Sogo Ishii's CRAZY THUNDER ROAD Available on Blu-ray from Third Window Films (UK / 21 February)

Ken, a gang leader dreaming of a quiet life with his girlfriend Noriko, and Jin, Ken’s maverick successor, who isn’t about to let yakuza kingpins tell him what to do or whom to kill. Jin’s violent individualism in a world where even outlaws follow the bosses’ orders references the doomed anti-establishment heroes of Kinji Fukasaku, but Crazy Thunder Road points toward a new style of genre filmmaking-fast-paced, quick-witted and brilliantly stylized.

“Will you go on riding or not?”

CultFilms Presents the 4K Restoration of Marco Ferreri's THE APE WOMAN on Blu-ray & Digital (UK /11 October)

From Marco Ferreri, perhaps best known for the wildly sensational satire La Grande Bouffe, CultFilms is proud to present one of the director’s earliest and most controversial films, The Ape Woman (1964). Deemed too challenging for the 1964 Cannes Film Festival, an alternative ‘happy’ ending was created for the festival that eventually went on to pick up a Palme d’Or nomination that year. For this world first ever Blu-ray release, CultFilms presents Ferreri’s own original edit now shown complete and uncut.
