Paul Bartel's over the top, cult hit, Eating Raoul is making its Blu-ray debut via Criterion, and the results of their work are splendid.

Scanned in 2k, from the camera original, the image is perfect. Keep in mind that this is a very low budget film, but within that arena it looks precisely as it should.

Color, density, shadow detail, grain, all fall at the correct levels. Audio, in its original monaural format, has been derived from the original mag tracks.

Not for all tastes. But if you know what you're getting into, an overall pleasurable, and differently odd, experience.

Image - 5

Audio - 5

Recommended.

Very much looking forward to this one, as I've always been a fan of Bartel as an actor, but haven't yet experienced one of his films...

Got this one during the recent half-price Criterion sale, and it's good to hear the transfer is great. I haven't seen this one since it was first released on video, so a new high-definition Criterion transfer will probably be like watching it anew.

I was thrilled with how wonderful this looked and sounded after the fairly awful releases on previous formats.
