A wonderful new piece on Tsai Ming-Liang's film and the magic of cinema by James Balmont at Little White Lies.

"The visuals on display put the older SD DVD releases to shame...
the interview with Tsai is worth the price of admission alone. This Blu-ray is highly recommended."

Hopefully that means Zavvi will get it back in stock too soon and dispatch my copy.

This was a great disc to break in my new 65" TV. The colors really pop and the level of detail is fantastic. I still rank the film near the bottom of Tsai's features, but only because his others are so dear to me. This one doesn't get me as much on a gut level, but there is some really fantastic humor in it. Madam Butterfly is also better than I remembered it, wouldn't call it a favorite but it's an interesting thing to chew on. Good interview with Tsai.

Is there something going on with the production of this disc? It seems like it’s been available nowhere since release. Even my go-to for new import discs on eBay has yet to have this in stock. It’s quite unusual!

Hopefully that means they've sold a lot of copies. I'd love to see more Tsai from them. I received my copy directly from Second Run shortly after release. I'm happy to support them directly, even if it costs a little bit more. They also sent me a post card for Vitalina Varela.

This is my early pick for UK Blu-ray of the year. It's like watching the film for the first time.

There's plenty of stock, no manufacture issues.
It's also available at Amazon UK (at just £14.99 currently)

"The film manages to balance humorous and melancholy tones perfectly with a slow, steady pace that becomes hypnotic... The film's global Blu-ray premiere [...] from Second Run looks pretty spectacular; the many dark scenes that were impenetrable on previous editions are crystal clear here and feature saturated, beautiful colours..."

DiabolikDVD in the US just got this in for those in the states that can’t justify Amazon UK’s shipping rates. I happily ordered it and can’t wait to rewatch this.

Got my copy today and just watched it. Beautiful restoration and the film holds up well which was hardly a surprise as all as Tsai's film do. Also, I haven't test the film but the back of the case states ABC.
