The Missing Picture DVD

the-missing-picture-posterA gorgeous-looking documentary about a sordid story, The Missing Picture is now available on DVD and streaming (plus on Blu-Ray on the European market).  Making us experience a sordid life in a Pol Pot’s labor camps, this French/Cambodian documentary intertwines clay figures and archival footage to deliver a film that is both haunting and visually-stunning. 

Unfortunately, as it is often the case for foreign documentaries, this edition is pretty bare, with just Dolby surround French and English soundtracks. Please note, a UK Blu-Ray edition is also available but, in that case, you will need a multi-zone Blu-Ray player.

Own it, Watch it or Skip it?

This was my favorite documentary last year (read our full review here) and you certainly need to watch it. While the story isn’t an easy subject, you’ll probably want to watch it again for the exceptional animation work. Because this edition is so bare, it’s up to you if you want to buy it but, fortunately, The Missing Picture is also available for streaming on Netflix and more.
