Announced earlier in the month and completing the August line up are BIRDMAN OF ALCATRAZ, the inspirational and compelling classic starring Burt Lancaster in an Oscar nominated role, and FLESH + BLOOD, Paul Verhoeven’s irresistibly entertaining medieval epic starring Rutger Hauer and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Often acknowledged as one of the best prison films ever made, Birdman of Alcatraz was director John Frankenheimer’s first huge success and received rave reviews for its performances, cinematography (by the great Burnett Guffey; From Here to Eternity, Bonnie and Clyde) and Frankenheimer’s directing. With an all-star cast that includes Karl Malden (A Streetcar Named Desire), Thelma Ritter (Pickup on South Street), Telly Savalas (The Dirty Dozen) and Edmond O’Brien (The Barefoot Contessa), The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present John Frankenheimer’s Birdman of Alcatraz for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, available from 6 August 2018. Watch our exclusive new trailer here.
A deliriously violent medieval epic from genre master and director of Robocop and Total Recall, Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Total Recall), Flesh + Blood sees a savage and amoral band of mercenaries take revenge on the noblemen who betrayed them. With its vision of a brutal and morally bereft Medieval Europe, the film shocked audiences who had become used to the highly romanticised depictions of the era commonly seen on the big screen. Originally censored in the UK due to its extreme amounts of sex and violence, Eureka Classics is proud to present Flesh + Blood fully uncut, and on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a special Dual Format edition, available from 6 August 2018.
