HMV pre-order up, 14.99 - clicky

Now wait for Amazon to price drop, for those who like to support the evil empire

Despite the love for it here, this film has very much fallen beneath my radar.

Can anyone expand on what it's like (other than 'good'), possibly saying what other films it's similar to?

Cheers.

Antonioni certainly marches to the beat of his own drum, so it's kind of difficult to compare it to other films. It's a slow film, but a beautiful one, one that is easy to find yourself absorbed in. Nicholson's performance is wonderful too. I think its a really remarkable and engrossing piece of work, but plenty of friends and colleagues disagree.

This trailer is pretty funny, but not particularly helpful (though in a sense it does serve as a reminder that it must be a pretty difficult film to market).

I think adam pretty much summed it up, i would say the same thing. It's not really similar to anything i can think of but if you go with it, it's a beautiful journey.

Have you seen anything else by Antonioni? If you have and you liked what you saw, you are bound to like this.

Some people have been spooked by the Spanish BD looking so terrible, but in no way does that reflect what Sony's master actually looks like. And Powerhouse's encoding policy, in line with pretty much everything that David Mackenzie works on, is to give the main feature maximum room to breathe while compressing the extras much more (especially modern talking-heads pieces shot against static backgrounds). Handily, in this particular case three of the major extras are commentaries so don't take up much additional disc space at all.

Why hasn't this release been reviewed yet anywhere?

According to Michael B:

Quote:
The disc was only signed off a week ago. It's bang on schedule to hit its release date, but the best case scenario with regard to review check discs is that they'll only just have been shipped (I'm not involved with this process), and as it takes about ten hours to get through the entire package I wouldn't expect any in-depth reviews just yet. For what it's worth, everyone on the Indicator team is VERY proud of this release, with Adrian Martin's new commentary being a particular highlight.
Hope that answers your question! Sounds like a very safe blind-buy from where I'm sitting.

First saw the film at University 27 years back (not home video & actual reel to reel). Bought the DVD many years later. Pre-ordered the Blu.Sticks with you.

Saucy buggers. You could say as much of a BD edition of Cabiria, of which the extant print materials date from 1914. (And I'd actually buy it.)

They always max out those old masters and they end up looking pretty good in motion.
