A late surge of great releases all but bring 2013 in home video to a close. Keep an eye out next week for our annual round-up of the highlights of the year. 

71Z5TziAp2L._SL1024_The Long Goodbye. A late contender for the title of best of the year from Arrow’s Academy imprint. We wrote extensively on the film itself last week, with the disc itself a class act worthy of holding such a remarkable picture. Extensive extra material offers a great insight in to the film. We can’t recommend this highly enough.

61GcfIMGvAL._SL1024_Cinema Paradiso. A second release from the Arrow Academy line, with a worthy edition of Giuseppe Tornatore’s lovelorn ode to the movies. The positioning of the title as worthy Christmas viewing is a nice touch (tying in with a limited theatrical run too).

Big Trouble In Little China. We’re steelbook sceptics here at Hope Lies at 24 Frames Per Second, however, the one holding Arrow Video’s new Big Trouble In Little China is a masterpiece in itself. The most definitive edition of the film to date, this is a great package.

Child’s Pose. Calin Peter Netzer’s film won the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.

Shotgun Stories. 2013 has been a great year for Jeff Nichols, with his Mud being his greatest success to date. Revisit the director’s early days with this timely reissue of his debut, which has otherwise been out of print for some time.
