A few words about…™ Obsession – in Blu-ray

4 Stars

Obsession is what one gets, when two superb filmmakers (Brian De Palma & Paul Schrader) have an obsession.

A slightly different take on Hitchcock’s Vertigo.

And a fun ride.

Based upon a new master, provided by Columbia, one should presume going in, that the quality will be superb.

And it is.

They’ve done right by Vilmos Zsigmond’s soft and etherial cinematography.

Interesting experiencing a different riff by the same composer, on a very similar subject.

Thanks to Scream Factory for adding this to their superb list of releases.

  1. Had to order this, after watching a trio of recent lovely remastered Shout titles: When Harry Met Sally, Get Shorty and The Jerk. The is one De Palma I haven't seen either and he seems to be served quite well on blu ray. There are rumours that Scarface will get a 4K UHD release this year too….

    Another review states that this is the same eight year old master used by Arrow:
