    Although made in 1956, A Town Like Alice has remained enduringly effective and affecting. Based on Nevil Shute's novel the story revolves around a romance set against the unlikely backdrop of a forced march through the jungles of Malaysia by British prisoners--mostly women and children--captured by the invading forces of Japan. The title is a reference to the homesick yearnings of Australian soldier Joe Harman, played by Peter Finch. He forms a bond with one of the female prisoners, Jean Paget (Virginia McKenna), and their travails are depicted with a remarkable subtlety and commendable lack of corniness. It's a minor classic. On the DVD: The black-and-white picture is presented in 4:3 format, with English subtitles if required. Extra features include a 25-minute "making of" documentary, a collection of behind-the-scenes photographs, potted biographies of the cast and crew and the original trailer. --Andrew Mueller

  • Hidden [Blu-ray] [2005] Hidden | Blu Ray | (27/10/2008) from £8.19  |  Saving you £16.80 (67.20%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Writer/director Michael Haneke delivers a masterpiece of unsettlement with Hidden (Cache). Life seems perfect for Georges (Daniel Auteuil) and Anne (Juliette Binoche) a bourgeois Parisian couple who live in a comfortable home with their adolescent son Pierrot (Lester Makedonsky). But when an anonymous videotape turns up on their doorstep showing their house under surveillance from across the street their calm life begins to spiral out of control. Subsequent videotapes arrive accompanied by mysterious drawings and gradually Georges becomes convinced that he's being tormented by a figure from his past. But when he confronts him the man assures Georges he is innocent. A growing sense of guilt begins to rise in Georges as he recalls his less-than-angelic childhood yet for some reason he's unable to be completely honest with Anne. Soon their happy home is an emotional battleground leading to a climax that is breathtaking in its ferocity and ambiguousness. Though Haneke's film works first and foremost as an insidious thriller it is also a powerful commentary on the urban paranoia and racism that continue to permeate modern society. Without using a score and keeping his camera detached and static Haneke nonetheless establishes a nearly unbearable level of tension. Not for the squeamish Hidden remains a work of menacing brilliance and was the winner of the Best Director award at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.

Winner of the BAFTA Awards for Best Film Best Director Best Original Screenplay Best Cinematography Best Editing and Best Sound. Winner of the Academy Awards for Best Picture Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow) Best Screenplay Best Editing Best Sound Mixing & Best Sound Editing. Play.com Review One of the best films of 2009 The Hurt Locker bears similarities to David Simon and Ed Burns' Generation Kill in its non-judgemental depiction of military life and the motivations of soldiers. It's a complicated and sometimes uncomfortable look into a world in which most of us will never get closer to than on our TV screens. The fact is some soldiers for one reason or another like the thrill of war. Sgt. James (charismatically played by James Renner - 28 Weeks Later) is one such soldier. Not one to do things by the book James is right at the centre of this devastating action film. Unhinged but not without his demons James regularly comes into conflict with his new teammates: the aspirational but conventional Sgt. Sanborn (Anthony Mackie - Notorious) and rabbit in the headlights Spc. Eldridge (Brian Geraghty - The Guardian). The proverbial 'hurt locker' is one they barely keep shut. There's a job to be done even if it does draw them closer to hell with each passing moment. Film buffs will be pleased to learn that The Hurt Locker features sterling cameos from Guy Pearce (The Road) David Morse (16 Blocks) and Ralph Fiennes (briefly reunited with his Strange Days director). Bigelow knows her action as Point Break K-19: The Widowmaker and Near Dark fans will testify and here she has created a battleground where even the camera is nervous - danger even when it doesn't come feels like it's everywhere. Moving through a series increasingly fraught bomb disposals the movie presents an apolitical view of soldiering that whilst not being unique to the genre (Kubrick's Paths Of Glory Coppola's Apocalypse Now and Fuller's The Big Red One) captures a chaos and intensity seldom seen elsewhere. It's refreshing to watch a war film that doesn't preach endlessly about the nature of war but shows you enough horror for you to make up your own mind. Overall we can't urge you strongly enough to open The Hurt Locker and experience this masterpiece from a master director - it's an experience you will not forget in a hurry.

  • There Will Be Blood [Blu-ray] There Will Be Blood | Blu Ray | (07/07/2008) from £6.99  |  Saving you £17.00 (70.90%)  |  RRP £23.99

    A brutal bloody and gripping saga of obsession corruption and poisonous greed; Paul Thomas Anderson's Award Winning There Will Be Blood is a masterly unwavering inspection of a consummately evil man whose trailblazing spirit is equalled only by his murderous ambition. In the dying years of the nineteenth century Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis) a struggling silver miner realises that true wealth lies in oil extraction. Driven by a passionate hatred for others and an intense psychological need to see competitors fail he heads for the oil-rich land of California in a bid to manipulate and exploit the landowners of dust-worn Little Boston in to selling him their properties. Forefront of the town is self-styled 'faith healer' Eli Sunday (Paul Dano) who is structuring his own sinister plan to funnel the residents' impending wealth into his self-founded church. As Plainview's empire expands so does his obsession with the intrinsic value of power and he becomes increasingly irascible and paranoid along the way. What follows is a vindictive ruthless and violent chain of events as Plainview fails to deliver on promises as he pits himself against the town's perturbed and unstable charismatic teenage preacher. In addition to stunning visuals and an exceptional captivating score from accomplished composer (and Radiohead guitarist) Jonny Greenwood director Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia) owes his best work to date to the incredible Academy Award winning performance as Plainview by Daniel Day-Lewis and the staggering portrayal of Eli Sunday by Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine). Bearing similarities to Citizen Kane and Giant There Will Be Blood is an intelligent thought-provoking and powerfully-eccentric epic masterpiece that is as enchanting as it is timeless.
