Bergman Island (#1170)

Criterion | 2021 | 113 min | Not Rated
Directed by Mia Hansen-Løve

Writer-director Mia Hansen-Løve embarks on a luminous summertime odyssey to the home of Ingmar Bergman for her seventh feature, a graceful, shape-shifting tale about the interplay of life and art and the ways in which stories are born. In search of inspiration for their current filmmaking projects, Chris (Vicky Krieps) and her partner (Tim Roth) travel to the remote island of Fårö, Sweden, where Bergman lived and worked for decades. There, the spirit of the cinema master looms as Chris confronts her complicated relationships to work, men, motherhood, and her artistic influences. Also featuring radiant performances from Mia Wasikowska and Anders Danielsen Lie, Bergman Island is a rich deconstruction of the mysteries of the creative process and the journey that every film takes from thought to page to screen.

The Great: Season One & Two

Paramount Pictures | 2020-2021 | 1064 min | Not Rated

The Great is a satirical, comedic drama about the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest-reigning female ruler in Russia’s history.


The Great: Season One is a satirical, comedic drama about the rise Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning). From creator and Academy Award Nominated writer, Tony McNamara, comes a fictionalized, fun and anachronistic story of an idealistic, romantic young girl who honors an arranged marriage to the mercurial Russian Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult). Instead of love and sunshine, she finds a dangerous, depraved and backward world. Catherine becomes driven to change Russia and fulfill her destiny.


The Great returns in Season Two from Golden Globe and Academy Award nominee Tony McNamara (The Favourite). Catherine takes the throne for her own–but if she thought coup-ing her husband was difficult, it’s nothing compared to the realities of liberating a Russia that doesn’t want to be. She’ll battle her court, her team, even her own mother to bring the Enlightenment to Russia. Two-time Emmy Award-winning actor Gillian Anderson joins stars Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult for all the fun!

Vinegar Syndrome | 1986 | 85 min | Rated R

Dr. Edward Pretorius, an acclaimed physicist, has perfected his newest invention: the Resonator, a machine which allows those near to it to glimpse life not visible to the naked eye.

However, after the machine malfunctions during a highly sensitive experiment and Pretorius is found brutally murdered, Crawford is fingered as the primary suspect. Crawford, now confined to an asylum, becomes the ward of Dr. Katherine McMichaels, who takes a special interest in his tales of the strange creatures able to be seen while the machine is operating and convinces him to help her rebuild the device, woefully unaware of the terrifying, hidden world she is about to enter…

Lovecraft’s uniquely unsettling tales of of terror.

Kino Lorber | 1972 | 99 min | Not Rated
Directed by Peter Newbrook

Blending elements of Gothic horror with the more contemporary ingredients of steampunk, The Asphyx has emerged from obscurity to become a cult favorite of the sci-fi/fantasy genre. Utilizing an experimental photographic device, a scientist (Robert Stephens, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes) captures what appears to be the image of the Asphyx—the ancient Greek spirit of the dead. With the help of his adopted son (Robert Powell, The Italian Job), he conducts further experiments and conceives of a way to harness the Asphyx and thereby gain immortality. But, as every visionary scientist should know, defying the laws of the natural and spiritual world unleashes dreadful consequences. Sumptuously shot by director Peter Newbrook and cinematographer Freddie Young (Lawrence of Arabia), The Asphyx unfolds into one of the most unusual and haunting supernatural chillers of British cinema. This special edition also includes the extended 99-minute cut of film.

The Lukas Moodysson Collection

Arrow | 1998-2013 | 7 Movies | 805 min | Not Rated
Directed by Lukas Moodysson

Ever since his debut was heralded as “a young master’s first masterpiece” by none other than Ingmar Bergman, director Lukas Moodysson has been hailed internationally as one of Sweden’s greatest filmmaking talents, delighting and confounding audiences in equal measure.

Moodysson’s first film, Fucking Åmål (released overseas as Show Me Love), tells the story of awkward smalltown teenager Agnes and her crush on popular classmate Elin, which unexpectedly blossoms into reallife romance; it was quickly heralded as a new queer cinema touchstone and one of the most authentic portrayals of youthful relationships on film. He swiftly followed this with the bittersweet, satirical 1970sset Together, in which the inhabitants of a commune try to reconcile their ideals with their hearts’ desires.

Having made a name for himself as the new master of tragicomic, feelgood humanism, Moodysson suddenly frustrated expectations with a trio of startlingly confrontational works: the hauntingly bleak Lilya 4ever, based on a reallife case of a Russian girl sold into sex trafficking in Sweden; the abrasive and semiimprovised A Hole in My Heart, detailing the messy (un)making of an amateur porn video; and the avantgarde Container, narrated in its English version by Jena Malone (Donnie Darko).

After making his mainstream Englishlanguage debut with the expansive Mammoth, starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Michelle Williams, Moodysson returned to his roots with We Are The Best! (based on a graphic novel by his wife and ‘consigliere’ Coco), the charming and funny tale of three schoolgirls starting a punk band in early1980s Stockholm.

Available together for the first time, Moodysson’s eclectic filmography can now be appreciated as the work of a singular filmmaking voice, as avowedly uncompromising and unabashedly political as it is keenly observed, deeply felt and frequently hilarious.

  • Original DTSHD MA 5.1 surround and 2.0 stereo mixes for all seven films
  • Optional English subtitles for all films, plus English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing on Mammoth and the English version of Container

Powerhouse Films | 1967-2015 | 26 Movies | Rated BBFC: 18
Directed by Michael J Murphy

Amongst overlooked filmmakers, British director Michael J Murphy ranks as one of the most sorely neglected. Having cut his teeth on a variety of homemade 8mm shorts, he had completed three feature-length productions by the age of eighteen. Over the next five decades, Murphy would go on to make many more films across a variety of genres, dividing his production time between Greece, Portugal, and the UK, with family, friends, and local stage performers becoming his regular cast and crew in exchange for holidays in the sun.

Despite this prolific output – a total of more than thirty completed films over a half-century, of which twenty-six survive – Murphy’s work remains rarely seen and little championed. Fitfully available on videotape, and barely represented on DVD, this comprehensive and long-gestating ten-disc Blu-ray collection seeks to rectify that situation once and for all. Boasting all-new 2K restorations from archival 16mm and 8mm elements, as well as a number of new digital captures from Murphy’s personal tape masters, this extensive retrospective of the obsessive auteur’s work is bolstered by a wealth of bonus features, including surviving fragments from lost works, and a 120-page book, all of which provides the definitive account of the weird and wonderful worlds of Britain’s great unheralded DIY filmmaker.

  • NEW 2K RESTORATIONS by Powerhouse Films, using film elements from the Murphy archives, of Tristan and Iseult (1970), Happy Ever After (1974), Secrets (1977), Almost a Movie (1979), The Cell (1980), Stay (1980), Death in the Family (1981), Invitation to Hell (1983), The Last Night (1983), Bloodstream (1985), Moonchild (1989), Torment (1990), Atlantis (1991), Road to Nowhere (1993), Tristan (version one, 1999), ZK3 (2012), Nekros: Isle of the Dead (2014), and The Return of Alan Strange (2015)

Maigret: Season Two

Kino Lorber | 1961-1962 | Season 2 | Not Rated
Directed by John Harrison, Gerard Glaister, Andrew Osborn, & Terence Williams

Long-awaited and unseen anywhere for decades, Maigret (1960-1963) is the definitive adaptation of Georges Simenon’s world famous novels. This BBC television production stars Rupert Davies as Commissaire Jules Maigret, the dogged French detective. Though Simenon’s books have been adapted many times, Davies’s celebrated, BAFTA-winning portrayal won the approval of Simenon himself, who stated: “At last, I have found the perfect Maigret!” This three disc-set includes all 13 episodes of Season 2, in which Maigret reckons with the “Death of a Butcher,” “The Lost Sailor,” and various other vexing cases that only the moody Maigret can solve. Maigret has been remastered in High Definition from original film elements and is featured here in its original fullscreen TV format.
