Cutter's Way is one of only a handful of TT releases I own. It was alright, certainly not bad, but I didn't think it was that great either.

Speaking of the Bridges clan, TT has a film with a fine performance by brother Beau Bridges going up for preorder tomorrow, namely THE INCIDENT (1967).

Checked out the BD of Paul Mazursky's great "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice" last night. The film tells the story of two couples, Bob and Carol (Robert Culp and Natalie Wood) and Ted and Alice (Elliott Gould and Dyan Cannon). Bob is a documentary filmmaker, who attends a retreat in Northern California while Carol joins him. It's a retreat disguised as, "Hey, come find yourself" that's actually a "Hey, sex is fun. Have as much sex as possible with as many people as you can," retreat. Bob and Carol are both affected by their experience and soon subscribe to the philosophy of free love and desire having sex with other partners. They try to get Ted and Alice in on the fun, but both resist initially. However, Ted and Alice soon want to try the new lifestyle, but, eventually, all of them find out they aren't as cut out for the free love lifestyle as they initially thought.

The four main leads are all fantastic in this. Culp is ultra-confident and is of the mindset that, "I can f**k around and have a great wife at home, but she better not do it to me." Wood is slowly testing Culp, aware that he's naive of the power that she has on men and eager to use it. Gould is curious, but somewhat torn between the tempting free-love philosophy and his devotion to his wife. Cannon is more conservative in nature, not comfortable with what Bob and Carol are espousing, but reluctant to be left behind and be deemed prudish or old-fashioned.

It's a wonderful film. It intelligently comments on how people often want to keep up with current trends even if it's not in their true nature. It also is a very bold commentary on sex and the difference between physical and emotional attraction. Natalie Wood and Dyan Cannon, circa 1969, were both impossibly beautiful women. You can't take your eyes off of them. But Culp and Gould's characters, both flawed men, are tempted to stray because there is this possibility that something greater and more sexually adventurous could be out there.

I read that this film was the top-grossing film of 1969. Think about how much things have changed. A small, dialogue-based film with swinging and partner-swapping at the center was the top-grossing film of 1969. This film would be lucky to make a million at the box office today, unfortunately.

This is Paul Mazursky's debut film and he shows the ability he displayed throughout the 70s and early 80s. His filmography is sorely under-represented on Blu-Ray. Hopefully, we will eventually see BDs of some of his other films like "Blume in Love", "Harry and Tonto", "Next Stop, Greenwich Village", "An Unmarried Woman", and "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" at some point. This BD features a top-notch transfer as well.

Not quite. Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid was the top grossing movie of 1969 leader by a country mile.

You're right. This was #5. I must have misread something or gotten bad info. But "Easy Rider", "Midnight Cowboy", and this film were three of the top five. That's insane when you think about it.

It's definitely depressing to see how the masses' tastes have changed for the worse.

Last night I pulled Bunny Lake is Missing from my mile-high stack of unwatched BD. What an interesting film. I found the story of sibling love and madness mixed with police procedural, and its offbeat nature, all quite compelling.

One of the most interesting aspects of the film is Preminger's choice of cast. From the little I've read about the great director, he had a reputation as a demanding and exacting taskmaster who intimidated actors. Yet in Carol Lynley and Keir Dullea, he cast relative unknowns as the film's sibling protagonists, and surrounded them with some of Britain's most accomplished talent (Laurence Olivier, Noel Coward, Martita Hunt, Finlay Currie, etc). While Lynley acquits herself well, Dullea simply looks like he is trying too hard, and comes across as an enthusiastic amateur. However, their presence in the film playing against established greats certainly does amplify the "fish out of water" aspect of the story.

As the police detective heading up the investigation into the disappearance of a girl who may or may not even exist, Olivier is about as understated as I've ever seen him - his role juxtaposing nicely with the intensity of Lynley's near-permanent emotional turmoil. Coward has a quite remarkable cameo as a kinky landlord, which I enjoyed immensely and which added to the overall quirkiness of the film.

The black and white CinemaScope presentation is extremely solid and pleasing throughout, although at times lacked contrast and seemed a little pale (I'd be interested to compare with the Powerhouse Indicator release from the UK). There is also some excellent camera work that struck me as quite innovative for the time (1965) and seemed a precursor to some of the Steadicam techniques we are familiar with now (following an actor into and then out of a room, etc.).

I think like many viewers, I was able to work out the "twist" before it was revealed, but that didn't spoil the impact at all. In fact, there is plenty to enjoy in multiple repeat viewings. I know the TT release is OOP, but there seem to be copies available around the full retail price. And of course, the Powerhouse Indicator release is region-free.

And don't forget the haunting score by Paul Glass. I bought it on CD from Intrada a couple years ago.

Also, the Twilight Time Blu-ray of BUNNY LAKE has one of the label's best commentary tracks.

And let's not forget Noel Coward's immortal comment on meeting the leading man, "Keir Dullea, gone tomorrow."
"Gentleman, that last remark is not for publication. This is a D notice situation."

It's sold out, and even if it wasn't I question the validity of that page.
