Curzon Home Cinema launches new fortnightly curated strand

Curzon Home Cinema has launched a new fortnightly strand of curated films.
Called Curzon Curates, the VOD service will send its users collections of hand-picked flicks every other week for a fresh perspective on both classic and contemporary films.
“Curzon has been curating exceptional film experiences since 1934. Curzon Curates highlights the expert team’s programming vision and brings this directly to your home,” says a spokesperson for the site.
Every other Wednesday, two collections will introduce a mix of films – one for budding film enthusiasts and one for more seasoned cineastes.
The curated strands kick off this week with a special Cannes double-bill: one collection of previous Cannes award winners and one highlighting Cannes visionaries, celebrating the Palme d’Or and beyond.
Cannes 2016 is nearly over and one film will be awarded the Palme d’Or. To celebrate, Curzon Home Cinema has put together a selection of previous winners, from Iran to Italy, Thailand and more.
Visually dazzling, dramatic and sometimes wryly funny, the collection promises “world cinema that engages us emotionally”.
Here’s the line-up:
Blue Is the Warmest Colour
La Dolce Vita
Secrets & Lies
Taste of Cherry
Dancer in the Dark
The Son’s Room
4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
Visionaries of Cannes
The Palme d’Or is the most prestigious award for filmmakers at the Cannes Film Festival, second only to the Oscars for international acclaim. Visionaries of Cannes highlights a selection of other outstanding works by Golden Palm winners which are equally worthy.
Here’s the line-up:
The Silence of Lorna
The Seventh Continent
Like Someone in Love
The Straight Story
Beyond the Hills
The 10th Victim
