Reader review

 

Criterion's remastering is superb: the film has never looked as good as it does here in a beautiful 4K digital restoration. The music sounds fantastic, almost as if it were newly recorded using the latest digital technology. I cannot imagine a stronger argument for re-mastering the entire Beatles catalog than listening to how exciting and alive they sound in high resolution audio. The 3-disc set also contains a DVD version of the movie, DVD extras including a making-of film, several documentaries, interviews, Richard Lester's short film that won him the job and more.

The Beatles were the antidote for the post-war years in England and the complacent 1950s in America. They gave so much joy and superb music to the world and this film is as good a monument to their achievement as any I can think of. If you love this movie you owe it to yourself to see it in this pristine re-mastered version. If you haven't a clue as to what the Beatles once meant to a generation, this is where to begin discovering the answers. A Hard Day's Night is a modern icon and it has never looked and sounded so wonderfully alive.

The Celluloid Closet: Homosexuality in the Movies

Reader review

 

The Celluloid Closet provides usefeul information about the presence of gay/lesbian imagery in film as a reference guide. What I find most useful is the discussion of what did not make it to the screen. Russo discusses scenes, such as that between Tony Curtis and Laurence Olivier in Spartacus, which were removed before release. These scenes may not have impacted society as much as final scenes, but they are important when conidering the internal politics that shaped Hollywood. Russo is careful to acknowledge both the negative and positive aspects of visability, and to distinguish between visability and comic stereotyping. Probably more useful as a reference book than an enjoyable read, this book is packed with useful information from which people can start their own research/opinion making
