Blu-ray review: Black Book

Call it a guilty pleasure if you like, but Black Book is one of the most engaging films I’ve seen in recent years, and definitely Paul Verhoeven’s best offering in a long time. Tartan’s Blu-ray release offers up an impressive transfer and audio options, alongside extras that are insightful but rather limited in quantity.

Tartan kicks off their Blu-ray support with Paul Verhoeven’s World War 2 thriller Black Book, released on the UK on September 24th. I’ve reviewed this Region 0 disc, which features an excellent transfer and boasts solid audio support.

It sounds like watching this film would just make me throw things at the computer screen, so I'm afraid I'll have to pass on this one.

'What comes through more than anything else is, rather than misogyny, an overwhelming sense of misanthropy.'

Hang on, you sure you're not accidentally reviewing The New York Ripper? :)

Nope, last time I checked it was Black Book all right. No eye gouging, that’s how you can tell the difference. :D

Have to say, given what I know of your film-watching tendencies, asking you not to think about it too hard probably isn’t the best idea!
