We're delighted to be working with Sony Home Entertainment, to give away two bundles of newly released Blu-rays from The Criterion Collection's exceptional series of classic and contemporary cinema each month.

June's releases include:

Merrily We Go To Hell (1932) - Addiction, polyamory, and female sexual liberation: decades before such ideas were widely discussed. As the only female director working in 1930s Hollywood, Dorothy Arzner brings wit, frankness and extraordinary performances with this early feminist discussion on traditional marriages.

Flowers of Shanghai (1998) - From one of the leading figures in Taiwanese New Wave Cinema, Hou Hsiao-Hsein; Flowers of Shanghai evokes a vanished world of opulence, decadence and cruelty, composed in a procession of entrancing long takes. Highlights the tales of courtesans in the late 19th century who must buy their freedom through work in the 'flower houses'.

The Night of the Hunter (1955) - A horror movie with traits of a Grimm Fairly Tale, a quirky rendering of the battle between good and evil. An ethereal American classic, and the standalone directorial debut by Charles Laughton, starring Hollywood greats Robert Mitchum, and Shelley Winters.

For a chance to win June's new releases, answer the following question: 
What was the name of the 1995 Jim Jarmusch film that The Night of the Hunter star Robert Mitchum also appeared in?

Please email answers to by midnight on Wednesday 30 June 2021.
