'Raging Bull: 30th Anniversary Edition' - High-Def Digest Review
David Krauss has turned in a knockout review for 'Raging Bull: 30th Anniversary Edition.' He's clearly a big fan, and says this Blu-ray presents the film with exceptional video and audio, and the assortment of extras is extensive to say the least. This is a must own, BUT if you own the previous edition, read this review carefully before deciding if you want to double dip.

"thankfully lacking that high-gloss, shadowy, studio look contemporary directors often employ when making black-and-white movies"

a towering review. pretty much sums up all of the thoughts i've had about one of my Top 10 favorite films, especially these two lines:
From the opening title sequence - slow-motion, long-shot footage of a sparring De Niro with classical music underscoring - Scorsese sets the tone. This is a grand story, operatic in scope and structure, one of majesty and tragedy.And in a stroke of genius, he uses color film stock just once during a brief home-movie sequence to heighten the humanity of his characters and remind us they are, in fact, real people.
bravo Dave, the wait for the review was most certainly worth it.

It was not a bad question at all. Hopefully you can catch it soon and let us know what you think. Always interested to hear first impressions of these older films.

Definitely looking forward to it. I will purchase it as soon as I can. I can't believe what I have been missing for so many years. I really like Scorcese, his style and attention to detail just pop out of the screen in every film I hace seen from him. The review was fantastic, GREAT work David, you completely sold the movie to me.

If you really like Scorsese, run, don't walk- this is his greatest film.

Comes out in the UK next month and can't wait to watch it on blu-ray, I've only got a 1 disc DVD in a Scorsese boxset so looking forward to the special features too.
Now, where's that Taxi Driver release?
