Jimmy Is a Face,
This review is from: Quadrophenia (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
This remastered 2 disc set is absolutely brilliant in virtually all respects. The film print itself is wonderfully clean, the soundtrack is quite naturally fully engaging amd the acting is of the highest possible standard. It is quite easy to forget that those on the screen were actually earning a wage for their performances.
I won't bother explaining the plot. We all know it. Suffice to say that this is the very best ever presentation of this iconic cinematic masterpiece. The second disc features director Franc Roddam detailing the trials and tribulations of the production, also featured are quite lengthy and illumnating contributuions from Toyah, Phil Daniels and other key players.
This is an essential purchase. There is however one minor quibble. Given Pete Townshend's unquestionable genius couldn't he have done a Dolby 5.1 or even a DTS mix of the soundtrack for this release? I am sure there were good reasons why this was not possible but if only...........an opportunity missed.

Good film marred by tragic performance from Sting. "We are the mods" out of kilter with the times - more a football chant from 70s.
