I saw the re-release at Best Buy and the back cover didn't list any special features, but I didn't buy it so I can't verify.

Unless I hear differently, I assume that this release is simply a catalog dump, with nothing new or improved.

However, The Grifters is not perfect. Despite solid performances, a decent script, and visual effectiveness, it seems to be missing something, and is unfortunately flawed as all good noir characters are. Perhaps it's a little too long, or the script isn't quite good enough, or the tempo is a tad too low...I couldn't put my finger on it.

But no-one suggested it was "perfect", right? It was nominated for 4 Oscars - and got stiffed. It has a 7.0 on IMDb and a 7.5 here. The BRDC review straddled the fence : "With caveats noted, The Grifters comes Recommended". It's just a nice little movie with some solid moments - certainly not perfect. I'm not even sure if it's fans are fanatical enough to grant it cult status.

Memphis : But far more fortunate are those lucky few who are truly loved.

You can only have too much ammo if you're on fire or swimming.

It is odd it has no features listed. I assumed it was a re-issue but why would they leave off the features on the back if it's the same disc?

I bought it but can't test it until Monday, I'm on vacation.

Could it be that there is not one redeeming character in the film?

I loved it! When Best Buy had this on sale for $4.99 I rushed down there to get it. Dark, crazy, funny movie and I couldn't believe the price!

Don't get what's going on with this re-release but I won't rebuy unless I hear it's significantly better in picture quality and I'm not hearing that.

That's why I liked it. Nasty people all the way around.
