Stormy Monday
16,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

In 1988, Mike Figgis (Internal Affairs, Leaving Las Vegas) made his feature directorial debut with Stormy Monday, a taut, noir-influenced gangster movie that drew on his key formative influences, including his youth in the Newcastle of the late ’50s and early ’60s, and the city’s vibrant jazz scene. Sean Bean (Ronin) plays Brendan, a young loafer taken under the wing of jazz club owner Finney (Sting, Quadrophenia), who’s under pressure from American mobster Cosmo (Tommy Lee Jones, The Fugitive) to sell up in exchange for a cut of a local land development deal. Brendan just wants to earn an honest crust, but his burgeoning relationship with Cosmo’s ex-lover Kate (Melanie Griffith, Body Double) threatens to drag him into the middle of the impending showdown… A romantic crime thriller with genuine heart, Stormy Monday features striking, rain-drenched cinematography by Roger Deakins (The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men) and a seductive jazz score provided by the director himself. Presented here for the first time in high definition in the UK, there has never been a better time to discover one of this iconic filmmaker’s most assured and uniquely haunting efforts.

Kansas City

zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Returning to the city of his birth for inspiration, legendary maverick director Robert Altman helms an evocative, bullet-riddled tribute to the music and movies of his youth in Kansas City, a Depression-era gangster flick as only he could make one. Blondie O’Hara (Jennifer Jason Leigh) resorts to desperate measures when her low-level hood husband Johnny (Dermot Mulroney) gets caught trying to steal from Seldom Seen (Harry Belafonte), a local crime boss operating out of jazz haunt The Hey-Hey Club. Out on a limb, Blondie kidnaps laudanum-addled socialite Carolyn (Miranda Richardson), hoping her influential politician husband can pull the right strings and get Johnny out of Seldom Seen’s clutches. Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes, and featuring a remarkable soundtrack performed live by some of the best players in contemporary jazz, one of Altman’s most underrated and idiosyncratic films finally makes its long-awaited Blu-ray™ debut.

Who`s afraid of Baroque?Vincenzo Capezzuto e Soqquadro ItalianoMusik von A. Stradella, A. Piccinini, L. Rossi, G. C. Cortese, A. Falconieri, D. Mazzocchi, G. B. Vitali, D. Micheletti, D. Gabrielli, S. de Murcia und traditionelle italienische Musik. Zum Auftakt: Alice Rossi (Sopran, Opernschule der HMDK Stuttgart) Who?s afraid of Baroque? ist kein Theaterstück wie es dem Titel nach scheint und noch weniger ein Konzert nach klassischem Muster. Es ist ein bunter und aufregender Querschnitt der Musik und der italienischen Kultur des Seicento: ein Dialog zwischen Antike und Moderne, ein raffiniertes Spiel der Fusion zwischen Improvisation, Jazz, Commedia dell?Arte und Swing. Vincenzo Capezzuto ist Tänzer und Sänger: er war zwischen 2005 und 2011 Solotänzer der italienischen Tanzkompanie Aterballetto und in derselben Position u.a. auch beim English National Ballet. 2009 wurde er von Christina Pluhar als Sänger entdeckt und ist seitdem regelmäßig mit deren Ensemble L?Arpeggiata als Solist auf Bühnen wie der Carnegie Hall in New York oder bei den Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspielen zu Gast. Mit dem Regisseur Claudio Borgianni gründete er das gattungsübergreifende Kunstprojekt Soqquadro Italiano, mit dem er u.a. auf der Biennale von Venedig zu erleben war.Eine Veranstaltung des Italienischen Kulturinstituts Stuttgart und der Opernschule der HMDK Stuttgart in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Wilhelma Theater und dem Verein ?Freunde des Italienischen Kulturinstituts Stuttgart e.V.?.

29,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

SA Recordings presents the soundtrack to Clayton Vomero’s ‘3OHA’ (or ‘Zona’ in English), featuring original music by Alex Epton and Lucinda Chua. The film was shot on location in Russia and Ukraine, revealing the outsider lives of young people in Kiev, Moscow, Vladimir and St. Petersburg. Part docufilm, part archival history lesson and part impressionistic emotional evocation, ‘3OHA’ explores elements of 20th century soviet culture and history, now diffracted through the cracked lens of western capitalist consumerism. A classically trained jazz musician with multiple sought-after skills, Alex Epton has either performed or recorded with, produced or remixed Thom Yorke, Björk, David Byrne, Arca, Oneohtrix Point Never, FKA Twigs, Onyx Collective, Wiki, LCD Soundsystem, Kele, Vampire Weekend, Charlotte Gainsbourg, TV On The Radio, Kali Uchis and Kylie Minogue. Tipped as ‘One To Watch’ by NTS radio, Lucinda Chua is an accomplished singer, cellist and songwriter whose live performances include FKA Twigs’ ‘Magdalene’ world tour and GAIKA’s ‘AKIRA’ remix event. These follow collaborations with Ben Vince, Helm, K Á R Y Y N, Westerman and Nabihah Iqbal. Recorded in close collaboration with Vomero, the hauntological score complements the film’s montage of recollection, aspiration, assimilation, romance, ennui and resignation, which although factual, has a deeply impressionistic and uncanny feel. Across thirteen tracks Epton explores phosphorescent audio ether and lazer-guided futurism that is rich with pathos and humanity, yet deeply otherworldly – augmented at points by Chua’s plaintive strings, synths and vocals. Limited edition gatefold LP Pressed on black heavyweight vinyl
