    After enjoying fantastic success with Fritz Lang's two-part Indian Epic in 1959, German producer Artur Brauner signed the great director to direct one more film. The result would be the picture that, in closing the saga he began nearly forty years earlier, brought Lang's career full-circle, and would come to represent his final celluloid testamentby extension: his final film masterpiece. The Thousand Eyes of Dr. Mabuse [Die 1000 Augen des Dr. Mabuse] finds that diabolical Weimar name resurfacing in the Cold War era, linked to a new methodology of murder and mayhem. Seances, assassinations, and Nazi-engineered surveillance techall abound in Lang's paranoid, and ultimate, filmic labyrinth. One of the great and cherished last films in the history of cinema, The Thousand Eyes of Dr. Mabuse provides a stylistic glimpse into the 1960s works on such subjects as sex-crime, youth-culture, and LSD that Lang would unfortunately never come to realise. Nonetheless, Lang's final film remains an explosive, and definitive, closing statement. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Fritz Lang's final film on Blu-ray. Special Features: LIMITED EDITION O-CARD SLIPCASE [First Print Run of 2000 copies only] 1080p presentation on Blu-ray Original German soundtrack Optional English audio track, approved by Fritz Lang Optional English subtitles Feature-length audio commentary by film-scholar and Lang expert David Kalat 2002 interview with Wolfgang Preiss Alternate ending Reversible sleeve featuring newly commissioned and original poster artwork Plus: a collector's booklet featuring a new essay by Philip Kemp; vintage reprints of writing by Lang; an essay by David Cairns; notes by Lotte Eisner on Lang's final, unrealised projects

  • The Wages of Fear (Limited Edition Dual Format) [DVD]The Wages of Fear (Limited Edition Dual Format) | DVD | (23/10/2017) from £7.99   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £N/A

    In 1953, before any American studio exec used the phrase "high concept", Henri-George Clouzot's The Wages of Fear boasted a premise so literally explosive that audiences were excited before they got into the theatres. With an oil-fire burning out of control deep in the South American jungle, two lorryloads of highly unstable nitro-glycerin have to be driven through miles of unstable terrain littered with dangerous turns, crumbling planks, falling rocks and mediocre hardtop. One good jolt will vaporise truck, nitro, drivers and a substantial swathe of the countryside, so the company recruits desperate souls among the loser tramps who loiter around the nowhere town of Las Piedras, begging for any kind of work. On the road, Clouzot stages a string of unforgettable sequences: one stretch of badly paved track can only be crossed by driving at under six miles an hour or over 40; a mountain turn requires that the trucks back out onto a rickety, rotten wooden structure; a 50-ton boulder has fallen into the road, and one of the drivers calmly drains a litre of nitro into his thermos to blow it up, only remembering when the fuse is lit that this will rain pebbles all over the countryside and a few good hits on the cargo will set it off. This is perhaps as great a mix of action-adventure and contest as The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and still a textbook example of sustained suspense. On the DVD: The print is in great shape, though the image is a little soft; the menu has a clever explosive aspect and uses the same vintage artwork as the sleeve cannily combined with a snippet. There are trailers for both Wages and Clozuot's other masterpiece, Les Diaboliques, as well as biographies of the principal cast, eight stills and three posters.--Kim Newman

  • Attack [1956]Attack | DVD | (05/05/2003) from £7.69   |  Saving you £5.30 (40.80%)   |  RRP £12.99

    With a company of American soldiers trapped by the Germans during The Battle of the Bulge their captain is an abject psychopathic coward who has a record of exposing his men to danger.

  • The Bridge At Remagen [1968]The Bridge At Remagen | DVD | (17/04/2019) from £4.99   |  Saving you £7.00 (140.28%)   |  RRP £11.99

    Fine casting, rugged characters and authentic military detail make The Bridge at Remagen one of the best World War II action films of the 1960s. Based on actual incidents during the final Allied advance on Germany in March 1945, the story focuses on the US Army's exhausted 27th Armoured Infantry, assigned to seize the bridge at Remagen, on the Rhine river, to prevent 50,000 German troops from retreating to safety. Lt Hartman (George Segal) leads the mission, while a Nazi major (Robert Vaughn) defies orders by attempting to hold the bridge instead of blowing it up. With strong emphasis on war's harsher realities, the film's compelling characters illustrate the camaraderie of survivors and the heroism of mavericks in the thick of battle. Segal and Ben Gazzara effectively convey a hard-won friendship, and the film's dynamic action (filmed in Czechoslovakia and Italy) never overwhelms the story's emotional impact. This is highly recommended. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com
