Saturday Night Fever is not a polite movie. Or a feel-good buffet of sunny escapism. It's a frequently gritty slice-of-life character drama, stocked with complicated characters, illustrating some hard, uncomfortable truths.
My opinion of what I've seen so far of the Suspiria remake is...[shrug]...why'd they bother?
Having read and enjoyed the novel it was based on, I thought the film turned out to be a shallow and dumbed-down disappointment.
Reached #11 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, September 3rd, 1977.
When I put together this Fake Criterion cover a few years ago, I never dreamed this 1977 Made-for-TV movie would get an actual Blu-ray release.
Wait a minute. This is supposed to be 1977. Why are they playing a song from 1979?
