Demme’s film is a repository for his comic, aesthetic, and observational gifts, and it receives a solid Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
It looks and sounds incredible on the new Blu-ray, though more adventurous viewers may yearn for some thornier supplements.
The film remains a stunning collective of method acting and 1970s social critique.
This mixed bag of a movie is so good on divorce, plate-smashing fights, and the bad behavior of disappointed lovers that it remains a small classic.
Not only the finest work by Albert Finney and Diane Keaton and a major, unwieldy film about breaking up, Shoot the Moon is also Tina Yothers's finest hour.
