I just got done watching Paul Verhoeven's Flesh + Blood for the first time ever on DVD. I've never seen, or even heard of this movie before it was mentioned here, and just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it. I was surprised at how much graphic nudity and violence there was in this movie. Anyway, I wanted to comment on the transfer. Although I give the anamorphic transfer a definite thumbs up, there were some really bothersome problems with the darker scenes and I just wanted to ask if anyone familiar with this movie thinks this is how the movie always was. Anyway, the detail is pretty good, edge enhancement is minimal (at least on my 32" 16x9 WEGA it is). The overall color is slightly muted, which seems to work well with the movie considering its gloomy time period (Middle Ages) and age of the film. However in very dark scenes, things are VERY yellow. People's eyes and their teeth are almost Crayon yellow. Surely this can't be how the cinematographer intended. Was this just how it was transferred to DVD, or has the film deteriorated over time, or is this really how its supposed to be? Other than that though, I was pleasantly surprised at the transfer. The Dolby 2.0 soundtrack isn't anything special, but its clear and not overly tinny. Bass response is only slightly noticable in many of the scenes action scenes. This is a very active movie and a complete 5.1 restoration would have been nice, but Im just happy I got to experience this uncut version of the film. I recommend the movie to anyone as it is a great story, and doesnt water down what was probably a very graphic and violent time period. Definite thumbs up!
