Script beautifully structured with no abuse of long explanatory sentences
By Amazon Customer
Script beautifully structured with no abuse of long explanatory sentences. gorgeous Cinematography by a master Hungarian. Very well directed, the plot arrives to it's crucial moment in a very casual way; no exploitation of violence or nudity; the story shows, in a pretty good style the universal question of GOOD and Evil, Authenticity vs hypocrisy, tolerance vs bigotry. The acting is superb.
Every well educated, well informed person in the USA should watch this movie, because it will allow them to visualize all the bad things that drag down all of us.

I remember this movie fondly
By Keith Bickel
What's to add to the other reviews?
I remember this movie fondly from the drive-in with my girlfriend & a couple of 6-packs in about 1971. The drug induced scenery in the graveyard is kind of bogus, but it was a low budget film, & most likely different acid. And yes folks, there really were parts of the country exactly as shown in the movie back then... not all in the deep south either.
Glad to find a copy at a real good price. Picture & sound repro. are good.

The movie is 47 years old but criterion did a great job on it
By Ronald W
Just got this new addition yesterday, originally had the 40 year anniversary edition Blu-ray. Everyone knows about the movie it's a classic so let's get to the quality. The movie is 47 years old but criterion did a great job on it, the colors are solid and focused. It's not perfect but what movie is? The 5.1 Dolby surround was also excellent, all the music sounded great. Just to satisfy myself I put on the 40 year anniversary edition just to see the difference. The copy was good but criterion was better all around, the music was very similar. If you're interested in picking up this addition it comes highly recommended plus the extras were also good.I doubt if the movie could get any better than this Quality wise, enjoy.
