Count me in for BELOVED on blu-ray.
The film has a big gaping hole in the center. A certain something at the heart of Maya Angelou's story that isn't being expressed by Oprah Winfrey's performance. She just didn't have the talent to pull it off. She is the reason audiences stayed away. And yet there are much worse performances in bigger hit movies. Despite the disappointment of Oprah in the lead role, BELOVED is a true original and a unique film well-told and beautifully crafted by Jonathan Demme and company. It deserves another chance on blu-ray.
I'll buy it.
