On the Silver Globe
Manufacturer: Polart Brand: FACETS VIDEO
"One of cinema's most stunning extravagances and the most frightening art film you will ever see" says Film Comment's Michael Atkinson about this banned science fiction epic by controversial director Andrej Zulawski. The Polish Ministry of Culture halted production on The Silver Globe in 1978 and until the fall of communism in 1986 when Zulawski completed the film it remained both his best-known and least-seen work. In this surreal and disturbing mix of Lord of the Flies and Dune a group of space pioneers starts a colony on the moon. As the adults die off the children revert to primitive forms creating their own myths deities and social classes. Years later a politician from earth arrives and--fulfilling the moon people's prophecy--is hailed as their great messiah.

Your Vice Is A Locked Room And Only I Have The Key (Special Edition) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Arrow Video Brand: Music Video Dist
Loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe s classic tale The Black Cat , Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key, from director Sergio Martino (Torso), weaves the key motifs from Poe s gothic yarn into one of the most sensual films from the Golden era of giallo. Luigi Pistilli (Milano Calibro 9, A Bay of Blood) plays writer Oliviero, an abrasive drunk who amuses himself by holding drunken orgies at his grand country manor much to the displeasure of his long-suffering wife (Anita Strindberg). But this decadence is soon rocked by a series of grisly murders, in which Oliviero finds himself implicated. Notable for giving screen starlet Edwige Fenech her first bad girl role, Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key, with its many unexpected twists and turns, is just as bewitching as its title would suggest. SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS Brand new 2K restoration of the film from the original camera negative Original Italian and English soundtracks in DTS-HD mono audio English subtitles for the Italian soundtrack Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing for the English soundtrack Through the Keyhole a brand new interview with director Sergio Martino Unveiling the Vice making-of retrospective featuring interviews with Martino, star Edwige Fenech and screenwriter Ernesto Gastaldi Dolls of Flesh and Blood: The Gialli of Sergio Martino a visual essay by Michael Mackenzie exploring the director s unique contributions to the giallo genre The Strange Vices...

Manufacturer: FilmRise Brand: FilmRIse
Twice a year, the Italian city of Siena goes crazy for the oldest horse race in the world: the Palio, where strategy, bribery and corruption play as much a part as the skill of the riders. In the eye of the storm stand the jockeys. Loved and loathed by the districts they represent, they forge alliances and make deals, promising large cash sums to try to get the best start. Legendary rider Gigi Bruschelli has won thirteen Palios in sixteen years and is accused by his critics of monopolizing the race. But one jockey stands in his way: Giovanni Atzeni, his former trainee, a handsome young Sardinian who is quietly determined to challenge his old mentor. Less interested in bribes and collusion, he rides for the love of the race. From the producer of "Senna" and "Amy," "Palio" is the riveting story of a young 'outsider' keen to break into the dangerous but worthwhile race and the corrupt 'insider' who has manipulated the city of Siena for years. Their passionate and dramatic battle is an epic and cinematic tale of Italian life.This Blu-ray comes packed with special features, including heart-stopping deleted scenes, never-before-seen additional interviews and filmmaker commentary.When sold by Amazon.com, this product is manufactured on demand using BD-R recordable media.
