Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense: A band at the peak of their powers. A beautifully staged, carefully choreographed performance. The one with the boom box and Psycho Killer at the start. The Talking Heads one by one joining front man David Byrne on stage. The one where he dances with a lampshade. The one directed by the big name Hollywood director. The one with the big suit at the end.

No wonder Stop Making Sense is rightfully acknowledged as being the best concert film and the best music film ever and is still, more than 30 years after its original release, the yardstick by which all other music films are measured by...

And now, Stop Making Sense is set to arrive on Blu-ray and DVD in a definitive, restored edition - with more than 60,000 instances of dirt and scratches removed - from Second Sight on 16 November 2015.

The Immortal Story, Welles' penultimate film as a director, a film described as a "sumptuous experience" (Time Out) has now been given a sumptuous, high definition transfer courtesy of Mr Bongo Films, with the Blu-ray due on 2 November 2015 marking its first HD release in any territory.

Fresh Dressed

The birth and history of hip hop has been well documented, from the music, block parties and digging in the crates for breaks to graffiti and breakdancing, all proving rich subjects for documentaries. But the accompanying fashion, the groundbreaking styles sported by early artists and fans of the genre, whose rush to find new threads, kicks and accessories went beyond Adidas sneakers and tracksuits to customised, graffiti jackets, Kangol hats and far, far beyond, hasn't been given the attention it deserves...Until now.

Fly feature documentary Fresh Dressed charts the innovative, weird and wonderful styles worn by hip-hop artists, rappers and crews from the inception of the movement through to the multi-million dollar fashion empires built by current megastars such as Sean "Puffy" Combs.

With funky, fat-laced Adidas, Kangol hats, and Cazal shades, a totally original look was born - Fresh - and it came from the black and brown side of town where another cultural force was revving up in the streets to take the world by storm. Hip-hop, and its aspirational relationship to fashion, would become such a force on the market that Tommy Hilfiger, in an effort to associate their brand with the cultural swell, would drive through the streets and hand out free clothing to kids on the corner.

As Kanye West - one of the many rap icons interviewed for Sacha Jenkins' Fresh Dressed - says: "Being fresh is more important than having money. The entire time I grew up, I only wanted money so I could be fresh."

Sean "Puffy" Combs, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nas and many more all wax lyrical on the importance of being Fresh Dressed in this fascinating film, due in cinemas on 30 October 2015, courtesy of Dogwoof, following its London Film Festival Premiere. The film will then make its DVD bow on 9 November 2015.
