MGM Settling The Score ???
22 October 2006 | by (amsterdam) – See all my reviews

Marlon Brando, gloriously over the top here, disliked the movie industry. Were there any particular bad feelings towards MGM ?

It seems to be so, since this Studio first of massacred the truly great film THE FUGITIVE KIND, in which Brando shines (and seems to be the fore-bearer of Nick Cage in 'Wild At Heart'), by distributing it as a DVD-release that might very well be the worst around, easily as bad as the Fox Lorber atrocities.

And now there is the release of this unique film. Celebrating two icons who never played together in any other film (Nicholson and Brando), with a strong supporting cast (Oh yes, Miss Lloyd plays her Jane as unglamorous as possible and achieves a good and lasting impression !!) and superb camera-work.

That is, if you can see it on this DVD... The image, supposedly in the Aspect Ratio of 1.85 : 1 according to the info on the box, is so horribly cropped we might as well call this Pan & Scan. Furthermore, there has been made no effort to have the film look proper; the footage has been slapped onto the DVD unceremoniously and without any care.

WHY ??! What did Brando do to MGM to have them hating him so much ??!!

Or should we be thankful that this studio has taken the trouble of giving us this DVD of a FANTASTIC one-of-a-kind FILM, which has been trashed by 'those who know' for so many decades ? Even if it means that the quality of the DVD is stupendously bad ???

Dear executives of MGM, please give us your wonderful films in a way it will be a true treat to watch them ?!

Thanks...
