Default The BFI Dual Format releases

I've searched and there doesn't seem to be a specific thread for this great range of blu rays from the BFI. There's some real cult gems iin there too. Anyone have a favourite?

If you're not sure what they are, Digital Fix are currently doing a great retrospective of the entire range here.

For what it's worth, my favourite so far is tied between Pete Walker's Man of Violence and Norman J. Warren's Her Private Hell, but they're all great!

I think I've got about half a dozen of these. All great quality blu-rays.
I think I only have one since they went dual format, a situation I must remedy.

They've since gone back and re-released their first batch as dual format as well. I have several that are just blu ray. it's handy having both, but I'm quite happy!

Have you seen London in the Raw? It's amazing to see that sleaze in high def!

I also have a fair few of these releases. BFI are easily one of the best labels out there at the moment.

I need some of those! Except for Salo, that one looks like the brown sausages at Aldo Valetti's dinner party compared to my precious Criterion DVD.

Really? Is the transfer bad on the Salo blu ray? That's one I've never seen and would like to get.

Apparently, it has really bad Edge Enhancement. Can't say I noticed it, myself.

I haven't seen London in the Raw but since earlier I have just ordered 4 more Flipside titles. One of which is that.

While it is a BFI release, Salo isn't of the Flipside series, though.

Cool. It's a great film to put on during a party!

What others did you order?
