On the DVD: this is an anamorphic widescreen 1.85:1 version of the 121-minute 1974 re-release, with one additional scene for Eileen Brennan's waitress, now labelled "the director's cut". It boasts a great sounding mono track, with alternate soundtracks and subtitles in a bunch of languages; a tiny promo piece from 1974 with a Bogdanovich interview; a solid hour-long retrospective documentary with interviews from a lot of the cast and crew (including future director Frank Marshall, an assistant and bit-player) and some trailers. Oddly, Bogdanovich has done a full-length commentary for Orson Welles' Citizen Kane but not for his own best film. --Kim Newman

Its a great character study as well as a depiction of teenage sexuality. Its an intelligent and detailed film with great protagonists as they find their way through life in smalltown USA. The acting is stellar from the future star-to-be Jeff Bridges and the attractive Cybill Shepherd.
Its an inventive and fresh film. It has the same style as many other great 70's films like 'Mean Streets' and 'Taxi Driver' - its plot is secondary, the characters drive the story and make the film.
This film is for those people that really acknowledge good filmmaking and want to enhance their cinematic experience. Watch it now if you really, truly love moving pictures.
