Take a look at some of the titles available and the acclaim they have recieved from critics:


Battle Royale (2000) 

Warning: Clip below contains violent scenes.

 'Veteran director Kinji Fukasaku has composed an extraordinary futuristic nightmare, in which his long-standing expertise in yakuza-style violence is coloured by sadness and a sort of crazed tenderness.' - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.

'It's a movie that never lets you settle down, zipping between satire and splatter, offering moments that will make the most hardened viewer cringe and snatches of quiet melancholy that will haunt you for a long time.' - Kim Newman, Empire.


Man on Wire (2008)


'This lovely, touching film demonstrates that the World Trade Center sky walk was an important event. The proof is in the emotions — amusement, amazement, awe — evoked by those images of a tiny human figure balancing above a void.' - A.O. Scott, New York Times.

'Much of the pleasure of James Marsh's extraordinary documentary Man on Wire lies in hearing the story from Petit himself, as flamboyant a raconteur as he is an acrobat.' - Jonathan Romney, The Independent.


Stranger by the Lake (2013)

 'Guiraudie’s film is acutely brilliant on the funny, scary machinery of desire, and how easily humans can get caught up in its cogwheels.' - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.

'The sexiest and most elegant thriller in years.' - MichaÅ‚ Oleszczyk,

'Compelling and audaciously candid in its erotic charge, while an ending that literally leaves us in the dark is one of the most haunting sign-offs in recent cinema.' - Jonathan Romney, The Guardian.


Berberian Sound Studio (2012)

 'This is lip-smacking cinema, gamy and complex: if it sounds like something that might appeal to your palate, consider it unmissable.' - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.

 'Painstakingly recreating an era of full-blooded Italian horror, this niche-sounding yet accessible thriller confirms Strickland as a major talent.' - Jamie Graham, Total Film.
