The Reviews Are In...Again

When Takashi Miike's "banned" contribution to the Masters of Horror series, Imprint, was released to DVD by Anchor Bay a while back, many reviews singled out the audio commentary by Chris D. and myself for special praise. Now Imprint has been released to Blu-Ray with our commentary in tow, and the kudos are flying once again.

Says Gabriel Powers of DVDActive:

"...Every episode does come with an audio commentary, but of the four tracks only Imprint's commentary is particularly stunning. Japanese film experts Chris D. and Writer Wyatt Doyle are engaging and entertaining as they try to contextualize Miike’s wacky feature within the realms of their expertise."

I can't say for sure whether or not it's a first, but Imprint is the only DVD release I can recall where critics have lambasted the movie while praising the commentary track. It's very flattering, to say the least.
