      Caravaggio

      Zavvi

      <p>Derek Jarmam struggled for seven years to bring his portrait of the seventeenth-century Italian artist Michelangelo de Caravaggio to the screen. The result was well worth the wait, and was greeted with critical acclaim: a freely dramatised portrait of the controversial artist and a powerful mediation on sexuality, criminality and art - a new refreshing take on the usual biopic.The film centres on an imagined love-triangle between Caravaggio, his friend and model Ranuccio, and Ranuccio's low-life partner Lena. Conjuring some of the artist's most famous paintings through elaborate and beautifully photographed tableaux vivants, those works are woven into the fabric of the story, providing a starting point for its characters and narrative episodes.Caravaggio features wonderful performances from Nigel Terry, Sean Bean, and, in her first role, Tilda Swinton, who was to become Jarman's muse and long-time collaborator. A visual treat, it was the first major film production for award-winning costume designer Sandy Powell, with luscious production design by Christopher Hobbs.</p>

      Ikiru

      Zavvi

      <p>Opening with a shot of an x-ray, showing the main character's stomach, Ikiru tells the tale of a dedicated, downtrodden civil servant who, diagnosed with a fatal cancer, learns to change his dull, unfulfilled existence, and suddenly discovers a zest for life. Plunging first into self-pity, then a bout of hedonistic pleasure-seeking on the frenetic streets of post-war Tokyo, Watanable - the film's hero - finally finds satisfaction through building a children's playground.Beautifully played by Takashi Shimura (who starred in 21 of Kurosawa's films), Ikiru is an intensely lyrical and moving film, and was one of Kurosawa's own favourites. The film is much admired by Steven Spielberg and Hollywood re-make is said to be in the pipeline.</p>

      Man With A Movie Camera

      Zavvi

      <p>'Man With a Movie Camera' is an extraordinary piece of filmmaking, a montage of urban Russian life showing the people of the city at work and at play, and the machines that keep the city going. It was Vertov's first full-length film, and he used all the cinematic techniques at his disposal - dissolves, split screen, slow motion and freeze-frames - to produce a work that is exhilarating and intellectually brilliant. This special edition DVD features a choice of three soundtracks to accompany the film: A soundtrack composed and performed by the Alloy Orchestra, who have closely followed Vertov's notes on music to accompany the film. A new score from In the Nursery, who successfully toured the UK with the film last year. Their score deploys the latest music technology to create a soundtrack that reflects Vertov's own progressive filmmaking techniques. A commentary by Yuri Tsivian, the leading historian of Russian silent camera. His provocative and stimulating account makes this masterpiece of documentary cinema accessible as never before.</p>

When small-time hood Matsunaga (Toshiro Mifune) comes to his surgery after a gunfight Sanada diagnoses him with tuberculosis and convinces him to begin treatment. The disillusioned doctor feels that, by saving this young yakuza, he can retrieve a sense of his own lost youth and idealism. Thus they embark on a troubled friendship which is tested by the prejudices of the two and the release from prison of Matsunaga's mobster boss.Mifune, in his first major screen role, and Toho regular Shimura star together in a film which is part gangster, part melodrama and part social critique, establishing for the first time their dynamic relationship and the extraordinary on-screen chemistry which Kurosawa would explore further in films such as Stray Dog and Seven Samurai.Despite being Kurosawa's eighth feature, Drunken Angel was the director's first critical success and the first film in which he 'finally discovered (himself)'. The 'existential humanism' which made him famous is at the root of this extraordinary tale with the correlation between strength of spirit and physical well-being representing the two forces at work in post-war Japan.</p>

      Of Time And The City

      Zavvi

      <p>Terence Davies' passionate and poetic love letter to his native city was one of the sensations of this year's Cannes Film Festival. A heart-stirring meditation on time and memory, Davies' first film in almost a decade marks a spectacular return to the spotlight for the director who won world-wide acclaim for his autobiographical classics Distant Voices, Still Lives (1988) and The Long Day Closes (1992). Images of Liverpool past and present are magically combined with a wonderfully rich selection of music (ranging from Peggy Lee to Mahler, Handel to The Hollies), voices, radio clips, and the director's own voice-over narration. The result is a powerful evocation of the director's youth in post-war Britain and a reflection on how his home city - and the world at large - have changed over the years. Davies is regarded by many as Britain's greatest living director, and this haunting film has been widely hailed as a masterpiece.</p>

Combining extensive archival imagery – television excerpts, home movies, family photos – with specially filmed material and a personally mixed Miles Davis soundtrack, Akomfrah’s filmmaking approach matches the agility of Hall’s intellect, its intimate play with memory, identity and scholarly impulse traversing the changing historical landscape of the second half of the 20th century.

      Birth of a Nation - Centenary Edition

      Zavvi

      <p>2015 marks the centenary of the release of the controversial, yet extremely significant American silent epic, The Birth of a Nation, by D.W. Griffith. Griffith is often considered to be one of the most important figures in the history of cinema having been credited with creating and perfecting cinematic devices such as the flash-back, the iris shot, the mask and cross-cutting. The Birth of a Nation covers a period of several years and is centered on the relationship of two families during the Civil War and Reconstruction-US era. Dividing friends and destroying families, The Civil War is minor in its disruption compared to the anarchy which follows in the black-ruled South post-war. The film was released to great commercial success, being one of the highest grossing films of the Silent era, but was widely-debated and often condemned due to its portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan as a heroic force. The film is attributed to launching the career of Lillian Gish, who worked closely with Griffith for many years, and who was also known as ‘The First Lady of American Cinema’. Extras: Two short films by D W Griffith; The Rose of Kentucky (1911) and The Coward (1911) The Drummer of the 8th (1913) – short film starring future Oscar winning Frank Borzage (A Farewell to Arms) Stolen Glory (1912) – a comedy starring Ford Sterling filmed against the backdrop of a parade of Union Civil War veterans 1930 re-release title sequence and short archival introduction by D W Griffith Photoplay orchestral recording sessions Out-takes and original camera tests D W Griffith on Lux Radio Theatre BFI Southbank roundtable discussion (2015) A Personal Appreciation of Birth of a Nation by film scholar Melvyn Stokes Fully illustrated booklet with news essays and full credits Cast and Crew: Directed by D W Griffith (Intolerance, Orphans of the Storm) Cast: Lillian Gish (Duel in the Sun, The Comedians)</p>

      The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (Includes DVD)

      Zavvi

      <p>Receiving its long-overdue High Definition premiere, as part of this Dual Format edition, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie is John Cassavetes' uncompromising character study of a gangster. Cassavetes regular Ben Gazzara (Anatomy of a Murder, Husbands, The Big Lebowski), plays a seedy Los Angeles strip-club owner who runs up heavy gambling debts which he arranges to wipe out by murdering an elderly Chinese gangster. Also amongst the cast is Cassavetes regular Seymour Cassel (Faces, Rushmore) and legendary cult actor Timothy Carey (The Killing, Paths of Glory).

      <p>When Allied forces liberated the Nazi concentration camps in 1944-45, their terrible discoveries were recorded by army and newsreel cameramen, revealing for the first time the full horror of what had happened. Making use of British, Soviet and American footage, the Ministry of Information’s Sidney Bernstein (later founder of Granada Television) aimed to create a documentary that would provide lasting, undeniable evidence of the Nazis’ unspeakable crimes. He commissioned a wealth of British talent, including editor Stewart McAllister, writer and future cabinet minister Richard Crossman and, as treatment advisor, his friend Alfred Hitchcock. Yet, despite initial support from the British and US Governments, the film was shelved, and only now, 70 years on, has it been restored and completed by Imperial War Museums. This eloquent, lucid documentary by André Singer (executive producer of the award-winning The Act of Killing) tells the extraordinary story of the filming of the camps and the fate of Bernstein’s project, using original archive footage and eyewitness testimonies.
