Default 'The Mikado' - High-Def Digest Review

E has reviewed the Criterion Collection release of 'The Mikado.' He says this doesn't quite compare to watching a live stage performance, but it's still a highly amusing rendition of the classic musical. The Blu-ray features excellent video and audio and a whole new set of bonus features. Recommended.

Great review E, I am always eager for any Criterion related review I can come around, was waiting for the one of this film. To be honest, I am not overly excited of getting this, the story sounds pretty good and also like it can provide one or two great laughs but... that's about it. With so many Criterion titles I still need to get, this one just can't reach the top of the list. Will give it a look when I can thought.

Thank you for the compliments, guys.

And Dark, it may not seem as tempting as 'Topsy Turvy,' which is an excellent film as well, but this is still a great movie worth watching for the stage production, costume design and the performances, especially Greene's Ko-Ko.

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.
