Проект Леонида Парфенова «Российская Империя», посвященный 300-летию основания Империи и Санкт-Петербурга – это сегодняшний взгляд на трехсотлетнюю историю Российского государства. «Российская Империя» – это многонедельные съемки в столицах и десятки поездок по бывшей и настоящей территории страны. Это уникальные места, где никогда прежде не бывала телекамера: от польской деревни на пути Петра Великого до крыши Эрмитажа. Это все немецкие городки, из которых вышли русские императрицы. Места боевой славы русской армии – от Рима до Бейрута – и места национальных катастроф – от Севастополя до Восточной Пруссии. Исторические анекдоты и подлинные дневники, неизвестные документы и письма первых людей Империи. «Российская Империя» – это рассказ с пристрастием, телеисследование русской имперской идеи, которая и для ее сторонников, и для ее противников жива и поныне.

Oshima Nagisa’s The History of the Post Tokyo War / The Man Who Left His Will On Film is a Mobius loop of a film played over revolutionary youth, disillusioned with the fractured student movement of the late 60s in Japan. In what many consider Oshima’s most challenging film, the director toys with ideas of authorship, memory, and identity, and uses these to examine the concept of a film within a film….

A Film by James Bidgood
DVD5 | VIDEO_TS | PAL 4:3 | 01:04:42 | 4,07 Gb
Audio: English AC 2.0 @ 192 Kbps | Subs: English SDH
Genre: Art-house

Considered lost for many years, Pink Narcissus is an astounding discovery - an unwavering celebration of the male body within a fantasy world of epic indulgence. This is a breathtaking and outrageous erotic poem focussing on the daydreams of a beautiful boy prostitute who, from the seclusion of his ultra-kitsch apartment, conceives a series of interlinked narcissistic fantasies populated by matadors, dancing boys, slaves and leather-clad bikers. The film was shrouded in mystery following its 1971 release, its creator credited only as 'Anonymous', before being rediscovered and revealed as the work of artist and photographer James Bidgood. Its cult status endures as does adoration for its star, the gorgeous and enigmatic Bobby Kendall. With its highly charged hallucinogenic quality, its atmosphere of lush decadence, and its explicit erotic power, Pink Narcissus is a landmark of gay cinema.

It is the early 60s in France. The remaining survivors of the aborted French Foreign Legion have made repeated attempts to kill DeGaulle. The result is that he is the most closely guarded man in the world. As a desperate act, they hire The Jackal, the code name for a hired killer who agrees to kill French President De Gaulle for half a million dollars. We watch his preparations which are so thorough we wonder how he could possibly fail even as we watch the French police attempt to pick up his trail. The situation is historically accurate. There were many such attempts and the film closely follows the plot of the book.
