Etiquette Pictures is a new video label which will be restoring of some significant art house, underground and experimental cinema, all on blu-ray for the very first time. The first of it’s offerings to us Some call it loving.

The film is a modern day re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty.

At his secluded castle he awakens her with a kiss. Robert introduces her to his strange world, but she pines for a more complex life.

The standout in this film was the strung out drummer played by Richard Pryor. The bonus features included in this Blu-ray/DVD set is  Bonus Features
A commentary with director James B. Harris, two video featurettes one with director James B. Harris the other from cinematographer Mario Tosi, extensive outtakes, booklet and reversible cover.

While I am not the biggest of fans of this style of films, I know there are many people who love the off the wall art house style films. The restoration is very nice and would make a great addition to any art house fans collection.
