Must buy and a blind buy for me. Shame its Criterion which means a high price and no 4K though.

Is this the first criterion with an atmos soundtrack? If so then they seem to be ever so slowly crawling towards a 4k release 😂

Nope, Roma has one, as does Parasite (US release the month before this).

I was very hyped to watch this on Netflix at the time it was released and I wanted to love it, but I thought it was only good, but not great. Certainly not up to Goodfellas or Casino standard (in my opinion). That said, I am contemplating buying this disc for a revisit although it is pretty expensive for a blu ray and a film I could watch again on Netflix.

so ... while Criterion are not adopting the 4k disc format, they are adopting 4k prices.
it's a pass from me.
i might pick up if it ever goes cheap - or used.
put it on 4k, i'll buy it for 24.99 (or maybe more).

It seems so doesn't it? And when you look at some of the 4K prices over in the US right now... :eek:

Love the film but £25.99 now on Amazon and Zoom, sold out on Zavvi :eek:

Think I'll stick to Netflix till I get one on sale somewhere.
