UK DVD & Blu-ray Releases: Monday 17th October 2011


Pulp Fiction (Miramax): Quentin Tarantino’s landmark 1994 film won him the Palme d’Or and was a critical and commercial phenomenon. The looping, patchwork narrative and distinctive dialogue spawned many imitators but has never been bettered, even by Tarantino himself.  [Buy it on Blu-ray or DVD]

Cave of Forgotten Dreams (Revolver Entertainment):  Werner Herzog’s latest documentary is an awe-inspiring 3D exploration of the ancient Chauvet cave in France. Almost working as a companion piece to Encounters at the End of the World (2007), this takes an interior look at a truly remarkable place. [Buy it on Blu-ray or DVD]
