Alfred Hitchcock: The Essential Collection [DVD]
picture
Features:-
Collection of four classic films directed by Alfred Hitchcock. 'Rear Window' (1954) follows photo-journalist L.B. 'Jeff' Jeffries (James Stewart)'s recuperation from a broken leg in his Greenwich Village apartment. The wheelchair-bound Jeff spends his time observing his neighbours through a telephoto lens, bestowing them with nicknames and growing familiar with their daily routines. Things become notably less light-hearted when Jeff becomes obsessed with the notion that Lars Thorwald (Raymond Burr), who lives in the apartment opposite, has murdered his wife. Since he is unable to investigate himself, he seeks the assistance of his socialite girlfriend, Lisa (Grace Kelly), and the pair plunge into a dangerous amateur investigation. In 'The Birds' (1963) spoiled socialite Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) falls in love with lawyer Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor) after they meet in a bird shop. Melanie pursues him across the water to his Bodega Bay home to offer him the gift of a lovebird. Inexplicably, she is attacked by a gull on her way back, the first of a series of attacks by birds that mass in their thousands overhead. Melanie, Mitch and the other inhabitants of Bodega find themselves facing a desperate struggle for survival in a classic tale of terror from the air. 'Vertigo' (1958) follows troubled San Francisco cop Scottie (James Stewart). When his fear of heights indirectly causes the death of a colleague, Scottie makes the decision to retire from the police force. Unfortunately, his next employment provides little relief from the phobic tendencies that haunt him. Hired by magnate Gavin Elster (Tom Helmore) to follow his wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak), who Elster believes to be a danger to herself, Scottie becomes bewitched by her to the point of obsession. After he saves her from a suicide attempt, Scottie and Madeleine become romantically entangled, but will the pair be able to steer clear of the destructive impulses that have bound them together? In 'Psycho' (196...

2001 - A Space Odyssey [Blu-ray] [Region Free]
picture
Features:-
Confirming that art and commerce can co-exist, 2001: A Space Odyssey was the biggest box-office hit of 1968, remains the greatest science fiction film yet made and is among the most revolutionary, challenging and debated work of the 20th century. It begins within a pre-historic age. A black monolith uplifts the intelligence of a group of apes on the African plains. The most famous edit in cinema introduces the 21st century, and after a second monolith is found on the moon a mission is launched to Jupiter. On the spacecraft are Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Poole (Gary Lockwood), along with the most famous computer in fiction, HAL. Their adventure will be, as per the original title, a "journey beyond the stars". Written by science fiction visionary Arthur C Clarke and Stanley Kubrick, 2001 elevated the SF film to entirely new levels, being rigorously constructed with a story on the most epic of scales. Four years in the making and filmed in 70 mm, the attention to detail is staggering and four decades later barely any aspect of the film looks dated, the visual richness and elegant pacing creating the sense of actually being in space more convincingly than any other film. A sequel, 2010: Odyssey Two (1984) followed, while Solaris (1972), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), The Abyss (1989) and A.I. (2001) are all indebted to this absolute classic which towers monolithically over them all.

On the DVD: There is nothing but the original trailer which, given the status of the film and the existence of an excellent making-of documentary shown on Channel 4 in 2001, is particularly disappointing. Shortly before he died Kubrick supervised the restoration of the film and the production of new 70 mm prints for theatrical release in 2001. Fortunately the DVD has been taken from this material and transferred at the 70 mm ratio of 2.21-1. There is some slight cropping noticeable, but both anamorphically enhanced image and Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack (the film was originally released with a six-channel magnetic sound) are excellent, making this transfer infinitely preferable to previous video incarnations. --Gary S Dalkin

A Clockwork Orange [DVD] [1971]
picture
Features:-
Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play. Stomping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating. Derby-topped teddy-boy hooligan Alex has his own way of having a good time. He has it at the tragic expense of others. Alex's journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen forms the dynamic arc of Stanley Kubrick's future-shock vision of Anthony Burgess' novel. Unforgettable images startling musical counterpoints, the fascinating language used by Alex and his pals - Kubrick shapes them into a shattering whole. Hugely controversial when first released, A Clockwork Orange won the New York Film Critics Best Picture and Director honors and earned four Academy Award nominations, including best picture. The power of its art is such that it still entices, shocks and holds us in its grasp. Actors Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Michael Bates, Adrienne Corri, Aubrey Morris, James Marcus, Mariam Karlin, Steven Berkoff, John Clive & David Prowse Director Stanley Kubrick Certificate 18 years and over Year 1971 Screen Widescreen 1.66:1 Languages English - Dolby Digital (5.1) Additional Languages French ; Italian Subtitles English ; English For The Hard Of Hearing Duration 2 hours 12 minutes (approx) Region Region 2 - Will only play on European Region 2 or multi-region DVD players.

Full Metal Jacket (Deluxe Edition) [DVD] [1987]
picture
Features:-
One of a series of revisionist Vietnam cinema released in the late 1980s, Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket is essentially split into two stories linked by a number of characters. The film follows new recruit Joker (Matthew Modine) and his fellow soldiers through their basic training and into combat in Vietnam. The first half is a chilling portrayal of military brutality and de-humanisation, mainly at the hands of Sgt Hartman (played at a level of staggering intensity by ex-Marine Lee Ermey), that centres around the tragic character of Private Pyle, a young man pushed to the edge of his endurance. The tone of the film is no less harsh when transported to the combat zone as we see the results of the training process in action: the young men turned into unquestioning killing machines. Joker is perhaps the one exception, a soldier with "Born to Kill" written on his helmet who also sports a peace sign on his lapel. But the film finds itself caught in the trap of many of the war movies of the time--how to create audience empathy with characters who are essentially in the wrong. It's a dilemma that Full Metal Jacket never really solves, although as a spectacle the film is a masterpiece. Made in the days before CGI became the norm, the battle sequences--filmed, rather bizarrely, in London's Docklands before its redevelopment--are hugely realistic and are perhaps the key moments of the movie, heightening the disorientation and fear felt by the soldiers. By offering no more than a snapshot of the Vietnam conflict (the action deals with one individual skirmish), Kubrick cleverly leaves any judgement on the war to the audience, although clearly attempting to influence them. The fate of the characters who survive is also left in the balance, but we can perhaps imagine what awaits them.

On the DVD: Part of a series of Kubrick DVD reissues, Full Metal Jacket has been treated to the full remastering and restoration treatment. The battle sequences have benefited the most, gaining a new audio and visual crispness and clarity that adds to their already impressive sense of realism--you can almost feel the heat searing from the screen and the explosions detonating around you. Maybe not the best war film ever made, as some may claim, but certainly one to take you right to the heart of the action. --Phil Udell
