This film is so Great because it is full of contrasts. One minute it is
the most funny unbelievable thing you've ever seen and the next your in
tears. The sadness and the hilarity are spliced together with moments
of shock and horror. Tobacco Road exposes the sweet, sensitive and
loving qualities of humanity, and at the same time remind us that we
are riddled with meanness, selfishness, and stupidity. I have watched
this film many times and never tire of viewing it, it always moves me.
It has been one of my very favorites since I first saw it on American
I just can't believe that it hasn't been remastered and released on DVD!!! I believe it was released on VHS years ago, it is super hard to find and goes for big $'s (and who uses VHS anymore anyway?) C'mon Criterion get with it, this movie deserves it. I got so desperate to see this Masterpiece that I bought a VHS copy on eBay but it is so terrible, blurry, fuzzy, and the sound inaudible, I would not dare share it with anyone because none of the Genius would be conveyed. This guy on eBay was selling lots to folks like myself wishing to have our own so we could watch it again and again, and share this Great Film with friends. It's the only film in my top 10, that hasn't been, or isn't scheduled for remastering. Come on re-master executives, what's the problem?
