Dersu Uzala (1975) – Imprint Collection #158
Dersu Uzala is the enthralling tale of an eccentric Mongolian frontiersman (Maxim Munzuk) who is taken on as a guide by a Soviet surveying crew. While the soldiers at first perceive Dersu as a naive and comical relic of an uncivilized age, he quickly proves himself otherwise with displays of ingenuity and bravery unmatched by any member of the inexperienced mapping team, on more than one occasion becoming their unlikely saviour. An amazing true story based on the memoir by Russian explorer Vladimir Arsenyev. Filmed in the far reaches of Siberia, it took over two years for Director Akira Kurosawa to complete this timeless masterpiece of cinema which was shot in 70mm and was honoured with the Oscar for Best Foreign-Language Film in 1976.
Barfly (1987) – Imprint Collection #159
Henry Chinaski (Mickey Rourke) is a talented writer of prolific prose; unfortunately, he’s also a skid-row alcoholic with a violent temper. He picks fights nightly with Eddie (Frank Stallone), the bartender at the local watering hole, the Golden Horn, and lives in a seedy tenement, stealing food and trying to scrape together enough money for booze. Fellow alcoholic Willa Wilcox (Faye Dunaway) catches Henry’s eye at the bar one afternoon and although she has a reputation for being unstable, the two embark on a relationship with each other and the bottle.
Based on a semiautobiographical short story by poet and screenwriter Charles Bukowski and directed by Barbet Schroeder, BARFLY offers insight into the world of the alcoholic, where all that matters is the next drink.
Limited 2 Disc Hard box edition.
The Road Home (1999) – Imprint Collection #160

But what begins as a short trip to bury his father becomes much more when he learns his mother wants a traditional burial for her beloved husband. She wants to have him carried by foot, honoring the belief that a body returned this way will never forget the road home. As Yusheng enlists the men needed to fulfill her wishes, the story of his parents’ love affair unfolds.
From the award-winning director Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern) comes a romantic drama whose story is as beautiful as the cinematography. THE ROAD HOME will take you on an unforgettable journey filled with romance, culture and tradition.
