  The Best of COI: Five decades of Public Information Films on Blu-ray [read more]
  This'll learn you
  Established in April 1946, the Central Office of Information (COI) was the successor to the wartime Ministry of Information and went on to produce and distribute thousands of films for use across Britain, the Commonwealth and the world.

Although perhaps best remembered now for the short public information films, particularly from the 1970s, the COI's huge range of films had different purposes, for instance some were aimed at specialist audiences and others were made to promote Britain abroad.

Reflecting that, this 2-disc Blu-ray collection, released by the BFI on 20 April 2020, brings together many of the COI's most loved (and in some cases feared) and most interesting productions from 1944 - 1981 which are now preserved in the BFI National Archive. Among them are Design for Today, Apaches, Lonely Water and Charley's March of Time along with two previously unreleased COI classics, Smoking and You and Waverley Steps.

Special features are four public information 'fillers', short but hard-hitting films designed to shock, including the chilling, iconic AIDS: Iceberg (1987), directed by Nic Roeg with music by Brian Eno.

Other renowned directors that passed through the portals of the COI include luminaries of the British documentary movement such as Paul Rotha, Humphrey Jennings and Lindsay Anderson and in later years the likes of Hugh Hudson (Chariots of Fire) and Peter Greenaway (The Draughtsman's Contract).

  Revenge on Blu-ray [read more]
  Lives up to its name
  One of the most talked about movies of recent years, Revenge lends 'pitch-black humour and a cunning feminist agenda' (Daily Express) to the classic exploitation genre, and now Second Sight Films is giving this groundbreaking gore-fest the Limited Edition Blu-ray box set treatment.

The release features stacks of brand new special features, including a new interview with debut feature writer-director Coralie Fargeat and star Matilda Lutz (Medici), whose performance is 'gripping - a powerful mix of Lara Croft and The Bride' says The Sun. Also included are new interviews with the film's cinematographer and the composer, a new commentary and much more. The set arrives on 11 May 2020 complete with new artwork, designed by Adam Stothard, a poster and a soft cover book with writing by Mary Beth McAndrews and Elena Lazic. Try the trailer at the link above.

Entitled CEO Richard's (Kevin Janssens - Undercover) romantic getaway with his young mistress Jen (Lutz) is interrupted when his sleazy associates Stan (Vincent Colombe - Point Blank) and Dimitri (Guillaume Bouchède - Love at Second Sight) arrive early for the businessmen’s annual hunting trip. Their leering advances turn ugly, culminating in a brutal attack where Jen is left for dead in the desert. Like a phoenix from the ashes, Jen rises, and now she's out for revenge. What follows is 'a bloody middle finger... a demand for reckoning... a kick in the balls with a feminine combat boot' (Rolling Stone).

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned... and now it's time to get Revenge.
