many of the greatest actors of Japan’s golden age of film.

  • Tokyo Sonata [Masters of Cinema] (Dual Format Edition) [Blu-ray] Tokyo Sonata (Dual Format Edition) | Blu Ray | (13/02/2012) from £9.79  |  Saving you £10.20 (51.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    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

  • Ghost In The Shell [Blu-ray] Ghost In The Shell | Blu Ray | (20/03/2017) from £6.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    The skilful blending of drawn animation and computer-generated imagery excited anime fans when this science fiction mystery was released in 1995: many enthusiasts believe Ghost suggests what the future of anime will be, at least in the short term. The film is set in the not-too-distant future, when an unnamed government uses lifelike cyborgs or "enhanced" humans for undercover work. One of the key cyborgs is The Major, Motoko Kusanagi, who resembles a cross between The Terminator and a Playboy centrefold. She finds herself caught up in a tangled web of espionage and counterespionage as she searches for the mysterious superhacker known as "The Puppet Master." Mamoru Oshii directs with a staccato rhythm, alternating sequences of rapid-fire action (car chases, gun battles, explosions) with static dialogue scenes that allow the characters to sort out the vaguely mystical and rather convoluted plot. Kusanagi's final quote from I Corinthians suggests that electronic evolution may compliment and eventually supplant organic evolution. The minor nudity, profanity, and considerable violence would earn Ghost in the Shell at least a PG rating. --Charles Solomon

  • The Great Beauty [Blu-ray] The Great Beauty | Blu Ray | (13/01/2014) from £6.48  |  Saving you £13.51 (67.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • Il Bidone (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) Il Bidone (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (30/12/2013) from £8.99  |  Saving you £11.00 (55.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Federico Fellini followed up his iconic breakthrough La strada with this brilliant drama - an unsparing look at the dog-eat-dog values of post war Italian society that nonetheless manages to navigate expertly between the lightly comic and the emotionally stark to become one of his richest most moving works. Il bidone [The Swindle] follows three small-time conmen - the ageing Augusto (Broderick Crawford) Picasso (Richard Basehart) and Roberto (Franco Fabrizi) - as they prey upon the poor and gullible for modest gains. However once Augusto is unexpectedly reunited with his daughter now struggling with her studies the moral and emotional demands of his lifestyle begin to take their toll sooner than he had anticipated. With its masterful set pieces and host of superb performances (including the director's wife and muse Giuletta Masina) this forms the centrepiece of what has been termed Fellini's Trilogy of Loneliness (with bookending films La strada and Le notti di Cabiria) and may be the darkest examination of human nature he ever attempted. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this long-undervalued classic in a new high-definition restoration. Special Features: Beautiful new high-definition master with the film appearing in 1080p Optional English subtitles Original theatrical trailer 36-Page Booklet featuring the words of Federico Fellini rare imagery and more!

  • L'Age d'Or [DVD + Blu-ray] [1930] L'Age d'Or | Blu Ray | (30/05/2011) from £8.49  |  Saving you £11.50 (57.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    More than 80 years on this masterpiece of cinematic surrealism remains as brilliantly witty and shocking as ever. Uniting the genius of Luis Buuel and Salvador Dal L'Age d'Or (1930) is a uniquely savage blend of visual poetry and social commentary. A sinister yet poignant chronicle of a couple's struggle to consummate their desire - the film was banned and vilified for many years for its subversive eroticism and furious dissection of 'civilised' values. Also includes Bunuel and Dali's surrealist masterpiece Un Chien Andalou (1928 16min) and A Propsito de Buuel (2000 103 mins) a documentary on the life and work of Luis Buuel by Jos Luis Lpez-Linares and Javier Rioyo.

  • Fox and His Friends & Chinese Roulette [Blu-ray] Fox and His Friends & Chinese Roulette | Blu Ray | (18/07/2016) from £9.19  |  Saving you £8.80 (48.90%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Few filmmakers have enjoyed a decade quite so diverse or quite so prolific as Rainer Werner Fassbinder did during the seventies. Amid the likes of The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant and Fear Eats the Soul, it's easy to forget some of the lesser-known and more singular works, two of which are presented here. Fox and His Friends is among the director's most personal works and the first to tackle homosexuality in a direct manner. Fassbinder himself plays Fox, a sweet working class soul whose relationship with wealthy industrialist Eugen, he discovers, is based almost wholly on his unexpected lottery win. When his money runs out, so does any affection, with tragic consequences. Chinese Roulette, set in an isolated house during a weekend break, is like Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None without the murders a tense psychodrama in which infidelities are revealed and families breakdown. At its centre is nouvelle vague icon Anna Karina, a rare outsider alongside the familiar Fassbinder faces.

  • Salvatore Giuliano [Dual Format DVD & Blu-ray] Salvatore Giuliano | Blu Ray | (29/09/2014) from £9.48  |  Saving you £10.51 (52.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Salvatore Giuliano can be seen as a Citizen Kane-like portrait of a man by those who knew him but is also as a crime film about the mafia and their entanglements with politics and corruption. Francesco Rosi's influential (it's style can be seen as a strong precursor to The Battle of Algiers) film is according to Rosi best explained by the original title: Sicily 1943-60 a stunning investigative portrait that would form the template for his later films. Telling the story of Salvatore Giuliano Italy's most wanted criminal who is found dead with a hand gun and rifle by his side Rosi's films asks difficult questions and courted much controversy in Italy upon release. Filming in the exact locations utilising original court reports as well as casting the actual persons involved Rosi garnered stunning performances from his part non-professional crew but also from his stars Frank Wolff (Once Upon a Time in the West) and Salvo Randone (Satyricon). Stunningly shot by Gianni di Venanzo (Fellini's 8½) the film was never released in the UK despite glowing reviews; 'outstanding' (Variety) 'one of the most courageous things the Italian cinema has ever attempted' (Sight and Sound) 'the most aesthetically satisfying and inventive film of its type in many years' (Monthly Film Bulletin) finally it can now be appreciated in a stunning new 4K restoration. Special Features: New 4K film restoration carried out with support from Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation at the Cineteca di Bologna film laboratory Newly created and exclusive content Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned by Jay Shaw Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film and more!

  • ROMA (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) ROMA (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (24/02/2014) from £8.59  |  Saving you £7.40 (46.30%)  |  RRP £15.99

    One of the maestro Federico Fellini's greatest '70s works (between Satyricon and The Clowns and Amarcord) Roma [Rome] erupts volcanically as a state-of-the-world pronouncement on what was not only happening within Rome at the tide of the hippies' organic birth and the post-Boom-set that made up his characters of the 1960s films but also where and how his city would move feverishly forward into one of potential futures. As Fellini himself travels with his crew to document the ring-road circling Rome with all the natural diversions that might inherently divert a traditional film shoot we move into episodes that chart the wartime difficulties of Roman life across those fleeting times that chronicle love and life within the modern-day Rome-time themselves pitted against the archaeological vestiges of the great city - and the Catholic church rears its dominance and we come into a midpoint that positions itself indeed between the memory-cinema of Satyricon and Amarcord. One of the great and bountiful colour-spectacles of Fellini's cinema almost leapt off toward from the moment of Giulietta of the Spirits Fellini's Roma remains a passionate testament both to the city that finally claimed him as its son after he left small Rimini and to the final stage of cinema that he himself would work till the day he died. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Fellini's Roma in a Blu-ray edition for the first time in the UK.

    The Ladykiller of Rome. Released within months of Fellini's La Dolce Vita and Antonioni's La Notte Elio Petri's dazzling first feature L'Assassino also stars Marcello Mastroianni this time as dandyish thirtysomething antiques dealer Alfredo Martelli arrested on suspicion of murdering his older far wealthier lover Adalgisa (Micheline Presle). But as the increasingly Kafkaesque police investigation proceeds it becomes less and less important whether Martelli actually committed the crime as his entire lifestyle is effectively put on trial. Best known for Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion and The Tenth Victim Petri was one of the finest and yet most underrated Italian directors of the 1960s and 70s. Highly acclaimed on its original UK release but unjustly neglected since L'Assassino is a remarkably assured debut from one of the cinema's sharpest chroniclers of Italian social and political realities. Petri said that he wanted to reflect the changes wrought by the early sixties and to examine 'a new generation of upstarts who lacked any kind of moral scruple'. Arrow Academy is proud to present the first ever UK video release of L'Assassino in a gorgeous high-definition restoration created by the Cineteca di Bologna. Special Features: New 2K digital restoration from the Cineteca di Bologna Uncompressed Mono 2.0 PCM Audio Elio Petri and L'Assassino an introduction by Italian cinema expert Pasquale Iannone Tonino Guerra: A Poet in the Movies: Nicola Tranquillino's documentary about the great Italian screenwriter Theatrical Trailer Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Jay Shaw Booklet featuring new writing on the film by Elio Petri expert Camilla Zamboni plus a selection of contemporary reviews
