Gripping, but ultimately unsatisfying,
This review is from: Parallax View, The  [DVD] (DVD)
The technical quality of the DVD is fairly good. Although there would appear to have been no special remastering as there is a little dust and deterioration on the print, and nor are there any special features worthy of note, the print is sharp and the sound quality is good. The film is also presented in its original Panavision format.
As a film, I found it gripping, but ultimately found the ending unsatisfying. A little more in the way of plot explanation wouldn't have gone amiss, as I found myself completely confused as to what had happened. This isn't a film that you can watch casually, and it feels as though it has been edited rather too tightly, perhaps losing some of the plot that might have been present in the original script. Nonetheless, the performances are excellent - as several reviewers have noted, it's a shame that films of this quality are not made today.
