Editorial Reviews

THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY Entrepreneurial mob boss Harold Shand (Academy Award-nominee, Bob Hoskins, Mona Lisa) runs an underworld empire but his dreams are much bigger. He and his sophisticated wife (Oscar-winner, Helen Mirren, The Queen) aspire to partner with American mobsters to turn the barren docklands of London into a development for the upcoming Olympics. But their perfect plan begins to unravel when a string of deadly bombings leads Shand to the stunning realization that he is being targeted by the IRA. A bloody race to hold on to his crumbling schemes brings him to an explosive climax in this taut, riveting thriller. (1980, 113 min.).

MONA LISA An ex-convict, thug and a high-class call girl make for an unlikely and dangerous couple in Academy Award-winner Neil Jordan’s (The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire) tale of frustrated love on the cruel streets of London’s underworld. Bob Hoskins (Hollywoodland, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) stars in his breakout performance, for which he landed an Oscar nomination and a host of other major awards as George, a working class hood whose growing obsession with the exotic and cunning Simone (Cathy Tyson, The Serpent and the Rainbow) will lead him down a dark and bloody path. The magnificent supporting cast includes Robbie Coltrane (the Harry Potter series), Sammi Davis (Hope and Glory) and two-time Academy Award-winner Michael Caine (The Dark Knight). (1986, 104 min).

RAGGEDY RAWNEY The bonds of family and the power of love are pitted against the chaos of war in this lyrically evocative drama directed and co-written by its star, Golden Globe winner Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Mona Lisa). Shell-shocked by his first experience of battle, a young army recruit (Dexter Fletcher) goes AWOL. Disguising himself as a female, he’s taken in by a band of gypsies who believe the boy is a deranged magic-woman and mystical seer known as a “rawney.” But when the boy falls for the gypsy leader’s beautiful daughter, it threatens to bring the horrors of war crashing down on the entire clan. (1988, 103 min).

THE LONELY PASSION OF JUDITH HEARNE Two-time Academy Award® winner Maggie Smith (The Harry Potter films, Gosford Park) delivers a stunning performance in this richly emotional tale of desperate longings, secret vices, and the power of romantic illusions. Painfully shy, unmarried but ever-hopeful, Judith Hearne (Smith) is immediately smitten by her new boarding house acquaintance, James Madden (Oscar® nominee Bob Hoskins, Who Framed Roger Rabbit). But is James in love with Judith… or attracted only by the money she can bring to his latest get-rich-quick scheme? A brilliantly acted, unforgettable dramatic tour de force from Oscar® nominated director Jack Clayton (Room at the Top). (1987, 116 min)

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movies, trashy packaging August 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
The low rating is for the Image product, not for the excellent movies.

For several years Image Entertainment has had the right to distribute Handmade Films library on DVD and Blu-Ray, and in my experience they have consistently botched the job.

In this case the four movies are all on one post in the case with nothing separating them. This can be characteristic of multi-DVD products sold for a buck or two at a dollar store or Walmart, but it should not be the case for a collection of quality movies. If the management of Image Entertainment were capable of shame, they should have experienced it when choosing to deliver a product like this.

Image now markets Blu-Ray versions of Mona Lisa and The Long Good Friday. They have the worst video quality of any Blu-Rays I've ever seen, with wicked digital compression artifacts.

These movies deserve better treatment than Image gives them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection July 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
This collection has two pluses. One, two movies herein are two classics: Mona Lisa and The Long Good Friday. Two, the other movies: The Raggedy Rawney and The Lonely Passion Of Judith Hearne had not been released on DVD. The Raggedy Rawney and The Lonely Passion Of Judith Hearne were the only two Bob Hoskins movies I had not seen. I truly enjoyed them both. If you are a fan of good drama and a fan of Bob Hoskins, this collection is a must-own.

It seems that from early on Bob made his characters his own, this is a great addition to my CD library.
