SHORT SHARP SHOCKS (2-disc Blu-ray, Flipside #41)

The latest in the critically acclaimed BFI Flipside series continuing its ongoing mission to curate an alternative Brit-screen history of overlooked rarities in deluxe home-entertainment editions is a compelling compendium of strange, striking, thrilling, horrific, eerie and eccentric short subjects from the heyday of the British cinematic supporting programme.

This carefully-curated collection the first of its kind anywhere includes a plethora of sought-after titles, some newly remastered in HD for the very first time and showcases an eclectic range of delights spanning the second half of the 20th Century from the 1940s right through to the 1980s.

A lavish double-disc set, it comes complete with an illustrated booklet with full credits and new contextual writing on the films by devotees of the field. Expect strange, spooky stories, odd twists in the tale, imaginative low-budget weirdness and oodles of atmosphere in these juicy bite-size morsels of cult film delight from decades gone by.

Featuring the following films:
Lock Your Door (Anthony Gilkison, 1949)
The Reformation of St Jules (Anthony Gilkison, 1949)
The Tell-Tale Heart (J B Williams, 1953)

La Haine (2-disc Blu-ray)

Simmering hostility and prejudices boil over in Mathieu Kassovitz's provocative and compelling portrait of a Parisian housing project

Set in the aftermath of a riot, three friends Vinz (Vincent Cassell), Hubert (Hubert Kounde) and Said (Said Taghmaoui) trapped by their economic, ethnic and community circumstances, navigate the escalating urban discontent. But, with tensions still high and the threat of violence ever-present, the trio drift towards an increasingly dangerous destiny.

Newly restored in 4K, La Haine's scalding take on France's social divide still carries a knockout punch. Beautifully shot in black and white by Pierre Aim, this mid-1990s landmark remains as fresh and relevant 25 years on from its original release.

Special Features:
2-disc Limited Edition
Fietto le pou (1990, 7 mins): a young man shoots hoops (or tries) in a gym, when a young woman appears whom he attempts to impress
Cauchemar blanc (1991, 10 mins): a group of guys cruise the streets looking for someone to rob
Assassins... (1992, 12 mins): Mathieu Kassovitz's short film which he would later develop into the feature Assassin(s) in 1997
Preparing for the Shoot (1995, 6 mins): behind-the-scenes footage as Kassovitz and his cast and crew prepare to embark on making La Haine
The Making of a Scene (1995,7 mins): a look at the shooting of a particularly challenging scene in the film
Trailers
Clips
Many more extras to be confirmed
Fully illustrated perfect-bound book featuring essays on the film and its continuing influence, the importance of music in La Haine, an in-depth interview with Mathieu Kassovitz, and much more

POLYTECHNIQUE (Blu-ray)

Young lives are forever changed when a gunman opens fire in a Canadian school, determined to kills as many women as possible.

A dramatization of the tragic Montreal Massacre, the events of the day are documented through the eyes of two student witnesses and the perpetrator, with the horrors of the carnage leaving a legacy far beyond the shooting itself

Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) and shot in stark black-and-white by Pierre Gill, Polytechnique is a profound achievement from one of contemporary cinema s most original directors

Friendship's Death (DVD + Blu-ray)
Directed by Peter Wollen

Friendship's Death is a bizarre and absorbing story of the relationship between a British war correspondent (Bill Paterson, Comfort and Joy) and a female extra-terrestrial, named Friendship (Tilda Swinton, We Need to Talk About Kevin) who on a peace mission to Earth misses her intended destination of MIT, and instead lands inadvertently in Jordan during the events of Black September in 1970. The film's intelligent wit, coupled with outstanding performances from its two leads makes this a truly compelling film.

Directed by renowned film theorist Peter Wollen (and his only solo feature) Friendship's Death has been newly restored by the BFI National Archive and is available on Blu-ray and DVD for the first time.

Special features
Presented in High Definition and Standard Definition
Newly remastered by the BFI National Archive

Pour La haine, ça serait une excellente alternative au double blu-ray (et UHD ?) annoncé par Studio Canal ; le prix d'une part, et la présence des courts-métrages de Kassovitz d'autre part. J'attends de voir ce que va proposer l'éditeur français avant de craquer.

Et l'assurance d'un boîtier sobre et ergonomique ne prenant pas trop de place.

Mais j'ose espérer quand même que Studio Canal France (si c'est bien eux) fera mieux, quand même !

Les bonus de l'édition Canal ont été dévoilés, d'ailleurs ? En voyant les specs de l'édition UK, je me disais que c'était costaud aussi et qu'il faudrait voir à la comparaison, mais en fait, hormis les 2 bonus très britanniques qui ne seront sans doute pas repris, il n'y a que la nouvelle interview de Kasso dont je me demande qui l'a filmée (le BFI ou Canal), car le reste tient du bonus d'archives qui sera sans doute présent sur l'édition FR. Et le BFI n'inclut pas d'UHD.


Joli line-up de début 2021, sinon. :o

Oui, l'édition a été testée dans le dernier numéro des Années Laser ; le doc de 83' a été repris et le seul bonus inédit est un nouveau commentaire audio (son 3eme sur le même film :shock: ) de Kassovitz pour les 25 ans du film. Après, l'édition française a pour elle l'UHD ainsi qu'un livre, mais 50 euros :|

Je vais me tourner vers BFI.

:shock: :lol:
Comme quoi, même quand ça semble super probable que des anciens bonus seront repris (au moins les scènes coupées), ce n'est pas le cas. Pour un film français dans une édition à 50 balles, c'est ballot. Je vais peut-être choper l'édition BFI et me prendre le scénario à part (enfin, pas à 39 balles - c'est fou, je suis persuadé de l'avoir vu 10€ moins cher à la FNAC, j'ai du mal lire :| ).

En même temps, y a-t-il encore quelque chose de neuf à rajouter au film ? Kassovitz en parle partout depuis 25 ans :wink:
Perso, ce qui me chagrine, c'est de ne pas avoir d'édition simple sans les goodies, comme pour À bout de souffle. Je n'ai aucune envie de payer 25 balles de plus à chaque fois pour des goodies dont je me fiche.
