Is this disc any good?. I am a huge peter o toole fan.. would I like it?
The disc is great, and if you've not seen the film, you are in for one heck of a performance. The image is not perfect, but this film is well worth owning.
http://Here is the thread where it w...n its release. In short, as Jeff has said, it is not without its flaws (inherent to the source elements and film production methods), but it is well worth owning. It has never looked better on video.
It made my Top 10 DVDs of 2001 list. I'd say for someone who called himself a Peter O'Toole fan, this disc is an absolute must. Buy it, already.
Or you could always rent it. I remember not liking this movie that much after renting it on tape several years ago. I'm not sure whether it was the longer UK cut, the much better image presentation, or just a change in my tastes, but I really enjoyed the Criterion DVD.
It's a very Sixties movie in visual style and over-the-top concept - sort of half music-hall and half hysterical (both senses) drama. Give it a try - it's got a great, and very hammy, O'Toole performance.
