Arrow Academy continues to release some of the most important films and TV shows from around the world this October with four amazing titles in definitive Blu-Ray, DVD and Dual Format editions.
Continuing with their collection of Woody Allen titles on Blu-Ray, October sees the UK release of Love and Death and Sleeper, both starring Allen and longtime collaborator Diane Keaton. While Love and Death is Allen’s satirical ode to the Russian literature he loves, Sleeper is a dystopian look into the future as Allen discovers a world where all men are impotent and all women are frigid.
Later in the month, Arrow Academy releases the final film of the late Andrzej Żuławski, Cosmos, to cinephiles in spectacular Blu-ray and DVD formats. Cosmos blends French farce with a knowing reflection on the absurdities of humanity to create a fascinating and beguiling experience.
Lovers of the small screen, meanwhile, will relish the chance to get their hands on Dekalog and Other Television Works, which explores the television career of Krzysztof Kieślowski through all 10 episodes of Dekalog (presented here in a beautiful 4K restoration) as well as compiling almost all of Kieślowski’s TV work.
Arrow Academy editions combine wonderful restorations, the highest quality presentations and fascinating extras and special features to create a really unique and interesting experience for lovers of film and TV from across the globe.
