  • DVD COMMENTS: HK Video’s dvd (only available in the Coffret Femmes Fatales box set) is not among their best work. I've seen a couple of screencaptures from the R1 dvd, and while HK Video looks at times notably better, I think the R1 is probably overall better. HK Video's transfer is boosted and bluish. Contrast is too hight and skintones often look unnatural. This is still far better than the Dutch dvd. Personally I can't decide whether to double dip and get the R1, or wait and see if Toei ever gets over to releasing this film (without subs of course). Currently no perfect version exist. - HungFist
