We need the beautiful world of Euro-Crime/Giallo & shown to us in its’ entirety. For way too long we’ve been having to source our R2 NTSCs, R1 PALs, horrible vhs pan & scan bootlegs with god-knows-what subtitles at the bottom, watching with no English subs/dubs & paying outrageous prices, to boot.
I’ve seen with my own eyes what QT’s love & involvement can do with a picture. I have my copy of “Cosa avete fatto a Solange?” I have my Raro prints of the few Di Leo’s masterpieces QT got involved with. They blow everything else done for this genre out of the water.
I really do think that Tarantino’s caring hand for these genres is what’s needed. I don’t want to have to buy any more crappy ill-sourced bootlegs from these jerkoffs that don’t care about films, but rather the money they can make from them. I’d rather not have to have an all-region dvd player to enjoy what effect Quentin can have in these genres. I really think that if Quentin goes after these for the love that we share with these movies, we can actually enjoy them 10x more than they were intended to. With the Tarantino touch.
Films I’d like to see beautifully remastered that no one’s given the time of day to: High Crime, Highway Racer, Violence For Kicks, From Corleone to Brooklyn, Fear in the City, The Burglars, Bloody Payroll, Born Winner, The Climber, Season for Assassins, A Quiet Place to Kill, The Seducers, Four Flies on Grey Velvet, The Day of the Cobra (the R1 released right now is a grey market pan & scan), Pronto Ad Uccidere (The Raro version is full-screen and has no Eng options), Ricco Cauldron of Death, Rome Armed to the Teeth, The Cynic, the Rat & the Fist, Violent Naples, Violent Rome, So Sweet…So Perverse, Every Man Is My Enemy, Blastfighter, The Blue-Eyed Bandit, Etc, Etc, Etc.
These are just examples of titles that have no release…for pretty much anywhere. :’(
Please help revive these genres under your name to 1) Give them more exposure and 2) Provide the love and resources needed to lift these out of obscurity.
Please. & Thank you.
