Vadim's Blood And Roses At Cinebeats


Kimberly at Cinebeats has written an extraordinary review of a truly great undervalued film, Roger Vadim's masterful 1960 chiller BLOOD AND ROSES.
Kimberly and I share an admiration for Vadim, and it is wonderful to read such a thoughtful and well written tribute to one of his key works.
BLOOD AND ROSES, possibly the best film of Vadim's career, is still unavailable on DVD which is really unfortunate. I highly recommend Cinebeats's fine look at this film, and hopefully one day it will find its way back onto the home video market.

Thanks so much for the shout-out Jeremy! I'm really glad you enjoyed my write-up about the film. It's really a shame that Vadim's Blood and Roses (and his work in general) is so overlooked and undervalued. Lets' hope that this films finds it's way onto DVD soon (along with Pretty Maids). Thanks again!!

She did do a great job with her write-up of Blood and Roses. What an amazing film. It was nice to read such a glowing and positive blog about it. It's definitely a film that is underrated and fairly ignored these days.

No problem Kimberly,
I loved your look at the film, and enjoyed reading it. It is a shame that some of his best films are still unavailable on disc...

Thanks Keith...I totally agree. I love seeing this wonderful film getting some quality exposure...
