Legendary director NICHOLAS RAY (In a Lonely Place, Rebel Without a Cause) began his career with this lyrical film noir, the first in a series of existential genre films overflowing with sympathy for America's outcasts and underdogs. When the wide-eyed fugitive Bowie (Rope's FARLEY GRANGER), having broken out of prison with some bank robbers, meets the innocent Keechie (Ben-Hur's CATHY O'DONNELL), each recognizes something in the other that no one else ever has. The young lovers envision a new, decent life together, but as they flee the cops and contend with Bowie's fellow outlaws, who aren't about to let him go straight, they realize there's nowhere left to run. Ray brought an outsider's sensibility honed in the theatre to this debut, using revolutionary camera techniques and naturalistic performances to craft a profoundly romantic crime drama that paved the way for decades of lovers-on-the-run thrillers to come.

Series 3 of the Bafta-winning mockumentary sees the Mucklow cousins once again caught up in the minutiae of village life. Kerry is thrilled by the return of her dad after his short spell in prison, but he's back in the family home, and cracks are beginning to show in family relationships. Kurtan's half- brother has died, but how can you celebrate the life of a man who seems to have made no mark on the world at all? Meanwhile the vicar has some important news, and he's concerned about how Kerry and Kurtan will take it.
Shades of early Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Sam Raimi abound in this violent, stylish and riotously entertaining slice of family life, Moscow style, described as a splatterpunk action comedy drenched in gleefully dark Russian humor (The Hollywood Reporter) and an amazing first feature from a filmmaker to watch (Screen Anarchy). Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend's parents' apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honour. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey's attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don't quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable not to mention ruthless opponent than he anticipated and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die. Making his feature debut, writer/director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour. Featuring a soundtrack that veers between Ennio Morricone-esque western riffs and toe-tappingly catchy pop numbers, Why Don't You Just Die! delivers laughs, shocking twists and copious quantities of blood and gore, and establishes Sokolov as one of cinema's brightest rising stars.

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
In stark contrast to the monochrome naturalism of his earlier masterwork Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji, visionary master director Tomu Uchida took inspiration from Bunraku and kabuki theater for arguably his strangest and most lavishly cinematic film, The Mad Fox. Amidst a mythically-depicted medieval Japan, a court astrologer foretells a great disturbance that threatens to split the realm in two. His bitter and treacherous wife conspires to have the astrologer killed, as well as their adopted daughter, Sakaki. The astrologer's master apprentice, Yasuna, who was in love with Sakaki, is driven mad with grief and escapes to the countryside. There, he encounters Sakaki's long-lost twin, Kuzunoha, and the pair meet a pack of ancient fox spirits in the woods, whose presence may be the key to restoring Yasuna's sanity, and in turn bringing peace to the fracturing nation. Finally available outside Japan for the first time, Uchida's stunning, wildly stylised widescreen tableaux using expressionist sets and colour schemes are highlighted in a world premiere Blu-rayâ¢ release.
