If I remember right, isn't it filmed in B&W and almost 3 hours long?

NEW UK TITLE: Vengeance is Mine, All Others Pay Cash (Blu-ray)

Release date: September 19

Arrow US RRP: £18:00

"From acclaimed Indonesian director Edwin (Postcards from the Zoo) and based on the novel by Eka Kurniawan comes Vengeance is Mine, All Others Pay Cash, winner of the Golden Leopard at the 2021 Locarno Film Festival – a pulpy, energetic throwback to 80s South East Asian action and coming-of-age cinema about a young man who can’t get it up.

Ajo Kawir (Marthino Lio) is a fighter who fears nothing, not even death. But his raging urge to fight is driven by a secret – his impotence, resulting from a traumatic childhood memory. When he crosses paths with a tough female fighter named Iteung (Ladya Cheryl), Ajo gets beaten black and blue, but he also falls head over heels in love. Will Ajo’s path lead him to a happy life with Iteung, and, eventually, his own peace of mind?

With echoes of early Takashi Miike, Vengeance is Mine, All Others Pay Cash is a wild and unexpectedly poignant meditation on toxic masculinity and a culture steeped in violence from one of Indonesia’s most exciting directorial voices."


Special Features:
  • High Definition (1080p) Blu-ray presentation
  • Original lossless Indonesian 5.1 and 2.0 stereo audio
  • Optional English subtitles
  • Brand new audio Q&A with co-writer/director Edwin

  • The World Behind Vengeance – over 80 minutes of interview featurettes with the cast and crew
  • Video diaries from each day of shooting
  • An hour of readings from the original source novel, featuring multiple cast and crew members
  • Deleted scenes
  • Theatrical trailer
  • Image gallery
  • Reversible sleeve feature two choices of artwork
  • FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Illustrated collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by Josh Hurtado

NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: A Fugitive From the Past (Blu-ray)

Release date: September 26

Arrow US RRP: £18:00

"Considered the magnum opus of the five decades-long career of Tomu Uchida (Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji, The Mad Fox), the epic crime drama A Fugitive from the Past was voted third in the prestigious Kinema Junpo magazine’s 1999 poll of the Top Japanese Films of the 20th Century.

In 1947, a freak typhoon sends a passenger ferry running between Hokkaido and mainland Japan plunging to the ocean depths, with hundreds of lives lost. During the chaos, three men are witnessed fleeing a burning pawnshop in the Hokkaido port town of Iwanai. The police suspect theft and arson, and when Detective Yumisaka (Junzaburo Ban) discovers the burned remains of a boat and the corpses of two men, he sets about tracking the shadowy third figure. Meanwhile, the mysterious Takichi Inukai (Rentaro Mikuni) takes shelter with a prostitute, Yae (Sachiko Hidari), a brief encounter that will come to define both of their lives. A decade later, long after the trail has gone cold, Yumisaka is called back by his successor Detective Ajimura (Ken Takakura) as two new dead bodies are found.

Making its home video debut outside of Japan, this adaptation of Tsutomu Minakami’s 1700-page novel is a landmark in master director Uchida’s oeuvre. Its gritty monochrome photography has the immediacy of newsreel as Uchida uses the landscapes of postwar Japan to explore the massive social upheaval and unspoken legacies of the war, and create an unsettling karmic allegory of a man’s struggle to escape his past sins."


Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of the restored 183 minute-long cut of the film
  • Original uncompressed mono audio
  • Optional English subtitles
  • Introduction by writer and curator Jasper Sharp
  • Scene-specific commentaries from leading Japanese film scholars Aaron Gerow, Irene González-López, Erik Homenick, Earl Jackson, Daisuke Miyao and Alexander Zahlten
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • Image gallery
  • Tomu Uchida filmography
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Tony Stella
  • FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Fully illustrated collector’s booklet featuring writing on the film by David Baldwin and Inuhiko Yomota

Obscure Japanse cinema and festival pickups. That's what Arrow is now. The Academy ate the Video. Shame.

The more Japanese films Arrow release, the happier that makes me. And I mean that in all seriousness.

Yep. I'm hoovering up all the ones i want from their back catalogue whilst they keep appearing at £7.99 and £8.99 and that may well be the end of Arrow for me although i hope not.

Fran Simeoni left for a reason and i think this past two months we are perhaps seeing that reason.

A film I've never heard of before, a magnum opus by a director whose name was also unknown to me.

There are many other films I'd like to see and Blu-ray sets I'd like to own than these.
