Yes mate, I believe they are identical. Arrow and Criterion (presumably partly from a cost point of view) appear to be on a good streak when it comes to providing the same discs on both sides of the pond.Thanks Cas. Yes, it can be a bot of a slog to get through. Is the UK Arrow disc the same in terms of quality and supplements as the US Arrow release? Thank you.
It'll be interesting to see whether this happens but it feels more likely that they will continue their Waterworld trend, i.e. license the title cheaply to release an extras-packed 4K-remastered limited edition set and get one last pinch of money out of customers, before the bigger company release the actual 4K disc, no doubt bare bones so they can start the cycle again. I wonder whether Arrow's Oldboy set will follow suit.I havent gotten around to seeing it yet,but this reminds me of the first act of Noe's "Irreversible" and the lesser known,but critically acclaimed "Stranger by the Lake",which is in my huge backlog of titles.
BTW,will Arrow start releasing UHD discs next year;its overdue and they already have 4k scans,so why not?
Haven't seen this film and not interested BUT I wanted to chip in and second the above statement.Thanks for the review, Cas.
I've always liked this film, as it's different. But will conceed it has it's issues.
One thing though, Arrow didn't release Sorcerer, only To Live And Die in L.A.
Sorcerer to me, is Friedkin's best film. I love it.
Yes, utterly obliterated at the BO by opening at the same time as Star Wars, Sorcerer is stunning.Haven't seen this film and not interested BUT I wanted to chip in and second the above statement.
Sorcerer is a great film and absolutely worth watching
