The particularly brutal rape assault of a sixteen year-old schoolgirl in a wooded common provokes Det. Chief Supt. Velyan (Frank Finlay - Casanova) into employing unorthodox measures to catch the maniac. He listens intently to Doctor Greg Lomax's (James Laurenson - Spooks) rudimentary profiling technique in the hope that it will give him insight into the man's behaviour, which is obviously intensifying and escalating when a second schoolgirl is both raped and murdered. This time the killer was careless, however, as Julie west (Suzy Kendall - Fear is the Key, the Sandwich Man), the school's art mistress, saw him when he drove into the Common in pursuit of his second victim. Putting her own life in extreme jeopardy, she sketches the face she saw and determines to catch the killer.Not seen since its original cinema release in 1971, this hard-hitting psychological thriller is tautly directed by Sidney Hayers (Mister Jerico, The Avengers) from a script by BAFTA-nominated John Kruse (Hell Drivers, The Saint)., The particularly brutal rape assault of a sixteen year-old schoolgirl in a wooded common provokes Det.

Before he arrived in Hollywood to leave his indelible (and inimitable) mark on timeless comedies like Trouble in Paradise and The Shop Around The Corner, Ernst Lubitsch created an expansive body of work in Germany that proved to be as varied in tone as it was sophisticated in its measure of man and woman. This set collects six restored works from the silent phase of Lubitsch s career, and casts new light on the director both as a fully-formed comic master, and as a virtuoso of cinematographic technique. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present these six works by Ernst Lubitsch for the first time ever on Blu-ray. BLU-RAY SPECIAL FEATURES: High-definition restored transfers of all six films Original German intertitles with optional English subtitles Robert Fischer s 2006 feature-length documentary Ernst Lubitsch in Berlin: From Schönhauser Allee to Hollywood Exclusive concertina score for Die Puppe, by Bernard Wrigley PLUS: A booklet containing liner notes for all six features by film-writers David Cairns, Anna Thorngate, and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
The late, great Czech filmmaker V ra Chytilová, followed the success of her ground-breaking exercise in anarchic cinema DAISIES (1966) with the even more extraordinary FRUIT OF PARADISE. An experimental, densely symbolic retelling of the Adam and Eve story, Chytilová utilizes every cinematic tool to create a ravishing tapestry of ideas, textures, and visual tropes. Cementing Chytilová s reputation as cine-anarchist, FRUIT OF PARADISE was condemned by the authorities, banned from export and the funds withheld from Chytilová so that she would be powerless to realise her vehicles of nihilism . Unseen for many years outside of its native Czechoslovakia the film is a cornerstone of the Czech New Wave and remains a stunning tour-de-force of colour, technique and formalism. Released for the first time ever in the UK, the FRUIT OF PARADISE is presented from a new HD digital transfer with restored picture and sound, and also includes a new HD restoration of V ra Chytilová s renowned 1961 short film CEILING (Strop) - plus an accompanying Booklet featuring a new essay by author, Czech cinema expert and film programmer Peter Hames Chytilová's film is as visually stunning and thrillingly experimental as her previous work DAISIES All Movie Guide Luridly subversive... impossible to summarize and hard to resist Village Voice Chytilova's wild, extravagant, and ravishing romp... intoxicating on a sensual level Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader An audacious combination of allegorical narrative and the avant-garde... a brilliantly executed aesthetic exercise. It is formalism at its most beautiful Daniel Bird, Central Europe Review. Extras: All new HD digital transfer + short film Ceiling (Strop) Special Features: Booklet essay by Peter Hames
Director Robert Zemeckis revolutionised the art of animated film in 1998's Who Framed Roger Rabbit by dropping cartoon characters into the same frame with flesh-and-blood actors. In The Polar Express , live action and animation have merged seamlessly, resulting in sparkling super-realism - a landmark technique Zemeckis and his Sony Pictures Imageworks team call Performance Capture. In the story, a disillusioned little boy - just old enough to doubt the existence of Santa Claus - has the adventure of a lifetime one fateful Christmas Eve. Clad in his pyjamas, he climbs aboard a magic train to the North Pole, driven by a kindly train conductor. Among myriad jaw-dropping moments, the train plummets brakeless through crystalline mountains in a simulated roller coaster ride. Going off the rails, skidding sideways, and snaking violently across a frozen lake, the train arrives at the North Pole (a vast, glowing city of brick buildings). At that moment, the car carrying the kids detaches and they're sent tumbling down never-ending chutes and slides until they land in the middle of Santa's Workshop. With its fascinating tale and impressive technical frolics, The Polar Express is destined to become both a holiday classic and a new turning point in the art of animated cinema.

Diese Sammlung, die auf einem Russischen Filmarchiv basiert, beschreibt die Geschichte des Russischen Stummfilmposters einleitend mit einem Poster von Paul Assaturov »Stenka Rasin«, 1908) im Stil der naiven Russischen Bildsprache bis hin zu Plakaten von Rodtschenko und Malewitsch. Die 161 ganzseitig reproduzierten Russischen Filmposter werden chronologisch dargestellt. / This volume, based on rarely seen Russian archives, traces the history of the silent film poster in Russia, starting with a poster designed by Paul Assaturov ('Stenka Razin', 1908) in the style of ancient naive Russian imagery to the latest advertise- ment for a silent movie by Yuri Pimenov from 1934. Full-page reproductions of 161 Russian silent film posters are presented here in chronological order- from the very beginning of the 20th century until the 1930s. These film posters are unique in their approach to representing films, creating new and original images- more evocative than descriptive. The movie is depicted through the use of expressive typography, geometric forms, minimalist illustrations and their distinctive technique of recreating photographs by hand. Works by famous artists of the time such as Alexander Rodchenko, the Stenberg Brothers, Yakov Ruklevsky, Nikolai Prusakov, Alexander Naumov and others are featured. After the Russian revolution in 1917 and the establishment of the Soviet Union in 1922, cinema played an important role in the dissemination of propaganda for the new regime. A large number of Russian movies were produced during the 1920s and early 1930s, and there was also an increase in films imported from other countries. Advertising posters played a major role to attract large audiences. The book reveals the strong influence of modernist art movements such as constructivism and Dadaism on these art works.

The film that most firmly established the talent of French director Raymond Bernard before his epic adaptation of Victor Hugo’s Les misérables, Wooden Crosses [Le croix de bois] was widely hailed at the time of its release in 1932 for its searing depiction of the horrors of the European front during World War I; subsequently, Bernard was named soldier of honour of the 39th Infantry Division. Adapted from a novel by Roland Dorgelès (a former corporal of the 39th), Wooden Crosses offers a kaleidoscope of cinematographic technique to present a visceral, enveloping recreation of one regiment’s experience of battlefield hell. (Its entire cast is comprised of war veterans.) It is an epic tapestry that rivals John Ford’s Four Sons and Lewis Milestone’s All Quiet on the Western Front in both its poetry of trauma and steadfastness of conviction that war must be held in contempt. From a gorgeous new Pathé restoration carried out for the centenary for the start of the Great War, Raymond Bernard’s Wooden Crosses retains a ferocity that continues to reverberate across generations. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this new restoration of the film in a special Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) edition. Bonus Features: New HD 1080p presentation of the film from Pathé’s astonishing 2014 restoration Video interview with historian Marc Ferro and film historian Laurent Veray A short documentary on the new restoration Documentary Wooden Crosses: A Sonic Adventure Archival interview with director Raymond Bernard Archival interview with Roland Dorgelès Vintage 1914 newsreels Documentary piece on early 20th century poster artist Adrien Barrère Documentary The Absent Battle, the Omnipresent War 36-PAGE BOOKLET featuring a new and exclusive interview by film critic Emmanuel Burdeau, and rare archival material
