What my PS3 and HD TV were waiting for...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Suspiria (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
...a real chance to show just how impressive blu-ray can be.
I have numerous copies of Suspiria, from the first X-certificate ex-rental VHS through to the Anchor Bay DVD. I have watched the film more times than I care to remember. I thought I knew the film inside-out.
On my first viewing of this blu-ray release, however, I found myself thinking "never noticed that before" over and over again. The effect of most DVD to blu-ray comparisons is noticing the accentuated lines, textures and colours. This blu-ray made me notice things like subtle expressions on faces that, knowing Dario, must have been carefully directed but were easily missed on other formats. The most startling example for me is the expression on the face of Madame Blanc's nephew during Suzy's first encounter with witchcraft as she follows the other dancers to the Red Room. I love that scene, but never noticed that during the "blast" of light, a slight grin spreads across his face that then fades as the light fades. Perfectly timed - and incredibly creepy!
Let's have the same again for Profondo Rosso!

That is the exact scene that I thought of when I saw that this was now on UK BluRay...(the kid who smiles in the light and then frowns as the light diminishes).
Creepy and not visible...until NOW!
BluRay is the first big step towards film-like clarity for "Home Systems".
I said "towards"...
We're still not there, yet!
