The audio on the original Bluray was very quiet, I used the filter LOUDNORM on box4 to make it better, now voices are a lot more clear and overall the sound is a lot better and not so quiet anymore. I included in the mkv rip both the original, untouched FLAC audio and the boosted aac audio as a secondary track, make sure to select it via vlc or with your video player of choice, mp4 and the streaming version only have the boosted aac audio.

Upgraded to 1080p w/softsubs on March 4rd, 2024.

    Wholly underrated film! Probably because it wasn’t the usual fair for Ferrara and people were put off by his name? Who knows?
    Still, I love it’s completely different angle of approach to the subject.
    Bonus, for me at least, was sitting behind Iggy Pop at the Anjelica in NYC when I first saw it!
