United Kingdom Tabu (Miguel Gomes)

Tabu Blu-ray REVIEW



This is an extraordinary film!

Anyone with even a tiny bit of interest in European/World Cinema should run to order a copy. It is everything I love about cinema

And a great looking Blu-ray from New Wave Films.

I've been really looking forward to seeing this film. It would be nice to see it get a US release, but even if that comes to pass it will more than likely be more expensive than importing this one - and would probably have a lesser supplemental package to boot.

This is going into the Amazon UK basket for a potential future order.

Very interesting looking film, thanks Pro-B for leading me to this film from the Criterion thread, otherwise I never would have found this, shall I say gem? A blind buy has never failed me yet!

Again thanks!!!

I used them last week to order Tabu BD and Mysteries of Lisbon DVD. They're prompt - ordered Weds night, got it Sat morning with the snow. They use worldpay merchants, so they probably charge for pre-orders.

Although I've got most of the Blu-rays, there are a couple I want, so I will take advantage of this offer. I might also see which of the DVDs I'm after

I plan to watch Tabu this weekend, so can't wait

You are very welcome, Preacher.

I just really, really liked this film. It has the right tempo for my taste (slow) and I thought that it was beautifully done (the concept is great and the acting wonderful). I hope that you and everyone else enjoy it as much as I did.

Watched the first 15 minutes online, decided that for 9.10 this was an easy "turn off streaming and buy" kind of film.

Cheers charnier.

Thank you for this.

I ordered Tabu, Nostalgia for the Light, Le Quattro Volte, Elena, and Uncle Boonme....all for 40 what a bargain!
Already have Anatolia and How I ended this summer and am blind-buying the above based on my love for these two films

Tabu is remarkable, it was my #2 film of 2012, and the Blu-ray is lovely. Thanks for the heads up on the Vivaverve offer btw, may use it to fill some gaps.

Once again, a pleasure guys - and I figure that this is probably the closest way to buying from the label: VivaVerve is Verve Pictures's shop and Drakes Avenue is a subsidiary of Verve. If it's only selling Drakes Avenue and New Wave titles, then it suggests New Wave Films is affiliated in some way.

Gomes is definitely a director to watch out for - I really liked his Our beloved month of August which was put out by Second Run/Cinema Guild (DVD only).

I might also spring for Nostalgia for the Light BD and Hadjewich next week.

Caught this film on Filmfour late at night, i didn't plan on watching it hours before, just found it on the guide an hour before it started. Staying up to see it was the best decision i did!

If it wasn't for my curiosity, i wouldn't have bothered in the slightest.

Can anyone confirm if this blu-ray has the same logo on the spine as the other new media? Thanks
