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.

March's releases include: 

Defending Your Life (1991) - Is there love after death? Acerbic everyman Albert Brooks (also in Lost in America) finds a perfect balance between satirical bite and romantic comedy charm as the writer, director, and star of this wonderfully warm and imaginative existential fantasy. A rare feat of personal, philosophical filmmaking that happens to also be divinely entertaining.

Kagemusha (1980) - When a warlord dies, a peasant thief is called upon to impersonate him, and then finds himself haunted by his spirit as well as his own ambitions. Akira Kurosawa creates a historical epic that is also a meditation on the nature of power.

Lost in America (1985) - L.A couple (Brooks & Hagerty) decide to quit their jobs, buy a Winnebago, and follow their Easy Rider fantasies of freedom and the open road. When a stop in Las Vegas nearly derails their plans, they’re forced to come to terms with their own limitations and those of the American dream. 

For a chance to win March's new releases, answer the following question: In which 2011 film directed by Nicolas Winding Refn did Lost in America's director Albert Brooks star?
