Closed: Win Bronson on DVD

Bronson.jpgFilmstalker has been given three copies of Bronson on DVD to giveaway, and that's to giveaway for free. All you have to do is answer a simple question, and simple it certainly is.

Bronson is the controversial film that was receiving great reviews when it was on general release and has now just been released on DVD. It tells the story of Mickey Peterson who became known as Charles Bronson, the most dangerous prisoner in Britain.

Here's the official write up for Brosnan:

Bronson, the most controversial film of 2009, is being released on DVD July 6th. The film was released to rave reviews calling it Clockwork Orange for the 21st century and proclaiming Tom Hardy’s performance as a Tour De Force. The DVD includes the exclusive speech made by the real Charles Bronson that was played at the premiere of the film.

In 1974, a hot-headed 19 year old named Michael Peterson decided he wanted to make a name for himself and so, with a homemade sawn-off shotgun and a head full of dreams he attempted to rob a post office. Swiftly apprehended and originally sentenced to 7 years in jail, Peterson has subsequently been behind bars for 34 years, 30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement.

With an intelligent, provocative and stylized approach, Bronson (based on a true story) follows the metamorphosis of Mickey Peterson into Britain’s most dangerous prisoner, Charles Bronson.

The DVD is presented in 1.85:1 with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio and carries the following additional features:

Exclusive Monologues From the Real Charles Bronson : Words From Inside Prison Making Bronson: The Making of the Film Tom Hardy’s Workout Stills Gallery Director’s Commentary Trailer / Teasers / TV Spots Valhalla Rising Promo

That's a good few extras there and it seems like a good presentation on the DVD, particularly with the director's commentary and the introduction from Charles Bronson himself, direct from prison.

Here's a reminder of the trailer just to show what a feast you'd be in for:
