Films by Geoffrey Jones Since the 1950s Geoffrey Jones has been making films that look, sound and feel like nothing else.The Rhythm of Film describes a key element to what makes his work so special. In such films as BTFs Snow and Rail, and Trinidad and Tobago images react, combine and dance together to create a living, pulsing journey. In his final BTF film Locomotion the entire history of the British railways is illustrated through an accelerating frenzy of rhythm. One surprising fact is that Jones has most often used the Industrial Short to express his art in this way, but his unique vision is also revealed in full with such personal works as his Seasons Project and A Chair-a-Plane films. With his extraordinary marriage of images, music and rhythm, Geoffrey Jones ranks alongside such luminaries as Norman McLaren, and Len Lye and remains one of Britain's true film artists.

With eleven Oscars on its mantelpiece, star-making turns from Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, and a soundtrack that continues to sell, Titanic's place in movie history has long since been assured. The film itself needs little introduction. Epic in ambition and scale, Titanic tells the story of the sole voyage of the infamous ship, focusing its story on a young couple from different walks of life. It's a feature whose merits have been vigorously debated since its release, but the consensus remains hugely positive. And there's both a compelling drama and a modern day disaster movie classic also mixed in.--Jon Foster

  8. Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play. Boxing In and Out of the Ring reveals that talent, determination and courage make a champion boxer--plus the ability to get the right bribes to the right people at the right time. The film delves into a world of power, corruption and lies that would make Machiavelli blush. It focuses in particular on the astonishing interwoven tales of the 2001 FBI investigation into sanctioning body the IBF that uncovered a cash-for-title-shots scandal, and the multi-million dollar business showdown that grew out of the first Rahman/Lewis world title fight. At the heart of both stories is Rahman's South African-born promoter Cedric Kushner, and it is Kushner's performance that make this such compulsive viewing. He is a superb subject for comic-tragic drama: at once a charming, dryly amusing soul and at the same time an icy-cold operator, closing in on the biggest payday of his or anyone else's career. The camera goes behind the scenes at his rather shambolic little office, to see him excitedly building a $120m deal for Rahman/Lewis II, and is on hand when a certain Mr King steals Rahman and the fight from under Kushner's nose. Weighing in at an hour and a half, this is a substantial film, with strong journalistic credentials--the expert gallery features leading boxing historians and commentators like Thomas Hauser--and makes for very entertaining viewing. Chapters on the history of boxing business, including mob involvement in champs like Sonny Liston, and the rise of Don King, touch on some well-worn fight-game tales, and are liberally peppered with snippets of vintage ring footage, but overall there's not much boxing to be seen here--though as this film suggests the real fight is outside the ropes.

  13. Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play. Rare is the film in movie-history that can announce the entire movement of its 'plot' with its title alone. But Pialat's second feature, Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble [We Won't Grow Old Together] does exactly that, encapsulating all the turmoil, and the final end-point, of a couple who among themselves once made a commitment -- and in living together will come to make another one yet. Jean (Jean Yanne, of Godard's Weekend) and Catherine (Marlène Jobert, of Godard's Masculin Féminin) are the couple whose every move charts an advancement deeper into an emotional warzone. Theirs is the classic and the tragic case of an emotional abuse centred around a perplexing, but powerful, interdependency. At last the point arrives that determines the relationship, with all its weekend holidays, its apologies and submissions, can go no further -- and, in a final shot of genius, Pialat discloses all the ways in which the future might be at once liberated, and enslaved, by the past. Based on a novel by Pialat himself, and on the trauma of his own personal life in the years leading up to the film, Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble was a smash-hit at the time of its release -- and yet is arguably one of the most upsetting films ever made. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Pialat's second feature masterpiece, accompanied with an array of supplements, for the first time on DVD in the UK. As part of the ongoing Masters of Cinema Series releases by Maurice Pialat, the DVD of Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble is released on 24 August 2009. ******** Special Edition Including: * La Camargue (1966) - A short 6-minute essay-documentary by Maurice Pialat on the region in which much of the action of Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble unfolds. * A 19-minute 2003 video interview with star Marlène Jobert about the film, conducted by
