  The Intruder on Blu-ray
  Jack the lad
  An excellent early feature from future Bond director Guy Hamilton, this tense drama boasts outstanding performances from Jack Hawkins, as a distinguished former officer, and Michael Medwin, as the wartime hero he endeavours to save from a life of crime. Featuring strong support from Dennis Price, and George Cole, The Intruder is presented here in a brand-new High Definition transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Wolf Merton, a London stockbroker with a fine war record as colonel of a tank regiment, returns to his Belgravia home to find that there is an intruder in the house - a young armed thug called Ginger Edwards, who he remembers well as one of the most fearless and spirited troopers under his leadership. But why has Ginger taken up housebreaking? And will Merton be able to help him to return to a more honourable way of life?

Release date: 20 April 2020.

  Bacurau on Blu-ray, DVD and digital [read more]
  Battle of Brazil
  Curated global streaming service and theatrical film distributor MUBI is delighted to announce the Home Entertainment release of the critically acclaimed, 2019 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize Winner BACURAU, available digitally on MUBI TVOD, Amazon TVOD/EST, iTunes EST/TVOD from 18 April and to own on DVD & Blu-ray on 27 April 2020. Available to pre-order now at the link above.

Bacurau, a small settlement in Brazil's remote backcountry, is shaken by the death of its elderly matriarch. But something strange is happening in the village, and there’s little time for mourning. The water supply has been cut off, animals are stampeding through the streets, and empty coffins are turning up on the roadside. One morning, the villagers wake up to find their home has disappeared from satellite maps completely. Under threat from an unknown enemy, Bacurau braces itself for a bloody, brutal fight for survival.

With unforgettable performances from Bárbara Colen, Udo Kier and Sonia Braga, this is an audacious, original and spectacularly violent blend of neo-Western, revenge thriller and political allegory. Tipping its hat to Sergio Leone and John Carpenter, it's a whirlwind of genre twists and surrealist turns guaranteed to leave you punch-drunk and reeling.

Following the critically-acclaimed NEIGHBOURING SOUNDS and AQUARIUS, Kleber Mendonça Filho shares directorial credit with long-time collaborator Juliano Dornelles in this uniquely hallucinatory and satirical parable.

  Farewell Allen Garfield [read more]
  Cult character actor dies at 80
  The death of cult actor Allen Garfield has been announced; he died of coronavirus. One of the most distinctive performers of the 1970s, he brightened many a movie that generated a fervent following, having effectively got his start in two Brian De Palma comedies, Greetings and Hi, Mom! He went on to appear in The Owl and the Pussycat with Barbra Streisand, Milos Forman's Taking Off, a memorable cameo in Woody Allen's Bananas, a rare starring role in the sleazy Cry Uncle, The Organization, uncredited in Deadhead Miles, De Palma's flop Get to Know Your Rabbit, with Robert Redford in The Candidate, terrific in Slither, Busting and Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation, as well as Robert Altman's Nashville, Gable and Lombard, Mother, Jugs and Speed, cash-in movie Skateboard, The Brink's Job, then into the 1980s with The Stunt Man, changing his name for a few titles to Goorwitz (his birth name).

One Trick Pony with Paul Simon was next, then Continental Divide with John Belushi, Coppola's One from the Heart, Wim Wenders' The State of Things, Get Crazy, The Cotton Club, Beverly Hills Cop II, Let It Ride, and the 1990s arrived, He appeared in Dick Tracy, Until the End of the World, and many lesser efforts, but was having a renaissance when while filming Roman Polanski's The Ninth Gate, he suffered a stroke. Another a few years later ended his career, living out his days in a nursing home, a great loss to the industry. Superb at playing shifty, dodgy, fast-talking rogues, it was always a pleasure to see him, and though he had not graced the screen in years, he will be missed.

  Mystery woman
  Following three series of the internationally acclaimed, smash-hit detective drama Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, the fabulous Miss Fisher returns in her very own feature-length adventure Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Tears.

The fantastic Miss Phryne Fisher (Davis), lady detective extraordinaire, is perfectly at home wielding a pearl-handled pistol and her dagger-sharp wit on the backstreets of Melbourne... but a new case sees her spanning the world from Australia to London and Palestine, where she frees Shirin Abbas, a young Bedouin girl (Izabella Yena) from her unjust imprisonment in Jerusalem. In doing so, Phryne begins to unravel a decade-old mystery concerning priceless emeralds, ancient curses and the truth behind the suspicious disappearance of Shirin's forgotten tribe.

  The Green Man on Blu-ray, DVD and digital [read more]
  Killer sense of humour
  STUDIOCANAL is delighted to announce the release of a newly restored version of the classic British black comedy, THE GREEN MAN.

Starring the scintillating Alastair Sim (A Christmas Carol, School for Scoundrels), directed by Robert Day ('The Avengers') and with a BAFTA nominated screenplay by Sidney Gilliat and Frank Launder (The Lady Vanishes), this enormously entertaining farce originally released in 1956, will be available to own on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital on May 18.

Supporting Sim are an exemplarity cast of the era that includes George Cole (The Happiest Days of Your Life), Terry-Thomas (School for Scoundrels), Jill Adams (Private's Progress) and Raymond Huntley (Night Train to Munich). A farce that ticks all the genre's boxes (mistaken identities, compromising positions, much panicking and slamming of doors), the film makes an interesting companion piece to Ealing's The Ladykillers (1955).

Looking better than ever before thanks to the new restoration and bundled with brand new bonus content, THE GREEN MAN is a welcome addition to the Vintage Classics collection. Pre-order at the link above.
