WHEN THE WIND BLOWS (1986) WITH JIMMY MURAKAMI: NON-ALIEN (2010) (SPECIAL PROMOTION!) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Sir John Mills, Dame Peggy Ashcroft
Directed By:  Jimmy T. Murakami
Composed By:  Various, Roger Waters

“A most unlikely entertainment…an animated film about the end of civilization…Not since Beyond the Fringe has the English reputation for stoicism been so effectively sent up, and possibly never has it been sent up with such brutally funny seriousness.”
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“Comedy and horror intertwine in this domestic, kitchen-sink version of Dr. Strangelove, and our involvement in the two characters keeps us helplessly glued to the screen.”
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

When the Wind Blows (1986)—writer Raymond Briggs’ adaptation of his own graphic novel, brought to the screen by director Jimmy T. Murakami—is an enchantingly collage-like animated film (featuring drawn, stop-motion, and live-action sequences) on a very grim subject, indeed: the effects of nuclear holocaust on an ordinary English couple. James and Hilda Bloggs (perfectly voiced by acting legends John Mills and Peggy Ashcroft) are a happy, near-elderly pair living in the lovely rural countryside when—seemingly out of nowhere—disaster beyond all imagining strikes. Featuring a score by Roger Waters (late of Pink Floyd), with a title song from David Bowie and contributions from Genesis, Squeeze, and Paul Hardcastle.

ALSO INCLUDING:
A documentary from Sé Merry Doyle, Jimmy Murakami: Non-Alien (2010).
