| I'll buy "RAN" when the good members of this forum confirm its quality. I've been burned for trusting Fox-Lorber one too many times to ever preorder one of their titles. |
I hear ya, I mean, I know I don't have the street cred of alot of the fellas around here.
But I can personally attest that the more recent Fox Lorber/Wellspring/Winstar discs I have purchased I have been very happy with.
Namely Francois Ozon's Under the Sand
, wonderful anamorphic transfer and commentary by director Ozon.
And Godard's Breathless
which has a really nice transfer (much better than any VHS I saw as young movie lover watching classics on VHS...some titles are hideous). Winstar's disc of Breathless
was really pretty. I mean, it's 40 years old for gosh sakes and it's not like Criterion's doing their normal 2 year restoration process.
All those factors considered, they've really done alot better job lately on their titles. And with selling some Truffaut's & Fassbinder's to Criterion (some of which Criterion once owned)... their getting even rosier in my eyes.
I can understand being hesitant. I just had to share my enthusiasm for this one though, this is a biggie in my book. Some folks have their eventual Star Wars
announcement, and I have my Ran
