    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Last Detail -- in Blu-ray

    Hal Ashby's wonderful The Last Detail is a film that just works. While many will point to the performances by Jack Nicholson, Otis Young and Randy Quaid, with a delightful turn by Carol Kane, I'd probably point more toward the screenplay by Robert Towne, without whom... The gritty...

    Nothing gets past the technical crew at Sony. Where a little picture like Vampires might have received second shrift elsewhere, not at Columbia. Vampires, at least to my eye, is played with a good dose of dry humor. Made between Escape from L.A., and Ghosts of Mars, the film is a fun trip...
