90s Cult Comedy BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER Director's Cut on Blu-ray (21 June) from Lionsgate UK

Jamie Babbit’s classic 90s cult comedy But I’m A Cheerleader heads to Blu-ray this June in a sparkling new 4K-restored Director’s Cut.

Blending 90s rom-com charm with the sharp satire of an 80s John Waters’ comedy, But I’m a Cheerleader is a timeless, hilarious and candy-coloured tale of acceptance and love that’s as relevant now as it was on its release, restored in 4K for this brand new director’s cut.

“A comedy of sexual disorientation.”

First Love (2019, Japan / UK) Review

First Love (2019, Japan) Review

About to enter his fourth decade of filmmaking and with over 100 movies to his name, Takashi Miike is one of the most prolific filmmakers working today. With such a huge output (averaging four films per year) his work can vary in genre and in quality. Some of Miike’s crime features can be humorless and gory, but his latest feature First Love, sees him at his most anarchically playful, his trademark ultra-violence is present, but here it is tempered by black comedy and a touch of romance. First Love is the kind of film that is a treat for genre fans who are familiar with Asian gangster tropes.

“Why boxing? It’s all I can do.”

The Films That Made Me: Wings of Desire (1987, West Germany / France)

The Films That Made Me: Wings of Desire (1987, West Germany / France)

In our rush to analyse, dissect and debate, we often forget that one of the functions of art, in this case cinematic art, is simply to give pleasure. Pleasure is subjective – what might give you pleasure might not appeal to someone else. It’s futile to disagree on this point unless of course, we can all exchange opinions in ways that might be mutually enlightening. Some of the most fascinating conversations I’ve had with cinephiles is when they enthuse about the films that made them fall in love with the medium. It is that which has prompted me to discuss some of the ‘films that made me’
