2.0 out of 5 stars why change History?, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Weekend Of A Champion [DVD] (DVD)
Whilst there has been a good job done in restoring picture and sound this release is very misleading and disapointing
Although the DVD mentions that it contains new material it does not state that the integrity of the original film has been altered!
The film has been cut by around 13 minutes and a newly shot sequence inserted towards the end as well as the original end changed which had a freeze frame of Jackie Stewart.
The newly shot material is off interest but why has it not been offered as aditional material. No excuse in these days of DVD and bluray. Other motoring films of similar vintage have been released and have not been messed about with, so why do this to this classic film!
There is a real danger here of interfearing with History! The film was made that way for all its merits and faults so why alter it.
I had been waiting for this film for a long time previously owning a rather rough 16mm print.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEW BLURAY RELEASE, 7 Jan 2014
It is probably hard to describe Perfection in any art form. I would have to say " In the Heat of the Night" is probably in that category.
Every element of the film works perfect from the wonderful performances by Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger, the colourful cinematography by legendary
cameraman Haskell Wexler. The film also has a wonderful bluesy jazz score by Quincy Jones.

A must for any film enthusiast of film maker and practising film makers!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Colin firth great actor, 30 Dec 2008
This review is from: Tumbledown [DVD] (DVD)
I worked at BBC when this movie was made and even screened the TX prints.
The film brilliantly acted by Colin Firth, although you have no real pity for his real life character an arogant nasty man. I advise you all to watch the movie Iluminados por el fuego (Blessed for fire) to see how life was on other side of the fence. I think I would have shot him even if I had been fighting for
