  • FAUST (Masters of Cinema) (DVD & BLU-RAY DUAL FORMAT) FAUST (Masters of Cinema) (DVD & BLU-RAY DUAL FORMAT) | Blu Ray | (18/08/2014) from £13.99  |  Saving you £6.00 (30.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Shot in the UFA studios with a big movie star in the lead and all the special effects and production design resources any blockbuster of its time could wish for, FW Murnau's 1926 Faust represents a step up from his better-known Nosferatu. Oddly, Faust is a less familiar film than the vampire quickie and this release affords fans a chance to see what Murnau can do with an equally major fantasy story. Adapted neither from Marlowe's play Dr Faustus nor Goethe's verse drama, the script scrambles various elements of the legend and presents a Faust (Gosta Ekman) driven to summon the Devil by despair as a plague rages through the town, desperate to gain enough learning to help his neighbours. When this deal doesn't quite work out, because he is stoned by townsfolk who notice his sudden fear of the cross, Mephisto (Emil Jannings) offers Faust instead renewed youth and an opportunity to seduce a famously beautiful Italian noblewoman and then to return to his home village and get involved with the pure Gretchen (Camilla Horn). Like most versions of the story, it's episodic and some sections are stronger than others: the great stuff comes in the plague and initial deal sequences, though it picks up again for the tragic climax as Gretchen becomes the central figure and suffers horribly, freezing in the snows and burning at the stake. Jannings' devil, a gruesomely humorous slice of ham, is one of the great silent monster performances, reducing everyone else to a stick figure, and Murnau faces the challenge of topping his Nosferatu imagery by deploying a battalion of effects techniques to depict the many magical journeys, sudden appearances and transformations. On the DVD: Often seen in ragged, incomplete prints projected at the wrong speed, this is a decently restored version, running a full 115 minutes with a complete orchestral score. The original materials show some of the damage to be expected in a film of its vintage, but the transfer is excellent, displaying the imaginative art direction and camerawork to superb advantage. Aside from a nicely eerie menu, the sole extra is a full-length commentary originating in Australia: written by historian Peter Spooner but read by narrator Russell Cawthorne (who mispronounces the odd name). This provides an interesting wealth of background detail, such as Murnau's attempt to cast Hollywood's Lillian Gish as Gretchen, and delivers a balanced assessment of the film itself. --Kim Newman

    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

  • Donizetti-L'elisir D'amore Donizetti-L'elisir D'amore | DVD | (06/11/2006) from £10.99  |  Saving you £5.00 (31.30%)  |  RRP £15.99

    This performance captured in Vienna in April 2005 of Donizetti's Elisir d'Amore was an absolute sensation no doubt due to the casting which brought together Rolando Villazn and Anna Netrebko in the title roles. The DVD highlights not only Rolando Villazn as the great tenor he is becoming but also allows you to see the full extent of his talents as an actor. It also introduces on Virgin Classics the Russian soprano Anna Netrebko with whom Rolando has often performed. The production by Otto Schenk although traditional in character carries the story with charm and wit.
