I saw this at the cinema earlier this year and remember thinking that it would probably look less than stellar on Blu Ray, as it was very grainy. As such I imagine this is a pretty faithful transfer of the source materials. Great film by the way -the couple I went to see it with walked out during the last 20 mins!

Yeah, I think you're right, I saw it at the London Film Festival and I thought I recalled it being a bit rough-looking. Just ordered my copy, even if the transfer is genuinely problematic there's unlikely to be a superior import version at a reasonable price.

For anyone wondering if this is going to be a bit "heavy" for them, I think it's worth stressing that although the film is indeed disturbing, violent, and ultimately very bleak, it's also very funny at times, especially early on.

What's with the weird horizontal lines on the image though? It's like stripes that are present throughout, more visible in dark scenes, and there's a brightness flickering effect like once a second too, I've not really come across something like this before.

The film: 4.5/5
