Format: Blu-ray
One of my favourite films ever, I never thought this would appear on a decent DVD in the UK, let alone on Blu-ray. What a surprise when I saw the 13 May 2013 release date. Even better I received it a few days before that date.

After a quite long delay for the disc to get to the menu, I could not believe my eyes when I saw how good even the menu looked. The film itself in 1080p looks absolutely stunning. Either a well preserved print or some restoration has taken place. If you told someone it was a secretly released criterion Blu-ray, they would believe you, (viewed from around 12' away on a 65" plasma).
The sound is perfect in pcm stereo, exactly how it should be, nothing too fancy. The great music comes across well.

The only downside (for some) will be no subtitles or any new extra features. Well, subtitles should have been included for those hard of hearing, but extra features? films like this stand on their own and in some ways I feel are better without any at all. The same way some of the best singers/bands are totally uninteresting to listen to (until they perform).

If you have never seen this film I urge you to give it a try, forget the special effects laden blockbusters, this is proper independent film making, with a wonderful multi national cast.

I look forward soon to (hopefully) releases of other films of the era like Atom Egoyan's The Adjuster.

Format: DVD
At first I didn't really know how to take this film and was unsure what it was tying to be. Before too long I realised it was a good old 'film noir' with some off the wall characters, great dialogue and enough plot to keep me interested to the end.

The plot skirts around corrupt corporate activity that threatens to bring down a mystery business Mogul if discovered. Sprinkled in are sub-plots about the main characters, who all become involved in some way or another with the bad guys. Our characters all carry sizeable emotional baggage too; a Stunning French ex-porn actress desperate for revenge, an unshaven hack-lawyer hunted by the corporates he betrayed, an ex-nun virgin-nymphomaniac desperate to find the right man and an amnesiac

Gradually discovering his unsavoury past after waking 2 stories lower than he last remembered, on a bed of cobbles, broken glass and blood.

The storyline kept my interest right up until the end of the film, with a top secret floppy disk, torture by electric shock, shootings, chase in Grand Central Station (I think) and a head honcho only ever heard on the telephone, by which time I found myself genuinely interested in what happened to the characters and itching to find out just what the amnesiac had done in his past and how much he would or wouldn't change once he realised.

As with directors like the Coen Brothers the lives, quirks and personalities of the characters make up a big part of the film. Part of its charm - and the reason blockbuster lovers will hate it - is that the film uses this to tell the story rather than spelling out exactly what's going on with plot related

dialogue in an A-B-C fashion.

This is great piece of independent filmaking. I've been trying for ages to get it on DVD and so pleased to have now done so.

Format: VHS Tape
One of the best Hal Hartley films. It is so funny and the dialogue is sharp and stark. Favourite bit:
- Will you sleep with me? I am a nymphomaniac.
- How many men have you slept with?
- None.
- How can you be a nymphomaniac if you have not slept with anyone?
- I am choosy.
