Beautiful BFI transfer of Antonioni's best film!,
This review is from: Red Desert (Il deserto rosso) [DVD]  (DVD)
This is the DVD to purchase for fans of Antonioni's Red Desert. The transfer is exquisite with a remarkably sharp image with superb color -- all on just the standard definition DVD BFI release! So those interested in the Blu-Ray DVD BFI release need not worry about this particular digital transfer. Aside from a few short vertical streaks and a few warped image flutterings ( due to sprocket damage ) this edition is perfect. This BFI DVD also has an excellent commentary track by David Forgacs and a wonderful booklet with several fascinating essays on Red Desert. To put it simply: this DVD is a must buy. Be seeing you!
