LA JETÉE / SANS SOLEIL (1962-83) - (The Criterion Collection - #387) [DVD9]
2 Films by Chris Marker
Art-House | 1.33:1 / 1.66:1 | B&W and Color | French Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 128 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 8.54 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

One of the most influential, radical science-fiction films ever made and a mind-bending free-form travelogue, La Jetée and Sans Soleil couldn’t seem more different—yet they’re the twin pillars of one of the most daring and uncompromising careers in cinema history. Chris Marker, filmmaker, poet, novelist, photographer, editor, and now videographer and digital multimedia artist, has been challenging moviegoers, philosophers, and himself for years with his complex queries about time, memory, and the rapid advancement of life on this planet. These two films—a tale of time travel told in still images and a journey to Africa and Japan—remain his best-loved and most widely seen.

THE BURMESE HARP (1956) - (The Criterion Collection - #379) [DVD9]
A Film by Kon Ichikawa
Art-House | 1.33:1 | Black and White | Japanese Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 116 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 7.79 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

An Imperial Japanese Army regiment surrenders to British forces in Burma at the close of World War II and finds harmony through song. A private, thought to be dead, disguises himself as a Buddhist monk and stumbles upon spiritual enlightenment. Magnificently shot in hushed black and white, Kon Ichikawa’s The Burmese Harp is an eloquent meditation on beauty coexisting with death and remains one of Japanese cinema’s most overwhelming antiwar statements, both tender and brutal in its grappling with Japan’s wartime legacy.

VENGEANCE IS MINE (1979) - (The Criterion Collection - #384) [DVD9]
A Film by Shohei Imamura
Art-House | 1.66:1 | Color | Japanese Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 140 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 7.96 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

A thief, murderer, and charming lady-killer, Iwao Enokizu (Ken Ogata) is on the run from the police. Director Shohei Imamura turns this fact-based story, of the seventy-eight-day killing spree of a remorseless man from a devoutly Catholic family, into a cold, perverse, and at times diabolically funny tale of the primitive coexisting with the modern. More than just a true-crime case, Vengeance Is Mine bares mankind’s snarling id.

LES ENFANTS TERRIBLES (1950) - (The Criterion Collection - #398) [DVD9]
A Film by Jean-Pierre Melville
Art-House | 1.33:1 | Black and White | French Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 106 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 8.34 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

Writer Jean Cocteau and director Jean-Pierre Melville joined forces for this elegant adaptation of Cocteau’s immensely popular, wicked novel about the wholly unholy relationship between a brother and sister. Elisabeth (a remarkable Nicole Stéphane) and Paul (Edouard Dermithe) close themselves off from the world by playing an increasingly intense series of mind games with the people who dare enter their lair—until romance and jealousy intrude. Melville’s operatic camera movements and Cocteau’s perverse, poetic approach to character merge in Les enfants terribles to create one of French cinema’s greatest, and most surprising, meetings of the minds.

IVAN’S CHILDHOOD (1962) - (The Criterion Collection - #397) [DVD9]
A Film by Andrei Tarkovsky
Art-House | 1.33:1 | Black and White | Russian Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 95 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 7.3 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

The debut feature from the great Andrei Tarkovsky, Ivan’s Childhood is an evocative, poetic journey through the shadows and shards of one boy’s war-torn youth. Moving back and forth between the traumatic realities of WWII and the serene moments of family life before the conflict began, Tarkovsky’s film remains one of the most jarring and unforgettable depictions of the impact of violence on children in wartime.

BORDER RADIO (1987) - (The Criterion Collection - #362) [DVD9]
A Film by Allison Anders, Dean Lent and Kurt Voss
Art-House | 1.33:1 | Black and White | English Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 83 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 7.61 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

Before carving out a niche as one of the most distinct voices in nineties American cinema, Allison Anders made her debut, alongside codirectors and fellow UCLA film school students Kurt Voss and Dean Lent, with 1987’s Border Radio. A low-key, semi-improvised postpunk diary that took four years to complete, Border Radio features legendary rocker Chris D., of the Flesh Eaters, as a singer/songwriter who has stolen loot from a club and gone missing, leaving his wife (Luanna Anders), a no-nonsense rock journalist, to track him down with the help of his friends (John Doe of the band X; Chris Shearer). With its sprawling Southern Californian and Mexican landscapes, captured in evocative 16mm black and white, Border Radio is a singular, DIY memento of the indie film explosion in America.

GREEN FOR DANGER (1946) - (The Criterion Collection - #375) [DVD9]
A Film by Sidney Gilliat
Art-House | 1.33:1 | Black and White | English Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 91 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 5.59 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

In the midst of Nazi air raids, a postman dies on the operating table at a rural English hospital. But was the death accidental? A delightful and wholly unexpected murder mystery, British writer/director Sidney Gilliat’s Green for Danger features Trevor Howard and Sally Gray as suspected doctors and Alastair Sim in a marvelous turn as Scotland Yard’s insouciant Inspector Cockrill. A screenwriter who had worked with Hitchcock on such films as The Lady Vanishes and Jamaica Inn, Gilliat slyly upends whodunit conventions with wit and style.

THE FALLEN IDOL (1948) - (The Criterion Collection - #357) [DVD9]
A Film by Carol Reed
Art-House | 1.33:1 | Black and White | English Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 95 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 7.61 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

The Fallen Idol was the first of three masterpieces to result from the legendary meeting of director Carol Reed and writer Graham Greene, who together would also create The Third Man and Our Man in Havana. Elegantly balancing suspense and farce, this tale of the fraught relationship between a boy and the beloved butler he suspects of murder is a delightfully macabre thriller of the first order and a visually and verbally dazzling knockout.

SWEETIE (1989) - (The Criterion Collection - #356) [DVD9]
A Film by Jane Campion

Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 8.26 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

Though she went on to create a string of brilliant films, Jane Campion will always be remembered for her stunning debut feature, Sweetie, which focuses on the hazardous relationship between the buttoned-down, superstitious Kay and her rampaging, devil-may-care sister, "Sweetie"—and by extension, their entire family’s profoundly rotten roots. A feast of colorful photography and captivating, idiosyncratic characters, Sweetie heralded the emergence of this gifted director as well as the breakthrough of Australian cinema, which would take international film by storm in the nineties.

Tormented by twisted desires, a young man takes drastic measures to rid his grotesquely dysfunctional family of its various afflictions in this astonishing 1965 debut from Marco Bellocchio. Charged by a coolly assured style, shocking perversity, and savage gallows humor, Fists in the Pocket was a gleaming ice pick in the eye of bourgeois family values and Catholic morality, a truly unique work that continues to rank as one of the great achievements of Italian cinema.

A timeless evocation of childhood innocence corrupted, René Clément’s Forbidden Games tells the story of a young girl orphaned by war and the farm boy she joins in a fantastical world of macabre play. At once mythical and heartbreakingly real, this unique film features astonishing performances by its child stars and was honored with a special foreign language film Academy Award in 1952.

Robert Bresson’s incomparable tale of crime and redemption follows Michel, a young pickpocket who spends his days working the streets, subway cars, and train stations of Paris. As his compulsion grows, however, so too does his fear that his luck is about to run out. Tautly choreographed and crafted in Bresson’s inimitable style, Pickpocket reveals a master director at the height of his powers.

The House of Mirth
By F. Edith Wharton
Wordsworth Classics | October 5, 2021 | ISBN: 9781840224191 / 1840224193
English | 320 pages | HQ PDF | 31.6 MB | RS

The House of Mirth tells the story of Lily Bart, aged 29, beautiful, impoverished and in need of a rich husband to safeguard her place in the social elite, and to support her expensive habits - her clothes, her charities and her gambling. Unwilling to marry without both love and money, Lily becomes vulnerable to the kind of gossip and slander which attach to a girl who has been on the marriage market for too long. Wharton charts the course of Lily's life, providing, along the way, a wider picture of a society in transition, a rapidly changing New York where the old certainties of manners, morals and family have disappeared and the individual has become an expendable commodity.

MASCULIN FÉMININ (1966) - (The Criterion Collection - #308) [DVD9]
A Film by Jean-Luc Godard
Art-House | 1.33:1 | Black and White | French Dolby Digital 1.0 | English Subtitles | 110 min.
Full Original Dual-Layer DVD Image (.ISO) + HQ PDF Scans & Booklet = 8.36 GBs | 200MB RARs | RS

With Masculin féminin, ruthless stylist and iconoclast Jean-Luc Godard introduces the world to “the children of Marx and Coca-Cola,” through a gang of restless youths engaged in hopeless love affairs with music, revolution, and each other. French new wave icon Jean-Pierre Leaud stars as Paul, an idealistic would-be intellectual struggling to forge a relationship with the adorable pop star Madeleine (real-life yé-yé girl Chantal Goya). Through their tempestuous affair, Godard fashions a candid and wildly funny free-form examination of youth culture in throbbing 1960s Paris, mixing satire and tragedy as only Godard can.
