Curzon Artificial Eye offer one of the widest ranges of credible contemporary cinema from around the world, as well as world cinema classics and Director collections.

We’ve packed our stores with hundreds of their cinematic greats from just £3. Check out a handful of our favourites below with loads more available in-store now.


The 400 Blows

13-year-old Antoine (Jean-Pierre Léaud) can’t seem to do anything right. His dysfunctional parents yell at him, his spiteful schoolteacher picks on him and luck just never goes his way. Despite his efforts at patience, one day it all becomes too much and Antoine throws in the towel, choosing to take his chances on the Paris streets.

At times joyous and at others bitterly hard, his new life brings a newfound freedom – one that Antoine will follow up to its painful, poignant and beautiful conclusion. Francois Truffaut’s first feature film and arguably the starting point of the Nouvelle Vague, The 400 Blows is a true landmark in French cinema. Raw, honest, and intensely emotional, it captures youth in startlingly vivid detail and holds a mesmerising, unflinching mirror up to life itself.

Anomalisa

From the mind of Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) comes Anomalisa, a tender, touching and achingly funny black comedy – filmed entirely in breathtaking stop-motion animation.

Michael Stone, a husband, father and successful motivational speaker, is crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to a customer service convention in Cincinnati, he checks into his hotel and prepares to once more go through the motions. But this time a chance meeting with Lisa, an unassuming baked goods sales rep, throws the dullness into disarray and Michael feels he may have just met someone who can make a change…

Smart, humorously absurd and bracingly humane, Anomalisa is a technically stunning work of animation, beautifully orchestrated by co-director Duke Johnson and scored by Carter Burwell (Carol, In Bruges, Fargo). Drawing brilliant performances from David Thewlis, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tom Noonan, it sees Charlie Kaufman at his daring, dazzling best.

Enemy

Directed by Denis Villenueve (Prisoners) and starring Oscar-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Source Code), Enemy is a mesmerising psychological thriller based on the novel ‘The Double’ by Nobel laureate José Saramago.

Jake Gyllenhaal plays Adam, a university lecturer nearing the end of his relationship with girlfriend Mary (Mélanie Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down the actor and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle…

Dark, gripping and pulsating with atmosphere, Enemy is a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller that has drawn comparisons to both Lynch and Cronenberg.

The Great Beauty

Jep Gambardella, a 65-year-old journalist and once promising novelist, lives his easy life among Rome’s decadent high society in a swirl of rooftop parties and late-night soirees. But when he learns of the death of his friend’s wife – a woman he once loved as an 18-year-old – his life is thrown into perspective and he begins to see the world through new eyes.

Paolo Sorrentino’s (Il Divo, The Consequences of Love) deliriously entertaining film plays out like a modern La Dolce Vita. Sorrentino regular Toni Servillo – whose entrance in the film is nothing short of magnificent – plays the lead character, through whose world-weary eyes we witness the decadence of a bankrupt culture consuming itself. The result is a dazzling, sumptuously shot satire of life in Berlusconi’s Italy.

The Handmaiden

From visionary director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy and Stoker) comes The Handmaiden, a sumptuous and exhilarating period thriller inspired by Sarah Waters’ best-selling novel ‘Fingersmith’. Set during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the 1930s, a young handmaiden named Sookee (Kim Tae-ri) is hired by Hideko (Kim Min-hee), a reclusive heiress who lives in a sprawling mansion under the watchful eye of her domineering Uncle Kouzuki (Cho Jin-woong).

But Sookee harbours a secret: she has been recruited by Fujiwara (Ha Jung-woo), a scheming con artist posing as a Japanese Count, to trick Hideko into entrusting him with her fortune. However, when Sookee and Hideko begin to develop unexpected emotions for each other, they start putting together a plan of their own.

With breathtaking visuals, grandiose set design and frenzied humour, The Handmaiden is one of the year’s most anticipated films – an opulent and labyrinthine tale of deception, romance and triple-crossing that marks a career high for one of modern cinema’s most thrilling auteurs.

Ida

Pawel Pawlikowski’s critically acclaimed Ida is a moving and intimate drama about a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland who discovers a dark family secret dating back to the years of the Nazi occupation.

18-year-old Anna (stunning newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska), a sheltered orphan raised in a convent, is preparing to become a nun when the Mother Superior insists she first visit her sole living relative. Naiive, innocent Anna soon finds herself in the presence of her aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza), a worldly and cynical Communist Party insider who shocks her with the declaration that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation. This revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into the countryside, to the family house and into the secrets of the repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism.

With this beautifully directed Oscar winning drama, Pawlikowski returns to his native Poland for the first time in his career to confront some of the more contentious issues in the history of his birthplace. Powerfully written and eloquently shot, Ida a masterly evocation of a time, a dilemma, and a defining historical moment.

Jules Et Jim

From the time of their meeting in 1912, Jules and Jim share a close friendship. Shortly before the First World War, Jules marries Catherine (Jeanne Moreau), a wilful young woman the two men have befriended, but, after the war has ended, his relationship with her deteriorates rapidly.

When Jim comes to stay with the couple and their daughter, he begins a relationship of his own with Catherine, having been urged to do so by Jules, who hopes that if his wife is involved with his friend she will not leave him.

Leviathan

Set in the remote Russian northwest, Leviathan is the tragic tale of one man’s struggle against a corrupt system of power, brought to breathtaking life by visionary director Andrey Zvyagintsev (The Return, The Banishment, Elena). Kolya, a part-time mechanic, lives on a rocky shore with his wife and son in a house he built himself.

When a local mayor attempts to seize the property through a compulsory purchase order he calls in a lawyer friend from Moscow to help fight his case. But the wheels of justice soon prove to be slow, heavy and quite possibly deadly.

An astounding work of epic scope and savage emotion that was awarded Best Screenplay at Cannes 2014 and nominated for an Oscar in 2015, Leviathan is a visually arresting masterpiece that has drawn comparisons with Tarkovsky, shot through with the rich, novelistic complexity of Dostoyevsky.

Lost In France

In Glasgow in the mid-1990s, flourishing indie rock band The Delgados established cult record label Chemikal Underground, heralding a renaissance of independent music in the city that would bring the likes of Mogwai, Arab Strap and Franz Ferdinand to the world.

Lost in France, an exhilarating new documentary, explores the rise of this Glaswegian music scene, revisiting a defining, chaotic trip to France in the musicians’ early careers. Featuring a stunning mix of live performances and frequently hilarious interviews, the film reunites key label personnel in an intimate exploration of friendship, memory and making music.

Hosted by the Glasgow Film Festival, Lost in France screens as a special cinema event on 21 February followed by an exclusive performance broadcast live via satellite to cinemas across the UK and Ireland from the Glasgow O2 ABC, featuring a supergroup including Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), RM Hubbert plus The Delgados’ Emma Pollock and Paul Savage.

Mustang

Beautifully shot, with stunning performances by its young cast, the Oscar-nominated Mustang is both a rousing tale of spirited youth and a powerful, moving and timely work of engaging social cinema. It’s the beginning of summer.

In a small village in northern Turkey, Lale and her four sisters are on their way home from school, innocently playing with local boys. But prying village eyes view their games with suspicion and the girls’ behaviour – and refusal to repent – quickly causes a scandal among the family. Soon the sisters find themselves locked in their bedrooms, with sober dress enforced and their schoolwork replaced by cookery classes.

Their home now a prison, all the girls have to live for are arranged marriages and family honour. But together, driven by strength, courage and a desire for freedom, the five sisters fight back against the limits imposed on them and test their family ties to breaking point.

Tale Of Tales

Hailed as a masterpiece at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, Tale of Tales is a sumptuous, seductive and macabre re-telling of Giambattista Basile’s classic Italian fairy tales by renowned director Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Reality).

Comprising three wildly fantastical stories, including a queen who gives birth after eating a sea monster’s heart, an old peasant woman who finds youth after falling asleep in an enchanted forest and a proud king who raises a flea as his child, these are tales that your parents never dared tell you. Set in an epic landscape filled with a host of bizarre characters (played by a stunning ensemble cast of Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones and Stacy Martin), this outlandish, grotesque and beguiling fantasy world is like nothing you’ve seen before.

Gloriously shot, with a spine-tingling soundtrack by Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Rust & Bone), Tale of Tales is a lavish production from the makers of High-Rise and Sexy Beast. Deliciously dark, wickedly funny and outrageously entertaining, these adult-only fairy tales are a breathtaking work of cinematic escapism.

Victoria

Victoria, a young woman from Madrid, meets four local guys outside a nightclub. Sonne and his friends are real Berliners who promise to show her a good time and the real side of the city. But these boys have got themselves into hot water: they owe someone a dangerous favour that needs repaying that evening. As Victoria’s flirtation with Sonne begins developing into something more, he convinces her to come along for the ride.

As the night rolls on, what started out as a good time, quickly spirals out of control. As dawn approaches, Victoria and Sonne realise it’s all or nothing and they abandon themselves to a heart-stopping journey into the depths of the night.
