With her ravishingly sensual take on HERMAN MELVILLE's Billy Budd, Sailor, CLAIRE DENIS (White Material) firmly established herself as one of the great visual tone poets of our time. Amid the azure waters and sunbaked desert landscapes of Djibouti, a French Foreign Legion sergeant (Mauvais sang's DENIS LAVANT) sows the seeds of his own ruin as his obsession with a striking young recruit (35 Shots of Rum's GRÃGOIRE COLIN) plays out to the thunderous, operatic strains of BENJAMIN BRITTEN. Denis and cinematographer AGNÃS GODARD (Let the Sunshine In) fold military and masculine codes of honor, colonialism's legacy, destructive jealousy, and repressed desire into shimmering, hypnotic images that ultimately explode in one of the most startling and unforgettable endings in all of modern cinema. Special Features: New 4K digital restoration, supervised by director of photography AgnÃ¨s Godard and approved by director Claire Denis, with uncompressed stereo soundtrack New conversation between Denis and filmmaker Barry Jenkins New selected scene commentary with Godard New interviews with actors Denis Lavant and GrÃ©goire Colin New video essay by film scholar Judith Mayne New English subtitle translation PLUS: An essay by critic Girish Shambu
Punk is a 4-part series exploring the history of punk music featuring global music icons. Interspersing stories from America s punk pioneers with those of UK bands of the same ilk looking to conquer the USA, Punk defines the genre s American DNA and explores its subsequent propagation across the Atlantic. Featuring a seamless blend of rare and unseen photos and gritty video, a crackling soundtrack of punk hits and misses, original interviews and VIP access to the scene s biggest movers and shakers including to name just a few. From the ink-stained fingers that produced Xeroxed fanzines, to the kids packing basements and warehouse spaces, to hundreds of bodies slamming into one another and rushing makeshift stages, Punk reveals for the first time the profound effect America had on this global popular culture.
