  • DVD COMMENTS: Synapse’s R1 dvd is a terrific package. The transfer is on par with Panik House’s work (this being one of the projects they inherited from Panik House when the company went bust). The extras feature not only the usual original trailer and biographies by Chris D but also an audio commentary by Japan Times’ Mark Schilling (with some silent parts but generally pretty interesting to listen to), a 14 minute Ishii at Venice feature, Ishii’s introduction for the film (4 min) and interviews with Shinya Tsukamoto and Minoru Kawasaki (23 min). A Teruo Ishii poster gallery (33 movie posters) is also included, with some hidden trailers. Finally there’s a 8 page booklet with liner notes by Patrick Macias, Tomo Machiyama and Jasper Sharp. The cover art is fully reversible with the original Japanese poster art on the flip side.
