Thread: Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders

  1. #11
    Great film. I put on the Blu the other month intending to check out a few minutes and get sucked in and watched the whole thing again. Criterion's release is inexplicably too blue in tint, but it's miles ahead of the previous DVD releases. A surreal and mesmerizing film. Surely this must have been an influence on LEMORA and maybe ALABAMA'S GHOST.

    I agree. I liked everything about the Criterion release, except the colors.

    Having watched the Second run Blu-ray, its immediately noticeable that the transfers are different. Initially I was disappointed. The Second run has more noticeable print damage, which gets better as the film progresses. I also think that Criterions looks sharper. However perhaps the Organic look of Second runs blu is a more natural way to view the film. I agree with dvdbeaver in the sense that in no way does it detract from the enjoyment, it does take a little getting used to though.
