4.0 out of 5 stars Losey's English Opus., 22 April 2013
Losey's outstanding work with Pinter, Baxter and Bogarde. The part played by Julie Christie in The Go Between also a tour-de-force.

As to the DVD's, a tad low quality soundwise and no sub-titles. May be better to wait for the forthcoming bluray burns of some of these titles, but have no evidence myself to support this view as have not seen them.

Dustin Hoffman was excellent as lead protagonist. Some of the horse racing scenes are exceedingly well shot, by far and the best being the first training session. The close ups of the other main characters, the 3 or 4 minutes of the scene itself and the music; Michael Mann at his best. Pity the series had to close; can understand completely reasons for doing so.

5.0 out of 5 stars No doubt about it., 12 Feb 2004
A wonderful album...hours of listening into.Eric Dolphy is on two tracks and masterpiece tracks they are. Coltrane on soprano sax and Dolphy on bass clarinet on 'India' and then the reverse, with Coltrane on tenor and Dolphy on alto on 'Impressions';are they kidding or what?But these are truly marvellous tracks.. Dolphy's sound is extraordinarily compelling and Coltrane is majestic in exploring every facet of expression in breath,note and chord.This is a top notch release from the Impulse label and comes highly recommended.
