Conclusion: Criterion has knocked it out of the park once again with more of Satyajit Ray's film resume. This time we get 'The Big City' along with 'The Coward', all on one disc. These films are brilliant and should be seen by all of Ray's fans. The video and audio are true to source and are well done.
Conclusion: Like the rest of Artificial Eye's recent Blu-ray releases of Satyajit Ray's films, this new release of The Big City should make fans of the film residing in Region-B territories very happy.
Summary: Satyajit Ray's ravishing modern fable of (male-centric) tradition in peril receives a typically beautiful Blu-ray premiere from Criterion, bundled with Ray's barely distributed The Coward and other worthwhile extras.
