My all time favorite film. released in 1987, this film was strangely overlooked for Oscar consideration, as it was on many film critics best of list for that year. Pure magic from start to finish. This is the kind of film you watch, and forget everything around you for a couple of hours. I have 2 films that I regret not seeing on the big screen. My first would be this film, and the second is Hoosiers. I have been waiting for a dvd release since I bought my first dvd player in 98. I still have my vhs, but I don't even have my vcr hooked up anymore. Does anyone know if it's up for a dvd release? It was released through Columbia Pictures, but I don't know their track record for dvd releases. I would truly love it to be part of the Criterion collection, because it is a very good film, and deserves all the extras the fans could possibly want.
