Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido Anselmi, a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life. One of the greatest films about film ever made, Federico Fellini’s 8½ (Otto e mezzo) turns one man’s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. An early working title for 8½ was The Beautiful Confusion, and Fellini’s masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream, a circus, and a magic act.

Jean-Paul Belmondo delivers a subtly sensual performance in the hot-under-the-collar Léon Morin, Priest (Léon Morin, prêtre), directed by Jean-Pierre Melville. The French superstar plays a devoted man of the cloth who is desired by all the women of a small village in Nazi-occupied France. He finds himself most drawn to a sexually frustrated widow—played by Emmanuelle Riva—a religious skeptic whose relationship with her confessor turns into a confrontation with both God and her own repressed desire. A triumph of mood, setting, and innuendo, Léon Morin, Priest is an irreverent pleasure from one of French cinema’s towering virtuosos.

EVE comes to realize that WALL-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL-E chases EVE across the galaxy.

A Film by David Lynch

Audio: English AC3 5.1/2.0 @ 448/224 Kbps | Subtitles: None
Genre: Mystery, Thriller | Nominated for Oscar + 33 wins | France, USA

Beautiful, bizarre and strangely addictive Mullholland Drive begins as a botched hit results in the meeting of bruised brunette amnesiac Rita (Laura Harring) and blonde would-be Hollywood actress Betty (Naomi Watts – King Kong, 21 Grams). Taking the viewer on a memorable neo-noir trip through Hollywood’s dark underbelly, Lynch dispenses with a conventional narrative in favour of an hallucinogenic assault on the senses that will stay with you long after the credits roll.

Mascagni - Cavalleria Rusticana; Leoncavallo - I Pagliacci (Jesus Lopez Cobos, Urmana, Galouzine, Bayo) (2007) [BluRay-rip]

Mascagni - Cavalleria Rusticana; Leoncavallo - I Pagliacci (Jesus Lopez Cobos, Urmana, Galouzine, Bayo) (2007) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1280x720 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 29,970 fps | 150 min | 12,5GB
Audio: Italian / PCM / 5ch / 48.0 KHz / 24 bits
Sub: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian

Stage Director Giancarlo del Monaco (the son of the famed dramatic tenor, Mario) flat-out rejects the notion that Cavalleria rusticana or Pagliacci should be performed with anything except each other. In an interview included on this Opus Arte Blu-ray release, del Monaco emphatically notes that these operas represent “the fundamental diptych of realist theater;” that they are “two sides of the same coin.” As with many other productions, del Monaco presents Pagliacci ’s Prologue before the Mascagni work, Tonio appearing in the midst of the audience to underscore that the verismo evening ahead is meant to connect to everyone’s real-world experience. A seamless integration of the two dramas is further highlighted when Turridu’s lifeless body is driven off the stage just as the first chords of Pagliacci are sounding.
Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker (Nina Kaptsova, Artem Ovcharenko) (2010) [BluRay-rip]

Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker (Nina Kaptsova, Artem Ovcharenko) (2010) [BluRay-rip]

Audio: DTS / 6ch / 48.0 KHz / 16 bits

A masterpiece of classical dance, and a Christmas favourite with audiences everywhere, this Nutcracker is a magical version of the score by Tchaikovsky filmed at the Bolshoi Theatre. Since its première in Saint-Petersburg in 1892, The Nutcracker has been one of the most successful classical ballets and Tchaikovsky's score has become one of his most famous compositions. Yuri Grigorovich deals with Hoffmann s fantastic imagery and takes ideas from Marius Petipa s scenario: battle of the mice, snowflakes flurry, character dances executed by the dolls that came to life… The most talented soloists of the Bolshoi Ballet appear in this production including Nina Kaptsova (Marie) and Artem Ovcharenko (the Nutcracker Prince) and Denis Savin (Drosselmeyer).
Rachmaninov - The Miserly Knight (Vladimir Jurowski, Sergei Leiferkus) (2004) [BluRay-rip]

Rachmaninov - The Miserly Knight (Vladimir Jurowski, Sergei Leiferkus) (2004) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 25,0 fps | 65 min | 6,04GB
Audio: Russian / PCM / 6ch / 48.0 KHz / 24 bits
Sub: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian

Vladimir Jurowski conducts Rachmaninov's dark setting of Alexander Pushkin's 'little tragedy' with an outstanding performance from Sergei Leiferkus in the role written for the great Russian bass Fyodor Chaliapin. Rahmaninov's dramatically brooding score - beautifully recorded in an atmospheric surround sound - portrays the miser consumed by the power of his glinting gold, as it pushes him to his ultimate collapse.

“Glyndebourne has a first-rate lyric comedian in Alessandro Corbelli and a conductor who handles the music with feeling for its tenderness as well as its brio. The lovers, Sally Matthews and Massimo Giordano, bring fresh voices and good looks, and among the mean old relatives Felicity Palmer's brazen-voiced Zita is a joy. Small parts like the Notary's assistants the boy who brings the news that Gianni is on his way are played with relish, and even the corpse of Buoso Donati comes to life as he falls out of the cupboard where he has been bestowed and takes a brisk curtain-call at the end.” (Grammophone)
Puccini - La Boheme (Andris Nelsons, Hibla Gerzmava, Teodor Ilincai) (2009) [BluRay-rip]

Puccini - La Bohème (Andris Nelsons, Hibla Gerzmava, Teodor Ilincai) (2009) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 25,0 fps | 121 min | 6,09GB
Audio: Italian / DTS / 6ch / 48.0 KHz / 24 bits
Sub: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian

John Copley’s enduring production of one of the most famously melodious and popular of all operas is a classic of the Royal Opera repertory. With historically accurate designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman and an excellent cast headed by Hibla Gerzmava and Teodor Ilincai, this 2009 revival, in which conductor Andris Nelsons makes a distinguished Royal Opera House debut, does full justice to Puccini’s masterpiece. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.
