I agree. I watched it a couple of nights ago after not seeing it for a decade because I couldn't stand that droopy non-anamorphic DVD, and it was such an improvement in my memory from the old to the new that I was ecstatic. I thought the Kit Kat Club scenes were especially vibrant.

Yes, I was pretty much done with that old dvd. This one blows it away! And I felt the film had more overall dramatic impact, properly presented here, as it is. 5 Stars, folks! 5 Stars!

A production of Allied Artists, which turned out to be the little engine that could, Bob Fosse's Cabaret shines, four decades later, as a brilliant gem in the cinema firmament.

I've always loved this film, which absolutely stands the test of time.  One point that has always remained with me, as one of the most chilling to be ever be put on film, comes an hour twenty in, with what appears to be a potentially innocent ballad, begun a cappella, by a lone young man.  This grows as the camera pulls back, with others joining in, to show the emerging power of the Hitler youth movement.


"Cinema firmament".  Are you paraphrasing Lena Lamont in "Singin' in The Rain"?

I, too, find that scene at the outside beer garden most chilling!

Thank you for your guidance and insights of blu-ray releases.  "Most illuminating."
