    New release - A Useful Life

     A Useful Life, Dogwoof's love story between man and cinema, is now available for you to own on DVD - order your copy today.

    Jorge (45) lives with his parents and has been working at a Film Archive for 25 years. He is a film programmer, he makes technical support, and he conducts the film news show at a radio station in Montevideo. Without any other job experience than working at the Film Archive, Jorge loses his position. A Useful Life explores the way Jorge changes his way of living in order to adapt to the new world that appears to him. After all, maybe ‘movies’ will help him survive.

    As Mark Kermode notes in his DVD review from this week's Observer, projectionists in the UK are dwindling so don't forget to read our blog on the end of the cinema projectionist here.

    If you are still not sure whether A Useful Life is up your alley then have a gander through some of these great reviews

    Sight and Sound - 'Exhilaratingly idiosyncratic, Veiroj’s film is ultimately an ode to the blind faith in the transformative power of film.'

    Empire Magazine - 'A paean to cinephilia'

    Little White Lies - 'Forged in an ultra-dry, Jarmuschian mould, Veiroj’s film is gorgeously bittersweet.'

    The Observer - 'A delightful hors d'oeuvre'
