CULT EPICS Unleash two Tinto Brass Special Editions

Cult Epics have just released a splendid two disc collection dedicated to the iconic Italian cult director Tinto Brass.  This gorgeous release includes Brass' 1995 feature P.O. Box Tinto Brass and the award winning 2013 documentary on Brass' career, IsTintoBrass.  The set includes a beautiful large booklet chronicling Brass' six decade long career, a slip-case with alternate artwork, a reversible sleeve as well as numerous extras including interviews, galleries and trailers. 

P.O. Box Tinto Brass is amongst the controversial director's most unique feature length films.  Composed of a number of erotic vignettes hosted by the irrepressible Brass himself, P.O. Box Tinto Brass is amongst the most entertaining and lighthearted films.  Featuring a typically fantastic score by the much missed Riz Ortolani, P.O. Box Tinto Brass is presented completely uncut and the new 4K HD transfer looks terrific.  While it certainly isn't amongst Brass' great works, P.O. Box Tinto Brass remains an essential title in his filmography and fans should welcome this release with open arms.

Even better is director Massimiliano Zanin's incredibly well-done career spanning IsTintoBrass.  Making its stateside debut with a beautifil 2K transfer, this documentary is an idealstarting point for newbies interested in Brass and seasoned fans as well.  It's also an essential watch for European film fans in general.  Love him or hate him, the likes of Tinto Brass will not be seen again and IsTintoBrass does a terrific job of celebrating his work while putting him in proper historical and social perspective. 

Cult Epics have released a number of Tinto Brass titles in the past and this new collection is amongst their very best.  It's amongst the most essential archival releases of the year.
