Branded to Kill (1967)

bran123.jpg


Originaltitel: Koroshi no rakuin
Herstellungsland: Japan
Erscheinungsjahr: 1967
Regie: Seijun Suzuki
Darsteller: Jô Shishido, Mariko Ogawa, Mari Annu, Kôji Nanbara, Isao Tamagawa, Hiroshi Minami


When Japanese New Wave bad boy Seijun Suzuki delivered this brutal, hilarious, and visually inspired masterpiece to the executives at his studio, he was promptly fired. Branded to Kill (Koroshi no rakuin) tells the ecstatically bent story of a yakuza assassin with a fetish for sniffing steamed rice (the chipmunk-cheeked superstar Joe Shishido) who botches a job and ends up a target himself. This is Suzuki at his most extreme—the flabbergasting pinnacle of his sixties pop-art aesthetic.

4K UHD + Blu-ray Special Edition Features:

- New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
- One 4K UHD disc of the film and one Blu-ray with the film and special features
- Interviews with director Seijun Suzuki and assistant director Masami Kuzuu
- Interview with Suzuki from 1997
- Interview with actor Joe Shishido

Nach einem missglückten Attentat auf den südkoreanischen Präsidenten beginnt die Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) mit der Suche nach einem Maulwurf in ihrer Mitte. Park Pyong-ho, Leiter der Auslandsabteilung, und Kim Jung-do, Leiter der Inlandsabteilung, erhalten den Auftrag, den nordkoreanischen Spion mit dem Decknamen Donglim zu enttarnen. Die beiden Männer müssen ihre persönlichen Differenzen beiseiteschieben und so schnell wie möglich die Identität des Maulwurfs aufdecken, denn es stehen Menschenleben auf dem Spiel. (1 4K Ultra HD + 1 Blu-ray) SQUID GAME-Star Lee Jung-jae gelang ein spektakuläres Regiedebüt: HUNT erweist sich als grandioser Mix aus Spionage-, Polit- und Actionthriller - DAME, KÖNIG, AS, SPION trifft auf JFK und HEAT. Sein in Cannes gefeierter Film gibt von Anfang an mächtig Gas, wilde Verfolgungsjagden, epische Schusswechsel und atemberaubende Stunts sorgen für 130 aufregende Minuten. Der wendungsreiche und wuchtige Thriller, so ein Kritiker, ist "ein Paradebeispiel des koreanischen Actionkinos".

The Game Trilogy (1978 - 1979)

Unbenannt-1.jpg

Made at the end of the 1970s, Toru Murakawa's Game Trilogy launched actor Yusaku Matsuda as the Toei tough guy for a new generation. Matsuda was the definitive screen icon of 1980s until his career was tragically cut short by cancer at the age of 40, following his Hollywood debut in Ridley Scott’s Black Rain.

In this career-defining triptych, Matsuda is Shohei Narumi, an ice cool hitman of few words, a steely trigger finger, and a heart of stone, hired in The Most Dangerous Game by a company bidding for a lucrative government air defence contract to take out the competition. In The Killing Game, Narumi finds himself caught in the midst of violent yakuza gang warfare, while his own brutal past catches up with him in the form of two beautiful women still bearing the emotional scars of his past assignments. In The Execution Game, Narumi falls for a mysterious saloon bar chanteuse who may or may not be part of the same, shadowy underworld organisation as the rival hitmen he is employed to rub out.

Released for the very first time outside Japan, with their cool blue cinematography by Nagisa Oshima collaborator Seizo Sengen and a sultry score by jazz legend Yuji Ohno, Murakawa’s masterful set of films raised the bar for the Japanese Action & Adventure movie to new heights.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentations of all films
Original lossless mono Japanese soundtracks
Optional newly translated English subtitles

Bruce Lee at Golden Harvest Limited Edition

---


When former child actor and Hollywood TV sidekick Bruce Lee returned to his native Hong Kong in 1971 to star in two films for fledgling company Golden Harvest, movie history was made thanks to one of the most iconic partnerships between star and studio that cinema has ever seen. In only a handful of films, Lee high-kicked his way into audiences’ imaginations forever, thanks to his blistering screen presence and his masterful ‘Jeet Kune Do’ fighting technique.

The first two starring vehicles for Lee, The Big Boss and Fist of Fury (both directed by Lo Wei), smashed all box office records in Hong Kong and made him the most famous face on the continent. Lee asserted his artistic independence by directing, writing and starring in The Way of the Dragon, arguably his most thrilling and personal film. Tragically, on the cusp of achieving the international stardom he had long strived for, Bruce Lee died suddenly in 1973, aged only 32. Not to be outdone by the tidal wave of ‘Bruceploitation’ films that followed, Golden Harvest completed two posthumous films using unreleased footage, 1978’s Game of Death and its 1981 sequel, as well as two official documentaries, the first of which hit cinemas only three months after Lee’s death. Today, five decades since his passing, Bruce Lee continues to be the most beloved and influential martial artist in the world.

This definitive collection, featuring fresh and exclusive 4K restorations by Arrow Video from the best available film materials, hours of brand new bonus features and previously unreleased footage - including the extended Mandarin Cut of The Big Boss, now ten minutes longer than any version ever released on video worldwide, and the never-before-seen ‘log fight’ from the original Game of Death shoot - is the ultimate tribute to Bruce Lee’s enduring legacy and fruitful collaboration with Golden Harvest.

Fearless Shaolin : Four Films by Joseph Kuo

- Shaolin Kung Fu
- The Shaolin Kids
- 18 Bronzemen
- Return of the 18 Bronzemen

kuo1.jpg

SYNOPSIS:

Although his name may not be as instantly recognisable as some of his contemporaries, Joseph Kuo was an incredibly successful filmmaker who consistently produced crowd-pleasing spectacles always in line with what audiences at the time wanted to see. Fearless Shaolin! collects four action-packed Joseph Kuo titles; Shaolin Kung Fu, The Shaolin Kids, 18 Bronzemen, and Return of the 18 Bronzemen

In Shaolin Kung Fu, a young rickshaw driver uses his lethal martial arts skills to cut a path of bloody revenge when criminals target his family. And in The Shaolin Kids, a ruthless premiere assassinates a political rival, and must face the wrath of his deadly daughter

Before students can leave the Shaolin temple, they must face a series of challenges and defeat the Shaolin Bronzemen, deadly fighters—some wielding weapons, others heavily armoured—who destroy anyone who crosses their path. Carter Wong (Big Trouble in Little China) will challenge them in both 18 Bronzemen and Return of the 18 Bronzemen.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

- 1080p presentations of all four films across two Blu-ray discs
- Original Mandarin audio tracks
- Optional English dubbed audio for Shaolin Kung Fu, The Shaolin Kids, and Return of the 18 Bronzemen
- Optional English subtitles
- Audio commentaries on Shaolin Kung Fu and The Shaolin Kids with action cinema experts Mike Leeder and Arne Venema
- Audio commentaries on 18 Bronzemen and Return of the 18 Bronzemen with Asian film expert Frank Djeng and film writer John Charles (The Hong Kong Filmography, 1977–1997)
- 8 Bronzemen: The Hong Kong Version – a reconstruction of the original theatrical release version of 18 Bronzemen
