Rocco and his Brothers (1961) (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (14/03/2016)
from £11.97 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Eureka Entertainment to release Luchino Viscontiâ??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 â?? the master director of such classics as La terra trema, Bellissima, and The Leopard â?? comes this epic study of family, sex, and betrayal. Alongside Felliniâ??s La dolce vita and Antonioniâ??s Lâ??avventura, Viscontiâ??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 Italyâ??s rural south to metropolitan Milan, the new possibilities - and threats - present in their fresh surroundings have alarming, unforeseen consequences. Operatically weaving the five brothersâ?? 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 Viscontiâ??s most revered films for the first time in the world on Blu-ray. Special Features: Gorgeous high-definition 1080p presentation from a new 4k restoration Optional English subtitles Two audio choices; the original Italian, and the French dub Les coulisses du tournage, a 2003 French documentary about the film A 1999 interview with Viscontiâ??s cinematographer Giuseppe Rotunno An interview with actress Claudia Cardinale A 2002 interview with actress Annie Girardot Luchino Visconti, an hour-long documentary about the life and work of Visconti Two vintage newsreels Original Italian trailer PLUS: A 40-PAGE BOOKLET featuring writing by Guido Aristarco, an essay written by the director in 1960, a vintage interview with Visconti and rare archival imagery.

Farewell My Concubine (Dual Format Edition) | DVD | (18/01/2016)
from £13.49 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
The panorama of 20th-century Chinese history swirls past two men, celebrated actors with their own decidedly specialised view of things. We first observe their lives as children at the Peking Opera training school, a brutal and demanding arena for future actors. While still in training, the effeminate Douzi is chosen to play the transvestite role and the masculine Shitou is chosen to play the royal role in a ritualised play about a king and a concubine. The actors are so good at this performance that they become identified with these roles for their entire careers; through World War II, through the takeover by the Communists, through the insanity of the Cultural Revolution, they are known for their famous parts. Leslie Cheung and Zhang Fengyi are powerful as the two men, and Gong Li (the beautiful leading lady of Raise the Red Lantern) plays the wife of the latter. The movie may be stronger on good old-fashioned melodrama than on profound conclusions, but boy, does it fill up the eyes. The director is Chen Kaige, one of the most talented members of China's "Fifth Generation" of filmmakers, whose daring subject matter (and sometimes bald international ambitions) have often irked the Chinese government. Indeed, though Farewell My Concubine shared the top prize at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival and snagged two Oscar nominations, it had difficulty gaining official approval from China. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com

Hayao Miyazaki had been cradling the idea for this wonderful fantasy for a long time before he finally decided to write and direct it. Set in rural Japan during the 1950s, My Neighbour Totoro is full of the magical touches that Miyazaki has become famous for.Tatsuo Kusakabe and his two daughters, Mei and Satsuki, have moved to the country to be near their ailing mother who resides at a local hospital. As the girls explore their surroundings, the younger sibling, Mei, believes that the forest is inhabited by magical creatures, much to the amusement of her father and sister. However, one day Mei gets lost in the forest and discovers a group of Totoros - protectors of the forest. Eventually Mei convinces Satsuki to come with her and the three have a series of wonderful adventures together, as their mother begins to recuperate.Hayao Miyazaki's imagination is simply incredible and My Neighbour Totoro perfectly displays his talent to create stories and characters that you really care about. Aside from the variously sized Totoros there is the magnificently surreal 'Catbus' to contend with too! Also, you get a first look at the 'dust bunnies' - later seen in Spirited Away!
Hawks and Sparrows (1966) / Pigsty (1969) Limited Edition (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (22/02/2016)
from £13.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
From its sung opening credits, Hawks and Sparrows (Uccellacci e uccellini) is a wonderfully free-form picaresque fable that lampoons politics, religion and the state of modern Italy, as the beloved comic actor TotÃ², Pasolini regular Ninetto Davoli and a talking crow wander the landscape through a gauntlet of unexpected encounters. Pigsty (Porcile) is one of his most controversial works, interspersing the mute wanderings of cannibalistic savages against a barren, volcanic earth with the tale of Julian (played by Nouvelle Vague icon Jean-Pierre LÃ©aud), his radically politicised fiancÃ©e Ida (Anne Wiazemsky, Au Hasard Balthazar), and the financial machinations of his father Herr Klotz in contemporary industrialised Germany. Both films demonstrate a restless, pioneering artistâ??s exploration of the natural world contrasted with the societal structures that govern human life. Visually inspired and playing by no-oneâ??s rules other than his own, these two brilliant works by Pasolini are presented on Blu-ray for the first time in a new limited edition.

Perfect Blue - Standard Edition | Blu Ray | (02/02/2015)
from £12.01 | Saving you £5.98 (33.20%) | RRP
One of the most ambitious animated films to come out of Japan (or anywhere, for that matter), Perfect Blue is an adult psycho-thriller that uses the freedom of the animated image to create the subjective reality of a young actress haunted by the ghost of her past identity. Mima is a singer who leaves her teeny-bop trio to become an actress in a violent television series, a career move that angers her fans, who prefer to see her as the pert, squeaky-clean pop idol. Plagued by self-doubt and tormented by humiliating compromises, she begins to be stalked, in her waking and sleeping moments, by an accusing alter ego who claims to be "the real Mima", until she collapses into madness as her co-workers are brutally slain around her. Director Satoshi Kon, adapting the novel by Yoshikazu Takeuchi, shows us the world from her schizophrenic perspective: days blur, dreams cross over into the waking world, the TV show blends into her real life, until her life merges with her part and she can't separate the ghosts from the real-life stalkers. Though the pat ending sweeps the psychosis and anxiety away with nary an emotional scar, it remains a smart, stylish thriller and one of the most intelligent and compelling uses of animation in recent years. Though tame by the extreme standards of "adult anime", there is nudity and a few sexually provocative scenes, and the animation is detailed and stylised (if somewhat stiff and jerky by Disney standards). --Sean Axmaker
