Default Laurin (1989) - Bildstörung 01 December 2017



Has anybody picked this up who can report on the quality? I have the old EMS DVD which (while serviceable) leaves much to be desired. Any opinions or reviews of the Blu-ray would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Quality is exceptional. Bildstörung are doing in Germany, what Criterion do in the US. This Blu-ray release is highly recommended.

That wonderful cover art caught my eye on Diabolik, so I decided to go for the blind buy, along with the recent German disc of Roots of Evil (hoping this will be a quality transfer - can anyone recommend it?) and Bildstorung's Singapore Sling. All three will be first-time viewings for me, so am looking forward to three slices of unique international cinema.


Edit: The IMDB keywords for Singapore Sling say it all (and perhaps too much!):

I'm almost afraid to click on 'See All (71)'!

Singapore Sling is completely demented. Picked up Synapse Films' solid DVD edition about a decade ago upon release.

Laurin is such a gorgeous film, but I've never seen a real quality portrayal of it. Can't wait till this release arrives from Diabolik.

My Top Ten of 2016: 1. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Ultimate Edition) 2. The Handmaiden 3. Arrival 4. Elle 5. A Cure for Wellness 6. Personal Shopper 7. The Nice Guys 8. Everybody Wants Some!! 9. The Wailing 10. The BFG

This one will do. It's a director approved 2K scan with color correction and grain kept intact.

ROE comes from Subkultur Entertainment, who did the great "Bloody Friday" Disc, so P/AQ should be top-notch:

In reference to the Bloody Friday disc, not this one (for clarification's sake): The only big downside is the English subs are absolutely riddled with errors and a genuine mess. It ruins an otherwise incredible release and personally why I haven't ordered anything from the label since. I used to be a big fan myself.

I blind bought this and it's turned out to be one of the best blind buys I've ever made. What an atmospheric treat with nods to Suspiria and Bava-esque visuals. A hidden gem!
