  • The Wages of Fear (Limited Edition Dual Format) [DVD] The Wages of Fear (Limited Edition Dual Format) | DVD | (23/10/2017) from £8.95  |  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

  • Mulholland Drive [2002] Mulholland Drive | DVD | (09/09/2002) from £5.39  |  Saving you £14.60 (73.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Pandora couldn't resist opening the forbidden box containing all the delusions of mankind, and let's just say in Mulholland Drive David Lynch indulges a similar impulse. Employing a familiar film noir atmosphere to unravel, as he coyly puts it, "a love story in the city of dreams", Lynch establishes a foreboding but playful narrative in the film's first half before subsuming all of Los Angeles and its corrupt ambitions into his voyeuristic universe of desire. Identities exchange, amnesia proliferates and nightmare visions are induced, but not before we've become enthralled by the film's two main characters: the dazed and sullen femme fatale, Rita (Laura Elena Harring), and the pert blonde just-arrived from Ontario (played exquisitely by Naomi Watts) who decides to help Rita regain her memory. Triggered by a rapturous Spanish-language version of Roy Orbison's "Crying", Lynch's best film since Blue Velvet splits glowingly into two equally compelling parts. --Fionn Meade

  • Goodbye Lenin! (2002) Goodbye Lenin! (2002) | DVD | (03/09/2007) from £5.95  |  Saving you £12.30 (61.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Much like the Berlin Wall upon which much of the film hinges, Wolfgang Becker's delightful Goodbye Lenin pitches itself halfway between the spartan family theatrics of Thomas Vinterberg's Festen and the verdant sentimentality of Pedro Almodovar's All About My Mother.It's Germany, 1989, and Christiane, a staunch supporter of East Germany's socialist regime, collapses in the street as her son, Alexander, is dragged into the back of a Stasi van amidst the violence and mayhem of a peaceful protest gone wrong. A heart attack leaves Christiane in a coma for 8 tumultuous months in which the Berlin Wall falls and East and West Germany tentatively embrace reunification. Upon her waking, the doctors inform son Alexander and daughter Ariana that the slightest shock is likely to kill their mother - so Alexander hatches a plan, a plan that will see East Germany immortalised within the confines of his mother's bedroom.Alexander, played with suitable intensity by Daniel Bruhl (he looks like Ahston Kuchler, of MTV's Punk'd, but he acts like Spiderman's Tobey Maguire) - is forced to hunt out abandoned jars of Spreewald Pickles, film news stories with his Kubrick-loving buddy explaining the appearance of huge Coca Cola billboards across the street and pay children to pretend to be former pupils of his mother - all to maintain the pretence of the continued existence of East Germany.Striking precisely the right balance between the sour reality experienced by many East Germans (old man Gdanske prowls around the periphery of the movie howling for the bad old days, Alexander and Ariane find themselves cheated out of thousands of Deutschmarks by the bank), and the lightness required to make what is essentially dark material comic, Becker fashions what many consider to be something of a first: a dazzling German comedy.
