That's magnetic storage you're thinking of, not optical :)

(Although a box set that managed to zap all the competing discs on the shelf must be some sick Hollywood executive's dream!)

Luckily magnets have no effect on DVDs/Blu-rays. Storing the box next to your credit cards might not be a great idea though...

Don't worry--like you, the only thing I keep next to my DVDs is rolls of toilet paper.

Ha, this thing might actually be too nice. It looks sort of ridiculous mixed in with my other DVDs.
Well, the obvious solution is to help it blend in by purchasing another Limited Edition or two!

Svet says that the image is even greater than the Second Sight disc and gives it 0.5 score bump!

I think you meant to say 5.0 not 0.5 :wink:

Watched my copy last night, it has never looked this good. I don't have the UK BD, just their DVD so I can't make any side by side comparisons, it trumps the DVD by a lightyear though. Glad Mondo didn't give us a DVD first and then have us double-dip on the BD. For me this is hands down the best and most essential release of the year.

No, no, I meant that when Svet reviewed this transfer on the Second Sight disc he gave it a 4.5, and now he has given it an extra 0.5 for its Mondo Vision appearance. I point this out only because it helps me justify the half a century this thing cost me :-"

The new interview with the translator is interesting. I'd like to check out some of Zulawski's books.

I received my Blu-Ray of Possession a few days ago and watched it for the first time yesterday (thought it was excellent). For some reason, the disc is no longer working on my Blu-Ray player today. I simply get a "Cannot read disc" error message every time.

My player is a Panasonic DMP-BD80. My firmware is up to date, and I haven't really had any problems like this in the past. Any ideas?

Is there a way to figure out how many copies of POSSESSION are left?

Pull the plug for a while, play a different disc, try again. Maybe an exorcism.

Ironically, this actually seems to have worked (the playing a different disc part; I didn't perform an exorcism, at least not yet). Disc is playing okay now; let's hope it doesn't happen again.

Buy all of them and then count them?

I'm not sure if there's any other topic devoted to Andrzej Zulawski on this forum but I simply couldn't resist the temptation because this is a bomb:

"Cosmos by Witold Gombrowicz is in Pre-production and will be Zulawski's next film.

Synopsis: Cosmos is a metaphysical noir thriller narrated by Witold, a seedy, pathetic, and witty student, who is charming and appalling by turns. On his way to a relaxing vacation he meets the despondent Fuks. As they set off together for a family-run pension in the Carpathian Mountains they discover a dead bird hanging from a string. Is this a strange but meaningless occurrence or is it the beginning of a string of bizarre events? As the young men become embroiled in the Chekhovian travails of the family running the pension, Grombrowicz creates a gripping narrative where the reader questions who is sane and who is safe?"

!!!

Thanks, but it did work for me after simply turning off my player for some time and giving it another go. Not sure what'll happen in the future though...

In that case, it sounds more like a player issue than a bad disc.

Good news: Mondo Vision has secured the US rights to Boris Goudonov and will be releasing it on Blu-ray disc in 2015.

Will it have extras unlike (I think) the Gaumont?

So that would be the next release? I thought On the Silver Globe and The Blue Note were the next 2 up, going by the 'in production' status on the site.

Presumably Boris Goudonov has been brought forward because Gaumont have gone and done their own HD transfer for Mondo Vision to licence? Whereas the other films in the series have to be done from scratch?
