Summary: One of the cool things about DVD is the ability to make subtitles optional. Over in the US, the Criterion release of "Bande A Part" allows you to dispense with the subtitles, allowing you to enjoy a picture uncluttered by text once you're familiar with the dialogue. Great shame then that this BFI release for the UK market doesn't give you the choice - you're forced to always view the film with subtitles whether you like it or not, making it no superior to a VHS copy in this respect. However, the other features and extras (again, fewer than on the Criterion release) are worthwhile. And the film itself, of course, is genius! But the BFI's oversight means I can only award this particular transfer three stars.
