Drums And Wires (CD + DVD-A)

The spectacle of Fritz Lang's SF masterpiece in this recently restored version - using a damaged 16mm print to restore much of the missing material takes it from the savagely cut 95ish minutes ba

Snow In Paradise

Selected for the London Film Festival after competing at Cannes, I had looked forward to this film as a fan of gritty British drama by the likes of Shane Meadows and Andrea Arnold.

Hannibal (Seasons 1&2)
