Lanterna Magicka/Comrades DVD

Bill Douglas's long-lost 1987 masterpiece, Comrades, is finally released on DVD and Blu-Ray next week. We have seen the disc, and it is a very fine thing indeed. Superb transfer, and some great extras in addition to our own film, Lanterna Magicka: Bill Douglas & the Secret History of Cinema, about which DVD Beaver have said:

"Supplements are found on a second Blu-ray disc with featurettes in HD (except one). The highlight being a 2009 documentary by Sean Martin & Louise Milne on Douglas' life and work - running approximately 1 hour - and entitled Lanterna Magicka - Bill Douglas & the Secret History of Cinema. This is pretty much golden for fans of Douglas and a fabulous inclusion - it's not to be missed."
