Absolutely! O0 You're all right, Roy. I don't care WHAT Tucumcari_Bound says about you.

WTF are you talking about?

Here's a quick comparison of the old Image version (top) vs. the new MoC edition (bottom):


Yeah, the MoC seems a bit dark here, but it may look better on a CRT. I don't doubt that the Image has been contrast boosted.

Here's another comparison, although not an exact match. It's obvious to me that the Image is blockier, less film-like than the MoC.



I believe also that the Image transfer is interlaced, the MoC progressive.

There are over 3 hours of extras. I just watched a 1999 interview with Guiseppe Rotunno that's 27 minutes long. He's worked with just about everybody, so he has plenty to say of interest.

I watched this for the first time last night.

In spite of it being made after Senso, there seemed to still be a neo-realist influence. However, Giuseppe Rotunno's b&w cinematography was beautiful (and at times almost noirish) and professional actors were used - both Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale were of course later photographed together again by Rotunno in Visconti's The Leopard.

A new Blu (Region A) from 4K scans! Came out today.

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Rocco-and-His-Brothers-Blu-ray/134754/#Review

I loved, loved, loved this film when I first (and only) saw it maybe close to 10 years ago. I remember almost nothing other than a rape scene maybe? Or attempted rape? Idk. I may pick this up in a few paychecks, or with all the money Noodles and DJ game me on my Kickstarter.

Edit: According to my first post on this topic I watched it almost exactly 11 years ago. which means I was 15. definitely needs a rewatch.

I bought the Masters of Cinema blu a few years back and I'm content with that (it's a good film but not one I love). Still, I'd like to hear your response to this new release.

Hmm, according to this, this new release might be an essential purchase.
