    With Fitzcarraldo one of his most renowned films acclaimed German director Werner Herzog emulates Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness' in this mammoth epic set in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. Klaus Kinski stars as the wild-eyed entrepreneur Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald (the Indians call him Fitzcarraldo) who dreams of bringing opera to the jungle and is literally driven mad by his passion for music. The 25th Anniversary Edition of Fitzcarraldo comes packaged with Les Blank's award-winning documentary Burden of Dreams. Les Blank's documentary follows the making of the film which parallels the quest to bring opera to the jungle with the director's own determination to see his project to the screen. Stars Jason Robards and Mick Jagger both pull out midway through the shoot before weather woes bad feelings on-set and a war between Peru and Ecuador all conspire to hold up the production. What does emerge is Herzog's remarkable dogmatic attitude towards the chaos.

  • Fellini's 8.1/2 [1962]Fellini's 8.1/2 | DVD | (19/11/2012) from £20.00   |  Saving you £-0.01 (-0.10%)   |  RRP £19.99

    Federico Fellini's 8 1/2, his 1963 semi-autobiographical story about a worshipped filmmaker who has lost his inspiration, is still a mesmerising mystery tour that has been quoted (Woody Allen's Stardust Memories, Paul Mazursky's Alex in Wonderland) but never duplicated. Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido, a director trying to relax a bit in the wake of his latest hit. Besieged by people eager to work with him, however, he also struggles to find his next idea for a film. The combined pressures draw him within himself, where his recollections of significant events in his life and the many lovers he has left behind begin to haunt him. The marriage of Fellini's hyper real imagery, dreamy sidebars and the gravity of Guido's increasing guilt and self-awareness make this as much a deeply moving, soulful film as it is an electrifying spectacle. Mastroianni is wonderful in the lead, his woozy sensitivity to Guido's freefall both touching and charming--all the more so as the character becomes increasingly divorced from the celebrity hype that ultimately outpaces him. --Tom Keogh
