Default '°Alambrista!' - High-Def Digest Review

Luke has reviewed the Criterion release of '°Alambrista!' He says this is a great film. This Blu-ray features decent video, clean, clear audio, and a few good extras. Recommended.

Luke, this was shot on 16mm, which is why it has less detail/isn't as sharp as some of those other titles (all of which were 35mm productions, B&W or no). The blu-ray transfer is also sourced from a 35mm blow up, and not the 16mm original negative, which might account for the additional roughness and even some of the specks.

Awesome. I will be getting this for sure. The unofficial trilogy of films dealing with this subject matter are:

El Norte
A Better Life
