From BU's facebook page
Let us know if you'd buy MAN, PRIDE AND VENGEANCE on Blu-ray. We're currently on the fence due to the last couple Spaghetti Western Blu-rays underperforming, and poor presales on next month's COMPANEROS Blu-ray release. Please get your COMPANEROS pre-order in if you want to see more Spaghetti Westerns on Blu-ray...

There were lots of things before there was Fifty Shades of Grey. Like my hand being detached from my forehead, for one.

Honestly, if the hype for that movie means films like this get a Blu release I can't complain. Hopefully Criterion would consider upgrading Maitresse for similar reasons.

Sad news about Fight for your Life
But I must say that there is a film that I have in my library called Fight for you Life. I love the movie and I wanted to put it out on Blu-Ray. So, after doing the SD transfer 10 years ago on the film, I shipped the negative back to the rights’ holder on the film, in New Jersey. Just two weeks ago I contacted the rights’ holder, looking to re-access the negatives, so that I could make an HD transfer of the film, and she informed me that two years ago, during Hurricane Sandy, her basement flooded and the negatives were destroyed. [Pause] And, you know, I didn’t make the movie, it’s not been a big seller for me, it was not an economic loss for me, but I was devastated with that news. To me, it tells me just how fragile movies are. In the blink of an eye, a movie can no longer exist. So, Fight for Life in future media will fade away because the only thing that exists on the movie, today, is a 10-year old SD transfer. With [the negatives] lost, Fight for Life will be lost decades into the future.

I've never seen Fight For Your Life (it's been on my watchlist for a long time as a William Sanderson fan), but ugh, that's really sad news. I know one or two 35mm prints still exist and have played at the Cinefamily, Cinedrome, etc, but still, the negative...

Fingers crossed some unholy alliance of Lustig, Refn and Tarantino (who must surely own a print) can form to digitally preserve whatever materials exist for the film. In the meantime, with no Blu upgrade on the horizon, looks like I'll take the plunge for the DVD.

Criterion did a very good job of making one of Jacques Demy's films into HD for the Demy Boxset & the film's negatives NO LONGER exist so IT IS possible to HD a film with lost or non existing negatives of a film.

What, Lola? Isn't the general consensus that the transfer (not the source) is awful.

It is certainly possible, but then again we don't know what other pre-print elements exist for the title or what condition they're in. Given that the licensor had access to the negative, they may not have made any effort to preserve an inter-positive or other material of the sort. Whatever the current element situation is, the extra detail and clarity present in the negative are now permanently lost, which is a real pity regardless of whether a satisfactory HD rendering of the title is possible or not.
