    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.

    Image - 5

    Audio - 5

    Pass / Fail - Pass

    Upgrade from DVD - Totally

    Very Highly Recommended

    Great news! Too bad the original ending is not available as an extra.

    I'd be curious how this measures up to the Arrow version. Got a mini-copy of the original script with that.

    It seems they used a still from De Palma’s 2012 film Passion in error.

    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....

    Since the question was asked and not answered - has no one compared this to the UK Blu?

    RAH stated in the review this was a new master - the Arrow was originally released in 2011 (re-released in 2013)

    I guest Eddie Haskell stole the Beav's copy ;) as he only has the Arrow review up
