Take a Girl Like You (1970) Blu Ray (Indicator)

This rarely funny romantic comedy displays attitudes which seem hopelessly dated when seen in this #MeToo generation. Hayley Mills and Oliver Reed give better performances than the material deserves. Also starring Noel Harrison, John Bird, Sheila Hancock and Penelope Keith.

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.
