That reminds me: I’m still owed a set of Jan Švankmajer Blu-rays for investing in his last film way back when. But I assumed at the time that “late 2018” translated to “any time in 2019”, as that’s usually the case.

How does the digital download look? Netflix has real shitty encoding (understandably for speed reasons), and seeing a film shot in various film formats and colors, I'd occasionally encounter incredibly annoying macroblocking. I've also been secretly holding off on re-watching this film as I'm holding out hope that it plays on 35mm in Los Angeles soon.

I will let you know when I have downloaded it..may be a few days/week or so yet (due to work commitments!).

I was hoping to catch the screening in London as well..but again due to work the screening times didn't suit.

If anyone is still interested in cd's,La-La Land records just released Michel Legrand's score.
