Ashes Of Time Hong Kong Laserdisc

Front cover

Inspired by listening to episode 128 of Podcast On Fire (a must listen to for HK fans), the second Tom On Fire edition, during which Ken Brorsson briefly waxes lyrical on the subject of laserdiscs, and the Hong Kong release of Wong Kar Wai's Ashes Of Time in particular. So I thought I'd dig it out and share it all with you, as far as laserdiscs go, it's a truly magnificent thing to behold, check it out!

Forget Ashes Of Time Redux, this is where Wong Kar Wai's masterpiece is really at on home video!

Hi, what is the transfer quality of the laserdisc like?
Also - do you know where I can get a copy of the laserdisc??

The laserdisc transfer is similar to the Mei Ah dvd but without the compression problems the dvd has. Keep a lookout on ebay, they show up on there every so often. It's a real beauty of a set.
