It doesn't seem to exist (yet). It isn't mentioned on Maalof's website and it isn't on, two websites where you would definitly find it when/if it gets a proper release.
Yeah, I looked on before I gave up and bought the download. All his other stuff seems to be out on disc. I wonder what the deal with this one is.

Las Vegas Shakedown (1955) Cheapy cheap piece of crap. Grand Motel dubbed it at IMDB. Yeah, a series of melodramatic moronic stories around a fake casino in fake LV. A pity because O'Keefe is as good as usual and Grey as cute too and the first 10 minutes make you believe it could be interesting. 3/10

I don't think all the time transitions in Enchantment occur as match cuts. Some of them do, but others may in fact be clever stagings done in a single take. All the transitions in OUATIA, though, IIRC, are match cuts.

I should also mention the film has a fantastic OST by Ibrahim Maalouf, not his usual thing, I gather, this has mostly piano and strings, sometimes sonically manipulated. I wasn't able to find a CD of it, but I did manage to download the album from amazon on digital. That's OK for now, but if anyone can point me to where I might be able to get a physical copy of the OST, I'd sure appreciate it.

King of the Underworld (1939)  Probably most moronic (a joke in the movie) gangster movie ever. Actually it plays like a (conscious?) parody of the genre though I'm not sure how much of it was meant to be. What makes it worth seeing are some of the brilliant dialogues which prove how much Bogart was good at comedy: I laughed at 5-6 good ones and this earns this crap 7/10. Kay Francis is not pretty but attractive, never noticed her before.

Celle que vous croyez / Who You Think I Am (2019) - 8/10. In Atonement, many years ago, it was revealed at the end that the conclusion of the story as presented was a lie; Vanessa Redgrave showed up in an epilogue and told us what the real ending was. Man did I feel cheated. This film avoids that mistake by telling us the real story first (Juliet Binoche pretending to be a younger woman to snag a boyfriend on social media), and only then using a lie as a follow-up. A much more satisfactory way to proceed. But I don't want to talk about the plot, which is adequate, I want to talk about what is superlative, namely, the look of the film. This is the best-looking digital presentation I think I've ever seen. I'm guessing the fact it was shot with the Sony CineAlta f65 has a lot to do with it. Also, it features marvelous locations marvelously used. Funnily enough, I only saw this film because Mrs. J is such a Binoche fan, but I'm the one who ended up really liking it. Now I need it on blu so I can watch it over and over again.

When I took my only film class, they called these "match cuts".

The other half you can skip it: about deportation, immigration and the romantic side with Mature falling for (and being redeemed by) Terry Moore, about whom I wondered all the time how she ever got the part. But  the beginning and the end of the movie are at least original and in noir style shot, and a good  casino "hold-up" scene. Except for a couple of minutes entirely shot in studio. Mature is perfect in his usual good bad guy part. Bendix, as the villiain, doesn't convince me (as he never does in any part). 6/10
