What A Tale My Thoughts Could Tell...
on 25 September 2012
For fans of this movie looking for the long sought after "original director's cut" of 54, sadly it's not on this Blu-ray release. What is presented here is the heavily edited theatrical version and an extended cut (which basically has longer musical sequences). Whilst the picture quality is pretty good, the sound is a little on the soft side but once you turn it up you'll feel like you're in the legendary club Studio 54. This film has one of the best soundtracks of vintage late 70's early 80's dance music you're ever likely to hear. Why only three stars? There are NO bonus features. Not even the video for Stars on 54's mega hit "If You Could Read My Mind" or a theatrical trailer. Maybe one day the original director's version will see the light of my bluray laser. I await it's release in anticipation.
BIG note to Mirimax/Studio Canal :- Please release the original cut of the film. It needs to be seen as the director intended. You'll make your money back as it really has gained cult film status.
