  Farewell Larry Cohen [read more]
  Cult auteur dies aged 77
  Larry Cohen, the proud New Yorker whose films brimmed with wild ideas that did not always match his budgets, has passed away, it has been announced. He had his start in television in the 1950s, writing countless scripts in his incredible work rate, and in the sixties his profile was raised sufficiently to create his own series, Western Branded and sci-fi thriller The Invaders.

It was only a matter of time before he started directing his material, and the 1970s saw him helm horror (It's Alive), science fiction (God Told Me To) and blaxploitation (Black Caesar and its sequel Hell Up in Harlem). The 1980s were fruitful too, with favourites Q, The Stuff, Best Seller and Maniac Cop flowing from his typewriter, leading to the 1990s when he wrote The Ambulance, Body Snatchers and Guilty as Sin, among many others, also directing Original Gangstas. With a truly maverick approach where what was on the screen justified almost everything it took to get it up there, he was a hero to independent genre filmmakers across the globe.

  The Woman in the Window on Blu-ray [read more]
  About as noir as noir gets
  Eureka Entertainment will release THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW; Fritz Lang's mysterious, melodramatic film-noir starring Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennett, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK on 20 May 2019.

One of legendary director Fritz Lang's first noir films, The Woman in the Window is also rightfully considered one of the most important examples of the genre, a landmark movie that became one of the initial representations of noir first singled out by French critics after WWII. A triumph for Lang, legendary writer/producer Nunnally Johnson (The Grapes of Wrath), and leading man Edward G. Robinson (shedding his earlier gangster roles to portray a love-struck obsessive), the film remains a classic American nail-biter.

Robinson is Richard Wanley, a successful psychiatrist biding his time while his wife and children are on vacation when he encounters beautiful Alice (a radiant Joan Bennett), who bears an uncanny resemblance to the subject of a portrait he had just admired. When Richard and Alice retire to her home, her wealthy, jealous boyfriend intrudes, and is killed after a struggle. Alice convinces Richard to cover up the crime, but as Richard's district attorney friend (Raymond Massey) investigates and the boyfriend's bodyguard (Dan Duryea) begins to apply pressure to Richard, the walls begin to close in...

With a surprising climax years ahead of its time, The Woman in the Window is suspenseful film noir at its most seductive, while also serving as an excellent companion piece to the following year's Scarlet Street, which reunited Lang with Robinson, Bennett, and Duryea in strikingly similar roles. The exclusive trailer is above.

  The Criterion Collection for June 2019
  Bang zoom take me to the Moon
  The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are delighted to confirm the titles to be released on Blu-ray in June 2019.

On 10 June comes DAZED AND CONFUSED, among the best teen films ever made, directed by Richard Linklater and a launch pad for a number of future stars, it's less about "the best years of our lives" and more about the boredom, angst and excitement of teenagers in waiting.

17 June brings THE HEIRESS, a piercing character study riven by emotional uncertainty and lacerating cruelty, it's a triumph of classic Hollywood filmmaking at its most psychologically nuanced.

On 24 June, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing, FOR ALL MANKIND is released. A radical, visually dazzling work of cinema made about the twenty-four men who first travelled to the moon, told in their words, in their voices, using the images of their experiences.

  Mr Topaze on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  The film Peter Sellers didn't want you to see!
  Peter Sellers directs and stars in this bittersweet character comedy, based on a Marcel Pagnol play and chosen by the British public in an online vote in 2016 to be digitised by the BFI National Archive. Described by Sellers' biographer Roger Lewis as a 'lost classic', Mr Topaze will be released in a Dual Format Edition (Blu-ray/DVD) on 15 April 2019. Extras include The Running Jumping & Standing Still Film (1960) directed by Richard Lester, a variety of interviews and more.

Mr Topaze marked Peter Sellers' directorial feature debut and teamed him with his The Ladykillers cohort and future Pink Panther comic foil Herbert Lom, in a stellar cast that also features Nadia Gray, Leo McKern, Billie Whitelaw and John Le Mesurier.

Playing the eponymous Mr Topaze, a poor, provincial French schoolteacher slowly corrupted by big business, Sellers is at the peak of his powers. This melancholy character comedy, rarely seen since its release and available here for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD, is essential viewing for fans of Sellers' unique genius.
