The 100: The Complete Fourth Season
The fight to survive has torn The 100 apart, turned them against each other, and taken the lives of their closest friends. Last season, our heroes found themselves at the epicenter of both the Grounder world and the struggle for Arkadia’s soul. Despite their best efforts, war appeared unavoidable, until a new, even more dangerous threat – one that had been quietly rising all along – exploded to the surface: ALIE, the A.I. that ended the world, offered relief from pain and eternal life in the “City of Light.” But as her ranks grew, it quickly became clear that she was building an army dedicated to controlling all sentient life on Earth. This was no longer a battle between warring factions; it was a fight for humanity itself. Now, a hard truth lands on the shoulders of those who remain. Will they go quietly into the night, or will they find hope and faith in each other, as they face their darkest chapter yet?
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 13 time Academy Award Nominee 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 US, there has never been a better time to discover one of this iconic filmmaker’s most assured and uniquely haunting efforts.

Maurice Ronet (Purple Noon) stars as Giuseppe Lagana, a European playboy who returns to his home in the Sicilian town of Catania to settle his deceased father s affairs. He reunites with an old friend, Caterina (Lisa Gastoni), and a mid-life romance is kindled from the sparks of their youthful attraction. But Giuseppe fi nds he is not immune to the sexual magnetism of Caterina s teenage daughter, Graziella (Jenny Tamburi). Soon Giuseppe s paternal affection evolves into adult passion, and he and Graziella are engaged in a tempestuous affair, willfully ignoring the consequences should Caterina discover them. Though best known for his bloody poliziotteschi, Fernando Di Leo (Shoot First, Die Later) proved himself just as adept at the erotic thriller, savoring the irresistible charm of the modern Lolita, while masterfully building tension around a love affair that, by its very nature, is destined to end tragically.

DVD SPECIAL FEATURE: Bonus Featurette
Film composer Carrie Bonner moves into a secluded house in the woods with her newlywed husband. But bliss turns to suspicion and paranoia following encounters with a shotgun-toting neighbor and a dangerous intruder. Determined, Carrie pursues the violent mystery surrounding her new home…a home that may be host to sinister supernatural forces. A chillingly complex mystery-revenge thriller, Animosity will haunt you long after the final frame. Bonus features: ”Demon’s Bite” short film, audio commentary, outtakes and behind-the-scenes, trailers.
After encountering a ghost in his vacation home, terrified Dan Pappadakis (Steve Zissis, Togetherness) goes behind his wife s back to hire an industrial grade exorcist the bizarre and needy Os Bijourn. While implementing a variety of increasingly outlandish ghost traps, Os tries to befriend Dan almost as relentlessly as he tries to destroy the home s demons. Dan considers calling the whole thing off, but it quickly becomes apparent that a great evil has embedded itself in his home, and that the fate of his entire family is at stake.
Deftly mixing sardonic wit with the supernatural and not-so supernatural, Carson Mell s ANOTHER EVIL is uncomfortably comical proof that more than just ghosts can haunt a house.
