A Sense Of Freedom

Described as one of the hardest-hitting prison dramas in British screen history A Sense Of Freedom, the striking true story about notorious reformed Glasgow gangster Jimmy Boyle, comes to DVD courtesy of Odyssey.

Charged with murder twice and cleared when barely into his twenties, Jimmy Boyle was Scotland's most feared gangster - a Gorbals 'hard man' notorious for his extreme violence. Then he got a taste of his own medicine when he was sentenced to life in a Scottish prison where the regime, with its punishment beatings and solitary confinement, was every bit as brutal as that on the street. Yet out of this bleak and seemingly dead-end system of crime and punishment came an extraordinary chance of redemption, which drove Boyle to make something positive of his life in ways that neither he nor anyone else could ever have imagined.

Directed by John Mackenzie (The Long Good Friday) and featuring a sensational lead performance from Trial & Retribution star David Hayman, the BAFTA-nominated A Sense of Freedom remains one of the most searing, shocking and thought-provoking prison dramas ever seen and is released on DVD on 23 November 2015, in both its blistering original version and a controversial later dubbed and edited version.

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.

Set in the idyllic, sleepy hamlet of Portwenn in Cornwall, Dr. Martin Ellingham (Clunes - Men Behaving Badly), the town's sole GP with a brusque bedside manner and a phobia of blood, returns for eight new episodes of the ratings winning drama, as he continues to challenge the community, his wife and even Buddy, a stray dog, who cannot resist his fervent rebuffs.
