New Release: Shopping Blu-ray and DVD

Shopping, the 1995 crime thriller that marked the movie debut of both actor Jude Law (Repo Men) and director Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil: Afterlife), was released by Severin Films on DVD and Blu-ray in its full-length, uncut version for the first time on Feb. 8, 2011.

Fast-moving, violent and anarchic, Shopping revolves around a group of disenchanted teens led by joy-riding car thief Law and his girlfriend (Sadie Frost, The Heavy) who practice “ram-raiding,” the dangerously illegal practice of using stolen cars to plow into store­fronts and then steal every­thing possible before the author­i­ties arrive. One scene, in particular, details how to steal an alarmed car in 60 sec­onds or less.

The British movie, which has long been considered a minor cult favorite in the U.S., was originally released with a running time of 87 minutes, and that’s the version that was issued to the U.S. DVD market by New Concorde back in 2001.

Severin’s edition of Shopping clocks in at 105 minutes and represents the film that Anderson originally envisioned.

Newly produced bonus features on the Blu-ray and DVD include the following:

  • director’s commentary
  • and amaking-of featurette including vintage on-set interviews.

The Shopping Blu-ray and DVD editions carry the list prices of $24.98 and $19.98, respectively.
