"Jim Sheridan: Irelend’s finest director.

Jim Sheridan was a prominent figure of the New Wave of Irish filmmaking in the 1990s. His work has always been praised for his balance between mainstream entertainment and social statements on Irish issues.

My Left Foot (1989), which marked the first of three successful collaborations with actor and fellow Irishman Daniel Day-Lewis including In The Name Of The Father (1993) & The Boxer (1997) all which earned universal acclaim.

His second film The Field (1990) (making its Blu-ray debut in this box) was overlooked at the time of release and is now ripe for re-appraisal with praised performances from Richard Harris, Sean Bean & John Hurt.

This limited-edition collection brings all four films together for the first time with stunning HD presentations, newly produced interviews, commentaries &
features all confirming that Sheridan is a powerful force behind the camera."

"Kurosawa’s Academy Award winning masterpiece.

Dersu Uzala is the enthralling tale of an eccentric Mongolian frontiersman (Maxim Munzuk) who is taken on as a guide by a Soviet surveying crew.

'Barfly' (1987) - Blu-ray pre-order available from [Imprint] direct - Aus $69.95

Release date: September 28

"Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.

Henry Chinaski (Mickey Rourke) is a talented writer of prolific prose; unfortunately, he’s also a skid-row alcoholic with a violent temper. He picks fights nightly with Eddie (Frank Stallone), the bartender at the local watering hole, the Golden Horn, and lives in a seedy tenement, stealing food and trying to scrape together enough money for booze. Fellow alcoholic Willa Wilcox (Faye Dunaway) catches Henrys eye at the bar one afternoon and although she has a reputation for being unstable, the two embark on a relationship with each other and the bottle.

Based on a semiautobiographical short story by poet and screenwriter Charles Bukowski and directed by Barbet Schroeder, Barfly offers insight into the world of the alcoholic, where all that matters is the next drink.

When Barbet Schroeder (More, General Idi Amin Dada, Single White Female) began work on the movie Barfly, he had no idea that it would be such a struggle. During the seven years it took him to complete the film, he turned his cameras on its screenwriter, poet and novelist Charles Bukowski

Bukowski, legendary for his drunken excess and frank observations on life, love, and survival, took no exception with Schroeder.

Schroeder eventually completed The Charles Bukowski Tapes, a four-hour long study of the man and the music of his words."

As Yusheng enlists the men needed to fulfill her wishes, the story of his parents’ love affair unfolds.
