This review is from: Empire Records [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This film is superb. It has a decent plot and the acting is first rate. It has some well-known stars like Liv Tyler, but the real stars are the ones who are still relatively unknown. Anthony LaPaglia (who has a new seris on Channel 4) is a star as the manager of an independent music store in the US called Empire Records. Rory Cochrane, Johnny Whitworth, and Ethan Embry easily steal the show as the quirky employees and are supported by the larger names like Liv Tyler, Renee Zellweger and Robin Tunney.
The film revolves around the lives of the employees of Empire records as they fight and argue throughout the film. It is difficult to give any indepth plot descriptions because it mainly invovles one action and the consequences to it. I will therefore just say that it is a somewhat esoteric comedy which can be viewed lighthearedly or with intense scrutiny.
This is the type of film ou can watch repeatedly without getting bored, I should know I watch it every few months.
I can't understand why it isn't in a decent format and only in region 1 but if you can play region 1 dvds then buy this
