Bad Timing, Good Movie,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bad Timing [DVD] (DVD)
Perhaps Nic Roeg's last genuinely great movie, and following on from Performance, Walkabout, Don't Look Now and The Man Who Fell To Earth, that's pretty impressive going, even if the eighties and nineties were a little on the quiet side (finding the poor guy loitering in TV movie hell).
This is an excellent, disturbing psycho-drama which has been overdue a re-release for too long. The cast, while unconventional, are all excellent (even Art Garfunkle, no seriously) and Roeg's compositions and editing heighten the sense of dislocation and mounting unease. Not to all tastes, but essential for Roeg fans.
The DVD info is a little misleading, the picture is 4:3 but letterboxed, which is a slightly roundabout way of saying non-anarmorphic widescreen. A decent, mostly clean print and clear sound make up for the lack of any notable extra features. A director's commentary would have been great, but seriously unlikely. All in all a bit of a bargain.
