I actually shouted at this news. This is my favorite documentary ever made and it'll be a joy to replace my oft-watched Facets disc with what is sure to be a beautiful transfer. I love you Second Run.

It seems after much delay SR releases are once again available to order from Arrow’s webstore - hopeful they’ll be included in special offers as they were on the old site.

Yeah, hopefully more of an offer than the current one (£15 per title; same price as getting it from anywhere else such as HMV/Fopp, Amazon, TheEntertainmentStore etc).

The biggest non-sale of the year. In fact they are cheaper in Fopp and HMV where some are included in 2 for £25 offers.

Jonathan Keogh of Criterion tweeted, I assume, about Second Run? Does anyone have any news?

It would be nice to get a sale on Second Run Blu-rays, either via the Arrow website or in store at Fopp. I can’t be the only one with an ever growing wishlist of Second Run titles, yet I’m always been enticed by all the labels to pick up their releases first.

I just placed a second order myself for Second Run titles alone. They were all virtual blind buys since I've never seen any of them before, but Vampir Cuadecuc, Intimate Lightning, Invention for Destruction, The Fabulous Baron Munchausen and A Case for a Rookie Hangman were all 10 quid apiece. (The last one is down to limited availability, but the others are still in the 'green.') Pretty glad for this sale, I'm a big fan of Cutter's Way and Terry Gilliam's own adaptation of Munchausen (not to mention his animated work), so I'm sure I'll enjoy these quite a bit.

Second Run launches a new and distinctive VOD service from June 1st.

As the world reacts to the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Second Run have been thinking how we might reach an online audience and at the same time try to help those special independent UK and Eire cinemas who have always supported us, but for whom this period could prove disastrous?

Second Run founder Mehelli Modi explains: "We felt that the answer was to first create a new VOD service, providing the option to rent our releases directly from Second Run. Then, and most importantly, from each and every rental we would give an equal share from our proceeds to a selection of independent cinemas that have been forced to close. This is a contribution with our thanks to those cinemas which have to remain dark at the moment. We hope this will amount to something helpful and will reflect how important an independent cinema is to communities everywhere."

The details: each month we will present an evolving mix of world cinema, guided by our ethos of bringing important, challenging and entertaining classic and contemporary films to discerning viewers at the special price of £4.99 per title. Selected UK and Eire independent cinemas will receive a share from each rental fee.

We launch the service on Monday 1st June with a selection of 10 films from across the globe by some of our favourite filmmakers, curated to reflect the very special talents, cultures and philosophies which this unique art form embraces.

Viewers in the UK and Eire can then experience on demand these significant films which we love and admire – whilst we look forward to the time when we can all once again enjoy the space, experience and sensuousness of watching films together in a cinema. Please join us.

LITTLE WHITE LIES choose their 20 Best Home Entertainment releases of 2020.
A wonderful selection - and ecstatic to find GOODBYE, DRAGON INN is at the #1 spot. Shivendra Singh Dungarpur's passionate epic CZECHMATE at #5.

A bad list. I suppose they did not secure a copy of Second Sight's Dawn of The Dead, which is an all time great home video release. What is the point of putting Arrow's The Game on here? I suppose the author likes The Game but any of Arrow's UHDs would have been better picks. No Columbia Noir, Varda, or Scorsese WCP #3.

I agree that the list is awful, but those two Second Run titles are definitely top 5 for me too.

I mean, if nothing else, the book accompanying this edition is the most extensive one I can think of this year outside of Arrow's Trip to the Moon

A book that he doesn't even mention in his blurb.

It seems to be a UK-only list (or at least titles available in the UK as well as the US), so your last two suggestions presumably wouldn't be eligible. And I suspect modesty forbade the inclusion of Columbia Noir #1 since the editor of Little White Lies is one of the contributors (commentary on 5 Against the House).

He did the commentary on 'Boiling Point' in the Kitano collection too.

Sadly, this does not herald the imminent arrival of Blu-rays.

(Absolutely not Second Run's choice, but there's nothing they can do about it right now.)

Marc Isaacs' latest The Filmmaker's House (featured at Hot Docs) starts with a Second Run logo. Maybe a future release?
