Suburban Connecticut, 1973. While the Watergate hearings blast from the TV, the wayward Hood and Carver families try to navigate a Thanksgiving break simmering with unspoken resentments, sexual experimentation, and cultural confusion. With crystalline clarity, characteristic subtlety, and even a dose of wicked humor, Academy Award–winning director Ang Lee adapts Rick Moody’s acclaimed novel of American malaise into a trenchant, tragic portrait of lost souls. Featuring a tremendous cast of established actors (Kevin Kline, Joan Allen, Sigourney Weaver) and up-and-coming stars (Tobey Maguire, Christina Ricci, Elijah Wood, Katie Holmes), The Ice Storm is one of the finest films of the nineties.

By turns tragic and transcendent, Akira Kurosawa’s film follows the daily lives of a group of people barely scraping by in a slum on the outskirts of Tokyo. Yet as desperate as their circumstances are, each of them—the homeless father and son envisioning their dream house; the young woman abused by her uncle; the boy who imagines himself a trolley conductor—finds reasons to carry on. The unforgettable Dodes’ka-den was made at a tumultuous moment in Kurosawa’s life. And all of his hopes, fears, and artistic passion are on fervent display in this, his gloriously shot first color film.

Acclaimed director Iwai Shunji first rose to fame with the hauntingly beautiful Love Letter in 1995. Known as a visual artist, Iwai infuses his films with stunning imagery and a keen sensibility that captures the sentiments of contemporary youth and modern life. Reminiscent of Love Letter, his 1998 film April Story is a visually enrapturing and emotionally rewarding experience, unfolding like a beautiful still life painting that is short in length but rich in colors. Small screen star Matsu Takako (Love Generation) brings alive the quiet, moving tale of a young woman's journey into life.
With the coming of spring, Hokkaido native Nireno Uzuki (Matsu Takako) leaves home for Tokyo to begin a new life as a university student. Shy, awkward, and lonely, she slowly adjusts to her new home, finding solace in the local bookstore and joy in the sight of cherry blossoms, fluttering in the wind. During orientation, Uzuki is thrown off by a seemingly simple question - why did she choose this university? She is unable to answer, for her reason is as at once simple and complex, encompassing a world of memories and emotions.

The Naked Island - Kaneto Shindo (Eureka - The Masters of Cinema Series - #12) [DVD9] 
Full Dual-Layer DVDs | ISO Image | 300dpi HQ Scans + Booklet | 5.58 GBs
1960 | Art-House | 2.35:1 OAR | Japanese | English Subtitles | 93 min. | Rapidshare
Filmed on the virtually deserted Setonaikai archipelago in south-west Japan, The Naked Island was made — in the words of its director — “as a ‘cinematic poem’ to try and capture the life of human beings struggling like ants against the forces of nature”. Kaneto Shindo, director of Onibaba (MoC #13) and Kuroneko (MoC #14), made the film with his own production company, Kinda Eiga Kyokai, who were facing financial ruin at the time. Using one-tenth of the average budget, Shindo took one last impassioned risk to make this film. With his small crew, they relocated to an inn on the island of Mihari where, for two months in early 1960, they would make what they considered to be their last film.

Voted the best Czech film ever made, Marketa Lazarov is a powerful and passionate medieval epic set in the mid-13th Century. Based on avant-garde writer Vladislav Vancura's novel, it follows the rivalry between two warring clans, the Kozlks and the Lazars, and the doomed love affair of Mikols Kozlk and Marketa Lazarov.
Re-creating an authentic world and as reminiscent of Tarkovsky and Kurosawa as it is of the rich tapestry of Czech fiction, this ambitious and multi-layered film is the crowning achievement of Vlcil's career and one of the undiscovered cornerstones of world cinema.
This is the first-ever DVD release of Marketa Lazarov anywhere in the world.

Krzysztof Kieslowski’s international breakthrough remains one of his most beloved films, a ravishing, mysterious rumination on identity, love, and human intuition. Irne Jacob is incandescent as both Weronika, a Polish choir soprano, and her double, Vronique, a French music teacher. Though unknown to each other, the two women share an enigmatic, purely emotional bond, which Kieslowski details in gorgeous reflections, colors, and movements. Aided by Slawomir Idziak’s shimmering cinematography and Zbigniew Preisner’s haunting, operatic score, Kieslowski creates one of cinema’s most purely metaphysical works. The Double Life of Vronique is an unforgettable symphony of feeling.
