    The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Arrow's new blu-ray, which looks suitably beautiful, though I counted two errors in the subtitles (one line is missing a word, causing a syntax error; another line uses the wrong word, causing a completely different meaning than that which is spoken. I'm also not terribly enamoured of the audio mixβ€”Morricone's discordant score is too low in the mix and screams are a bit too shrill.
