I've not only seen it on TCM, but at The Film Forum in NYC in 2011. Fantastic film. Well worth adding to your Criterion Collection.

Anyone know why Amazon's price for this is over 30 bucks, when Badlands is just over 25? I know it's only like a 5 dollar difference, but usually they only charge this much for two-disc sets. I was looking forward to getting this one, but with so much other stuff coming out on the same day, somethings gotta give with that price...

Default Can we argue about pricing?

Just don't see the need for questioning the prices of the Criterion releases. We must realize these films are licensed from bigger studios (which I am sure they make Criterion pay a price). Plus with these awesome 4K and 2K restorations, I would pay a pretty penny to get these blu rays. Now if only Criterion was able to re-release The Third Man on blu ray!

Does anyone here NOT love this film?

I've heard a lot of great things about it.

Thinking about blind buying it next week.

I should start by saying that I'm not a big fan of Technicolor.

I just don't like the look of it.

The Red Shoes is the only P&P film I've seen.

It's pretty good, but didn't love it.

...just generally dislike the look of Technicolor from that era.
Looking to trade like new copy of A Brighter Summer Day for one of the following:
-Gilda
-Carnival of Souls
-The Friends of Eddie Coyle
-The Emigrants/The New Land
-The Red Shoes

Well I absolutely adore The Red Shoes, Blimp I thought was good but a one time watch for me personally.

Why do you think you liked The Red Shoes more?

Liked the story more, the interactions and chemistry between characters, thought it was beautiful to look at. Matter of opinion of course, one could easily prefer Blimp. The best part of Blimp to me was the love angle played out but I must say the film had an interesting idea through working its way backwards to an extent.

Of the three P&P BDs Criterion has released, Blimp is my least favorite. It's not a bad film at all, but I think The Red Shoes and Black Narcissus are just better and more entrancing. I guess ballerinas and crazy nuns just speak to me more.

I know what you mean.

...I've always had a thing for crazy nuns.

Blimp was one of my first Criterion Blu-rays and I think it's a terrific film. May not be for everyone but I certainly have enjoyed it a few times.

The color is beautiful in this Technicolor film, and it has a very touching story. This is definitely one of my most favorite P&P films.
