1.0 out of 5 stars UNIQUE, 16 July 2010
This review is from: Caligula [DVD] (DVD)
One of the worst films in the world is forcingly a cult movie, Unfortunately this release lacks everything! it's a cropped version with the wrong ratio, poor quality of sound and image, which makes it impossible to watch and enjoy the flop-film

4.0 out of 5 stars DEREK JARMAN'S JUBILEE, 16 July 2010
This review is from: Jubilee [DVD] (DVD)
In 1977 London has become a grim landscape inhabited by anarchic, violent gangs and Buckingham Palace has become a recording studio in a world where the media is controlled by a man called Borgia Ginz.
The film echoes much of the work of John Waters, Ken Russell and Jean Cocteau, and preceeds some of Peter Greenaway's filmic concerns ; It's often rough, oblique and jagged but shot with wit, irony and a dadaist eye towards violence.
this DVD release suffers from poor colours and lacks high definition digital transfer.

4.0 out of 5 stars DEREK JARMAN'S SEBASTIANE, 16 July 2010
This review is from: Sebastiane [DVD] (DVD)
Set in a Roman military outpost, the sun baked landscape and the sea creates an atmosphere in which the men form physical and sexual bonds. Their passionate relationships are full of male humour, obsession, romance and violence. At the centre of this whirlwind is the Captain of the guard, Severus, unable to articulate his sexuality, who is determined to make the young Christian soldier, Sebastian love him despite the young man's continual rejection.
The versions available on DVD have oddly used a cropped version not showing a hardon for their releases. Whether be deliberate (the DVD has an 18 certificate) or just sheer laziness and ignorance about the film's original screen ratio, it is so.
Sad to say, the definitive version has yet to make it to DVD. A future release deserves an original ratio, high definition restoration because this is a cult movie
