Default Mask (1985) Peter Bogdanovich - Elephant Films 1/17/2018


Mask (1985). Directed by Peter Bogdanovich. Eric Stoltz, Cher, Sam Elliott, and Laura Dern star. Looks like it includes both the Theatrical and Director’s Cuts per the database listing on this site. For the uninitiated, there are different soundtracks for each cut. A Bob Seger soundtrack is on the Theatrical, and a Bruce Springsteen soundtrack is on the Director’s Cut.

If anyone picks this up and can post a review, it’d be much appreciated. I’ll keep an eye out for professional reviews as well, and will link them here if I see any.

EDIT: **The UK is getting a Blu-ray too, but only the Director’s Cut is indicated for that listing.

Nice announcement! I'd rather have the theatrical cut since I'm more of a Bob Seger fan over the Boss. But would also welcome both versions regardless. Thanks OP!

Two member opinions have been posted on Amazon.fr. It's not much to go on, but neither are ringing endorsements.

Quote:
Pas de version française pour le Director's Cut / No French version for Director's Cut

Contrairement à ce qui est indiqué sur la pochette du blu-ray, la version director's cut ne possède pas d'audio français. Le film est en V.O. sous titré en français.Cependant, cela reste un très bon film, émouvant et superbement interprété par Cher et Eric Stoltz dans le rôle de Rocky.

Contrary to what is indicated on the blu-ray cover, the director's cut version does not have any French audio. The film is in French subtitled VO. However, it remains a very good film, moving and superbly interpreted by Cher and Eric Stoltz in the role of Rocky.

Blu-ray médiocre / Poor Blu-ray

Attention, on le paye le prix d'un blu-ray, mais la qualité est plus que médiocre, image pourrie, grosse arnaque, decu

Attention, we pay the price of a blu-ray, but the quality is more than mediocre, rotten image, big scam, decu

Sorry for getting back to you guys so late I was waiting for screencaps to be posted and nothing yet so I opened the set and checked out the discs. Pretty sure both of these cuts are 1080p MPEG-2 encoded transfers that were taken from previous dvd releases. I even checked back on my directors cut dvd and it looks to be the exact same source that was used. Underwhelming to say the least.

Thanks for the review, Jezelle. This is disappointing. If it actually is MPEG-2 encoded, do you think it’s just a lowly DVD upconvert? Or, is it at least a little better than that??

I think it’s just a lowly dvd upconvert. I’d like to know what everyone else thinks it is. It’s like there’s no detail at al, a lot of digital noise too, and the picture is dull and cloudy.

I wonder if the upcoming UK release will differ? I hope so.

I tried to cancel my UK preorder as soon as I read this thread, but of course it was too late. Hopefully it's a better transfer, but I doubt it.

I just came across this listing on Amazon: 'MASK (1985) DIRECTOR'S CUT-RESTORED MASTER-ENGLISH LANGUAGE-BLU RAY REGION FREE (USA compatible)'
Before I go and drop $40.00+ on this, does anyone know if "Restored Master" is actually a new rip for U.S. distribution, or is this the same awful quality that everyone else is reporting?

It's not a "U.S. distribution" but a marketplace seller selling the same French set on Amazon.com. Save your money!
