  Pasolini Six films 1968-1975 on Blu-ray [read more]
  Catch up before you watch the biopic
  Brutal and uncompromising, the films of controversial director Pier Paolo Pasolini have shocked and outraged audiences for decades, and their power remains undiminished to this day.

Now presented together for the first time, in a Blu-ray box set released by the BFI on 2 November 2015, these six films stand as a testimony to his unique and untameable talents.

In Theorem, a youthful Terence Stamp seduces each member of a bourgeois family. Medea features opera legend Maria Callas in a dark tale of betrayal and revenge. The Decameron, The Canterbury Tales and Arabian Nights form the bawdy ‘Trilogy of Life’, all with scores by the legendary Ennio Morricone. And Pasolini’s final, shocking film, Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom, sees him pushing his art to extremes.

  Mia Madre on Blu-ray and DVD
  Family strife
  Palme d’Or winning director Nanni Moretti (The Son’s Room, The Caiman, We Have a Pope) returns with Mia Madre, a playful, reflective and intelligent drama.

Set in present-day Rome, the story follows Margherita, a filmmaker attempting to balance her work with her family life. Pulled between the demands of a difficult Hollywood actor (John Turturro, in a scene-stealing role), her teenage daughter and the slow decline of her mother’s health, she finds herself struggling to hold everything together. But much like the director’s profession itself, she must stay in control right until the final call…

Winner of numerous awards, including the Ecumenical Jury Prize at Cannes 2015, Mia Madre is a subtle, tender and carefully balanced exploration of love, loss and the pressures of modern life. OUT ON DVD & BLU RAY 7TH DECEMBER.
