Another fine list of DVDs. If you want, we can perhaps start a thread for the Ceylan films.

Good Idea especially as most have already been covered. His short film 'Koza' is an extra on the R2 release of 'Uzak' (Distant) from Artificial Eye.

In case anyone's interested, Distant's Region-1 disc from New Yorker is a port of the AE, and it includes the same extra features.

Just ordered Mikio Naruse - Three Films:

Repast (1951)
Sound Of The Mountain (1954)
Flowing (1956)

Hopefully I'll get some of my previous orders tomorrow.

As you can see, I've started a thread for the two Ceylan films. Feel free to review Clouds of May if you like. It's been too long since I've watched it and I currently don't have the time to do so again.

Gladly, once they arrive. I've been informed that they should start turning up early next week, delays have been put down to staff holidays etc.

In the meantime I had a surprise yesterday from my sons (late father's day pressie).

Labyrinth of Passion - Almodovar and the Hanzo the Razor trilogy. Should be mildly entertaining to say the least.

Cheers Trev.

Still awaiting my previous orders but have had confirmation that they're on the way.

Picked up some vids from the library 8 for 3 G.B.P:

Night Sun (1990) - Paolo Taviani, Vittorio Taviani.

Nada (1974) - Claude Chabrol

La Route de Corinthe (1967) - Claude Chabrol

L'Argent (1983) - Robert Bresson

L'Homme de Ma Vie (1992) - Jean Charles Tacchella

Men, Women: A User's Manual (1996) - Claude Lelouch

Sansho Dayu (1954) - Kenji Mizoguchi

The Lower Depths (1957) - Akira Kurosawa.

May not be a great selection overall but at that price, who could complain.

Cheers Trev.

Looks good to me

I've bought around 100 new DVDs in the last 3 months, amongst others some Thailand and HongKong Shawbrothers DVDs, The rest is just same old, any bargains I could get that interested me.

But I also bought an old VHS at the flea market on Saturday. Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "Chinese Roulette". I'll check it out in August when I'll be staying at my parents'.

Finally had a couple of deliveries:

Jodorowsky the Essential Collection

Le Silence De La Mer (1949) - Jean-Pierre Melville

Naruse - Volume 1.

A lot more to come but I'm happy they're finally starting to arrive.

Cheers Trev.

Less than 2 weeks after seeing it in the cinema, Close To Home - Dir. Vardit Bilu, Dalia Hager (2005) - Soda Pictures.

A little lacking in extras, just a short q+a with the directors plus trailers.

Cheers Trev.
