Blu-ray version reviewed HERE.

Firstly, no one will do this film any better on DVD (since subsidiary company Criterion passed). It is about par, and maybe a notch ahead, of typical Home Vision releases - better than 'Bloody Territories'. Good color, great contrast, excellent 16X9 friendly subtitles, modest extras. This DVD will introduce this 'sub-genre'  of film to so many people who otherwise would never have even known it existed. Pick this up and show your friends something different next time you get together. I loved it!  out of
