U.S. distributors Kino Lorber have announced that they will release on Blu-ray Dutch director Paul Verhoeven's Flesh+Blood (1985), starring Rutger Hauer, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tom Burlinson, and Brion James. The release is scheduled to arrive on the U.S. market on September 16th.
Synopsis: In the chaotic, morally bankrupt Europe of 1510, a cold-hearted warrior named Martin (Hauer) leads his motley crew of mercenaries into battle to reclaim the castle of an ousted nobleman. But when the despot betrays them, martin and his band of ruffians strike back by kidnapping the innocent young maiden (Leigh) betrothed to the nobleman's son - a fearless Renaissance man who must risk life and limb to rescue the woman he loves!
PLEASE Kino, start cleaning the prints you use for your blu ray releases! Time to take the blu ray market seriously. The past films you have released look like "film prints" with dirt, scratches, and debris on the finished product. Orson Wells' classic The Stranger was treated like an unwanted orphan. That film deserved to be restored to prestine condition. I do have to admit, I am VERY thankful you do not use (much) digital noise reduction. That I am thankful for, but your releases could look a lot better. Just a blu ray fanatic's opinion.
