Released on March 31st, Richard Kelly's Southland Tales is a very interesting, cool, cult curio, and if you haven't managed to pick yourself up a copy yet, we have three copies of the DVD to giveaway here on eatmybrains, courtesy of Universal.
Although a bit of a sprawling mess, Southland Tales is actually a shining gem of independent cinematic vision and will not disappoint any fans of Donnie Darko. Richard Kelly returns to his favourite themes of the oncoming apocalypse, time loops and split personalities, whilst adding in a large dash of comedy, sci-fi, action and musical numbers (Timberlake's miming to The Killers is a killer scene!)
To stand a chance of winning a copy, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the words SOUTHLAND TALES in the subject line. Please also include your name and address in the email.
The competition will close on April 12th, and we will publish the winner's names on the site the following day. Unfortunately, we can only accept entries from people aged 15 or over who live in the UK or Ireland.
