Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Martin Scorsese took a daring turn from the mean streets that made his reputation in the early 70s with New York, New York, his homage to the big-band era. And what a homage it is: the dazzling production design by Boris Leven continues to impress over the film's nearly three-hour length. And there's no denying the anthemic appeal of Kander and Ebb's title song, belted with winning bravado by costar Liza Minnelli in a show-stopping finale. But as valiantly as Minnelli and Robert De Niro try, they can't elevate the shaky plot beyond its two-dimensional construct. It purports to be a Star Is Born-like tragedy of colliding careers but too often it feels like inadvertently eavesdropping on a marriage counsellor's most truculent clients. (There are times you want someone--anyone--to slap Minnelli upside the head with a copy of Women WhoLove Too Much.) The film is for diehard Minnelli (or Scorsese) fans only. --Anne Hurley

Product Description

Oscar®-Winning director Martin Scorsese* teams with Academy Award® Winners** Liza Minnelli and Robert De Niro in this musical masterpiece celebrating the glorious days of the big band era in the Big Apple. Jimmy is a joint-jumpin’ saxophonist on his way to stardom. Francine is a wannabe starlet who dreams of singing in the spotlight. When they meet, sparks fly--and when he plays and she sings, they set New York on fire. It’s the beginning of a stormy relationship as the two struggle to balance their passions for music and each other under the pressures of big-time show biz.

*2006, The Departed
** Liza Minnelli: Actress, Cabaret (1972); Robert De Niro: Actor, Raging Bull (1980); Supporting Actor, The Godfather Part II (1974)

4.0 out of 5 stars The Blu Ray Is region free !! 6 July 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Was not quite sure if this was region free or not and decided to take a gamble.....indeed, it is region free and if you can pick it up as I did for round the ten pound mark, then it's a bargain. The other reviewers have said more or less the goods and the not-so-goods of the movie I believe. Liza's vocals really are amazing though....she really was vocally at the very top here...and she looks stunning in some scenes.......DeNiro's acting is also quite something.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Badly Underrated Classic 20 Sep 2007
Format:DVD
This Film has long been one of my all time favourites. I was shocked and appaled to find only one [bad] review on amazon!

This is not just Martin Scorsese trying to do a 40s musical as most people seem to expect. It is a deeply disturbing film, with very complex characters. It seems at the start that Robert's harsh, almost mentally unstable, leading man seems too much for Liza's fragile leading lady but as the film goes on both characters evolve. You really do get involved with the lead roles, they're both terrifically acted.

That doesn't mean that musical sequences aren't some of the best I've seen, however. This singing (mainly done by Liza with a few guest apparences here and there) is perfect. Liza was in her prime in this film; she soars on numbers like "The World Goes Round" and "Just You, Just Me"; does a wonderful Peggy Lee impression with "There Goes The Ball Game" and proves she is just as much of a star as her mother in the breathtaking sequence "Happy Endings" (you have to watch the long version to get "Happy Endings", it was cut oringinally). The title song really is amazing and once experienced, Frank's version will never seem the same. (I'm not sure which high notes this other reviewer was criticing her on? her range is actually centered a little higher than her mothers so she seems quite at ease in this film.)

A stunning and very deep film. Greatly missunderstood but worth looking into. The sets are wonderfully exaggerated and the [mostly improvised] acting from the leads is truely brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars the last great musical? (contains spoilers) 18 May 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The late 70s/early 80s saw three of Hollywood's wonderkids stumble and suffer serious commercial flops: Steven Spielberg with "1941", his homage to the madcap screwball movies of the early 60s, Francis Ford Coppola with his Zeotrope studio projects such as the noir-ish "Hammett" and the Las Vegas musical "One from the Heart", and Martin Scorsese with his epic "New York New York". All these films, with their period nuances, garish colours reminiscent of 50s musicals like "An American in Paris" and an obvious fondness for the heyday of the Hollywood studio system when so much was created on a soundstage, suggest a back-burner project that the directors' fame and clout could now drive through and green-light. Of these films, Scorsese's has probably weathered best. Yes, the story is slight and cut from the well-trodden "boy-meets-girl/gotta sing, gotta dance" mould with little embellishment but, boy, it looks good. It opens on VJ night in 1945, with Robert de Niro's arrogant and recently demobbed saxophonist Jimmy Doyle trying to get off with still-in-uniform singer Francine Evans (Liza Minnelli) at a victory party. Despite her best efforts to shake him off, Francine finds herself in the same hotel as Doyle and uncomfortably sharing a taxi with him next day as she goes for an audition, only to be hijacked away to Jimmy's own audition for a jazz band. Once there, Doyle quickly antagonizes the club owner until quick-thinking Francine starts singing, at which point the owner offers them joint work. And so a professional and personal relationship is born. Read more ›

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Considering the chaotic, often drug-fuelled circumstances of its production, New York, New York seems a lot more disciplined and successful than it has any right to be. While there's never once a sense or flavor of New York - this is pure Hollywood all the way - Scorsese's mixture of stylised settings and naturalistic drama goes beyond the traditional happy ending and takes what starts out a standard boy-meets-girl musical plotline into darker emotional territory. It may lose its way towards the and (partially due to the overlong Happy Endings number taking us away from the characters for too long), but it gets a lot more right than it gets wrong, and has a great use of color. It was also interesting to compare the theatrical version and director's cut included on the DVD - surely the easiest restoration ever since Scorsese literally cut two reels and left the rest of the film intact.

The extras from the original laserdisc release are present and correct on a very impressive and comprehensive two disc DVD set - audio commentary by Martin Scorsese and Carrie Rickey, alternate ending and 40-minutes of alternate takes and deleted scenes, two-part documentary The New York, New York Stories, an interview with Liza Minnelli, selected scene commentary by cinematographer Lazlo Kovacs, storyboards, stills and poster gallery, Martin Scorsese introduction, teaser trailer and full theatrical trailer and booklet. Not all have been carried over to the Blu-ray release, which only offers the 163-minute version, loses the storyboard and stills galleries, booklet and, most substantially, only has 19 minutes of deleted scenes and alternte takes ratherthan the full 40 minutes.
