Default William Friedkin's JADE (1995)

I just did a search and saw that nobody had created a thread for this movie yet.

It's definitely not one of Friedkin's best, but it has a great cast and it's somewhat entertaining. Unfortunately, the blu-ray is not the director's cut.

The blu-ray is apparently OOP at the moment. Very few retailers have it in stock. The best deal seems to be from inetvideo through Amazon (Link). They're selling it for $7.99 ($10.97 after shipping).

Women apparently are attracted to men who act like David Caruso in this film.

The Director's Cut was only ever released on VHS.

In the category of Basic Instinct, Body Double, and other sensual suspense movies, Jade is an erotic thriller.

You can get the Director's cut in hi-def on the Playstation Network if you have a PS3.


Other than that, the Director's cut was never released in blu.

Kick ass car chase though. Not his best, but he does pretty good with "real" cars, compared to the supercar chases in F&F or NFS. French Connection is his best, then To Live and Die In LA, then this. Also a decent chase in The Hunted with a Dodge Spirit! Oh, I miss classic car chases.

Yes, that's the only good thing about the film. I remember going to see this because Linda Fiorentino was fantastic in The Last Seduction and Jade was the first film to trade on her new found fame, but the film didn't seem to know what to do with her.

Michael Biehn's mustache in this movie earns 3 stars all by itself.

And I also love the Chinatown car chase. First slow-speed car chase ever? Whatever. It works.

The rest is crap, but you picks your Eszterhas, you takes your chances.

I'm one of the few people who really like this film (director's cut, that is). I think it's a wonderfully sleazy and immensely entertaining neo-noir, with a sterling cast (yes, even David Caruso and Michael Biehn), and another one of the best car chases on film. My third fave Friedkin after SORCERER and TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A. A crying shame that the Blu-ray is a bare-bones presentation of the sadly butchered version. I'm watching my trusty old VHS of the director's cut right now.

I like both of David Caruso's 1995 failed, leading man/movie star attempt films: Kiss of Death and Jade. Kiss of Death being the better film, while Jade is quite entertaining from start to finish. Too bad they both bombed. I liked Caruso in both, and saw them both in the theater. Have them both on DVD, didn't even know Jade was available on Blu. They were playing the director's cut on one of the movie channels a few years back.

I'm pretty sure Warner would have the rights to the film now through their Paramount deal.
