Competition time: Samsara

You may remember Indy Datta’s review of Samsara back in August (please do check out the images and the stunning trailer embedded in that review, it’s pretty amazing) which concluded with the opinion that ‘Samsara’s images themselves are consistently glorious’ and that the Blu-Ray ‘is destined to become a preferred demo disc of home cinema nerds everywhere.’

Well, nerds, I have good news! The dual-play Blu-Ray will be out on Monday and we have a copy to give away. Give away! Like some kind of competition! Sweet.
