    Just Keep Waiting

    Anyone with an interest in this remarkable film has known that since making it to home video, ANY transfer embodiment of it has been woefully inadequate. The latest Blu Ray release is, unfortunately, no exception. The audio transfer remains hollow and soulless. The video transfer looks derived from a 4th generation LaserDisc. Unfortunately, this masterpiece has yet to be perfected for home viewing. Just keep waiting. Perhaps after those responsible for this latest home video blasphemy see the poor returns, they'll finally decide to forego raw profitability and do justice to what still remains one of the most beautiful films ever made. Blu Ray is here! ... and we're all still waiting for it in The Last Emperor.

    Well Done Movie, Expensive Criterion Dvd

    I thought 'The Last Emperor' was a well done film. It's not the type of movie I'd watch repeatedly, but for those who haven't seen it, I'd recommend doing so. As for this Criterion dvd set, it's loaded with everything a die-hard fan could want, but it's also quite expensive, so I'd only recommend purchasing this to those who consider this one of their all time favorites.

    Excellent teaching tool

    This film is great when teaching modern Chinese history. The film covers many aspects of early 20th century Chinese history from the perspective of the last emperor. The 4 dvd box set allows the user the convenience of choosing different themes.
