Gorgeous Film With Fine Performances - Why No Release?
For many years I treasured my 4:3 VHS copy of this film, assuming it had been photographed on 16mm on a very low budget. As it turns out this is not the case. Two years ago this film appeared on Netflix Instant in HD. It was available for about six weeks before disappearing without a trace. I watched it in full, stunned to see a gorgeously photographed 35mm film in crystal clear widescreen. One of the things you cannot appreciate when watching the VHS copy is the stellar art direction and costume design. The lush pastel colors, the swampy Florida locations, the 1950s cars, the grimy office interiors. It's all vividly presented. I wish the company or persons sitting on that HD copy would release it on bluray or put it back up somewhere for a while. This film is one of those lost 1980s films that deserves a wide release.
