Un Flic, anyone?

Has anybody picked this one up? I know the film well, but what about the transfer?

Here's what mondo-digital said about the transfer. I agree with their opinion on the transfer. very solid!


"Given the sparse availability of Melville films on video around the world, apart from three non-subtitled anamorphic DVD releases in France and passable VHS editions of Le Samouraļ and Le Doulos, Anchor Bay's release of Un Flic is a welcome turn against the tide. The presentation looks terrific, rendering this potentially tricky film's color schemes with great skill and attention to detail. A few outside helicopter shots during the main robbery look a little muddy and shaky, but this is most likely a handicap carried over from the original materials. Dubbed bootleg tapes of this title have made the rounds for a few years, but now they can thankfully be consigned to the trash bin. The disc also includes an insert reproducing the theatrical poster, as well as an oblique European trailer which recuts the opening five minutes to very puzzling effect."
