    Arrow Releasing The Films Of Walerian Borowc

    Just finished watching it all and can only say one thing, it's a stunning BD, and after years of dodgy VHS versions watching the disk is like seeing the film for the first time. Excellent and very comprehensive set of extras too

    NEW US TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT: IMMORAL TALES DUAL FORMAT BD & DVD

    Short stories from the master of European erotica, spanning the Renaissance to the present

    North American pre-orders links should be live soon!
    Release Date: 15th September
    Region: A/1

    Walerian Borowczyk’s first explicitly erotic feature, Immoral Tales presents a veritable cavalcade of depravity: cosmic fellatio, transcendental masturbation, blood-drenched lesbianism and papal incest.

    It tells four stories, each delving back further in time, as if to suggest that the same issues recur constantly throughout human civilization, whether involving notorious historical figures like Lucrezia Borgia and Erzsébet Báthory, or present-day teenagers.

    Capitalising on the relaxation of censorship laws, Immoral Tales would transform Borowczyk’s image from brilliant but obscure avant-garde artist to one of Europe’s most confrontational filmmakers when it came to trampling on sexual taboos.

    SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS
    - New high definition digital transfers of two versions of the feature, the familiar four-part edition and the original five-part conception including the short film The Beast of Gévaudan (which later became the feature The Beast)
    - Uncompressed Mono 2.0 PCM Audio
    - Optional English subtitles
    - Introduction by Borowczyk expert Daniel Bird
    - Love Reveals Itself, a new interview programme featuring production manager Dominique Duvergé-Ségrétin and cinematographer Noël Véry
    - Obscure Pleasures: A Portrait of Walerian Borowczyk, a newly-edited archival interview in which the filmmaker discusses painting, cinema and sex
    - Blow Ups, a visual essay by Daniel Bird about Borowczyk’s works on paper
    - Theatrical trailer
    - Reversible sleeve featuring Borowczyk’s own original poster design
    - Illustrated booklet containing new writing on the film by by Daniel Bird and an archive piece by Philip Strick

    NEW US TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT: THE BEAST DUAL FORMAT BD & DVD

    Walerian Borowczyk’s notorious and outrageous re-imagining of Beauty and the Beast

    North American pre-orders links should be live soon!
    Release Date: 15th September
    Region: A/1

    Walerian Borowczyk’s most notorious and controversial film wildly re-works the classic Beauty and the Beast story into a very adult fairy tale, a parody of pornographic tropes and an assault on notions of ‘good taste’.

    Bestial dreams interrupt the venal plans of a French aristocrat attempting to save a crumbling mansion by marrying off his deformed son, Mathurin, to a horny American heiress, Lucy. Yet Mathurin seems more interested in his horses than in his bride-to-be, and when Lucy finds out about the story of his 18th-century ancestor Romilda (Sirpa Lane) copulating with the titular beast it sparks to life one of the most outrageous dream sequences in cinema history.

    A huge hit in France that was extensively censored and banned elsewhere, The Beast broke new ground in sexual explicitness and remains a truly startling experience even today.

    SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:
    -New high definition digital transfer of the uncut 98-minute version
    -Uncompressed Mono 2.0 PCM Audio
    -Optional English subtitles
    -Introduction by film critic Peter Bradshaw
    -The Making of The Beast: camera operator Noël Véry provides a commentary on footage shot during the film’s production
    -Frenzy of Ecstasy, a visual essay on the evolution of Borowczyk’s beast and the sequel that never was, Motherhood
    -The Profligate Door, a documentary about Borowczyk’s sound sculptures featuring curator Maurice Corbet
    -Boro Brunch, a reunion meal recorded in February 2014 reuniting members of Borowczyk’s crew
    -Commercials by Borowczyk: Holy Smoke (1963), The Museum (1964) and Tom Thumb (1966)
    -Gunpoint, a documentary short by Peter Graham produced and edited by Borowczyk (11:04)
    -Behind Enemy Lines - The Making of Gunpoint (5:16)
    -Theatrical trailer
    -Reversible sleeve featuring Borowczyk’s own original poster design
    -Illustrated booklet featuring new writing on the film by Daniel Bird and an archive piece by David Thompson, illustrated with original stills

    Arrow's release of Story of Sin, is a thing of beauty.

    Not seen this one before, but it reminded me a lot of Marquis de Sade's Justine in narrative.
