    Barbet Schroeder's More (1969) was a film that I saw theatrically while in film school. I've forgotten neither Mimsy Farmer, nor the beautiful cinematography of Nestor Almendros.

    All things change.

    That was apparently then, and this is now, and on DVD.

    While I'd like to be able to recommend this film, I cannot.

    Home Vision, which normally does quite nice work, has dropped the ball on this one.

    More looks to be derived from a PAL master, converted to NTSC, which means that to the reasonably trained eye, anything moving quickly is going to be blurred, much like the recent Chaplin collections, the silent Phantom of the Opera and others.

    It is simply not film-like, and a pity.

    Stay away.
