So, got this email just now that reads: " your cult films order has been marked as complete on our side"

That sounds massively dodge! Who wants to bet it won't turn up.

Basically they've only just shipped it.

I would put money on them royally screwing up then not admitting it but fobbing everyone off with the same story that most have been shipped...you were one of the unlucky ones though. *cough* as was everyone else!

Glad I relented and ordered it.
Not only does it look and sound superb-it also has a reversible cover with original art!

Fellini's '' - Blu-ray pre-order available from Cult Films Direct - £19.99

Release date: February 3rd

"Fellini is one of the most original and creative minds of the 20th Century, he is acclaimed by critics and filmmakers alike as one of the most influential directors of all time, and his “8½“ is acknowledged as his masterpiece revered as the most important European film ever made.

Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido (Fellini’s alter-ego), a successful filmmaker who, embarking on his next film, is overcome by director’s block and finds he has no story to tell ! Struggling to find inspiration, he is harassed by his producers, his crew, his wife (Anouk Aimée), even by his mistress (Sandra Milo), so he retreats into fantasy, where his muse appears embodied by Claudia Cardinale, and he revels in dreamy memories of his life and lovers… Until memories, fantasy and reality merge in the director’s mind and on screen into an astonishing, masterful spectacle, culminating in the electrifying triumph of optimism that becomes 8½.

As Fellini-Guido says “Life is a party let’s live it together!”"

  • New intimate interview with actor, and Fellini’s off-screen companion, Sandra Milo
  • New interview with Lina Wertmuller, Fellini’s assistant director on 8 1/2

'Federico Fellini Four Films' - Blu-ray pre-order available from Cult Films Direct - £39.99

Release date: February 10th

"The 4 essential Fellini films in one must-have boxset collection. One of the most original creative minds of the 20th Century, Fellini is unanimously voted by critics and filmmakers as one of the greatest directors of all time.

Fellini’s most acclaimed work, 8 1/2 won 2 Oscars, it is perennially voted the ultimate film ever, with Mastroianni playing Fellini’s alter-ego, a film director with a creative block: struggling, he retreats in dreamy recollections of his life and lovers…

La Dolce Vita is Fellini’s most popular masterpiece . An epoch-making landmark having become a cultural reference and an expression in itself, it is filled with mesmerising images like Anita Ekberg frolicking in Rome’s Trevi fountain. It is one of the most influential and truly iconic films of all times.

Giuietta degli Spiriti [Julia Of The Spirits] is Fellini’s 1st colour masterpiece. Presented here for the 1st time ever in full-HD finally doing justice to the director’s dazzling explosion of ‘felliniesque’ vision. This idiosyncratic paean to Woman a breathtakingly beautiful fantastical carnival ride with outstanding colour cinematography.

Rooted in Neorealism, I Vitelloni is a pivotal Fellini masterpiece, observing the mores of 1950s Italy where a clique of idlers, the ‘Vitelloni’ of the title, try to avoid adulthood. It is the avowed prototype for films like ‘Mean Street’ American Graffiti and others…"

'The Night Porter' (1974) - Blu-Ray pre-order available from Cult Films direct - £16.99

Release date: November 30

"CultFilms is proud to present the 4K restoration of Liliana Cavani’s provocative classic THE NIGHT PORTER, with brand new extras that explore the film’s controversial past and make it ripe for re-assessment.

This definitive release is enabled by the generous and essential participation of director Liliana Cavani and star Charlotte Rampling.

Max (Dirk Bogarde) is a night porter in a Vienna hotel in the 1950’s. When beautiful Lucia (Charlotte Rampling) checks in, they recognise each other. Max was an SS officer in a Nazi concentration camp who had abused and tortured the then-teenage Lucia, a prisoner. But Lucia makes excuses to her husband, an orchestra conductor, who leaves to continue his tour, and she stays behind as she and Max find themselves compelled to reignite what had in fact been their former intense sadomasochistic relationship.

Max is a reluctant member of a group of former SS officers who are ruthlessly covering up their pasts. Thinking that she will denounce them, they soon consider Lucia a threat and urge Max to hand her over to them. He refuses and hides out with Lucia, while his former comrades exert their threats…

This is the story of an ‘amour-fou’, an obsessive passion, which compels two lovers to be together despite their being lucidly aware of contravening all morality, even their own; and despite the certainty of their oncoming tragic destiny.

Lillian Cavani’s tale of passion, beyond all morality or societal construct, has been controversial ever since its initial release in 1974 – provoking indefinable overwhelming emotions which are wildly conflicting.

Now, over 45 years later, Liliana Cavani’s story of obsessive passion and tragic destiny, is presented in this definitive 4K restoration, overseen by Cavani herself and finally doing justice to her challenging and extraordinary vision."


Special features:
  • Interview with Liliana Cavani
  • Interview with Charlotte Rampling
