I'm really looking forward to seeing what this looks like in high definition, so the BD can't arrive soon enough!

Looking forward to getting this and keeping my Shameless blu rays up to date but still feel this would look more at home alongside the rest of my Arrow Argento collection in the white box.

It would have been great to get Argento talking about the film on the disc as well but Cozzi is always very informative.

I seem to remember being told by someone at Shameless a while back that Argento doesn't like to talk about this film because of all the hassle it's been over the years, plus he was busy on Dracula 3D at the time Shameless were putting together this package so that's why there's nothing from him.

As for commentary track, Shameless have never given loads of extras as they prefer to spend their money on top notch restorations and getting the audio perfect! It's just a result of their budget which (as has been said many times before on other threads) is even smaller than Arrow's. Arrow can afford to invest in both the film and the extras, for Shameless it's a choice between the two so they tend to leave the extras off.

Cool

Gimmie...Gimmie...Gimmie, , the only problem is dvd or Blu? in a post Chrimbo splurge a Blu would seem obvious, but if the price differential is sufficient might go dvd, I'll just be happy with a copy to be honest.

I must admit I was a bit surprised Arrow didn't release it, but this is a feather in Shameless' cap!

Really looking forward to getting my mitts on this one

One more question. Why does the cover say Four Flies OF Grey Velvet? Even though it's been turned around, it's quite clearly an f instead if an n. Look at the f in Four Flies. Or has the title always looked like that?

Doesn't the title actually translate as Four Flies Of Grey Velvet?
