Salvador (1986) dir: Oliver Stone Blu Ray (Eureka!)

This harrowing account of the real-life experiences of photojournalist Richard Boyle (played by James Woods) will truly jolt the viewer out of their complacency about American foreign policy. It's a must-see film - albeit one which you might not wish to face going through a second time.

Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters (1985) Blu Ray (The Criterion Collection)

Paul Schrader's multi-stranded examination of one of Japan's most memorable and controversial cultural figures is a beautiful and hugely ambitious piece of cinema. This 4K restoration is stunning and features a wealth of extras which add up to an almost perfect package.
