Default 'Fallen Angels' - High-Def Digest Review

Please welcome Steven Cohen to High-Def Digest. For his first review, Steven has covered 'Fallen Angels.' He says this is a hypnotic, loosely plotted film, which while visually striking, may appeal to fans more than first time viewers. This Blu-ray features solid video and audio and a few extras. Recommended. Fans of the director should be happy.

Welcome Steven, great first review! I really liked some of the points you made up about Kar Wai's overall style and I agree with you. While Kar Wai's films are fasinating visually they sometimes lack in the story department, not that this is a bad thing it seems clear that he is a much more visual director. Also something to note, this is the first time in a while that I see a Kino release reviewed. I have been thinking about grabbing Battleship Potemkin and Metropolis but have been waiting for HDD's opinions in their PQ and AQ. What happened to all those releases?

Great news about the Metropolis review, eagerly awating that one! In the other hand, it is sad Kino never sent Battleship Potemkin, one of those releases I have really been on the fence for quite a while. Anyone who has seen it can comment in the PQ and AQ? Obviously not in depth but maybe just to tell if it is a good or bad transfer.

Thanks for the welcome, guys. I'm real happy to be contributing to the site. I've actually had my own copy of Potemkin sitting on my shelf for a while. Haven't gone through it yet. I'll suggest it as a possible review title.

Wow I don't agree with this review at all. I'll be sure to ignore this new guy's reviews for the future...
