hello

janklow came out of the closet to say:
yeah, i was going to say, i don't think this is a documentary. but it is a really excellent film.

5.it has to exist in DVD form somewhere, because some of us (myself included) own it on DVD.

There was an old version that went out of print two years ago or so, but a new double disc special edition is coming out in early 2005. Feb I think.

This is a really spectacular movie. It's very different from other boxing films, particularly in the way it presents the actual fights, and it also gives generous amounts of attention to the characters' backgrounds and their relationships. This is Scorsese at his best, with DeNiro, Chapman (the DP) and Schrader (the writer) also all on top form. With the exception of After Hours, this is probably Scorsese's best outing so far.
