The Birthday Party

Avoid DVD

(Edit) 18/08/2020

Was looking forward to the film - fan of Joseph Losey's Pinter adaptions from the 60s and looking forward to seeing one of Friedkin's first features. However didn't end up watching as the DVD print in circulation [as of August 2020] here on Cinema Paradiso is horrible.

Should have guessed based on the tackily printed disc - it's one of those horrible bargain-bin releases from the early 2000s. Film looks like a VHS rip and it's cropped to the wrong aspect ratio. One scan through the chapters and returned right away.

Such a shame that all of Friedkin's work hasn't been restored by this point but if I want to watch a low quality copy, I'll do it for free on the internet thank you very much!
