    Editorial Review

    This lovely, 1991 adaptation of Elizabeth Von Arnim's novel has a superb cast and a tone so mellow you can feel your pulse get slower. Josie Lawrence and Miranda Richardson play a pair of unhappily married women who rent an Italian villa for a month, sharing the rent with a crusty Englishwoman (Joan Plowright) and a lonely aristocrat (Polly Walker). Sun, rest, sinking into the green grass for long naps--they all have a soulful effect on the quartet, and then on the men in their lives who make a surprise visit. Mike Newell (Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this movie!
    What I'd like to know is WHY ISN'T IT ON DVD YET?I see all kinds of stupid movies, old movies, boring movies coming out all the time.Why does it take so long for the good ones to come out?I don't get it.If it ever does come out on DVD I would highly recommend that you watch it--you will not be disappointed!I rank it up there with my other favorite movies like A&E's Pride & Prejudice, Persuasion, Jane Eyre, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Sound of Music, First Churchills, Meet me in St. Louis, Anne of Green Gables, well, you get the picture.Those are all different categories than Enchanted April, but it is one of the greats in my opinion!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, life-affirming movie!
    I can't surpass all the past reviewers in praising this film.Just see it - a wonderful and beautiful movie!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Help demand DVD release NOW
    In a review below, Tim Brain addresses an open letter to the DVD Release Coordinator at Paramount Studios.What a great idea. If everyone reading this would write a letter to Paramount and request the release of this superb film on DVD maybe we could get somewhere or at least an answer as to why it is STILL not available. Can we all join forces to help get this movie out.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ignore the Editorial Review
    Tom Keogh's Editorial Review of this delightful move does it a huge injustice, and if you take his word for it, does you one as well. That isn't to say the movie is for everyone. But if, for example, you, like me, are a fan of Northern Exposure, you'll feel right at home with these quirky, loveable, soulful characters. This is Steinbeck light, Steinbeck with a wink. It's part nostalgic remembrance of northern California before its gentrification, part romance, part surreal comedy. This is NOT the dark and brooding Grapes of Wrath, John Ford's masterpiece. It's less a meal than an appetizer that leavesyou wanting more. Nick Nolte and Debra Winger are young and wonderful, but the whole cast is superb.

    Editorial Review

    Disney's 1967 animated feature seems even more entertaining now than it did upon first release, with a hall-of-fame vocal performance by Phil Harris as Baloo, the genial bear friend of feral child Mowgli. Based on fiction by Rudyard Kipling, the film goes its own way as Disney animation will, but the strong characters and smart casting (George Sanders as the villainous tiger, Shere Khan) make it one of the studio's stronger feature-length cartoons. Songs include "The Bare Necessities" and "Trust in Me." Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Stop Limiting Issues
    I don't have this dvd and wouldn't buy it unless i was desperate.Disney is always pulling stuff like this: "Limited Issue, Limited Adition, Limited time Only", To Be Perfectly honest, it's becoming quite annoying.The only point i could think of for owning this dvd is because it's "dvd". However i believe it is a waste of money and a vhs copy is sufficent at this point. When they put it out again it should have the special features it deserves.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Funny, cute and exciting!
    This animated Disney classic is about a orphan named Mowgli, who lives in the jungle and befriends all kinds of animals such as elephants, a bear named Baloo, and other naimals.
    3-0 out of 5 stars A mix-up between good and bad
    Disney's THE JUNGLE BOOK seems rather irrelevant today when you look at the film. The movie was made in 1967, a time when the Golden Age of Animation was clearly over, especially for Disney. Watching this movie on laserdisc a couple of days ago I noticed how grainy the animation looked. And one shot looked like it was an exact copy of another shot. I understand whyDisney used did every single thing by hand--painstakingly doing it frame by frame. Every thing was carefully detailed. But by the 1960's it was too expensive to do. They started cutting corners. The animation grew worse in the 1970's, and it wasn't until new technology came out in the 80's that animation regained its glory.

    Editorial Review

    Barbra Streisand made her directorial debut with this 1983 adaptation of the Isaac Bashevis Singer story about a young Eastern European woman (Streisand) who disguises herself as a male at the turn of the century in order to get an education. Except for an excessive musical score with too many songs and Streisand's tiresome tendency to play characters who suppress their beauty, the film is crisp and engaging, and the gender-bending love story complications are fun, if gimmicky. Streisand gives a smart, vulnerable performance and gets fresh work from costars Mandy Patinkin and Amy Irving.Read more

    This is one of my favorite movies. It is a very interesting and moving picture and also very funny in some parts (Anshel's first night of wedded bliss with Hadass comes to mind.) Barbra Streisand was so talented in "Yentl." But I think Mandy Patinkin was just as entertaining, maybe more because the character of Avigdor was so multifaceted. They worked so well together. I don't understand how a classic like this is not on DVD? How could anyone give this film anything but 5 stars? ... Read more

    Crossing Delancey tells the story of two people from different socio-economic backgrounds who meet and stumble to try to form a relationship.Izzy is a young professional who meets Sam through her Jewish grandmother's matchmaker.When Izzy learns that her "match" sells pickles she's quick to try and hide her date from her friends.She's also quick to judge.Meanwhile, Sam has wholeheartedly fallen for Izzy, oblivious to the fact that she's a little embarrassed about his job.Can she overcome her preconceived notions about the man?

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of my top ten favorites
    Crossing Delancey is one of the most intelligent, sweet, REAL love stories ever. Made a Peter Riegert fan of me... he makes all the "pretty boy" protagonists look shallow and plastic.I have given away two copies of the VHS version, and am rapidly wearing out the third.I can see a definite need for a DVD.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Must Release DVD
    This movie has You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle beat, without a doubt. (While You've Got Mail was fine, Sleepless in Seattle was rather contrived, with wall-to-wall romantic music, which for me made it not at all appealing, as much as I like Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.)

    Rebecca is one of my very favorite movies. I have seen it many times and I never tire of it. The story is ageless and simple. An aristocratic widower marries a shy young girl and takes her to his castle-like home. There, she lives haunted by the shadow of Rebecca, his first wife. It is Rebecca did this, Rebecca did that, Rebecca all the time. A stunning classic.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Hitchcock Movie for People Who Don't Like Hitchcock Films
    Looking back in retrospect, I truly believe this film was the launching point of Hitchcock's career. He went on to have one of the most glorious careers in Hollywood history. Although he never won an Academy Award Oscar for the Best Director award; Hitchcock showed that he truly belonged in the top echelon of directors. Especially in his golden era: circa 1951 to 1959.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Classic Version Of The Romantic Suspense Novel. A-List Cast+Excellent Script+Flawless Direction=The DEFINITIVE Version.
    Alfred Hitchcock's first film made in America was an adaptation of the highly successful novel "Rebecca." In the role of the mysterious, but handsome, Maxim DeWinter, is Laurence Olivier (coming off the success of "Wuthering Heights" the year before; please see my review on it), giving a complex performance yet again. Joan Fontaine plays the nameless heroine, Judith Anderson plays the sinister Mrs. Danvers and George Sanders plays Rebecca's devious cousin. Very faithful to the novel, this film is. Recommended for English classes. Not Rated. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get Thee To DVD At Once!
    DVD please? I saw this movie when it aired on A&E, and it captivated me as a child, and still does as an adult. The theme song is great, and I still find myself listening to it!!! I became a fan of Sandra Dee's after I saw her in "Gidget" and "Imitation Of Life" and I thought her performance was so real and heart-wrenching. Constance Ford, as her bitchy,controlling mother Helen, gives a strong portrayal of a bitter, frigid, unhappy woman who takes her anguish out on everyone around her, even her daughter. (She really gives Mommie Dearest a run for her money). The scene where she forces Molly to submit to a pelvic exam after she and lover-boy Johnny (the late Troy Donahue) have an accident on the beach (the boat capsizes) is horrible and makes the viewer grimace. The fact that the doctor was old and gross looking, and began to unbutton Molly's blouse without her consent, as she screamed, "Oh please, no, I want my father! I've been a good girl! I haven't done anything wrong!!" makes it uncomfortable, but it also makes you despise Ford's character, as I'm sure that was the intention. Richard Egan as Molly's father Ken, is so handsome and gentle at times (he was equally effective in Walt Disney's "Pollyanna" as Dr. Chilton) is a man who is trapped in a loveless marriage who finds and falls in love again with Dorothy McGuire, as Sylvia, his first love, who also happens to be the mother of Molly's boyfriend, Johnny!!! One of Egan's best lines is as he and Helen are having an explosive argument. Ken finishes off his end by saying, "Why must you insist on making sex itself a filthy word!" Arthur Kennedy, as Johnny's drunken father Bart was one of the actor's best later performances. The conflict between the two couples and the predicament that follows (Molly becomes pregnant by Johnny) was considered racy for its day, but considering how little is shown, you have to wonder what all the fuss was about!!! (Although the "King Kong" reference could bear some debate on that subject). The argument between Molly and her mother at the beginning of the movie, sums up the times and also, in a way, the relationships between mothers and daughters. Molly: "Daddy, do I have to?" Ken: "Do you have to what?" Molly: "Wear this middy blouse to shore like a twelve-year-old! And she says I have to wear this armor-padded bra to flattenme out and a girdle! This thing even hurts, and I couldn't squeeze into this girdle with dynamite!"

Bagheera has problems getting Mowgli back to the man village, because Mowgli dosen't want to leave the jungle. Then Mowgli meets baloo the bear. After an encounter with the mad King Louie of the apes, and pressed to return to the man village by Baloo and Bagheera, Mowgli runs away. Later on, Mowgli meets Shere Khan, the tiger. I can't tell you what happens at the end, you'll have to see for yourself. Unfortunately, halfway through the production of the jungle book, Walt Disney died.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
    A friend mentioned this movie to me.I had never heard of it, but was glad to be able to find it at my library.After watching it and loving it, I was thrilled when I found a used VHS copy in a second hand shop.This is one of those movies that can be pulled out and watched at least every year.I first viewed it over the course of four evenings and each time, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen with Jean and Joe.At the beginning of the movie, Jean is on the island of Malaya with her brother and a group of English workers.The Japanese overtake the island and cart off the men, apparently to a work camp.They force the women and children of the group to walk from place to place with accompanying soldiers.We see the woman at times afraid, at times bold, on the verge of giving up, yet determined to keep on.We see them sick, hungry and dirty.We watch some of them die.This is where the movie is the most engrossing.The characters are well developed and I almost felt as if I was marching right along with them.I came to love the character of Jean--she's smart and determined and also has a lot of compassion and a sense of humor.One of the best parts of the movie is when this rag tag group of women and children meet up with two Australian prisoners of war.There's an immediate attraction between Jean and one of the prisoners, Joe, and his energy infuses Jean with new life during the short time they are together.After the war, Jean inherits a large amount of money.She has never forgotten Joe and after much time and effort on both their parts, Joe and Jean get together again--this time in Australia.Jean uses her determination and smarts to develops some businesses, all the while wondering if she can make it on the outback.Joe loves Jean, but wonders himself whether or not he can ask her to live the life he loves.Their romance is appealing--they are both strong, independent people who have a passion for life and for each other.If you appreciate a long, thoughtful story with interesting and likeable characters, I would highly recommend this wonderful film.

    This strange experiment in filmed conversation finds three people--a physicist, a poet, a politician--yammering about the environment, science, art, government, and much else, all in an effort either to find or to dispute connections between disparate subjects. There is no story, as such--just lots of chatter (much of it not particularly profound) shot against a variety of picturesque backgrounds. If director Bernt Capra thought this would turn out to be another Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars MINDWALK!I will never be the same again!
    I saw this movie by accident, by surfing the stations, and now I will never be the same again!I have been living in a "Verbal Cocoon" and not in Reality, no not really, but I feel alot of people are and do. What is interesting is to read all 78 reviews, at this point of time and see how each person abstracts different views and feelings of the movie.I want to thank Amazon, that they have this feature of open reviews, weather they are Good, bad or indifferent. I feel that is what the movie reflexs, that our enviroment reflects how we see and observe or self and life.General Semantics refers to this as "Map to the Territory".The Map is what is going on inside our head, and the Territory is what is going on outside our head. Maps are not all that reliable, as they have to be changed to fit the territory, that which is going on outside your head.One purpose of Education, is to continue to update the map, which is in your head, to the ever changing Territory, which is outside your head.Example. When you go to a college or High School reunion, the people you remember, say 20 years ago are not the same as now, so you update that map to fit the new territory.Mindwalk, lets your mind open up and seefuture territories, and the ever changing ways of life. First off there are NO answers, only temporary solutions, for the World and universe is in a continue state of flux. If you look at nature,It is not black and white, it is in all degrees, the weather, the sky, the colors, not in absolutes. In nature there is no right or wrong, only process. It doesn't matter what a thing is, what does it DO!The life unexamed is not worth living, Know thy self! You never can define a word completely, for then you have to define the words in the defination and so on, therefore you have to have a point of reference to go by.What can be shown can't be SAID!I find all this comes out in the movie.I find it would be better on DVD, as then you could pause it after each important discourse.I find the book "Levels of knowing and Existence by Harry L. Weinberg also the book people in Quandaries, by Wendell Johnson, will benifit your Thinking process, in this ever Global-warming ever changing World.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The life feels itself!
    Based on the famous book "Turning point" of Fritoj Capra, this unusual movie is a true food for thinking around a great variety of important issues that surrounds us; an intrepid journey through the diverse spheres of the knowledge, from the atom's nature, the environmental subjects,the concept of evolution understood as untiring expression of creativity, science's ethic; sharp reflections around a vast number of aspects that concerns us in minor or major grade.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Haunting, Very Disturbing, Very Good!!!
    These two women deserved so much more credit than they got for this movie back then.Two of the very best performances in movie history.Anne Bancroft and Sissy Spacek have that rare talent that comes through in every role they have played.In the original play Sissy's character was played by the great Kathy Bates who I here did an incredible job at it.The movie version of the play is a great adaptation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant !
    WOW! Brilliantly written work and adaption to film.Sissy Spacek and Anne Bancroft could not have nailed this performance more perfect, amazing talent.Marsha Norman seems to have captured the "Sane Suicidal", something I'm not aware has been accomplished to this degree.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I say No Mamma!
    I know about alot of movies before I even ever see them this was one of those movies that took me forever to see. when I got around to it I was simply blown away. sissy plays a woman who decides to kill herself! no ends and's or but's she simply is going to do it. telling her mother before she does the final act. I guess what touchs me most about this movie is all that happens in one's life before it's over. not the fact that she is going to kill herself. also alot of stuff having to do with self confidence. there were things in the movie about what sissy thought of herself and why she felt so alone in the world. as simple as getting fired from a job because the way she looked at people to one of her mom's friends saying her hands were too cold. to the failed mothering of her child gone wrong to failed marriage to husband cecil to losing her father. these things might all seem depressing but in one's life alot takes place. all these things have touched a cord and sissy decides to get off the bus. what you get is a touching story and a wonderful film about a mothers attempt to save her child that has decided to take her life. 2 wonderful timeless performances from both actress's. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Man Follows His Star
    This is one of the finest 60's westerns dealing with man's struggle for independence, overshadowed by "Hud," though far more entertaining a film. An incredible lineup, a cast of stars and future stars if you watch closely:Bill Bixby(helo pilot), Walter Matthau, George Kennedy, Gena Rowlands and Bill Rausch. A year later you would know Rausch as the one-armed man Dr. Richard Kimble chased for 4 seasons on "The Fugitive." Adapted from,"Brave Cowboy," a simple story about a drifter-cowboy who didn't like fences, this is more fleshed out, with Kirk Douglas trying totalk sense into his friend, by breaking in jail with him, a plausible sub-plot to explain his visit. Douglas has some touching scenes with Gena Rowlands where, at times, he struggles with his conscience and allegiance to his friend. Nevertheless, Douglas escapes and the entire locals pursue. Douglas and his valiant horse outwit all armed forces aganst him as he ascends the mountains to freedom, leading to a terrifying, heart-wrenching climax on a rain-swept highway. The on-lccation scenes are sparingly shot, symbolically at times, never slowing the suspense. There are poetic moments and moments of stark violence, handled with deft assurance. One of those black and white movies that explores the grays as well, you sit in your seat it a daze. Then in a few moments you realize you were experiencing screen "realism." You just want to jump into the screen and run off with Douglas. A rarity. The classic.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great story and a great film
    One of Kirk Douglas' best roles, and a moving film in all respects, well-acted by the superb cast. Contrasts the remnants of the "old west" personified by Douglas, with the "new" west of social activism, progress and consumer products, property--and most symbolically, highways that cut up and limit the open range. When the Old resists the New, the New must deal with the Old on its own terms: humor and respect, but ultimately tragedy, are the results. This movie deserves to be released on DVD as soon as possible!

    4-0 out of 5 stars An Underappreciated Minor Classic
    This semi-forgotten 1962 film is a small, lost treasure featuring Kirk Douglas as a cowboy who can't quite come to terms with the modern world. The excellent cast includes Gena Rowlands as the wife of Douglas' best friend, a woman who has little use for the old-world notions of either man; Walter Matthau in an underrated portrayal of a sheriff torn between his admiration for Douglas and his duty to track him down; and Carroll O'Connor in his pre-Archie Bunker days as a truck driver whose path unexpectedly crosses with that of the fugitive cowboy. The film has some quaint morals and notions, and George Kennedy is a bit one-dimensional as a thuggish cop, but these are quibbles. Overall, it's a tightly told and well acted story that neatly crossed genres, featured one of Douglas' most charismatic leading performances, and tackled the theme of old Western individualism vs. the System a good seven years before "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" plowed similar ground. Keep an eye out for it on DVD, because its beautiful black-and-white vistas deserve a new digital rendering. ... Read more

    This movie has everlasting usefulness as a teaching tool for kids AND adults. It should be put on DVD and marketed vigorously. It teaches values, work ethic, appreciation and much much more
    5-0 out of 5 stars We Love It
    I've never read the book but we love the movie. I've always wanted to read the book but never found time, not much of a reader. I still intend to read it someday but until then this really is an enjoyable movie. I find unrealistic bloopers in movies about how people would really act in any give situation and I have always felt comfortable with the realisticness of this movie. Love it.

    Editorial Review

    Missionaries travel to the Brazilian rain forest and make a mess of everything. What else is new? Actually, plenty in this dark but beautifully realized adaptation of Peter Matthiessen's well-regarded novel, directed by Hector Babenco. Aidan Quinn, Daryl Hannah, Kathy Bates, and John Lithgow play the Americans who travel to the Brazilian interior in an effort to do some good. But their definitions of good vary wildly; Bates and Lithgow are old-fashioned puritans who want to convert the heathens to Christianity and remove all traces of their own culture. Quinn and Hannah are more spiritually minded, hoping to make a connection and a cultural exchange with the Indians they encounter. In the end, they're all delusional, trapped in their own preconceptions. Downbeat but magical in its way, with sterling performances all around and amazing scenery, to say the least. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding in the "Fields"
    I too have been waiting for this film on DVD..I have read the book twice and wholeheatedly endorse everything the director and amazing actors submitted themselves to,,(heat, general lack of amenities etc ) to bring us this absolutely great flick. I also love the similarly placed Aguirra Wrath of God,,what ever HACK wrote the New Yorker Summary as it appears above,should be suspended by his thumbs orbetter yet,whatever,,he missed the point totally,,saying the mid 60 attitudes have changed,,HA! Stupid would-be reviewer would probably make a similar statement about Pride & Prejudice or War and Peace,,buddy,we are talking universals here some things never change not will they ever,,,I wish Amazon would remove the big blurb described it does no good whatsoever,,having said my piece I will retreat and brood,,

    4-0 out of 5 stars Waiting for DVD
    This is one of the best movies I've had a privilege to view.But waiting for the DVD has been forever, where is it? When do we get a chance to see this happening. Thank you

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bates gives incredible performance!
    This is a 1991 film, but don't miss it! It's a rather long tale, but you won't be bored a single minute. Bates gives a stellar performance as the wife of a missionary sent to convert the 'jungle natives'. When the mission goes very wrong, she goes mad. Berenger plays a native american who flies them in on a plane, and after he sees the bravery of a jungle native, strives to return to his 'wild heritage' by heading out to join the tribe. It's a great tale of how horribly wrong things can go when the white world tries to force their ways upon a primitive culture. It's a very deep, passionate, historic movie that warrants being watched at least twice. All the actors seem to 'feel' the importance of its message and give their roles one-hundred percent. Bravo!

    C'mon when are these people going to wise up and release this fantastic movie on DVD.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Angus: A great movie! Needs a DVD release!
    "Angus" is a movie about a shy 14 year old who doesn't fit in. He is humiliated and picked on by others at school, and spends most of his time hanging out with his friend, another outsider named Troy, and his grandfather, and dreaming of being with the school's hottest cheerleader, Melissa Lefevre. One day, his dreams come true, somewhat, when he is chosen to dance with Melissa at the Winter Ball. However, the set up was planned by Melissa's boyfriend, and Angus' arch nemesis, Rick Sanford. Angus decides to finally stand up to Rick, and lets him know that he prefers to be different.
    5-0 out of 5 stars "Superman is not brave..."
    ok, so yeah. This movie is like.... awesome! I was in florida on vacation when my mother first saw it and she told me on the phone that I had to see it because all she thought while watching the movie was that it was my life. honestly, anyone who has ever been the pet whipping boy of their school should see this movie. hell, anyone wh ever bullied someone because they were different should see it, they may learn a lesson from it. from the beginning it grabs your attention and holds it all the way through the end. I really wish they would hurry up with the dvd release of it. the soundtrack is phenominal. I still get funny looks when people are looking through my cd case and find the CD with a blowup doll on it. lol. one song that I l;oved in the film, however is not one the soundtrack. for any of you looking for this song it's by peter gabriel and it's called the washing of the water. but aside from the soundtrack. WATCH THIS MOVIE. especially if you haven't yet grasped the concept that "there is no normal" ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Gives a good understanding of the tragedy and the events leading up to it.
    The Jonestown tragedy had previously been made into the exploitation film "Guyana - Crime of the Century". However, this TV production, with a running time of about three hours gives a betterunderstanding of how it could happen. The story starts when Jim Jones is a child, being indoctrinated by a Christian fundamentalist friend. He starts the integrated People's Temple Church after discovering how racist the established churches in San Francisco are. He really wants to do something good for the community and he does, but power corrupts and the church turns into more of a money making cult and Jones turns into a cruel leader. His drug use and paranoia doesn't make things better. After moving to Guyana, Jones has complete control over his folloers, and with him as a leader, Jonestown is headed for destruction.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Before Waco,Before Heaven's Gate.
    Jim Jones,A crazy preacher brainwashes his People's Temple cult to move from Illinios,I think to Jonestown.Africa,where they are forced to drink a Kool-Aid laced with syinide. Jim Jones himself had jungle fever,so he was dying anyway. Some of the People's temple did get away. The People's Temple did call Jim Jones"DAD"

    2-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but highly inaccurate
    Powers Boothe, while obviously talented and provided a strong character, he did not capture the real Jim Jones in any sense.This movie is so full of inaccuracies that it is not worth viewing to obtain any true information regarding the Peoples Temple movement. I would recommend some of the documentaries such as Purple Haze or the A & E Biography of Jim Jones-Journey into Madness.I found this motion picture misleading and almost total fiction as I know many, many family members and survivors of Peoples Temple and have written/researched Peoples Temple extensively. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Five star performance by Diane Keaton, as always
    I'm in awe on how great an actress Diane Keaton is!Her performance in this film, though a very sad film, was awesome!!!I'm addicted to all her movies.When will this movie and some of her old movies be available on DVD? She's such an excellent actress that all her movies should easily be available to the public- especially on DVD format.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another look at a darker side of life in the seventies
    Even today, this movie that made a statement on the debauchery of the seventies, is still relevant. The story of a young lady out on her own for the first time, free from her morality preaching catholic dad and hungry to indulge in the night life. A frequenter of the area bar scene, Dianne Keaton in perhaps her sexiest, if not most provocative role hops from dive to dive, man to man in an attempt to whet her insatiable sexual appetite. An interesting, if dark look at the bar scene and all its unpredictability. Directed with a style of its own, and a good eye for character development, "Goodbar" is an excellent film - one of the best of the seventies. It's also one of the most chilling endings of any movie I've ever seen - one that leaves you almost gasping. Much of the subject matter of this film won't have the same shocking effect it had upon it's original release in the mid-seventies. Today's premium cable original programming (eg. "Queer as Folk) make this minor league stuff by comparison. But that doesn't make this movie any less disturbing. This is still a movie that is just as applicable to today's careless adventures into the night life. Tuesday Weld, Tom Berenger, Richard Kiley, Levar Burton and William Atherton ("Die Hard's" pain in the butt news reporter) are perfectly cast and make notable contributions. And Richard Gere in one of his earliest roles gives a performance that surely got him future roles.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the all-time best!
    I have this movie on VHS and it is one of my favorite movies to watch!Now, will somebody please explain why Paramount has yet to release this on DVD! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Could well be the best DVD on the market
    Given that the movie is wonderful, perhaps the last of the great Hollywood musicals and a charmer for all generations, this DVD is still remarkably wonderful. Disney has done a clean-up job on the film that makes it shine. The audio is rich and wonderful, including the all-important ORIGINAL stereo soundtrack (feh to multi-channel remixes!). The special features even manage to elucidate the process of filmmaking in manner intriguing to both the cineaste parent and Mary-mad children.
    5-0 out of 5 stars thank you, Julie and Dick (and Walt, of course)!
    I think I like this movie more now than when I was a kid! And the extra features on this 2-DVD set are absolutely wonderful. Great interviews with Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, one of the Sherman brothers (songwriter), and the girl who played Jane that really show how special the movie-making process was, which then translated to joy on the screen.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful story and lovely music
    Mary Poppins must be one of the loveliest filming produced by Disney studios. This musical movie is extremely well produced and has outstanding actor work. The scenes are of high quality despite the whole story was filmed indoors. Even the little part of London was reproduced in Disney studio. The music from Sherman brothers is world famous and well known. When you hear the first tunes, you might say: Hey I've heard that somewhere! Having this DVD on your shelf would please both you and your younger fellows. ... Read more
