3.0 out of 5 stars Alfred Hitchcock and his music, 21 April 2013

Nice addition to the collection! First disc with Bernhard Herman's finest work, including Vertigo and Psycho is the better of the two, for both quality and content. The 2nd disc is a bit poor, with unimpressive sound quality, given modern day methods of improving on these things. I have given this just 4 stars as the 2nd disc could be better.

This review is from: Tess (DVD & Blu-ray) [1979] (DVD)
Very pleased to receive this Blu ray in the post. Quality is good, but not fantastic. The BFI have done a good job, but it is missing the original play in (overture) and intermission from 1981 cinema release. I appreciate it is a re-release that Pathe did last year, so these missing elements are not surprising, but considering all the trouble the BFI went to, I think they should have gone the extra mile. But having said that, it is still lovely to look at, and remains among Polanski's great films. The extras are great, and this version is so much better than the earlier DVD release.
