Awful Blu Ray transfer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ugetsu Monogatari [Masters of Cinema] (Dual Format Edition) [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
The film itself is one of cinema's supreme masterpeices. But this Blu Ray transfer by Eureka is awful. There is no attempt at any kind of film restoration prior to tranferring to high definition. There are damaged lines and marks throughout. I guess HD makes this more apparent. All the more reason, if you are going to put it on Blu-Ray to make it worth our money, and not just ransfer your exisiting DVD print onto it. I had, so far, had the highest opinion for Eureka- one of the best DVD companies in the world. This is therefore a real disappointment! Dont waste your money on this as I did. Stick with the DVD version- especially if you can get hold of the version put out by Criterion in US. That has a very clean print, good dvd supplements and the whole thing is presented in a classy slipcased paper box.
