Donna Deitch’s tender, ground‐breaking debut, a landmark in queer cinema and a triumph of independent filmmaking … The swooning and sensual first narrative feature by Donna Deitch, Desert Hearts was ground‐breaking upon its 1985 release: a love story about two women, made entirely independently, on a self‐financed shoestring budget, by a woman. In the 1959‐set film, an adaptation of a beloved novel by Jane Rule, straitlaced East Coast professor Vivian Bell (The Colour of Money’s Helen Shaver) arrives in Reno to file for divorce but winds up catching the eye of someone new, the younger free spirit Cay (Manhunter’s Patricia Charbonneau), touching off a slow seduction that unfolds against a breath‐taking desert landscape. With undeniable chemistry between its two leads, an evocative jukebox soundtrack, and vivid cinematography by Robert Elswit (Punch‐Drunk Love), Desert Hearts beautifully exudes a sense of tender yearning and emotional candour. Features: New, restored 4K digital transfer, supervised by cinematographer Robert Elswit, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Audio commentary from 2007 featuring director Donna Deitch
THE MOST INDELIBLE ADAPTATION OF THE CLASSIC NOVEL, IN A NEW SPECIAL EDITION! In the hands of the renowned experimental theatre director PETER BROOK, William Golding’s legendary novel on the primitivism lurking beneath civilization becomes a film as raw and ragged as the lost boys at its centre. Taking an innovative documentary-like approach, Brook shot Lord of the Flies with an off-the-cuff naturalism, seeming to record a spontaneous eruption of its characters’ ids. The result is a rattling masterpiece, as provocative as its source material. Special Features: New, restored 4K digital film transfer, supervised by cameraman and editor Gerald Feil, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Audio commentary featuring director Peter Brook, producer Lewis Allen, director of photography Tom Hollyman, and Feil Audio recordings of William Golding reading from his novel Lord of the Flies, accompanied by the corresponding scenes from the film Deleted scene, with optional commentary and reading by Golding Interview with Brook from 2008 Collection of behind-the-scenes material, featuring home movies, screen tests, outtakes, and stills New interview with Feil Excerpt from Feil’s 1972 documentary The Empty Space, showcasing Brook’s theatre methods Something Queer in the Warehouse, a piece composed of never-before-seen footage shot by the boy actors during production, with new voice-over by Tom Gaman, who played Simon Trailer PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Geoffrey Macnab and an excerpt from Brook’s book The Shifting Point
Luchino Visconti’s sublime meditation on mortality and desire, in a major new restoration. Based on the classic novella by Thomas Mann, this late‐career masterpiece from Luchino Visconti (The Leopard) is a meditation on the nature of art, the allure of beauty, and the inescapability of death. A fastidious composer reeling from a disastrous concert, Gustav von Aschenbach (Dirk Bogarde, in an exquisitely nuanced performance) travels to Venice to recover. There, he is struck by a vision of pure beauty in the form of a young boy (Björn Andrésen), his infatuation developing into an obsession even as rumours of a plague spread through the city. Setting Mann’s story of queer desire and bodily decay against the sublime music of Gustav Mahler, Death in Venice is one of cinema’s most exalted literary adaptations, as sensually rich as it is allegorically resonant. Features: New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Luchino Visconti: Life as in a Romance, a 2008 documentary about Visconti, featuring actors Burt Lancaster, Silvana Mangano, and Marcello Mastroianni; filmmakers Francesco Rosi and Franco Zeffirelli Alla ricerca di Tadzio, a 1970 programme on Visconti’s efforts to cast the role of Tadzio New programme featuring literature and cinema scholar Stefano Albertini Interview from 2006 with costume designer Piero Tosi Excerpt from a 1990 programme about the music in Visconti’s films, featuring Bogarde and actor Marisa Berenson Television broadcast from 1971 in which Visconti discusses the film Visconti’s Venice, a short 1970 behind‐the‐scenes documentary featuring Visconti and Bogarde Trailer PLUS: An essay by critic Dennis Lim
Set in Mexico City during the early 50s, Queer follows William Lee's hopeless pursuit of desire from bar to bar in the American expatriate scene. As Lee breaks down, the trademark Burroughsian voice emerges; a maniacal mix of self-lacerating humor and the Ugly American at his ugliest. Burroughs' only realist love story, Queer is a haunting tale of possession and exorcism. 1. Language: English. Narrator: T. Ryder Smith, Andrew Garman.
