COMPETITION - Win a set of our March releases!

Steve-Eureka

Easter is just around the corner, Spring is finally approaching, there’s another hour of daylight and once again we’re giving 3 lucky people the chance to win a set of our latest releases including Re:Born, The Barefoot Contessa, Shirley: Visions of Reality and Legend of the Mountain.

 

Utilising an unorthodox form of close-quarters combat (referred to by the director and lead actor as “Zero Range Combat”), Re:Born is a breath-taking, no-frills martial arts film featuring fast, furious and expertly choreographed fight sequences and features some of the most stunningly choreographed martial-arts fight sequences in recent years.

 

A high point in the already success-laden career of writer-director Joseph L. Mankiewicz (A Letter to Three WivesAll About Eve), and one of the most glamorous and extravagant films from Hollywood’s Golden Age, The Barefoot Contessa is a tragic drama about the tumultuous rise and fall of fictional Hollywood actress Maria Vargas (Ava Gardner). Also featuring Edmund O’Brien in an Oscar winning role as a duplicitous publicist, and featuring cinematography from the legendary Jack CardiffThe Barefoot Contessa was a massive success upon release.

 

Austrian filmmaker, architect and experimental artist Gustav Deutsch reproduces 13 of American painter Edward Hopper’s oil paintings on film in Shirley: Visions of Reality, connecting them through the fictitious story of a red-haired New York actress through the years 1931-63. Presented as a series of nearly static tableaux’s, with stunning cinematography from Jerzy Palacz, Shirley: Visions of Reality is an experimental tour-de-force.

 

Although most commonly associated with the Wuxia genre, in 1979 King Hu directed the epic fantasy-horror, Legend of the Mountain. Heavily influenced by traditional Chinese aesthetics and Zen Buddhist philosophy, it has come to be regarded as one of his greatest filmmaking achievements. Adapted from a Song Dynasty folk tale, Legend of the Mountain exemplifies King Hu’s masterful command of spectacular visuals and philosophical insights into life and existence. Heavily edited upon release, the film has now been fully restored to its original length in stunning 4K.

 

To enter simply follow the instructions in the box below. Competition closes at MIDNIGHT on 6 April 2018. Terms and Conditions apply.

 

Good luck!
