Brilliant icons of classic Italian cinema – both film stars and directors – make these four stories about very different kinds of women a sort of extended cinematic climax. The whole film quivers with intensity and extreme colouration and wonderful performances from the female leads.
This carnivalesque love story, conquering the nihilism of 1980s New York through the lenses of a former radio show DJ and a PTSD-suffering homeless man comes to Blu-ray.

A sombre, intriguing family drama cum thriller, which won the Un Certain Regard Jury prize at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Harmonium is slow burning but finally emotionally overwhelming.
A jungle adventure story with a defiant existential trajectory and some surreal inflections, Death in the Garden looks fantastic – the lovely Eastmancolour has been restored perfectly.
Dario Argento’s directorial debut is out in a brand new 4K restoration. It doesn’t luxuriate in violence like some of the later films but it’s still stylish as hell.
