HeyUGuys UK DVD/Blu-ray Round-Up – 13th August

  • HeyUGuys
Last week saw a great handful of international releases make their way onto our shelves, with Shion Sono’s Himizu and David and Stéphane Foenkinos’ Delicacy topping the list. And this week brings us another excellent set of international films for our enjoyment, along with a handful of classics getting the HD treatment.

We’ve also been enjoying the special Blu-ray Steelbook releases from Play.com over the past few months, in tandem with Universal’s 100th Anniversary, and now Paramount are entering the fray with two titles of their own getting a Steelbook re-packaging, for their own Centenary celebrations.

My picks of the week:

Morten Tyldum’s Headhunters.

And the Blu-ray releases of Shion Sono’s Love Exposure & the Steven Spielberg-produced Falling Skies – Season 1.

Tuesday Morning Foreign Region DVD Report: "Permissive," (1970, Lindsay Shonteff)

I really hope there are no major changes of management at the British Film Institute. Like, ever. It's not because I have a long-standing respect for that oft-august body (although I do, I really do). And it's not that I spend a sufficient amount of time in Britain to take advantage of the many services the body offers over there (although I would, if I were spending any particular stretch of time in that place). It's pretty much because I'm thoroughly nuts about the Institute's DVD arm as it's currently constituted, and would love for it to continue doing as it does for as long as I'm around to be thoroughly nuts about it.

It's true that some of the miraculous feats of said arm are due to be reproduced, to some extent, here in the States; the Criterion Collection is coming out with Blu-ray discs of Antonioni's Red Desert and Visconti's The Leopard,

Time? Non-linear? Burroughs? Pkd? What is Anti-clock?

Andy Warhol called this "great!" but until we got an email from one of our readers (thanks dude), I didn't even know it existed. He used words like non-linear, and said fans of Burroughs and Pkd would love this. Oddly, co-director Jane Arden committed suicide 3 years after the film and Jack Bond hasn't done much of anything since.

Anti-Clock, which was released in 1980, has just been restored from the original negative and reissued by the BFI (British Film Institute). I know nothing about this other then what little I can find including a short, grainy clip on youtube, so if you know anything about this, please elaborate. You can purchase the region 2 DVD here.

Sebastianne Saville stars as a young fellow who reacts to the modern, atom-dominated society by withdrawing from it. He 'makes peace' with the threat of nuclear holocaust by wandering aimlessly about, refusing to be bound by minutes,
