Thought one hour photo was slow dull boring and amounted to well basically nothing, I thought he might have gone all psycho or something and killed them .

Excellent news. Eagerly awaiting the Arrow Academy release of Blade Trinity.

A limited edition collection containing three of Akio Jissôji’s New Wave films for the Art Theatre Guild.

Release date: 11/12 June

Akio Jissôji created a rich and diverse body of work during his five decades in Japan’s film and television industries. For some, he is best-known for his science-fiction: the 1960s TV series Ultraman and 1998’s box-office success Tokyo: The Last Megalopolis. For others, it is his 1990s adaptations of horror and mystery novelist Edogawa Rampo, such as Watcher in the Attic and Murder on D Street. And then there are his New Wave films for the Art Theatre Guild, three of which – This Transient Life, Mandara and Poem, forming The Buddhist Trilogy – are collected here.

Winner of the Golden Leopard award at the 1970 Locarno Film Festival, This Transient Life is among the Art Theatre Guild’s most successful – and most controversial – productions. The film concerns a brother and sister from a rich family who defy the expectations placed on them: he has little interest in further education or his father’s business, instead obsessing over Buddhist statues; she continually refuses a string of suitors and the prospect of marriage. Their closeness, and isolation, gives way to an incestuous relationship which, in turn, breeds disaster.

Mandara, Jissôji’s first colour feature, maintained the controversial subject matter, focussing on a cult who recruit through rape and hope to achieve true ecstasy through sexual release. Shot, as with all of Jissôji’s Art Theatre Guild works, in a radically stylised manner, the film sits somewhere between the pinku genre and the fiercely experimental approach of his Japanese New Wave contemporaries.

The final entry in the trilogy, Poem, returns to black and white and is centred on the austere existence of a young houseboy who becomes helplessly embroiled in the schemes of two brothers. Written by Toshirô Ishidô (screenwriter of Nagisa Ôshima’s The Sun’s Burial and Shôhei Imamura’s Black Rain), who also penned This Transient Life and Mandala, Poem continues the trilogy’s exploration of faith in a post-industrial world.

LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS
• High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentations of This Transient Life, Mandara and Poem
• Original uncompressed LPCM mono 1.0 audio on all three films
• Newly translated optional English subtitles
• Introductions to all three films by David Desser, author of Eros Plus Massacre: An Introduction to the Japanese New Wave
• Scene-select commentaries on all three films by Desser
• Theatrical trailer for Mandara
• Theatrical trailer for Poem
• Limited edition packaging, fully illustrated by maarko phntm
• Illustrated 80-page perfect-bound collector’s book featuring new writings on the film by Anton Bitel and Tom Mes"

Arrow pride itself in the quality of every release that we work on. Within the Akio Jissoji – The Buddhist Trilogy we’ve set about tracing the very best materials available. Unfortunately tracking these down has proven more difficult than we initially thought, which has had a knock-on effect on our production schedule.

While we recognise that this will cause disappointment, during the production process we have managed to secure the rights to another film that we will be adding to the collection. This is Jissoji’s 1974 feature It Was a Faint Dream, which will expand and improve the set. The release date has now been pushed back to 31st December 2018.

We sincerely appreciate your patience during this delay."
Today:
"***AKIO JISSOJI: THE BUDDHIST TRILOGY RELEASE DATE UPDATE***

As many of you may already be aware, we’ve previously encountered a few production issues with our AKIO JISSOJI: THE BUDDHIST TRILOGY release. Sadly one of these issues is still unresolved so after much careful consideration, we’ve now decided to remove this item from sale until we can 100% confirm a new date for release. If you’ve ordered this box set direct from our website you should have already received an email from our team and we’ll be issuing you with refunds shortly.

We are genuinely sorry for this situation - we know lots of you are really looking forward to this set. The release will still very much be going ahead, we just want to ensure we have a concrete date set rather than pushing the set back again and again whilst we try and resolve the last of the issues.

Team Arrow"

"***RELEASE DATE UPDATES***

Sadly our ambitious schedule for November and December has hit a few production delays and this has had a domino effect on our schedule resulting in us having to move a few titles. Revised dates are as follows:
  • De Niro & De Palma: The Early Films (UK) – Now December 3
  • De Niro & De Palma: The Early Films (US) - Now December 11
  • Texas Adios (UK) – Now December 10
  • Django (US) – Now December 11
  • Crimson Peak (UK) – Now January 14
  • Crimson Peak (US) – Now January 15

We can only apologise for this series of delays, we’re really disappointed that we’re having to move so many releases. We also want to be upfront with you all and give you a heads up that these date changes won’t be the last. With this in mind, please do keep an eye on our social feeds as next week we'll be dropping a few more date changes – we are just waiting for final confirmation on the achievable dates.

As ever, we really appreciate all of your support and hope these date moves won’t cause you too many issues.

Team Arrow"

NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: My Name Is Julia Ross (Blu-ray)

A briskly paced and brilliantly stylised mystery that grabs its audience from the start

Release dates: 18/19 February 2019

"After a promising start on Poverty Row quickies, Joseph H. Lewis (The Big Combo) made his first film at Columbia and established himself as a director to watch with this Gothic-tinged Hitchcockian breakout hit, which later proved so popular that Columbia promoted it to A-feature status.

The morning after Julia Ross (Nina Foch, Executive Suite) takes a job in London as secretary to wealthy widow Mrs Williamson Hughes (Dame May Whitty, The Lady Vanishes), she wakes up in a windswept Cornish mansion, having been drugged. Mrs Hughes and her volatile son, Ralph (George Macready, Gilda), attempt to gaslight Julia into believing she is Ralph’s wife, Marion. Her belongings have been destroyed, the windows barred and the locals believe that she is mad. Will Julia be able to escape before she falls prey to the Hughes’ sinister charade? And what happened to the real Marion Hughes?

A briskly paced and brilliantly stylised mystery that grabs its audience from the start, My Name Is Julia Ross immediately cemented Lewis’ place in the noir pantheon, and anticipated the elaborate identity-based deceptions found in future classic thrillers like Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and Brian De Palma’s Obsession.

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:
• High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation
• Original uncompressed mono PCM audio
• Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
• Commentary by noir expert Alan K. Rode
• Identity Crisis: Joseph H. Lewis at Columbia - The Nitrate Diva (Nora Fiore) provides the background and an analysis of the film
• Theatrical trailer
• Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Scott Saslow

FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Illustrated collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and critic Adrian Martin"

NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: So Dark the Night (Blu-ray)

A Hitchcockian tale of mystery and intrigue

Release dates: 18/19 February 2019

"Like his contemporaries Howard Hawks and Billy Wilder, Joseph H. Lewis (Gun Crazy) dabbled in many genres, but excelled in the film noir tradition. A Hitchcockian tale of mystery and intrigue, So Dark the Night was one of his finest pictures.

Inspector Cassin, a renowned Paris detective, departs to the country for a much-needed break. There he falls in love with the innkeeper’s daughter, Nanette, who is already betrothed to a local farmer. On the evening of their engagement party, Nanette and the farmer both disappear. Cassin takes up the case immediately to discover what happened to them and who is responsible.

As with his celebrated noir masterpieces My Name Is Julia Ross and The Big Combo, Lewis elevates the twisty, pulpy material with some of the finest noir touches the genre has to offer, beautifully shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer (Bonnie and Clyde).

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:
• High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation
• Original uncompressed mono PCM audio
• Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
• Audio Commentary by critics Glenn Kenny and Farran Smith Nehme
• So Dark... Joseph H. Lewis at Columbia - Critic Imogen Sara Smith provides the background and an analysis of the film
• Theatrical trailer
• Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Tonci Zonjic

FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Illustrated collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by critic David Cairns"
