The UK-based film distribution company
has gone into administration, laying off it's entire staff.
With the help of their American arm (Tartan USA, the closure of which had already been announced at this years' Cannes Festival), they were responsible for bringing some of the best recent foreign cinema, especially from Japan and Korea to the West, including Infernal Affairs
(remade as The Departed
(currently being remade), A Tale of Two Sisters
and the original Ring
series, virtually single-handed launching the J-Horror
phenomenon. Other notable films they backed include Primer
, Red Road
(Pos NSFW, brief nudity) and Funny Games
