Finally.

One of my favorite movies. I've owned the Alliance Canada release, and it's one of the few they've put out that I think actually looks pretty good. That said, if this looks better and has more special features I will happily double-dip.

Anyone who hasn't seen this really should. I mean anyone, regardless of what type of film you're into.

A nice little gem of a movie.

I'm always a bit confused when titles are announced on Blu-ray that are already for sale on Amazon.

What's up with the one on Amazon... is it a different format, or a limited edition or something?

Of course, even though a Blu-ray is pictured on Amazon, it doesn't actually say [Blu-ray] after the title like it usually does.

That's the Alliance Canada one that I own. Alliance Canada is notorious for dodgy transfers and incorrect info on the back, but this one is actually quite good considering the source material. Lots of fine detail, no real crush or artifacts. I paid $12.99 for it and it was a serious bargain. I would hold off on paying $35 for it, even though it is worth that easily if you can't get it another way.

It's fairly bare-bones, but it does come with a cool documentary that is subtitled about life in the favelas, including interviews with police in the area.

In short, get this movie for sure, but maybe wait on the US one or find a cheaper way to import the Canadian one.

If this one has better PQ or extras, I will double dip in a heartbeat.

Yeah, I'll just wait for the US release. I'm guessing it will be less than $20.

It's been years since I've seen it, so it will almost be like a new movie to me... looking forward to it.
